  Hello Miss Sugar! Thank You So Much For Coming By
Yes, Mom is feeling much better & is getting stronger everyday. Today she has felt especially well because the fever has gone away. With Mom having lupus & 2 different arthritis, lots of times those things alone can make her have a fever & just generally feel cruddy. So, with her pain threshold high as it is, she can't tell when & where she has an infection. Especially when it is hiding under a crown! It didn't ache one bit.

It is truly a blessing that the crown fell off...twice! Mom found out one of the things lupus likes to do, is to attack the lining around the brain, heart, and lungs. Mom has danced with it already attacking her lung lining, pleurisy is what they call that but unfortunately, most people who have it attack the lining of the brain & heart are usually found out about it post-mortem. The dentist acting as quickly as he did just might have saved Mom's life. Her head had been hurting but she just thought it was her allergies, although it was hurting around her temples & top of her head the most. Just between you & me, Miss Sugar, I think that infection would have starved itself out if it had been looking for her brain lining. I really don't think there's anything in there but maybe a few old kidney beans. Mom's just not the brightest crayon in the box! Heehee! But I love her & don't want to see anything dangerous happen to her.

Well, I better get her off to bed. Hugs for all, SamIAm

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Oh doncha hate it when the puter crashes like that? We have not been on FB or the Birdyville site in a while. Mom says she is happy the BC is still around. For now anyway.

We are due up for hot and humid tomorrow. Mom says she will probably wear a skirt, as pants are way too warm to wear to work! She wishes they would let them wear capri's or cropped pants, but they don't. Sheesh! At least they don't make women wear any panty hose or stockings. It was lovely here today, with a wonderful breeze and not as humid as they predicted. Would be lovely if things are nicer tomorrow, but at least one day was hot and NOT humid!

  Hi Sugar
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here to start this week with one of the worlds most well known Parrots. Today we stop to visit the Senegal Parrots and their mutations. I wish to thank you all for your greyt support and daily votes in my quest to earn the Title of Bird of the Month for August.
Over the last 30 years as many as 3 million wild Senegal parrots have been removed from the wild – 811,408 CITES Export permits have been issued since 1975. Unregulated trade in African parrots peaked in the 1980s and ’90s, and still exists today. This lucrative black market industry is fueled by profiteering middlemen who exploit wild bird populations. In 2005, the Senegal parrot was the most traded bird on the CITES Appendix II, with an average of over 45,000 individuals being removed from the wild each year. Today, African parrots remain among the most traded species on earth.
The Poicephalus parrots, including Senegals, Red-bellied and Myers etc are among the hardiest parrots on earth being able to survive in the harsh, African subtropics. All of their ranges are under serious pressure from the booming charcoal industry, out-of-control commercial logging , burning by local people for pastures and agriculture, as well as climate change. Deforestation rates on the continent are now twice that of the rest of the world. Africa has lost one half of its old-growth forests and forest restoration has become absolutely essential to save endemic forest bird species.
Long-lived forest specialists like Senegal parrots and rose-ringed parakeets are particularly sensitive to forest degradation. The added pressure of the wild-caught bird trade is often catastrophic, resulting in local extinctions in many Africa countries. Meyer’s parrots have all but disappeared from South Africa, African grey parrots are no longer seen in Kenya or Tanzania, Ruppell’s parrot and the brown-headed parrot have disappeared from much of their ranges in Namibia and Mozambique respectively, and the Cape parrot is only found in small forest refuges in the high mountains. Anyone who has traveled by road in Africa will tell you that every time you are in or near a forest you will start seeing parrots in cages or with their feet tied up on the roadside. Africa is exporting its parrots, its wildlife, its birdlife, its natural heritage,at alarming rates.
The Senegal Parrot is now extinct in many of it's ranges. The only way to stop this trade in wild-caught Parrots is to refuse to purchase birds that are not born in captivity.
Many devoted Senegal breeders have been working with a few unique mutations that have appeared in nestboxes starting in the early 1990's. These rare and beautiful mutations are still expensive and normally available only to other breeders, they include the yellow, pied, opaline, dilute and cinnamon. Regardless of color Senegal Parrots will remain one of the most common family pet birds kept the world over.

