  Hi Sugar
OK! Mom and I were able to log on to BC on our very first try today! Hopefully that means they got the problem solved. Sure hope so, because Mom almost gave up on it yesterday.

Well, Mom is on page 561 of that 650 page book she is reading, but that's OK because it is only book one of a trilogy. Mom already has book two, so there is plenty of "reading in Kiddo's room" material on hand....and of course, there is always her kindle which is loaded.

No sunbath today! It is downright cold out there for So Cal at 56 degrees right now. They were calling for a high of 65 today, but it doesn't look like it is going to make it. And then Mom just had an Ensure for lunch after the gym instead of a wrap to share with me, but that's OK because it's Friday and that means take out for dinner. Mom will share hers with me for sure.

  Hi Sugar!
Wow, I really like your St. Patrick Day picture and avatar. Now Mama knows how to make shamrocks, since she can see how in your avatar. She just may copy that trick!

Not a lot going on here in WV. We had bunches of snow and ice and school has been delayed quite a bit because of it. Maybe when March gets here on Sunday the warmer weather will come with it. I sure hope so!

And you mentioned you like cranberry scones ~ I like them too! I love Craisens, I always have them in my little treat cup underneath my newspapers, so of course I would like cranberry scones. They are yummy!

Well, I hope you and Pippo have a wonderful weekend.

I think they will send Carmela to rehab for at least a week to 10 days before she can go home. She's worried about her birds, Trixie 2 and Bella, but I suspect Rose will see to them, or one of her kids will. They all love Nana so much.
We were surprised to see Divo as Angel of the Day today. Thanks for remembering him.
Mom was at the center this morning as usual, and had the RVS room to clean. There was only one groundhog in there today, as well as that mean raccoon, and 5 bats. The good news about the bats is they are all in one terrarium. That's also the bad news! It's hard to keep track of who's been fed, and the white out was nowhere to be found. They all ate, mom thinks. They are so cute when they drink, too. Mom gives them water in a 1cc oral syringe, and their little tongues just lap it up from the tip of the syringe.
After the center she went to the supermarket to get us fresh veggies and to get herself some juice. Tomorrow she has raptor class at the center, it will be on medical handling for raptors, we think. They might redo the mammal handling class, which is great, since mom missed it. She also told them already that she would miss next week's raptor class because that's the day she helps out at Biscuits Bingo. Hopefully they will do something to make sure mom qualifies for raptor handling, since she's been doing it for 13 years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Dad sure is busy driving all over the place. I bet he likes CA, though. Mom has never been in northern CA, but she loved the southern portion of the state when she visited.
That's so nice that Terra and her husband will be moving to NC. If they are not near Sam, maybe they'll be close to Raffikki or to the K Kritters.
We will see you tonight for story time. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

Dad's Special Movie Memory:
As kids we would get to a movie theater once in a while. Mostly for a Kids Matinee.
We almost never visited the Refreshment Stand. There was one special time which was an exception.
Dad was treated to a special movie with his Mom. They went without the rest of the family -and It was an evening showing, She even bought him popcorn. Can't recall if it was a Birthday or whatever - just that it was a special night.
The film was "MARY POPPINS", which, ever since has been a special movie for Dad.
We spoke earlier this month about how a few notes of music can make a movie-memory come sweeping back. Any music from ‘Mary Poppins’ makes Dad think of that special Movie Night with his Mom.

Come visit me, Flitzer loves Mary.

Does VODKA count as a medication?

Last night, pops took Mom to 5 Guys burgers and fries, for a quick dinner. they were just pulling in the driveway at home, and heard all kinds of fireworks going off. Pops wanted to know what idiot was doing that at this time of year. Well, he turned on the 10 o'clock news and the lead story, was there was a police involved shooting just minutes after they left. That place is just 1/2 mile from the house. If they would have been there another few minutes they would have been in the middle of it. R T

