   StormCnter  This is another one that has been around a while, but maybe some will enjoy it again or for the first time.

   MeiDei  Here's the gigantic gator featured on CNN

   Safetydude  Florida law prohibits the feeding of 'gators, but I guess the law doesn't apply to Mickey Mouse Land.

   Safetydude  I have seen photographs of alligators on various FL courses and I've also seen them in person. Years ago I was with a couple guys doing some training at Eglin AFB, in Niceville and we played three-four times a week.
As long as you had your cart nearby you were ok but you never shagged an errant ball in the rough if it was near water, and water was everywhere. If you couldn't see your ball you took a penalty and dropped another another one.
There were warning signs all along the fairways saying not to go near the water, because of the danger of alligators.

   Tulsa  The term birdbrain applies here.

And the bird gel sold at Wildbirds Unltd. works. We've used it on brick window ledges and on the top of the brick mail column.

We've had various bird problems, but when they started pooping on the front stoop that was too much. I searched the web and found numerous products and some ingenious ideas. Most said the deterrent had to move and be shiny. Not so.

We covered a piece of cardboard with wax paper and spread bird gel over it. Then we placed a large rock on the cardboard to keep it from flying off the stoop. Not a bird in over a week! They think it's a predator. Which we think is hilarious!

   Mildred  Hi Tulsa. I hadn't read this page recently and decided to check it out. I never heard of bird gel. I have a bird and bats that hang out (pun intended ) at my front door and this might just work for me. Since I had the house painted earlier this year, the birds and bats are hanging out somewhere else. If they return, I'll give this a try. I found several bird gels on Amazon. The comments say to apply it directly to the surface but I like your suggestion of spreading the gel on waxed paper. Thanks for the tip.

   Escaped commieny  Gators feed after dusk and it is mating season and they are fast. The little boy was snatched and that is a tragedy. Every body of water here has gators. After a day at Disney most tourists would be exhausted and in bed at 9:30 pm. Payers for the family.
Orlando has had more than our share of horror this week.

   FlatCityGirl  I could not understand why the alligator is still protected in Florida. Obviously, it is not endangered. A Floridian L.Dotter finally enlightened me: there is a small area in extreme South Florida where the American Crocodile, which is extremely endangered, is found. The Croc and the Gator look so much alike that it is almost impossible for all but experts to tell one from the other, and if hunting Gators is allowed, Crocs will also be killed.

I looked up photographs of the American Crocodile. Except for a more pointy snout and perhaps the placement of the eyes on the Croc, the two beasts do look almost exactly alike.

For the danger that it looks like the gators pose in Florida, I would declare open season on them, and if a few American Crocodiles got caught in the crossfire . . oh well.

   Escaped commieny  SD, how did Collin treat you ? I haven't heard from Phooey or Gram yet, we just had high winds and rain but Winter Park had a spot that was nailed. DH had his Maitland Dr today and everything looked OK and part of Volusia Co w/o power.

   Safetydude  Thank You for asking, Ec.

We had high winds and lot's o' rain but no damage in our community. The only damage I've heard about was beach erosion out on Manasota Key and a shed blown away in Sarasota.
I think, one more time, a bunch of TV weather guessers and other weather types went out of their way to gin up weather

I think the public has been made so complacent that no one takes the warnings seriously, any longer.
I've been a cynic for years and when, and if, it's time to bug out I'll make the decision by looking out the window, not by watching TV.

If you're interested, I'm going to post a little story about a trip to FL many years prior to us settling here, on the Coffee Klatch page.

   StormCnter  This has been around for a while, but maybe some haven't seen it. Baby bear being stalked by a mountain lion. It's almost four minutes long, but stay with it.

   BirdsNest  It was a good day. My neighbor was walking his Peke, actually "Cooper" was walking his master.... I got to pick him up and snuggle him. He had been clipped and bathed and he smelled so good. He was glad to see me,too. I love flat nose dogs.
