OK I remember my brother telling us when he (IZ) had died & sent photos from Oahu (he, my brother) was living there at the time)

The music he (my brother) has is recordings of a few groups of Hawaiian men who started singing down at the docks where he worked.

My brother reported that at any given moment, the men would stop working & sing for quite  awhile, attracting others & soon no work was getting done, and nothing could be done about it but stop & listen to their wonderful music.

I will ask him the group's name.

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful day jumpy.gif

 

 

 

Glad you didn't lose to many chicks. I love the baby chicks and am so jealous right now. I should hopefully have two or three for Valentines day. None of the rock X silkie eggs I gave the silkie were fertile so she has two silkie eggs and an EE x silkie egg I can't see in. And the other silkie is broody again, too! arrgh! That one just got off broody the week after christmas since I didn't give her any eggs. I wish they would wait for warmer weather, but hopefully I can find some chicks to give her. She accepts all chicks and feeds them.

Well, Bacchus is out in the orchard again, although getting him through the gate caused trepidation; I tried to pull one of the branches down and it turns out that there's a U shaped break and two branches hanging down on either side of another, still attached, branch he.gif So: no way to take it down without an orchard ladder and a skilled chainsaw operator.

So, after I take oatmeal down to the young BLRWs and peanuts to the elder ones, I'll take the loppers and at least take out the little twiggy bits that are whacking me in the face and making the branches swing to the tune of "You're going to dieeee-eeee..."

Jake Shimabukuro ... what he does with a ukulele is startling --- not necessarily ethnic !!!

one way to get those higher "widow maker" branches down ---

tie a light string to a tennis ball
co-opt one of those kids who thinks he/she is a terrific pitcher or passer
throw the string-laden ball up and over the branch you want down (retaining the other end of the string securely on ground or tied to fence of course)
remove ball from string after it's on the ground (or reachable) on the other side
tie a sturdy rope to the string, and pull the rope up and over the branch until you have both ends reachable, on either side of that branch

then pull both ends of that rope, sideways, well away from where the branch will fall ...

alternatively, tie a loop on one end of the rope, pass the other end through, snug the loop up to the offending branch, and pull

if you don't have a suitable thrower --- but you do have a bow and arrow -- tie the string to the arrow ..

have used this method many times to get widow makers out of our trees, both the firs and the oaks

This, for FlyRobinFly:

 

Is this enough, or ya want more ?

Sorry my older OEs just are not laying very often, but the younger onees are.

Two flavours OE shown here, one Marans (a dark brown egg layer)xAmeracauna (the dark olive egg) and the many light green eggs are  Rock (a light brown layer) x Ameracauna, producing a lighter green egg.

I love OEs !

Oh and the dark brown are your BCM pullet, the light brown /speckled are Rocks.
