Bad Day - Storm - Squirrel - Destruction » Post #5

Cats are hunters,that is why mine is a house cat. Too bad about the squirell.

I did a search for that owl...holy crap that is a big one.

Yes! The Great Horned Owl has an appropriate name.

About ten years ago I was sitting out back when I saw something standing in the flower garden up
on the hill. It looked like a log at first. I grabbed the binoculars and saw that it was moving and
then it turned it's head as to look right at me. I saw what it was and shocked to see it standing on
the ground. I walked towards it and when I got a few yards from it, it flew in a tree. I then proceeded
to shoo it and it was flying from tree to tree. It finally flew out of sight.

It was extremely odd and I would say rather rare, to see one standing on the ground like that. They
normally stay at the edge limbs in trees. When they see food, they will swoop down and grab it and
take it back to their nest.

I know they got to eat like everything else but I don't like them on my property. They are known to
kill cats and even small dogs.

It is not a good day here. Last night the storm came in and it was so bad that school was called off
here. The wind was so loud, I was afraid to open the door.

Although it is stil windy here, it has died down. We had something like 100 mile an hour winds.

I had a little iron patio set at one of end of the front porch, the table did not move an inch. The
chairs were turned over and one was stuck inside the other. I finally got those apart but it did leave
some scratches on one of the chairs.

One of the tall trees in my front yard went down so now I have a big mess in the yard.

An iron bench I have in a garden area in the back yard blew over and scratched it in several places.

There's some tree tops scattered about the places.

I looked out a back door onto the patio and Mr KiKi had a big squirrel. I went out with a broom and
he dropped the squirrel. The poor thing was blinking it's eyes, breathing hard but I couldn't see a bad
place on it. I got a dust pan and scooped it up, took it down by a tree, hoping it would go up the tree.
After more inspection, I saw it was injured beyond help. I had to kill it.

Some times I hate cats.

I need to get some new collars but so difficult to find the ones that are NOT breakaway collars. I put
big Christmas bells on the collars. IF I had them on the cats, that squirrel probably would have gotten

To top all that off, I have been looking for Miss Cookie for a month or more now. I have a strong feeling
a Great Horned Owl got her. I even put out a $100 reward for her. No one has come forward. For some
days I was hearing that owl at night, even waking me up as it was mighty loud. I have not heard it since
she disappeared.

I am NOT happy today.

I think it's lame.

Kind of like during prohibition. If you were caught with a bottle, you would say it was for 'medicinal' reasons.
'Just let me have one more big swig of that whiskey before you haul my butt to jail, please, I need it for my heart.'

They should just sell it in a store beside the liquor instead of allowing government and pharmacies to control it.

People are so lame.

I am not sure why the watermelon do that. I didn't have very many but the ones I had were round
and continued to grow and then it was like someone let the air out of them.....they went POOF, and
turned black.

I do wish I had paid attention to my family growing up. After they retired to the south, my grandfather
put out most everything you can think of. Of course, he had grown up in the south, country and was
a farm boy by nature. When they retired, bought a farm, he planted fruit trees, primarily apple. He
also planted a large strawberry patch. We had potatoes too. There was a small shed out back and I
hated when they told me to go get some potatoes. I was a city girl and when I would open the shed
door, potatoes would roll out and scare me like my thinking was 'snake'. They canned and froze veggies,
primarily green beans, tomatoes, corn, okra, strawberries. They also made/canned watermelon jelly.

I've got to do a search today to see if I am suppose to put some sort of insecticide in the grown. I
wouldn't think so but last year those big ugly green tomato worms ate most my tomato crop.

No, Amazon does not accept PayPal transactions.

Amazon does take credit cards and debit cards. I think they also accept checks but not real sure about that.

It is and everyone should do it.

They also held events that was very fun and funny too. Such as wheel chair races for those that
are not wheelchair confined against those that are wheelchair confined. Lots of laughs and lots
of fun plus a great learning experience.

I will tell you that eating, is probably the easiest thing to do if you are blind. It's not difficult but
if you are not blind and not in a routine, you can certainly make a bit of a mess.

People that are blind, need to have everything in it's place. For example a drinking glass is always
on the preferred position side of the plate. If it's moved, an accident can happen.

We also had a day on campus when we had to be led around by a partner for an hour and then
switch up for the second hour. I did about bust my butt on that one going up concrete steps.

I had to do that when I was going for my bachelors degree in Rehabilitation.
The professor of Rehab at that university is blind.

His classes consisted of a lot of physical activity.

One day we had to use wheelchairs all day on campus. That was a big chore.

There was a day we all had to eat blindfolded. We were all given bibs first. :)

We had some fun activities like those but also many boring ones such as measuring doors, bathrooms, etc.

What's the last movie or TV show you saw? » Post #77

Sun Apr 02, 2017 11:23 in General Talk

I watched a couple of older movies last night. On Amazon I had picked out a couple of
the movies to watch without thinking their scenarios were a bit similar.

