Our front yard seemed extra busy today and at one point I counted 4 male Cardinals. Our temperatures are dropping way down overnight and maybe the birds sense that and are stocking up on extra food. Squirrels seemed extra food crazy this afternoon as well. Our temps at time of posting tonight are 14F and dropping:((

::An Archive Post:: It was March 7th 2011 when we found ourselves in California's Joshua Tree National Park. Not a place you can see and experience in a day but we gave it a try anyway. Here's my post.... Joshua Tree - 'WOW'
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Mr. Jones is driving past the state mental hospital when his left rear tire suffers a flat. While he is changing the tire, another car goes by, running over the hub cap in which he was keeping the lug nuts. The nuts are all knocked into a nearby storm drain. He is at a loss for what to do and is about to go call a cab when he hears a shout from behind the hospital fence, where one of the inmates has been watching the whole thing. "Hey, pal! Why don't you just take one lug nut off each of the other three wheels and use them to replace the missing ones? That'll hold your tires on until you can get to a garage or something." Mr. Jones is startled by the patient's seeming rationality, but realizes the plan will work, and installs the spare tire without incident. Before he leaves, he calls back to the patient. "You know, that was pretty sharp thinking. Why do they have you in there?" The patient smiles and says, "I'm in here because I'm crazy, not because I'm stupid."
