Woodpeckers!!!
They drive me nuts every year!! :angry:
I have cedar siding and they love pecking holes in it for their lady friends.
In the last week they have put 7 new holes in the end of my house where 2 of our bedrooms are.
If I don't stop them the same day by blocking the hole then I end up with either bluebirds or woodpecker babies that I have to listen to in my bed every morning and night until they are
grown and fly away. :(
My latest method to stop them seems to be effective now that I am working from home do to the covid lock down stuff. When my wife or I hear them pecking a hole, I immediately get my
ladder up to where they are making the hole and I put a little of the sticky mouse trap goo around the area of the hole they are making. They usually never come back after they end up
leaving a feather stuck to the side of my house. :woohoo:
The carpenter bees also love making swiss cheese out of my siding every year. :ohmy:

Muchas gracias por sus cálidas bienvenidas! Ustedes, señoras de la ILK, se ven encantadoras como siempre! Y mis caballeros amigos! Muy guapo. Muy noble! Thank you so very much for your warm welcomes. You ladies of the ILK are looking lovely as ever! And my gentlemen friends? Very handsome. Very noble. I am very happy where I live now. I'm surrounded by quiet nature. Except for the morning as of late. Every morning, for the past 3 weeks, a group of male wood peckers do a dance and peck very rapidly on my fireplace chimney. I swear you would think it was a jack hammer. I figured out that they are dancing in the hopes of attracting a lady friend. It's that time of year. Now doesn't that sound familiar to human male behavior? Strut and dance around and then bang your head against something hard in the hopes of attracting...….. I'll quit while I'm somewhat ahead. And Little Brother? The "Head Honcho" of the forum!! I think you will fit the bill nicely Brandon.

Thank you for the lovely pictures Nan. I've been thinking about all of you these past month's with hopes that all were doing well and everyone was happy. Please know you've been in my thoughts and prayers. I think I will forgo commenting on the present mess we all find ourselves in. I just hope all of you stay healthy and maintain sanity in an insane situation. But if I run out of pinto beans and green chile I'm going to be upset vis a vis "hoarding"! As Forrest Gump would say: "That's all I have to say about that".

Have a wonderful evening everyone! It's such a genuine pleasure for me to see you all again! Let's all collectively hope that things will work out alright. I think that's the best we can do. I will be hoping and praying for everything to work out well for everybody. And thank you again for the very warm welcome back. You all are very dear souls.

In all things be blessed,

Robie

But who could have predicted a run on toilet paper?

Simple control the message media tactic you have a video I think in Australia making the rounds, Older lady fighting with a family over toilet paper . Now the shelves are cleaned out.
My backup was always have a good supply of tissues. Run out of hand sanitizer buy rubbing alcohol, but the public caught on to that one Rite AId has none left.

Preppers look less weird today lol. I am only let down by my push back to not go full out so I wasn't the crazy prepper lady I can live off supplies for two, three months I hope to god its not necessary.


ROBIE!!! :x :x :-h :-h
I am all smiles to hear from you! I hope you are well and taking care. Eat good food and get out in nature. People in my neighborhood are staying inside. I go out for fresh air taking pictures of the first of spring flowering. My tip is use a wired connection for the internet. Reduce or turn off wifi tech stuff. (might create my "theory" topic soon -going down the rabbit hole and back out)
Stay healthy!

OMG! This thread has some of my ILK all time faves! A few missing, of course. Y’all know who you are ;-)

There are two people AT LEAST posting here with past and present lung conditions and I expect y’all to take more extreme measures to self quarantine. We cannot spare any of you. Please do your best to stay away from the idiots here who think it’s a spring holiday and are crowding the beaches with hoards of substances to help make them more unruly. Nature has a way of taking out the foolish..

Littlebear3, I am a long time TP hoarder. I cut back on it because my Mom gets annoyed at my stockpiling ANYTHING except her Starbucks Frappuccino’s. “Got it. Got it. Got it.” from the Big Bang Theory around season 2 at the comic book store...
I’m down to less than half my TP stash, so I admit to looking at online ordering...only opportunities to be taken for a fool there,..DEFINITELY uncomfortable with only about 6 pkgs left :-o

We are two WOMEN. It takes more. Well, when men visit, I have to use TP on the seat, bowl AND floor with some of them. Never mind. We all use that stuff. But I got a bunch of facial tissue. The big threat here is people are flushing every unflushable thing they have....SomethingSacred, have you seen an increase in “oops, I flushed a t shirt” calls?

While we’re on the topic, apparently some jerks are selling “coronavirus” and “covid-19“ test kits online. FAKE FAKE FAKE

Where is Babel-17? Shoot, I hope he’s not sick! I bet he has the virus cure in his possession!

Thanks Nan70,

I looked at that video....interesting points....
The Corona Virus...... is NOT new... just this strain of the virus is new, but the Corona Virus had been in the world and the United States since the 1960's.

I agree with the caution, but not the panic that's being produced by today's media and Government.

My own other thoughts....

What could really hurt small businesses.... almost more than most anything else. A sudden stop for a period of time that is yet undetermined...
This could do a lot of damage.... all across America and the world....

Small businesses make up 80% of our nations economy....what if that's damaged.... whats left

I am not trying to put ANY bad stuff out there, but there's usually more going on than what we are told.

Have a beautiful weekend Nan70 and Everyone else.....
Enjoy Life

We are staying Open, both of our sites.... as long as mail keeps going.

I suspect that this will change many attitudes. It is exposing how fragile our country really is. Every health care professional has been aware of pandemic potential for decades. Yet here we are. Some governors are showing leadership. The federal government is bungling badly. I am thankful for my prepper instincts. It comes from reading all those sci fi distopian novels, and watching the walking dead. But who could have predicted a run on toilet paper?

I could see hoarding food, but toilet paper?

I am 70 with asthma, and I had pneumonia a few months ago. This virus could easily kill me, so I am on the concerned side. I am taking care of myself, but I wonder about the parents and grand parents of those fools doing spring break in Florida.
