I'm at home today having what I refer to fondly as, "A Mental Health Day". The day basically consists of me doing as little as possible. I did, however, throw two pillows in the washing machine because they were looking rather yellow to me.About 10 minutes into the wash, the machine started that loud banging sound that it makes when an unbalanced load is present. Me, ever the opportunist, took this chance to see if what I've heard is true. That's right, I hopped right up there and sat on the washing machine.Let me disspell the rumors and urban legends right here and now. The washing machine will do nothing for you but wash your clothes.

I have a dilemma and seek the assistance of whomever is: 1) bored enough to have stumbled across this note in the first place, and 2) bored enough to still be reading this note.I have a hummingbird feeder in my front window. Pretty little hummingbirds visit it continuously throughout the day. I've been putting this feeder up for years but this year has seen the most visitors yet. The little guys have practically drained all the juice from the feeder already and we're only a month into spring. This juice was the store-bought kind, so this time, I considered making my own juice. It's just sugar water and food colouring right?

This is when I really started thinking. What was in the store-bought juice? Is it food colouring? My pause for concern is that this red food colouring must make the little guys pee red no? I don't want to freak them out by adding red food colouring if this is not the norm for them. If my pee suddenly turned red, I would surely be disturbed...

I guess I'm just throwing this out there to see if anyone has experience with hummingbird juice. Please feel free to share your insights.
