My mom's good friend had several cockatoos and when they laid an egg and I hatched, they gave me to my mom and dad. Even the vet said I was the ugliest bird she'd ever seen since my bird mom plucked me when I was 3 months old! But see, the Ugly Duckling story is really true!!! hehehe

  Hi Picabo & Flock
well its very important to keep those points. bc deleted about 1,0000 points from Paddy & Piddys page. not sure why since they always blog. could be that cockatoo giving i5 the finger we sent to them made them angry. We have been having internet problems also and thought t first it was bird channel but then it turned out to be comcast. they are having problems with the system i guess.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hello Picabo~
Getting smaller and smaller around here!! That's okay since we have the new site and FB!!
It's going to still be sad when I try to log on one day and it's not there anymore! I am curious as to what will happen!! Will it tell me the site is gone or what?? I guess I'll find out pretty soon!
Enjoy the day buddy!

  Hi ya Picabo~
Yep I'm still lurking around the BC. Want to see what happens but from what I heard the guy who is in charge of taking down the site had pneumonia so I guess we'll be around a bit longer. I've been doing notes on YP also.
It's nice that you guys took in CT. Domesticated animals should not be left out to fend for themselves. I know cats are excellent hunters but they are still better off with a family. There is a stray here who hangs out next to the wetland. A lady who lives across from us is feeding her and says she is pregnant. Mom and McKenzie saw her last night. She is orange and white. She ran off when she saw Mckenzie. The lady has been sitting out with food and waiting for her so maybe she'll be able to catch her and get her to a rescue.
Very happy to hear that your mom and dad had a fun anniversary. It is very cool that they are going to do something everyday.
Hope everyone is well and happy!

searching to see who is still left. glad to find you . well we are still here and waiting for the execution. we like you re not giving up the ship and will stay til the end whenever that may be. we will not say goodbye but continue on you pet nd try and make the best of it. one thing about bird channel we will miss is being able to read all the blogs of everybirdy on their pages if we hadn't been able to blog that day. it kept us connected to our friends and kept us informed about what was happening in their daily lives. i guess that will be gone. not really interested in blogging on you pet right now until bird channel is finally gone and who knows when that will be. stay strong and holding our wings together with each other we stay united.

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here and not too warm.
Washer broke yesterday so we are waiting for someone to come fix it. It may be Monday before anyone comes over. Luckily most of the laundry is done.
My play cage was all cleaned up when I got up this morning! I did sort of toss my bowl of oatmeal around but since I had eaten most of it the mess wasn't that bad! Now I am working on some toys in order to redecorate the bottom of my cage. Mom said she had to pull it out and sweep behind it! She said I had been busy!! Well of course I have been busy! I'm the bird and it's my job!
Mom bought McKenzie a stuffed alligator yesterday and she has already ripped it open! Mom is praying there comes a time when McKenzie does not chew so much! Birdsonally I don't think there is anything wrong with chewing!!
I hope your day is fabulous! Can't believe we only have one more day and then no BC. Doesn't seem real yet!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Picabo & Flock
In the great Milonga room There was one red balloon
And a picture of-
the big bird channel family
jumping over the moon
And there were four little birds sitting on chairs
remembering all the fun bird affairs
And a quiet old bird who was whispering “hush” Goodnight room
Goodnight moon
Goodnight birds jumping over the moon Goodnight light
And the red balloon
Goodnight fun
Goodnight sun
Goodnight fun time
goodnight great friends
And goodnight to the old bird whispering “hush” Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Good night noises everywhere

love forever and ever

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's sunny and pretty here and only going to hit 76. I can live with that!
Mom got up early to take Ian to work and then took McKenzie on a walk. She made us some oatmeal with pecans and applesauce when she got back. I ate that all up! Dad is getting ready to head off to Montana. I think he's going to New York after that.
Mom goes back to work tonight so she getting her thing ready for the workweek. We are nearly done with the laundry. We need to get George and Gracie cleaned out since we didn't get it done yesterday. That is about it!
We copied all our stuff off BC just in case they decide to shut down earlier. It took a while to move all of the BOTD Archive stuff!! It was nearly 5 years of BOTD's!! Don't know if any bird will ever need the info but we saved it anyway!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's perfect!

