Shoutbox

Oldiesmann: Just now realized I didn't have this set up properly... Only guests and regular users could see it and nobody could post shouts. Should be fixed now! Jun 22 2019 8:00pm

Oldiesmann: Added a shoutbox for all to enjoy. I think we had one here years ago but don't remember why we got rid of it Jun 15 2019 1:26am

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...


" Love the animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and untroubled joy.  Do not, therefore, trouble them, do not torture them, do not deprive them of their joy, do not go against God's intent. " ~  Fyodor Mikhail Dostoyevski.

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...
