Mr and Mrs Robin Continue Nest Building On My Window Sill!

5-2-17 1:27 PM EST: This is officially day 3 at the Mr and Mrs Robin construction site, also known as my bathroom window sill. I must admit to not knowing whether these two lovebirds are married or just living in sin. Your guess is as good as mine.

I set the tripod up a little higher today and it's been cold and rainy a durn 'gain. Not usually as cold this time of year around here, but the rain is usual and customary. That's why when the sun comes out after the rains, Michigan goes all technicolor.

The 143rd Running of The Kentucky Derby! An Open Thread!

5-6-17 1:02 PM EST: Today is the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby and the race is at 6:30 PM EST. It's called the most exciting 2 minutes in sports, and NBC will be live streaming it. Whether you'll be able to see that on your computer or not is anyone's guess. I went to the live stream page and it told me I needed to download the latest version of Flash Player. I haven't done that yet because I think it might also be streaming on the main page at http://www.nbcsports.com/

Dana Loesch on NRA's New Training and Protection Program!

5-1-17 7:02 PM EST: Dana Loesch appeared with Stuart Varney earlier today to talk about "Carry Guard", a combination intensive concealed carry training and insurance program of sorts which pays your legal fees and gives you competent representation in those cases where you are forced to defend yourself with lethal force, and the law then tries to charge you with a crime.

Growing and Flying! Friday Night Music with Me You and Brew!

5-5-17 8:00 PM EST: I sure miss those robins. I also wonder if they looked at each other that last day they were here and agreed they'd flown too far north too soon. We just can't seem to get the nip out of the air. We had frost this morning, and barely made it into the 50's this afternoon. Not even supposed to break the 60F mark until next Friday.

A Couple of Mike Rowe "That's The Way I Heard it" Episodes!

5-3-17 7:00 PM: Well, no sign of the Robins on the window sill at all today. I saw a few in the yard, just not sure if that was them or not. The nest ended up on the ground again this morning. It was there at 7 AM, but back on the ground a little while later. I put it back up again and used some spray adhesive to secure it to the corner of that sill.