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a fun day! I see they say that it is exciting news! Exciting to who? Not exciting to us since they are destroying something we have worked to build up over all these years. We do have the memories and we will still have each other.
The Petcha is going to have a page for birds and you will be able to leave messages according to the email I got. I only got the email from the guy I emailed. The general announcement came in the forum of the newsletter. If we can get the Milonga and other activities going on Facebook it will be okay. I rather like the YouPet and mom put McKenzie and Merlin up with me. I already have a dog and cat as friends! I think the cat is really into it cause she has the most friends on the site. When I signed up yesterday all 12 of the newest members were from BC!hahahaha When you add a picture it takes a while for it to show up so don't worry about that.
Mom and dad went out to lunch for dads birthday. It's on Saturday but he won't be here. Now they are home and mom is off tonight so I hope we get to do something fun. She still has to pick up Ian and Jennifer and then go by the library. She'll go look at books while Ian and Jennifer sit on the bench outside to catch Pokemon. Yep! They are playing that game on their phone. It is rather like a scavenger hunt! They seem to be enjoying it.
She will have to take dad to get his truck later since he is getting a new seat put in tomorrow. Guess the old one was making his back hurt!!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Picabo & Flock,

How are you all doing? It's Oz & Flock! Hope all is well in your Happy Home. Just remember Picabo that you can come and stay at my home anytime you want Too. Not just in the Summer to swim in my Pool but anytime through the year Okay, Buddy? We all just love you, Picabo!

Yes, shutting down Bird Channel really has my Mom and us very upset. We have all made such great Friends on here, some we have met but most we haven't and yet we all have such a connection. It's so nice to talk to people with Birds and discuss everything about them & if we have questions, we just ask! We have shared so many good, happy but also sad things that have happened to us, our Birds, Family and even our Friends! I do hope that this "Petcha" will be just as good a site and that we will be able to stay in touch the way we have all these years! It's been nice to have Friends that know what we're going through having Birds/Parrots as my Family & Friends don't understand because they don't have them and just don't get it & really never will the
way we all do!

Take care all and just know that Mom and all of us Love you all and yes she also has tears in her eyes over this whole situation. Hope it can stay as close as it is here on Bird Channel. Mom is not the sharpest pencil in the box and just hopes she can understand how to make it work! Her words not ours LOL!

  Hi Picabo and flock
Officer Sequoia drives up in his police car.
"Climb in!" He waits until Picabo and his flock climb in the car and then drives off with the lights flashing and the siren on. "If this is out last drive before BC shuts down, we might as well go fast!" All the other cars move out of the way when they see the flashing lights and hear the siren.

They have fireworks at the park in Boonsboro, the town that we live near. They never have them on the fourth though, because other places like Washington DC and Antietam National Battlefield have bigger celebrations. Dad didn't go this year because he was too tired.


We were very very sad when we heard Bird Channel is closing down. We have only been here for around six months but this is the best web site my dad has ever logged on to. I know there is a BC Facebook page but it just won't be the same. Plus, Dad isn't on Facebook.

We are glad we got the chance to get on BC even if it was only for six months. We have had so much fun here!

Hope you had a good day.

  Hello Picabo~
I hope the day is going great! Sorry for the general type note today but mom has to go pick dad up in an hour so our time is limited.
We posted the reply from Petcha on the calendar page. They say there is going to be a bird part to it. Crystal said they were going to move the stuff from BC over there. Move what I wonder? We have everyones email I think and we think everyone has ours. We are in the BC directory also. We will stay in touch! You have all become part of our lives and we could not imagine a world without you!!!
It is day 2 of McKenzie's recovery and if she did not have that scar running down her tummy you would never know she had surgery! She has been running up and down the hall, jumping on the bed and chasing Merlin! That was just when mom let her out of the crate this morning so they could take their walk!!!! Mom is going crazy trying to keep her quiet. She is not wearing the cone and has not bothered with her stitches. Mom gave her another pain pill so hopefully she will get sleepy and go to sleep. Mom knew this was going to happen even though so many people said that being spayed would calm her down. McKenzie does not have the laid back dog personality!
Enjoy the day and the time we have left here! I know we will figure out something.

