Ellen: Twitter Heron Problem

Ellen wants Twitter followers to give her advice about her heron problem.

Nothing is working so far, but she is thinking about using an audience dancer to scare it away, since Herons are scared of sudden movements and loud noises. Today’s audience Dancer of the Day was Matt Wilson.

Ellen: #EllensDamnHeron Twitter Solutions

Ellen said she asked her Twitter followers for advice on dealing with her Heron problem. One suggested stringing fishing line above the pond. But she is afraid that will deter the ducks she enjoys having as visitors to her pond.

Ellen: JC Penney Flash Mob

Ellen is the new spokesperson for JC Penney department stores, and her involvement has been making headlines. The conservative group One Million Moms called for a boycott of the stores in light of Ellen’s gig there, saying that she does not promote family values.

“My haters are my motivators,” Ellen remembered saying at the time. Eventually, the group gave up their protest and admitted defeat.

Ellen said that the JC Penney brouhaha inspired some passionate fans to stage a flash mom in support of Ellen at their local mall. She showed a clip from their dance video, which would be a great way to break up a mundane day at the mall.

JC Penney has got to be thrilled with all the free publicity they are getting out of this endorsement deal with Ellen. Do you think Ellen is a controversial figure?

Ellen: DJ Tony’s Parking Problems

Recently Ellen has been pointing out DJ Tony’s inability to properly park in his assigned space. This week, she put hidden cameras up to watch Tony parking. His excuse for not making it in the lines is that he parks against a building and would have trouble getting out of his driver’s side door.

“I have never seen a worse parking job in my life,” Ellen said, proving that she has never been to a Walmart. DJ Tony even tried to correct his first bad parking attempt, only to park in exactly the same spot.

    Herons like to fish alone so try placing fake herons around. Should scare away herons and keep ducks safe!

    Ellen
    We have had the same problem. Last year our DAMN Heron ate 17 of our fish. My husband came home from work and I was crying. He thought some one Died! I said they did our fish our gone except for 3. We have a water fall and lots of places for them to hide. But only 3 lived. I told my husband to put a blow up toy (No not that kind) It was our grand daughters bumble bee floatie.IT Worked The Damn Heron stayed away.
    We have a yard service they thought I was taking a swim.
    The next year we bought glass balls of all colors, we have about 20 of them. We have a friend who interned under chulie (excuse the spelling of his name but he is from Seattle and has an eye patch. ) our pond is so pretty and the glass balls are held down with a fish line and a weight. Im not sure if that would bother the ducks. BUT IM WITH YOU THEY MAY BE VERY PRETTY BIRDS BUT I HATE THE DAMN THINGS.
    I LOVE YOU AND YOUR SHOW! My husband watches you every day. He just retired after 41 years in the Army. He is a chief warrant officer W5. UPON HIS RETIREMENT HE RECIEVED THE LEGION OF MERRRIT IT IS THE 4TH MEDAL UNDER THE WAS DEPLOYED TO IRAQ 2 TIMES. HE RECIEVED 2 BRONZE STARS FOR HIS TOURS. I HAD JUST READ IN THE ARMY TIMES THAT ONLY 149 PEOPLE HAVE RECIEVED IT IN THE LAST 11 YEARS. HE HATES ME TO TELL PEOPLE BUT HE IS SO HUMBLE. HE WAS MY FIRST DATE AND I HAVE NEVER HAD ANOTHER ONE. WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED 41 YEARS AND HAVE 2 CHILDREN. WE WERE MARRIED YOUNG BUT TO MOST PEOPLES SURPRIZE WE DID NOT HAVE TO GET MARRIED. YOUR SON WAS BORN 3 AND 1/2 YEARS LATER. OUR DAUGHTER 3 YEARS AFTER OUR SON. HE WORKS FOR A NON PROFIT ORG. AND ALI OUR DAUGHTER IS A DOCTOR. I LOVE TO SAY THAT SHE HATES ME TELLING PEOPLE.IM PROUD OF BOTH OF THEM. OUR SON IS A SINGLE FATHER THE MOTHER OF HIS DAUGHTER AN GIRLFRIEND PASSED AWAY I HER SLEEP WHEN ABY WAS 2 YEARS OLD. THREE DAYS AFTER HER SECOND BIRTHDAY. ABY WILL BE 6 ON THE 22ND OF THIS MONTH.NONE OF THAT HAD A THING TO DO WITH THE DAMN HERON. BUT THERE ARE FEW PEOPLE LIKE US ANY MORE. I JUST THOUGHT LIKE SHARING MY LIFE . SORRY MY TYPING SUCKS. I HAVE HAD 42 SURGERYS AND MY FINGERS ARE NUMB. ITS REALLY HARD TO TYPE AS YOU CAN TELL. HA HA

      Hi Cathie,

      Thanks for sharing your story. We aren’t affiliated with Ellen or her show; we’re just big fans like you and your husband.

      I’m glad you had luck getting herons out of your yard. Maybe your tips will work for other people as well.
