Thanks for new thread, Steve. Have a careful slip-slidey day! I'll go get the others.
Megan, I keep telling my Ranson daughter that I'm jealous of all the neat new places they are getting!!
Thanks Steve for new thread. Thank you Hedgie for heads up.
Thanks Steve:)Thanks for the heads up, Lynn. I love all the new stores in WV, go there a lot instead of running to Hagerstown.
thanks, Lynn and Steve
Would you believe that when I came here in '71, there wasn't even a McDonald's? There was a Burger Chef, I think, but never cared for it at home, so never went to it here. When McD's came in '73, I was one happy camper!
Yeah, used to be in Charlestown, the only business there was the track.
good morning, we have two eagles in the nest now. I wonder if today is going to be the day?? She sure seems to be staying in that same spot.
I'm thinking maybe that was Lib there the whole time??
ok refresh my old memory, who has the V?
Eggs may be near. I think Belle was thawing a spot. Big Rig Steve has cam on now but sitting in a parking lot.
Belle has the v.
poor Big Rig.....probably has to now wait for a load to pick up
Yeah, Someone else probably took his other one.
It is so hard to judge size on the cam....now that both are there, it does seem like it could have been Lib all along, and now Belle, too. Hmmmm...
Belle has the vee, Lib is lighter in coloring.
Oh, no....just lost cam....MTBD.
I guess we now know that it was Belle in the nest.
Back up still, HP in nest! But it's not counting down, and pop-up isn't working. ARGH!
WOW- check out that wingspan...
Okay, everything fine now!!!
Mine is freezing a lot. I did get the HP on the still cam though. I'll put it on Nest pictures. I think that is Lib in the nest now. He has a skinnier neck, I think. What do you think?
Good Icy Morning to all of you -Just signing in and love it when both are there for me to see
lol...think I see poof
I don't know, Deb...maybe it would be easier for me to tell if I had Live feed instead of still cam--then I could zoom and maybe it wouldn't look quite so distorted. But just can't run the live cam for more than a minute or so a day.
Hey, Jo, you were just in time!
really Lynn, did not know you were not seeing the live feed?
Why can't you run the live feed that long, Lynn? cause of your internet provider rules? if so, that is a rip...Hello Jo:)Hubby just called and said it is a mess in town, and not sure how easy it will be to get back home- I did not say told you so-yes, I wanted to..he hasn't worked in so long, just wanted to make some money, so I get it, but..just not worth getting hurt to make $$$-So, if you don't have to leave the house in a vehicle, don't....my lecture for the day
point well taken, Megan....my jubby must be getting common sense in his old age, normally he would have taken my car and gone to work, so he is working from home today
Yes, it is Belle who has the V and she also has a longer tail with more white showing. It is still hard to tell if they aren't together.
EAGLE BACK IN NEST
Cool, right back to that same spot-need to take a shovel up there and clean out the nest for them.Hubby I think was afraid builder might complain if no one showed up and they would give job to someone else to get it done, so I understand that, there is so little work..but I would rather have him than cash...even though he is extremely stubborn...
Megan, he will start to mellow with age, just like a piece of meat or a fine wine:)
Megan, when you have time, send me an email and tell me what all your husband does or is it just floors. Had I known, My Mother had a new kitchen floor and foyer put in last fall. Would have been a good job for him. Mom needs a new commode installed, porch sanded and stained, house trim and garage door painted, etc. etc. Gene just can't get to it all. We need a lot done here, too. Three new patio door installed, porch repairs, new windows in front of house. OH, my wallet just snapped shut!:)
GeeGee also needs a new PORCH LIGHT;);)
They are back!
Reckon we are gonna get an egg today? I hope not till the weather breaks some. Wish ya'll had our weather today, it is so pretty here.
It looks like Lib has his foot on some food.
Missed it, my cam was frozen, I have to keep opening a new page-and the sound doesn't want to stay on- I hear crows...
Wanda did GeeGee wear out the light telling Gene to go home. LOLMy bil did not go to work. Amazing. Mine is an that is unusual.Lib and Belle look great. Wait awhile Lib. Tomorrow may be a better day for laying eggs.
Sorry. It would not post and then twice.
That was weird, guess my feed was frozen, then came back and it was like poof-poof they just disapeared from the nest-
The live feed is so far behind the eagles are gone on the 30 sec cam before they were on my live feed! I wonder if there is ice on some of the connections or something like that.
Both gone now.
Strang, the Still cam showed them gone before the live cam...what's up with that?? Maybe I need another cup of coffee;)
Yes, I guess the cold and ice is wreaking havoc with the live feed. Either that or we all need more coffee...
