Act soon

Time is running out Republican Congressmen.  The longer you take, the more the poison gets spewed.  It's time to get a 'backbone' or 'intestinal fortitude' as they say.  Your names will never be honored in history but they will be remembered.  Do the words 'guilt' or 'cowardice' ever enter you minds?  You have put a  'black mark[' in the history of this great country.  Do you not understand what our future generations will have lost?  You are supposed to represent all the people all the time. We and those ahead, are being denied that promise you made when sworn in.  Open your minds, before it's too late.  It's not about party lines, it's about each and everyone of us in this great land.............................marge

Trump vs Canadian children

School children from Windsor, Ontario Canada were blocked by Canadian municipal leaders from visiting Detroit, Michigan USA.  Why"  The City's leaders couldn't take the chance that those that aren't blonde and blue eyed, might be pulled aside for interrogation and proof that they really are Canadians.  Not newer Canadians but with families that go back several generations.  Our President (and I use the word Loosely) and his Cabinet members and fellow tunneled visioned Republicans have turned our government upside down.  Is there not a Republican who understands this and is willing to put a stop to it?  Is their salary and permanent retirement funds more important than the Founding Fathers and our Constitution?  Let's not even mention losing all our freedoms.  I wish they could read my blog.  We may be going to Hell in a hand basket, sooner than we think.........................marge

Waiting.........

I'm still waiting for someone to make and sell chocolate cottage cheese.  Surely it can't be that difficult!  You creative food people.  Go for it!   Riches galore!..................marge

OK. One last try.

I just tried something new.  Hard to explain.  Aluminum circles used many years ago to paint in middle of car tires.  Of course I can't see the feeders as well because of them.  In two days I'll let you know.  SIGH....................................marge

I may have won the war

Or not.  My outdoor double plant holder has been my bird seed holder for several years now.  I put two different kinds of bird seed out.  The squirrels have a definite preference.  They only like the fancy bird blocks.  It has been an ongoing battle for about a year.  Vaseline on the pole worked for a long time.  Unfortunately the summer sun melts it away.  Hot red pepper sprinkled on the seeds was a pain.  Recently the good old fashioned 'slinky' was recommended.  The squirrels have managed to figure out the curly wires.  The black ones are a little smarter than the big brown ones.  Changing the ways and angles turned out to be only a stopgap measure.  Until today.  I say that hesitantly.  The day isn't over and I did get a late start.  WD 40, sprayed on the pole and curved parts staying away from the seeds of course.  A couple hours have gone by.  I know.  That's a really short time for a test.  So far, not one squirrel!  However, taking into account it is later in the day and quite cold, no birds either.  And yes.  I checked the ground.  No lifeless bodies.  Onward and upward.  I'll keep you posted!..........................marge
