It’s been a few weeks since I last checked in and I wanted to give you the latest happenings at the crazy House of HawkTalk…
Our new and improved web site has gone on line! A big HawkTalk thanks goes out to Rick of Pensacola for constructing our new site! www.hawktalk.org Please give it a peek and tell me what you think, I sure would appreciate it. This is a VAST improvement from the pitiful GoDaddy one-pager. I have personal experience now with site building and I STINK at it!
Another big thanks goes out to Gary of Woodstock for improving my search engine results and for helping spiff up my Facebook Fan Page. Please check this one out when you get the chance and ‘like’ us! http://www.facebook.com/pages/HawkTalk-Inc/87224255702
Gary also created our YouTube channel! I am UP TOWN, now! Woot! http://www.youtube.com/user/MonteenMcCord?feature=mhee
Here’s our latest video update on Francis the Great horned owl who found herself on the wrong end of a leg hold trap. Leg’s still very swollen and I’ve resorted to witchdoctor cures because conventional medicine isn’t progressing her very well. I’m applying colloidal silver, Arnica mixed with DMSO after drizzling her leg with 16 ounces of super-dooper Epsom Salts every two hours during the day. Here is a link to our latest video update that I shot yesterday. http://www.youtube.com/user/MonteenMcCord?feature=mhee#p/u/6/7SrP6D6nRBY
This next clip isn’t the soundtrack inside my head **crickets chirping**, but it’s my yard at 3am. Not much to look at, but the audio is awesome! http://www.youtube.com/user/MonteenMcCord?feature=mhee#p/u/8/4rEdrJD7ofA
Here is the latest on our home issue…Carlos called a few weeks ago and in what appears as a last grasping-at-straws effort, he requested I produce a second quarter Profit and Loss Statement for HawkTalk. Now bear in mind that charity’s aren’t required to produce P&L Statements because, GUESS WHAT, there IS no profit, which is why we’re referred to as non-for-profit-businesses! But, this is the zombie banker mentality that I’m dealing with, sooo…I enlisted help in the form of a young lady who is in her first year of college that has fun with numbers and spread sheets. (which most certainly isn’t yours truly)… Thanks to Elexis and Amelia for helping me pull this together.
NOW, I sit and I wait for them to render judgment…AGAIN. I’m still clinging to the edge of the cliff with my Lee Press-On Nails…so far, that cheap glue from China is still holding!
However, in the mean time…back at the ranch; guess what I found last evening on line? That’s right…the email addresses for Carlos AND the President of Bank of America! Woot! You know how radio shows have money bom bs? Well we need an email bom b! (I put the space in between the ‘m’ and the ‘b’ so I don’t send off red flags and Homeland Security doesn’t SWAT team my house:)
I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind please writing these two people and perhaps copy and paste your favorite you tube video link, or if we are Facebook friends, perhaps you could right click and choose your favorite photo to embed and ask them to please help us remain on this property. Anyone who has visited knows that the place isn’t much to look at and they would end up bulldozing it because no one wanted it for the four years that it was on the market and actually worth something.
As tempted as I am to say mean things and remind them of issues they don’t want to be reminded of, (TARP/lawsuits, etc), my letter to them will be diplomatic…I need their help, so I don’t want to make them mad at me. Please do the same?
This is a clip of Elexis’s desert tortoise that I immediately fell in love with! http://www.youtube.com/user/MonteenMcCord?feature=mhee#p/u/16/D1P822oa5VY
Judy and Missy came out a couple weeks ago and produced this very cool video for us… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMxhnKjUb7U&feature=share Love the audio!!!!
I am still in the process of hacking the Red shouldered hawks, the Broad wings AND the wonderful little Barred owls. Everyone is doing well and it makes my heart glad that they look so good. I saw three of the owls at the same time yesterday, which was nice…haven’t seen the four together for some time and I don’t know if one has dispersed, or if they are just coming in for additional food at different times. Doesn’t matter…they are progressing beautifully and I’m still taking advantage of photographing them while they still allow me to get close.
I start off far away and ease up on them so they don’t startle…
Just a little fuzz left on his head! They’re growing up so fast…
The frog’s head is a lonely place without an owl perched on top!
Francis the Great horned owl…has been so polite in my ministerings to her. She knows I’m only trying to help.
Miss Karen – the Saipan Jungle Fowl. The is definitely the alpha female in my yard…
Richard – the silly sideways dancing rooster…
