My Little Bird

I was looking at my flowers while on my front porch. First I went to look over the railing closest to my neighbor’s. Then I went over to the other side of the porch I was looking down into the shrubs when I saw this little bird. I wanted so much to get a picture of him, but was afraid if I moved he would fly away. Taking that risk I went in to get my camera that was beside my computer. When I went outside to my surprise he was still there. The camera flashed when I took the picture. I thought for sure he would fly away then but he didn't. So I took another picture of him and his eyes were squinted. I decided I would give the little birdie a break and didn't take any more pictures.

I looked, but couldn't find a nest. I think he was trying to stay out of the weather. It was slightly raining.

I love this sweet picture. Look for it on my facebook fan page at:

Your comment are always loved so I hope you will leave one.

Disney Toy Story 3 on Ice

We went to see Disney Toy Story 3 on Ice over the weekend. It was such a good show. It was dark in there so my pictures are not worth a flip, but I will post a few anyway. I went with my daughter, two grandchildren, and my sister-in-law and nephew. Of course the tickets were expensive, and there was no special prices for the kids. Cotton candy was $12.00 a piece. Popcorn was $4.00 a bucket. I'm not sure how much the drinks were, but we got 6 of them.

This lively group started the show.

Of course Woody and Jessie were there.

 Along with Buzz Lightyear.

Then the soldiers came out.

Then Barbies...

There was so much more to this show than what I have blogged.
Everything was so well choreographed.  It was truly an amazing show.
We all had so much fun!

Why Do We Have Leap Year?

Chaos, basically, without Feb. 29. Thank goodness for Julius Caesar, Pope Gregory XIII, and leap years to keep our calendar from misbehaving.
"If we didn't have leap years, our calendar would be totally scrambled," says Geoff Chester of the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., the nation's timekeepers. "Otherwise, the year would be totally out of sync with the seasons."
Why? Basically the Earth doesn't circle the sun in exactly 365 days. Rather, it takes 365.2425 days, instead of a nice round number, says physicist Dennis Duke of Florida State University in Tallahassee. Those extra digits add up to almost a full day, but not quite, every four years.
Since the Roman ruler Caesar first added a leap day to the calendar every four years around 46 B.C., "with some help from astronomers," Duke says, roughly 500 leap days have come and gone.
That still wasn't perfect, because the Julian calendar was adding too many days.
"By the 1500s, Easter was slipping back into winter, about 10 days off," says John Lowe of the federal National Institute of Standards and Technology's office in Boulder, Colo. So, the modern calendar used today dates to 1582, when Pope Gregory XIII instituted the Gregorian calendar, with its first leap year of 1584.
Under its rules, every year that is evenly divided by 4 is a leap year, except for turn-of-the-century ones ending with an "00" such as 1900 or 2100, that aren't divisible by 400.
"Without this extra adjustment, the seasons would gradually slip out of adjustment with the calendar," Duke says. "But at a pretty slow rate — about eight days every 1,000 years."
Today, about 5 million people worldwide share a Feb. 29 birth date, making them "leapsters" or "29ers," according to the Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies.
"It's nice to be really different," says Bailey Cox of Merritt Island, Fla., who will be 2 or 8 today, depending on how you see things.
Either way, she'll be bringing cupcakes today to her classmates at Lewis Carroll Elementary School in her hometown.

Happy Valentine's Day

So far I have had the greatest day!

This morning I went to my granddaughters Valentine's Day party at her school. There were about twenty 4 & 5 year olds.

A couple of weeks ago she brought home two red paper hearts. Her assignment was to write on each card something that she did as a random act of kindness. One of her hearts said that she called her great grandmother almost every day. The other one was that she is very helpful around the house and loves doing the laundry. This is what they did with them.

Their room was decorated everywhere with hearts, balloons, streamers, you name it.

I took so many pictures, and couldn't figure out why they all looked so blurry. Half way through the party I realized that the kids had been playing with my camera and there were finger prints all over the lens.
None the less, we had a great time.

What's Blooming?

I love to garden, but since I was sick for a year I have not been able to get back into it like I would like. Everything needs fertilizer, and I need to replant lots of things. Hopefully I will get some of this done for spring.

I am most proud of my Orchid tree since I planted this from a seed. Too many of the leaves have brown on them, and there would be more flowers on it if I had fertilized it. This is not in full bloom. There are still lots of buds coming out on this tree.

This is what the flowers look like up close.

This is one of my baby rose bushes.

Poinsettias are still blooming!

Here are some of the Azaleas.

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my flowers. I would love your comments.

Sea World Orlando

My daughter, grandson 8, granddaughter 4, & I went to Sea World. We left on Friday and spent the afternoon. Then we stayed the night in Orlando, FL, and went back on Saturday.

One of the first things we did was see the dolphins.

We saw some flamingos. They are born white and gradually get their color. They also get some of their color from food such as shrimp. They stand on one leg to keep warm. Where you think their knee should be is actually their ankle. Their knee is up high.

We went down through the tunnel to see the sharks. For some reason my grandson is afraid of lots of things, and he was not at all happy about going in the tunnel. Of course, after it was over he wanted to go it again.
This is a picture of a shark that swam right by us.
This one was swimming right toward me. Yikes!!!

 The kids were amazed at how large a walrus is.
Of course it wouldn't be a trip to Sea World without seeing Shamu.
And of course they like to show off.

It is amazing how well trained these whales are. Even my grandson commented on how well the trainers did.
Can you even imagine these huge creatures flying and flipping out of the water like this?

To finish off our trip they had a special show of Max and Ruby. This was one of my granddaughters favorites!

If you enjoyed this I would sure appreciate some comments. If you have a business link you can get a back link by doing this that helps your business in the search engines. You can also leave an anonymous comment if you like.