Both movies are about several guys and gals that go camping.
Both movies involved a motor camper.
One of the movies surprisedly went from camping to zombies.
One of the movies went to alien abduction.

They both were a good way for me to talk to the tv.....

You are so stupid!
Why you wear shorts in the woods!
You are an idiot!
Don't you take a weapon in the woods!
Why not get the heck out of there!
Go get the keys and leave!
Forget him, just start it up and go!
Closing the camper blinds is not going to stop the aliens!
He has a knife in his back, why you laying him on his back!
Are you outta your mind!
Who wrote this junk!

PS. One of the movies was 'Night Skies'

Ok I am going to make one last comment in this topic. I think. :mrgreen:

I hope I make myself clear enough. ALL online payment processors suck. All of them. There is a lot of
stuff in business that sucks. It is a dog eat dog world and online, there is only so far you can go and so
much you can do.

I am strongly stressing to go with PayPal because it is a BUSINESS decision, NOT a PERSONAL decision.
I'm in the USA. I cash out by check. I have no problems cashing out by check. I have cashed out by
check half the time I have been here, if not more.

WHY EXACTLY PayPal cut off ClixSense, I can only guess but my guesses are not unfounded totally.

1. PayPal Quota: Every year or every quarter it seems PayPal staff need to meet a shut off quota.

2. Unlike Google that won't tell you anything at all, PayPal does often throw hints. PayPal does need
to abide by their own policies. Allowing even big players to seep thru the cracks is not good for PayPal

3. So when PayPal tells CS to remove the PTC end, that is a mighty big hint to say the least. For starters
the ClixGrid is too much like a lottery. What you have done Jim in this regard is tell members if they
upgrade, they'll get more chances to play. It's a double whammy. In PayPal's eyes, it's gambling.

4. ClixSense stresses the PTC model. PayPal obviously does not like this and here again, it is not a
personal thing, it is a business thing and PayPal needs to abide as closely as they can by their own

Bottomline, change how advertising operates here. PayPal will take you back. Everyone will earn
as usual, and everyone will be happy.

Termites in the dirt? You might want to call a termite guy to come out and spray before they
get to your house. They put these things in the ground now that prevents them even coming
close to your house.

A veggie garden is work but for me, it is enjoyable work and not a lot of work. I don't put out
a huge garden. It won't take long to til it with the garden tiller and that is always the most work
for me, just preparing the ground. I bought some bags of garden dirt for a veggie garden, that
I am going to mix in this year.

Also this year I am going to plant one tomato plant in a huge planter on my balcony. Might be
fun to see how that does.

I say forget about Paypal.
If it makes sense to add the Mobile and Apps, or something else to add up our and your revenue , this sounds good .
At least when we click a ptc ad we 99.99 % know that we will be paid by it .
Unlike the survey that can kick you out after even 10 to 15 minutes of clicking and inputting info .
( They don't like male seniors from Canada )

I don't understand your comment at all. There is not one payment processor online that I like. None.


I won't say that I don't care because there are a lot of members that really like ClixSense and hope to
keep earning with it for many years to come.

BUT I don't think there are enough members posting here that realize how business works.

It's not about what I think. It's really not even about what you think. It's about how business works
and the online businesses that have to work with each other in order to be sustainable.

There is nothing wrong with advertising so I don't know why you address me like I think there is.
My gosh, if anyone has done much advertising online, it is me. I have spent well over a hundred
grand online in advertising. Maybe double that or more.

It is extremely rare for anyone here to make $100 a month from viewing ads alone. For awhile,
there was a couple of big advertisers targeted to USA members. A USA member could literally
click 1,000 ads, maybe more per 24 hours. During that time frame, I think I may have clicked
800 ads and I thought I was going to die before I finished. I did the math on it once but I don't
recall the numbers. I can just tell you that it would take probably 10 hours or more to view 1,000
ads. I can't recall if those were 15 second or 30 second ads. If you spend all day viewing ads and
you make $5 per day doing so, that is $150 per month. Personally I'd rather take a whooping then
spend ten hours or more every day clicking ads. Thats beside the point. The point is, it is rare,
has only been a big advertiser for short periods of times, in ten years.....and even then it was for
USA members only.

I just wish members here that keep calling out my name such as you AJmoss and doing your best
to say things I did not say, would use your brain to post some ideas and help. I never 'disparged'
ads. :lol: You have not even been here one year and you are so eager to beat me up and put
words in my mouth. I prefer to have someone that has been a long time member beat me up.

I went to Walmart and Lowes yesterday and loaded up on dirt, flowers, etc.

I'm going to expand my veggie garden a bit this year.

This year I ordered the EarthWise tiller. It is inexpensive, electric, but will easily work in my garden.

Primarily I plant tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, squash, and a few watermelon.
Last year I also planted green beans and those did very well.

Today I filled two 20 inch pots on my front porch with dirt and planted red impatients in those.
Also I planted some multi-color zinnia's in some areas.

Its a beautiful day here, finally.

Do you plant flowers and/or veggie garden?
