So glad you enjoyed it, Steve and friends...
Thanks for the new thread!

Costume Lady said...

OMG, I have found another feather...only my second one!

Costume Lady said...

Those of you who were part of STEVE'S Edible Bouquet are so very THOUGHTFUL. I haven't been keeping up with the blog, but I have a feeling this idea was Judy E. What a sweet thing to do!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Hello Wanda. I am way behind too but I think Judy E was behind it.

I LOVE US!

Costume Lady said...

It is a beautiful day here in Nestville/Shepherstown, but a bit too warm to suit me...81°.
Hoping to get GG outside again today...she enjoyed it so much yesterday.
There is a pair of hawks tending to a nest at the bottom part of her yard and We enjoyed watching them coming and going...I think they are feeding hawklets:)

Costume Lady said...

In case you cant make out what my avatar is...it is Jayden fishing with a stick:)

Mema Jo said...

Thanks for the fresh thread and Congrats Wanda on another feather.

Momster Judy is responsible for Steve and his crew having a great day! Thanks again to all of you who make the cam available to us.

JudyE said...

Home for lunch and find a new thread

and happy to see it was delivered I was so worried about it being the guarded gate etc

almost can't see both of the chicks I assume under Belle

JudyE said...

WANDA SHAR I had it on the blog last week I got a coupon from them for being a valued repeat customer I was going to just trash the coupon and then it occurred to me that would be a great idea what I did and I sent to from all the momster and dadsters from the blog I also sent out a email yesterday to all I have on my addy book Just wanted him to know how we appreciate our BLOG MASTER and camera keepers and fixers

JudyE said...



we are 86° now

JudyE said...

I can hear flies buzzing around the cam

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JO I couldn't open the link, but I have been watching the pair at Wildwatch in Washington with at least two eggs...is this the one?

thanks

Mema Jo said...


It is at Sapsucker Woods Nest in Ithaca NY


I couldn't open the first link either.
Let's try this one

Mema Jo said...

That one works......... I've never watched it before........

Janet said...

good afternoon all,

MAGPIE: they have not designated a "name" to her POSSIBLE learning disability. they did not "say" that she has one, but the school psychologist said that the data was indicative of a person with a learning disability.....you know how they have to watch their wording....

i had her tested 3 years ago for ADD / ADHA with a private psychologist and that was negative....

basically, the problem is you can teach her a thing, and this not only applies to school stuff, but stuff at home...and she will have this thing...and a week or so later, its as if you never showed her how to do it. and it is very frustrating to have to teach/reteach. for example, she can do multiplication/division, but to use it in steps in problem solving...not there. and the charts are showing her getting further and further behind...

i was so flipping relieved when they said she "might have a problem" that i broke into tears ..... it has been such a long road to get to this point.....
thank you all for your support in this. i have kept it a journey quiet and close to my heart for a very very long time now....i have a teacher pal, three actually, who also feel she has a problem of some variety, but they are not in any position to help .... thankfully the school she is at is a charter school. that means that they can do things ordinary public schools cannot do to try to help kids, they can go beyond normal paradigms and try things to figure out problems and this has been a saving grace for olivia i feel.....and i guess for me as well. some one FINALLY listened to me and progress monitored, tested, worked with her and evaluated her and is interested in helping her.

i told them and i've said all along, she is the quiet, well behaved, introverted child who is not a behavior issue and will not speak up and therefore, will get left behind if i do not advocate for her.....and that's what i've been doing.

fifth grade wasn't too bad, but when i saw a 54 at the beginning of the school year in math, i knew i had to take action NOW and i did....so again, am hoping praying that they find the problem so we can start to address it....

its been a nice day here. tom and i did breakfast at the cracker barrel. i cleaned a little and went to my 1 p.m. massage appt.....they are taken care of for another 2 weeks.

now fixing to go pick up miss olivia and take her shopping. she wants a dress. ????? who can figure 11 year olds......but okay.

its was, 77 and cloudy. they say severe weather moving in over night tomorrow. bleeech.

hoping everyone is doing well.

will touch base later.

light, love, hugs and smiles to everyone!

