Good morning to all on this Terrific TuesCongrats on the feather Margy - happy to see you here.Steve, thank you for the fresh newthread - I thought you were up in the mountains for the week? Enjoy.Need to go to earlier thread... BBL
Kay - prayers for that fire to burn itself out before reaching their homeFire is so scarey and causes so much devastation.
At 11:05 both cams have the same pic - Prez at 5:00 with foot sprawled outward. Now he has moved to the 3:00 positionI think we are up/running and in synchronization
Shirley this is really your eventful week - comes all at one time. Hope the bowling award fits on your mantelDo you have a GPS in your car for the long trip? No reading Patterson when you're driving lol One thing for sure - Hunter is going to really really appreciate you more when you come home then ever before!Kathryn also.
Sandi it is wonderful that the settlement went so smoothly. Now back to your real world. You and Lisahave come through this with flying colors and lots of bonding.I suppose that Denny is getting very busy - Is Kevin helping Denny this summer?
Oh My Goodness - look at our cam...Both Prez and Capt have their blackfeathers and now size when they aretogether is the only way we will tell them apart.
Good morning all.Thank youSTEVE/MARGYSunny here and no rain.LovelyPrayers for your Cousin's safety KAY.All is well and good here.Due to do lots of yoga today with two of my favourite teachers. Maybe too a bicycle ride.Stay well MARGY. Keeping your living situation in prayers too.
Do you all know that "Whallah" is "by Allah"It is Hindi and Arabic. I believe there is but ONE God with whateve name. So it is OK by me. Just wondering because often street talk becomes part of main stream culture.
Good morning! LOL Have no idea to how to spell it, Margy, but you got the idea.Kay, know that houses did burn and prayers that your cousins was not one of them. We are so dry, so hot, and very windy. Scary!Need to go check out the cam. Out of the habit since the computer was down.
Two eaglets in view at 3 and 4. Wow are they ever growing.Paula, glad Larry is no worse today and hoping he is a wee bit better!!
Well, my cam lasted 1:44. Hoping it comes back!
Need to eat some breakfast and then get to the patio. It's a big job. Have to move all furniture, then hose off, scrub, dry, and then apply sealer to the tile. Also do the same to our small front door area. Also, clean off all furniture before moving it back. Anyone want to come help? ☺
Lolly my cam has been up 23 min
They both keep looking upwardI had thought I had heard a clunk or two up in the atticLunch time will be soon I hope andso do Prez and Capt
5/6/2014 is National Teacher Appreciation day Here are a few beautiful thoughts."Teachers teach because they care. Teaching young people is what they do best. It requires long hours, patience, and care." -- Horace Mann"A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others." -- Mustafa Kemal Atatürk"Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth." - Helen Caldicott
Sandi, Dana, Shirley, Lolly, CandyKudos to youIf I missed a Teacher - This does include you too ♥
Lunch is being served in our nest.
Following a few midweek showers, it will warm into the 80s with increasing humidity to round out the work week.Check out the AC I guess...
Adult fly in at noon position with new crib rail (stick)
Good afternoon.Thank you Steve for the new Mother's Day weekend thread and Margy for hollerin' at us.Prayers for Joyce and her family. Hope the fire moves away from them.Hi Margy. Beauteous day in NOVA also. Enjoy your new feather.Hi Jo. Thank you for multiple chuckles delivered via email. Now back to the laundry room. BBL
WOW a new thread and we assumed we wouldn't get one THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVEON LUNCH AT MC DAND I see the still cam is back to the correct time YEAH
I see both eagle at launch pad now
is that a adult above them looks like it
I really don't like it when I open the cam and see an MT nest! Those2 eaglets are getting too large tohide in the NHZ... Just saying
I think I'll splurge and go have mydinner at Burger King! I need a Whooper! BBl
Off to baseball practice, then back home to finish getting ready. James Patterson on audio is just fine for travel. I did it when I was commuting to Culpeper.