  Hi, Picabo
Very sad that BC is closing next week. Will miss it so much. Hopefully can keep in touch with group emails or on the (dreaded to us) facebook. We have an account but will need to reset the password.

That is funny you are still scared of the chair but a towel covered couch is okay. Wouldn't want the cats to scratch it or any critter to have accidents on it.

Always love to see any birds at the zoo. Must be awesome to see the 'tiels!

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

  NOW AND FOREVER . . .
Now and forever you are a part of me
And the memory cuts like a knife
Didn't we find the ecstacy? Didn't we share the daylight?
When you walked into my life

Now and forever, I'll remember
All the promises still unbroken
And think about all the words between us
That never needed to be spoken

We had a moment, just one moment
That will last beyond a dream, beyond a lifetime
We are the lucky ones
Some people never get to do all we got to do
Now and forever, I will always think of you

Didn't we come together? Didn't we live together?
Didn't we cry together? Didn't we play together?
Didn't we love together? And together we lit up the world

I miss the tears, I miss the laughter
I miss the day we met and all that followed after
Sometimes I wish I could always be with you
The way we used to do

Oh now and forever, I will always think of you
Now and forever, I will always be with you

Carole King says it better than I ever could ! Let's enjoy our last few days here before moving on to emails, FB, or some other format. TheParrotforum.com is very different but perhaps there is a way to make it work for us - at least for those reluctant to use FB . . . sure beats the alternative !

We had some rain here last night and this morning the air isn't as thick :) If it holds, mom and dad are heading to West Point for an outdoor Army Band concert - with a picnic supper . . . that of course means lock down for me :(

Love you NOW AND FOREVER ! a heartbroken Cookie

  Hi Picabo & Flock
we probably joined bird channel around 2007 but weren't very active on it and bird channel took away all our points because of it. then we got back on and would just vote for birds but not say anything. eventually Hulk stopped by and started talking and we talked back and it hasn't been the same since. bird channel came to usat a time when we really needed it. who would have thought we would have made such wonderful connections and become good friends with people we had never even met. many we used to talk to have now left bird channel and we always wonder what happened to them and how they are. some have passed on and we miss the conversations and fun times with them. we have a wonderful warm loving family and it is so very sad to see it end. at least a few years ago when bird channel announced we were going to be dust we had enough sense to start collecting email addresses names and phone numbers. we have dreaded that this day would finally come but knew i5 publishing had no interest in keeping us together. we knew we would stay to the very end and knew it would be hard to say goodbye to all our fun times. its very hard to talk right now as tears are making it had to type.

  Hello Picabo~
I hope your day is going great!! We are being quiet around here so that McKenzie can sleep and recover from her surgery. She did really well and hasn't had to have a cone on yet. She seems to be more bothered by her leg where they put the IV in. She didn't eat much last night but this morning she had her regular breakfast. I shared my pancakes with her too. She has to go back in a couple of weeks to get the stitches out.
Merlin was very upset when mom came home yesterday morning without McKenzie! Who would have thought that he would miss her? He fussed the entire day until mom brought her back. He is such a contrary cat!
Today is Jennifer's birthday! Mom and Ian got her gift cards since she likes those the best! When mom dropped her off at work all the kids at the daycare were lined up by the fence and sang Happy Birthday to her! It was so cute! Think she was a bit embarrassed by the attention!
We saw the pictures of your house on Facebook! OMG! It is just spectacular! We had no idea it was so big! Ian walked by and thought it was some kind of resort!! It really is beautiful and that sofa was worth waiting for!! I can just see you all stretched out and relaxing!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

Happy Friday ! Boy did I miss all my friends while mom and dad were gone ! But I had fun with my Laura - she called mom early yesterday to tell her that I was an imp ! Can you imagine that ? She had to leave for school and I would NOT go in my cage, so she put a blueberry in there - I scrambled over and sat on the cage door, and looked at her as if to say "HA ! Now I've got a blueberry and you still can't get me in !" Eventually, though, I HAD to have a taste and "whoosh" went the door and out went my Laura :(

Turns out the summer camp needs a new water heater . . . the handy man had been over to power wash the dock and saw the leak - so that's all taken care of. While there dad also got the ladder in the water and replaced a couple loose boards . . . now everything is ready for me to go ! Don't know when yet - a couple more weeks at least.

