While I am a fringe baseball fan but...

This subject came up and never knew how to read the box. Figured I would pass it along to the long timers as well as the newbies and everybody in...

    Rest in Peace "Possum"

    It is a sad day in country music as icon George Jones has passed. While his heyday was when I was a child and was my "mothers country" I found myself listening to his music and knowing most of the words and songs recalled from my youth of hours of my mothers listening. On a 33LP of all things...

    3 plus years in, first loss to a predator

    Well last night went to close in my larger group for the night and one of the girls was standing on the roost squawking away and I was wondering what was up with her.

    Bill Clinton ....Father of the What????

    Why not Husband of the Century too. There are so many more deserving people than this egocentric fool. Just don't see it. With the way he treated women he should never even been considered. And in other news Hannibal Lechter voted most "Most Dedicated Vegan"

    Do they just get tired and die?

    I had a BR that was 2 1/2 years old that went from perfectly fine(seemed to be) to dead inside of 3 days. On Thursday she was doing regular chicken things with the rest of the flock and that night went in to shut the coop up after work and all seemed well. Friday morning she wouldn't get down of...

    About a week and a half ago my White Rock Roo of 2 years suddenly just dropped dead while I was out in the yard chasing a Buff hen. He was flipping out one minute, then dead on the ground the next. He went from crowing to a funny coo to expired all in a minutes time. I heard this weird coo noise...
