  Hey Sugar
I wish I could distribute this heat to my BC family who are living in cold states and they can distribute their cold weather to us birds who are frying...

I thought crickets only come out during the summer.Guess what???
They are invading us!!!!

They seem to be as confused as we are with this hot weather...

As for sick and injured mommy's and daddy's we wish you wellness and a quick recovery.

Have an awesome day

  Hi Sugar
It's Calico.
Mom and dad went to an early free movie yesterday so we were not on the BC. They saw "The Finest Hours". Excellent movie about a Coast Guard rescue at sea that turned out to be the greatest small Coast Guard Boat rescue ever! A true story that took place in the 1950's. Then they went shopping for groceries and much to dad displeasure, they went to mom's favorite jewelry store. After the jewelry store they went to DAD'S favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner.
Today will be clear and warm, with a high of 88 and a low of 56. It's also Magnolia Bird Farm day. We all need more food and supplies. Also, dad needs to get more corn cob bedding for the bottoms of some of our cages. He gets it as a feed and grain store but they only accept cash so dad has to figure out how much to pull out of the bank.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Calico

  Hi Sugar
Ohio has really lax animal laws. They allow just about anything. The foxes we have at the wildlife center came from there and were brought across the state line into PA, where they were confiscated. Some guy a few years ago went nuts and released his lions, tigers, and bears (really) before killing himself.
We can understand a ban on all wild animals. Mom tells people here if they want a snake to get a ball python. They only grow to 4 feet, not like those Burmese ones that grow indefinitely. They are ruining the Everglades now, because people buy them, they get too big, and they 'release' them into the swamps where they eat prey animals that gators usually get. It's just common sense to ban non human primates, chimps and gorillas can be dangerous, and little monkeys are really wild. We've seen some places (on TV) where people actually pull out the monkey's teeth to try to make them safer to handle.
We had more nuisance snow overnight. It's just a little, but enough to make walking the dogs a bit slippery this morning. Mom got through it, though, and swept and salted walk and driveway again. It's supposed to get REALLY cold this weekend, but no more snow is predicted. We'll see how that goes, haha.
At the end of the summer, mom told all her pool buddies that she would organize a lunch sometime over the winter. Yesterday she finally did just that. She texted, called, and emailed everyone with the details, and they are all meeting at a local restaurant for lunch on Feb. 23. She even arranged a snow date: if it's miserable on the 23rd, they will meet the following week, same time, same place.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sis and brother in law. She is going to take a quick peek at their lunch menu because this is the restaurant she has chosen for the get together.
That's all the news that's fit to print. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Stay warm (or cool, if you're in CA). Hugs, Falco

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Sugar,
Mommy used to belong to Costco, but all she ever bought there was their rotisserie chicken. So when her membership came up for renewal, she said that she was not going to pay them for the privilege of buying their chicken. So that was that,

It was 6 degrees here this morning. We finally got a little snow yesterday and now everything looks so pretty. Guess what? Mommy won the soup contest at Curves with her Broccoli Cheddar soup. She’s really thrilled. She won two free months at Curves and two cute Curves shirts. Now if she’ll just make some of that yummy soup for us.
Lots of Love and Big Hugs, Little Miss Lucy♥

Has mom tried Bitter Apple spray? She can spray it on the things she doesn't want McKenzie to chew. It's safe for animals, but doesn't taste good. Maybe a spritz on the molding, the chair, and any other place that silly pup is trying to make into chew sticks would help to discourage her.
We'll see you tonight for story time. We both love you so much. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  Dearest Wooger, my best parrot pal-from Jen Lynn
...a day without hearing your sweet voices is like a day without sunshine, but you and aunt Eileen may not understand all of that! Do you all realize that McKenzie is a beautiful puppy, who very well may be dead by now if daddy Mike had not taken her back to your loving home! Since she has had very little human contact, she will take longer to become the ideal doggie pal like Mandy was, I think we have all owned a Mandy dog, and it still breaks all the hearts of those who loved them! This morning the Electric Company will be coming to install our new service box thingy! That means no electricity all day long, no computer, no TV, and no heat, and on one of our coldest days of the year! We do not want a miracle, we simply want to get back to normal, and have things the way they always used be! Hopefully by tomorrow the electric grid in our home will be restored to a safe working order! Dad's nurse gave him a good numbers report yesterday, but his BP was slightly elevated, probably because of concern for the power problem in our home! We may not make it to all your pages today, but we'll be back, we promise! Have a great day, and give our love to our dear aunt Eileen, and all in your happy home, Cya tomorrow...

