Yo, Bird!

Hey, bird outside the window: It's 1 A.M. All the other birds are asleep. All the smart ones. So why are you singing? No one's up to hear you. No one, except of course a poor college student who's up trying to study for her calc test. You're really annoying her. She thinks you need to get a new internal clock and chirp during the day like the other, normal birds. No one cares what you have to say at 1 in the morning. Especially when it's a human who would much rather be in bed right now than trying to concentrate and is being distracted by the Internet and the state of the world, and especially, YOU. She says, get a life and be quiet for once in a week. So do her a favor and shut up before she finally loses it.

The scary thing is, this actually worked.

Nettie,

Perhaps that bird decided to come on holiday to Wales and join the ones singing in the lane I mentioned in my post!!

Hope you do enjoy some peace today.

"May the peace of the Lord be always with you"

I think there are bigger problems if you are up late at night talking to birds. But that is just my opinion. :)

Yo, Lady!

Can't you see I'm trying to sleep over her but the noise of your keyboard and your wandering eyes (which yes, I see, keep peeping at me) are really ANNOYING. Hey and another thing--Can't you ever shut that darn high-glare computer screen off, maybe if you could face that screen a bit more North, like try the North Pole and away from my nest, I could have some peaceful rest around here. Don't you know I have little peeps cooking over here and with the amount of sleep I've been getting, thanks to your insentivity, I'm gonna be one crabby birdy.

So I'll shut up for now OK, but just wait til you close your little peepers...I'll be singing my song just for you!

I have to admit--when I read this, I wondered who was annoying whom the most--you or the bird.

Nettie,
That reminds me of this rooster that used to "live" near my house... I lived in the "country" :) The poor thing crowed like it was on it's death bed to begin with, but the crazy thing would crow at all hours of the night! 1 am, 2 am, you name it, he crowed..... unless it was daylight, of course.... lol!

Help Your Pet Cope With Stress Caused By Loud Noises:
Which is the noisiest species of all? Nope not the lions, or the elephants, or the geese? it's US HUMANS, our voices were not enough, we started making music and creating musical instruments to help us being louder.

Hi, I was out blogging and found your site. It certainly got my attention and interest. I was looking for Litter information and even though this isn't a perfect match I enjoyed your site. Thanks for the read!

Hello Residential General Contractors

One of the most popular home improvements where home improvement contractors come in handy are the re styling of your home. If you really wish to give your home a total professional new style then there are lots of interior designers out there who are very willing to help you re furnish and style you house to get the look that you are looking for. However, the problem is that they tend to be quite expensive even though they are really only consultants. As with any other home improvement project, you're the one that will have to pay for all materials and the hours that the contractors spend telling you how to choose fabrics and so on.

No matter what type of home improvement project you plan on doing - a large or small job, the home improvement contractors you choose will have a great impact on the results you get for your home improvements. Always make sure that you see their certificates and the materials that they use. Do this both before the job is started and while the project is in progress as well. If you don't like something they are doing you have the decision to stop their work.
