How my tiel and I got together was just a miracle. I had lost my first tiel in 98 and was hoping one would drop on my doorstep and in 2002 we were supposed to babysit him for his previous mommy and she passed away and her friend asked if we would keep him for our own. I was so happy! cause I needed a tiel to fill the hole my first tiel left. Of course my peach fronted conure arrived the day after he died but it was only a tiel that could fill up that hole. I love my conure because she makes me laugh and keeps me happy. I was even happier when Peepers came to fill that void, the void needed by another tiel. I became the owner when my mom asked me if I wanted to keep him and I was like heck ya, I love this tiel so much! I heard his previous mommy wanted to make sure he was in a loving home before she died and he sure is!.

Hi! My name is Peepers

I am a Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel from Marstons Mills, MA.

Peeps,Big Boy,

24 years old   M

Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel

nutraberries,pa- sta,animal crackers,apple peels,

i like to hang out on the playpen with my 4 conure brothers/sister- s and my pesky lutino brother and on my mommys shoulder.

I dont like showers but mommy makes me go with her but hey at least im a clean boy!, when my brother Mario steals MY perch(Lutino Cockatiel),when i gotta be stuck in the cage when mommy goes to work cuz i like to hop onto the floor because she doesnt want me getting hurt,

I love my mommy cuz she takes real good care of me and gives me lots of loves, she says im a special boy cuz i eat with my foot like a parrot she takes me on car rides, walks on my neat neon yellow harness and leash which i hate but wearing that leash means going out so i gotta be a good boy for mommy and wear it,she likes to snuggle with me and i with her. for my birthday she makes me a special birdie cake topped with seeds cuz i only get pellets for my meals cuz she thinks pellets are alot more healthier for me than seeds and they taste good too! the fruity ones are my fave! im just soo happy she adopted me cuz im happy that i found her and made her soo happy again! me being left at her house was a miracle to her and to me too cuz i have 5 brothers/sister- s for company when mommy goes to work.

i like to eat with my foot like a parrot mommy thinks its soo COOL when i do that,I like to hold my foot up when i sing and she thinks thats soo CUTE!, mommy taught me to play dead, i just lay on my back in the palm of her hand real still she thinks thats soo Cute as well and hopping on the floor and going for a run catch me if u can cuz my little pink tiel legs can move!.

"where there is floor tiel will travel, watch your step cuz im goin for a run!".

  HI Peepers
I hope you don't lose power at all, and that dad gets home safely. I'll invite Hulk and Raffi and Kaji to Name that Tune, so I hope they show up.
The name of that brand that mom did the other night with General Tso's Chicken was Innovasians. They also have orange chicken and Chinese fried rice.
We're having an indoor day today, since it's snowing pretty hard outside now. It's supposed to snow between now and tomorrow and dump a few inches. The weather guy said it would be like living in a snow globe, since the snow would come and go like a snow globe getting shaken. So far it's just coming, not going. It's not laying on the road yet, but the grass and trees are covered. Mom and the dogs got all snow covered when they walked this morning.
The weather gives mom a perfect excuse to stay inside, get caught up with laundry, mostly sheets and towels, read, and of course, listen to the music she loves. Today it's all opera, all day! We will be sure to get lots of attention as well. There's really nothing else to report, so I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of well deserved attention, cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Oh, yeah the old movie rental places charged eggstra if didn't return within a week. Two day rental for new releases. At least if checked 'em out at the library could keep 'em for three weeks. Parronts only rented a movie if intending to watch it that same day. Think RedBox is the only company around here.

Yesterday some of the puter programs weren't working. It was a nationwide issue so just had to wait until it got fixed. Sure makes harder to get things done!

Need to meld our weathers again. CA is too warm and you are too cold. Sure could use all your eggcess snow as it would melt and fill the reservoirs. Hopefully no more power loss for you.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel hug and hold on tightly for a long time. No birdie wants to be the first to let go. It isn't long before all of 'em are swaying and humming happily.

