New Private Bird Club Website Sign Up & Info
Hi Every birdie! Squeaky's mom is working with two web designers to build a new and improved but similar bird club for us to play on since our beloved BC will be deleting our Bird eClub sometime this year! We need your support! So start nagging your parronts so we can stay together!
Basically, the more parronts that sign up, the cheaper the initial set up fee will be and also the annual fee to join the site. For more information and to sign up to participate please visit my page 28415 and leave an email address. Or you can email my mom, Sunny, directly at our email nubinskis@aol. com. She will send you all the up to date information that has been sent so far and she can answer all your questions. She also told me to tell you that all ideas and suggestions are most welcome. She also is hoping to find some parronts that have some expertise in working with advertisers and who would volunteer to get advertisers for the site. If that happens, costs would be next to nothing or maybe even nothing for all of us to play together.
So send your parronts to my page 28415 or email us to get information, leave suggestions and to sign up!
Hugs and Love to all! Squeaky, Picabo & Scion

  Hi Cori
Hope all is well at your place.
We enjoyed 38 degrees and lots of melting snow today. It was nice to have rain and fog for a change. Maybe it will get as high as 41 with rain on Sunday! I think I can take one blanket off the perch tonight!

  Hey Cori,
I can smell the pineapple cake in the oven baking says Lookie. Hmmmm

But mom says I have a special treat for everyone!

Mom made her killer lasagne with sautéed mushrooms and 3 cheese and hamburger all mixed in layers.

This will satisfy even the pickiest birdie. :)

Okay so everyone go wash up for dinner and see you at the dining table.

When they all get back there's a big pan of lasagne and garlic bread sticks and juice and water already on the table. A table set for a dozen birdies with plates and forks and knives and napkins.

Mom says a pretty prayer before everyone digs in.

Lord we thank you that we are all together and thank you for all the friendships that we have made along the way. May this meal nourish our bodies and keep us well.

Lord we also pray for our friends in the northern states with all that snow and coldness.

Please keep all of our friends safe from harm and keep them warm too.

In Jesus name we pray, Anen. Amen says every birdie.

Okay dig in! Momma Ruthie cuts the lasagne and puts it in every birdies plates along with garlic bread sticks and some tossed veggies.

Don't worry everyone the pineapple cake should be done by the time we finish dinner and ready for dessert.

Mom pours the juice in cups and has everyone pass it down till everyone has some juice.

Everyone is so quiet that all you could hear was hmmm chomp chomp of the food and no chatter. Mom figures that will come after.

After everyone is done with dinner she gets put the pineapple cake still warm from the oven.

Okay who wants a piece of pineapple cake??

Everyone yells I do !!!

After desert every birdie is so full and has gotten the birdie food paralysis and their eyes are starting to close and fall asleep. So mom puts out the big sleeping bag in front of the tv so everyone can watch and will eventually fall asleep.

They all had a hard day of volleyball games so let's let them sleep.

She covers everyone with a warm cool blankie as its in the high 70's with a little breeze coming in the window. So now every birdie is tucked in and she kisses everyone on the forehead goodnight sweetie! :)

Tomorrow is another game so get all the rest you can.

Love,

Momma Ruthie and Papa Peter

You smell so fresh and clean and you are SO SOFT! You are truly irresistible! Angel snuggles up to Cori and preens her to enjoy her fragrant feathers... All four of us finally got our claws trimmed yesterday when skinsis stopped by after work (early release day at school, yay!). Skinsis looked good for her first week back teaching. Charlie likes the daycare too, so G-ma was happy to hear that things are going well. Blessings all around!

Love,

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! It's still grey, wet and windy at my house! We have the fireplace on and it's very cozy inside! Mom tells me that if it were sunshine and warm all the time we wouldn't be able to use the fireplace!!
They had the first big snow up on the mountain today and it was a mess!! Snoqualmie pass is the main road between west and east out here and a lot of people use it. There were cars spinning all over the place! Some people didn't check the pass conditions before they went so they didn't have chains with them. Everyone who uses that road knows that you always check the pass conditions no matter what time of the year it is!
Mom is going to get the pantry straightened out today since it looks like something exploded in there!hehehehehe We have too much stuff and need to get some meals cooked. Mom only works 2 nights and then she'll be off 2 nights so we will have our Thanksgiving then. She got a ham and a turkey since they were great deals! Most stores don't do the cheap turkeys anymore but mom found one where she got the turkey for 48 cents a pound! I'm just looking forward to the corn bread! Maybe some pumpkin pie too!
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a hug for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  `Ü´ Greetings & OH! MY!! GOODness!!!
Miss CORI and Miss BOO BOO!

Does anybirdy ELSE realize how much there is to KNOW about FootBall??? Why … I had no idea how much I DIDN’T KNOW until Momma consented to help me learn for the sake of my Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown, and sharing her passion for The Game so that I might understand all of the HoopLa that I hear coming from the area of the television every time she watches a Game!!

HEAVENS to BETSY … and BACK!!!

