One of his finest! 👏

We saw him and The Range post concert 20yrs ago in our local Wmsbrg McDonald's ordering right before closing late one night, just as we were. It was one of those double-take moments. Williamsburg is his home town.

Yeah, what a surprise, huh?!

I've read so many threads about bad/conservative judgments and say to myself, "that sounds like Tennessee."

Sure 'nuff, I'm usually right.

At least we're not Florida or Texas.

Excellent!! Yet birds need more than just habitat: insecticides are...

...severely damaging bird populations too.

Declining insect populations threaten birds
Birds that eat insects are literally at a loss when insecticides cause a drop in the number of insect prey available...

"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
- paraphrasing John Muir

I'm lucky to live in a designated bird sanctuary here on the East Coast... Yet I do not have a decent camera nor skills to take good pictures.

Had not read this...it's just AMAZING!

I flashed back to the movie Martian with Matt Damon.

Thank you, Judi!

The latest mutated Covid has hit NYC hard.

My son's dealing with it too, but not too well I must say. Posted earlier...

Yesterday, he decided to order Paxlovid. Sometime after he took his first pill last night, he texted me:

"Paxlovid mouth is awful...
Just spent like 10 mins vomiting and can't consume anything because my mouth tastes like burnt and soapy grapefruit."

He's (was) a healthy 35yo living in NYC. I don't know what advice to give him. He & his g.f. broke up months ago, that's why he's leaning on his Mom now. I am not complaining; I just do not know what to tell him to counter the terrible effects of the Paxlovid.

Any suggestions are welcome, please. Thanks.

NYC is being hit hard apparently.

My son lives there and tested positive with his 2nd bout just today. Had his first bout last yr., so it has to be another strain of Covid.

K & R

Hubby's cousin's wife was a flight-attendant for AA for 35yrs! And her daughter is now a pilot for American!!

Her hubby is a semi-famous hot-air balloonist. Guess the family likes being in the air.