Sandi said...

Good afternoon my eagle friends! 74 degrees here in Bethany - just about perfect!

Found out today that our school board has decided NOT to have the kids make up the day they missed for snow, but all teachers must make up the day and must also make up one of the days we missed for the hurricane. This is the 3rd year in a row that they have done this. I would understand completely if they said the kids AND the teachers have to make up a day of lost instruction and added it on at the end of the year. But it is SO insulting to me that they excuse the lost instruction for the kids but insist that we come to school 4 days (was supposed to be 2 but now 4) after the kids are finished for the year. It's like we're being treated as hourly employees - the board shows absolutely NO consideration for the hours that teachers spend above and beyond the school days, in the evenings and on weekend. Instead, they insist that we must put in our allotted number of hours in the building!

Fortunately for me, I have not used any of my 3 personal business days - I hold onto them precisely for this reason. So the kids will finish on June 13th, I'll go to school on the 14th, and then I will use my personal days on the 17th, 18th, and 19th!

The first year I did it (3 years ago), my former principal said I couldn't take my personal days on the inservice days for teachers. I told him that, if I couldn't take them then, I would take them the last 3 days that the kids were in school and wished him luck finding a substitute willing to come in for those 3 days. =) He changed his mind pretty quickly! Last year, when I told my current principal what I wanted to do, his reply was, "They're your personal days; you can take them whenever you want!"

Shirley, how are you feeling today??

Judy, the note from Steve must make you feel great!! What a nice thing you did!!

Judie said...

Hi everyone,

Have only read the current comments and it seems JudyE has done a very good deed on behalf of the momsters and dadsters. Thank you, JudyE.

Need to comment on Janet's post. I have had similar problems all my life and the diagnosis, in short, is that my brain simply does not process/retain certain types of information. My issues relate to numbers and directional information. A good tester will be able to identify areas that need additional evaluation. Be sure to ask that a full battery of tests be given for verbal, math, geometric forms, ability to reproduce geometrical lines or specific sequences of letters. It may be necessary to have some tests repeated after a few days/week to see which information is retained and which is not.

I'll be back a little later. Long day and need to get into the scullery.

Oh, went to Outdoor Channel to look in on the nest and the link has disappeared. Not happy about that.

Lori said...

Good afternoon everyone!

Thank you, STEVE, for the new thread & for all you and your crew do to keep the cam fixed and running.

WANDA, thanks for the call over & congrats on your second feather!

JUDYE, thanks for sending the edible bouquet to Steve and crew. It wa a very kind thing to do. Gracias!

JudyE said...

Hello home from work and I see all the family in the nest and talking going on too

JudyE said...

Is Belle telling him to go get food?? soft little eagle talk Yep Poof Shep

JudyE said...

I saw him go to the cut off trunk

JudyE said...

BELLE found nestovers she is feeding on of the chicks the other is at 11 and they are at 5/6 I bet you the other will make his way over soon

JudyE said...

good think I didn't bet any money on the last comment the other chicks is still on the other side of the nest Not hungry I guess

JudyE said...

I see another FEATHER at 6 to the left on edge of nest see it??

BELLE just put flugg on the back of one of ther chicks and he moved then Like MOM come on now

Lolly said...

I mowed, edged, and used the leaf blower today, Wonderful day to be outside and storms are coming tonight. Wanted to get the yard cared for before the "severe weather."

Judy, that was a generous, thoughtful gift to NCTC.

Jack is headed to Dallas tonight for the hockey game with Michael.

JudyE said...

Great news that Cuba is willing to send the family packing back to the US now they are just waiting on details

JudyE said...

BELLE is feeding the chicks

JudyE said...

That is odd there was food in the nest and Belle didn't see it one of the chicks was on it and some how it must of been unearthed Odd I was recording too I went and rewound it trying to figure out when Shep brought food in It had to been there and the chick was on it ODD anyone else see that????

