    U.S. Politics; Who Watches the Watchers?

    My husband's workplace is discussing unionizing and it's not going well. But then, it is is fairly rural PA (Hanover). I was pretty surprised to hear him repeating all the "bad" things about unions. The bosses are letting it be known that they don't approve. (no threats or anything, but their displeasure has been made known) It is a British owned company, and up until this past year or so, it has been great with the benefits. (I would have thought they would be ok with unions)

    We got so many Charmanders I was able to evolve both the best shiny to Charazard and a regular Charmander, and power them both up to max, on both mine and my son's accounts (and doing 2 at once meant I took longer with each group, so I could have had even more). It was one of the best community days I've seen. I had 3 shinny's (the last one was just a 10cp, but the 1st one was in the 500's) so I now have the whole set in shiny. I got 2 for my son. I missed the Mareep community day though, so I'm not sure if this one was better or not. It was slightly better than Dratini, and a hell of a lot better than Bulbasauar.

    Laurel or Yanny?

    On the tv, I heard Laurel, but listening to the clip linked above, I heard Yanny. Weird

    T-Tar is also back. I was very happy to see him. I just need to catch a couple.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Saw a yellow finch at the feeder, but a chipmunk chased it away before I could get a picture. Later the house finches came back, and let me say the male was a total shit. He decided he only likes 1 kind of seed and stood there tossing a ton of seed to the ground looking for the magic marshmallows. Also caught a squirrel at the feeder I was all excited that the birds had eaten over half of the seed I put in there, then I saw what was really happening. I'm going to get a squirrel proof feeder and maybe I will see if finches like a particular type of seed. maybe

    This new forum is the bomb!

    Love the backgrounds. Don't love that the messages and notifications aren't fixed to the top menu bar (can't see them when you scroll down)

    Yep, we had a few added a couple of weeks ago. One is at the American Legion. A lady (who happens to be a member of that AL) was in the parking lot, battling the gym, and a person from there asked what she was doing. She told them and they said she can't use their parking lot. And she's a member! They are also going to ask that the gym be removed. What a bunch of curmudgeons. So glad I never got around to joining. (it's on a little side street, so no on street parking--access only by walking since that is the only parking lot around)

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Since the weather has been so awesome, I'm sleeping with my windows open. I love waking to birdsong. I like to try and count how many I can hear. Honestly can only identify 1 right now (the mourning dove) The other morning I heard the weirdest bird call, and I have been listening for it every morning, but it hasn't repeated. (I'm trying to think if it was Sunday, so it may have been after sunrise, and I'm listening too early now) It was 5 noises that repeated for over 10 minutes. Sorry I can't describe better than what I have below, but prior to getting out of bed, my mind is still a bit befuddled. it started with the first half of a "wolf whistle", then it sounded very much like "stranger" (which is why I focused in on this song of the dozens I can hear) and then 3 identical short chirp noises. so weird. I'm listening to birdsongs on u-tube to try and find it. the first one I heard of a tufted titmouse sounded close on the "stranger" part, but the second video, not as much (plus there was the rest of the song).

    It's interesting. I hadn't seen an article about that until after the first ex-raid. I have to admit, it was a bad location...limited parking during business hours. Good thing our group is as small as the town (would have been worse on a weekday as it is the town hall building parking lot we used). The park is much better, and now we have another gym at the little pond/park down the road from my house. Hopefully with 3 options (2 at the main park, one at the pond) we won't have any more in the middle of "down town"

    Our first one was at a historic building at the main intersection in our town (my son had an invite). We gathered in the parking lot across the street.(one of only 2 parking small lots in "downtown".) The next 2 were at the park. (yes, our town is so small that we have just 1 main intersection)

    In the US, at least, it is gyms in Parks, and ours have always been on weekends. 2 pm on a Monday here, and no one here would should up. Kids are in school, adults at work (or school). There was a report a while back that said you had to raid at that gym and you had to spend some time in that gym to increase your chances (but neither of these are guarantees, as I had done that the first 2 times and didn't get an invite. I swear I would have quit for good if I hadn't gotten one this last time around). I think some businesses complained about the hoards showing up the first time, so ever since then, we've only had them in parks or park like areas.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Thanks! I look up the descriptions, and sometimes it is hard to tell the difference, and sometimes the only option suggested something comes close, but is not quite it.

    I just saw the Grackle going into my grill! Now I know who the culprit is. I had just cleaned and used the damn think on Friday. I saw a male and female house finch at my feeder and one I'm not positive of, but I think might be a Hoary Redpoll?

    Feminism -- A continuing discussion

    that is not how it works. say 4 women each slept with 1 guy, the same guy. The women truthfully say they only slept with 1 person, while the guy slept with 4. Yes, there is lying and exaggerating on all sides, but the numbers don't have to match. **************************** After reading all the stories above I decided to talk to my 15 (almost 16) yr old son last night. His reaction was kind of funny, even if politically incorrect (which I also spoke to him about). I was reading the article about the incels to him and he said "why are you telling me all this stuff? those guys are retarded." Anyway, he might be a shy, award, basement dweller who had spent 2 yrs crushing on a girl who put him in the friend zone, but he knows and understands what is wrong with the way those guys treat women and what they expect from them. (I worried a little, he does spend a lot of time on-line)

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    I think I have identified the little blackbirds in the neighborhood. I knew they were too small to be crows. I think they are Common Grackles (wish my picture was better). Also, one of the crazy robins' has made its nest in a little bush next to the deck. Problem is, we haven't see the parents in a while. I'm hoping the nest hasn't been abandoned. Still haven't identified the little bugger who kept nesting in the fireplace vent. It was small, brown with some white, but moving too fast for me to get a good look, and no picture. Looking it up, it might be a sparrow, but I thought it looked a lot fatter than the sparrows. I'll eventually either see it with my glasses on or catch a picture of it.

    So he'd throw a lady's husband to the wolves and then save the lady. And there she is, so pretty, so rich, with no husband...

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    I would like to do this, but I still don't have a decent camera (Still, I want a picture of all my sightings). Right now I'm just using a Coolpix zoom. Love the zoom on it, but hate that it doesn't have a view finder, just the screen on the back. One thing I have learned is you need a tripod or something to stabilize the camera when zoomed out really far...just the slightest movement and the pic is either very blurry, or in a different spot

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Thanks! I was about 90% sure they were Downy (I looked them up and the Hairy Woodpeckers also are larger). It was interesting that they were both females...at first we thought they were doing some sort of mating thing (a game of chase and tag) I've downloaded an app from the Audubon to start tracking, and plan to go out early on weekends. I see a lot more types as I drive around, but during the week, don't have time to stop (and I looked it up and there are over 400 species in my state and Heron's have been seen down by the pond near my house. I'm excited. (I need things to excite me, to drag me out of my head space, make me interact with others )

    I've only been able to delete "researches" I didn't want. I've had a few I would rather not have had too

    I started working my son's new/alt account just in time. Got Moltres this morning. 3 more k's and one more evolved and I'll be hunting another Ditto. That was the main downside to starting a new account (or for people to start playing)...you missed the legendary raids