Mom voted pool too, but she also got the laundry done when she got home, all but the sheets. She can do them tonight. That is really a neat pic of the football player. Mom says those guys are huge, and can pull off wearing those big rings.
Just a quick note today to let you know we're thinking of you. Mom cleaned the skunks, foxes, groundhogs, and coyotes today, all outdoors, and very muggy, so she was happy to get to the pool. We need her tonight, though, so we're making her hurry up with our blogs. Hope you are having a wonderful summer day with lots of love coming your way. Hugs, Falco

hears Sugar waddling up ever so quietly to his door and as she begins to tap on it,he swings the door wide for her and she waddles on inside and throwing her wings around him and holding him tightly tells him how very happy she is to be here with him tonight!Dixie holds Sugar ever so close to him and closing his eyes just melts in the happiness of having Sugar finally here with him,the day was just too long!Oh Sugar how awful to have to lose your daddy again!But he sure goes to many interesting places and Canada too!Its too bad you and Aunt Eileen can't join him!Just think of all the things you'd be able to see!
Dixie and Sugar waddle on to the platform and snuggle close together!Dixie takes the Hello Kitty Lunch Box from Sugar and upon opening it looks at two berry tarts!As he puts them on napkins,Sugar fills two glasses of blueberry smoothies for them!As they start nibbling on the tarts and taking cool sips from their smoothies,Sugar takes out the book she brought for them to read tonight and shows Dixie!The book is called Invisible Alligators!Sari is a little monkey who wakes up in the morning and knows that something is not right.All her toys are in disarray and her castle's bridge is broken!She doesn't understand what is happening!She decides to stay awake and see what is going on instead of going to sleep that night!She watches invisible alligators running all over her room!She speaks to them and questions why they are messing up her room each night.Taking her to their catacombs they show her everything they are working on!They have stolen socks,hidden remotes and shifted toys all over the place!Sari can't fathom why they would do all this for!They take her into another special room that is filled with books!The alligators design messes so they can write stories!They show Sari her story!Not knowing she had her own story book,she thinks its really cool!
Sugar and Dixie enjoy the tarts and smoothies!They both have to laugh at the funny things the alligators do in order to write a story!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and he tells her that his Mom took him to the acrylic cage so he could watch his dad out on the ladder scraping paint from the trim of the house so he could paint it purple again!He loved it when his dad was scraping paint right in front of him!Dixie just loves helping with the laundry,his Mom is waiting to do the laundry but the weather isn't good right now,it rained yesterday and it is very cloudy today and a bit humid!Macaroni is just the best!Dixie just loves macaroni,his mom always puts some in their bean mix for them!

  Hi Sugar
It's Popeye.
Last night dad tried the charcoal side of the new grill. Holy cow! There was so much smoke that you would have thought the house was burning down. Dad had to open the garage door to get all the smoke out of the breezeway. The Charcoal got hot enough to cook on in no time at all and dad grilled chicken thighs. Mom made a marinade with fresh lemons, fresh garlic, thyme, cumin and fresh ground pepper. Boy did it smell good. Dad hadn't cooked with charcoal in over ten years but he did a good job. The chicken was cooked perfectly and tasted "Out of this world". We were already in our sleep mode for the night but we'll get to try the leftovers. The charcoal stayed hot forever. Dad went out at 10pm to check his lights and it was still too hot to dump the coals. Dad learned from his last job that coals can stay hot for 24 hours.
Dad also installed a window fan in the garage. Mom thought he was crazy. In the summer the garage stays hot forever. The fan will help cool it down so dad can work. Oh, aren't all humans crazy?
Mom may work at the police station today. Dad wants to clean up the work bench in the garage. It looks like his tool box threw up on it.
Today will be clear, with a high of 85 and a low of 63.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi, Sugar
Busy, busy at mom's work but at least everyone showed up. The push this week is get as much of the colored clearance sold and they are put into bins around the store for shoppers to find easily.

Thanks for liking the new pic. You mean the clothesline one, right? That was a prize we won from NTT. Peepers (Dixie/Kallie's frother) got it made for us.

Baby Jade, furball and parronts won't be that far away. Hopefully they can visit often.

Would think that ring must be a tad heavy as it must take a bit of gold to hold all them diamonds. Must be very sparkly.

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

  Hi Sugar,
dad got all his 6 passes in and got his papers signed, now mom has to put it all together with his physical and of course a check...she has to send the originals so she'll make copies of all the paperwork just in case.