and the flock clean up after lunch they made and waddle off to the tv room.While Aunt Rose is off with Nana they stick close together praying all morning for Nana!It so helps that they are all together today!They pop in the Sound of Music and relax on the sofa and enjoy the movie!Their minds are all on Nana!
This morning was another cold morning here and it started snowing again a little after 10:00am this morning.Mom got us up and fed us and quickly cleaned our cages and swept our room a little as skin bro was on his way over to pick her up to take her to the hospital to be there in time for Nana's hip surgery.Mom had tried calling the hospital all morning to find out when the surgery was going to be and finally after being bounced around from one floor to the other she talked to someone who told her it would be at 1:00pm.Skin bro stopped at Nana's house to check on my cousins,Bella and Trixie II.Skin bro is taking really good care of them.Mom changed out their papers and skin bro gave Bella more to eat before we took off for the hospital.Mom had called her sister this morning to tell her about Nana and she met us at the hospital shortly after we got there.Nana was so tired as she got no sleep all last night because of the severe pain she was in and while Mom and skin bro were there they took more blood from her asked more medical history questions,gave her more meds for the severe pain she was in and then the surgeon came and marked her leg in purple ink that was to be operated on.She never got in at 1:00pm and it was sometime after 2:00pm that they finally brought her down to the OR.The dr told us it would be about an hour and a half for the surgery but Mom and her sister and skin bro were sitting in the waiting room for three and a half hours waiting for word.Mom and skin bro hadn't eaten anything all day and were quite tired and bored just sitting there waiting and worrying!When Nana finally came back from the OR the nurses did their thing with her again,blood pressure,temperature,etc.then Mom,her sister and skinbro could go in and see her.She was so nauseous and they had brought her a tray of jello,chicken broth,tea and apple juice but the nurse didn't want her to eat any of it so she told Mom and skinbro and her sister to eat it,skin bro had the apple juice,Mom's sis had the jello and Mom tried some of the chicken broth but didn't like it!Nana will be in the hospital for three more days and then by Sunday they will transport her to a rehab center,she doesn't want to go and if she has to go there Mom wants her to go to Spaulding in Sandwich and her sister wants her to go to JML.Nana sides with Mom if she has to go she'll chose Spaulding!Its been another really long day for Mom she's been at the hospital with nothing to eat or drink all day again and didn't get home til 7:00 tonight and my dad came home shortly after that!Then Mom had to get my dad something for dinner and they were having dinner by nine tonight,Mom gave him another heat

What's happenin' in WA t'day? *R checks his collection of weather widgets and sees that Pal. WA is having rain. He's not surprised.* So, it's wet n'gray out there, huh? I've got sunshine, blue skies and SNOW! Yup, another blanket of the white stuff. It's sort of pretty, even if everybody's complaining about it. I don't have t'shovel, plow and freeze so I don't care what happens out there.

I thought of you today during lunch; the cornbread with the black beans and green chili peppers brought you t'mind. I'm told it's gone now so hopefully I'll be smellin' a new batch bakin' before too long. It's actually been awhile since the McFlock had cornbread. Mom made a batch for us birds which inspired the guys to want some so she made them a skillet full of their own (without the ground-up eggshells). Those eggshells are how she keeps the humans from eating our bird food. The guys always ask now wether it's birdfood or human food in the fridge, 'cause they're afraid of eatin' something that's unusually crunchy.

Hope your day's a sweet one.

  Hi Sugar,

How are you? It's Oz. Sorry I haven't been on much. My Mom had her procedure on Tues. She just feels a bit better but can get another shot in 2 - 3 weeks. IF that doesn't work, she's gonna need surgery & she's hoping not "Too". So please tell your Mommy to say some prayers for her. I know Mom would really appreciate that. So did your Dad get back from his trip, yet? Hope all is well on your end. We're hanging in there & waiting for our Mom to get better. Here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye for now.

Mom thinks it took 3 or 4 weeks to get here, so your Bird Talk will arrive, just be patient. There's a good article about conures in there, so be sure to read all about us!
Please keep Carmela Cannata, Rose's mom(Dixie, Kallie, Peepers), in your thoughts and prayers. She fell and broke her hip, you can see details on the calendar page.
We are doing a very short c/p today because mom just got back from the eye doctor. She didn't need a shot today, which is great news. She does have dilated eyeballs, though, which is not fun. It always takes a long time for her eyes to get back to normal after the visits to the specialist. She thinks they use something stronger than what her normal eye doc uses.
I hope you are having a warm day, full of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Popeye.
Dad was finally able to finish the front yard. This time he cut it real close so he can spread the "Weed and Feed" stuff all over the yard. He's going to get this contraption that holds a whole bag of stuff and the bag clamps to it so dad doesn't have to hold the bag and try to dump it into the hopper. Good thing, cuz the last time he did this he got it all over the driveway. We tried to tell him that it won't make the driveway grow but dad never listens to us. They are saying that there will be more rain this weekend. Dad wants to get this done before it rains. Good luck, Dad.
Today will be clear, with a high of 74 and a low of 50. Mom and dad are going to the movies today.

