Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
February has finally arrived and the weeks of below-freezing night temperatures we endured in January
are behind us. Thank goodness! It has been years since we had a full week of below-freezing temps at
night, and then we got 2 of them in a span of only 3 weeks! Talk about watching your heating bills go up!!
My cement bird bath in the back yard froze the first freezing night of the first freezing week and never
thawed that entire first week of freezing temps. It doesn't get a lot of sun and the day temps simply
never got high enough to thaw the thick block of ice resting in the bowl of the cold cement. Fortunately
I have a fountain that kept moving thanks to the pump, so the birds and other critters still found water
available. Happily I still had enough cold weather clothes to last the week. One of the dichotomies of my
life is that I love cold weather clothes, but really don't like cold weather.
I hope all of you escaped the flu that was running rampant. I am astonished how many people came to
work sick with it. It was a deadly strain and not to be taken lightly.

email groups - Mensa Connect. There are communities for specific people (Local Secretaries, Proctors, etc.)
as well as general membership communities. Some of them are very active. If you are interested in
exploring the communities and perhaps getting involved with some of them, just log into the web site,
click the Connect link, and click the Mensa Connect link. You can opt to have the messages sent to you in
a digest, as they come in, or not at all and you only participate online in the community. the choice is
Hope to see you at an event soon.
