Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

Speak to the earth and it shall teach thee...and the birds of the air and they shall tell thee...Job 11: 7- 8

The cardinal may tell thee
From his perch on a tree,
With snow on the limb
And all around him....
"I've seen everything
On earth there is to see,
Except a warm spring..
But I wait for it patiently!"

Poetry by me AJP

    I agree with what Joe said - that bird definitely is looking like it is thinking "your kidding, right?". The snow looks like it is a wet snow that sticks well to the branches. I know how tired all of you are winter just going on and going on ... still, it is a beautiful snow and the Cardinal is outstanding!!!
