Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com

I as provided Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

The second edition Sibley Birds Guide book  is completely revised with more than 600 new paintings and 111 rare species added, new information on behavior and habitat, and more tips on finding species in the field. The book is written and illustrated by David Allen Sibley.

The illustrations in the book are 15 % to 20 %  larger for better detail. There are nearly 7000 digitally remastered paintings for better print quality. The attention to extended detail on every bird is exquisite and extensive.

I have learned to look at birds more carefully and pay more attention to their wing patterns and markings making it easier for me to identify them correctly the next time I see one. I also pay closer attention to their bill length and the overall size of the bird and learning their songs and calls.

I have learned what kind of trees or brush attract the birds in my own backyard. Some birds like older mature trees and others prefer pine trees. Some of my birds like to eat dried up berries on some of my hedges. Older trees are a good area for birds to go that like eating insects and ants that are found in and or on older mature trees.

The Sibley Guide to Birds from Chewy.Com is a must have guide for the basic bird lover. I love how the Sibley Bird Guide shows you the pictures of the young birds and then the fully mature picture of the bird. It is interesting to see how the coloring in their feathers changes as they become more mature birds.

I have learned what kind of birds like to eat at bird feeders.  I learned that if their feathers are laying down or up it means that they are cold, scared or completely relaxed. The Sibley Birds Guide is my far the best bird guide book I have ever owned. I keep it by my chair which is located by my picture window and my bird feeders for quick and easy reference.

My cats are delighted that I have the Sibley Bird guide book from Chewy.Com. With the new guide book our caregiver can attract more birds at her bird feeder to keep us entertained throughout the day.

Kite Flying Feb. 17th, 2018 in Clear Lake, Iowa

I have watched the Kites Flying over the Lake in Clear Lake, Iowa for years. The kites our not our Grandparents kites from years ago. Kites were given away at the clothing stores years ago or you could buy them at the five and dime. Long gone are the days of your just plain homemade kite.

I had a dime store kite and a large balloon kite that I would fly in the country when I was growing up. My Grandfather made an old fashioned kite for me out of small pieces of wood and paper. It worked fine and it had tail feathers on it also. My Father also made kites for me to fly when I was kid. My Father would get free kites from the local clothing stores when he was a kid.

I interviewed a man that was flying a kite over Clear Lake. I told him I was very impressed with his Eagle look a like kite. His kite took off to new heights quickly. He said he started out with a smaller kite but he wants to get a larger one each and every year.

The cost of modern kites is astonishing and has become an expensive hobby for people that they look forward to doing every year. The man I talked to enters competitions for the largest and swiftest and most unique kite. He had come in at first place twice. He had an extra large kite that looked like an old prehistoric bird and also a kite that looked like a movie car that came in 1st.

He told me he had a total of ten kites. If the strings or something else breaks on his kite he has a back up kite ready to fly. He started out with a small kite that resembled an Owl  and he fell in love with the hobby of flying kites.

I bet he wins this years competition because he pays attention to quality and top speed kites and it is his passion and part of who he is to rise to new heights every year of his life.

I and love and you canned cat food from Chewy.Com

I was provided I and love and you canned cat food from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I first gave the I and love and you Oh My Cod Recipe canned cat food to Maggie and her sister. Maggie kept head bumping me for more Cod canned cat food. Her sister would not let Maggie get anywhere near her serving of Cod.

The next day Maggie and her sister tried the Chicken Me Out Recipe made by I and love and you canned cat food from Chewy.Com. Both of them savored the flavor of the Chicken canned cat food  and it disappeared like magic. Maggie kept her sister away from her portion by extending her claws out towards her. She managed to get a large piece of the canned cat food away from her anyway.

I and love and you is made in the USA and is globally sourced. There formula is Grain free and is made with real meat, vegetables and fruit and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The wet cat food is balanced for all life stages.

Maggie and her sister ate up the I and love and you canned cat food Purky Turkey Recipe the second it was placed in front of them. They cleaned their plates to total purrfection.