Home from workI got a email from SHIRLEY no subject is this spam?????not opening it unless you say so
got this in my email on BuddyBuddy playing with his enrichment toys
and I also concur that I don't like it when we look at the nest and it is MRwe need to put up a fence on that side of the yard No Trespassing LOL
MT not MR lol
moving flugg kids still in the backyard
Belle is still standing at the launch pad like a statue
Kids have to be asleep
Silly question to all dog owners past present and future One the news funny as ever is a dog named Hanna that love Heads of Raw Cabbage If you try to take it she growls for it the video is hilarious
OH question is have you heard of dogs liking raw cabbage Green Beans and carrots yes but cabbage???
back to the news they are talking about the trail so gruesome
Belle is moving somewhat but still same spot and Capt is at 9
there is a fish at her feet I thought she was gonna feed them or herself but so far not
commercial over back to news
Not dogs wanting cabbage. That might require someone sleeping in a spare room (or outside). lolDid have a Siamese (Koko) who loved plain cooked spaghetti. Dinner over. Kitchen restored to order. Laundry caught up. See an adult and an eaglet is near 11.Happy Whoppering Jo.Shirley, you will likely be on the road before I get to the blog tomorrow so: safe and happy travel and just have an amazing time at the reunion.BBL
DELTA has it second hatch and there is a awesome pic on FB
Belle is now eating and still in the same area and I see eaglet with leg stretched out at 9
Headin out to the tower BBIALW
Hi all - very busy day, very busy evening. Need to head out to the grocery store. Shirley, I am so sorry that you had to deal with such a rude woman on your bowling team and today at the banquet. Some people!!!Jo, thanks for the teacher quotes.Kay, what's the latest on the fire headed your cousin's way? And how is Penny doing with the seizures? My principal made the English teacher and I sit down together in a room with him today to try to hash out our differences. Short version ... it didn't work.I'll catch you all in the early morning.
Sorry SANDI things did not work with English teacher.SHIRLEY, I actually got upset with the rude woman story.She must be one very unhappy person.The facts are you are a GREAT AWESOME TERRIFIC addition to any group you choose to join. You are a fantastic human being and friend. Her loss that she does not see that.Do not take on other people's ugliness, for emotionally, mentally and spiritually she has issues. Blessings to you.An honour to be your friend.
back from two cell phone tower eagle nest visits and no one was home I could of stayed till after sunset but came home instead I see adult is on the rail I see feetsies so not much movement I love that she spends times with the kids watching over them
from facebook Update on Duke Farms. Posted on their cam page "Update 4/28/2014Banding for the eaglets is set for 5/12 or 5/14. The banding will be broadcast using the webcam but no audio will be available as of yet."darn it I will be working
Belle is eating nestovers and I am off to TV stuff I have DVRD
now feeding Capt
Judy, I have not sent you an e-mail. I am so sorry you are being bothered by this. Thank you for the kind words Hoda and Sandi. I actually went back and deleted that post because I am embarrassed about what happened. Trying to tell myself that there's no reason for me to feel embarrassed. The woman was clearly out of bounds. Don't think she is unhappy, though. She seems very pleased with herself. Just hasn't been my day. I tried to get to the parts store to pick up a part that had been ordered for me, but they closed before I got there. I was before closing time, but it made no difference. I even heard someone yelling at me from inside the store that they were closed. I wanted one of those little round mirrors to help you see your blind spot when driving. Guess I can get it tomorrow morning. I had told the man who ordered it that I'd be there. I did try. If you did not read the comments I posted before I deleted them, here is what happened:One of the members of my bowling team has complained that I have been hurting the team because I do not bowl as well as the others. Once she commented that "We want to win," clearly implying that I was somehow preventing that. (We were winning.) She accused me of not trying and of not doing the things she said I should do. (Lots of people tell me things I should do. I get to choose what works for me.)The truth is that I have been improving every week and my score is often higher than hers. I was the third most improved bowler in the league--she was first. I think we were both helping the team.And today at the banquet, I was trying to make pleasant small talk when she suddenly said, "Can I eat, please?" Then she complained that she could not eat because I was talking. I was not discussing any unpleasant subject and wasn't talking to her. After that, no one said much of anything and no one really ate anything. I had not wanted to mention it, but decided to tell the league secretary. She has been very friendly, and we've been playing Words With Friends. Seems to have been a bit of backstabbing in several groups as the season comes to an end. A shame. The league secretary told me that I won that final game for the team, and the record shows that I had the highest score (when the handicap is counted). I need not to dwell on this; just practice some more and go my own way.