JudyE said...

The video that I recorded is a little over 7 min when I stopped it wanting to see if I missed a food drop But I have edited it just 2:30min long just right to where the chick was laying and gets up and Belle finds a fish under the chicks

JudyE said...

POOF BELLE

magpie said...

I didn't JudyE....my computer got all frozen up and I had to restart.

magpie said...

Thanks for the Heron link, Jo...I might have to wait a little while to check that out

Janet.... thanks for all the information, sounds like things will come along....sending
positive thoughts along for all that.
I am going to read up on my
grandnephew's situation, it might be similar. He is 12.
Hope Livvie got a beauteous dress!
and glad that you and Tom had a little breakfast date ☺♥☺♥

JudyE said...

I got it recorded and uploading to youtube right now when it is done i will put link on blog odd I wonder when it was brought in I have been watching since I got home and recording and didn't see it Back to the news and LM waiting for the upload to upload

magpie said...

The kestrel has been all hunched down a lot in the nest box today...I am hoping to see EGGS there soon

Sandi...sorry about that school schedule...good plan for your
days off, though!
Way to stand your ground!

magpie said...

JudyE there was big yellow fish near the bottom of the nest most of the day...think it was just too hot for eating today. Belle did a really spectacular job shielding those babies, spreading her wings and making shade, and she often
looked like a Royal Statue

JudyE said...

both in nest

paula eagleholic said...

Shep just arrived with a small something...Belle was right on his tail and arrived 2 seconds later. She grabbed it and has it at the 6 spot...kids on the right next to her. Shep is at 10.

magpie said...

see that, heard it first...was there food brought in? I was on another screen

JudyE said...

I think food was brought in and she snatched it up and Shep is now on the edge at 10 looking like he is gonna YEP POOF and yep food

JudyE said...

He is such a good provider

paula eagleholic said...

Shep just took off. It's a floppy little piece of meat, maybe a small rodent.

magpie said...

Ok, good, thanks Paula

Lolly said...

I forgot to tell you that while we were gone Laurel sent me a picture. Herons have built a nest in her neighbors tree and they are ofen in her trees.

Lolly said...

What ever he brought in, it was still moving or just floppy.

Lolly said...

Going to go fix myself something to eat and then veg out watching TV tonight. Have some programs to catch up on.

JudyE said...

Here is the video of

WHERE THIS FISH COME FROM LOL WAS IT UNDER THE CHICK AND SHE DIDN'T KNOW IT WHAT DO YOU THINK??

JudyE said...

I went through the sequence of 20 pictures I have taken today and I don't see the fish maybe flugg got on top of it

JudyE said...

magpie said...

Shamrock is quite the contortionist!

JudyE said...

magpie said...

Large partially devoured fish delivered, and mantled...

JudyE said...

Hoda said...

Yes LORI bundled up here with socks and jackets again. The wind off of the glaciers is cold.
Night temperatures in the thirties and daytime temperatures in the low fifties if they make it that high! We are in for a gray wet weekend.

Glad all sounds good.

JANET I am glad that the tests are being done.

Glad STEVE and the crew got the basket JUDYE. Thank you.


Hoda said...

JUDIE did I understand you to say you lost the link to the Outdoor channel?
Here it is Link to outdoor channel JUDIE if you need it.

Hoda said...

LOLLY posted several very pretty pictures of flowers on her FB page. Thanks LOLLY. How is ANNIE.
Who is playing Hockey in Dallas? A Canadian Team perhaps?

magpie said...

Hi there Hoda...
as Paula said earlier in a post maybe it was last night....
Winter to Summer here....
sounds like the reverse for You!

magpie said...

