Good morning Lily, Lee and Agnes!   I'm back...didn't feel to well yesterday so after work I just hit the bed to watch t.v.

Lily, how awful that it takes so long to load a vid and that you can't use your computer during that time.   Don't feel bad, my 'garden' looks miserable right now, too.   And I have to google which trees need pruning and fertilizing and when

Lee, that's interesting about a duck's life in a pool versus a pond.   I didn't know that.   I hope it is somewhat warmer for you so the pain will lessen in your feet and hands.  Lily is so kind to offer to send you some fingerless gloves.   She is so considerate.

Agnes!!  So good to see you!   We missed you but I understand perfectly how time can slip away; especially with you opening new groups.   Just visit when you can....we love seeing you!

Lily I just adore the graphic you made for me!

Hi friends,
                 nearly weekend again!!
I guess those of you who go out to work really look forward to it but stay at homes like me find it goes round so quick.
The gardens are looking a bit miserable with this weather but the bulbs are coming through nicely anyway.
Still feeding the squirrels and robin outside back door.
i was so close to the robin and he was watching me as I was talking to him.
I tried to get him to come on my hand by holding mealworms(not live!!) but no he wouldn't.
he knows I put food outside back door as he was there in a shot after I put it down.

Hi Lily and Agnes,

Agnes, though my hands and feet don't work well and the cold makes them worse, it's lots warmer here than where you are.  I'll be alright.  I'm sort of used to it.  Here we are holding hands virtually.

Lily, I love the pic of the sleeping mallard.  Using a child's wading pool is common practice, and it is all farm ducks really need.  They are unually happy with it.  Ducks who live in ponds lead short, sharp lives with much misery.  The ducks in the vid will live happily for 15 years.  The ones on the pond would be lucky to live 2 years.  The wading pool can be cleaned and filled with clean water.  The pond spreads diseases, sometimes doesn't contain enough food, and invites predators.  I'm very glad that some ducks get to live like the ones in the vid.

Hi there Lee and Vicky (and anyone else who may pop in)
Yes Lee I had a reply from that person about my comment on the ducks and they sent a link for another video where there was a small tub or something for the ducks to swim in (although not big enough in my view)
so they do at least have something but it was not showing in that first video.
no Vicky I'm not displeased with finding 2 baby fish but I just dont really want more than 2 or 3 because if more breeding goes on now I will have the problem of having to get rid of some later.
anyway I dont know if these will survive to fully grown because of the other fish especially the two big loaches.
but at the moment they are among the plants at the top of tank.
I have uploaded one video at last (2 hours!!!) wouldn't mind so much but it wont let me do anything else on the computer while it is going on.
I have put in in video thread.
Lee you could always wear those kind of gloves with the fingers out.I could get you some if you couldn't get them.There are ones for those sort of problems with the hands.

Hi Lily and Vicky,

Vicky, it is sooooo cold here.  The gloves are helping, but I have to take them off to feed and water my babes.  Yes, my hands are aching badly.  

Lily, I love the doggie playing the piano.  About the ducks, she has them housed so beautifully (even netting to protect them from hawks) that I'm sure she has a child's wading pool that she brings out once a day and fills for them to swim.  Ducks do need to be in water for a reason that you'll never guess...their eyes.  Ducks' eyes don't water so they must keep there eyes in good condition by dipping their heads under water!

Thanks for telling me about the vid.  I'm so far behind I might have missed it.

Good morning Lily, Lee and anyone else.   It's a LOT colder here this morning.   I am going off tonight and working tomorrow so if I come in it will be late.

Well Lily I was going to say congrats on another baby fish showing up but it sounds like you aren't thrilled because of the space in the tank.   I love your dog and cat graphic.      How awful that it takes so long to upload videos; especially if somehow they are lost. 

Lee, how cold is it at your house?   I bet your poor hands are aching even more.

Well I gotta run.  Have a blessed day.