Chilly love from Jenny, Christy, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, & daddy Dallas

  Hi, Sugar
Oh, our mom writes a list and then forgets it or can't find it in her purse or pocket until gets home again. Sometimes can't find things in the store if they've moved things around. The signs don't always include everything that is in an aisle so often pass by it.

Sometimes the split days off is okay but having two in a row really is the best. Yeah, our mom has organized the plush, books, CDs and the small peg items. If an area has a bunch of price changes then works on cleaning that up. The baby stores get the themed clothes but not the candy (for Valentine's) or the baskets/eggs/candy for Easter. Currently have the Valentine's clothing on sale and have St. Pat's clothes out. Not sure if Easter clothes are out yet since mom doesn't do the stocking.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

we haven't been on BC either because our dad is having a lot of health issues and as soon as he hears mom go to use the computer he needs her for something. mom then loses her traIN of thought, which isn't hard for her to do, while helping dad. tonight was better because he seems to be feeling better. it did get cold out. i think its 18 right now but at least we didn't get much snow.

  Hey Sugar,
Okay I'm here for my story time but don't mind me if I fall asleep as we've been helping Laka with her campaign as BOTM that I'm all tuckered out.

Pookie gets on the couch with Sugar and Dixie and after the second sentence Pookie is fast asleep.

They could hear little chips and a little snoring here and there.

So Sugar covers him with a warm blankie and lets him sleep while she continues the story with Dixie.

  Hi Sugar,
Here's part 1

The meaning of the name “Laka” is: “Gentle, Tame”.

Aolani Name meaning & Origin is: “Beautiful Heavenly Cloud”

Hawaiian Goddesses
by Serge Kahili King

The Hawaiian concept of gods and goddesses is very different from that of Western and Near Eastern traditions, from African and Australian traditions, and from North and South American traditions. Although still different, it bears a closer resemblance to the more eclectic traditions of India, China, and Japan than with any others.

The word for god or goddess in Hawaiian is akua, whose meaning is very indeterminate. It was applied to the spirit, i.e., the invisible motive or creative essence, of anything and everything. Therefore, the Creator, the wind, the first aspect of the full moon, a high-ranking chief, a slave, a ghost, and that which causes a motor to work might all be called akua in certain contexts. For the most part, though, the word was commonly applied to forces, persons, and things which had a lot of mana, i.e., power or influence. What this means is that, when we hear or read stories of an entity such as Pele, the volcano goddess, we can never be certain whether the story is about the spirit of a natural phenomenon, the human ancestor of a particular family line, or both, or neither.

Another important feature of Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that they are often completely unrelated. To people familiar with the Greek Olympians as a family opposing the Titans as a family, or the Norse Aesir against the Vanir, relations between Hawaiian gods and goddesses seem incomprehensible. As Martha Beckwith says in Hawaiian Mythology, "It seems to me therefore probable that different immigrant families brought with them the gods and ritual familiar to them." Unlike the Hindu system, which at least tries to form the gods and goddesses of many different peoples, times, and places into an integrated whole, the Hawaiians seldom bothered to do so, allowing vastly different traditions to exist side by side in happy chaos. And in the few instances where some integration was attempted, it was always very limited in scope.

