There have been so many false past reports in the past that Osama bin Laden had been captured, it had to be a "world wide relief" to hear President Obama state,
"I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children."
And what a "statement" that was ! (big sigh) I can only imagine what a frenzy the media is experiencing, not to mention the exhaustion, of dealing with two World Wide History events within days of each other......
Onto lighter events in life......"mine", as there have been some hectic news breaking days right here "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
For instance, my cousin's Brad & Paula's daughter, Erin, emailed me pictures of the "Magnificent Seven" she had taken on Saturday, and once I had posted them on Facebook last night there was an "frenzy" of postings from people almost instantly !!! I suppose I should also share a couple of those pictures that created such a momentary frenzy on my facebook page:
Ha, ha, ha.....thanks Erin, you took some really "fantastic" shots of the "Magnificent Seven".
For the next "news breaking" story I have to report the "Tree Swallows" have returned to nest in the birdhouse beside our pond in the backyard. I was absolutely thrilled to see this pair back, as I so enjoyed watching them all last summer. They actually got so used of me being there in the garden around the pond, it never bothered them to come and go. The metallic like blue is very striking.... I am hoping to capture them in some pictures this summer, but in the meantime this website gave me some details about the "Tree Swallow" itself:
I had no idea what kind of bird this was, until I had found out through "Whatbird.com". I knew it was blue and swallow like, however knew it wasn't a barn swallow or a Purple Martin. I am also patiently waiting to see if our "Blue Heron" also returns to our property this year.
The "final" news breaking story would be the winner who got the most votes for their suggestions on choosing a name for my nameless "Kitchen Cat". May I present to you........
I am reading "40 percent showers" but until I see it I am not buying it !!!! LOL
I certainly hope that was enough "News Breaking" stories for everyone, as all that information has put my brain on overload here, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