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

  HI Peepers
I hope your power stays on no matter what happens. It's awful to get cold on top of everything else.
It was nice to talk to your mom last night. We all stayed quiet while they were on the phone, too. What a surprise that was!
Happy Chinese New Year Everybirdie! It's the Year of the Monkey, I wonder if that gives us all a chance to act like monkeys all year long? Congratulations to the Broncos, too. We didn't watch the game, but Lady Gaga did one great job with the National Anthem, and Beyonce did a fine halftime show. We tuned in to that to see Santana play a little.
Mom finished the Pterosaur book, watched the videos from the AMNH website, watched the Puppy Bowl, and even turned on the Fish Bowl for a few minutes.
Mom cleaned the mammal nursery today, with 3 squirrels and 2 possums, all adults. None of them was ready to go outside yet, though, they each need some extra care. The little flying squirrel has a stash of around 2 pounds of nuts that she's keeping in a pillowcase in her cage. Everyone is letting her keep them. We think when she gets released, she'll have a stash to start with in the spring.
Someone brought in a fennec fox! These guys are desert foxes who live in the Sahara. He said he found it on his back porch, didn't know what it was, and brought it to us. The poor little thing is emaciated and dehydrated, as well as blind in one eye. They are keeping him in the treatment room for now and trying to bulk him up a little. If he survives, we think he'll be going to the zoo or to some kind of sanctuary. It makes mom so angry when people take wild animals and try to make them pets. There are enough dogs, cats, and other animals who make good pets already.
It's supposed to snow here tonight through Wednesday, but we'll see what happens. Those guys are wrong probably more than they are right. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Mostly our dad will watch the free movies as apparently many out there he hasn't seen. Some are bad so can then understand why never heard of 'em. Occasionally will rent one if less than the cost of going to the movie and only if fairly new. Really should not be any charge for any movie more than a year or two old.

Can only send in three scanners at a time for repair. Guess still have three (or more) to send in. If mom knew how awful their equipment was would've asked if the one from her old store could've been sent there.

That is good if people are getting stocked up for the coming blizzard as no one needs to be out in that. Mom found the grocery rather busy when she stopped on the way home. Didn't realize the game started so early here so missed the anthem, coin toss, etc. Hopefully your mom and Nana got fully stocked with supplies while out. So nice for a young person to offer Nana the seat at the froyo place.

If the heavy snow on tree limbs bends 'em so obviously people should know never to walk or stand underneath. As you mentioned they snap and hit and all that weight can be fatal. Again, so, so glad not to have to shovel!

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time. Soon all three are humming and swaying together in happiness.

  HI Peepers
Poor dad! That's a long time to stay at work, and he has a hard job too. I hope he gets to stay home today and rest for a little bit before tomorrow's snow hits. Wow, another 5 inches? That's enough to make plowing and shoveling necessary again.
We now have images of pterosaurs on all of our pages. Mom tried to photograph the book on Pterosaurs, but it's shiny and that didn't work well. We got some images from the AMNH website to show everyone, and if you want to look it up for yourselves, this page shows a lot of what's in the exhibit and the book. We're just teasing you with a few images. You can go to AMNH.org/pterosaurs and see for yourself lots of what's on display. There have been about 150 different species of pterosaur fossils found, ranging in size from ones that will fit in your hand to Quetzlcoatlus northropi, which has a wing span about the length of a city bus and weighed between 180-250 kilograms! That's 550 lbs. at its heaviest. He stood about the height of a giraffe.
You might be able to access some of the short movies that are being shown, too. One big thing to remember is that they are NOT dinosaurs. They, like crocodiles and dinosaurs, all belong to the archosaur family, but they are cousins, at best. One of the things mom loved seeing is that they all had a fine hairy coating, probably to keep them warm.
I hope everyone wasn't bored by that, mom is finding them very interesting. Don't forget to vote in the milonga contest today and every day. I hope you are having a sunny day today. We are, and the temps are already in the 40s, but we know the cold is coming back soon. Make sure you get lots of attention today! Lots of cuddles and scritches should be coming your way.

  Hi, Peepers
Some of the gaming systems have the blu ray built in but don't have those either. The parronts don't rent many movies anyway.

After a slow start at work it got busy. Many of the handheld scanners aren't working so mom helped out with the returns and cashiering since couldn't really do any labeling. She'd already put out all the sale signs. Today everyone eggspects it to be slow due to the SuperBowl.

Heard about a tree falling around here on someone and being fatal. Think it was a tree that had been reported and wasn't taken care of due to unclear on what agency was responsible. Terrible when things like tree branches fall thru no fault of the victim. Never thought about tree limbs being so heavy with snow that could cause 'em to fall. Another danger of snow.

Remaining warmish for us. Very nice but rather have rain. Glad your power outage wasn't too long but know how quickly it can get cold and good the flock was snug underneath your mom's coat.

