Today's Verse

Shoutbox

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

JudyB: Take care in the heat, try to stay cool! Jul 05 2019 11:36am

Carol: Jane:  Super nice to see you posting.  Jun 26 2019 6:40pm

Jane Walker: Hi everyone!  I just want y'all to know that I'm here and will, one day, be up to posting again.  things have been getting in the way, is all Jun 25 2019 4:45pm

I think the Magpie is a very splendid bird

They say " one for sorrow, two for joy..." whenever I throw bread out it never takes long for " one " Magpie to swoop down into our back garden and cart the whole slice away....We live down in the valley, of isolated countryside, how the birds know when I put out bread or fill the seed containers I will never know but, it never takes long for word to spread around... :)
Magpies are beautiful but, Blackbirds are my favourite birds...and we have a few that come to my garden...

I thought it was pretty Judy

Though there is a bit of superstition about Magpie, this rhyme will explain it.

Magpie rhyme.
One for sorrow
two for joy
three for a girl
four for a boy
five for silver
six for gold
seven for a secret never to be told

But does anyone know 8,9 & 10?

Jacqueline

Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a bird,
You must not miss...

Yes. You are right. The Magpie is a magnificent bird and very intelligence.
