Believe or not, the first time spotted her/him, it was sitting near the of a popular directly behind the house. However I totally lucked out while I was out driving along Whiskey Ditch Rd. I happed to spot the owl as it flew directly toward my position. I stopped my truck, watched as the bird as it made it's way closer to my position. As luck would have, it landed on an old pole along side the road. As they say, "the rest is history"!

Anyway, this was a 1st for Stu! It was the first time tha I had ever been that close to a Northern Hawk Owl!

One more thing. Squeak at them like a mouse and hear' the response,LOL!

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