Sorry about the differences between you and the English teacher, Sandi. I am sure I would enjoy teaching with you.
I had been watching TV - now I want some free time.Shirley You sure have met up with a Bad Egg - you should have dropped your bowling ball on her toes.She was more then rude - I think she was jealous of your improvements but she has a problem or issue with herself in order to be so spiteful to another person - It isn't anything you have said or done, I'm sure. It is disturbing and I pray you don't let her words and actions weigh on your emotions.You have places to go and friends to see ♥
Sandi I wish you didn't need to deal with "people friction". Especially when it 5 days a week.... Keep your head up and just walk on by when you can. You are very strong and remember that you are there for the kids. ♥
Jo, you made me laugh. I needed that. I was near tears earlier today. I agree with Jo, Sandi.
I am here to say Goodnight to all ♥Prayers for all of us and our family and friends. SED & AOYPI ♥ us
Sandperson just stomped out the door. Off to deliver sleepy dust - except Jo has already gotten hers.Shirley, I am so very very sorry about the rude team mate and that she made banquet attendees, and you, uncomfortable. I suspect she is insecure and threatened by your progress and contribution to the team. Tear someone else down to make herself appear better. Please do not let that woman affect you. I know you well enough to say you are a terrific person with a kind and generous heart. Sandi, sorry you have a difficult situation. Head high. Do what you believe in your heart is best and makes you feel good about being you.Night light is on. Restful sleep for all.
Heading to bed. Scanned the blog quickly.((hugs)) Shirley! Sounds like that lady has a BIG problem. Good grief! It is a game!Night all! SED!!
SHURLEY my life experience tells me people who are as ugly and lacking in people skills and arrogantly project self importance are unhappy people regardless if their projections. Either way , I would rather her room than her company!!!The point is SHIRLEY HUNTER YOU ROCK AWESOME. You are our friend and we are blessed to call you FRIEND.Blessed Be
Goodorming my eagle friends - it's Wednesday.One of our students had an ATV accident back in November. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and spent months in the hospital. he is returning to school just 2 days a week and will have a one-on-one paraeducator with him. The para was hired yesterday and his parents are anxious for Kalob to get back to school, so we have scheduled his IEP meeting for this Friday.That means he needs an IEP! Yikes! You won't see me on the blog until I get it written. I can do this! Shirley, safe travels today and ENJOY!!! There will be no mean bowling lady at your reunion - just friends who will be so happy to see you! :)Prayers for Larry.Have a good day all.

Good Wonderful Wacky Wednesday to allSandi - what a challenge! I am anxious to hear about Kalob. I guess I am just wondering or rather comparing him to Michael concerning his abilities after having the TBI.I'm sure you will give him the bestwelcome ♥Shirley I wish you had 10 more years of reality concerning your bowling team member - then you would have been able to say "Excuse me - what is your problem lady?"HAPPY AND SAFE TRAVELS TO YOU ND ENJOY EVERY MINUTE WITH YOUR FRIENDS. Requesting pictures over on FB or on this blog when you return.
Good morning.Shirley, have a wonderful time.Sandi, sorry about the new IEP. Try to have a nice weekend.JudyE, many thanks for the owl/cat video. I've watched it twice.

Hubby stopped me by the Nursery last evening where my gs works. I got a beautiful hanging basket of calibrachoa (tiny purple and pink flowers) I'm sure as always the kids will bring lots of flowers to be plantedin all my empty pots on Mother's day.
Have fun Judie! Gossip - will I never expected you to indulge in such a thing lol
Prayers for Larry's day to go well.Paula - it's not easy being a caregiver but you certainly need to be commended for all your love and efforts to keep Larry's spirits up. Bless ya, gal.