Hi friends,
                Lee have you seen the duck video in other thread?
I was uploading a squirrel one to YouTube earlier and something happened on browser and then reconnected and I lost the lot!!!  I was mad I can tell you as it had been uploading an hour!
Why they take that long anyway I dont know.
i have now seen 2 baby fish in tank!!!!
I hope they survive but also hope no more in there as I wont have room later especially if the parents breed again.
they never have before to my knowledge all the time I have had them.But of course could be wrong and just never saw any as they might have eaten eggs.
but never seen any signs anyway.

elvis-video.gifGood morning friends,

eek frogs Vicky! not keen on those at all and anyway my tank is not big enough for anything else.
they wouldn't have dangling legs for long with my loaches!!!
little fish still there last time I looked,it is up high among the plants and it bobs out of the way when its parents whizz by.They wouldn't think twice about eating it but as it is so small hopefully haven't noticed it.
They must have eaten all the other eggs, cant see any signs of any other fry but it is not impossible, may be another or more in there .
Time will tell.

Good evening Jill, Lee, Pam and Lily!   It's late and I'm tired so this will be short. 

Pam, sounds like your daughter really enjoyed the fish and learned a lot on how to raise them.   I know what you mean about tired of talking to yourself in some groups.   Actually I had a couple of groups (this was one of them) that were so slow for a long time and then over time (and my persistence lol) they started picking up.   In this one and my squirrel group it's mostly chatting and a graphics/videos occasionally but in 2 of my other groups they are pretty lively...in fact one came back from the brink of death. 

Lily, I hope the bigger fish don't eat the baby.   And congrats on you finding it in your tank.   I know how tiny they are.    Have you ever thought of putting a frog or two in your tank?   I love them...especially the white ones with their long legs...they're adorable as they grow and their legs dangle behind them.

Lee and Jill, how are you both doing?   I hope you had a great day!

Hi Lily and Pam,

Oh Lily, you have a baby.  You have lots of plants and things in your tank so he should be able to hide.  

I'm in several groups, Pam.  I can't do too many because I can't type too much.

Hi Pam,
            Yes I used to keep livebearers and the babies were endless.I used to take them to a shop too but they would only take them from a certain size so I had loads in 2 tanks to hang on to until big enough.
and of course they start breeding young so I had to try and separate the sexes.
the worse for fast breeding were platies,mollies, guppies are but I never had much luck keeping those they used to die quick.I think all the inbreeding was to blame and also other fish are fin nippers.
I found platies and mollies very aggressive ,always fighting each other (when they weren't making babies!!!!)
Yes seems a lot are abandoning the groups (care2 glitches haven't helped!!)
I had  a couple where no one was posting for months on end so I gave up when the hosts didnt even answer my requests as to what was happening.

2 years ago

Hi Lee, Lily, Vicky

Lily reading about your baby fish reminded me of my daughters first fish tank for the grand kids. She bought a couple of guppies and a pair of black mollies. Within hours the tank was full of baby fish. We captured as many as we could fnd and I quit counting at 50! We took them all to the fish store and the lady gave the kids a pretty ornament for there fish tank. Happy ending. They are almost invisible they are so tiny

so I know what you mean Lily by it taking its chances. Eventually they had more babies and so by this time my daughter bought a little hatchery box that I remembered latched to the side of the big tank and was submerged in the tank up to the top so the bigger fish could not eat them. It worked very well and soon it was time to take them to the fish store. It was a ritual for awhile till finally the pair lost its mate and that was the end of babies.

Vicky, I don't suppose we are in many groups together. And let's face it there are not many groups left that are not abandoned. But I am usually around most days at Care2. I don't do the news thing but rarely anymore, I quietly sign my petitions and do some clicks and go to the groups that have people stopping in. I am not much for saying hello to myself day after day so I unjoined many of those type groups last year. How about you.

Lee, how are you? Are you in many groups that are active? It seems many groups have started lately I have noticed that.

Well ladies a brand new week ahead of us. Stay warm and have a good one.

2 years ago

I forgot to say I have seen a baby fish in my tank!!!
it is very teeny at the moment though so can hardly see it.
Dont know if any more but cant see any.
maybe it just dodged being eaten by the fish when it was an egg.
It will have to take it's chances in there though as too tiny to catch and I dont really want to put it in another tank.
As it is healthy in there apparently as I haven't had them breed in the nearly 6 years I have had them.
So hopefully it will stay out of the way of the big fish until it has grown some.

Pretty graphic, Lily...especially the little fluttering butterfly.   How is your elbow? 

