Pluto, Is it a Planet or a Piece of Star Dust?

The hype is up on Pluto. Apparently they have found mountains on the surface of the tiny planet. I don’t know why they are so excited about the finding. Isn’t there a mountain range of some sort on our own moon. So, the planet must have some movement of it’s solid surface, whatever that may be.

 

I want to know why they changed the planet’s status from being a planet of our solar system like I had been taught in school back in the 70’s and 80’s.

 

Next they are going to tell us that there are inhabitants on the planet. Little stardust fairies are living underground waiting to board their spaceships to travel too our world and rob our resources. Oh hold on, we’re doing that to ourselves anyways.

 

Tell me, what happens if we continue to remove all the oil from within the earth? Will it collapse on itself? I’ve heard that they fill these wells back up with water, but I can’t imagine that water staying put. It eventually evaporates, doesn’t it?

 

Pluto is so far away from the sun. I find it hard to believe that anything could live in those kinds of conditions. Except for maybe the Others from the Game of Thrones. They like it cold, don’t they?

 

I’m on book 4 of the Game of Thrones, and still waiting to find out where the Others come from. Could be it is a portal from the planet/start dust Pluto.

 

I like GRRM writing. I love the books. My favorite characters are Tyrion, Arya, Jon Snow, and of course Daenerys Targaryen. I’m really hoping that the rumor of Jon Snow’s death in the last episode of Season 5 HBO series isn’t true. Did they kill Ghost? Don’t they have to kill the beast to kill the warg?

 

I see there is a new book out. Book 6. I will find it hard to believe that there will be anyone left alive when I get to that book.

 

Bird Feeder and Thirds

Bird House

This birdfeeder is the best. All the squirrels and chipmunks hate the thing since they haven’t once been able to rob it. The feeder was purchased at the Tractor Supply Store and was reasonably priced. It was a Christmas gift given to my DH. He loves it! When and if, a squirrel or chipmunk makes it to the perch, their weight causes the spring controlled cover to close making the food inaccessible. The roof, itself, keeps them at bay.

Last year we used a conventional feeder. No matter what we did, we couldn’t stop those critters from taking all the seed. The older dog didn’t help matters. She won’t chase them. Apparently they are her friends. Every time we would try to shoo them away from the feeder she would take to barking at us, not the pesky rodents.

Keelaa, on the other hand, loves to chase those squirrels and chipmunks. She’s pretty fast too. One day she managed to run up the hill before the squirrel and was waiting for it. I guess that critter was in a bit of shock to find a little dog waiting for it. That squirrel ran up the nearest tree, complaining the whole time.