Oh, thank goodness someone else saw what I did. Thought I may be hallucinating:)Ceil, you are right, GeeGee wore the light out! Tee Hee
Got to finish washing clothes. BBL
Yes, Megan...if I download too much, or view too much live action, then they penalize me for 24 hrs. by slowing down my access to slower than dial-up. It's called the Fair Access Policy and is supposed to stop airwave hogging. The only unlimited time is 3am-6am. Tried to watch an ER episode that I had missed during the evening once and only got half-way through it before I got "nabbed". So had to get up in the middle of the night a few days later to watch it.
***GOOD MOrNING******EVERYBODY***fUNNY thing: we apparently went back to the top of Beakspeak's list for yesterday again, probably because of all our extra hits, trying to connect last evening when nobody could get through.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Phone calls took me away for awhile..Hubby went down around 10:30 for his ritual of Dunkin Donut Coffee.. Said that road were only wet and that he had no problem. DIL made it to work cross town in Frederick (They didn't need to come in until 10) & gs made it up to Hgstwn but also didn't leave until 10.SO all present & accounted for....I like all my eggs in one basket.....
Hey Sissy and Jim:) Our nest is always number one to me:)Hedgie-who is your provider?? I forget-
WOW! Weather report on the BWE says itis 48° - Eagle seems to be tenting like it could be raining.
Good morning everyone. Been lurking and watching!
Aha! It felt like someone was watching......Hello Sharon:)
It's Hughesnet, Megan. Satellite....only thing I could get here.
Hedgie, I think I would be looking for a new provider unless thats the only one you can access.
Check with the phone company. DSL would be better than what you have.
I felt your eagle eye!I heard dogs barking - or was I dreaming.NBG - really windy down there at times
Cost almost $800 to get set up...that was 18 months ago. Last summer a new provider popped up out of Kentucky called SkywayUSA that was only $200 that I got for my daughter who lives in Shanghai (literally and figuratively!!!) which is on the west side of the mountain from Gerrardstown/Inwood.
Mits. Big Rig Steve is rolling again. Heading for Iowa then Penn.
That's it, Red....no Verizon available--and they say not in the near future. No cable TV here. Couldn't get signal for Wildblue without taking down the entire forest. And after investing that much, no point in switching now to Skyway..but I think all of the satellite ones have the same policy.
thanks, Red...heading over there now
I feel your pain, Hedgie- after having dial up for years...Options are limited when you live in the boonies...Verizon DSL is not available here either, event hoguh I know some who have it about 15 minutes away. Skyway has the same policy- I was looking- most people I know in WV have frontiernet, but that's all around SHeptown.
Gee, wish you all could send some of those warmer temps this way...still only 31° here.
WHoo Hoo! Rolling Rolling RollingAre we headed to Philly?I love this cam - gets me out of thehouse.........Thanks Mits & Red for the link...
I bet he is glad to be back "on the road again"
Sharon and Sissy have frontiernet..
Yeah, Megan, frontier is through their phone company..they don't have Verizon in Jefferson Co. A friend of mine lives in a development within Mtbg. city limits...she couldn't get Verizon because her house was 1700' away from the box...but her neighbor behind her was within 1500' and can get it. Sounds like they need to add more boxes!!
you can do a full screen with BRS, but it takes away some of the clarity.
You could really send the warm temps this way, it is 8 right now, but headed up to the 20's.
ah, cable, it is a love-hate relationship:(
Yeah, guy I know has it thru Verizon cause the box is right by his house. Big Rig Steve is really movin...
She ended up going with Comcast, her cable company.Don't know how many counties in WV has Frontier. Gotta say, my daughter & SIL in Ranson aren't overly pleased with it. But they do have WiFi!
Deb, did you see BRS, is back on the road
I love my cable internet service, they are very helpful too, when I have problems, 24/7 help line for internet.
I am off to meet Mary, we are going to develop some owl pictures. BBL
Yes, I saw that BRS is up and running. I'll check in on him when I get home. Thanks!
we have had a weird problem here, since last night our NBC channel either goes blank or the sound goes off, but pic stays...???
any thoughts on that RED???
Good morning! 21 here this morning and the roads are iced over. Laurel had 16. We lost our spring weather! Schools are closed and the paper said hundreds of wrecks yesterday. Supposed to warm up. We are scheduled to go to Dallas tonight, will have to wait and see if the roads clear.I need the url for big rig steve! What does and eagle do if it is time to lay an egg and the nest is deep in snow? Sure hope it is not time!
BIG RIG STEVE
EAgle Back in nest!!
I guess eagle is lika a human in that respect, when it is time, then it is the time, Lolly
I think it is Belle. It is hard to tell with the snow in the nest.
we are at 32° now, winds are supposed to shift to the south later, high in upper 30's
Do you have cable MITs or TV antenna?
