  Hi Dandy
I like most of that stuff, mom gives us squash and sweet potatoes, too. I love star anise, have you ever tried it? And right now, mom is letting the basil go to seed, and giving me the flower heads. They are scrumptious! And they make me smell so good, too. Hope you are having a good day, here's a vote. Hugs, Willie

g-ma is back at the facility where she lives with 99 year old g-pa but she is not bcd in her apartment yet but in the health care center where she will stay until they determine she cn go back to her apartment. your prayers are very much appreciated. g-ma is doing ok at this point.

it turned into a beautiful day in the low 60s with lots of sunshine. mom is slowly brining in the garden ornaments. she brought in one hummingbird feeder and it looks like a squirrel ripped off one of the four feeder tubes with a bee guard. mom will hunt on the internet and see if she can get a replacement. most of the big oaks haven't even started losing their leaves yet.

while out in the yard today mom found a pale green caterpillar with 2 white stripes running the length of its body,. a white furry nutsucket caterpillar and 2 brown fury woolyworms caterpillars. mom placed them in the big juniper. then sadly she brought in my cage.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Dandy
We love your Halloween/fall pics. Mom says she now microwaves the squash, she pokes some holes in it with a knife or fork, then puts it in the microwave until it softens up a bit, then she can peel and slice it for us. We love it, especially those little mini pumpkins they sell for decorations. Mom found a little butternut squash, but she didn't share much of it with us, she ate most of it herself!
Last week Aunt Jane drove here from Michigan and picked up mom and off they went! Bree stayed with us and did a great job.
Now mom is back from New Jersey and Parrot Palooza. She had a great time, meeting all the bird moms and having a lot of time to visit and talk with them, although at times, it was kind of like the milonga, she couldn't get a word in edgewise, heehee. It was super to see a lot of the folks we just talk with online. The only thing that would have made it better would have been for us parrots to go to Parrot Palooza!
Mom carried a bag with parrots painted on it, and wore all her parrot jewelry. They shopped on Friday and more on Saturday. They saw a parrot show on Saturday, mom won a prize in one of the penguin races, and made a toy for us as well. Sunday was a quieter day. Aunts Donna and Therese invited everyone for brunch, and they made a day of it, visiting and talking, then went out to dinner together, too. Sheesh, you'd think they'd have had enough, right? But no, mom loved every minute of it, and wished it could have lasted longer.
In Falco's pics you can see the loot. It took mom 3 pics! The one with the bird mom tee is Aunt Jane's pile, the other 2 piles are ours. The other pics show a sign welcoming BC people to the Palooza (WOW) and a group shot in back of the sign. On my page are a Java tree stand with carved parrots on it, a different group shot, and mom with a Moluccan 'too named Pearl. On Peppino's page there are some pics of Aunts Therese, Eva, and Donna; Robin, Jane, Deb, and Eva; and Cindy with her new tiel. She is also getting a new timneh grey, but mom didn't get a good shot of Myles. Hope you love the pics. I also hope you are having a fantastic day today, and getting lots of hugs and kisses. Hugs, Willie

mom went to visit with g-ma today at the hospital. she found it with no problems. g-ma is doing ok and is being held for observation since no one seems to have a clue as to how or why g-ma fell.g-mas face looks like she did 10 rounds in a boxing ring and lost and gets quite upset if you tell her how bad it looks. actually it wasn't even swollen and looked pretty good except for the big black stitches and her whole right side of her face is black and blue. g-m is angry she is in the hospital and doesn't know why she is in there and want to go home. mom then left and got lost inside the hospital trying to find her way out. it seems all hospitals are designed like a maze and mom found about 10 other people who were lost and trying to find their way out. finally a nurse saw them and led the confused group outside to daylight.

we are so thrilled bird channel is back up and running. we were so afraid it would be all changed and glad its still the same. anyway after waiting 8 days to blog to every birdie , mom got a phone call from the center where g-ma lives saying she had fallen and had severe trauma to her head. they took her to a head trauma center that is 40 miles from our house so we have been sitting at home waiting to see what is going on. finally at 11:30pm mom talked to g-mas nurse dan who said g-ma fell at cut open her face on the right side of her eye causing her eye to swell greatly. they were afraid the artery was damaged so they went in and did surgery on that and then stitched g-mas face up. at this point g-ma is aware of surroundings and doing ok. she didn't have a concussion and mom had to tell the nurse to put on g-mss chart absolutely no pain meds except tylenol or g-ma will go into a coma and never come out. they were concerned g-ma had such low blood pressure from all the blood loss but mom said extremely low blood pressure is normal for g-ma. mom also has super low blood pressure. it never goes above 64 but her heart rate is 125. that the reason mom is always tired and easily irritated lol. anyway mom will be driving out to the hospital tomorrow so don't know when we will blog on bird channel but wanted everybody to know how happy we are to be back on .WHOO HOO.