The last few days (up there and here) have been oppressive ! It's the kind of hot that's like breathing hot soup - YUCK ! Hope everything is well with you !

  Hi Picabo,

How are you, Buddy? Hope you & Kookie & Doo got home okay. You and any of our Friends are always welcome at our home. It was hot as hell (90's & Humid) here today and tomorrow it's getting hotter! Actually we're suppose to see temps in the 90's through next week! Mom didn't get in the Pool today but she said she's getting in there tomorrow!

Mom ordered the Hardware for the Kitchen Cabinets for Aunt Shirl and she screwed up on the Back Plates. The Knobs and Pulls are Satin Nickel which is correct but Mom hit the wrong button and ordered Antique Nickel for the Back Plates! When she opened the box & realized her mistake she quick called Build.com & they were so helpful. It was too late that day to get the correct ones out but they did the next day & yesterday Mom send the wrong ones back. They should be in the early part of next week. Our Contractor will hopefully be back & finish up next week! But your Mom & Dad know what that's like LOL!!

Okay, guess that's all for now. Hope all is well in your Happy Home. Here's a vote for you, Handsome. Bye for now.

  Hi, Picabo
That's awesome to have the yearly free pass for the various zoos. Mom took skinsis and the grand to a lil zoo that also has some playground stuff and rides. (It was there when mom was a kid but changed a bit since then.) Many of the critters were snoozing but could still see 'em. There was three different macaws and a pair of Ekkie's too! Gosh, a train ride for 10 cents? What a bargain. There's a park near us that has a merry go round and a lil train that goes around the park. Riding each one costs $1. When skinsis was lil the parronts were going so much (she had to ride each one each visit) they ended up buying a yearly pass so could all ride then as often as wanted.

We are staying in our cooldown after the heatwaves. So nice to be in the 70s for the week. At least the bit of rain must help the plants.

A new couch when you are still suspicious of the chair? We aren't allowed on the furniture but do climb on 'em occasionally if watched closely so don't have any accidents on it.

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

  Hi Picabo
have heard how nasty those african bees can be. have also heard that they are much more resistant to monsantos deluge of pesticides which are wiping out the honey bees. some of the african bees have colonized with honey bees in new mexico and texas and the bees aren't as nasty as african bees but not as sweet as honey bees and are pollinating and making honey. that would be something to see fire blasts in the jungle.

even though people don't like yellow jackets they are very beneficial and eat a lot of insects like flys and mom hates flys. anyway mom went to check on the birdhouse that she had dragged to the edge of the lawn full of yellow jackets. all the yellow jackets were gone and something had dragged out of the house all of their honeycombs which they had made by attaching it to dryer lint they had taken from moms dryer vent. there was so much of it mom thought at first it was a dead furry animal.then something had dug a hole underneath the bird house. then dad pointed out another bird house that had half of its nesting material hanging out of the tiny round doorway. mom figures some predator is checking all the bird houses for food. thats why mom always keeps her distance when she sees birds going in and out of the houses because you never know what creature is watching you if you go and inspect and draw attention to the birds. mom thinks with the painter and the trees problems and moving all the houses back and forth a lot of attention was drawn to the poor birds in the houses. at least she still has the american redstart in the one house the tree guys moved when they cut down the tree.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

Hope you are having a lovely day! Power washer guy came back and sprayed my window again!!! McKenzie went to defend it for me!! Mom had to put her on her leash until he was done. Then the gardeners came and used the blower thingy to clean up the sidewalks cause all the gook that was on the building was on the sidewalks!! I am hoping the rest of the day is peaceful!
Mom switched her schedule so she will be working tonight and be home with McKenzie on Thursday night. She will be going in an hour early tonight since she had to have McKenzie checked in at the vet at 7 am. Sure would have been easier if dad could have made it home.
McKenzie and Merlin broke the coffee table this morning! They have been working on it for a while and mom figured it wasn't going to survive! There is one at moms work that has a metal base and wood top so mom is considering that. Guess we are going to have to decorate with industrial items until McKenzie gets older. Mom doesn't like industrial!!!!
I hope you have a beautiful and peaceful day!!!