Hello everyone.Back from lunch. It was good to see my friends from the big school house. Happy "do" day, Jo. What fun to see all the grandkids. Sad to report that a crow got one of Isla's eggs. So two potential osprey babes for her.Live cam working. Two adorable eaglets visible.Headed to put my feet up. Leftovers tonight.
Hope Shirley checks in soon. She should be at or very near her destination.
Just home andI have no LIVE OR STILL both out
BUMMER BUMMERBUMMERJO DID you see the other tie died t shirts at walmart with the eagle on them I bought two
Neither cam is working for me either JudyE.BBL
Untangling the fishing line from Justice the other day video
Thanks for the feedback JUDIE gonna go watch the news want to see what went on in today trail of the woman who killed both her kids for their own good she says I will have to try to remember to watch on line tomorrow
the video is short but sweet OK gonna go to rewind the news
Judy - no cams for meSomething must be wrong a they both went down and it wasn't storming whenthey did. I had the Still reset earlier and it seemed ok.I'll try to call Dawn (Steve's person to cal when he isn't there)in the morning
Judy - I wasn't at Walmart - one of the gals on Eagle Peeps, FB, mentioned them with a picture. However; at Cracker Barrel there are lots of Eagle shirts for the 4th of July.
Judie glad you enjoyed your lunch.When my past employee friends and Iget together it turns out to be fun catching up.I watched Jeopardy - now I am taking a break. I'll watch mystery ofFather Brown and then Death in Paradise on WETA2 (my 265)Off I go to TV
A great poop shoot right at the camera lens Was on FB
Dinner over - pasghetti. Jo, I think you have more channels as we don't get WETA2 just WETA. I'll recheck the program schedule. Otherwise, it looks like cooking channel and news.Today was tiring. Walking three blocks was more painful than I expected. Guess I need to confer with the vascular guy. So what? Lunch was delicious and being with friends is always such a wonderful time.We need Hoda, Shirley, Kay, Paula, Margy,Sandi, Wanda and lots of others to check in. Hope no one locked the front door.BBL
Sorry the cams are out.Had a terrific day today.A bit unreal in that the weather is perfect. The flight was amazing and people were very friendly and yoga rocked awesome, my meals were fantastic and I spent the afternoon praying my gratitudes. Blessed Be.I can not believe the generosity of heart of friends and the friendliness of people I just met today. The vastness of the mountains that surround us is magnificent. No wonder it is cold. The Glaciers are fully covered with fresh snow and some of the back country lakes are still frozen.I have to do a hike this summer to Kokannee Glacier...it will be a day hike and if I get tired I can stay in a cabin. I will see if I can get others to come with me...I saw it today from the plane and it is phenomenal...God's Grace all over the valleys around here. The Purcells, The Selkirks, The Vallahalas are stunning mountain ranges.I wished you all would come and visit.