  Hi Dandy!
Thank you for the hatchday wishes:) I got a nice new toy that mom will have to post in my gallery and some nutriberries. I did have a wonderful day and you are right....mom sure loves me!

Mom had her computer in the shop for a week so was without internet. I know she sure missed it a lot. It was a very long week....She had a bit of malware on it but the hard drive was failing so that was the big issue. She thankfully didn't lose any data:) Like those important pics of us! Hope you have a good evening;)

HAPPY TGIF DAY
this morning when mom went outside guess what she saw? a Great Horned Owl was perched on the roof of our house. when it saw that mom was looking at it it took off. mom didn't tell dad about it since he is very worried that the owl will swoop down and take our doggie. mom has told him the owl wouldn't bother a doggie that weighs 12 pounds but dad isn't taking any chances.

it was such a beautiful day so mom took Cori and me outside for about 1 hour and sat there with us on the porch while she read the newspaper and her book. i am feeling much better today and back to my old silly self.

love Boo Boo

Oooh, I love bird toys, especially pinatas!!! I know you do too, Dandy! So, don't you just love squash? I sure do. Mom nukes it in small pieces and gives us the seeds, too.
Mom got to do the RVS room today, and it's really emptying out. There are only 3 raccoons in there. The one was super friendly, and kept trying to touch mom, then when she didn't respond, he started screaming. It brought 2 staff members and 3 volunteers to the door to make sure everything was okay. Mom laughed, and said she was pinching him from 4 cages away! (She was cleaning out his old cage when he started to make all that noise.) Since she finished that room so quickly, she did some dishes, folded some laundry, then went into the office to file charts. She had done some on Monday, but the basket of things to be filed was full again.
After the center she went to the bank to deposit a property tax refund. She wasn't sure if it would come this year, or if they would take it off next year's taxes, but she was sure happy to see it.
Yesterday mom got some sewing done, and today she will do more, if there is time. She is thrilled to be able to do that again!
I hope you are having a wonderful day, getting sunshine, scritches, and lots of love. Hugs, Willie

the owl are outside hooting again.

it was about 72 today at our house but mom felt the air was too cool since she always laces us in the shade, so we didn't get to go outside. mom read in the paper that ti will be a cold snowy winter and a hot very dry summer. since its so dry outside mom is trying to keep the shrubs watered that she just planted as they are not established yet. the deer are also doing a good job trimming everything.

today mom ran to the grocery store and was only gone about 1/2 hour. while she was gone i somehow managed to get my foot hooked into my wing and was panicking. dad was home and saw this and frantically got my foot untangled from my wing. when mom came home after hearing about it she immediately trimmed my nails and sure prays it doesn't happen again. i am pouting now and holding my leg up

Too bad she doesn't live close enough to NJ for Parrot Palooza. Mom is going next month and thinks she's going to find some toys there that aren't around here.
Thanks for the well wishes. Falco's side doesn't feel as hard to mom, so maybe that's a good sign. She's still giving mom a hard time with the meds, though.
Falco says she feels good enough to be dancing at the wedding today. It's at 4 eastern, hope to see you there.
Mom had a training type tour this morning to help the people who work in the halls. She took them through cenozoic and mesozoic halls and gave them some background on the exhibits. It was fun, different from any tour she's ever done. Then she had a tour in mammal hall for the general public. It was one of those mini tours, and she finished in 35 minutes, YAY. That's supposed to be the time frame for those.
I hope you are getting lots of good weather today, we sure are! May your day be filled with sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Willie

HAPPY HUMPDAY

our August weather has just begun. its going to be getting hotter and hotter now.

