You know the drill. Spring is here and young male's thoughts turn to:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/108305.jpgHe loves to show off those tail feathers! The girls do not pay much attention to the poor guy, though.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/108306.jpgWomen are all the same!The house is on a ridge, so the peacock spends his time on the terrace where he has a great view.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/108307.jpgAnd, of course, everyone can see him up there.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/108308.jpgBaby peachicks soon to come, next episode in May when they hatch.Best regards.Luis

The lake is frozen from November till about April. The swans show up a little later-stay most of the summer-then vacate for a month-return-then vacate when it freezes again. Wish I could do the same!As for winter sports-some use it that way, with hockey, ice fishing, and ice skating. Me-I prefer to watch from a warm house-and really would like to be retired in a nice warm climate like where you live (it must be my native San Diego genes at work).Those peacocks look great!http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/rxp-pilot.jpg

Geof,I lived in Florida for 24 years. Enough was enough of that. Too many people, especially in the winter months when the "snow birds" came south for the season. The house I built near Stuart, Florida in 1993 got hit by the eyes of both hurricanes last year. It survived quite nicely with no damage, but all the trees in the yard were blown down. The screens over the pool were all blown out, but the structure that held the screens remained in place. I sold the place in August 2001 so it is not my problem. It was well built to code after Hurricane Andrew.I now live about 25 miles from where I grew up (Dalton, Georgia). The winter here is usually mild, with some temps that occasionally go down in the teens and twenties, but not very often, and not for long. Snow comes maybe once or twice in winter, but never lasts more than a day.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN
