Am I one of the X-men?

Just saw the new X-man movie last night and while I'm not usually a fan of the comic book type movies, I do like the X-man series.  They are usually smart and very, very creative.  Except for the blue (Beast) a hulk like X-man most, of them are pretty cool looking.

I am however, beginning to think that maybe I should be included in their little troupe. Lately whenever I walk into a room electronic things go on the blink.  Yes, the remote on the TV gets squirrely, the computer can't find the wifi, and the light bulbs go out.  Maybe I'm haunted but I've been kidding around with my husband and telling him that I am just one of the X-men and I have powers that will need Charles Xavier to steer me in the right direction.

My abilities have no bounds.  We walked down a sidewalk and the alarms on two cars we passed (on my side) started sounding.  Personally I don't know what use I can be since breaking things isn't really a super power but maybe I could be a secret weapon of some sort.  Enough about me.

You will enjoy the new X-man movie, it's really very good!  It's time travel theme is unique setting it apart from the usual summer blockbuster that just relies on special effects and CGI without any story line.

Racoon go home!

Hummers not appearing 

You know I have been feeding birds for years.  I've never had a problem with raccoons before, squirrels yes but never raccoons until now that is.  My frustration is mounting while this furry raider comes no matter what I do and drains both the seed feeder and the hummingbird feeders every single night!

I can take the feeders in and put them in the garage every night for a week and leave it out one night and by morning he has put his germy mouth all over them and they are empty.  Hummingbirds that are usually are fighting for space on my deck are all but absent this year!

He's scattered my pots of mint all over the much for raccoons hating mint!  And I have even stood there by the sliding doors and chased him numerous times but the persistent thing just comes back minutes later.  It's like a war, and who is going to give up first.  It's stating to look like it will be me!

Last night we had a thunderstorm and I figured that I would just leave the feeders out.  Sure enough they were empty in the morning.  It's starting to make me very sad because I am truly thinking of giving up, raising the white flag, retiring the feeders, and put aside my enjoyable pastime of watching the birds.

But wait...maybe I can figure out a way to make some sort of baffle.  Will it baffle me or the coon...time will tell.