Both of my outdoor cats loved eating the I and love and you canned cat food from Chewy.Com. The minute I opened the cans they were excited to see and taste what was in the can. The canned cat food smelled wonderful and fresh. The Chicken recipe smelled wonderful. The Turkey recipe smelled like a Thanksgiving  Day Dinner. The Cod reminded me of the smell of the Cod I had eaten the day before. A wonderful canned cat food Dinner for your Gourmet feline cat friends.

Being Left Handed In A Right Handed World

When I first went to school trying to find a left handed pair of scissors to work with was quite a challenge. School desk were made for right handed people also. The right handed students had a nice place to rest their elbows on the desk but I did not have that luxury.

My Grandfather thought me how to tie my shoes since he was left handed. We loop our shoe laces the opposite way around. He also thought me how to use a knife and peel vegetables.

When I made pottery in High School they had old fashioned kick wheels yet. Kick wheels can be easily used by left handed students as we just kick the wheel in the opposite direction. By the time I made pottery in college we had only two kick wheels and the others had motors that went in the wrong direction. An older gentleman told me all they had to do was mount the motor upside down and they would work perfectly for those of us that were left handed. We never had a motorized pottery wheel for the left handed students.

In sports left handed people need left handed golf clubs and catchers mitt and we hold the baseball bat differently also.

I tried to play a guitar in school but since it was a right handed guitar it did not go well. I found out years later that they now make a left handed guitar. The strings have to be mounted the opposite way around for us that are left handed.

Mechanics that are left handed have a challenge also as cars are made to be easily repaired by right handed people and an absolute nightmare for left handed mechanics to work on.

Carpentry tools are made backwards for left handed carpenters. I was lucky enough to find a left handed circular saw and what a wonderful find that was for me. Weed whackers throw the grass all over your pant legs and chain saws throw the wood chips all over your body when you are left handed.

I purchased a left handed watch that I love dearly. Left handed people wear their watch on their right wrist. Some vacuum cleaners are off balance because of how the bag or motor are mounted on them making it very hard to vacuum with being left handed.

I have learned over the years how to adapt to being left handed in a right handed world.

How To Wake Up Your Human If You Are A Cat

My name is Kohl and lay on my Mother’s pillow and meow away in her ear. I find my method of waking up my human very effective indeed. My human gets very annoyed with me when I give her my idea of a permanent in the morning. I need away at her hair and comb through it with my teeth. She gets her fill of my cat perm in a hurry and she gets out of bed and tends to all of my needs and desires. I demand fresh water in the morning. I simply stare and the water dish and she fills it with nice fresh water for me to drink ASAP. I have her trained purrfectly.

My name is Garfunkel and I lay closer and closer to my human Mother until she cannot stand the heat radiating from my little body any longer and she gets out bed. I have another method I use also as you always need a plan B. I lick and lick away at my humans hands and arms. She gets out of bed and cleans out our litter boxes and I make sure I am the first cat to use the cleaned out litter box in the morning. My human was very easy to train.

My name is Conrad and I sleep by my Mothers feet all night long. I am part Siamese so I let that part of me shine through in the morning. I call out to my human Mother in a shrill Siamese voice that could wake the dead in the morning and if she did not wake up with that I would have to call 911. I walk up by her face in the morning as I like it when she pats me on the head in the morning and she holds me close to her for a little while.

We love our human and we try to please her as much as she pleases us. We are fortunate to have each other and be in a loving and caring home. God Bless you humans for taking care of us and for letting us train you purrfectly.

Get It In Writing

You have to get contracts and agreements in writing today as the old fashioned handshake is a thing of the past.

I purchased a SUV at one time that was supposed to be AWD and a six cylinder engine. The SUV was four cylinder and FWD. I had a witness with me when I purchased the vehicle thank goodness. I had the sales manager sign a piece of paper saying they would make things right with me. The other people in the Co. did not know I had a signed letter from the sales manager and refused to do anything. As soon as I faxed them a copy of the signed letter they made things right after a two month wait. I ended up with a one year newer AWD drive SUV  but I still got the four cylinder engine. Without a witness or something in writing you do not have a leg to stand on.

