Squirrel House Update

Yesterday, as I watched the “squirrel house” outside my window, I saw the mother squirrel pick up my dogs’ brown stuffed beaver toy (laying on the grass).  She picked it up by the back of the neck, walked a bit with it, and suddenly shook it out of her mouth.  She then put the toy back down on the grass and walked away.  Oh, for a video of that moment!  Amazing!  I guess she thought one of her babies had fallen out of the house????!!!!!

New fan of iGoogle and GMail

I am such a fan of iGoogle as my home page.  I have added all sorts of “Gadgets” like news, weather, literary quotes, hangman, NYTimes Crossword Puzzle, nature photographs, birthday reminders, famous quotes, etc.  I love it!

My son, Brett, has assisted me in changing my e-mail to a web-based one named Gmail.  It is very user-friendly and has easy ways to organize and categorize your “conversations” (e-mails from people and sites).  You will never lose an important e-mail that you receive.  I am sure many of you know about this, but I had not tried it.  Any e-mails sent to my suddenlink address will be  forwarded to the new one at gmail, so please keep conversing.
