    The Big Bird and Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

    VERY clever! When I have to stop fostering Cairn Terriers I'll have a nice 24x18x20" crate to use. It's one of the old galvanized crates. I'm sure my chickadees, tufted titmouse, cardinals, & white-breasted nuthatches etc. will be thrilled to go in for sunflower seeds. i'll bet the downy woodpecker would go in for suet too. BUT will it keep the sparrows out?

    How to pit cherries

    When my husband and I pitted cherries in quantity we found a paperclip to work the best for us. However, we used a deluxe paperclip. <g> Either buy a package of popsicle sticks from a craft store or save them when you eat frozen treats. Put your paperclip inside two popsicle sticks with 1/2 to 2/3 sticking out and continue adding popsicle sticks until you have a handle that is comfortable in your hand. Tape together with masking or packing tape and start pitting. This will make pitting cherries easier for older folks who might have some arthritis in their hands.