Verizon Fios, Red...all the other gazillion stations are fine
and I was thinking it was a puffed up,Lib????...only way I know for sure is when the HP is going on;)
Strange...that Newseum front page site either changes cities daily, or St. Louis didn't publish a paper today!! Wanted to see what it said about mom's weather!
We have cable and on occasion when cable is out, we switch to antenna. Won't be able to do that after the switch over. Not due to take place til June 12, now.
I think Belle would have spent the night in the nest if it were time for her to lay. They hover over the egg cup and keep it dry (or at least that is how I remember it) when it is time.
Whoa- what did they just bring in- a bird...??
Or is it leaves and twigs..
Thanks Helen! Yes, you are probably right about the egg, but it sure won't be good for it in a bed of snow and ice!
Wanda, if you get the converter box then you can switch!! I do the same thing...and love the converter reception...channels are clearer than on Directv. And there's more channels, too. One problem I have is that I can't get Baltimore stations..but that's because the stupid squirrels chewed through the rotor cable on the antenna tower, and Bill has not had a chance to splice in a new wire!
Yep Sharon! That sounds just like it is.Our sign was alway when she stayed in the nest overnight. Then we all stayed up or at least checked in on the nest throughout the night on our visits to the loo........ lol
My cam keeps freezing up, but everytime it comes back it comes back with sound.
Mits, our cable provider was messing up one of our local channels as they prepared for digital. So I would suspect Verizon has a problem.
I have sound (wind) but the cam is surefreezing up after it on for long
I see you just said that Lolly lol
BWE must not have gotten that memo...she did not spend the night in nest before the egg came:)
Megan - it must have been more fluff for the egg cup because they aren't eating anything.
Lots and lots of HP!!
It was a pile of leaves and twigs,..that was slo mo HP with the cam freezing...
that makes sense, Red
Get a look at those talons on Belle
They brought in a lot of leaves to put on top of the snow. They must be concerned. LOL
sure brought in a ton of leaves...is that the same as hot water and towels??
Some new leaves in nest...did someone bring them in or did they blow in?
It's like blankets, I guess, anyway, grass is all covered with snow, so I guess it's easier to get leaves and twigs...gettibng that nest cup ready.
Decaying leaves generate heat...they're maybe using them as de-icer!!!
I think it is time for Wanda to head to the nest with hot water bottle or hair dryer.
is that new date a done deal, Wanda?
Gonna walk down to the mailbox, so I can see what the main road looks like, or maybe skate- before my butt takes the shape of this chair..bbl
Maybe thay are getting the nest ready for an over-nighter tonight:) A pajama parteee!
well this butt has been up and down to laundry room...dinner has been in crockpot....Tomato Beef Stoganoff with noodles and a green salad tonight....
Hate to leave while eagle in the nest, but gotta get busy. This "toosh" has sat here long enough. And yes, that is code for b____!
I think the House passed the new date, but the Senate still has to do so. Obama really pushed it through. Don't understand why 18 months wasn't enough time for the "public" to get ready. I've been ready for several months!Give me a break...now Obama is complaining because his girls didn't have school today..."they never close schools in Chicago" he says. Well, then go back to Chicago!
Before I make another trip out the driveway, think I'll go upstairs and out on the balcony and see if I can see tire tracks..if no tracks, no papers!!!
I just read that, Lynn,,, this was not a snow event this was ice, here in Montgomery count and in the District there are many hills and small streets, even the Secret Service are not experts on ice, and we DO NOT have the equipment and stuff that goes with it because we don't have that many storms, but ice is the pits....and if he thinks this is bad, wait till DC really gets snow-in, and they do not clean the streets or pick up trash for days....
no paper here either, Lynn...
jubby is in the dining room, on his laptop, on the regular phone and his cell phone, guess he is multi-tasking:)
Nope, no tire tracks. BUT...saw a little blue car go by and a guy threw somethng out window right in front of my driveway.....more nails maybe???? I almost hope so so that I can give a description to the police!!! I'll wait about an hour to see if mail comes, and then walk out again and check things out.
I think BRS is about to take truck through a wash.
Right on, Mits! Maybe he'll issue an executive order to stop snow and ice! Teehee.Your stroganoff sounds delicious, BTW! Yes, that definitely is multitasking with a capital M!!!
Hmmm it does look like happenings at the nest over the day. Best be keeping close watch.Dex got a good report this morning. He will stay on the risky but effective drops and all the other meds :) for 10 days. We don't go back til the 9th unless there is a change in the wrong direction. I feel so releived and Dex is acting so much more like today is a good one :).
great news, Glo
Late lunch hereBBL
cute pic of him on their site....Tuesday, January 27Today, Xi Lan decided to live out his dream and get back on the road again - despite not ever having been on the road nor having a clear idea of what a road is. And he just had a tire, not a whole car.
