I finished putting the wood sealant on the fly-through birdfeeder. I also cleared weeds and dead branches away from the tree where I plan to put it, with some help from Doug wielding the loppers. Supposed to rain the next day or so, but after that, I should be able to put this thing up and fill it. I think the cardinals will like it better than the little hopper-feeder I have now.

Paul Virgo, Inter Press Service: "'Angry' is not the adjective that comes to mind when you first meet Nelly Damaris Chepkoskei. The immaculately dressed 53-year-old Kenyan is generous with her time and with the smiles that light up her beautiful face and never misses a chance to crack a joke before punctuating it with hearty chuckles. But the rage wells up when she speaks about how her life as a farmer in the Kericho District of Western Kenya has changed over the last 20 years."
My partner Doug sent me the link for this amusing exchange about someone trying to get a graphic artist to do (more) work for free.
