Tuesday Chatter Weekly – April 18, 2016

Welcome to, Tuesday Chatter, a place where there’s never a dull moment! You can brew what you spew and spew what you brew! A friendly place for thought-provoking chatter and a meeting of minds. We can laugh together and cry together; learn from each other and share with one another. I love the world of blogging, don’t you? You must or you wouldn’t be here. Please share your reasons for blogging as I would love to read them.

Here is a perfect example of a reason to enjoy blogging – “a little lunch, a little wine, a LOT of talking”. Diane loves to read, loves to write and loves to talk. She shares everything worthwhile and I guarantee her blog will make you smile. Pop in and visit Diane at ladieswholunchreviews.

Hey, wait! I have more reasons to enjoy blogging. If you are pondering a summer vacation, Maggie’s blog will be a great asset in helping you decide on your destination.  Impressive photos and descriptions about amazing places are graciously shared by Maggie in her very informative blog – travelmagnolia  Be sure to stop by and visit.

Before I introduce my next featured blogger, I have something to share. My husband and I were sitting on the porch, with a cup of coffee, and we saw two doves had taken an interest in our hanging plants. They would flit from plant to plant while making their cute little cooing sounds.

My husband said, “they’re looking for a place to build a nest”. Well, lo and behold, he was right. The hanging plant at the end of our porch became the site for their nest. What a fun week it has been watching the activity and we’ve kept our distance so we won’t scare our feathered friends.

I did some research on nesting doves and found “The female lays 2 white eggs in the nest, and both she and her partner take turns incubating the eggs for 14 days. The fledgling Mourning Doves leave the nest in about 15 days after hatching.” I had no idea the male shared in incubating the eggs, did you?

Also per my source, “The nest is usually poorly constructed, although both sexes of the Mourning Dove are involved in making it – the male gathers the twigs, grass and pine needles and takes it to the female who stays on the nest while she is building it.

Their nests can be found in trees or even in hanging plants”, which explains why they chose our hanging plant. I’ll keep you in the loop about what happens with our doves and if you have anything you would like to share, please do.

And, my next blogger is exceptional. “I’m just a WYSIWYG kind of guy…who wears his heart on his sleeve.” and in his words “The blog may evolve over time..different themes, added or deleted pages and categories …I will do my best to entertain you or make you angry enough to make a comment/reply, so stick around, you never know what’s going to happen in the ‘Steel City’……”. Stop by and chat with,  steelcityman.

And a special message for our poets, April is National Poetry Month, a celebration of poetry that began in 1996. It was started by the Academy of American Poets to bring awareness to poetry in the US. National poetry is also celebrated each April in Canada.

Please stop in and visit my new blog, dedicated to poetry – ThusNSuch

  1. We have a blue bird house about ten feet from our back door. A pair raises three or four clutches there every summer. It’s so nice to share our days with them.

  2. How wonderful! We have a pair of robins nesting in the ivy growing over our shed, last year we spent hours sitting watching them both flying back and forth. They are so tame and hop about inches away from us collecting ants etc. One even sat on my husband’s back as he lent over stacking logs recently! We feel very privileged.

  3. Thank you so much for the mention in Tuesday Chatter 24…gave me quite a buzz to appear in your ‘space’…I’ve been a little quiet lately, thinking of ways to ‘evolve’ the blog, but your inclusion of my name in a class blog like yours has re inspired me to put fingers on keys again…all the best from me and The ‘Steel City’ (Sheffield) xxx
