Henrietta and the chicks

Well, we just got some chickens here yesterday! We’ve been working on their shelter and pen area for a week now getting it ready for them.

Some friends of ours have been raising chickens for 15 years now and they said they had a new family born a little less than 2 weeks ago … with 14 chicks that we could have!

Here’s are 2 links to a site that has a picture of the cross on the type of chickens:

They make small eggs but they are really cute!

Should start getting some eggs from the chicks in about 5 months or so.


Well, it turns out it is Mozilla and Apple!

Turns out that the problem I was having regarding speaking text was both Apple And Mozilla.

I went into the Speech section of the System Preferences, and looked at the setting for the keystrokes for speaking text and set it to Control V. Now even though it doesn’t it ‘show’ Speak under Services, Speech, it does now work in Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey by highlighting and using the Control V key combo.

Very happy there was a work around for it. 😀 (At least for the Speak Text).

Still need to have Thunderbird be able to print individual Address Book cards; instead of only the complete Address Book. That only changed recently and I don’t like it one bit. Very annoying issue.

Differences between dogs and cats

Renee, a confirmed cat person, sent this to me and I was ROFL…well, maybe not literally, but you get the picture. 😉

Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary…

Day 983 of my captivity.

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.

They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.

Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a ‘good little hunter’ I am. Bastards.

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of ‘allergies.’ I must learn what this means and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow — but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released – and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.

The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now………

Yea! The images and .ogg audio files are back on the Klok – Memorial, and the Spring 2006 Blossoms page and on the the following Memorial postings for my Dad: Until We Meet Again and To My Dad .. In Loving Memory.

Please let me know if you run across any other broken links to image or audio files. Thanks!

BambisMusings is back!

Just wanted to post and let everyone know that is back online!

Thanks to Mark for his help in getting my blog postings converted to the new type of imports from a recent sql backup. Your help was greatly appreciated Mark!

I will work on trying to get posts from July and August that are missing right now, but if I can get to the current sql I will try to import those few manually. I also have to change the links for all the pictures on my blog and that will have to come in time. But they will be back very soon!

Right now, I am just so happy to be back up and running!

Thought for the Day – June 24, 2008

Rest in Peace, George Carlin – George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008). You will be missed. Another one gone…

Recalling George Bush’s ranting about how the endless “war on terror” is a battle for freedom, Carlin echoed James Madison’s thinking with a simple question: “Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?”

From George Carlin, American Radical, By John Nichols, Posted June 23, 2008.
