Thanks for the obituary for Doreen, Debs, a multi talented, and ever so kind friend. We have much to learn from her spirit.

I had a family problem over the New Years holiday. My brother Terry age 65 oops 66 he just had a birthday yesterday had a stroke about two months back but has recovered. I called him New Years day to wish him happy new year
and his phone was disconnected so I panicked calling his ex wife Lynda to say that had she seen him because his phone was disconnected, so together we called his landlord couldn't get through, we called all the hospitals no Terry admitted, we called his part time work at Home Depot and they said he wasn't working until Thursday, now new years day was on Tuesday and Linda told me Terry had a gambling problem (I didn't know that) so he might be out at the casinos or celebrating new years downtown because Vancouver has a big fireworks show so I had to wait until we heard from him in which she never called me until the next day when he showed up at her place so I was relieved he was alive and figured he was celebrating our polar bear swim at English Bay every new years for about 50 years. So yesterday he comes by to visit me and Gary because it's his birthday now 66 :mihihi: so he ate dinner with us and then left to go to his new 3 bedroom condo and had been moving to from his bachelor suite with a rent increase of 2.4% to a new shared condo 3 bedroom and sharing with 2 roommate's for $600 a month each, so that is why the phone disconnect phew :faint: all that trouble for nothing because he never told the family or his ex wife he was moving to pay cheaper rent :dunno: :ohmy:

Have a nice day my friends today is my other brother Johnny's birthday and yes all three of us are Capricorns
why did this come up twice :dunno: :puzz:

off to view the cams and thanks for the link Scott and Carolyn concerning the dog and snowy owl :owl: :gdog:

getting big those great Dane pups Iona :gdog:

Deb, what a beautiful photo of Doreen.
Her smiling eyes and warm smile shine from her face. :rh:
Thank you for sharing that with us.

Thanks for the latest eagle nest & updates, Iona. Very nice article about the Hamlet nest. :yes:

Scott, great close encounter with the Coopers. I've not seen my hawk perched in the tall tree again but I hear it routinely. Yesterday it seemed to be accompanying of a kettle of vultures. My backyard variety is slowing growing. So far the usual birds such as you named.

Carolyn, you are a word fairy. :)

elle, :luck: you get to see your yard owl.

JuD & Gary :bye 1:

Finally cooled off here and I'm loving it. Humidity low as well, even better. :thumlft:

Aah! Rest in Peace beautiful inside and out Doreen. :brknhrt: We miss you.

Naoma: 3 neighbours have told me they have either seen or heard the owl(s) . I may just be missing him :( But I am happy to hear he/she is back in the 'hood.

Carolyn: Thank you for your poems and delightful presence here on this thread.

Scott: One of the Coopers Hawks nests on the green at the end of our street blew down in the windstorm we had recently. I say " one of" because they have built 4 nests there :roll: :grlol; So they have others to choose from.

:bye 1: everyone. Glad all is well. :huggie:

Thanks Debs :ty: :huggie: :hug: :grhug:

Seeing a picture of Doreen brought back all the sadness I felt in her passing. I considered her a very good friend and a fighter until the end. She endured a lot with Cancer and she always put on a brave face and always seemed happy to me that is why I found myself admiring her attitude in such a bad time of her life. They had a nice eulogy for her and she will always be remembered to me here as a very courageous woman. I loved her and will miss her :brknhrt: :ohmy: :grhug:

We feel the same way about Doreen Judi. :)
Nice s'caps from the SWFL cam.

Thanks for the links Naoma. :)
I hope the redwood super grove is a success. That would be awesome for later generations to see.
Cool story and pics of the Malabar giant squirrel. What a lovely animal.

The hummer wouldn't stay still long enough for a pic but I did manage to get pics of a few critters as I sat watching from the couch. A male Downy Woodpecker, Eurasian Collared-Doves in the pear tree, some Juncos, and a squirrel visiting the deck were a few. The squirrel pic was later when the sun had disappeared so it's grainier.

Delightful pictures of eagles, and Scott's backyard birds.....makes the morning cheerful.

Well, the dog by my side helps too!

Little, well mini, goldendoodle, has a face like a poodle,
she does not eat strudel (but I do)
She has barks for each expression,
varying in digression.....

From you woke me up, wooh wooh, to woof,
a pine cone to chase on the path, all is good.
And WOOF, which is yeah Dad is home....
all is good.

