Jo, I never did hear if you got over your BUG completely...I think yours was different from what seems to be taking turns with the rest of us. GET WELL, LORETTA!
Good morning everyone....call off the silver alert....got to make an appt. to get rid of it;)
good Lord, Jo beat me on this a.m.
Well, Helen, that is why I was concerned. Jo is always the caboose on our train:)
The reason I have just Maggie's' pic on the blog is she is our shining star this Saturday at the POLAR BEAR PLUNGE...will scrounge around and find one of Molly too after this weekend
JIM!---I caught your message about 'PRINCE XI'---Oh yeah---I still check on PRECIOUS!!!
Pandas are cute and wonderful at any stage of the life...jmho;)
Wanda, I was caught up in e-mails this a.m. running late.
THANKS STEVEN & WANDA---Forgot to thanks you two!!---ho!---We did need a new thread!!---
Helen, Jo must be doing the same thing...she has wandered off again:)

Yes I did do that Mits.. That is my first morning thought "Beat Mits" & it helps me get up/running! lolFYI: The train platform pic that we are all anxious to see.... My hubby does have a scanner and would be no problem getting it up in an email on the Momsters. Knowing Ceil she probably already has it in the mail to you Wanda!Thought of Sharon heading for Dr appointment! Sissy - did Mattie go with her? Kevin will love the email about theIce on the water - I'm sure he wants to hear FIRE ON THE WATER
CEIL, I hope the bay doesn't have ice.....brrrrr! It is such an amazing thing on Saturday, to see the thousands of people coming together for such a worthy cause.
I LOVE THE LIVE FEED but MAGGIE'S PICTURE SURE MAKES ME SMILE ALL OVER !
Eagles at Sunset near the nest, what a wonderful thought...just a few paces away from a Sleepover !
Lots of talk about shoes yesterday.How about: Saddle Oxfords !
you got me, Jo;)
I agree, JO, all MITS needs to do is post all day, and we will be bright and sunny.... ☺ ♥
I have just read early morning comments and I would like to post Paula's comments from late last evening: paula eagleholic said... Good evening, dear friends I am back home right now, and plan on going to work on Thursday and Friday. I have a meeting in the morning, so I may not be on much tomorrow.My Mom's wish was to be cremated and placed in Arlington Cemetary columnbarium with my father, which we will do at a later date. Mom kept wanting to go home, and that is where she is now.I am still waiting on a confirmation for her Memorial Mass...Along with the church office being closed due to the holiday and inauguration, the pastor also had a death in the family. We are waiting on confirmation from him on Thursday. My son is still in Jamaica, so we are planning the memorial service for next Friday, January 30th. Her obituary will be in the Washington Post next Tuesday.Mom's passing was very peaceful. The doctors did all they could for her, but her body just couldn't fight any longer. She's fought against this for over 4 months with determination and strength and without any complaint. I know if she could have kept going, she would have. Your thoughts and prayers for my family and I mean more than you know. I just want to thank each and every one of you for your support and love.Hugs, Paula Thursday, January 22, 2009 12:14:00 AM
prayers for Paula and her family:(
DEB---I forgot to tell you that when you were in SUNNY CAL---We had some of your SD weather here in WV-----ho!---we had the coldest weather we have in ages!!---about froze!!---
Good morning. Thanks for posting Paula's comments Jo. I had not looked at the blog yesterday. I hope she is holding up OK.I added three more photos to the end of the gallery I posted the other day. They are at the bottom of the page:New photosBob
Bob, those 3 are breath taking!Love the coloring and the closeness Keep them coming!
Oooh- I like those pics, Bob-of course, I like all your pictures!I gotta agree, I can't look at that picture of Maggie without smiling:) she is just adorable!
OK Wanda - did you roam off?
Maggie's pic even has me laughing for joy every time I see it...Say some more Mits........ lol
when ever I spend time with the M&M girls my face hurts from smiling and my stomach hurts from all the laughing we do.
Glo, just wanted to tell you, I will be taking the eagle blanket on Saturday....the girls love it....they pat it and always say...soft, soft:)
Bob those pictures are beautiful!
Mei Xiang is enjoying a fruitsicle
Paula, you have my prayers.
I know that yesterday when I spent time with the 3 ggkids, I was just amazed at how fast those few hours went bye! They sure know how to touch your heart! Joseph brought an art project for me..he was placing colored paper on this bird figure and he ran out.. He said ok! it can be a bald eagle for Mema! ♥
aww, Jo how sweet:)
I have a blue jay convention going on. I counted 11 of them in my front yard.