HODA I am so jealous of your beautiful surrounding all the magnificent views I was in total aww looking at your pictures just breathtaking
Watching AI Got some sort of good news Got a call from Jordyn saying Oma you can pick me up in car line OKAngie came on the phone and I said what up with that? She replied that they were on the way home and a friend called broke down so Angie went picked up Carl and went to her rescue which made them super late getting home 715 Jordyn still had her 5 sentence to write in regards to a wedding of a kindergarten teacher getting married answering 5 question about marriage Odd I think for a 6 yr old Which usually is a chore Well on the way home Angie said something to Jordyn about no time to do homework etc so when they got home Jordyn went and got her homework and wrote the 5 sentences all on her own and did a fantastic job on it in just a couple of minutes too. Angie was in total aww of her getting it done before bed time at 8ish Then Jordyn said I am done now Oma can pick me up Angie didn't want to disappoint here Because she did such a great job in the short time on her her work, Usually she is Miss Fidgety antsie pants and take forever to do her work Angie asked Jordyn where was this little girl for the past couple of months LOL They have seen such a remarkable change in Jordyn ever since a little girl that sat next to her was moved in her class. She is a little holy terror Hate to say this about a 6yr old but even her own parents say so so they are thinking the moved has improved Jordyn So I will have some Jordyn time tomorrow
got the call a bit ago had this written but hadn't copied and pasted it yet LOL did during commercials
One more step closer to vacation Just made out the check for the 8 day 7 night all inclusive vacation714. poorer LOL
101 Checking In! Sorry I wasn't back sooner. Have a few nature tidbits I hope I can remember to tell and got some pics of eagle nest again yesterday at Park that are still in the camera! At both Park places, things are very busy~~~tons of calls at the Park. Notice came out Apr. 30, that because of the heavy ran, sewage spilled over from Sanitary Plants and for awhile water trail camping, canoe/kayak rentals, fishing is prohibited in our area of Patuxent. Also affected the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers. So, don't touch the water!!!! Eventually it will all end up in Chesapeake Bay but hopefully will be quite dissipated by then. I'm hoping chicks and any others that are fed fish have strong stomachs!Blurry eagle nest pics I got last week were of Mom feeding a juvie. Third-handed, heard a naturalist saw 2 juvies in nest, but yesterday I just saw 1 juvie, I think, and then adult on branch out of nest. Now the leaves are also blocking everything! BOO!!!! CAM TIME. Have to find out if it's feasible and if any of our donations can be used for that?!Anyway, yesterday t6he Osprey cam showed no full eggs in the nest anymore, but both adults go back to their home now and then. I think 3 sets of eggs have been laid, so hopefully they won't lay more. It's probably too late for any chicks to be mature enough by Sept. to migrate. Hopefully he cam on first nest can work and go online. Didn't get chance to talk to the expert!More later~~~Hope everyone is doing OK & in good or getting better health!xxxoooxxx
Happy for you Judy and Jordyn time ♥Hoda your pictures from the plane arebreathtaking. Question: the photos you have shared include comments from way back in 2013. Whatever wason your phone came over... Check ourFB - I have no idea how to send a current pic and older comments show up.
Shirley - I hope you are checkedinto your room and you gals arecatching up and having a pj party.FB: 8 hrs ago Shirley reached her destination. Happy Times!
JO that is a silly facebook thing I notice every time I post picture in any of my albums all the comments come over with the current pictures posted and sometime it can be funny when the comments don't pertain to the pictures posted

Goodorming my eagle friends.Didn't get the IEP finished, even though I worked on it til 9pm, so I probably won't be on the blog again today. Just know I am thinking of you all!Hope Shirley has a great day today!Hoda, your yesterday sounded wonderful - haven;t had time to look at pics on FB.Prayers for Larry.Have a great day all.
Good morning.Off to visit another "ole folks" home. Will read back and report when I return.Have a wonderful morning.
Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!Looks like we're off to a slow start today---perhaps others are having "off" days like the last couple of them were for me. Twixt have to do's, errands, lunch with a friend yesterday and a worried mind over my cousin's plight---I had little steam to go on---sorry to be out of touch.Our eaglets are changing so fast and lookin' good.Finally got some answers on the Guthrie fire damage. Joyce and Johnny have, in retirement, retained 15 acres of the farm they bought as young marrieds, including the home and two barns. The fire took out their stand of trees, many of them fruit trees and came close enough to the house to char the veggies that had gotten a start in their garden. However, it did not damage the house or the barns, still filled with equipment and hay ! The electricity and phone service are out, but they have a generator to keep the freezer/frig/TV going and cell phones for communication. Guthrie is right smack in Tornado Alley, quaking lately perhaps due to Fracking, and not unaccustomed to fires like these, unfortunately. Folks who live there must be of sturdy stock or just plain crazy in MHO ! Main thing is that they are safe and sound. What a huge relief and we thank you for holding them in your hearts and prayers ! Here's hoping all is well with SHIRLEY as she reunites with old friends, with SANDI as she finishes the IEP, with PAULA's Larry as he recoups.May you each have a super day of problem solving, missions accomplished and just plain fun, hopefully "in the sun".♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
