i happened to go into a pet store and saw this beautiful severe macaw. it wouldn't have anything to do with me and when i went near her she tried to bite me. a few days later my hubby and i were eating at a restaurant near the pet store and i persuaded my hubby to go in and see this beautiful macaw. it was love at first sight between the two and my hubby bought her on the spot. the next day after bringing her home and getting her settled into our home, Cori decided i was her mate and no one else. she allows my hubby to hold her but it is me she wants 24/7.

  Hi Coribell
The parronts visited at skinsis' today and Sophie was doing much better, however, right before the parronts left, Sophie threw up again, so mom is hoping that she isn't having a relapse. Sophie is Twixy's puppy from her last litter. Mom's on standby to help, except for Wednesday, as she has the eye doc.

Kisses for you, sweet Coribell,

Just a quick note tonight, mom is watching the Superbowl game. She would like to see the Broncos win, would like to see Peyton Manning go out on top!

Change of plans, mom & Liv aren't starting the crystals until Tuesday. Sis called this morning, Liv has pink eye, she's the last one in her family to get it! Mom wants to wait a couple days because her eye is swollen shut! I sure hope mom doesn't get it!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.
I hope you have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Cori,
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

Love,

  Hi Cori,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. So what kind of Cat does your Mom have? I'm sure he did feel so much better after his bath.

Mom did go to her Brother, Dave's 50th Birthday yesterday. Her Sister In Law, Jacqui makes all kinds of goodies. They had dips, crackers, cheese & flat bread pizza's for appetizers. She made Pork, Chicken, Twice Baked Potatoes, Salad and had Rolls for dinner. Jacqui made Dave a Fudge Brownie Cake (Dave is like my Mom, they both love sweets & chocolate) & their youngest Son, Nicholas told her to drip it with peanut butter, so she did LOL! She made a "5" & a "0". Mom didn't have her phone where she thought she did so her Niece, Kelsey took a few photos. Mom will probably post one on Facebook. Anyway, Mom always has a good time with her Family! Hope all is well in your Happy Home. Here's a vote for you, Cori. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)
P.S. Mom could care less about the Super Bowl but does like the commercials and half time. She can't wait to watch the Kitten & Puppy Bowls LOL!

  Hi Cori,
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

Thank you for you votes and support.

  Hello Cori~
I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

I want to give a very big thank you to SweetPepper & her sweet mom for making my awesome Valentine's Milonga pic! Thank you sooooo much!!!

Mom left for 1 1/2 hrs today to get some supplies for Livi's science fair project. Mom is going to her house tomorrow morning to start working on sugar crystals. Livi is in a girls' basketball league so mom has to work around her practice schedule. I'm sure not going to like being in lockdown every time she leaves!

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Thanks for the information on buymeonce site! Sure would be nice to have somewhere to buy things that last like they used to.
This morning I kept flying to mom and she would let me sit on her shoulder and help her. She was just messing with making a card so it was no big deal. Once she got done with that and I flew to her she held me and said I was going to get a bath since it was time so we did that . I got a pecan for my treat so it wasn’t a bad trade off and then I got wrapped in my fluffy towel and went in the bathroom when I got my feathers blow dried. Oh that sure makes a fid feel great. Of course I kept thinking all day and begging too for another pecan but mom wouldn’t budge…if only I could get that refrigerator door open I would help myself!! “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Thanks for the website tip. Mom will check it out, and I know Dad will love it!!

Yep, the voting has begun in the February Valentine's Milonga Pic Contest (hefty title, isn't it?). We are already getting lots of votes, so I want to thank all the voters and remind everybirdy else to get their tailfeathers on over to page #165848 and support your favorites. There are four categories, so four votes per flock per day. That's a lot of votes between now and the 17th, so get busy.

It is nice here today, but so far not quite warm enough to get outside. However tomorrow they are predicting a high of 80, with 80 or a little more through Friday. The warm weather is greyt for my sunbaths, but there is not a drop of rain in that forecast. That is not a good thing at all.

Mom got her new book from Amazon to replace the one I chewed up, so she will be making a run to the library today. I will be losing her for an hour or so, and nobirdy to blame but myself. Phooey!

