  1. Hatching chicks 2019

    Candled again yesterday . 25 were showing movement inside , even the blue eggs showing an air cell . Stop the turning tomorrow and raise humidity for hatch to begin .
  2. Hatching chicks 2019

    Getting a head start on the Spring , or is it anticipation ... I don’t know ! ? Anyway I am in day 14 of incubating eggs hoping to get a good ratio of hatchers 40 eggs went in . Culled after candling yesterday 8 were non starters and I’m find it damn near impossible to candle blue eggs . So I’m left with 30 which are developing right on schedule . I believe this new incubator Adam got last year to be far and away the easiest one ever . Forced air , built in electronic hydrometer and electronic thermostat make it easy to check just a couple times a day . So , one more week and we shall see !
  3. Hatching chicks 2019

    They really are , a quick glance at the control screen shows temp , set temp and humidity. Add a bit of water to the tray every other day . After checking and candling the temp comes back in less than a minute . Pics .. when they , wait ... can’t count em yet !
  4. Woodstock 50th Coming To Watkins Glen

    Bwahaa , “ whether they remember it or not “ ... Because as the saying goes “ if you remember Woodstock , you weren’t really there “ ! Guess we’ll just see how this plays out , but I do hope for the best !
  5. Woodstock 50th Coming To Watkins Glen

    The Survivors ! No not the original attendee’s , the band members who are / may still be alive ! I kid ( sort of ) 😂 All kidding aside I think this is Great news ... however , remember , the mentality of today’s attendee’s ,to such an affair , will be close to a 365 degree difference from the original generations ! This area Better be ready for some serious party go’ers both young an old...er .
  6. Path For Chemung County?

    Yeah , after some thought on my post it really wasn’t quite in line with the topic at hand , please disregard ! As to Casella ... we were sold out by the County to be the trash heap for the Rotten Apple ! But I look forward to what the new Legislators and County Executive can bring to the table ...
  7. Path For Chemung County?

    By Eastern Town I can assume that Baldwin is included? As to Zoning and Ordinances in Baldwin, we are zoned Agricultural/ Residential. Ordinances have been in place as Law, voted in by Town Residents, since the mid nineties. Now found to be “arbitrary" by some Past and Present Town Officials, the Ordinances are rarely, if ever, enforced by Code Enforcement! So I can safely say Baldwin will never be in the running for anything other than ... let’s call them Cottage industries, and that’s being generous! I agree wholeheartedly with KRSullivan on the landfill issue that garbage from outside the County by Casella needs to be limited.
  8. New Year's Goals

    Yes . .. just sayin !
  9. New Year's Goals

    Not into resolutions so much as resolve. Looking forward to a project at the Rod and Gun Club to improve our pistol range with some help from from some highly placed people . One of whom reminded me ( vehemently) just last week that he will make good on his promise to get it done ! Normally I am quite introverted , but resolved , with the help of another club member to break the ice with another Official , things should get rolling soon . I am also resolved this year to only take on physical projects / tasks which I can handle ! This after last years debacle which I do not care to repeat !! I have also resolved to be more proactive with my bee hobbie . Having last year joined a local beekeepers Club I have learned so much of what we need to be doing but have not . And that’s about it , no major changes just chugging along enjoying Family , Friends and life in general !
  10. Lansing Man Arrested For Animal Cruelty

    I like to believe there is a Special place in hell where whatever Evil is perpetrated on pets is returned tenfold on the perpetrator !
  11. Lowest form of life , waste of good oxygen ... wishing him all the worst !!
  12. Elmira Man Arrested On Weapons Charges

    Shoot , he’ll be all tatted up by then ! Wonder if he will still be smiling as he’s passed around ... but forget all that , he’s going to get youthful offender status anyway !
  13. Elmira Man Arrested On Weapons Charges

    And it’s laughing ?! Somebody must have told the Bubba joke ... Guess breaking the Law is one big joke after all , just don’t let Goofus here breed with that smiley female from last week Please .
  14. Yep , Good attitude going on there , perky .. not so many “smarts “ but very perky !
  15. God Friended Me

