Chris Young New CD...Health Great!

CHRIS YOUNG CELEBRATES LATE NIGHT WITH A.M. Join Chris in the Countdown Nashville, TN – ‘Nothing good happens after midnight’ goes the old adage. But RCA Records singer songwriter Chris Young has a different opinion entirely. “There’s plenty of great stuff that happens after midnight,” says Chris. “People have a good time, fall in love, work through problems and relationships, lots of good things happen after midnight and that’s why we called the album A.M.” Chris recognizes all of those aspects with the September 17 release of his new album, A.M.. The title track, written by Chris with pals Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley, celebrates the party side of late night. “A.M. is a big fun ode to, we’re having fun, it’s past midnight and it’s on,” laughed Chris. “I love hanging out with friends, having fun, playing music, and that happens a lot in the wee hours.” “Goodbye,” another song on the album, acknowledges the relationship dynamic that happens in the late night. “In ‘Goodbye,’ th

The Red Headed Woodpecker These birds fly to catch insects in the air or on the ground, forage on trees or gather and store nuts. They are omnivorous, eating insects, seeds, fruits, berries, nuts, and occasionally even the eggs of other birds.[4] About two thirds of their diet is made up of plants.[4] They nest in a cavity in a dead tree, utility pole, or a dead part of a tree that is between 8 and 80 feet (2.5 to 25 m) above the ground.[4] They lay four to seven eggs in early May which are incubated for two weeks.[4] Two broods can be raised in a single nesting season.[4] Northern birds migrate to the southern parts of the range, with most having arrived on the breeding range by late April, and having left for winter quarters by late October;[9][10] southern birds are often permanent residents. The Red-headed Woodpecker is a once common but declining bird species found in southern Canada and east-central United States. Consistent long-term population declines have resulted in Red-h

Proud as a Peacock

I've seen it on the NBC logo..seen a lot of peacocks...never seen one do this..spray those feathers out...oh yeah: peacocks fan out their feathers as part of a courtship ritual to attact a mate.I took all these recent animal pictures at the Olympic Animal Farm near Sequim,Washington not far from Seattle The male (peacock) Indian Peafowl has iridescent blue-green or green colored plumage. The peacock tail ("train") is not the tail quill feathers but the highly elongated upper tail covert feathers. The "eyes" are best seen when the peacock fans its tail. Like a cupped hand behind the ear, the erect tail-fan of the male helps direct sound to the ears.[citation needed] Both species have a crest atop the head. The female (peahen) Indian Peafowl has a mixture of dull green, brown, and grey in her plumage. Although she lacks the long upper tail coverts of the male, she has a crest. The female also displays her plumage to ward off female competition or signal