  Hi Cori
Mom had her mother's Lifetime pots and pans for the longest, and gave them to her grands when she replaced them with Cuisinart pans. Those were good, and she still has her mom's club aluminum pans which are fantastic. They really do last forever. Her daughter gave her a LaCrueset(sp?) stockpot recently, too.
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.
Have a great day today, get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cori
I am glad the Groundhog predicted an early spring for you! We saw some tulios in a store here! They must be imported as you never see them anyplace here! That is funny about bathing the cat and all. I am sure you also were glad it wasn't you, besides BooBoo! Tell BooBoo we all think she is so cute in her milonga contest picture! Is she really "Looking"? Hehehe! Isn't cookie on there for looking for love also? Maybe there is a match!
Sorry i have been off a few days! It is crazy here with the reno and the weather! It was in the 90s for a couple of days and then Thursday we had hurricane force winds, even knocked out a plate glass window in the living room of a house of my mom's friend! And it is still in the 60s, blowing and raining here!
Every day my parronts have had to go hunting for tile for the house or for something the workers need. Today dad is running errands and mom baked a cake for the workers. She is making cheese soup too. She does that when it is cold! We are all inside watching her!
Anyway, my parronts found a tile they wanted at Home Depot. They couldn't find any boxes of the tile though so they asked a worker for help. The worker said it was in back in the storeroom and did my parronts actually want it today? Another worker said he couldn't go back there until the evening to get it. They said yes and he said come back in an hour. So an hour later they go back and no tile! At this point they happened to run into the manager of that department who asked what they wanted and man, did he get those workers jumping to find the tile, load it in a cart and take it out to the truck! And they all apologized for making my parronts wait and have to return to the store and that it should never have happened! Interesting!
Well, this is greyt weather for napping! Have a nice weekend!

It was sunny today but no pool for us. I'm sitting on my perch wearing my flip flops and waiting for the warm weather. They say we'll have 60's (62 to 65) for another week, so sad.

  Hi Cori,
Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

This morning mom and I washed clothes and sheets and then we dusted and swept up the floor. I supervised from her shoulder and know she would of not done as good of a job with out my help. When mom was all done with that she got my lunch and then started cleaning the refrigerator and the freezer on the frig too. There was lots of nuts up in the freezer and other goodies that I kept trying to get my beak into. Once that was all cleaned out mom started taking all the shelves out and every thing on the shelves. By then dad kept coming into the kitchen and being in moms way too. Mom suggested he take me and go in some other room so she could get done LOL.

Well, Mom went to the GI doc yesterday, and as expected she will need to have an endoscopy. He also wants to put in a small wireless device that measures pH to monitor her acid for 2-3 days, but Mom is pretty sure the insurance people will not approve that. It is very leading edge, and insurance is always trailing edge.

It was warm enough for a sunbath today (73), but the wind is absolutely howling out there. I do not like the wind, so I am staying inside. It is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow and for the next week or so. Surely this wind will die down, and I will be able to catch some rays.

Today was the last day to enter the pic contest for the Valentine's Milonga. Entries will be closed in a couple of hours, but we have some wonderful pics entered, eggspecially in the Couples category. You can see the names of the entries now, and we will put up the pics by this evening. We are still missing one pic, but hopefully will have it in time.

That sure must've been a whole lot of work for your poor sweet Mom trying to comb out the cats hair then give him a bath and condition his hair along with the shampoo.I'll bet the cat really enjoyed being pampered with the refreshing bath and having his hair brushed and all that attention fawned over him.Oh you would think the kitty would let Aunt Carol have the brush so he could have more brushing time which surely must've felt so good!
I can't wait to have a nice shower!I'll bet you really enjoyed that shower and I just love being blow dried,the heat from the blow dryer feels so good and warming.Mom is so afraid to give us showers here because of the cold drafts that would be coming in.I can't wait til summer again so that we can have a shower everyday and being able to dry off in the sunshine!BooBoo is right to think that she doesn't have to go through all that hair brushing routine that the cat went through!

  My Sweet Coribell,
Well, mom just lost the long update blog she was writing to your mom. Dang. She is happy to have this new(er) computer, but it does strange things...sigh.

I am mad at mom for not letting me blog to you for over a week. I have missed you and it is all her fault. I say to her "droppings on your head" for keeping me from you. She has been busy, but, whatever.

