I finally got around to watching The Last of the Mohicans (1992).
It was good.

Yes, I'm a little behind with my movie watching.

I really don't know much about bees. Not enough to answer your
question, for sure. If you do find an answer, or if you see any other
strange behavior, please let us know.

I remember discussing bees with anniet, but I don't recall suggesting
she carry around sugar water! Although it's a great idea if it helps.
I don't see many bees lying around, myself.

An 84-year-old man is sitting on a park bench, sobbing, when a young man walks by and asks him what's wrong. Through his tears, the old man answers, "I'm in love with a 22-year-old woman."

"Well, what's wrong with that?" asks the young man. Between his sobs and sniffles, he answers, "You don't understand, every morning before she goes to work, we make love. At lunch time, she comes home and we make love again, and then she makes my favourite meal. In the afternoon when she get...s a break, she rushes home and gives me the best time an old man could want. And then at supper time, and all night long, we make love.”

He breaks down, no longer able to speak. The young man puts his arm around him. "I don't understand. It sounds like you have the perfect relationship! Why are you sitting here on this park bench crying?"

The senile old man answers, again through his tears: "I can't remember where I live!"

A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

'Have you ever done anything of particular merit?', St. Peter asked.

'Well, I can think of one thing,' the cowboy offered.

'On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota , I came upon a gang of bikers who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So, I approached the largest and most tattooed biker and smacked him in the face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, 'Now, back off or I'll kick the s _ _ t out of all of you!'

St. Peter was impressed, 'When did this happen?'

'Couple of minutes ago.’

Re. seat belts: I had a 1965 Chevy Chevelle Malibu (that's what they were called back then)
that had seat belts. It was 1970 when I got the car. (I wore my seat belts every time I drove,
even though I didn't "have to.")

LOL:)
One sad story though.
Our dog found a dead magpie chicken lying in a bush under a tree just a few days ago.
Probably a chicken that didn't learnt to fly.
It's still there but now lying just outside our balcony...
Good news is that one of it's sibling is still around.


In English we say "chick" for baby bird, not "chicken." A chicken
is a special type of bird. We eat them.

Chicken:

Very sad about the dead magpie chick. One of my cats came in with
a bluejay chick. It was alive and the parents were screaming. I took it
out and put it on my roof. I have no idea what happened after that.

By the way, a "fledgling" is a young bird that is just old enough to leave
the nest and try to fly. This is what your dog and my cat would have
had.

I hope you don't mind the English lessons!

I really enjoyed the TV show Longmire while it was on cable TV. It went
away and showed up again on Netflix. I'm just now finally getting back to it
by watching season 4. There are six seasons, total, and it has now been
cancelled. :-(

A man died and went to heaven.
As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, "What are all those clocks?"

St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie clocks.
Everyone on earth has a lie-clock. Every time you lie the hands on the clock will move"

"Oh" said the man, "Whose clock is that?"
"That's Mother Teresa's".
The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie."
"Incredible, " said the man.

"That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe only told two lies in his entire life."

"Where's Trump's clock?"

"His clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

Solaris, and I don't understand why it received such high ratings.

You mean this?
Solaris (Russian: Солярис) is a 1972 film directed by Andrej Tarkovsky, based on Stanisław Lem's novel Solaris from 1961.
Solaris is a meditative psychodrama that takes place on a spacecraft in orbit around a planet called Solaris. The scientific work on space station has ended in a crisis. Psychologist Kris Kelvin travels to the station to evaluate and investigate the situation, but is soon haunted by the same type of hallucinations that have affected the other crew members.
Solaris became a great success. The film was presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 1972 and won the Prix du Jury, the FIPRESCI Prize and nominated for the Golden Palm.


No. The 2002 version.

Google says tailless squirrels are quite common and that it's almost definitely due to an attack by a predator.
As far as anyone knows, squirrels are never born without a tail.

I'm not so sure about that.
Both cats and squirrels usually have tails.
But not all of them.
I have met some cats without a tail.
And they was definitely not due to an attack by a predator.

I didn't say anything about cats.

Nice one. I have all episodes on my media player, can you remind me what episode that was from please.


If you're talking to me --- I have no idea! Sorry.

I would guess, though, that it's from the first season. Also, that looks
like Jimmy with the Doctor, so it would be after he joined the show.

I think it's nice to have an easily-identifiable creature in your yard. And I like your pix of Bobbie.

I don't know if it's the same bird, but there is now a nest on top of the roll-up awning over my front picture window. It hasn't been rolled in or out in about 30 years, so I don't care about that.

I saw a news item the other day about a woman who can't use her front door because robins are aggressively defending the nest they built on her Christmas wreath. She says next year she'll take down the wreath sooner.


Where does she live? Southern Florida? Or did she leave the wreath up until May?
Because I don't see robins making nests during the time a Christmas wreath would
be up.