Enjoyed that post from Lolly about the Herons in Laurel's neighborhood trees!

and also very much enjoyed
Chef Wanda's report on outside activities with GG

ISS flyover looks pretty promising for these parts....WSW at -3.8 and elevation 67 degrees...starting around 8:36 tonight in my area

JudyE said...


someone on facebook also said they couldn't get the cam so I posted the link and said sometime puter don't recognize links good luck Odd huh

JudyE said...

tonight is Terrific Tuesday
but I wanted to share something I just saw on NCIS

do you know why the wedding ring is on the finger it is on????

JudyE said...

BELLE is eating ok DVR RR be back

Hoda said...

JUDYE erroneously it was thought it was from vein to heart...wedding ring finger...is that what you were asking about?

JudyE said...

there is a vein only in that finger that runs to the heart BINGO you gotta it Your win WAX

Hoda said...

Well The Teacher Retirement board sent me my letter asking that I confirm that I am alive!!! It always makes me laugh and they have a need to get such confirmation once a year...so I confirmed indeed I am alive and did not joke about giving me time to check out first!!! I do not think they have much of a humour.
I wonder if the two other boards will send the same request for confirmation that I am still alive!!! I do not know what they do...LOL

JudyE said...

a man had his wedding ring finger cut off and that was on the show I though interesting commercial is one

Janet said...

good evening to all:

JUDIE: thanks for the input. i am hopeful that what ever they call it, the main thing is to figure out how to help her to be successful in school and in life.

and yes Olivia ended up with a cute dress to go with her western boots and a pair of leggings.... can't go wrong with marshall's pricing!

JUDYE: like HODA, i think it has something to do with a vein running directly to the heart.....but i don't know.

sooo??????????????????????????

Hoda said...

All fingers have such a vein JUDYE. They did not know that when they named it in ancient times.

magpie said...


ISS flyover was great...first sailed between Orion and Jupiter, then between the Big and Little Dippers...almost a nine-minute flyover

Livvie's outfit sounds very fun, Janet...

Good Night, Eagle Pals

Prayers for Wellness All Around

God Bless This Nest, and
God Bless Us, Every One xox ♥

Judie said...

Back again.

Looks like Belle basking in the moonlight with two large moving objects nearby. Bet she wishes they would just go to sleep.

Thank you Hoda. I could get the Outdoor Channel but would have to scroll down and click on the Eagle Cam selection. Tonight, the Eagle Cam selection was missing from the list of options. So, thank you much. I'm so pleased you can report to the pension office that you are, indeed, still with us.

Didn't see if Shirley checked in so hope she's feeling okay tonight.

Hope Miss GG is still happy and comfortable with her new teeth.

Janet, the best outcome of having myself tested is that I was finally able to stop blaming myself for being "stupid." It truly was a great gift and helps so much with self-esteem. If Olivia has a learning disability she will be just fine as long as she understands its okay and she's still a super wonderful person.

Need to pretend I'm Jo and put my feets up. Really tired tonight.

Sandperson will be on the way at 11pm. Restful sleep for all.

Mema Jo said...

Tuesday TV - BBL

Lynne2 said...

oh Janet, God bless you. I'm so glad Livvy has you and great parents to advocate for her. If only I had had the same, how different my life might have been. I know I have a problem, always have. I think some sort of dyslexia. Not sure. Doesn't really matter now. My mother was otherwise occupied, and, according to her, I just wasn't applying myself.

Hope Dana's Boomer is doing OK.

Andy, hang in there with your neck/shoulder/aches/pains.

Glad GG got some outdoor time!

Lori, how does your garden grow? Glad the weather has been so nice for your trip home!

Glad Lolly and Jubby are home after a very nice visit!

Lynne2 said...

Been peekin' in on the Royal Family as I can from work.

Watching a show on the Great Smoky Mountains...going to say Goodnight and prayers for all!

JudyE said...

Both wing stretch for Belle

NatureNut said...

