Hello blog friends! Sorry about the dearth of postings lately. I want to thank those of you who check back from time to time. I understand that you must feed your blog to attract readers, much like putting out food for the birds, a steady supply is best.
Speaking of birds, I've been busy readying my backyard for the birds who will be staying the winter. We've built a huge roosting box to keep the birds warm for when the temperature gets frigid. I've put a heated birdbath out back for when every bit of water outside is frozen solid. I have a stash of pinecones, peanut butter and seeds to treat the birds with this winter. I've planted some bird friendly shrubs so my yard will be the top pick of the birds in years to come.
I've been researching native plants, and also tree and wildlife identification. I helped my son's boy scout troop earn some requiems for rank advancement by helping them identify plants and wildlife.
I'm also busy as a chauffeur for my son, driving him to sax lessons, swim lessons and scouts.
My Mastercard has been getting a work out too. Seems I had some pent up shopping to do.
I've also taken to watching more TV than I'm accustomed to. This past week I saw Desperate Housewives, Brothers and Sisters, CSI, 1 versus 100, and Deal or No deal. I gave up TV when I started blogging, there is only room for one of those past times. It also means that I see more commercials.
I'll be glad when election day gets here. I always hate watching the political ads on TV. I find them to be a sad commentary on our government. Every single politician is inept, immoral or criminal according to the ads. No wonder that's what a lot of Americans believe.
The United States is now estimated to have over 300 million people. As the population grows the impact of my vote on election day shrinks. My vote in a national election seems worthless. I don't ever remember voting in a local election where the votes were close enough that my vote mattered.