i couldn't have asked for a more debonair prom king than you. i enjoyed our dance together at the prom even though you weren't able to speak because you had no typist.
mom tripped over a nick that was laying on our patio steps as she was bringing back the patio furniture that had to be moved when the tree guys cut down our 50 foot oak that had oak leaf wilt so moms been having a lot of back and side pain. want to apologize for being off of bird channel for so long. moms back and side really start to bother her if she sits or stands for too long. as long as she keeps moving she feels better. the big branch they fell and miraculously mixed all the shrubs has been driving mom crazy and for the last few days she has been slowly dragging off to the side of the yard. its almost the size of a tree and probably needs to be cut up with a chain saw. on Sunday night the neighbors were going crazy with fireworks and one neighbor looked like they had a professional fireworks display. on the 4th it pretty much rained all day and the neighbor below us was starting to set off rockets and mom put on the house spotlights and stood right on the side of the yard daring him to shoot a rocket but he just said i guess no rockets will be shot tonight and went inside. before that they were setting off firecrackers on their wooden deck with their dogs sitting there.. in the meantime one of our birdhouses outside which is a head of a cat with its mouth open fell off the tree . when mom checked it was full of a yellow jacket nest and then were not happy to be laying on the lawn. mom waited til it got dark outside and put a plastic bag over the birdhouse and then covered it with a bucket and the dragged it it to the edge of the property . mom is amazed she didn't get stung.today she checked on the bird house and had neglected to remove the plastic bag so mom used another dead branch that had fallen off of a tree last night and lifted the plastic bag off and the yellow jackets were all alive and making quite a racket mom feels her back and side are finally starting to heal because even though it still hurts its not that sharp cutting pain. its been really hard for mom to sleep because no matter what position she was in everything was aching and hurting so she hopes tonight she will be able to sleep better

oh and by the way i got to go outside for about 1 hour and was mad when mom brought me in for dinner.

love Boo Boo

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It wasn't too bad here. Mostly cloudy the whole day and windy too! Not too warm which was nice since we had to keep the windows closed due to the power washing.
Last night wasn't too bad even though it was really noisy and lasted a long time. Non of us got freaked out at all. Mom left the radio turned up for us ans we slept okay.
McKenzie had to go get her blood work done this morning. It went fine and they were only there about half an hour. They gave McKenzie a treat and everyone made a fuss over her. She loves going to the vet!hahahahahaha We shall see how she feels about it after Thursday when she gets spayed.
Dad is not going to make it home until Saturday so mom is going to try to work tomorrow night and take Thursday night off so she can be home with McKenzie. We have read about what to expect but until it happens we won't know. It says that she should be sleeping a great deal the first 24 hours. Mom has to have her there at 7 am on Thursday and she probably won't be released until 7 pm that night. We think everything is going to be just fine. Keeping her quiet for a few days is going to be the hard part!!
Any news on the sofa?? It if wasn't so sad it would be funny!! I am going to guess that life is a slower pace down there because up here anyone else would be freaking out and calling the corporate headquarters!! We sure hope you guys get it soon!
Still hot down there? It was only 65 today. Ian kept saying it is July 5th, right?hahahahahaha Funny guy! Of course if it hit 90 he'd be saying it was too hot!!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

Come visit me, Sugar ~ Thanks for all the AWESOME Memories.

  Hi, Picabo
We always try to vote for everyone at least once and then go back and vote again on ones with pics we really like. Just never know how it will come out. Cookie told us he wasn't able to get himself into any fancy duds and doubted he'd get many votes and yet he was part of the court. He is very popular. We rarely vote for ourselves either but nothing wrong with it.

Oh, the grandson there is very nearly the same age as the granddaughter here. Sounds like fun to have the party where there's a petting zoo. Not long ago skinsis took the grand to the zoo near us (in SF) and said she loved it.

No rain for us in ages but at least our temps are back in the normal range. Whenever we use the a/c a lot always worry about the bill but never been too bad.