What a scary thing to happen! I'm glad you are all warm now and the power is back. Maybe mom should think of getting a cell phone for emergencies like that. As long as she keeps it charged, she will be able to call out and receive calls on it. I hope dad got home safely and you are all okay today. Mom will call later to check on everyone.
We finally got some pics posted of the new chair: the first pic in the gallery is a close up of the pattern, but doesn't show the colors well, so the second one is the colors. The pillow on there is one mom cross stitched a few years ago. The third pic is mom's left hand, new polish.
Mom was at the museum today doing another spotlight of Archaeopteryx for a couple of hours. It was much more relaxed than last week, though. She only saw about 90 people. It's always fun to do those spotlights, because there are lots of interesting questions and comments.
The weather today is in the mid 40s, it's really sunny and pretty, too. We think that's not going to last long, though we can't complain about winter this year. It's been really mild.
Now that mom is home, she's ours, all ours, for the rest of the day! We hope you will all go to the milonga page and vote every day for each category. If you don't have the page number, go to my aviary and hit the biggest avatar, the pink and purple one.

  Hi, Peepers
Think the VCR the parronts saw was a combo VCR/DVD one. That's the kinda they already have but dad was thinking of having it in the eggstra bedroom since have a TV there. They never switched to blu-ray.

No point in skinbro updating that TomTom since has the GPS in his phone. Just has to ensure he always has a car charger since skinsis says using GPS drains the battery quick.

Mom managed to get all her work done yesterday. Good thing as there will be more sale signs and such to do over the w/e. At least there was more coverage during the mid part of the day and everyone was available to help out on the registers and returns when it got busy.

Best to stay in if at all possible with those treacherous roads and low visibility. So many accidents could probably be avoided if people did the shopping before the stormy conditions.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time. Soon the guitars come out and Silver begins to sing 'Livin' On Love' by Alan Jackson. Pearl and Peepers harmonize and join in on the chorus.

this is not an infomercial. mom was very excited when she found this website. tired of being in a culture of waste and contributing to the massive landfill dilemmas. remember when products from the 50's lasted forever and if you are lucky enough to still own any chances are they are still working. now their is a website that only stocks products that guarantee they will last a lifetime
Tired of replacing stuff? Buy Me Once solves that problem. i suggest you check it out. they don't carry everything and are interested in know about things you think are excellent products.

  HI Peepers
Many museums don't allow photography at all, but the Carnegie does if it's their collections. This is a traveling exhibit, so that's why no pics are allowed. Mom will try to photograph a page or 2 in the book, though, to show everyone here on BC.
We just got our electric meter replaced. The guy told mom our power would be out for 10 seconds, so mom shut down the computer and waited. He just drove away, and the power never went off. Mom is going to have to see if the new meter is out there.
We had a few snow flurries this morning, but it's all clear and sunny now. It's supposed to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, too, but today's high is only around 38. It's been a mild winter so far.
This morning mom and Asmita, another volunteer, had the Runs to clean. That is an area where some of the education animals live, and there are some rehab patients in there too. The education animals in there are the turkey vultures, Sid, Vince, and Tony, and the 5 turtles. There are also some snapping turtles in there, a beautiful male mallard, a porcupine, and a broad winged hawk. It's always an interesting place to clean, because you never know who's going to be in there.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sister, but she's ours for the rest of the day. We put some of our latest reads on the library page for anyone who's interested. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Peepers
Think most of us have just adjusted to not being able to edit, delete eggstra blogs, etc. Not long ago the parronts saw a VCR player at Target. Dad thought of buying it but don't really need it as ours still works but don't use it might. Check websites to see if stores still have any just in case since still want to record things. The parronts cable system will record shows for 'em so makes it much more convenient. Of course if something want to save then would have to use the VCR and a tape.

Most GPS do fine. They do give the disclaimer to be sensible if the instructions don't seem correct since roads can change. Hence the need to update.

Hopefully that upcoming storm isn't too bad but know your dad and his crew will be well prepared. Know your mom will ensure plenty of food supplies will go with him.

Busy, busy for mom at work since they were down a person so has to play catch up today. Everyone has things to do but shoppers must always come first.

mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave me a nice shower and then bow dried me. my feather feel very soft now and i spent about an hour preening myself after wards. Boo Boo watch all this and thought to herself thank god its not me

  HI Peepers
Mom made that joke about 20 minute lunch because for many years at school, that's all the time teachers got for lunch. Mom's lunch yesterday was longer than 20 minutes, they spent over 2 hours talking and looking at old and new pictures. Mom had a great time.
I haven't even looked at the new chair yet. Falco keeps going over there and getting chased off, though.
This morning mom had a tour with 4 year old kids again. They were there to learn about animals, and their chaperons insisted on the full hour tour! By the end of 45 minutes, mom's group and all the others she could see were getting restless, wandering off, talking to each other, etc, but mom, like the other docents, kept on going for the hour. Mom also found out that she can't take pics in the Pterosaur exhibit. She suspected as much, because the usual rule in the museum is that what belongs to them can be photographed, but not what doesn't. There is a nice book that mom will buy which goes along with the exhibit. Maybe we'll be able to share pics from there.
Now that she's home, mom is ours for the rest of the day. She got a load of laundry done the other day, so maybe today she'll get sheets and towels done, too. You never know...
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Don't forget to submit your pics for the Valentine contest on the Milonga page. Voting starts tomorrow! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Thanks for liking our new pic. Made it in time to enter the contest, whew!

