  Hi Angel
the budgies are still being very bad. Paddy has now gotten Piddy to follow him to see Boo Boo on the floor.Piddy has no interest in Boo Boo which is just as well and Paddy keeps himself in the middle between Boo Boo and Piddy. Piddy is very impressed with the crystal water dish and is spending most of her time playing in the water which is good since her face is covered with the harrison pellet crumbs.

this weather is unbelievable. you can't even drive on the roads now. its been snowing at our house all day. at least its not bitterly cold, just cold.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  Hello Angel, Hello Pepper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom just got back from the vet with Mandy. She has been digging at herself because of the fleas. They put Revolution on her and gave her a pill that will kill the fleas within one hour. Merlin will be going at 3pm today to get his Revolution and some shots too! He is not going to be a very happy cat!
The vet told mom that there is this stuff called Flea Blaster that is all natural and perfectly safe around birds. It will kill all the fleas, eggs and larva that might be in the rug. Mom will be getting some of that today too! We will be flea free within a few days! YES!
Mandy does not have dysplasia. It is a spinal degenerative disease. It is just because of her age and there is nothing they can do. She is not in any pain since it's more like paralysis than arthritis. She can still make it around the house and she is still eating well so he told mom she is doing the right thing. He gave mom some cortalone to help with any inflammation. He was very impressed that mom knew about the "Sling" to help her walk! Thank you so much to Aunt Arlene for that information!
Ian and Mom carried her downstairs and lifted her into the car. She was a bit nervous to begin with but mom put the window down and she was happy!! The vet told mom that when she stops coming along to get me out of my night cage and won't eat then that will be the time to let her go. For now we still have her! Mom is just glad to know that Mandy is not in pain!
Sorry I went on and on!! You can tell we are very happy that for now, Mandy is okay!
Enjoy the day!

  Flitzer on an icy Wednesday in Buffalo
LA Fitness today: Dad had an adventure keeping his commitment of going to the gym:
The real work-out was trying not to fall down my driveway or in the street. Everything was sheer ice.
Crawled/Slid/Skidded down the driveway -and the street was worse.

Ice-covered by water - no way to get a foothold anywhere. HE IS BAD ON ICE

--
I, King Flitzer, have decreed today "Apple Day". Dad cut up apples for me in my preferred shape and size. Yay me! Have a Happy Day!

Monday Dad got me in the Travel Cage and took me to get my claws done with Aunt Maria.
I decided, for a change, not to fight it, and it passed quickly. Dad even bought some extra seeds for me while he was there. I must say, it was nice getting out as I've been stuck at home for the past couple months in record-cold temperatures.

The rest of the day went well, enjoyed some good Daddy-n-Bird Time. ~Wings Up~

  Hi Angelbird
Cori hugs her love tightly and preens his beautiful face to soothe him.

when mom was young she knew everything and time moved very slowly. she could hardly wait to see our frother grow up. over the years mom has learned that she knows very little and yearns for the days when our frother wanted mom to comfort him and protect him and all the fun things they did together. time moves too quickly now.

it was a nightmare at our house last night. mom was dragging the garbage cans and recyclable bin up the icy snow packed driveway and she kept hearing this Zzzzzing sound and finally realized it was the electrical wire leading from the house to the street. mom told dad who called the electric company, the cable company , the police and the fire department since we didn't have a clue what was happening. they all showed up at once. at first they said it was just the ice and snow on the lines but just to be safe theychanged the transformer cover and cable and the Zzzzzing sound went away. while they did this the power was shut off to the house. we really didn't need any lights because all the trucks and equipment made it seem like daylight outside. at least it is fixed now.

love Cori

  Flitzer Final February Post
THE LOST ART OF THE INTERMISSION:
.
For many years, longer films were planned with Intermisisons. the story would take a dramatic pause, the music would swell, and the audience got to take a break to use the bathrooms, visit the Refreshment Stand etc.
--
I always loved the Intermission music. Often in the older theaters, curtains would dramatically close on the Intermission, and slowly open when Part 2 began.
--
Nowadays we're forced to sit for 2 1/2, 3 hrs or more without a break.
[The Lord of the Rings films are good examples - they are long, involved, and you're lost if you had to take a break away from the screen].

Even revivals of older films will skip right over the Intermission - forcing you to shift in your seat - and hold it in for another extended period of time - ~ugh~
--
Unfortunately, after paying the high ticket-prices we need to *er* …"step away" from the film for a few minutes, missing possibly something interesting.
--
Theater owners are always conscious of how many showings they can fit in per day, but I say BRING BACK THE INTERMISSION. People *will* spend more for refreshments, and not have to miss any of the movie.
--

  Hi Angel
survived the day. first i had my nails done. i screamed after each toenail was clipped. mom then used a emery board to smooth the edges. i really wanted to bite mom for that. then when i thought it was all over mom decided to trim my beak a little. how much worse can the day get i thought. after mom put me back in my cage i sat there and pouted. mom felt sorry for me and decided to bring me out to calm me down. i lunged at her and wouldn't come out of my cage. by this evening i had forgiven mom for the awful day she put me through and came out for my playtime. i wasn't very active but at least i got some cuddles and head scratches from mom.

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.