Hi Deb - I loved the wedding pics - I am just waiting for more so that we all get to see you! Your aunt is beautiful and looks so happy. Glad everything went well. I thought you were going outscouting for eagles today????
Tai is in Tian's yard right now...looks like he wants to get Mei's attention...probably wants her fruitsicle
Deb, great wedding pics...hope you have more....love the color of the bridesmaids dresses.
man, Norma, you go out to lunch more than anyone I know....have a good one.
Ok, Norma, rub it in...I got a luch date with my dog....
Watching DC pandas - I like it when you are on the cam - today's operator isn't doing so great. The outside views aren't as good as when they are in their dens..
Good Morning Everyone..Prayers for Paula and Family for strength.Bob those last 3 pics where they shot in "HD"....BEAUTIFUL !Steve and John thanks for fixing the cam and thanks for the new thread.
Norma - I am just having my Brunch!
Jo, it is so much easier when they are in the dens...that's why I like the late shift:)
Atlanta Panda - Great pic of our little "never seen" Luney on the Cub updates yesterday.
he is such a cute Giant Panda cub:)
my NBG is down
Jo, I am just about ready to leave. I got in "straighten up" mode and wanted to finish. All travel gear packed back away, laundry done and put away, etc.
NBG was up earlier mine is black screen.Deb have fun..will be looking for pics.Wanda needs the "silver alert"..Norma I'm just eating my breakfast.
Bob, those three pics are "picture perfect"!!! Love them!! Thanks.Yes, Steve and John, thanks for our cam!!
Catalina Report An interesting report from Steffi on Catalina for you.C(°ٿ°)DJim
CANCEL THE SILVER ALERT! We're going to Winchester to pick up Dustin for the long weekend and I had to get his room ready. When he is not here, it is my work out room. I had weights and work out tapes all over the place. Needed fresh bed clothes and extra blankets. He is sooo thin that he gets cold easily.
Just got off the phone with Sharon, Mattie went with her, they were just calling her in to doctor's office, said she will call back
Wanda - I have an extra Heating Blanket...want to borrow it? ☺
Okay, Thanks MITS - She is in Good Company with Mattie...☺
she sounded in good spirits
Alright - all present and accounted for!I guess we won't see you very much thisweekend, Wanda! I know you love havingDustin with you!Sometimes that mode strikes me, Deb but not too often! lol Critterzoom Lake WA nestIf I double click on the LW cam, I get 4 pics to choose from for the other cams.Heron Cam I'm thinking it is live & that I am viewing those 3 that hatched last season.... ?? Anyone know anything?
I was wondering the same thing about the heron nest, Jo. I haven't found any info about it yet.Jim, that was a great Catalina update. I didn't get a glimpse of the island this year. :(I am off, bbl!
Thanks for the update on Sharon. I pray she gets good news - Hope they don't play around with her last drain tube...Will be anxious for your next report Mits
good report, Jim, awesome pics too. I can't keep all the eagles straight out there.
Oh, no thanks, Margy...he would want to pull it apart to see what it is made of and how it works. He is very much like his Granddaddy in that way:)
just heard from Sharon...drain still in, doc wants the binder back on as tight as she can stand it...goes back in 2 weeks.
Thanks Jim for reminding me about those reports. I can't get the Caltrans nest up but the NBG cam is looking good. Too much snow in the ME nest..LW looking really goodOR cam didn't come up - I may not have waited long enough!My sound at our nest is on again & off again...
That was a quickie exam.... I hope she feels up to the drive home now.Prayers of safe travels for them....Hubby's b-day is tomorrow.. Family coming over SAT afternoon just for cake/ice cream. Then we hit the Pizza Hut on Sunday to celebrate ggd Alexis' special day which is really Monday.So I have some things to do & since I am leaving - Keep your eyes on the nest.. They usually come as I leave
Thanks for the Sharon update!Computer screen has gone all blurry, walking away for a while- no silver alert necessary here(I'm much too young for that anyway...ha!)
Seems to me the Heron views might be a replay from last year...I had seen something about that when going to the hook-up for LW Live feed. Just heard from Loretta (via email)....think she is working her way out of the Bug Tunnel...should be checking in soon I hope.. ☺ ♥I was starting to check on driving directions to Forestville!
she was a tad disappointed, but really knew since it was still draining, it would not be taken out, and she said, "it is what it is".
my sound is doing that too, but they are nearby, just heard that funny choking sound
yep, NBG back up:)
Eagle at BWESafe travel wishes to Mattie and Sharon...
