    I've been taking up bird watching

    First step in making cakes is BACON
    Low sodium bacon because it's bad for the birds

    since I moved here to country I seen all kinds of birds that I never seen in the city
    I never seen a humming bird in person before until I moved here
    long I am on a low carb diet I am not going to save that grease and make some Suet Cakes and make one of flower thingies for the humming birds

    thanks man
    It happened before, it can happen again.
    It happened there, it can happen here.
    It happened to that person, it can happen to you.

    I save left over seeds from making jam. I just throw them in the freezer and use them the following fall. I have saved raspberry seeds. grape seeds and even grape skins. Birds love them