  Part 2
Part 2
One more feature to be mentioned about Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that the more power they were assumed to have, the more different forms they were thought to take at will. The most powerful could take forms that were either human, animal, vegetable, mineral, or other. The god Kamapua'a, for example, could turn into a human, a pig, a fish, a type of grass, or even the rain. In Hawaiian these forms are called kino lau (many bodies).

In this article we are putting our focus on Hawaiian goddesses, and since there are so many of them, we will only look at seven of the most important ones. Even then, only a small amount of information will be given for each one. In addition to information available from various written sources, such as Beckwith's Hawaiian Mythology, I will add information given me by members of the Kahili family who taught me their traditions pe At various times, then, I have taught about the goddesses in different ways, and that has led to some confusion on the part of students. So, for healing purposes only at a beginner level for understanding and using the concept of Hawaiian goddesses, here is the Ola 'Ana Papakahi o Na Akua Wahine Hawai'i, "The First Level Organization of Hawaiian Goddesses" in order of attributions and associations of name, principle, color, element, and primary function.

Hina: 'Ike, White, Water, Awareness (Knowledge)

Haumea: Kala, Red, Stone, Freedom (Release)

Pele: Makia, Orange, Fire, Focus (Energy)

Hi'iaka: Manawa, Yellow, Wind, Presence (Purpose)

Laka: Aloha, Green, Plants, Love (Compassion)

Kapo: Mana, Blue, Animals, Power (Ability)

Uli: Pono, Purple, People, Success (Effectiveness)

That’s all for today folks, sorry I couldn’t find a spooky story to tell you, but I’m still looking.

Thank you for all the love and support for my birdie of the month campaign.

Happy Po ‘akolu (Happy Wednesday). Humpty humpty humpty away until Friday comes.

Here’s a vote for you, sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses.

Love from Hawaii,

  Hi My Loving Sweet Sugar
Oh how wonderful to have such a nice warmish 63 degree springlike day there!I'll bet the kids at Jennifer's daycare were just wild to being outside instead of being cooped up inside!
Oh how we all feel so bad that Aunt Eileen has to go back to work tomorrow.All of us can only know just what she must be feeling right now,missing you and just being able to do what she needed when she wanted to get it done.My Mom does the same thing when she buys all the stuff she does and our pantry is really getting out of hand with everything just thrown in bags and overflowing in a pile there!
Mom was a wreck today with having to take Nana on her errand runs and then they both paid the Comcast bill and Mom helped Nana fix her heat boxes and got them going again and then she picked up her toilet cleaner that was needed and by the time she left for home,it was snowing out again and getting dark.We will be in the deep freeze again by Saturday with the highs so far of only 15 and the lows of 1.Mom won't want to go out on those days at all!Shiloh came over tonight while Mom got dad's dinner and brought Peepers and Celine over for Mom to care for,Shiloh will be going into the hospital tomorrow morning,she has to be there by 5:30am,its a two and a half hour drive from here and it could be more with all the snow we have here and who knows what its like over the Bridge.She was upset and teary eyed as she left tonight and Mom is a wreck about her surgery tomorrow.Shiloh will call Mom when she comes out of her surgery when she wakes up.
Here I come my sweet Sugar to be perching right by your side,snuggling with you and reading our story together!I've been waiting all day just to be here with you,you are the sunshine of my life and make my world worth living for!I love you always and forever,never to part!Because of you I am!Angel wing hugs and soft angel kisses sent on the wings of a summer breeze!Loving you forever and ever,Love Gabbie

Poor Liv, she still has pink eye & she also has a stomach virus! It hasn't been a good week for her! Mom hasn't been on BC the past 2 days because we were taking care of Livi and she spent the night last night. I love the grandkiddos sooooo much, but they don't like me chasing them around, but they do like giving me kisses!

We are in for some really cold weather. Between now and Sunday the high temps will be in the teens and low 20's and the low temps will be in the single digits! On Saturday the temp will be around 11°/-2° and very windy & with the wind chill it could feel like -20°! That's way too cold!

Dixie tells Sugar that it was snowing while his Mom and Nana were out running their errands today and it was really coming down when Mom was leaving Nana's to go home.He tells Sugar that his dad never got to come home last night when he thought he would.He kept calling his Mom all night long and then at 4:30am he called Mom and wanted her to get him a fresh thermos of coffee and some vanilla coffee creamer and Mom got up and got the coffee made and the creamer ready for him to grab and run back to work.When Mom got home tonight he was sleeping so Mom had to unpack the car and put everything away and then give us our snacks and put our light on for us.My dad just can't wait to retire!
The friends waddle on over to the platform and snuggle close together.Dixie takes the Hello Kitty Lunch Box from Sugar and upon opening it he finds apple strudel inside!Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream as he places the strudel on napkins for them!They begin nibbling on the strudel and enjoy sipping the cocoa as Sugar begins reading the story she brought to read tonight!
This story is called"The Night Before Valentine's Day".Twas the Night before Valentine's Day and all the kid's were at the dining room table.They had paper,glitter,stickers,glue and scissors.They were all making special Valentine's day cards for school the next day.They cut,glued and wrote out each card until it was time to go to bed.They all dreamed of Valentine Candy hearts dancing in their heads!The next day they all catch the school bus and they all give the bus driver a Valentine!At school the classroom is decorated with balloons,banners and lots of hearts!The teacher has left a Valentine for each of the children and some of them start blushing when they read the cards!They each decorate a show box for their Valentine cards!After lunch they have a party with cookies,cupcakes and punch!Just when they think the party is over,a knock comes at the door.In walks the principle dressed like Cupid.The kids all laugh!He looks crazy and he leaves a big box on the table and tells them all Happy Valentine's Day!They open the box and inside is a hamster!A new pet for the class!Can you guess what they named it?Yep!Valentine!

Just as you've wished, I've had me an awesome day. While I didn't end up having any actual cake, I did get a big chunk of mom's veggie pizza and a tiny bite of Jack's birthday pumpkin pie.

  Hi Sugar!!
It sounds like the cupboards are well stocked at your house. I hope that you have lots of yummy things to eat. Us Zons sure like our food and goodies!! It is getting very very cold here. Over the next couple of days the temperatures are going to drop and with the wind chill factor, it may be in the single digits!! Mom sure doesn't like this kind of weather. It is too cold to even be outside to go birding. We just make sure that the feeders are stocked and full so that our feathered friends can get a good meal and try to stay warm, too. Fly in soon!!

  Greetings, Miss Sugar!
Good evening to you & your family! It has been crazy time at our house today. Mom’s been helping me make Valentines for all the greyt birdies that I know. Then she’s been working on tallying up all the receipts, etc. for the “Tax Man”. The Beatles have a greyt song about THAT guy! I consider myself a lucky bird not to have to pay taxes. For some reason, if there ever was a “Tax Bird”, I think it would be a vulture. They can scare you by just one look. Much less, by what they like to eat. Sam shivers & wrinkles up his nares.

I'm so relieved you saw that odd, no, VERY odd commercial about the Puppy, Monkey, Baby atrocity. I don't even KNOW what they were trying to sell because of that "creature" running around was just so shocking & disgusting! That should be some victim of a SCI-FY movie who gets vindicated by a hero or something. That's just....disturbing! I'm only relieved from you seeing it because I thought maybe I was hallucinating on some bad bean dip or something. Totally a YIKES commercial & Mom's mate & Mom turn the channel every time it comes on. That was a waste of money for some poor business owner. SHEESH!

Anyway, you have a good evening & STAY WARM!! Oh, that's right, it is warmer there than it is here in NC!! It is really blowing here at our house, but no snow. I’m having to hang on to my perch extra hard & I’m INSIDE! Take care, now!