there was a woman on the news who lives nearby who walked out of her house with her B&G Macaw sitting on her shoulder and was shocked the bird took off. she said he has never flown before. for 24 hours she tried to coax the bird back down from a tree it was perched in. if anyone got to close he flew to another tree. finally the owners son came home from school and the bird went immediately to him. the woman said she was going to get her birds wings clipped very short. "i have news for you lady the bird can still glide like a kite and take off in a gust of wind. where is your harness?" dumb lady

Isn't that something? Mom never looks at the vote counts, so we were all surprised to know that I got to 15k. It seems like yesterday when I hit the 10k mark. I think it's so sweet of Sugar to take over the 10k Hall of Fame until Maxie can do it again.
How have you been? It's been a short summer here, mom says, it seems like it just flew by! The weather is so weird, too. There are baby possums coming in to the center, and possum moms only usually have one litter in the spring! Mom's snowball bush is in bloom again, and that's a spring bloomer. Our grass never dried up and turned brown this year, either, we've had a ton of rain.
Anyway, I hope you are having a good day, and getting some sun and warm cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
The free range farming label is one of the biggest marketing scams of our time. consumers who are opposed to the idea of factory farming switch to buying free range eggs, as they are under the impression that these birds live happy healthy lives with the freedom to roam in lush green fields, flapping about in the sunshine and pecking in the dirt. this vision of a free range hen is just an illusion. statistics show that the vast majority of free range hens live in overcrowded cramped conditions and never get the opportunity to feel the sun on their backs, or grass under their feet.The legal requirements for free range hens in the United States only stipulates that hens are given access to the outside, with tiny doors that do not even legally have to be open.
In practice this means that the majority of free range hens never actually go outside and instead live their entire lives in huge, cramped, squalid conditions which lead to feather loss, illness, disease, injury and depression.

Free Range and Factory Farming Practices are Almost IdenticalAs well as considering the lies told about the living conditions of free range hens, it’s important to look at the standard industry practices as well.All eggs come from hatcheries where male chicks are considered to be a byproduct of the process and are crushed alive at just one day old. Females have the tip of their beaks burnt off to prevent pecking injuries to each other and are then crammed into huge crates and sent off to their destination farms, with millions dying in transit due to starvation, dehydration and injury.
iDespite not being housed in individual cages like factory farmed hens, free range egg layers are kept in extremely cramped conditions with as many as 20,000 hens being raised in a single barn, each having a space the size of an iPad.

There is nothing humane about conditions these hens have to endure during their lives, and it is time we started lifting the lid on the myth of free range farming. It is factory farming with a pretty label on the packaging, certainly not a welfare standard consumers should be feeling happy about.

HAPPY TGIF DAY
ok here is the third installment of interesting facts.
Random Animal Facts
25. A human brain operates on about 15 watts.
26. Warmer weather causes more turtles to be born female than male.
27. African buffalo herds display voting behavior, in which individuals register their travel preference by standing up, looking in one direction and then lying back down. Only adult females can vote.
28. If a honeybee keeps waggle dancing in favor of an unpopular nesting site, other workers headbutt her to help the colony reach a consensus.
29. Honeybees can flap their wings 200 times every second.
30. The claws of a mantis shrimp can accelerate as quickly as a .22-caliber bullet.
31. A single strand of spider silk is thinner than a human hair, but also five times stronger than steel of the same width. A rope just 2 inches thick could reportedly stop a Boeing 747.
32. A supercolony of invasive Argentine ants, known as the "California large," covers 560 miles of the U.S. West Coast. It's currently engaged in a turf war with a nearby supercolony in Mexico.
33. The recently discovered bone-house wasp stuffs the walls of its nest with dead ants.
34. By eating pest insects, bats save the U.S. agriculture industry an estimated $3 billion per year.
35. Dancing frog. its no bigger than a bumble bee and is known for extending its leg straight out and waving its foot to attract females. this foot waving also comes in handy for pushing other males out of the way. Fourteen new species of dancing frogs have been discovered in 2014, raising the global number of known dancing-frog species to 24.
36. A sea lion is the first nonhuman mammal with a proven ability to keep a beat.
( guess they haven't watched any of the parrots dancing ganga style on u-tube)

