Doctor, I Have A Humm In My Ear

I know I said no more hummingbird pictures but this image was too good to pass up -- and I didn't even take the picture. A friend of mine snapped it just as the little guy was begging his wife for some more food.

He only got half of his wife in the shot, so naturally I will forever refer to her as his Better Half. -- Dalton Hammond

TWO Hummingbirds

Two hummingbirds on one feeder
After I publish this shot it'll be no more hummingbird photos for a while, but you need to see this.

When I bought the new feeder a few weeks ago the salesman told me I would see two or more hummers on it at a time. I found this really hard to believe, given their possessive, agressive nature (Note: See "Death By Hummingbird") but he was correct, as the picture shows.

It was raining and I was shooting through the window glass, but you get the idea. -- Dalton Hammond

Hummingbird Revisited

Perched hummingbird
Hi folks.

The hummingbirds finally found me at my new home in the Sandhills. I was hiding behind the curtains in the sun room but I don't think I fooled this one.

An Engineering View of Natural Selection, Evolution, and God

Did man evolve from apes? Was Darwin correct? How about the Big Bang theory? Is there a God? Prepare yourself for a scientific answer you can believe and understand.

Perry Marshall, a noted engineer and author, proposes a learned and convincing new way of looking at Darwin's theory of Natural Selection, Evolution, and God.

Recipe: Country style butter beans (Limas)

Fry two or three slices of bacon or streak-o'-lean in medium saucepan until crisp. Leave drippings, remove meat and munch.

Add 2 cups fresh-picked shelled butter beans and water to cover, plus an inch.

Add 1 teaspoon chicken base per cup of water (or in a pinch you could substitute chicken broth for the water), 1 teaspoon salt or to taste, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Bring to light boil then turn to low, simmer slowly, stirring occasionally until just BEFORE tender. Let cool, covered, and refrigerate overnight.

Next morning add water if necessary, simmer until just tender and eat for breakfast. Sop pot liquor with Arnold Oatnut bread.

Then thank The Good Lord.
