Spookiesmom: I read but do not post on that thread either. I agree with your solution and am so tired of the convoluted, meaningless rants of some posters. One poster months ago spent days posting about a healthcare scare, using losts of projection and convoluted analogies because they were afraid of another cancer and dying, yet claims not to be antivax, but anti-mandates, loss of liberty, etc. Makes me want to scream but not to waste my breath.

Agree, Alice.

Elderberry, maybe the crow is warning you and offering protection. I finally like wild birds up close again. Many years ago, I was renting the third floor of my sister's house that she and her husband were rehabbing. The old windows hadn't been worked on yet. One night when I was sleeping, one of the windows on my floor fell out completely. I didn't hear it, but awoke to two birds tangled up in my hair and wildly flapping their wings. My screaming must have raised the entire neighborhood. 😳😱😵

Oh, here's a shirt I came across that some of you might like. No birds, just attitude.