Very irksome when can't edit after sending when see misspelling or some other error and being unable to delete a blog sent twice is also a pain in the tailfeathers. However, BC is still here so for despite the occasional problems we are happy to be visiting our friends.

Yeah, time does go very slowly when not much to be done and no customers. At mom's old store could always clean.

Hopefully that VCR will stay programmed. Could possibly having quick power glitches that makes it need resetting. Some old electronics are sensitive that if even if the power went off for a few seconds they'd need redoing. Annoying but at least your mom knows how to get it back to normal.

Sometimes those GPS gets confused as to where something is actually located. Dad has one and supposed to update it by plugging it into his puter as roads and locations can change.

Thanks so much for the hatchday wishes, I had a great day!
The chair is here! Falco landed on it first thing, but mom chased her off. We don't know why. We'll post a pic later. I got 3 new toys for my hatchday, so I was happily making toothpicks last night.
Today we are writing a short blog, because mom is meeting a couple of other retired teachers for lunch. She has to be there at 11:30, so it sounds like the old days at school. We are hoping they will have more than 20 minutes to eat, haha! After that, she has a ton of errands to run. We need wild bird food, she needs to return a gift, check out what happened to her Barnes and Noble membership, get to the bird warehouse here and buy more pellets, and a few other things. We think she'll be gone all afternoon, even if lunch is only 20 minutes long.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of attention as is your right! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Rarely check to see if a blog lands on a page. Maybe we should as never know these days if the site will glitch. However, before we send we always copy the blog in case we have to resend it. Always irksome if have to rewrite a long blog.

Mom can always find something to do at work. At mom's old work the manager always had a list of things each team member was to do. The cashiers could always be cleaning their areas, keeping the pegs nearby neat, etc, etc.

Last night mom was making us a Valentine's pic. She was nearly done with the puter had a problem and closed and reopened the page and she hadn't saved so had to do the pic all over again. At least we can be in the contest.

Had more rain yesterday. Over by the time the parronts went out for a few errands. Temps were mild so only needed a light jacket.

I hope you're entering those 2 pics in the valentine contest on the milonga page. I think they're both spectacular! The one with you and Baby Girl looks so sweet.
I hope also that mom got to do some things she wanted yesterday. 52 sounds like the way it's been here. We had a frost last night, though, so we think winter is on its way back in.
It's my hatchday today! Mom hasn't given me my presents yet, but I bet they are going to be great ones, haha. Maybe I'll even get a new pinata.
Today is groundhog day, and we don't know what Phil said yet. By the way, it's normal for a male groundhog to get up this time of year and go visit the females in his territory. He'll bed down when his visits are over, and get up with the girls in the spring.
The new chair comes today, and it's going to look kind of funny with the old sofa, but that will only be a couple of months. They gave mom a spray to put on the new furniture which is supposed to be eco friendly, and it doesn't seem to have any odor, so mom will spray the chair tonight, but she'll probably move it into the dining room to do that, just in case. It's supposed to make the upholstery more stain resistant.
There's not much going on today, just some general chores, a little shopping (we're out of Falco food, grapes and broccoli), some laundry, and maybe that book will get finished today.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and a ton of attention. Hugs, Willie

We are just glad BC is still around despite the errors. It is irksome when it happens but glad it doesn't last too long.

Always good to get savings wherever one can. The baby store will take coupons from their competitor so shoppers will buy something rather than going to the other place.

Busy, busy for mom at work since had the new baby catalog starting, the regular price changes and then there was a meeting with the store managers boss. That took up part of the work time but then the boss stayed to help put up the big signs.

We won another jukebox? WhoooHoooo! Everybirdie has liked the bubble and the underwater prize pics. We'll have to fly over and pic another one and check the email.

