  1. This is one of the new stickers out now to put on your windows/glass doors to keep birds from flying into them. Since, you know, birds have gotten so complacent about the original little falcon silhouette stickers…..L.B.

  2. …..and I forgot to mention that, not only do these window stickers keep birds away(if, indeed, the birds can even find the windows after applying such), they also work equally well in repelling door-to-door salesmen, Jehovah's Witnesses, insurance inspectors, and most of your relatives. Well worth the purchase price, in other words(ahem!)…..L. B.

  3. LB- They should make 3-d plastic ones, too, to cut in on the fake plastic Great Horned Owl market. (I've heard those things only work for a day or two. A plastic raptor as big as a phone booth might work better.)

  4. ….I actually made a HUGE, very ANGRY-LOOKING(long before that "angry birds" thing) Cardinal out of red construction paper once(fully as big as a Red-Tailed Hawk!) to deter an annoyingly persistant male cardinal CONSTANTLY(for hours and hours!) fighting his reflection in one of the office windows at my workplace. I figured if I portrayed the baddest-ass cardinal that ever flew, it would scare the attacker off. It did, quite well, but only for a coupla weeks. I imagine the offending cardinal musta went out and took a karate' course or something, because then he came back and began attacking the giant cut out even more fervently than ever! Shade cloth over the window finally stopped his attacks…..L.B.

  5. L.B.- Haha, that's awesome. Come to think of it, my brother brought me back from India this scary red carving of a humanoid face. I hung it on the kitchen wall. Maybe it would keep annoying people away! At least until they punched it and discovered it wasn't real.=p

  6. ….I'd be careful with THE MASK, Moro. It might be one of those that if you put it on, you lose all your natural inhibitions, and get into all kinds of trouble……L.B.