Lee, I'm so sorry you are now experiencing computer problems.   That is such a pain.   On my laptop I have a newer version of I.E. but I don't know how to tell which one it is.   Not sure what I have on this one but I like it better.

Jill, I deleted your red X, Photobucket said it exceeded bandwidth.   I'm not sure if you can repost it or not.

Hello Lee, Lily and Pam!   Sorry I haven't been here in a bit.   I had a lovely birthday and New Year.  

Lee, I love Cedar Waxwings...their feathers look like velvet.   We have them down here but I've never had one in my yard.  I know they eat berries.

Lily, can't wait to see pics of your planter and other ornaments.  I hope your elbow is healing nicely.  

Pam!   Good to see you and I hope you stop in more often.  I haven't been seeing you around the groups much.  

Gotta run ladies....Happy Friday the 13th!!

Hi Lily,

Those birds are cedar waxwings.  They do look something like northern cardinals.  They are about the same size and both have the crest.  The female cardinal is mostly the same color.  Cedar waxwings aren't nearly as common as cardinals though.  I've only seen them once.  I see cardinals every day.  They are permanent residents in my yard (Oops! I guess it's their yard too.).

Hi friends,
                   good morning.
Yes Lee I will take a pic of that ornament soon.
My elbow still hurts a bit, guess it will take time to go
seeing as I gave it quite a whack.
I was watching some ducks on TV, they had been rescued from a drain, lots of cute ducklings.
Also some baby hedgehogs.
Ps, the birds in above pic look something like those on the Xmas card you sent me.

Be sure to take a pic of that planter.  I'd love to see it.  You have a very nice collection of birdy things, planters and figurines.  

Are you all better from your fall?

Beautiful graphic, Jill, as always!

I can't believe it but it's supposed to snow today.  A couple of weeks ago there were more tornados just south of us.  The weather is completely crazy.

Hi Lily,

Oh yes, I saw them.  I just sort of ran out of "hand power".  They are very pretty and such a bargain.  I'd keep them inside too.  The chaffinch and tit go so nicely with your robin.  You've started a collection.  Does the robin make sounds?  It looks like it has a little speaker in its chest.

I can't be absolutely sure about the Muscovies.  I'd have to see their faces, but I think that's what they are.

Hi Lily and Lee!  Well it felt like spring today and I almost forgot and bought flowers to plant.  hahaha!   I know we will have a little more cold so I'll wait.   Each spring I say I'm not buying more flowers, until the flowers start arriving in our Garden Dept.  I bet I have hundreds of dollars of trees, flowers, etc. planted in my yard.

Lily, I love the dolphin graphic and so I had to snag it.   Thank God the winds died down and hopefully you had no damage.  I can't wait to see pics of your ornaments.  Darn, it took 5 hours to download a 15 minute program?   EEKS!!!   Oh, I'm not sure which thread it is but I posted a January calendar with a pretty red fox on it.   Just for YOU! 

Lee, yep the weather has gone crazy.   Seems like just yesterday that you all endured all that damage from the storm.   So much destruction.  How has the rebuilding gone?   It was so slow here after Katrina.  

Well I gotta run...I hope you both have a good weekend or what's left of it.  I can't get my mouseless (I hate it) laptop and Photobucket to get along right now so you will get a generic 'good night graphic'  Well crapola ya ain't even gonna get that.

Hi Lily,

That is a beautiful dolphin graphic.  I know. Those winds you've been having are ridiculous.  Those tornados we had last spring were the same.  We've never had them here.  It was supposed to be impossible because of the mountains.  Yet here they were.  Everything's completely haywire!

There is a fireworks display at Thunder Over Louisville that is the biggest in the world.  (I think)  Well anyway they come from all over to see it.   It started out small quite a few years back and has grown and grown.   I may have posted a video before not sure.

got back earlier from my visit to my sister in laws and the journey was good both ways as not so many people about at that time.
It was raining and windy when I left but at the other end it had stopped.~
we went out this morning to a shopping center and I got two garden bird ornaments but I am going to keep them indoors where I can see them more often.
Thay are nice colours, a chaffinch and a blue tit, I will get a pic on here later.
They were in a sale and only cost a couple of £'s and quite big.
Lee I saw quite a few ducks on the water looking out the bus window, some were black and white.
i have a nice video which I made from the TV the other night which I am going to put on YouTube so it will be here for you to see soon it is about a dog and  ducks , real cute.