    It has about the same premise as Manifest . Only unlike Manifest it doesn’t have the whole Government conspiracy stuck in there with shootem ups and explosions . More relaxing and feel good type show , and yes , we watch Manifest as well LOL !
  16. I think for the most part we are becoming desensitized by all this “ dinnit see nuttin “ thing when Police are trying to get to the bottom of things ! IMHO , MEH ... no biggie ! Do I Like the way it’s going or my attitude , Hell no but it just going to get worse before it gets better . Large groups fleeing the scene and nobody cooperating sickens me , and yes it should be a charge obstruction of Justice . But no , the Law shows up , calls EMTs for any injured parties of fights or shootings and so called “ victims “ see nothing ?? Meanwhile that Ambulance is not able to respond to that guy having a heart attack or that baby choking ... no their skills are being Wasted , that’s what I said Wasted , at the scene of some Drama injury or other such nonsense as we are seeing in Elmira anymore ! YMMV ( an old Marcy acronym ) but it’s all good !
  17. Involved parties not cooperating with the investigation ! 😱 say it isn’t so !!
  18. Ithaca has the Jungle , Elmira has bridge communities . Surprising a city that touts Safe shootup places for addicts can’t seem to help some of the homeless ( the ones that want help that is ) .
  19. Tolerance

    Thank you Linda ! I miss what we once were , when we knew where we stood ! I find I don’t like where we as a Country are headed . I have tried to be tolerant but I will not be bullied , I grew up being bullied and belittled , no , those days are over for me now ! I’ve earned my right to my opinion , I have , like many others given years of my life to uphold someone else’s Right to thier opinion . I too would rather agree to disagree , I like a spirited discussion from time to time ( ask my kids lol ) . But now in the face of some who refuse to try to be civil I find my survival instinct kicking in to defend my own ideals and sometimes I feel ashamed that I let them do that to me ! But as that is what we have been forced become all we can do is ask the Maker for Forgiveness and move through this World being the best person we can be . I hope you can find my point in all that mess as I’m not all that articulate . I leave that to Ann and others like Yourself . 😉
  20. Got a feeling Willie is barking up the wrong tree ! Imagine explaining just what got stuck in your throat when you head for the Emergency room ?
  21. Bicycle Sharing program Could Be Coming To Elmira

    Yes ... they still have that program and it still will work the same way . Only difference , these bikes are odd shaped and will be difficult to sell at the second hand stores . But Mark my words more than a few of the local genius’s will repaint and attempt to pawn them !
  22. West Elmira Police Seeking Pick Up Truck

    Actually that was my first thought when this story broke ! When I see something interesting on the shoulder of the road but no “free “sign I keep going . But there are those that cruise some areas on garbage day and find some good stuff ! I am happy to see this end well as an honest mistake ... but it is better to check with the home owner if there is no indication it is there to be taken . Works well over here also !
  23. Town Of Elmira Not Immune From Fiscal Problems

    Well there’s the answer to why Baldwin did not make the last article . Town of Baldwin ranks at the very top . But not just because of alphabetical ranking , it’s Fiscal Reporting has not been kept up for at least Five Years ! And the OSC has brought this to the attention of the Town Supervisor , Town Book keeper and Town Board !
  24. Bicycle Sharing program Could Be Coming To Elmira

    Hmmm , decreased fare for low income persons ... grow and move into a new era ... and this , specialized pricing for low - moderate income residents then this ... downloadable apps and those without smartphones ( sure , like the low income folks in Elmira don’t have smartphones ) can use devices with texting capabilities ! Anyone want to play the long shot odds on this lasting past the first year . Meh , nothing to get excited about , same old same old . Unless these bikes are heavily , I mean heavily Insured there is no money to be made here ! Nope not negativity on my part just being realistic ...
  25. Nice ... he has to REQUEST funds for his ( begrudgingly said ) own State , but can Order funding from his State to help P.R.