Dad made a total of 8 runs yesterday. They were very close together and dad got very tired, his 5th and 6ths runs were not very good so he had to make 2 more. He told them he needed to rest and after a rest he made his last 2 passes to complete the requirement. Dad ended up making himself sick...over heated and at the point of total exhaustion. Their friends at the track help mom and dad pack up and put the bike away and that was a good thing cause dad wouldn't have been able to do it. Dad managed to get them home safe and sound but he had a lot of camps in his legs, arms, and even fingers; when they were finally home dad got really sick, he had the dry heaves as soon as he got out of the truck.

Dad felt better after a nice hot bath and mom gave him a heating pad to put on his legs and that really helped. He even got a good nights sleep. He was still really tired today and didn't do much but get the bike out of the trailer with mom's help.

Mom took care of all of us last night...we did get our nite nite snacks before we had to go to bed. We did get to stay up really late...11:30 pm...we are night owls.

Mom didn't do much on the computer at the track as it seemed like she would just get settled and then it was time for dad to make another run...normally, she uses this time to catch up...not this time though.

Mom just can not take the heat like she used so she was really tired as well yesterday and again today. She did do a few things...she got us all fed and we got to stay out a long time and dad was in our room watching the NHRA drag races.

Mom is so jealous now...your mom got to see the ring...did she get to take a pic with K.J. that sure worked out for your mom...wow!

  Hi Sugar & Pippo
Been off bird channel for a few days because moms been having sever pain running down her left leg due to her back problems.moms wearing her back brace and its taking pressure off her leg so her leg doesn't hurt as much. mom looks like a dork with the back brace on.we thought this was interesting and want to share it with you.

Moths are among the most diverse and successful organisms on earth. In fact, scientists estimate there are more than 150,000 moth species worldwide! Move over butterflies, moths come in bright colors and dazzling patterns. Species can take a myriad of shapes and can be as small as a pinhead to as large as an adult’s hand.
here are five awesome (and often little-known) facts about these winged wonders.
1. Some moths don’t have mouths. For example, the beautiful Luna moth does not have a mouth — so cannot eat — and will live only for about one week, with the singular purpose of mating!
Luna moth
2. Moths are great impersonators. Many moths have evolved to imitate other animals as a way to deter would-be predators. The Polyphemus moth has bold eyespots to startle and confuse those looking for a moth snack. The hornet moth looks just like a hornet, but is completely harmless. The beautiful wood nymph, a moth that has evolved to look just like bird poop.
Wood nymph
3. Moths love a good microbrew. Interested in trying your hand at mothing? Nothing attracts these guys like beer. A tip from our scientists: Mix a paste of beer, brown sugar, and banana. Paint it on some trees, kick back and relax, then check back in the evening with your flashlight to see the multitude of moths you’re sure to attract.
Attracting moths... with beer!
4. Moths can turn bears into tigers. We’re all familiar with wooly bear caterpillars — but did you know this bear can turn into a tiger? Yep, the wooly bear emerges from his cocoon in the spring as a lovely Isabella tiger moth. Fun fact: Once a cocoon is spun, the caterpillar turns into a mushy soup during metamorphosis before emerging as a moth.
Moth metamorphosis
5. The death’s-head hawk moth has a serious claim to fame. He got his start in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, then went on to leading roles in both The Silence of the Lambs and The Mothman Prophecies. This famous moth gets its name from the scull-shaped pattern on the thorax, and has the unusual ability to emit loud squeaks when irritated.

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Yeah, Mom loves it when football players and baseball players are accessible to the fans like that. How awesome! Now hopefully Russell Wilson will be around like that...Mom says your Mom can tackle him for my Mom. She might be old, but she thinks he is one hot dude, and a real class act. And as a former Badger, he is A-okay in Mom's book!

Another wonderful day with Mom, though I am grumpy today cuz she did not get up until 8 AM! I was up and ready to go at 7 but that lazybones did not get out of bed until later. Now mind you, 8 AM is not super late, but she is normally up by 7 on Sunday. So I had to wait a whole hour for her! Sheesh. But we had a good day, and now she is getting things ready for her return to work tomorrow, and I am not happy about that at all. So I am velcroing myself to her shoulder. Get me to move? No way.

Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!