Hugs for all,

  Hi Sugar
Well, after much scheming on the part of Mom and Dad, I got another sunbath today. The temp is 85, so we got out there at 11:30 (Mom was aiming for 11:15). I had parked myself on the top of the bookcase in my room so Mom got Dad to open the door, but that just got me to Mom's shoulder which won't work. So he came into the room a bit, and I headed for her lap...and got scooped up and into the carrier. It was very nice outside, so I really can't complain.

We shared the last of the gumbo for lunch, and Mom made Dad sniff it (he has super sniffer nose) to make sure it was still good. He said OK, but Mom figures one more day and it was history. We were both tired of it.

This is Wednesday, so Mom will be at the gym from 4-6, much to my disgust. Why can't she stay home like she ought to? **sigh**

Don't forget to vote in the Valentines pic contest on the milonga page #165848. You can get there by the cupid and heart avatar (thanks Aunt Arlene) in my aviary or on the Calendar page.

  Hi Sugar--
Sorry I and my fiblings have been so long absent from the BC...The Old Guy spent a week in the hospital, and then Mom had to deal with Auntie and Hubby in Law visiting for more than a week...She is just now beginning to get her act together...it didn't help that Rosie just about got her toe chewed off by the lovebirds (again)...and that she is busily trying to chew the keys off the computer while Mom types. Rosie is just back from the vet now, and the vet said she is going to lose a toe, but they are not going to cut it off unless there are complications.

The rest of the flock is fine....Sherman and Peabody are pretty much encased in vinyl right now since Rosie won't stay away from them. The finches are pretty much ok except that Phoenix is developing a crossed bill...we kinda think that is from an injury he had before he was rescued, but it's looking like he may be the next one to visit the vet....good thing the Moms found a good one. Anyway, as long as Phoenix keeps eating, things are good, but ....

Please excuse the cut and paste....Mom will be back as soon as she can....and Rosie has a stint in the Kissing Booth coming up, so that should help!

Hugs and Kisses to all,

Tooth

  Hey Sugar
You can blame this one on mommy!!!! Yesterday she was supposed to color her feathers and she got caught up doing something else...

Cleaning the house...


So today as I chat with you my mommy has a new color in her feathers.It smells! Now she's playing catch up.

On my blogs? The nerve of her!!!

The weather is hot and mother Nature sure can be rude at times.
Do you agree with me???

Sorry I got to make this short,like I said blame mommy on this one.

Love your buddy

That's sad about Faydra. We know she had a good life with your family, though. Mom had Pookie for 3 days short of a year when she died from congestive heart failure. That was sad, too, but mom knows she had a great last year. She was groomed, her teeth were finally taken care of, and most of all, she was loved.
We hope you are having a great day! Hugs, Willie and Peppino

  Hi Sugar!
I am so sorry that I missed your hatch day! I hope you had a wonderful day. You mentioned cake in your last note, what kind of cake did you have?

We are still having snow showers here, it seems this white stuff is never going to end! I know Dad is sick of it all, as he is sick of shoveling it!!

Mama has been traveling in to work with Dad now, since the weather and roads are snowy. She does not like to drive in the snow at all. We all hope some warmer weather gets here soon.

We didn't really watch the Super Bowl much either, but we did watch Puppy Bowl. I think you or I could be the bird tweeting next year, don't you? That would be fun!

Well, not much else to tell. Stay warm!

Sending you my love, hugs and a vote!