  Hi Peepers
Crowds of 30,000 people now swarm Punxsutawney to watch Phil make his annual prediction. There could be some truth to the link between clear weather on Feb. 2 and a longer winter — since sunny days in winter are often caused by cold, dry air masses, and cloudy days tend to result from moist, mild ocean air. wild groundhogs in North America often hibernate into late February and March — suggesting they may know winter isn't over without even stepping outside on Groundhog Day.

the groundhog is the largest species of ground squirrel in North America.
They dig extensive burrows that can be up to 5 feet deep and 45 feet long and
are one of the few true hibernators, relying entirely on body fat to make it through winter. Their heartbeat slows from about 75 beats per minute to as few as 4, and their body temperature drops from the 90s into the 40s (Fahrenheit).
An internal biological clock controls when wild groundhogs wake up from hibernation, but their actual emergence from the burrow depends more on daily temperature than intuition.Even aside from dedicating a holiday to it, Americans and Canadians have been very good to the groundhog. The species was relatively scarce when Europeans first settled the continent, but as settlers fragmented forests to set up farms and towns, they created more of groundhogs' favorite habitat — the edge between open and woodland areas — while also killing wolves, cougars and other top predators. Although groundhogs thrived and expanded their range, however, they still usually try to avoid contact with people.

That same thing was happening to us yesterday, too. Mom finally got on at 10! It was good that we got on, but it was so late, we only did c/p for everyone. Usually mom likes to put a little personal note in with it.
It's pretty nice here today, in the high 40s to low 50s but cloudy. We hope the plants aren't too upset with this winter, because we know they need the cold to produce pretty springtime flowers. Mom keeps telling them to stay underground for awhile longer. Since the weather is so mild, folks at the wildlife center have a pool going for when the first baby squirrels will arrive. The earliest date is next week, the latest is around March 20th. Mom thinks around the 16th of March, but that's probably too late. Squirrels breed according to photoperiod, not weather, so she might be right after all. Owls and hawks have already laid eggs, or will do so soon, so their babies can take advantage of spring, too.
Today at the center was disinfection day. Mom and another volunteer were assigned to do the menagerie. It takes a long time to disinfect, so 2 people or more are needed in a large area. Mom did some laundry and dishes, and prepared diets for the animals in the menagerie while waiting for the bleach to take effect. (Once everything in the enclosure is either discarded or otherwise removed for cleaning, the walls, floor, and ceiling are sprayed with disinfectant, which has to sit for 10 minutes.) It's a monthly protocol in the menagerie.
Now that she's home, she's with us the rest of the day, YAY! I think she might do some laundry, but otherwise she'll be playing with us and reading.
I hope you are having a great day today, and getting lots of parront time, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Glad we didn't have the BC error yesterday since we had dealt with it a couple of days previously. Good it came back fairly quickly but know it impacts when can't blog when one wants or has time.

Not sure why Mar is busy month for baby store. Right now the trade in is going on and that'll keep things busy. Always seems to be a new catalog each month with coupons too.

More rain here. Not very heavy but if continue to get some each week thru Mar then maybe we'll get outta this drought. Temps dropped and the wind is cold but not bad.

Gotta make a new Valentine's pic. Know there's a Milonga contest going on and we'll want to enter. Tomorrow mom has off so will try to do it then.

The three 'tiels all open their wings up wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight. No birdie wants to be the first to let go. The humming and swaying of happiness starts immediately.

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

  Hi Peepers
Groundhog Day is coming
Phil is 130 years old, supposedly. The average groundhog lives to be between 6-8 years, but Phil takes a magical elixir every summer to extend his lifespan. The elixir also changes his appearance which explains why Phil may be grey one year and a youthful brown the next. the elixir does not work on humans. it just makes them fat and baldThe groundhog's name is Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Prophet Extraordinary.When Phil comes out of his stump on Gobbler's Knob on Groundhog Day, he has a conversation with the president of the Inner Circle of the Groundhog Club in Groundhogese. The president then announces Phil's prediction. he's never wrong, however,if the president doesn't translate Phil's prediction accurately -- which is why sometimes it looks like Phil got it wrong.

Phil weighs about 20 pounds. He is 22 inches long, while the average groundhog weighs 12-15 pounds and is 20 inches long.Phil has had many wives. While Phil has an extended lifespan, his wives do not partake in the elixir so they pass away like normal groundhogs do. Phil always finds love again, though. Phil's current wife is called Phyllis While there is nothing wrong with Phil reproductively Phil has no children - he and his wife decided they are really too busy to raise a family. But that doesn't mean he does not love kids.He considers everybody under 127 years old his kids. Phil has such a full schedule he was not able to partake in the filming of the movie. In the Bill Murray movie he is played by a groundhog named Scooter - who bit the actor three times during filming.Handling Phil is a dangerous Groundhog Day task because of his fondness for biting.He once threatened to impose 60 weeks of winter if he didn't get some booze during Prohibition. Oat and honey granola bars are Phil's favorite food, in particular Nature Valley ones.He has a special car called the Philmobile. It's a little bus that houses members of the Inner Circle. Phil has a special seat on the outside, so he can be seen on parades.Oftentimes during summer parades, crowds will panic as the Philmobile draws through because they will see Phil lying flat on his back, legs in the air looking dead. But he isn't, this is just how groundhogs cool off Some people get upset when he calls for six more weeks of winter,but it's not his fault that he sees that coming."