Ok Wanda has checked back in. Erase "silver alert".Eagle at BWE 2 in nestNBG back upLW leave blowing in the windOur nest sounds good.bbl hubby needs to drive me someplace
You all type too fast. I can't keep up. Every time I step away from my desk when I come back there are thirty new posts. ☺
Ooopps needed to add safe travels home for Sharon and Mattie.
Jim that was a great report from the islands. Those eyes she has of catching sight of the eagles there.Also neat a juvie back in the area.Have to see about the mating...might be different partners this year. Paula loves that sight. Thinking of you lady. hugs
Bob, you need to stick around longer!!!Poor Sharon...that binder has to be a pain!Time for a bit of lunch, and then heading out for errands and groceries--argh!!!! Talk to you all this evening.
Wish BOB could spend more time photographing our eagles. He tried so hard when he was here at open house, but to now avail. He had a lot of FALSE ALARMS due to one of the Park Police, who claimed he saw the eagles, but when we looked, there was nothing:(
It sounds as if Loretta has the same bug as the rest of us. Her meals include applesauce and jello:(Mine was toast and V-8 juice.
Wind blowing, sun shining, and Eagles calling at Maine..Off to the post office with a pile of late Christmas presents...Good Afternoons to all.xo ☺ ♥
Yikes, poor Loretta, indeed.
Just came in from working in the yard. It is hot! Up to 75 presently. Sure wish it were cooler! Hang in there girls, spring is on the way. My daffodils are starting to bloom and saw some honey suckle and jasmine blossoms as well.
Lolly...you lucky duck:) Spring will be here in about 2 months, well technically it will be here...we have had some wild snowstorms during March
Lolly it is a good thing that you just checked in with us. We were about to call the Texas Rangers and have them put out a SILVER ALERT for you:):)
Saw the sign at the nursery sayingOPENING ON MARCH 1... We'll beincubating eggs by then! WHoo HOoo!Lolly,I sent you an email with some info
FROM ATLANTA PANDA PAGE...Thursday, January 22If you’re hooked on pandas, you know that no, they don’t all look the same. But if you’re a self-proclaimed panda aficionado, would you be prepared for a pop quiz next time you’re asked about your hobby? Don’t be caught saying “I don’t know” at the next party conversation next to the hors d’oeuvres table. We’ve got you covered with Panda Tidbit #1: Most everyone agrees that giant pandas are black and white. However, where the black and white end and begin are different for each panda, and their unique coloration may even be inherited. Take, for example, our own pandas. Yang Yang, our male adult, has a white patch on his otherwise black back foot. Lun Lun, the matriarch, has a few hairs on the tip of her white tail that are black. If you take a close look at their offspring, Mei Lan and Xi Lan, you might see they too each have a black tip on their white tail and white patches on their black back feet.
Any idea on what to buy a 4 yr old ggd who has 'everything' especially right after Christmas & Santa Clause was just here!Think I'll start looking at educational items. She enough Barbies and Princess dolls to fill up her bed!
books or DVD"S, Jo
wax for Red:)
Books are always good, Jo.
I'm not missing Jo. Just have been busy. Going to head back out to the yard shortly, taking a lunch break and Jack has ice on his back.
Jo, have you looked into the subject I mentioned to you on email. Been waiting to hear from you. :)
My Texas does not hold a candle to that cute smiling face. Love it, Helen.
Steve's comment reminds me of our view at sunset when we returned from our train ride. Our two eagles were perched on a limb above the nest.
Jo, just saw your email.
thanks, Lolly:)...she's a keeper:)
Heading back outside. BBL
don't want to jinx it, but, my sound has been on for a couple of minutes now:)
You want to turn it up so we can all hear the wind and don't miss the flapping of wings!!!Thanks for suggestions of books & dvds.
I refreshed and now have the wind tunnel sound... I'll see how long mind stays......
Mine cuts out briefly for about a second and comes back on, they must be away from the tree, I don't hear them.
Mine is doing the same..I doubt with my hearing that I could even hear them up on the limb.Just talked to Germany Gals as they were ending their day.. good bit of snow has been over there for quite a while. They are doing well but Patrick is homesick!!This is going to be a long ole haul for him... Sure wish our new 44th Prez would shorten their tours!
