    Remember back to the stupid years when we thought that we were immortal? Anyone who does not believe in God didn't travel with me during those years.

    Someone polished it too, and I keep slipping off. [​IMG]

    I remember those years.....they came to a screeching halt on 7 june 1995 with a leukemia diagnosis.....i had asthma then and although i had bouts that were as severe my asthma wasnt this persistant....but i had been warned that this might happen as i aged.

    Next time - tell them it is broken, not just old. Looks like that worked. Glad you got it going. Hope it does the trick. I know breathing issues are super scary. Just try to stay ahead of it, and oh, by the way, smoke from a burning things is probably not the best medicine. Just saying! [​IMG]

    In the app, the desktop has the tool bar, but won't upload for me either. Just played with the site on my phone and the tool bar is there and worked, so one issue worked out I guess. I sure like just tapping the app button instead of looking for it on Google. Just lazy I guess.


    Morning all. Just spent 3 hours and several gallons of sweat working downtown on our flower beds. Feels good to jump in the cool pond.

    Ok, real chicken question - advise please:

    Our fair is in two weeks. We are doing blood testing tomorrow. We have a limit to the number of birds we can bring due to availability of cages so our number is 5 entries per person. I have 2 chosen but I am trying to decide between the following 5 for my final 3. These are really the first Cochins that I have raised. They are 14 weeks right now so still pretty young and I know they have more filling in to do but I only have 2 weeks. So, Who would you take?

    For a totally ill informed and ignorant opinion, i like your silverlaced bantam. Probably as useful as a smack in the chops. I realise.
