    No such thing as a squirrel-proof bird feeder. Furry-tailed tree rats have overcome every obstacle I've ever tried.

    They'll go right down a chain. So will raccoons. Coat the chain with petroleum jelly, and the top of the feeder, too, if it's metal or plastic. You can also use a seed like safflower that squirrels and raccoons won't eat. Cardinals love it,and we have finches and chickadees and wrens that eat it, too. Good luck.

    Anyone have any extra petroleum jelly? I just want to see what kind of crowd we have today.

    WHOOO HOOOOO! This morning I woke up to find out that we are finally going to get enough snow for me to actually fire up the 40 year old snow blower! On the other hand, it was sunny and 45 here today, but TWC said it will start snowing after midnight and we will get 6 to 8 inches by Monday. SNOW IS FREAKING AWESOME!

    BTW, can someone (or multiple people) fill me in on what this quest to get to 8K in here is all about.

    BTW, did anyone else know the common nightcrawler earthworm did not inhabit the Americas prior to 1492?

    Dan, is there a hack that gives stats on posting and threads starting for the year? Can we see a list of total posts for the year, total new threads, and top 10 posters? That would be interesting.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Must be an echo in here ...

    The current exchange rate for Danish Kroner to American dollars is 5.5:1. When last I visited (1998) it was 8.75:1. Just saying.

    There is nothing wrong with that if if she was at least a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. When I lived in PA, I dated a girl that lived about an hour away... but she was a 9 and my wife (a 9.95) lived 65 miles from me when we met. She almost stood me up on our first date... at a church!

    So wise.

    I'd do it if I have to
    bustin caps with this a heat and load it clip up after clip
    I'm packin my gauge, if I feel it
    The glock, the gat, the nine, the heaters
    See I be bustin caps like my amp be bustin speakers
    So how do you figure that Big Boi be scared to blast ya
    You 'posed to be quickest draw, but man, I hail em faster
    1-2-3, you need to think about the future
    Before I shoot your ass and dilute your blood with lead
    From my hollow tips, I'll send you to an early grave

    I bought birdseed after my 5k. I bought 50# of black oil sunflower seeds, a Squirrel Brick, and some peanuts in the shell. I don't even pretend to feed the birds, we just say we're going to feed the squirrels. I like squirrels.

    Last week I bought a 25 pound bag of birdseed at Aldi for five bucks.

    It's new years eve so there must be some shellfish consumed (I don't know why though). I've cranked up the John Prine while making some crabby mac & cheese. I forgot how much I love this song:

    Congrats! Running is a personal thing. That is why it is great. Personal records are what matter. Not anyone else. Good work!