Lily, it sounds like you have a friend who is a robin.  He trusts you.  What a wonderful thing...to be friends with a wild animal.  Could you want any better Christmas present?

I'll take care of them as soon as I finish feeding the babes, Lily!  Thanks for telling me.

However next door said the bait hadn't been touched for 3 days so hopefully they have gone.
I fed the robin out there yesterday while I was cleaning the bird baths and he sat on the table eating quite near me.

LEE LOOK OUT FOR AN E-MAIL I HAVE JUST SENT YOU
2 years ago

A very quick hello...I have to work shortly.

Lily, S.I.L./Sister....just over look it.  You know how I confuse things.  lol  I haven't seen Seven Brothers for Seven Sisters in many, many years.  I saw part of the Wizard of Oz about a month ago.

Lee, I too hope that 2012 will better for you; I had many blessings in 2011 but I crave more peace in 2012.

I'm off to work...see you both later.

HelloGroup-ChipMail-djk-1-11.pngGood morning friends,
well I guess you can say Christmas is over now.
soon went anyway.
Of course now everyone (well not everyone) is looking foward to New Years Eve, after that hopefully we can look foward to a better year,hope so anyway.
There have been so many films on TV over the holiday , just impossible to watch many.
I saw some of 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. A bit of wizard from Oz.
Cant say I watched many the whole way through, either busy or falling asleep!!!!

Sorry I haven't been here in a few days....just been hectic I guess.

Lily, that is sad about your S.I.L.'s dog dying.   It's like losing a family member and so hard to get over.  So you got a new bird feeder and some gifts for Christmas.   How awesome!

Lee, I hope things are going okay your way.   Are you getting any of the rain we got today?   We got lots and lots and I love it!

Well ladies I gotta run....bedtime.

Hi Lily,

What lovely presents and perfect for you.  Most people give me stuff I don't need or have a use for. 

I'm sorry about their dog.  I'll bet he had a long wonderful doggie life though, didn't he?

Hi Lee well my little friends will benefit as I got a new bird feeder for the line and peanuts.

Also 2 large hanging baskets for when I plant again, plus some body wash  (Is there something they aren't telling me LOL)
Also a tin of biscuits (cookies to you)

My other sister in law has something for me when I go over to her after Xmas.She is at her sisters at the moment.
She said it is a bit sad over there at the moment as their elderly dog has died recently.Always something isn't there.

Hi friends Merry Christmas,
                                            it is early Xmas day here and just getting light.I guess children everywhere have opened their presents ages ago !!!!
I know I used to.
Still got mine to open yet.
At least it isn't raining or snowing here today.
Pretty quiet here, been watching TV Xmas Eve.
loads of films on but you get fed up with them after a time and sitting there so long.
Many people have gone abroad for Xmas, roads were choc a bloc too.
Wouldn't fancy that myself,when we used to travel to my in laws years ago we used to go late at night and it was better,no one about.
but of course things have changed these days.

Hi Lily,

I'm hiding in here.  I'm afraid to go out shopping now.  Here some shoppers have used pepper spray and tasers on other shoppers!  Can you believe it?  What's the world coming to?

If you should run across that pup-in-heaven card, let me know.  I'd love to see it.

Hi FullMoon, Lily, and Vicky,

FullMoon, what a cute Santa.  Merry Christmas!

Lily, now Vicky's got me curious.  Do you have a link to the card about the dog in Heaven?  Of course I want to see it.  Santa parrot is lovely as is your fox.   

Vicky, I love that robin graphic you posted on the other forum.  I really like the sentiment too.  I just forgot to say it there.

There is a care2 e-card called 'tree party' which hasn't been picked up Vicky

Lily, I viewed the beautiful card about the dog in Heaven but saw no way to hit reply after I answered it.   That's one reason I hate that mailbox.   Is there another card I missed to open?   Anyway, thank you so much for the card.

Here is a link to the old thread; wow I can't believe we had over 200 posts.   I've closed the old thread but left it pinned if you want to go back and read the most recent posts before I unpin it.