  Hi Sugar
Mom is torn about us birds. She realizes we are still wild animals that are descended at some point from parents who were robbed from their environment. Yet, like your mom, she can't imagine life without us in it. It's a dilemma, but at least many bird people do some research before buying or adopting us. Mom suspects someone saw this fox online and bought it without so much as a single thought about its needs. Chyna looked them up and found out people have been breeding them here in the states since the 70s and they cost around $1500. Still, someone on the site says they are not tame, can't be housebroken, and are not good pets. Why would anyone want that when there are so many other animals to choose as pets, from gerbils to Great Danes?
Maxine and I have been giving mom fits with our shredding lately. I like phone books, and Maxine loves cardboard. I finished a phone book yesterday. Mom won't give me a whole one, unless it's the skinny local one, because I can't wait to get in there and shred. She just gibes me 25 - 30 pages at a time. Maxine is shredding boxes, paper towel rolls, and anything else mom puts in there. Needless to say, it makes cage cleaning more of a challenge.
Yesterday we did sheets and towels, and not much else. We've been getting what the weather guy called snow globe snow. That means squalls followed by some calm, then more squalls. Mom got the driveway and walkway cleared this morning before walking the dogs, and we're hoping they stay clean. The snow is supposed to clear up today sometime.
Well, there's not much else new, so I'm just going to wish you a very good day, full of attention, cuddles, and scritches. Try not to get into too much trouble. Hugs, Falco

Puppies are so funny! They just have to explore everything, don't they? McKenzie is so curious. We hope mom got the applesauce put away, or else that pup will have herself a great time. We'll see you later for story time. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  Hi, Sugar
During the overnights mom got Tue/Wed off. Normally she'd get Wed and Sat off as those are not ad or price change days. She is currently getting Tue/Wed and nice to have the two days in a row off. She's glad she now works at a baby only store as they do not do the crazy hours or overnights at holiday time like the toy store, whew!

You don't like broccoli? We love broccoli! Best raw and even furball will eat it. Is McKenzie allowed to have any hooman food?

Summerlike for us with temps around 80. In the 90s for southern CA, yuck! Rather have cool and rain since still middle of winter.

Not sure when the store started the trade in but really generates business and gets old items out of useage. Know old bikes can often be repaired but car seats and other baby stuff only good for about 5 years so would need replacing if have younger children. Mom heard plenty of time shoppers preferring her store over others. Partly was the workers but frequent comment was neater and cleaner, which is also the workers doing a better job.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Sugar, Macky, & sweet Auda-from Jen & Christy
...we have had a very rough couple of days, but things are starting to smooth out a little! Things are starting to look a little bit better at our home, the furnace is temporarily repaired, and the TV digital converter box is working again! My goodness, here it is hump day again, and dad's nurse is coming today to recheck a few things about him and reinstate his VA Home Health Care approval! It is bitter cold here with temps of well below zero, and it will be that way all week, come on Spring time! We all feel sorry for the outside birdies, they are still looking around for food, so we feed them, they need to maintain their body heat! Have a great Wednesday, and give our love to our dear aunt Eileen and her constant shadow McKenzie, and all in your warm and happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Hump day love from Jenny, Angel Christy, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, & daddy Dallas

Happy Humpday ! How's was mom's first day back to work ? Another day of snow - just enough snow to be a pain (1-3 inches) So mom will have to clean off the car to go to work, clean it off again to come home . . . meanwhile, I'll sit and squawk at the wild birds who come to my back deck ! A couple will sit right by the back door and peer in at me ! Some of the smaller guys will sit and wait patiently on the railing while the feeders are being filled !

BC troubles this morning for me :( That's all the news from my corner of the world ! But you know what they say . . . no news is good news ! Hope it's all good news at your house too :) love Cookie

Off to a crispy 49 degrees. Heck of a way to start the day, but it will warm up by late this afternoon. I'm staring to pick up words from Jetta, and learning to say his favorite word, "NO". That's a good start. R T

  Hi Sugar
Sounds like all is well with Ms McK. She sure is settling in with her family. She has to be thrilled to have a real family and home. But, she must know that the boss is you!!!
As for Costco, we don't have one. But, we have a Sam's Club and I think it's probably the same kind of store. Dad goes crazy in there and mom keeps telling him that we don't have any place to put all that stuff!!!! We can't buy too much in bulk.
We have a high surf advisory for the next few days. Hmmm, I'm thinking of getting my surf board out but I need a new birdy wetsuit. Maybe I'll sit this one out.
At least we will be back to 72 on Saturday. We are all looking forward to that!
Hugs
Chyna
