Robins at the Door

I had been hearing strange knocking sounds in the house for days. When I finally snuck around the house to learn the source, I discovered that a robin was pecking at our basement window, over and over and over again.

Hmmm. Did he want to come in and see what was on TV or did he think that the stuffed Pittsburgh Pirate Parrots sitting in the window well were long-lost relatives?

Then last night we found TWO robins pecking away at the patio door in the basement. Guess when a window doesn't open, maybe a door will?

It's hard to figure out a bird's intention, but this is a little odd, don't you think?

You won't believe this

Referring to my last blog which whined about how I couldn't access my Boom This! empire on the web, I finally discovered the problem. My newly updated Norton Security service was keeping me out of my own sites. Norton's program called "Safe Web" thought my sites were questionable -- even to me -- so I had to lay down the law and tell them to ease up and set my websites free!

Yesterday, for the first time in over six weeks, I could get on my own websites. Now I have to work at updating articles at which I haven't been able to do for so long. I also replaced a definite fall photo on the home page (a football player kicking an extra point) with a photo of hyacinths, now blooming in all their glory.

Amazing. Technology will either save us or kill us I am afraid. Not sure what the end result will be but for today, my little kingdom is OK. I will wait to see what happens tomorrow.