Mom said she would not complain about the heat this summer, because all winter long, she was just waiting for summer to come along. I got a new pinata! It's a big yellow lion with really neat stuff for a mane. I've chewed all that mane paper off, it's stiffer than the pinata paper.
Today mom went to the eye doc, who says all is well. She's going back in 3 weeks for the final follow up and the refraction exam for glasses, YAY! After the eye doc, she went to the center to do her shift at reception again. Maybe next week she'll start with the animals, but she felt it best to do another day at the desk today.
After the center, she went to the bank, then to the Giant Eagle pharmacy to pick up her meds, and finally to the pool for a couple of hours. Now we will have her for the rest of the day, hooray! She will be on the phone looking for a groomer for Polly for part of the time, but the rest of the time, she's ours.
I hope you are having a great day, good weather, and lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

Yesterday afternoon it rained like crazy! There was about 2 inches of water in the bucket mom leaves out to catch rainfall. We keep saying it's good for the gardens this year, though. Today is sunny but really cool out. Mom says she's still going to the pool, just to sit in the sun. It might be her last day for a couple of days.
Tomorrow is the big day! Mom has to be at the place at 8:15, so hopefully she'll be home by noon. We are all hoping for the best possible results. Mom says if it goes like the first one, it will be fine. We won't be online tomorrow, but should be back on Friday or Saturday.
I hope you are having a good day today, filled with summer skies, sunshine, and love. Hugs, Willie

.our big black gum tree leaves are starting to change color and they are starting to drop off. the land where we live in Pittsburgh is very unstable because of all the layers of shale and clay and coal and after being inundated with so much rain water a sinkhole has opened up near to where we live. a woman was leaving a retail shop on a busy road and was backing out of her parking space when her car began to rock and tilt and suddenly she start sinking down and called the store owner on her cell phone, who ran out of the store and ulled the woman out of the car window just as the car sank further down into the hold and then suddenly disappeared. we had helicopters flying above our house for hours from the local news stations filming this and reporting on it. mom also thinks the sink hole is probably an after effect from fracking activity and the frackers
haven't even gotten started with all the different well sites they have planned.

i thought today was going to be a good day but boy was i wrong about that. mom decided to take us outside today and i was very happy and after trying to bite mom a few times while she put my harness on mom grabbed the paper and out to the porch we went. mom read the paper and i looked around. after mom finished reading the paper she decided to pick up some sticks laying on the grass. ok everything good so far. then mom started looking at me. not so good. next thing i know she has gotten out the dremmel grinder and is starting to work on my beak. i was mad and wouldn't co operate. the more mom tried the more i fight her. mom then wrapped me up in a towel and that was all i could take and started to scream. dad came outside to see what was going on. mom said to dad please hold her beak open so i can trim her lower beak. dad then held my beak open and in 1 minute mom had smoothed down my over grown lower beak and i could close my beak. it was almost more than i could take even though mom kissed me and said i looked beautiful. if i ever find that dremmel i am gong to destroy it.

mom was at the store today waiting for the cashier to ring up her order and a woman with 2 small girls was in front of her. the littles girl was whinning for some candy and the mom kept saying no so the little girl picked up a candy bar and bite into it through the wrapper and all and then placed it back with the other candy. the little girl then noticed mom was staring at her watching her bad behavior and gave mom this cutey pie smile. for one of the few times in moms life she kept her mouth shut and face expressionless as she stared down the little brat who then burst into tears and ran to her mommy. mom thinks she taught the little girl a lesson but isn't quite sure what. either don't do that again or to be more sneaky. mom is hoping for the first result. by the way don't ever buy the candy near the checkout counter at any store.

It's been a pretty summer here so far, too. Mom's coneflowers, sunflowers, calendula, marigolds, orange cosmos, regular cosmos, and so many other things are in bloom right now, and the grass is still green.
It's cooler here today than it has been for a couple of days, only going into the mid 70s today. That's good pool weather though. Mom will spend the afternoon reading by the pool, then do some grocery shopping which is really needed at this point. (She only had 7 things to cut up into the our bowls today.) Later we will celebrate Falco's hatchday with songs, special treats, and maybe a new toy. She's hoping to get her favorite popcorn nutriberries. ♫Happy Hatchday to Falco! ♫ Come on over for some cake and nutriberries later! We can all watch as Falco opens her gifts. Hugs, Willie

today when mom turned on the bathroom faucet the water was only trickling and all the other faucets in the house were working normally . mom was afraid of another broken pipe so dad called the plumber who for $85 unscrewed the filter from the faucet, cleaned it off and screwed it back on. it took him 5 minutes. no broken pipes and no leaks.