I have friends that got a different color of vehicle than the one they purchased. I have a friend that purchased an air conditioner for his store but they did not hook it up to electricity. They told him he had to have his electrician hook it up. Anyone would think they would hook up an air conditioner when you purchased one. Why would you buy an air conditioner just to look at it day after day in the hot sweltering heat.

I was getting a loan at a bank one day and trying to read over the fine print. The banker said that is not important so I started to cross  that part of the contract off and all of a sudden it became very important. Be very proactive in all of your purchases. In God We Trust all others must sign a written agreement or contract.

Take The Road Less Traveled

Change can be a very scary thing in our lives. We get used to and feel very comfortable with our routines day after day. Sometimes God is calling us to make a very significant change in our lives and we are too busy to hear God calling us. Stop and examine your life now  and think to yourself can I be a better and more outstanding person in society.

Do not make fun of people just because other people are doing so. Take the road less traveled and remember you could be the one they are making fun of. Do not walk with the bullies in life walk the opposite direction. Do not let other people turn you into a pack of wolves that is waiting to devour someone. Defend the person the bullies are picking on as this is a true example of one of Gods good stewards.

Listen when God is calling upon you to do something that will better yourself and will help others immensely. God never ask more from you then what you can deliver. Be ready and willing to create a new and better you whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Be a more caring and compassionate individual. Help those who are in need. Listen to people that are lonely, afraid, downtrodden, sick, have lost a loved one, and that just need a caring person to talk to. Be a go to person for people.

Take some chances in life. Remember the old saying : Nothing ventured nothing gained. Look to the Bible for examples of what you can achieve in life even when all the odds are against you. Love God, family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. Some strangers are actually angels among us that are trying to teach us or led us in the right direction in life.

Remember God is always next to you even when you think you are all alone. Be one of Gods excellent shepherds today and always and never leave the flock alone to care for themselves.

Weruva Variety Pack Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com

I was provided Weruva Variety Pack Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I first gave Maggie and her sister a can of  Weruva Chicken Recipe in Pumpkin Consomme. There were nice sized shreds of chicken in the can of Weruva along with the pumpkin. Maggie and her sister made very short work of Weruva Chicken Recipe canned cat food.

My cats next door enjoyed Weruva Chicken Frick A Zee canned cat food. Russ and Hilford ate all of there portion. Another group of cats consisting of Faith, Sherlock, Nicole and Mr. Gray devoured there portion in record time. Addi and Cali enjoyed eating there portion all by themselves.

I gave Maggie and her sister Weruva Lamb Burini  and Maggie purred away loudly as she ate hers. Her sister ate hers up quickly so Maggie could not eat any of hers. Maggie thought hers was purrfectly good.



Maggie and her sister gulped down a can of Weruva Kitty Gone Wild with Salmon Recipe canned cat food. They ate up the the can of Weruva with gusto. My two outdoor cats loved the nicely sized pieces of salmon and the AU JUS  sauce that covered the salmon.

Attitude Adjustment

Proverbs   19 – 19

A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment : for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.

1 Peter 4 : 12 – 14

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you :

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings ; that, when his glory will be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye, for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you : on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

Some people need an attitude adjustment when they talk about sick people. I have heard people say that the person got the kind of illness he deserved in life. Christ suffered greatly for our sins and he certainly did not deserve the punishment that he was dealt. God does not punish his loved ones with horrible diseases it is just part of nature that eventually we get illnesses  and diseases that will eventually kill us.

I cannot stand it when people are so rude and impolite to people that are dying from a horrible illness. The person that has the disease is actually a wonderful, kind,caring and compassionate human being. People try to categorize people into neat little packages they  think they know how to unwrap and what makes that person the way they are.

Those of you without sin let you cast the first stone and as you already know no one is without sin. Diseases and illnesses come to us in all of our life’s stages. We did not ask for the disease or illness to stand out in the crowd we want to blend in with the crowd just as we did when we were teenagers.

Do not judge or make fun of ill or sick people you will be their yourself someday and probably a lot sooner then you ever imagined possible. Show the love of God to the sick and ill so they can find peace in this world before they pass on.
