    The Return of the Dodo Bird!

    I thought python attacks against humans were rare. Though I guess these animals when out of their natural habitats have often proven more dangerous. I know dodos went artificially extinct due to over-hunting by greedy people, but the world is so very much different than it was several hundred...

    The Return of the Dodo Bird!

    I had heard of the pythons in the Everglades but I didn't realize it was that serious already. People really need to think twice before getting these exotic pets. As I get more into watching fishkeeping blogs I am hearing that this is an issue with people getting "monster fish" and they can't...

    The Return of the Dodo Bird!

    While they're at it, can't they geo-engineer them to look like the dodo birds on Looney Tunes?

    Pentagon Tracking Suspected Chinese Spy Balloon Over the US

    I really don't care about this balloon. I assume countries are spying on each other all the time. Calling attention to it just feels like a distraction. I don't know. I just have a hard time caring anymore. I'm basically following the story for the Babylon Bee articles.

    Bon appetit? .... yum! What's on your menu?

    Ramen noodles with sliced hot dogs and vegetables. LOL We really live it up over here. We did have homemade banana bread for dessert.

    What are ya doin' today?

    Every February 2nd, my husband and I watch the Bill Murray movie "Groundhog Day". This year, we decided to watch it with the kids. There were two heavy kissing scenes we skipped but the kids enjoyed the movie overall. My son thought the idea of doing whatever you wanted without consequences was...

    Pentagon Tracking Suspected Chinese Spy Balloon Over the US

    The balloon thing feels like a distraction. The media is playing it up too much.

    What are ya doin' today?

    My little tank project with daughter for her 5 gallon went well. My daughter has a short attention span but she was a good helper. I don't let her watch a lot of YouTube but she was narrating the whole procedure as if she was making a "how to" blog. I am proud of the work we did together and...

    Pentagon Tracking Suspected Chinese Spy Balloon Over the US

    Guys, relax! It's just the new egg roll delivery system! Now we can get real Chinese food delivered to our front doors. So very kind of them. That thing flew over Canada and nobody noticed. At least you guys saw it. Chinese police stations are operating here too. No one is doing anything...

    Bon appetit? .... yum! What's on your menu?

    I definitely know the power of cheese. It really is like a drug. I got hooked on the stronger cheddars while pregnant with my youngest -- it soothed my morning sickness. But my stomach, while not hurting, was singing quite the baritone after supper...even with taking lactaid pills beforehand...

    Bon appetit? .... yum! What's on your menu?

    Homemade pizza. Cheddar cheese doesn't bother me too much so I just ate it with cheese. I wouldn't do it every day.

    How is the weather in your area NOW??

    Even with the heat on it's so COLD in this house. The kids are downstairs using the TV without a fire going. I feel pretty guilty now that I think of it. They're probably sitting under layers of blankets and they don't complain. But they always come up with icy-cold fingers. They're still...

    What are ya doin' today?

    I don't deal with passive aggressive stuff very graciously. I am grateful a province separates me from some of my husband's family because it's easier to bite your tongue for a short duration rather than all the time. My family is far more blunt with one another. It keeps the peace though we...

    Happy Groundhog Day!

    My husband and I watch the movie every year. I wonder what our groundhog up here said? They use a puppet now because it's "cruel" to animals. Oh no! An animal is held for 5 seconds a year. So terrible.

    McCaul: Chances of China-Taiwan Conflict ‘Very High’ if Biden Continues to Project ‘Weakness’

    But wouldn't Taiwan suffer from the radiation fallout? I do think Taiwan is the real China anyways as that is where their leaders fled when Mao did his brutal takeover, if I recall correctly. I'm rather fuzzy on Chinese history and only did a brief overview with the kids during homeschool. I...

    How is the weather in your area NOW??

    Every single region in Manitoba is under an Extreme Cold Warning. Tomorrow it is supposed to get to -35C with the windchill.

    Dr. John Morris [Institute for Creation Research] Is at Home with His Lord

    I am so grateful for the various ministries that want to give us confidence to trust God's Word and not to pretzel our theology to make it 'acceptable' to the world. The Bible says 7 days so we can trust that! I don't think I've heard of this specific ministry before but sounds like he did a...

    Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz Signs "PRO Act" Protecting Abortion Access Into Law

    This mania to kill the unborn is a symptom of the spiritual battle. It really has that religious zeal about it.

    What are ya doin' today?

    I only caught a bit of that the other day. I think it was the part with Barry Stagner. All the other times I tuned in it was always just as the speaker was doing the closing prayer and I wasn't patient enough to wait around during the "in-between" for the next one. My attention span has been...

    What are ya doin' today?

    I have to be careful not to kill the good/beneficial bacteria that converts fish waste into something that is less toxic to the fish. I wiped down all the hardware including all hoses and filters except for the media in the filter and the gravel I left though I did vacuum it thoroughly. The...