  Hi, Sugar
Think we read that Jennifer is a foster daughter to your parronts. Skinsis HS boyfriend was a foster child and no one thought anything of it or treated him different. Think his parronts were no longer a couple and neither were able to care for him but okay on their own. Hopefully Jennifer's dad will make a full recovery.

Yup, mom took that pic at our house. We don't have carpet so used some floor pads covered with an old blanket to make a play area. She is such a sweetie. Mom got another pic yesterday but via cellphone so might take awhile to download and post. She thinks it might be a smiling one (she hopes it is!).

  Flitzer on Winners and Classics
Kiddo raised an interesting topic: Films that did Not win The Academy Award for 'Best Picture', but they are now classics, many times surpassing the Oscar-winning film.
--
in the Awards Game there has to be a winner, and losers. There will be endless discussion as to outcomes, but only time makes a film a true Classic.
A couple of examples:
--
The Year: 1941. The Oscar-Winning film, "How Green was My Valley" [a personal favorite and a wonderful film], but the nominee that did not get the award was "Citizen Kane" which many feel is one of the Greatest Films Ever Made.
--
The Year: 1952. The Oscar-Winning Film, "The GreatestShow on Earth"
...same year as "High noon" and "The Quiet Man"
--
The Year: 2005. The Oscar-Winning Film, "Crash"
...same year as "Brokeback Mountain", a film which many consider a Classic.
= = =
Will this year's winner, "Birdman", remain considered the Best of the year?
or will “American Sniper”, "Boyhood" or even "The Grand Budapest Hotel" be remembered...only time will tell.

Mom is very upset,she just got back from the hospital,Nana fell today in her driveway while Shiloh was trying to shovel it for her and she broke her hip,she's going to have surgery tomorrow morning and Mom has no idea when she'll be back on BC for us.Mom hated to leave her in the hospital,they didn't have a room for her so Mom and Anthony and Shiloh had to leave her in the emergency room.She's in bad pain and the morphine made her sick.I'm so sorry this is so short,Mom can't think,she can't even get in touch with Nana at the hospital and has to try calling again in 15 minutes,they were at the hospital since late this afternoon,couldn't move her off the floor,Anthony helped to carry her out to his car,her left leg was in severe pain.I'm so sorry,Anthony is going to pick Mom up in the morning after he gets home from work to go back up for the surgery and be with her.My dad wanted to take time off from work to drive Mom around to the hospital but Anthony will take her.
Please forgive me for being so short,its so late and Mom is so upset and beside herself and so worried about Nana.

Mom has been busy with her errands and cooking and shoveling and such, and she didn't have time to enter her password 54 times like the BC wanted, so we have been on hiatus awhile...But all is well here. We continue the destruction of the tissue box...Mom will put up some new pix soon...

  Hi Sugar
We got our Bird Talk with points, and it came the other day. Mom is so far just looking at it, but I think she'll love the conure article, hahaha.
At the wildlife center there was some bad news today. The center lost Cy, one of the education owls. The little grey phase screech owl was brought to us a few years ago after having fallen (or been pushed) from his nest. He had some neurological problems and was missing an eye, so he couldn't be released. He became one of our dear education animals. Lately though, he's been having more seizures and they've been getting worse, so the decision was made to put him down to save him further suffering. It's always sad when they decide to euthanize an animal there, but one with a name whom everyone has worked with is almost unbearably sad. Mom cried this morning when she read the email, and is still kind of dripping. Cy is okay now, we know, and is whole and healthy once again. Fly free, little Cyclops, we'll all miss you.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of cuddles and scritches (and warmth). Hugs, Falco and the boys

