The Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act (CALM)

At long last, we will hopefully get some much anticipated relief from having to jump for the remote to lower the sound volume when a television commercial airs while watching TV.

On December 15th, 2009, the House of Representatives passed The Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act (CALM) by voice vote!

The Act enables the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to monitor the volume of advertisements in television programming and determine acceptable levels.

C’mon folks… no takers?

In my miniscule mind, I would have thought one of you out there would have something to say here,

as outspoken (ahem) as some of you are

and still, nothing.

The bird feeder…

So I was wondering why all of a sudden I had to refill my new bird feeder on a daily basis. Initially, a refill would last some 4-5 days. Then the squirrels found out about it and the refill frequency dwindled to 2-3 days.

Lately the feeder has been empty each morning. Last night, I happened to flip on the back deck light and peer outside before retiring to bed and noticed a couple of visitors under the bird feeder... rather large visitors, I might add. There were 2 absolutely beautiful does helping themselves to whatever they could, both in and out of the feeder.

At last the mystery is solved, and as far as I can tell, there at least has not been a visit from a bear yet. How do I know? I'm only guessing this because the feeder is still intact and hanging off of the deck.
