    Each year, hundreds of baby hummingbirds are killed by tree trimmers but there are hummingbird rescuers in several cities who will nurse them back to health if you deliver them in time. Also, hummingbirds don't eat ants; they'll die because they can't digest the exoskeleton of some insects.

    Interesting...
    Let thought and reasoning be your guide, it certainly is mine!

    Always forward, never back!

    I look to the day and smile. Because I know that the worse days are behind me and that when the worst does come, it'll be the end for me. So no point in not smiling at today, right?

    If you find a bird's nest that's infested with mites, you can kill the bugs by dusting the birds and the nest with diatomateous earth; it's some sort of swimming pool product.

    He was a TV writer for many years. He wrote GoT intentionally as unfilmable because he was fed up with Hollywood after some failed pilots....