  HI Peepers
I just love your pic!
Wow, we are here, and hope we can get all our blogs done before this messes up again. Mom tried twice today to sign on unsuccessfully. This is the third time, maybe it will work now.
Yesterday mom saw nearly 160 people at her station with the archaeopteryx skull and cast of the Berlin fossil. You've probably seen that one in books, it's very famous. After her shift, she went to see the new Pterosaurs exhibit. It's wonderful! There are models hanging above, including Quetzlcoatlus northropi fleshed out. We have one in the T Rex exhibit, a fossil cast, but seeing it 'in the flesh' is just overwhelming. That guy had a wing span the length of a bus. There were also some tiny ones, one fuzzy one with a frog mouth, several that we have on display, and some great pics of their crests. Mom will try for pics next time she's there, but the hall was so crowded yesterday taking pics was impossible. There are also 3 places where you can stand and fly like a pterosaur. When you move your arms, the pterosaur on the screen moves with you! Mom couldn't get close to that, the lines were long. There are some films about fossilization and the work that Dr. Habib did to put this together. By the way he was there in Dinosaur hall answering questions when mom was there with the Archaeopteryx. He was near the T Rex exhibit at a table.
Today mom went out and bought a new sofa and chair for the living room. The sofa we have is getting worn on the arms and seat from mom pulling dog hair off all the time. The wing chair is over 30 years old, so it's time to update a little.
The chair will be here Tuesday, but the sofa will not be ready for at least 8 weeks, possibly 12. Pics will be coming, though!
I hope everyone had a great day today, got lots of cuddles and scritches. We're in bed already, we gave mom a list of things to say. By the way, it was in the 60s today! Felt like spring. Hugs, Willie

  Hey Peepers!
I thought you'd might like a copy of your sermon today from Birdie Church at the KB. :)

Ahem, i'm Pastor Peepers of the Tiel species and I welcome you all to our makeshift church in the cafeteria today.

Ms Laka is serving Chocolate Mac Nut coffee this morning for those of you who need a boost while I give my birdie sermon.

The snacks will be served after church is done.

Today I would like to talk about forgiveness. Now in our life as parrots we have many decisions to make. Let's see for example to bite, or not to bite? Will it be fun? Will it taste good? That sort of thing. Pastor Peepers walks around as he talks and uses his wings as props.
See it is up to us as parrots to train our hoomans. Now a badly trained hooman does nothing for us. But a well trained hooman does wonders for all birdies.

For example if you have a favorite toy ball and you throw it on the floor. A good hooman will fetch it and bring it back to you, whereas a bad hooman will just leave it on the floor and pick it up later.

And in that sense forgiveness comes into play. You must forgive the hooman if he/she does not train well as it takes time. Who knows how long, it depends on the bird.

So I bid you all peace and happy hooman training all!!

Okay the snacks are all on the table now. We have pineapple cake, Andagi or Okinawan donuts, we have poi or the purple donuts and today only the pink donuts or strawberry donuts with no hole, cousin to the purple donuts if you will. :)

There are also fresh fruit for everyone to partake of on the other table. There's watermellon, apples, oranges, kiwi, guava, fresh strawberries and many many more. Everything is all cut up and ready to eat bite size. :) Eat till your hearts content, and thank you for attending the first ever Birdie Church Services, right here at the KB.

I'm Pastor Peepers have a great big birdie day everyone!

Aloooooooha!!

  Hi, Peepers
Awwww, such a cute pic of us 'tiels together celebrating Valentine's.

Our mom is glad she had the $$ saved so when CC bill arrives can just pay it. Hopefully skinbro can get those paychecks he's owed and can repay your mom. Good your mom is able to help him with his bills but know it makes it harder for her to keep up with hers. Hopefully he can learn to budget better and save more for these times of uneggspected things to pay.

Not sure would like having a pushbutton action thingy on cars. Having the camera to see when backing up is nice. Sounds like your mom's next car should be something from before 2014! Our mom too!

Busy, busy for mom at work yesterday. The manager said the w/e would be like that. The toy store was the same. Apparently in the baby store the busy month will be March. Have to ask if they do the dreaded overnights at holiday time but we sorta doubt it.

