  1. First!
    Saw this post earlier and thought someone would have commented by now.
    I have been outside in the back of the property clearing brush.

  2. Michael says:

    Hackers almost locked me out of my own blog…this is getting old.

  3. Is that why nothing but the old ads are up now?

  4. gomergirl says:

    Sorry. That sucks.

  5. Michael says:

    I took the other ones down…they weren’t producing any income and I thought they might be how the hackers were breaking in.
    They are still hitting the back end somehow…

  6. Once they got in, they probably made sure they can continue to get in.

  7. Michael says:

    The ad thing frustrates me no end anyway…the Alexa ratings on the blog are very high, yet we made a little over fifty cents from those ads last month.
    Back to the drawing board…

  8. Michael says:

    GG,

    Every morning I have a bunch of Polish language posts ready to be posted…and I don’t speak or write Polish. 🙂

  9. Michael says:

    Derek,

    Probably…even though I have all the security available in place…

  10. Bob says:

    Michael maybe you should switch servers. I see you are using “Wild West Domains,” could they possibly be the problem with your hacking?

    There are a lot of choices out there for servers and I would bet some have a better record than others for security.

    Although they seem to be the low-cost no support side of GoDaddy

    Sorry to hear about your difficulties though.

  11. Joel Osteen finds reasons to follow the OT dietary laws, will he be wanting all Christians to circumcised next?
    It is hard to believe that anyone takes this guy seriously.

    $30,000 to local idiot attorney to SLAPP your kids again.

    $75,000 to appellate attorney to SLAPP your kids again.

    $150,000 to pay anti-SLAPP attorneys when you lose (with CC Jesus-money of course)…PRICELESS! (well not really, that’s a load of dough that was collected under the guise of giving it to Jesus).

  13. Michael says:

    Bob,

    It’s the software…Wordpress has always had vulnerabilities, but has gtten much better.
    In the bad old days I’d wake up to a pile of what was left of the blog… 🙂

  14. Michael says:

    Derek,

    There were 18,000 people in that place…
    Me, I’m having pork chops for dinner…like I do about three nights a week. 🙂

  15. Michael says:

    Derek,

    You have skills…very nice.
    We’re going out and try to get some good pictures of all our hawks…they don’t enjoy having their pictures taken. 🙂

  16. Get a good zoom on them. My eagle pics bombed bad a few weeks ago.

  17. I am lucky I am not allergic to poison oak or ivy, ’cause there was a lot of it back there.

  18. Michael says:

    Unfortunately, the highest power camera I have is on my iPhone…and it has little zoom.
    We were setting up about ten feet away from one sitting in a pear tree…just beautiful…when a car drove by and felt the need to lay on the horn for some reason.
    We’re going back out in a few minutes…

  19. Michael says:

    I get poison oak from looking at it…bad stuff.
    The worst is when people burn it…and the smoke carries that stuff all all over us.

  20. That would be the optimal pic for a hawk.
    I saw a redtail take out a rabbit in a field today.

  21. Michael says:

    “I saw a redtail take out a rabbit in a field today.”
    Totally cool…I think they’ve cleaned the rabbits out around here….they’re working on rats now.

  22. I was on a road near a cotton field that was harvested at the end of fall.
    He was on a electric pole when I saw him make his move and swoop down.
    Not a huge rabbit, but I am sure the hawk is eating good.

    I never have my camera on me or else I am driving usually when I see things like that.

  23. Michael says:

    There’s a four mile stretch between my house and Trey’s moms house where we’ve counted 9 red tails and one huge Coopers hawk.
    There really isn’t any place to pull over so we get frustrated trying to get pictures.

  24. Well, they aren’t the best, but here are three pics of a bald eagle over Sardis Lake and one I got of a bald eagle in a tree near Nemo, SD.

    http://derekthornton71.blogspot.com/2014/01/bald-eagles.html

    After thinking about it, I guess my last statement isn’t strictly true. The pic from Nemo, I was driving home and I saw the eagle swooping down when a car had passed by and then going back to the tree when I went by.
    He was guarding a deer carcass he was feasting on.
    I was able to go home and get my camera and come back and take his picture.
    I just need more money to get a better zoom and I could have some awesome nature shots.

  25. My mom and dad are birders.
    They actually go and help the Audubon Society do bird counts and things like that.

    They live right by Sardis Lake which has a lot of bald eagles.
    They are in hog heaven.

  26. Dude says:

    Most of the birds in my area are pretty smart,they went south for the winter.It’s about 10 degrees outside and everything is frozen solid.

  27. Google’s “Blogger” never have the problems that WordPress has Michael.

    I saw some trucks with flat tires on the side of the road on my way to Pasadena today. No hawks no birds, just insane drivers going way to fast and doing stupid stuff on the road. Count your blessings.

    Oh wait a minute, I did see a red tail hawk high up in my Ash tree looking down on my Plimouth rock chicken in my back yard. For some reason they don’t go after her. Must be her coloring.

    Steve Wright of CC Lake Elsinore,

    You are in Aimee Semple McPhearson’s old habitation area. Pastor Tilson Shumate once gave me the Cook’s tour of that area. Way back in the seventies he was interested in building a fellowship there. He was going to buy an old abandoned building and rehab it.

    Turned out that the buildings reputation for being haunted was well earned. Tilson slept in the building one night to see for himself what it was all about. He never went back. Apparently a bunch of sheets of plywood started to fly around and scattered along with some disturbing demonic loud noises.

    That old abandoned neighbor hood with the roads and street lights was built by the same company that had built the abandoned neighborhood at the foot of the LA airport runway. Both neighborhoods have those signature street lights.

    Lake Elsinore has some interesting history. Just like the Salton Sea down the road has.

    You are in an area of much spiritual warfare. The area is a battleground so I know you are under a lot of pressure.

    Unless things have changed in recent years. I used to drive around there in the 90’s.
