* Much love to all * … Cathleen

Well geeze Cathleen, that was a unexpectedly nice way to start off this fine day today, thankyou 🙂
You’re welcome! A little something to lighten the spirit.
. . .
A welcome listen this morning Cathleen. I saw Steve Miller at the Met in the Twin Cities. I think it was the Jetairliner Tour. The Eagles were the headliner with the Hotel California tour. One hell of concert!
Oh ya … they are awesome in concert. The Steve Miller band has (or had in the past) a recording studio in Oregon near Grants Pass/Medford, Oregon area.

Quick facts I found!
Bald Eagles are found in North America.
The Great Seal of the United States features a bald eagle.
The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States.
Although their name suggests otherwise, bald eagles are not bald.
Female bald eagles are larger than male bald eagles.
Bald eagles eat mostly fish, swooping down to the water and catching them with their powerful talons.
Bald eagles live for around 20 years in the wild.
Bald eagles build very large nests, sometimes weighing as much as a ton!
The bald eagle was added to the list of endangered species in the United States in 1967 and its numbers have recovered well since.
I learned something new today. Thanks Mark!

I think I read somewhere that Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be our National bird. Maybe that lightning flowing down his kite string fried a few too many neurosynaptic junctions.
Millard @ 11:44. Yep one of those guys said they didn`t wan`t a eagle because it was a scavenger type bird much like a vulture. I think I remember reading something like that some time ago lol 🙂
An ancient Chinese philosopher (not Confucius so it might have been Lao-Tzu) said, “Never trust a nation which uses an eagle as its emblem.”
This was hundreds of years before the height of Rome and more than two thousand years before the US and the Nazis. Others too. So he did have vision.
Interesting Mick, Franklin was a genius and maybe he understood something about symbolism that most can’t comprehend. Who’s to say.