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

  hey Picabo !
A belated congratulations on being prom-King ! ! Handsome fellow :)

It was surprisingly quiet around here last night - I guess that's cause most of the towns had their fireworks over the weekend . . . mom and dad went on Sunday to West Point for the Army Band concert and fireworks (to 1812 Overture) . . . good thing too, cause although it didn't, there was rain in the forecast !

Now we're into summer for real ! 90's and icky sticky ! Luckily there are only a few things to get done around the house today, although it is Landon's gym day. Then later my Laura is coming by, and she'll be staying with me tomorrow night. Mom and dad are just going on an overnight up to the lake house to take care of some plumbing business . . . they'll be home on Thursday sometime - or by the weekend at the latest . . . always something. I only wish I got to go for this trip - sigh.

You guys enjoy your company ! Have a great day :) love Cookie

  Hi Picabo
Oh it sounds like you had a wonderful BBQ also with lots of good food!How awesome that the Brits are going to rent out their house for a year and that they cme and met your parronts.I'll bet they were in awe meeting such wonderful fids as yourself and frothers and fisters!Oh does my Mom and all of us know what those annoying barking dogs are like,we had some next door renting the house there and they had two big great Danes and did they bark so loud,when skin bro was little that ended his nap times.That is so funny that you can bark like a dog and that had to have been so awesome to have them hear you bark right back at them!Mom knew a friend of my dad's who had a little parakeet who barked like their sheepdog!It was hilarious!How awful that your poor dad had to build a wall on the roof of your house so the dogs don't come around to chase the cats and bunnies!My dad works for the DPW for the Town of Barnstable.He has to set up for the parade and then as soon as that's over he has to take all the barricades down and then set everything up for the fireworks at the beach.Its one of the most important holidays where lots of people come!That must feel funny to have the 4th just another day there!Oh that swimming that Aunt Sunny and the lady house guest did must've really felt good on such a hot day!It figures doesn't it that all the guys are napping except your awesome Mom who is up helping you with your notes!That sounds like so much fun for Aunt Sunny and Uncle Hank and the house guests to be going out to dinner on the boardwalk.I'll bet the house guests will be so sad to leave in the morning!It really sounds like they had such a wonderful time there with you and your wonderful sweet Parronts!It has been so dry here too,we had a bad thunder/lightening storm here Thursday night and we lost our power for a few minutes,enough to make it miserable where you have to set all the clocks,vcr etc again.It dumped rain but was as dry as before when the morning came.They guy next door was mowing his lawn and all the dust came over to us,while we were sitting on the deck.It has to be so hot to move in such heat to get the house chores done.Mom sprayed us good while we were out on the deck with her,we got up to 80 here today.
This morning was a bright warm sunny morning with the highs for the day of 82 the lows of 64 and right now its 80.Mom got dad off to work very early this morning at 3:30am and then she did some quiet work for awhile,putting things away from yesterday.Dad came home around 8:00am and then Mom got him some breakfast of French Toast and then got our breakfast ready of bean mix.She got us up and then cleaned our cages and swept our room.Then she went around and dusted the furniture up and downstairs.Hopefully there'll be no more pollen.Its going to be a nice quiet day here and Mom and all of us will be alone till well after midnight as my dad will be heading back to work in an hours time.Mom is planning on getting us out on the deck this aftern

Mom let me out of cage for a couple hours. I got to watch the outdoor birds and sit in the sun. It was fun.
Last night I got to have some corn from the cob. One of my favorites (after FISH of course)
We will watch fireworks on TV later today as dad does not like to go out to watch them any more.

  Hi, Picabo
Happy 4th of July!

Congrats to you on being our prom king. Glad both of us had a bit of fun the Sat previous since we had to arrive early and be silent for the rescheduled prom. Was an honor to be part of the royal court. Never thought we'd have enough votes either so just never know how it will turn out.

Nice to have the friends visit and one likes parrots? You must love the eggstra attention and so fun for them to be able to hold you without any nibbling.

The worst of our heatwave is over so more normal summer temps now. Hopefully it stays that way.

No big plans for the 4th since the family recently celebrated the grand's 2nd birthday with a cookout and a family dinner for mom's parronts anniversary.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