it then stopped raining so mom thought a good time to pull weeds while the ground is wet. outside she went and was working away and noticed the little bunny that lives in the yard was standing right beside her eating the weeds. mom said hello little bunny and he twitched his nose and continued eating. he was only about 2 feet from mom.
then a yellow jacket came out of nowhere and stung mom on the arm. mom screamed and the little bunny ran away. the bee got mom good because its 7 hours later and her arm is still stinging like crazy and all swollen up. its also been raining every since.

DONT FORGET TO WATCH THE SUPERMOON TONIGHT!

The moon that rises tonight (Saturday) is what has come to be called a “supermoon” — because it’s both only hours from being perfectly full and hours from one of the year’s closest approaches to Earth. This combination makes the moon appear bigger and somewhat brighter than usual, even for a full moon. And because the moon always looks larger as it rises, moonrise Saturday night may show off a moon that appears about as big, bright and round as the moon can get. As the moon rises in the southeast at Saturday evening (at 8:30 or so on the East Coast) it will move west across the dark heavens through the night and early morning before setting in the southwest on Sunday morning.

  Hi Dandy
Thanks so much for BOTD! I was a happy boy yesterday. Mom topped off the basil plants and gave me all the flowers to munch! What a treat. I didn't get a new pinata, though. She says that's coming in a few days.
It has been pretty dry here. There have been lots of showers and scattered thundershowers in the Pittsburgh area for the past week, but they seem to be bypassing us. It rained the other day for about 3 minutes, and that's all. Mom is watering all the pots daily, and needs to get the hose out to soak the ground a little.
Tonight mom is working an evening event in Dinosaur hall, which should be fun. She likes doing evening events, and it is only scheduled til 7:30, so she should make it home before dark. We will have her attention and cage cleaning skills when she gets back. It should be a pool day, too.
Falco is still fighting mom on the meds and limping, but each day her leg looks a bit better. Mom's hands are beginning to look shredded, though. Hahaha!
I hope you are having a great day and getting sun and love. Hugs, Willie

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

  Hi Dandy
Thanks for helping me to be BOTD today! I'm so happy to be in the castle for a day.
Mom is trying her best to get an appointment for the cataract removal, but so far, no luck. She's waiting for a phone call which may get her an appointment sooner than the end of the month.
There's not much news here. It's going to be a lazy summer day with mom at the pool and later spending time with us, hopefully outside if it's not too hot.
Falco's still limping, but mom thinks her leg is looking better. Did I tell you she clipped Falco's wings? After leading her on a 15 minute tour of the house the other night because she didn't want to go to bed, mom finally took her into the kitchen, and clipped her.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some sunshine and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
kind of a gloomy day with rain on and off all day long. around 6 pm the clouds parted and a ray of sunshine came through the gloomy sky.

mom has been suspended from Facebook again because of a inappropriate comment she posted on a video of a blue and gold macaw chained to a steel perch saying WTF. it turns out the blue and gold macaw is owned by the raper ludicrous and i guess he was offended by moms comment. mom is standing by what she said even if it was said in an inappropriate manner. no parrot should be chained and forced to stand on a steel perch. obviously the parrot chews the wooden perches so that was taken away from it. all mom said was are you too cheap and lazy to care for your parrot properly. this is a form of parrot abuse. of course mom didn't use those exact words.