Yesterday I should have been onto it but wasn’t. Mom did our blogs early and cleaned my cage early too. Figured it was raining so she would stay home all day and night with me. In the evening mom and dad went to the trail to help with a moonlight race as they call it cause when it gets dusk the race starts. It was dark most of the day with the rain we had though. There are candles lit the whole way up the trail where the race is held and usually the moon is bright too though some people do use some type of lights too. Mom said it was a bit muddy since we had rain all day. By the time they got back home I just wanted covered for the night and mom did that and I was fast asleep then. “All you need in life is a friend who has millet” Leaving a vote for you …your forever friend.

  Hi Sugar
Hi everyone, Zeena, here with your Sunday BOTM POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for all your support and votes during this month's BOTM campaign. Today, we will visit with some unique and usual Budgie mutations. Known by many names, Parakeet, Budgie, and officially Budgerigars. these fun-loving, friendly members of the avian family are loved the world over.

Feather Dusters
Feather Dusters are a rare mutation produced solely at random, mostly among English Budgies. These birds are huge compared to other budgies and have abnormally growing, very long feathers. As the name implies they do look rather like the feather dusters used for dusting furniture. They must eat constantly to try and supply their bodies with the nutrients they need because of the heavy demand put on them by the constant feather growth. They generally don't live more than a few months, cannot fly, and are usually blind. They are also thought to be deaf and may even be afflicted with what is known in humans as Down's Syndrome.


Half Siders

Half-Siders a randomly occurring rare mutation in which the bird is split right down the middle with each half representing a different color or variety. One side may be blue and one half green, one half normal and the other half pied, etc. When one of these is at a show, you can tell exactly where it is in the room because of all of the people standing in front of the cage doing double takes. As they say, you have to see it to believe it. Quarter-Siders, in which only one quarter of the body is affected, also occur.

CRESTED

In this variety, the feathers on top of the budgie's head point awry, forming a crest.
There are three types of crested budgies: full-circular crest, half-circular crest and the tufted crest.
Crested Budgies are both a random occurring mutation, and one for which breeders can breed to produce them. They are relatively rare and sell for upwards of $100US each and more depending on crest.
Helicopter Budgies

These unusual Budgies are bred to produce long, silkie feathers at the shoulder and upper wing margins. The more complete the covering the higher the quality and price. They are especially popular in Japan and Asia where pairs can sell for up to $55,000US

  Hi Sugar
It's Popeye.
It's just the other way around with our mom and dad. Mom's the one that wonders off and dad has to go find her.
Well, we new it was coming. It was bound to happen. there was no stopping it. Dad actually FINISHED something. It took him over 4 hours but he got the new BBQ grill all put together and boy does it look cool!
Uh, maybe since it's a BBQ grill, it should look hot? Anyway, dad grilled some mini steaks last night and they were done in no time. When dad first fired it up the temperature hit 700 degrees in less than 5 minutes. The old grill to 32 forevers to heat up. Today he's going to pick up a bag of charcoal and grill some chicken on the charcoal side of the grill. Mom's going to make some garlic sauce to baste the chicken while it's cooking. So far, I'd say it's a success.
Speaking of never ending projects, dad's still messing with the lights. He keeps changing them around and changing the batteries. He says that, after tonight, he should be all done. "YEAH, RIGHT".
Today will be mostly cloudy, with a high of 82 and a low of 63.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Morning Tuugs & Pippy, from Jenny Lynn
Good Sunday morning dear friend, the bird club meeting went very well last night! Our dear aunt Teresa called us yesterday afternoon, to tell us Cheeta and Casaur are recovering nicely, at least as good as can be expected! Dad was given permission to relay the news to our friends, and while Ceasaur had developed an infection, it is treatable with antibiotics, and Cheeta has only slowed down a little with her damaged wing, she has that indomitable spirit of all Caiques, Cindy knows what I mean! It has finally been decided that Limon will be our bird, and we couldn't be any more pleased! Have a great Sunday dear friends, and give my love to our special friend Ms Auda, and all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Sunday love from Jenny & our Dallas flock

PS~Theresa thanked all of you for your prayers, and our prayers will continue, for her and her birds, thanks and God Bless you all...

