Too funny!  I heard about this on The WSJ This Morning …. the absolute best morning news EVER!  My mornings would never be the same without Gordon and Gina.

I hope I never get behind anyone wearing a pair of “Winkers”  LOL

OH NO …. Big Cat Diary

I can’t believe that they have put “Big Cat Diary” on hiatus.  This is my favorite program on Animal Planet.  What are the big bosses thinking?

I will miss the Lion, Leopard, and Cheetah families …. please bring them back!!

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (Polioptila caerulea)

IMG_2657_edited A tiny, long-tailed bird of deciduous forests and scrublands, the Blue-gray Gnatcatcher makes itself known by its soft but emphatic "spee" calls and its constant motion. By flicking its white-edged tail from side to side, the gnatcatcher may scare up hiding insects.




I was lucky to get these two shots …. these little guys never sit still for over a second or two.  Not the best shots but I was so happy to see one of these lovely little birds.  I did see a couple of them in early spring but this is the first sighting since then.  These were taken at Dolan’s Lake.

2009-04-18_1051 Joining Netflix is one of the best things that I have ever done!  My son has been hounding me for a long time to become a Netflix member so I finally decided to take the plunge …… Thank you Doug.

After I had to have my sweet little Albie put to sleep last December, I have not been doing any walking and I think I have gained 5-10 pounds. In other words, my size 8 jeans are just laying there and I’m wearing the 10’s now (dreadful).  I always walked Albie LEAST 6 times a day … he loved being outside in any kind of weather.  My point is this … now I can walk to the post office every other day and have a new movie to watch and shed the extra pounds.  Exercise is always good.

2009-04-18_1052 New movies are always great but I also love the fact that you can watch many older  movies and tv programs instantly on your computer or TV.  I’ve already watched several movies including some really good foreign flicks ("TELL NO ONE" was great).  This week I will watch the British TV series “MI-5”.  It was one of my favorites.


2009-04-18_1052_001 One TV series that I am going to watch from the beginning is "24".  Everyone raves about this program so I might as well jump on the bandwagon.  I was never a big fan of Kiefer Sutherland but I’m gonna give it a whirl.  These DVD’s will have to be shipped as they are not available for instant watching. DARN!


2009-04-18_1051_001 I just did my morning walk to the post office and picked up my latest movies … "Changeling" and "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". (no that is not a typo)

Great Blue Heron



One of my favorite big water birds!  He’s a beauty … always see these guys at the river.  Yesterday was a slow day for the Herons though.  I usually see at least 2 or 3 Great Blue’s but this is the only one I saw yesterday.  One day last year I saw approximately 15 of these beauties … all in one afternoon!

WLW & WordPress Woes ………..

I cannot get WLW to work with WordPress!  I have tried every fix that I have found on the internet regarding this problem and nothing has worked ……… <she screams as she pulls her hair out by the roots>

How can I live without my beloved “Windows Live Writer”.   I am by no means a fan of “micro$soft” but WLW is the best thing EVER!

Back to the drawing board ………………