love Boo Boo

Great to hear from you! I like when mom is here with us, not at the center. She seems to like it there, though. Hope you are having a good day today. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
today mom was awakened very early this morning with the sound of old people talking. mom tried to go back to sleep but they just kept droning on and on but mom couldn't understand a word they were saying. finally mom got up and looked out the window to see we these old people were. it turns out there were 4 crows standing on the edge of the birdbath and having quite a conversation with each other. it reminded mom of her mother inlaw who used to live in Florida at the retirement community and how everyone would gather around the pool to talk. it made mom smile to see the crows doing the same thing.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Dandy
That sounds like a wonderful plan, wish mom would have everyone over here so she wouldn't have to go out, but we don't even own a grill any more, since she is the only human in the house.
Falco chewed at the bandage so much last night that her leg was bloody again this morning. Mom cut off the remaining bandage, cleaned her up as well as she could, put ointment on, then gave her the meds. She has turned her back on mom!
At the center mom was in the avian nursery this morning. What a large variety of birds in there today! Besides pigeons and doves, there were crows, screech owlets, sparrows, finches, ducklings, cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, sapsuckers, and a few others. There was also a wood turtle, heehee. They didn't have room anywhere else to put her.
I hope you are having a happy Fourth of July celebrations today. Mom is going to her niece's house, then coming back here well before dark to take care of us and give us all scritches. Don't forget Dixie and Little Angel are getting married at 6 tonight! Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
the township we live in and the utility companies all say they have a right of way to our property of about 4 to 5 feet.of course every time they repave the roads they cut another foot off of our property. we have a corner lot so they are taking it on 2 sides. it is our property. it has taken mom over 30 years to get the forsythia bushes to grow because on one side it is a steep hill. first mom grew ivy to hold the soil in place so it wouldn't erode and then started planting the bushes their is a telephone poll on the edge and the utility company last year had orders to cut down all the "weeds" near the pole. mom said those aren't weeds but forsythia bushes and you can't cut them. so instead they cut down all the cherry trees on the side of the road stating they are weed trees. these people who do this kind of work don't seem to be very intelligent. anyway the hillside is no longer eroding much because of the good root system mom has established but it is a continuing battle to explain this to the workers. even though the shrubs look all chopped on the edge from mom pruning them the hillside looks very nice and provides a lot of privacy for the parents and cover for birds and wildlife and yes unfortunately lots of black snakes. for some reason the township is determined to destroy our property but the parents will never give up on fighting them.

I killed a big black ant that was running across the carpet in the bedroom tonight. i took it part segment by segment. mom couldn't watch. I didn't eat it because it tasted bitter so mom picked up all the body parts and flushed them down the toilet.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Dandy
NO, keep all those wasps and mosquitoes there, thanks! I love my pinatas still, but I am having a ball with the wood. I've been pushing my food door open for mom now so she can put the dish right in there for me, heehee. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
it seems like a tiny hummingbird would be a lot of work to catch by the crows and hawks since they can't dart back and forth. we haven't seen any hummers for about 2 weeks and think they must be sitting on their nests now. then when the babies leave the nest there will be a lot of hummers back at the feeder but not the parents because after the babies leave the nest they fly back to mexico. then in the fall we get a lot of hummers flying down from the north that stop off and they are the ones that get caught in the storms. can you imagine those little things flying in hurricane weather?

  Hi Dandy
i hope you remember when the snake tried to come through the window to eat me (see picture in my photo gallery) well i found out this interesting fact about snakes.

Just about everybody on this planet seems to believe that snakes can unhinge their top and bottom jaws—this is not true. The remarkable thing about the snake jaw is that the two halves of the lower jaw are not connected at the front. This allows them to swing away from one another and to work independently to pull food into the muscular throat.

Besides their wide-opening jaws, snakes have a hard-cased skull in order to prevent brain damage from large thrashing animals clasped in their jaws. And perhaps most importantly, considering how long it takes to swallow a huge, mouth-filling living thing, they are able to shunt their respiratory tube to the side so they can still breathe, even with a chicken egg lodged in their throat.

Just one more example of how creatures have evolved abilities that let them thrive in the wild…

  Hi Dandy
I still like my pinatas, too. It's a toss up some days, whether I will chew wood or tissue and cardboard, heehee. I took the roof off a St. Francis statue when I was across the room, but mom didn't mind that, as long as I don't poop on his head, heehee. Hope you are having a fun day. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
forward to all your friends...
This is true, and also applies to cell phones!)
PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
if you receive a telephone call from an individual identifying
himself as an AT&T Service Technician (could also be Telus) who is conducting a test on the telephone lines.and to complete the test you should touch nine (9), zero (0), the pound sign (#), and then hang up. PLEASE REFUSE. by pushing 90#, you give the requesting individual full access to your telephone line,which enables them to place long distance calls billed to your home phonenumber. this scam has been originating from many local jails/prisons. DO NOT press 90# for ANYONE...
After checking with Verizon they also said it was true, so do not dial 90# for anyone !!!!!
PLEASE HIT THAT FORWARD BUTTON AND PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!!
