The Great Backyard Bird Count

Join me for the Great Backyard Bird Count!

Yes another year has passed and it's time to get ready to count the birds!

''The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is for everyone, from beginner birdwatchers to experts, and anyone can participate from anywhere in the world. Counting birds provides scientists and conservationists with a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Bird Studies Canada, and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share. Please join us for the GBBC, Friday, February 14th through Monday, February 17th, and together we can make our local birds count!''

 Find out more at www.birdcount.org


You can even send and Ecard to friends and family to get together for a fun and educational outing! Kids love it!
This will be my 7th year participating!



Who knows who you'll see ♥♥♥


Have fun!

Your Yearly Dementia Test

Your Yearly Dementia Test
(only 4 questions)



Yep, it's that time of year again for us to take our annual senior citizen test.
 
Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important
to keep mentally alert.  If you don't use it, you lose it!
 
Here is a very private way to gauge how your memory compares to your last test.
Some may think it is too easy, but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty.
 
Take this test to determine if you're losing it or not. 
The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.
OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

#1. What do you put in a toaster?








Answer: 'bread.'  If you said 'toast', just give up now and go do something else.
And, try not to hurt yourself.

 
If you said, bread, go to Question #2.


# 2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?








Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question.Your brain is already over-stressed and may even overheat.Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Women's Weekly or Auto World. However, if you did say 'water', proceed to Question #3.






# 3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks,what is a green house made from?







Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass.

 
If you said 'green bricks', why are you still reading this???  PLEASE, go lie down!


 
But, if you said 'glass,' go on to Question #4.



 


# 4. Do not use a calculator for this: 

You are driving a bus from New York City to Philadelphia.
In Staten Island, 17 people got on the bus.
In New Brunswick, 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on.
In Windsor, people get off and 4 get on.
In Trenton, 11 people get off and 16 people get on.
In Bristol, 3 people get off and people get on.
And, in Camden, 6 people get off and 3 get on. 
You then arrive at Philadelphia Station.

 
Without going back to review, how old is the bus driver?






Answer:
Oh, for crying out loud!



 
Don't you remember your own age?!?!  It was YOU driving the bus!
If you pass this along to your friends, pray they do better than you.

PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!

Shabby Cottage Corner


This blank corner wall has been bugging me for a while now. I wasn't sure what I was going to put there to bring the level up to be close to the other side. It made Katie depressed too.


A few months ago I was playing around and ended up making kind of a free form Dream Catcher using a hanger as the base. I went outside and found a neat stick that I added diagonally.


Torn fabrics, yarn and ribbons coordinate in the same pastels.
Yeh, since we aren't receiving any rain I think I'm getting Spring Fever ;)


A few feathers from my sister's chickens were added here and 
there to add to the movement too.


I brought in my old vintage Screen Door from the farm and sandwiched part of it between the entertainment center and the wall.


I then hung the Dream Catcher on it.
The length stops right above my Grandmothers old bell I have under the cloche I made by turning a glass upside down and adding a marble to the top for the handle.  You can see an old photo I have of  a relatives farm that used to be here in the town I live in.


I hadn't realized how good it went with 
my Stained Glass Floor Lamp.


I like the way it turned out and can't wait until it warms up so I can open the window next to it and see it blow in the breeze.
Cost $0, I had or repurposed what I had.Yippee!


Yes, that is part of our Christmas Tree on the left of the photo.....it is finally down and put away!