  Hi Peepers
Groundhog Day Facts
In 1723, the Delaware Indians settled Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as a campsite halfway between the Allegheny and the Susquehanna Rivers. The town is 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh,. The Delawares considered groundhogs honorable ancestors. According to the original creation beliefs of the Delaware Indians, their forebears began life as animals in "Mother Earth" and emerged centuries later to hunt and live as men.
The name Punxsutawney comes from the Indian name for the location
"ponksad-uteney" which means "the town of the sandflies."
The name woodchuck comes from the Indian legend of "Wojak,
the groundhog" considered by them to be their ancestral grandfather.
When German settlers arrived in the 1700s, they brought a tradition known as Candlemas Day, which has an early origin in the pagan celebration of Imbolc. It came at the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Superstition held that if the weather was fair, the second half of Winter would be stormy and cold. For the early Christians in Europe, it was the custom on Candlemas Day for clergy to bless candles and distribute them to the people in the dark of Winter. A lighted candle was placed in each window of the home. The day's weather continued to be important. If the sun came out February 2, halfway between Winter and Spring, it meant six more weeks of wintry weather.If the sun made an appearance on Candlemas Day, an animal would cast a shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of Winter. Germans watched a badger for the shadow. In Pennsylvania, the groundhog, upon waking from mid-Winter hibernation, was selected as the replacement.Pennsylvania's official celebration of Groundhog Day began on February 2nd, 1886 . The groundhog was given the name "Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary'' and his hometown thus called the "Weather Capital of the World.'' His debut performance: no shadow - early Spring.

The legendary first trip to Gobbler's Knob was made the following year.

Poor Nana, this cold weather isn't helping her at all, it seems to be aggravating all her pains and her coughing too. We feel so bad that we can't be there to help.
Mom is working at the museum today for Super Science day and the opening of Pterosaurs. She will finally get to see the exhibit after she finishes her shift in Dinosaur hall with the Archaeopteryx. She thinks both the skull and the cast fossil of the Berlin one will be available for hands on spotlight today.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of playtime, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Can't imagine spending so much for sleepwear either. If not the most comfy thing the cost would be too ridiculous even at the clearance price (unless it went down a lot more!)

Never fails. As soon as mom saves a bit of $$ then has to pay for car repair or something else. Hasn't shown up on her CC bill yet. The seat was able to move close enough to reach everything just took a while to figure out where the controls were to adjust things. Guess cameras in cars is a newer feature.

Hopefully docs can help Nana with those coughing fits. 45 min is just too long for that to happen. So scary when can't breathe properly. We'll keep our wings crossed for her.

  Hi Peepers
your Nana should tell her doctor that she wants a steroid inhaler to control her coughing fits. Advair is long term acting and takes about 20 minutes to work but should keep Nana from coughing all day long. then the short term non steroid inhaler is ventolin which works immediately. they don't want you to use it because it works. these medications are pricey but Nana would only use them when she needs to. the advaire would be only once a day and the ventolin could be used seveal times a day. she must insist she be prescribed these medications. if you don't insist you don't get anything.

  HI Peepers
Boy, your mom can't catch a break! It's good that Anthony made it home safely, though. Hope they both had fun with mom yesterday. Tell mom to get them involved in the work, hahaha!
Dinner last night with sis and brother in law was fun. Mom always loves seeing family and sharing stories.
This morning mom was up bright and early to feed us and the dogs, then go to the museum for training. Dr. Habib(the guy who set up this traveling exhibit) was only available from 8:30 to 10 today, so everyone had to hear him early. He was wonderful, though, and mom learned a lot about Pterosaurs for the new exhibit. Mike Habib is still on our museum's research team but he left the Carnegie a couple of years ago to go to USC, where he also conducts research and teaches. His specialty is flight in pterosaurs, and he has degrees in both paleontology and aerodynamics.
The exhibit was open today on preview to staff, but not until noon, so mom came home to walk the dogs instead. She will see the exhibit tomorrow, either before or after her shift. She is doing a 2 hour spotlight on Archaeopteryx, the first known bird. That will be in Dinosaur hall, but she can run upstairs afterwards.
Today it's snowing a little, but it's supposed to clear up soon and warm up a bit over the weekend. They are predicting temps in the 50s by Monday, but we'll see. It's pretty cold out today. At least mom is home with us for the rest of the day. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Yeah, if not at least 50% off then isn't worth getting those designer things. The markdown prices were $70-80? Yikes! Must mean the original price was over $100! Have to wonder if on clearance as no one would buy those things at the regular price.

The car repair was a lot! Works better though so hopefully doesn't need anything done to it any time soon. That rental wasn't push button. Never though about that but the car key was weird. Looked like a cylinder with grooves on the sides. There was a camera when backing up that came on to help see better. Mom had to push the seat all the way forward and the seat pushed up higher and the back up straight as she doesn't like it inclined. Hope the next driver can move stuff back heehee.