  Hi Sugar
That's so cool to see the ring up close! They are really fancy!
Yesterday at the birthday party it rained all afternoon. They have a large garage though, and set up picnic tables indoors for everyone. The children played in the rain, of course. They found a cute little brown toad and showed it to everyone. Most of the women were grossed out. Mom thinks they were surprised when she picked it up after it hopped off Ryan's hand. She was a science teacher, though, so she has handled lots of animals. She made sure they put it back where they found it, too.
Mom's niece's husband took mom's sister's old bed and made a bench from it. It's an antique bed, about 100 years old, but was really starting to show its age, so mom's sis bought a new one and gave the old one to Rich. He did a great job! The headboard is the back of the bench, the footboard is the sides (armrests), and the sideboards are the front. What a clever reuse of something old.
Today is either laundry, pool, or both, as well as our cage cleanings. Hope you are having a good day with sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sugar
Superbowl rings are huge, aren't they? Glad your mom got to see one from the Seahawks! Japanese movies usually have a lot of action in them, Sailor Moon sounds like fun. We'll see you for story time tonight. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo and Gizmo

  Hello Sugar
I can't believe it. Mom was up at 6:30 this morning because she has an appointment at 11:30, to qualify. She has to do this thing every 6 months, cause they want to make sure she can still hit the broad side of a barn. She'll only be gone for a few hours, and will play with me when she gets home. I sure like playing, and am learning all kinds of fun things. She got me a few more toys for my little house, and I'm not sure what to do with them yet, but I guess that I will learn.

Come visit me, Cinn-A-Bun.

  Hi, Sugar
Hmmm, our dad tends to wander off on shopping trips too. Then when he goes looking for mom claims she's hiding behind stuff so he can't see her! She's not, just that most things are taller than her so naturally he can't see her. How awesome for your mom to meet a Seahawk player and get that closeup look at the ring. Heard a description of it and good thing those players are mostly huge else that big ring would be overwhelming on a hand.

Has Ian ever seen any famous folk shopping? There's been a few in mom's store and once she saw skinsis ortho doc and the dental hygienist. Also seen a few of her childhood friends all grown up.

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

  morning Sugar !
Sounds like mom and dad had an exciting day ! Mom has seen a ring too - many, many years ago she had NY Giant Harry Carson's daughter in her class and he came to show all the kids !

Time to get the marketing done ! Pretty soon mom won't have to buy maters ! So far there are four of them on the plants - still green but growing ! Bunch more flowers too ! They'll be using dad's car for any errands today - service engine soon light came on in mom's yesterday so she'll have to call Ford first thing in the morning :( And she just made the final payment ! Now come the repair bills ? YUCK !

Anyway - hope you have a lovely, peaceful Sunday ! love Cookie

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

  Ahoy, Sugar,
Capt Barnacles on deck listening to the DOG snore. Yup, I said dog. The neighbor's daughter got married yesterday and we are dog sitting. He is down in the family room but is loud when he snores and it is very quiet on a Sunday morning at 5 AM. Bo isn't too happy about him in the house but she's getting extra treats to soothe her ego.
The big kitchen project is over and Mom likes the new counter tops. She keeps thinking they are wet because the quartz is so shiny. Just give Dad a chance in the kitchen and it won't be so clean. Next in the house project is to paint the door to the family room bathroom.
The past few days were nice boating weather. Humidity will come in by Tuesday. Mom doesn't like hot and humid. She will go to the boat to feed Princess' ducklings and come home to the AC. Princess will be a character in Mom's new book, THE RIVER PRINCESS which she'll publish in September for the granddaughter's birthday.
Maybe she should write a book about friends on BC. You and Cookie are interesting friends and we're all really good looking.
Hope you have a good week. I left a vote for you. Feathery hugs for you.

  Hi Sugar
Playing with toys and supervising everyone is a parrots job. Sounds like you did a greyt job!
I don't like my mom being gone so much. I hope she stays home the rest of the week.
That is so cool you saw a Seahawks ring up close and birdsonal. I bet it was covered in diamonds ... they usually are. Did you get a pic?
I'm back on the BC. My parronts had a nice time at dad's family re-union. Saturday they went to Art in the Park then came home and had lunch with me. Tonight, we watched RIO2 and I sat on mom's lap and stared at the TV. It was a nice sunny warm day. Sunday they will go to see a polo match and maybe we'll have dinner on the patio, I hope so.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hey Sugar !
So what are you guys doing in this new circus ??

Does your dad work on the road?

My dad is a CDl driver so he drives a lot and is always on the road too.

It's been hot and muggy over here, the parrots have the ceiling fans on to cool off the house so it's not that hot.

Hope your place isn't that hot.

How can we join you guys in the circus?

Hugs,

Pookie and Laka

Mom said she will put up a page for her in a couple of days!