Time for 3:00 half cup of coffee!BBL
I agree, books, books, books!!!
Maggie loves books, she will get one and climb right up into your lap, so you can read it to her.
I was going to say there is an Eagle at BWO but the cop got me.Went back, and they were mating!How about that !
But they are done now.
I saw that Mits. lol
I missed the mating
JO: There is something called "Color Explosion" that Crayola puts out might be of interest. But I agree, books, espcially if they are about Eagles and Pandas, would be a winning idea ! Nap time z z z z xo
I'll send it out, it was a pretty g♥♥d one. xo
don't forget to send it to Lisa too, Margy....
They look so innocent....☺
both EAGLES AT NBG
just 1 eagle at NBG now
Okay, my BWO picture is out there in cyberspace.Now for the nap TTFN xo
a big bird just flew by in the sky, behind LW nest, could have been an eagle
deer at snowmancam
I am composing an email through Eaglet_Momsters concerning what you may wish to do to honor Paula's mom.Once I send it I will also publish it over here for anyone NOT a member of theeaglet Momsters/Dadsters.Need a few.....
For future reference, this is a great website with lots of nature related toys and books and other stuff-it's where I got my one of my butterfly cages. Insect Lore
Mits. When I lived in Canada I lived about 50 miles north of there. We drove down once when it was -16 and the mist was frozen to everything. The snow was so high there was no guardrails so we didn't walk to close to the falls.
Oooh- that is a cool cam, thanks!
you can fool around with the little ball and sometimes get it to move...and at night with the colored lights it is beautiful.....Red, that must have been just awesome to see and feel
I should be going to store, but don't want to miss them, when they come in since sound is so good.
And there you go-EAGLE!!
Moving sticks around- up by cam-
Wow- up close and personal, what a beautiful pic...
EAGLE ALERT our nest!
And it just flew away- not a real long visit, hopefully they'll be back.
And gone, but I captured a beautiful shot...will send it out!
I was on e-mails did I miss it, I heard something, but it must have been the fly off
My sound just disapeared....
The only reason I didn't miss it was cause I heard it fly in..had to refresh to get sound back.
This will be long and most of it a repeat to us bloggers.. The end of the message is the info you will want..On Jan 19th Paula sent a personal email stating that her Mom passed away peacefully on Sunday, Jan 18th. Last evening on our Daily Eagle Blog Paula left this message:Good evening, dear friendsI am back home right now, and plan on going to work on Thursday and Friday. I have a meeting in the morning, so I may not be on much tomorrow.My Mom's wish was to be cremated and placed in Arlington Cemetery column barium with my father, which we will do at a later date.

I just want to thank each and every one of you for your support and love.Hugs, PaulaThursday, January 22, 2009 12:14:00 AMObituary has not yet been published but I know you would want this information that Paula just sent me: We are going to designate the Montgomery County SPCA for donations.Montgomery County SPCAP.O. Box 637Washington Grove, Maryland 20880 However, if people want to donate for the cam, they could send it directly to: The Friends of NCTCAttn: Donna PrintzP.O. Box 1452Shepherdstown, WV 25443 My Mom's Name/Address is Catherine Bartos, 1804 Cullen Dr, Silver Spring, MD 20905. Thanks, Jo. I don't have any internet or computer when I am at my Mom's. The last couple of days have been go, go, go. Today, I'm ready to drop. I've read some emails and some of the blog, but haven't had a chance to respond to individual emails. Hugs, Paula I emailed that no response was necessary to us since we just wanted tobe sure she knew we were there for her. I think that this information is what we needed. Thanks to all you Momsters/Dadsters - Your the greatest group I know!!! ((hugs)) Jo
WOW! They were a bit early - Thought I had time to get back to the cam..Sometimes I am sooooooooo SLOW!-But I can beat some Momsters to the am blog when I think about it..... lolWaiting for pic - Hedgie!!
tee-hee, Jo....I'll race you tomorrow:)
there is a new thread everyone
Thanks for that info, Jo. Hedgie will have to send pic, cause I never have the still cam up-eagle was up close to cam, it was gorgeous, sorry you guys missed it-Just reading the Hagerstown newspaper, police are trying to determine if they have captured the murderer who escaped from jail in Hagerstown Saturday. I hope it's him- makes you nervous when someone like that escapes and is on the loose.
Pic sent...check your mail...also on Momsters yahoo!
