    Anyone here feed birds? I have a bird feeder hanging on a tree in front of my house. I enjoy seeing bird eating food from my feeder. It's cheap to maintain as bird food costs only about $1 a day. I feel good knowing the birds are not hungry during the cold winter where food is hard to find.

    What do you do about the squirrels?

    When I was young I enjoyed watching a squirrel family living under the eves of the neighbor's house. They climbed a telephone to the third story, and then jumped onto the eves where they created a hole by chewing through the wood.

    Now I don't appreciate them as much.

    Squirrels share the food with the birds. I would say the birds eat about 2/3 of the food while the squirrels eat about 1/3. There are way more birds than squirrels but each squirrel eat way more than a bird. I think squirrels are cute. The birds are not afraid of the squirrels. Sometimes, they eat the food together at the same time. I don't know why some people are against the squirrels. They told me that I should hang the bird feeder properly so that the squirrels won't be able to eat the food. I told them squirrels are animal too and it's good to feed the squirrels as well. I make sure there is always food in the feeder. Both the birds and squirrels that eating food from the feeder are getting chubby. I guess they stay nearby as they know there are food for them. I guess they are the same ones that eating the food daily. I love how the squirrels climb the tree, jump from one branch to the other. They are like people in wuxia

    In life, not everything can be measured in dollars and cents.

    As fun as the tree rats with the bushy tails are to watch, they can do quite a bit of damage if left unchecked. I had squirrels chew through the cable from Comcast multiple times -don't know why it was so attractive to them. Later I finally switched to Fios. I guess the fiber optic cables aren't as tasty or maybe they're just better concealed.

    hmm, put on 2.4 kg in one month. Maybe it's the weighing machine.

    Probably it is, but then it may not also. You may gain muscle mass instead. I gained a pound from just this week!!! Sad...time to work extra hard from eating too darn good food this week. Back to disciplining my mind and body.

    Yeah, I love the bushy tail. So far they didn't do any damage to us yet . I enjoy feeding the animals during winter when food is hard to find.

    My office just announced that it will be closed tomorrow -which almost never happens.

    It's been quite a while since we had 2 feet of snow. Maybe I'll make a cave in a snow bank tomorrow. Used to love to do that and place a tea light so it sinks into the wall, and light it up from within making the entire wall glow.