Good day friends

Einstein stopped an old guy in the yard today trying to get in the gate and pet him and the guy persitted until Einstein went and sat down in his favourite spot and then the old guy waves at Einstein and goes up the street like Einstein human :mihihi: we think he's our fur child
...…should take Einstein to some Residence so that he can be a therapy dog in his old age 12 1/2 to old people as they all love him in the neighborhood but that sounds like to much work to me :%: :grhug:

To all my Nesties :wave: :love: :grhug:

:announce:
We have got a big problem up here in the North West with our Orca Pod is dying off because they are starving literally starving and they haven't had any babies in 4 years and the Pod has gotten very small...…. especially this year as with all the rain, has not allowed the salmon to be plentiful going to spawn they get washed out to sea and most of our Aquatic birds, Orca, Eagles, Seals etc are starving for lack of salmon so the eagles have taken up the Delta city landfill that does the trimmings bins for the City of Vancouver because there is lots of protein in the soil made from trimmings...….
I also know they also feed on Herring but have not been to the Hornby Island chat lately to find how strong the Herring Run was just the Harrison River Salmon Run, and it was not good, so if salmon are scarce in North Western Canada then it staves all of our wildlife which depend on Salmon for a meal including the Grizzly Bears.
So they are thinking of feeding harbor seals to the Orca so they will survive or if they keep starving for lack of fish (not plastic) the Pod will die off in a year the experts say. But the thought of feeding the Orcas Seals is a bit unsettling to me also......just my opinion :chin: :ohmy: what do you get out of this Scott and Elle it's bad eh our pristine Rain Forest being clear cutted and on the Island Elle and even David I heard him talking about the Eagles on the news the other day, we are in a bad mess environmentally? BC is now polluted with plastic our pristine waters are killing off the Orcas eating the plastic because of low Salmon count this November eco system gone arrie :shame:
We must do something to save the planet :cry1: Just don't pollute...…. drink from paper straws not plastic and like Victortia BC you can't get plastic grocery bags they are all paper :thumlft: follow the trend the rest of BC

Everything's better with a dog by your side Carolyn. :)

Lovey pics of Einstein and the eagle Judi. :)
There are similar problems world wide and if there isn't a buck to be made from it, it stays on the back burner. (Just my opinion.)

Good Morning All, just catching up.

January is always busy for me. Had to work inventory last week, wooee is it tiring. I left work went home ate dinner, then went straight to bed early each night. Glad to have that over now.

Elle - glad your owl is ok, hope you get a sighting yourself soon. Birthday is July 10. Looking forward to it.

My poor kitty has been traumatized. Sunday Porter got his head stuck in the loop of a plastic bag that had some pine cones in it. He took off running scared and frightened and I chased after trying to get him unstuck. Well I did finally get the bag off him, and after about 5 minutes he was fine and happy. But poor Zoe was really frightened by the whole thing. She went and hid downstairs and would not come out all day. Finally in the evening I went and got her out of hiding and brought her upstairs, where she promptly got on the chair underneath the dinning room table and stayed a few hours. Just before we got ready to go to bed she came down from the chair and got some food and water. But all day Monday she was still very nervous and only came out a bit. This morning she was better, but still nervous. At least she is eating and drinking and moving about a bit. I think it will take a few days of patience and love for her to settle back down. Strange Porter is usually the scaredy cat and Zoe the brave. But this time Porter got over it quickly, and Zoe is shaken up. Just goes to show you never know. I wish I had gotten rid of the pine cones right away and recycled the bag like I usually do, but I got busy and just set them down for a few minutes, well it doesn't take a cat long to get curious. Oh well live and learn. Thankfully they are both all right.

Gotta go back and check out some of the links, hugs all :grhug:

Thanks Windy for your b-day which when I went to record it I realised I already had it on the list. Obviously I have asked you for it already and either you did not remember or you were being polite not telling me you had already given it to me. The important thing is it is recorded and I will hopefully remember to wish all of you a Happy Birthday on the appropriate dates. I am glad you are looking forward to it. You are still a youngster. Probably the baby on the thread. :)
Oh my about Porter. :cat: Poor kitty. And a timely example of the hazards of plastic to animals. Who would have thought the wonderful invention of plastic products would be such an environmental disaster. I was out for lunch downtown today and there was a demonstration in the inner harbour about the plight of our resident Orca pod. I hope we can save them. :luck:
Still no owl sighting in my yard. It has found a good source for rats apparently and I just hope no one has resorted to poison. I have a poster in the window of my car about rat poison and it is amazing how many people have asked me about it. A lot of people don't even think about it so I am pleased I have educated some potential poisoners.
Rodenticides.jpg
I actually put a copy of the poster on one of those black rat poison boxes I saw outside an apartment building and when I went back a couple of days later the box was gone. The power of One. If we all do our little bit it adds up to a lot.
More rain here and strong wind at times too. But it has been a pretty mild winter so far. I hope it stays that way.

The power of one,
cannot be undone, we leave a path,
we chart a course, we make a difference....
Keep it up....

An owl, eats it prey, we see that thing fly away,
a hawk too, taking what is its due,
we know to applaud their course, bravo!

Good Night all,
