The differences between the Mourning dove and the White winged dove.

The dove pictured above is a mourning dove and the dove pictured below are white winged dove. The white winged doves habitat is normally south Texas and Mexico during the winter, and all of Texas and parts of Louisiana during the summer.

The habitat of the morning dove is the southern half of the United States and Mexico during the winter and almost all of the United states during the summer.  Both types of doves normally build their nests in bushes and lay 2 eggs.

I am now back in TEXAS

It is good to be back now in the GREAT STATE of TEXAS and somehow

Welcome to TEXAS,  y'all

Welcome to TEXAS, y’all

I don’t even mind the HOT HUMID weather anymore. It was great to be in California for a few months but it is even better to be back home  here in Harlingen TEXAS in the Rio Grande Valley.

reserving a computer in Harlingen Public Library

Image

Every afternoon right after work I walk to Harlingen Public Library to get online. Sometimes all the computers are full and one has to make a reservation on the reservation computer.Usually the reservation computer will assign a computer for you to use within 5-15 minutes.

Image

Every  person who uses a computer in the Harlingen Public Library signs in with their Library card. They are assigned a time of 45 minutes but after their time is up if their are still computers available they can get extra time in 15-minute intervals assuming there are still computers available. In the event that all the computers are occupied then you will not be asked for extra time.  If a person arrives at the Library  to use the computers and all the computers are occupied then by making a reservation on the reservation computer you will be assigned a computer to use and the time that the computer will be available. 

Image

By making a reservation you are effectively bumping someone off of one of the computers and preventing them from extending their time. Of course, they have already used all of their computer allocated time of  45minutes, but perhaps they would have liked additional time.  Normally, however, there are a few computers available and no one needs to get bumped off.  Saturday and Sunday afternoons, however, are normally full, so their will be plenty of people making reservations to use the computer.
