    the most basic scientific background, Literature and Humanities instead, I'm very greatful for the common names, as well as with plants.  I was partial to the biological sciences though as opposed to the physical.

    All the birds are as busy as ever and I need to refuel the feeders again in a bit.  The weather in the Southern Plains has been as crazy as seems to be the new normal.  A series of hard freezes has decimated most of the early blooms which were already late.  The 10 day forecasts are a seesaw of up and downs, higher highs, lower highs, higher lows and lower lows.  Only got a little moisture with the last fronts and partial snow cover at the end. Forecasts also includes lots of chances of rain, but as with the temperatures all the different weather centers, NWS, Weather Channel, Weather Underground, and the three major TV stations are all predicting different times and figures.  And possibily another hard freeze next week.

    If that sounds confusing, it is.  As a long time weather watcher, I'm aware of the usual missed marks, and March is always somewhat unsettled, but I've never seen anything like the last few weeks.  I look at all the so-called "planners" and just LOL.

    But the birds seem happy enough and it's easy to keep them well fed.

    Off to refill the feeders for the noon lunch crowd.

    Hope everyone else is having or will soon have some great weather depending on your particular needs.

    More: Some men think the Earth is round, others think it flat; it is a matter capable of question. But if it is flat, will the King's command make it round? And if it is round, will the King's command flatten it?
