Chicken Delight

As promised- a short post to show some very new chick photos from last night.
But first- a neighbor of ours-

A delightful pic stolen from NICK CAIN (below)'s here because of the chart that some of us were looking at this morning showing various world powers and their relative "bank accounts", which had USA at the bottom of the chart, with the biggest deficit of all.
And 3,500 solidiers dead in Iraq so far and counting...

Anyone else notice how this country's press isn't paying much attention to "super-cyclonic storm" GONU ? Hmmmm. And it's heading right for the world's most busy oil supply port. And it's taking that area to the cleaners, since they're not built for it.
Bad chicky- No! Don't peck our house!

"The first dream that one has in a new house, or when sleeping under a new quilt, will nearly always come true--many mountain girls are anxious to "dream out" a new quilt or coverlet. The same may be said of a dream related before breakfast, or of one dreamed on Friday and told on Saturday:
Friday night's dream, on Saturday told,
Will always come true, no matter how old.
Some people are accustomed to place a knife under the dreamer's pillow, to prevent nightmares. I once noticed a small girl, not more than ten years old, sleeping with the handle of an enormous homemade bowie knife sticking out from under her pillow. "Maizie used to wake up a-hollerin'," the mother told me, "but since I put that knife under the piller, we ain't had no more trouble."

More ground-level portraits of the birdies.

I think this is the rarest one we have--it looks like that fella with the extra toes and the turkey-shaped head.

"... There is, then, something which is always moved with an unceasing motion, which is motion in a circle; and this is plain not in theory only but in fact. Therefore the first heaven must be eternal. There is therefore also something which moves it. And since that which is moved and moves is intermediate, there is something which moves without being moved, being eternal, substance, and actuality. And the object of desire and the object of thought move in this way; they move without being moved. The primary objects of desire and of thought are the same. For the apparent good is the object of appetite, and the real good is the primary object of rational wish. But desire is consequent on opinion rather than opinion on desire; for the thinking is the starting-point. And thought is moved by the object of thought, and one of the two columns of opposites is in itself the object of thought; and in this, substance is first, and in substance, that which is simple and exists actually. (The one and the simple are not the same; for "one" means a measure, but "simple" means that the thing itself has a certain nature.) But the beautiful, also, and that which is in itself desirable are in the same column; and the first in any class is always best, or analogous to the best."
Aristotle, The First Cause
