The Hottest Product in the Wild Bird Feeder Market (is the claim)
After years of development and testing, Droll Yankees (the manufacturer of the Yankee Flipper) is proud to offer the most effective squirrel-proof bird feeder in the world. If you have birds in your backyard, you will want to see this thing in action.
It is HILARIOUS!
Unlike other squirrel-proof bird feeders the Yankee Flipper is based on the revolutionary concept. This concept prevents the neighboring squirrels from monopolizing your backyard bird feeder. Most feeders attempt to block access to the bird seed from the squirrels. The Flipper sends squirrels flying. Although the Yankee Flipper is a bit more costly than most feeders, you will save the difference in cost of bird seed in just a few weeks (depending on how many and what type of birds are in you abode)
This award-winning bird feeder is considered the most entertaining and effective squirrel proof feeder in the world.
Remember that this feeder has motorized parts .. there are a few more precautions when using this bird feeder. Remember to keep the Yankee Flipper out of reach of children and pets. Do not immerse the base, power-stick or charger of the Yankee Flipper birdfeeder in water.
After charging the charger fill the feeder with sunflower seed, safflower, sunflower hearts, or your favorite specialty mix. Premium black oil sunflower seed is highly recommended as it is very nutritious and attracts the widest variety of birds.
Hang your feeder securely on a rigid hook. Attach a Droll Yankees Locking Chain for added security.

Tea is gaining in popularity as people are aging and becoming more health conscious in Michigan.
This article is a tribute to all the fine tea houses in Michigan.
One of the reasons that tea is gaining in popularity is that steeped tea has the ability to stimulate the body and mind, while at the same time, helping to prevent anxiety. As we age and develop more responsibilities in life (teenage kids, aging parents, troubled economy) - keeping anxiety in check is more and more important.
Tea contains both energizing properties (caffeine) and relaxing properties (theanine). Tea can be sipped to energize in the morning and enjoyed to de-stress in the evening. Tea acts as a “ying-yang” balancer to your system, which makes it a good refresher to indulge in at any time of the day.
Tea is one of the best sources of flavonoids in the American diet. Flavonoids act as anti-oxidants within the body, working to neutralize free radicals by combining with them chemically before they can cause damage. Medical scientists believe that free radicals can cause damage to many parts of the body and contribute to chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
The flavonoids present in tea are called catechins in green tea, and
The difference between the catechins in green tea and the theaflavins in black tea is a result of the processing of the tea leaves. Very little oxidation of green tea leaves versus full oxidation of black tea leaves in the process is the main cause.
Although the flavonoids in both types of tea contain healthful properties, those found in green tea have been proven to contain more powerful anti-oxidant properties than those found in black tea – between two to eight times as much.
Bottled teas contain fewer anti-oxidant properties for the simple reason that they contain very little tea, and mostly water and sugar.
Enjoy your tea this summer and make sure you visit a Michigan Tea House or purchase online from our great retailers.