Yup, Steve is going into a truck wash.
wonder if we will see the sudsy water going by?
Sure didn't take long.
yeah, no sudsy water on windows:(
Great news, Glo. Hope Dex continues to improve!!
House Vote "No" On DTV BillShutdown Would Have Been Delayed Until June 12 from the Feb 17. The Senate unanimously approved the idea Monday night.
I refreshed my Live Feed and got a totally different view - our eagle wasover at the egg well NOT up in front of the cam...... oh well
Darn, I missed the truck wash...
My comment on the DTV bill is Senate Yea House Na
Going for my beauty nap now. I need it badly. lol
poof mt nest now
I just refreshed cam and got a poof
Yep, MT nest.
Weather at BWE says 56°
I see that:)
Good news, Jo. Thanks for update!!Nest is sure beautiful today...the colors are so good, not to mention frequent presence(s) of mom and/or dad!
LL Bean Spring 2009 catalog was in my mailbox...cruel joke...
Jo, I don't know why they use Salisbury weather forcast on that site...when it is in Cambridge,,their temp is 34 downtown Cambridge...so must be cooler by Blackwater
Probably best just to toss it, Megan! Then you can't be tempted! I hardly ever look at them anymore just for that reason!
Already did, Not ready to look at Spring clothing.Radar shows some precip headed our way again.
Our pair have been on more than off the nest today. I hope common sense prevails and that they put off egg-laying for a while. But then again, is there ever a really good time in January and February?Going to visit GeeGee...save me a photo if anything intresting happens in the next few hours.Bye now:)
I see OUR EAGLE back in the nest
I see that all of you saw OUR EAGLEin the nest before I did..... lolI am lost in the enjoyment of myOatmeal Creme Pie from Little Debbie
I was just on the phone withGermany gal. They are all doing well.
Uh, pass the Oatmeal Creme Pie, please.
Does anyone know who Jennifer Fuller is on the yahoo email? New one on me...of course, lasat week we had someone named Donnie that some of you knew on here...but she didn't stick around long.Anne Marie has been on mail, but not blog, and Paulleo has disappeared!!And I think we need a silver alert on Norma!!!
Donnie is a dude- he lives near the Potomac,on the MD side, comes around to chat once in a while. He enjoys watching the eagles.
Jennifer is a new Momster member.I am hoping she joins in with us on the blog. Donnie is from Williamsport - near the Potomac. Remember to check the Membership on the Momsters site.. There usually isn't much info on members profile - but their email address should be there. (I know it isn't always up to date)
LISTEN UP NOW! Just called our#1 Sunshine Girl HO! you know who I mean?Called NORMA - she is great but stuck upon her hill and her computer is in the shop but like I said she is stuck & can't go pick it up. The guy did come and clean her drive today. So she ismaking some GOOD SOUP and reading her Book!Having serious Blog withdrawal &Misses all of us
Thank you for checking on Norma!!
HO, thanks for the update, Jo;)
Taking about an hour break..BBL
Thanks for calling Norma, Jo! HO! Figured it was computer provlem!! Hope she gets it back soon.And thanks for info on he-Donnie and Jennifer!Had to go out and de-ice the satellite dish again. See our eagle left while I was out of commission.
Check out the jigsaw puzzle I posted on momsters.Also, ZZ is up a new tree and doing some new moves ... occasionally.She's in the process of being weened and will soon get her own enclosure. And Bai Yun should be ready to be a mother again pretty soon.C(°ٿ°)DJim
I think it's going to rain in Shepherdstown later, which will help melt the snow.But in the meantime, those sycamore leaves are much darker than snow, absorb light rather than reflect, which creates heat, which also melts snow. Very clever move by our pair.C(°ٿ°)DJim
I'm glad Norma is OK, and will be back with us when she can pick her puter up and get it home.C(°ٿ°)DJim
I remember what I wanted to tell you!!There's an adult eagle in the nest and setting in the nest cup, even though the nest tree is blowing and swaying in a heavy wind.C(°ٿ°)DJim
OOPs! That's at the Norfolk site!! Wonder if my memory crashed in my sleep last night!C(°ٿ°)DJim
little hummer being fed
Knew what you meant Jim. Someone said it was windy there.
Here we go again...blogger cop re-posting message that I already had posted a little while ago! DUH!
Thanks for nice puzzle, Jim!! Hadn't seen that one in awhile.I knew what you meant, too!!!
Papers came...no mail. No nails--just a gum wrapper! Going to read news. BBL!
Lynn our paper finally cam and it was in two plastic bags nice and dry.
NO PAPER HERE... but mail came on time:)
No mail but our mail never comes before 3:30