Man, it's so sweet of you t'stop by my page with a "Hi!" I appreciate that. You're right about the weather bein' somethin' again this year. While we haven't had the crazy snow this season, it's still be a really cold winter. An extra heater's been in my room since November. The wall heater just doesn't keep up with the chill, especially if it's windy and blowin' from the south, right against my room. Brrrr! I'm lookin' forward to the day the windows can be opened again. Boy, is a cloud of dust gonna blow out them when that day comes! *cough-sputter-sneeze*

What's been keepin' you and Pepper enteretained through these cold months? I know the 'Tiels here have spent a lot of time chewin' up sea grass mats, cardboard egg cartons, dried palm branches and hay balls. The floor in their room is always COVERED with stuff! Me, I've had a great time playin' in my wooden hut, and gnawin' the pine shelf that was put in my cage a few months back. It had a nice rim on the edge but I chunked that off in no time.

Thanks again for flyin' by my page.

  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.

  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.

By the time celebs arrived at the Governors Ball, they were ravenous. As usual, the event was catered by Wolfgang Puck -- a fact he made sure everyone was aware of.
Before the Oscars began, he walked the entire red carpet in his chef's whites with a tray displaying some of the treats partygoers would be offered at the after-party. Among them: caviar-topped baked potatoes, chicken pot pie and mac and cheese with aged cheddar. There was also a dessert bar, though most guests skipped the cookies and cupcakes in favor of Puck's trademark mini gold-covered chocolate Oscars. The candy men were kept just feet from a station where winners headed with their real gold statues and queued up to wait for engraving.

Elton John Oscars Party
The Elton John AIDS Foundation hosted its 2015 Academy Awards viewing party in West Hollywood on Sunday. The annual event, now in its 23rd year, serves as a star-studded fundraiser for the organization, which John founded in 1992 to support HIV/AIDS care, prevention, and awareness.

John and his husband David Furnish serve as co-hosts. Gordon Ramsay is once again providing a five-course gourmet dinner, and there will be a special musical performance. John, who joined Instagram in December to document his wedding to Furnish, is now using his account to share intimate pictures from the exclusive celebration. Before the Oscars ceremony began, the music legend revealed $4.85 million had already been raised, and later shared an adorable picture of his sons watching “Uncle Neil” Patrick Harris host the show.

Miley Cyrus, Heidi Klum, Nina Dobrev, the Osbournes, Aaron Paul, Alec Baldwin, Rob Lowe are among the celebrities in attendance. Plenty more are expected to join the festivities once the Academy Awards show ends.

  Flitzer and Dad Sleepy after Oscar Parties
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the props
The audience that lifts you when you're down
The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops
The sheriff who escorts you out of town

The opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers won't come

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know..."
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Dad says it will take a couple of Blogs to cover his disorganized reactions to the 87th Acadmy Awards. [Dad is old and scatter-brained anyway, but I love him].

First Things First: The Opening Number was Awesome. The best in years.
The other highlight of the show was Lady Gaga's tribute to the 50th anniversary of "The Sound of Music" -like her or not, her performance was phenomenal.

Although Dad thinks there were better films last year, anything called "Birdman" gets my vote too. It took hom 4 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.
-
Dad's favorite film this year was "Whiplash" which won three awards, including JK Simmons winning for Best Supporting Actor - Dad says he had the best performance of the year and his gold statue was the most deserved.

It's interesting that each of the eight nominees for 'Best Picture' went home with at least one Oscar

  Flitzer ready to co-Host The Oscars
Oscar Sunday
= = = = = = = = = = = =
Singing: "It’s a wonderful night for Oscar…Oscar, Oscar!" --Billy Crystal

Billy Crystal is my favorite Oscar Host. He has hosted NINE Times between 1990 and 2012.
As far as I'm concerned he could keep on hosting.

The origin of the name Oscar is disputed. One biography of Bette Davis claims that she named the Oscar after her first husband, band leader Harmon Oscar Nelson; Walt Disney is also quoted as thanking the Academy for his Oscar as early as 1932.
Another claimed origin is that the Academy's Executive Secretary, Margaret Herrick, first saw the award in 1931 and made reference to the statuette's reminding her of her "Uncle Oscar" (a nickname for her cousin Oscar Pierce). Columnist Sidney Skolsky was present during Herrick's naming and seized the name in his byline, "Employees have affectionately dubbed their famous statuette 'Oscar'". The trophy was officially dubbed the "Oscar" in 1939 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

I am ready for a great night. We have snacks, a coffee cake, champagne and Dad'll be picking up "subs" [Submarine Sandwiches]. Just a small party.

  Hello Angel, Hello Pepper~
I hope you are having a great day! Dad is back on the road and it's not New Mexico he was going to, it Colorado! Different story all together. Mom could have sworn he said New Mexico but he tells her he told her it was Pueblo which is in Colorado! Well he got to the yard and they don't think he can make it all the way to Colorado on time so now he is going to Salt Lake City! Good news is that most of the mountain passes between here and there are bare and dry. There is a storm blowing in today but it's mostly wind and it's just not cold enough to snow. We did put the fireplace on for a bit this morning just to warm the room up for me.
Mom is finishing up the laundry and then she'll head off to bed. We had a great weekend but now it's time for the workweek to start! I wish I could be at the Milonga tonight but mom will be sleeping so I won't have a typist! I think I have only made it to one but I always go back on Sunday morning and read all about it!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥