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Sugar
We are all sorry to hear about Jennifer's dad, hope he recovers and maybe changes his diet, at least. If he's able to move, it might be a good idea for him to move to FL with his wife. She may be able to see that he eats properly. We are sending prayers and hoping for the best. We will see you tonight for story time. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  ad to go to work right then.We got 4 more inches of new snow,so what was melted is now all covered up again!Mom gets called on by Anthony and his dad to cut their hair all the time.They used to go to the salon but when Mom was asked to do it she tried and Anthony liked it so he has had Mom cut his hair ever since and then dad did the same.Dixie tells Sugar that this has been the best time ever having Sugar staying with him and his flock,she has really kept all their minds off the snow and cold,she always knows how to get them to smile!
Before long the friends are yawning and stretching their wings and know its time for bed!Dixie gives Sugar a kiss good night and cuddles under her wing.They say their prayers and add a special prayer just for Nana.And one for Mario too!Dixie has his own special prayers for Sugar!He thanks the Lord each and everyday for having Sugar as his warm wonderful loving friend and he can't ever imagine his life without her in it!He knows just how blessed he is for being able to be with Sugar every day!Sugar means the world to him!He loves her so very much!
Sleep tight and sweet dreams Bird Of My Heart!I love you more than there are stars in the sky and wider than the ocean is deep!

  Sugar and Dixie
bid the flock good night and waddle over to the platform!After another wonderful day spent together they are ready to get some sleep,so they snuggle close together and Dixie opens the Hello Kitty Lunch Box and takes out some tiny cinnamon rolls for their snack tonight!As Sugar fills two mugs with cocoa with cream for them he sets the rolls on napkins for them!They begin nibbling on the rolls and take sips from the cocoa as Sugar starts reading them from the book she has for them tonight!
This story is called "Saturday with Daddy".A little elephant is looking forward to spending the day with his daddy.He's the first one up and he runs into his parents bedroom and tells them to "rise and shine".They all go downstairs for a pancake breakfast and after breakfast the little elephant and his dad take off and go to the market.They sing with the radio in the car!They get hot dogs and marshmallows at the market because they are going to have a cookout!Then they stop at the hardware store next to choose a new grill.The little elephant loves the red one the best.After they get home the little elephant helps his daddy put the grill together,then his daddy lights the grill and makes a wonderful lunch for them all!The little elephant loves eating outside because if you spill anything it doesn't matter!When they are done with lunch,his daddy stirs up the coals and they roast the marshmallows!The little elephant loves how gooey they get!Then his Mom tells him its time for a nap and he and his dad climb into the hammock!Saturdays with daddy are little elephants most favorite day of the whole week!
Sugar and Dixie love the rolls and the cocoa and they both agree that a special day with their dad's is the best ever.Dixie so agrees with Sugar that he just can't wait to have a cookout again with his dad,he just loves being on the deck and getting a taste of all the good grilled veggies and chicken.He just can't wait for the weather to start getting warmer again!They both have smiles on their beaks just thinking of it!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and she gets Dixie's feet up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and they talk about their day!Dixie is so worried about Jennifer's dad and is so relieved that he is stable now.Poor Jennifer must be so upset with all that is happening with her dad!Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her dad so he will recover quickly.She must've been so scared!Its good that her grandparents are coming from Florida to be with her and its good that her sister is there with her also to stay with.Please give Jennifer all our love her and let her know we are praying for her dad to get better fast.That is so upsetting to have to see your dad like that.Mom will put his name in the special intentions book at church for more prayers for healing and peace from pain.
Dixie tells Sugar that it snowed here again in the early morning hours and his dad was supposed to go to work at 3:00am but the phone rang at 12:30am and he h

  Oh Sugar
Give Jennifer our prayers ! Truly a happy humpday ! RT hit my 30k this morning ! Although it is exciting, I must say the friendships forged here are so much more important to my little green heart !

We're supposed to hit freezing today ! I don't think it's going to melt anything though . . . at least there's nothing more than flurries in the forecast for the next few days :)

I've been very cranky the last few days - between hormones and pin feathers, I've been squawking a lot ! Mom tried to get me to take a bath last night, but I don't want anything she does ! ha !

Have a great day and if you get a chance to play Name that Tune (231616) go give it a wing ! But dress warmly, it's chilly over there ! LOL ! love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie - on the lookout, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Flitzer Wednesday Thoughts . . .
Still in "Recovery-Mode" from Hollywood's Big Night.

--
Some of you BirdChannel friends have expressed that they don't watch The Oscars.
Dad doesn't really like the Hollywood Glamor-thing and some of the industry politics,
but we do love movies.
--
Often we are disappointed with what films and actors win the awards. That is all a part of the game. We often look back on past years with a knowing smirk, realizing that the movies we liked best that year are the ones that are still being watched and appreciated.
--
All that being said, we do like tuning in that one night a year, when Hollywood goes all-out and celebrates the talent, work and yes, the tackiness of The Hollywood Movie Machine.
~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer loves Mary.