Would assume Dixie will just learn to adjust to what he can't see. Think he'll just be happy without having to take any meds or have drops in his eyes that partially impaired sight will be a breeze.

Glad skinbro is okay. Always worry about one's kids no matter their age eggspecially if do something not so safe.

tried blogging on BC last night but was having a lot of problems. it kept taking longer and longer for the pages to load and then when you would hit send comment you would have to login in to BC all over agin and then start over. finally it threw us off BC completely and then said error no page exits so we gave up.

today mom went to a bird breeder that lives in a nearby town called Millvale, at a store called Pretty Birds, to inquire about canaries. the owner almost threw mom out of the store and said he would never sell a canary to her because she would never listen to him. he told mom canaries only sing if hey are bored and he sells top singers. keep them in a tiny cage, never let them out and do not give them any toys to play with and under no circumstances should they have another companion canary because canaries only sing if they are bored and apparently extremely unhappy. mom said that is no way to treat a bird and she was more concerned that the bird be happy and healthy and he became incensed. mom doesn't understand why people have this reaction towards her. she has decided to never leave the house again since her mere presence is so upsetting. our frother told mom she has a knack for antagonizing people who don't agree with her and dad agreed. mom says its too bad if people don't like to hear her opinion and she doesn't push it down your throat but feels she has a right to one. mom feels if the canary was happy healthy and active it would sing for joy because if the show was on the other foot she knows she would.

It sounds like another really busy day for mom and Nana. It's great news that Dixie's eye is better, and a scar is not a bad result. Can he still see out of that eye? If so, that's good news. It's also great that he's off the meds!
The dogs are having a spa day, and mom is washing their bedding so they should smell good for at least a few days, haha. It's really good that they got walked before they went to the spa, because it's cold again, and mom wouldn't want to take them out after they've been shampooed.
Today is going to be a relaxing day; we will listen to some music, play with mom in between her chores, and have a good time until dinner, when we will be put in lockdown mode so mom can go out.
It's good to be indoor birds, for sure. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and having fun with toys. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Sometimes mom would find the designer or name brand stuff on clearance and if correct size would buy 'em then. That would be the only time get anything like that as normally price was too high.

Yesterday mom took her car in for maintenance since having to drive a farther distance. There was an issue she was concerned about and naturally something was broken and needs to be fixed. Gonna be some $$$ to repair and had to get a rental car. Very weird to have a different vehicle and has a lot of modern features.

That's wonderful that Dixie is finished with the meds. Think he'll just adjust to having a scar and hopefully doesn't overly impact his sight.

Maybe more homes are putting out bird feeders? That would account for less 'traffic' at yours. If so, that would be wonderful to have the supply there last longer. Sure hope doesn't mean less birds are thriving during winter.

  HI Peepers
Happy Birthday Mozart! We're listening to The Marriage of Figaro today, then maybe some Eine Kleine Nachtmusik later.
What an interesting day so far. Mom had an early tour this morning with 4 year old kids in dinosaur hall. When kids come in that small, they usually have parents with them, so mom's tour group consisted of 6 little ones and 8 adults. They were all adorable, but it was like herding cats. Some of them clung to the adult that was with them, 2 needed to have a drink of water RIGHT NOW, so they left the group to do that, then caught up later, and their attention was lost after 45 minutes. Mom called a halt to the tour at that point, and the parents were okay with it.
Then she had her performance review. This is done annually, so she was expecting it to happen soon. Her boss gave her a copy of the evaluation, and everything is good.
On the way home she stopped for some groceries, and saved over $25 by using coupons. We got some good stuff, the dogs got treats, and mom got a cod fillet for $.24 with a coupon for $2 off! Guess what's for dinner tonight?
Now that she's home, the rest of the day belongs to us and to the book she's trying to finish. We'll enjoy our music and mom's company. It's back into the 30s today, but it's winter after all. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and some nice weather, too. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Some stores never shop at unless they have a sale or shopping the clearance section only. Skinsis never cared about designer or name brand stuff and neither will the grand. Can find lots of nice things without overpaying.

Well, your skinbro also works and lives farther away and those who live closer should be embarrassed to not do their part. They can take turns and would imagine if a couple of 'em worked together get it done very quickly. Know not easy for your mom to do it either. Gosh, plowing with a truck should only be one cost but guess what they charge is what they charge.

Really is no rush for Nana to do any of her house chores. Safety and not falling again are more important.

Another nice day here. Forecast still has rain for the w/e. Glad is warmer there to melt the snow so it isn't building up too high. Recall that after awhile no place to put snow cleared off streets and such if some hadn't melted.

One more day until mom starts at the new location. Looking forward to it.