Gadzooks, it's late again!
It's so warm, I may end up downstairs! Been doing laundry down there and one knee didn't want to climb the stairs, so I may stay down there as soon as dryer's done!
Have been working on Sat. pictures and got more goodies today!!!!May not get them on blog until TH, but hope to be sooner ☺

Janet, I read about learning problems of your daughter and am so glad she's at a school that can help. Kudos to you!
Haven't read everything yet, so forgive if I don't talk about something important.
Good Health Prayers for ALL and
Pleasant Feather Dreams ;>)

stronghunter said...

What a thoughtful thing to do, Judy. I am sure the crew at NCTC was surprised and pleased.

I have been busy today. Bowling and baseball on the agenda.

Sleep well, my friends.

stronghunter said...

Just hoping the guy with the motorcycle has finished running up and down the street for tonight. Geesh.

Hoda said...

Goodnight.

PRAYERS♥

It is freezing cold here!!! UGH!!!

Mema Jo said...

I am finished watching my shows - I don't usually last 3 hrs in the evening in front of TV - only on a Tues does this ever happen.

Janet - So thankful you stepped up to get Olivia help Now hopefully they will be able to help her with solutions
to correct this.

Mema Jo said...

Time for me to close for the day.
God bless and keep you and your loved ones throughout the night. May you have SED and have AOYP.

I love us ♥

paula eagleholic said...

Lolly was that the neughbor with cancer that passed? The one where her husband went oon a trip when she was in bad shape?

paula eagleholic said...

Omg I can view the live feed on my phone! Whoo hoo!

I also have the ability to use my phone as an internet connection ... going to bring the laptop to the beach soon and try it out

Costume Lady said...

Saying good night a little early (for me)...work to do at church tomorrow. The men are finally putting up shelves and rods to hang clothes on in the Clothes Closet. I and some SK helpers will have to move everything out of the room so the men can move around and do their work. I'm so excited...they told me about 6 months ago that they were going to do this...I lost faith in them. Oh Ye of little faith! You'd think I'd learn by now:)

Sending love and prayers to all ~♥~

Lolly said...

Yes, Paula, that is the neighbor that died. Visitation tomorrow night and funeral Thursday. I know there is family coming, but other than that there will only be a few neighbors. They moved here and then she got sick. He has the house for sale and will move back to Florida.

Lynne, do not know what you think your problem is, but Hon, you have a lot on the ball!!! Your creativity and intelligence is very evident!!!

Tonight I vegged in front of the TV. Watched program after program and gave myself a manicure.

Jack had a great evening...the STARS won so that made it even better and lots of fun. Michael went back to work after the game. Not sure who they played and can not ask Jack....he is asleep in his chair. :)

Heading to the hot shower and bed.

Night all! SED!!!

Sandi said...

Good Wednesday morning my eagle friends! 64 degrees here right now - could hit 90 today! Boy, we went from winter to summer in a week - pretty much skipped spring!!

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle Pals...

Hi Sandi!

Yepper, hot hot hot, heck of a time for A/C in the vehicle to quit, hoping it just needs a
Freon Boost !

If we get rain...it might be because a cooler front is pushing through and then maybe we return
to Spring for a few days

Yay Yay Yay, Wanda...on the Clothes Closet renovations!

And Cyclone Shirley seems to have bounced right back into the busy routines....


Best Wishes to EVERY ONE for a great day

xoxo ♥ ☺

magpie said...

Belle is awake, seems like she had a few quiet moments tending to herself,

Shep in the nest with a big fish...he's was panting upon arrival. Belle in right after him, mantling the meal. Chicks are plotzed at 5 and 10....and there goes Shep, the provider :)

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like he had a few bites before he arrived with it, as well he should. Shamrock has turned and is looking at the food. Here he comes...Hedgie is chowing down at the 5 spot.

paula eagleholic said...

Shamrock scratching his head...too cute. Shamrock is ready for some food too. Great view of Belle tearing into the fish.

NEW WEDNESDAY MORNING THREAD ☺ XO !

New Thread. December 9, 2017

Well, Judy Eddy, Eagle Eyed Sharon, and I, Hoda, have asked to be designated as Administrators for this blog. So an update from Steven Chas...