She had to unexpectedly watch skinsis' puppydog, Sophie, on Wednesday. Sophie didn't eat or drink & was in the hospital on an IV Saturday-Monday. She kept throwing up & couldn't keep anything down. The skinkids brought her home on Monday night & Justin worked from home & watched her on Tuesday. Mom was there petting & snuggling her on Wednesday & apparently, she is on the mend. Thursday, mom went for a re-cut on a haircut she got Tuesday & then Bible Study. Then was on the phone with skinsis in Portland for quite a while. On Wednesday, mom had seen one of Portland skinsis' best friends in high school listed in the obituaries. Don't know what happened with her...only 38. Mom is going to try to go the funeral tomorrow. This girl was so sweet to skinsis & her parents were so kind. They even took skinsis with them on vacation. So sad.

Big, long, beaky kisses for you, my love,

Your Angelbird

I hope the cat feels better, and I know you do! 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.

  Hey Cori!
Wow...that a lot of work on your cat. She must have long hair. Combing out mats is such a tedious job! We saw something on tv...a special comb to use on mats.....and it is supposed to work well. Your mom might want to google that.
So you got a bath too?
Have a great day!
Love,
Raffikki

  Hi Cori & Boo Boo, cats are hard to groom properly
...however we admire your momma's patience! It seems like the hair knots and clumps can just pop up over night! Some seem large enough to hide a third world country in, LOL! Poor dad had the hardest time getting his old motor started this morning, he is not sick, he just don't feel well! He finally rolled out of bed, partly because of LaLo's noisy morning whistles, she wants her light on at a certain time everyday, spoiled much!? We made it to another Friday and we are hoping you are all having a good one, hopefully ours will get better! Please give our love to all in your happy home, and don't forget to love each other, see ya all tomorrow...

TGIF love from Jenny, daddy, & our Dallas family

PS~It is no secret that dad has Congestive Heart Failure and it keeps him from doing many of the things used to do, now he just tries real hard to keep up with our friends's notes, we are not willing to lose it all just yet, life is so good for us....

  Hey Cori 19,688
WOW, we did out Taxes 2 weeks ago, and when the old guy checked the bank web site, the cash was there. Now that's what I call fast. Get them done early, and get it back fast. Can' be any better than that.

Come visit me, JeTTa.

  Hi Cori
Oh wow, cats are sure a lot of work. At least your mom isn't allergic to them, mine is! My skinsis has a Norwegian Forest cat ... lots of long hair!!!
We had another sunny day of 83. But tonight, the rain came ... at least everything got watered. It will be getting cooler again down to the 60's. Hope we get another warm up soon.
Hugs

  Hello Cori~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was busy around here but that was just because of puppy duty. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today. She just couldn't seem to sit still. Mom was chasing after her most of the day! She still is! McKenzie just doesn't want to leave Merlin alone. Mom doesn't want to keep Merlin locked up all day and McKenzie really needs to learn to leave him alone.
I decided she was looking pretty hungry so I started throwing seeds, nuts and pellets down for her! Mom didn't think it was a very good idea. She swept it up and by the time she dumped it, I had thrown more down. Mom swept it up again and then dumped the rest. I got some veggie instead. That was my plan all along!hahahahaha
Obviously, we didn't get much else done. Mom was working on cleaning the oven. Since we don't use any chemicals around here it takes a bit longer to do. She should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Cori
Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote

  Hi Cori,
Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

Aloha a Hui ho! Till. Tomorrow! :)

  HELLO FROM LITTLE MISS LUCY
Hi Cori,
Mommy was very busy this morning making soup. Every year in Feb. her Curves facility has a soup contest. She didn't participate the past two years because of Daddy's being sick, but since he's better this year, she entered again. She made this wonderful Broccoli Cheddar soup. It's thick and delicious...and fattening! Not exactly the thing to take to a work-out facility, I told her. But does she listen to me? It would have been so much better if she had left it at home so we could have had some. We all LOVE anything with cheese in it!!
Lots of Love and Big Hugs, Little Miss Lucy♥

Come visit me, Finnegan - Will you be my Valentine?, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - Will you be my Valentine?.

  Hi Cori
Ahhh, we had another sunny day of 86 and the pool was 84! Enjoyed lunch on the lanai with my parronts.
Today they saw a young gator in a water filled ditch next to the road. And, George Gator was out getting a tan next to his pond ... a good day for all.
Hugs
