Just got back from getting a few groceries. The weather is rainy, but it's not as cold as it has been, thank goodness!

The worst offenders are on PBS and the English Masterpiece series. My first husband was a Scotsman and I could understand his very heavy brogue easily. But some of the actors on these series I swear just mumble to annoy me. Turning the sound up doesn't help at all. All I get is very loud mumbling.

Just thought I would let you know I think I found the recipe for fudge my mother made. I guess the recipe was on Hershey's Cocoa container many years ago. I read some of the reviews and it sure sounds like this is it. I am going to give it a try.

You just reminded me...I have to pick up some molasses. I love a piece of cornbread, buttered and with molasses on it.

Regarding beavers and the color brown: for those of you who have not yet seen a real living beaver, this young one one was up on our property two years ago, on March 30th, checking out a few tasty young trees. Twas a rare sighting, and I managed to get close for a pic.

as were these two lovelies.



When you live on a wilderness pond, many many life forms visit. For them, survival is a wild pond in an undeveloped forest. I just love living here.

When my youngest son lived in Vermont, at dusk every day he would see the deer come on his property. In the winter he would put out a salt lick for them. They were cutting across on their way to the water a little further down from his property. Nothing can beat Mother Nature.

We aren't getting the wildlife around the facility that we have had in the past. So much construction going on around the hospital, they have picked a different route through to the river. I'll have to go for a walk up on Campus to see the deer. Besides, the weather has not been cooperating and I bet they are finding enough to eat without coming into town this year.
