Superbowl Pigout On The Way! (And Other Stuff)
Yeah take a look at that crow... Wow, is that a great embodiment of what too many of us will be doing Sunday - hogging down! Come on... admit it. Even if you're not a crazy football fan, on Sunday Feb. 1, your eyes might well glass over as you pass by your friend's informal buffet table, and then... Well... Katie latch the door. Take care - there are calories and sodium by the 1,000s and mgs respectively.
Keep in mind that the 12th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count is nearing. Try not to miss out on the fun!
On a distinctly sadder note, the USDA carried out a sizable bird kill in NJ last Jan 23 - 25. Interesting to note that the poisoning was done on a Friday. (In politics, unpleasant activities often "happen" on Fridays. That's the day when there is the best chance that the media will completely gloss over the story - in "politic-speak", Fridays are referred to as "Taking-Out-The-Trash Day".) Maybe the timing was just a coincidence...
Gotta run, but keep our heart-unhealthy spaghetti recipe in mind (as well as the birds) come this Sunday.
See you by the feeders and wear your shoulder pads,