Well! As promised, we shall begin our investigation into the individual responsibilities of the Players in each Position today. But I fear it will never fit into one day’s note. So we shall simply spread it out over several days so that you, My Featheriends, can take it all in and not fall asleep before you learn what you need to know!

You may recall from our earlier information that the NFL limits active, uniformed Players to 45 per Team on Game Day.

Each FootBall Team has 11 Players per side: 11 on Offense and 11 on Defense. Teams are allowed to play with fewer than 11 Players (and for the LIFE of me I can’t IMAGINE WHY they would WANT to???), but they are penalized for having more than 11 Players on the Field during play. Rarely, a few eggsceptionally talented Players may play both Offense and Defense in the NFL. (And I do believe that we have a few of those eggsceptionally talented Birdie FootBall Players on the Indians and Pilgrims Team Rosters!)

A typical NFL Game Day roster includes three QuarterBacks, a Punter, a PlaceKicker, a Kick Return Specialist, eight Offensive LineMen, four Running Backs, five Receivers, two Tight Ends, seven Defensive LineMen, seven LineBackers, and six Defensive Backs. (The NONSTARTING Players – that is, those who are not among the 22 or so Players who are listed in the Starting LineUp – are considered Reserves, and many of them are Specialists.)

In the NFL, an additional Player can be in uniform, but he must be a QuarterBack and enter the Game only after the other QuarterBacks have been removed from the Game because of injury. When this eggstra QuarterBack, or 46th Player, enters the Game, the other QuarterBacks are deemed ineligible and cannot return to that Game even if they are healthy.

With our very own 3rd Annual Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game approaching in a little over a week, and Players needing and wanting to know how to practice to yield the most effective results, when we next meet I shall delve into the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

Before I depart this evening, though, I do wish to thank you, once again, for your wonderful continuing support of my efforts to be your Christmas Queen on BirdChannel. I am truly beginning to feel the eggscitement of the prospect of having my dream realized. You and your featheriendship are appreciated more than you know.

A bientot, mes amies,
[See you soon, My Featheriends]

Herself stuck in the sand. She yells help me!! I'm stuck and I can't get out !!

Then everyone helps to dig her out.

  Hi Cori
I need a bath too. My mom is also afraid because of the cold. I don't like the hair dryer at all. But, I let mom wrap me up in my fluffy bath towel and hold me under a quilt until I'm dry.
That is so funny about the talking parrot. Bailey had one.
The weather people say we have a total of 35 inches of snow. Today I was getting scritches from mom ... when the sun came out. Then it was gone (in two minutes) and back to darkness, snow and howling winds. This was NOT right! One more day of this snow stuff for now :(
Have a good night, I'm going back to my down comforter!

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Oh I sure do love getting blow dried too after a bath but even if mom is blow drying her hair I beg to have it turned on me too.
Mom said I was a bit of a thief today. First dad had some lunch with shrimp and noodles that was left over from supper yesterday. Of course I didn’t get any of those when the parronts had them for supper so I swooped on to dad when he was having the left overs and helped my self to a very tasty noodle. Then this evening mom had some crackers she was munching on and I put my head in the box and got my own…just a piece cause mom caught me right away. It was a veggie cracker so thought that was good for me but mom says not. I get plenty of food here but its all the healthy stuff and you know sometimes a fid needs some junk food. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you.

  `Ü´ Greetings & Good Evening
Miss CORI and Miss BOO BOO!

I am flitting by this evening for a very short visit to share with you a little bit of the great fun I had this Tuesday past presenting a program with Momma for The Sylvan Seniors at Mt Sylvan United Methodist Church in Durham, where Momma and Daddy attend. (They do not attend the s-e-n-i-o-r-s functions. **TeeHee** They attend CHURCH there.)

Momma and I were given half an hour to address the group, to share what Life with a Parrot is like, for most of them had never had an eggsperience with a companion parrot; particularly not one of my size! When we have a program like that, Momma usually starts out by eggsplaining how she and Daddy came to start a flock like the K Kritter Korral, and how it grew; and then, through sheer human curiosity, we have a wonderful conversation about what all is entailed in living with a parrot (or parrotS). Of course, I-I-I contribute greatly to program content; this time including a stroll back and forth in front of the front row at one point, for emphasis of the subject matter at hand. (At just the right point in time I climbed down off my play stand and let Momma know I had something to add. **GRiN**)

When our time for the presentation was over, the group had some lunch together. I was given my fill of some lovely white grapes by a number of brave ladies and gentlemen, and then several of them wanted to have their picture taken with me. In my Gallery at the bottom of my page you can see just a couple of the lovely folks I visited with parrotsonally.

I shall return with those promised eggsplanations of the positions of the players on a FootBall team when next I visit.

Toutes alors, mes amies,
[Until then, My Featheriends]

  Hi Cori
Well, Mom had her endoscopy yesterday, and since it was a just a follow-up to the surgery she had in August to make sure all was well in her tummy she wasn't worried. They had a small issue with the fact that when I bit my mom over the Ensure instead of lunch, it was right where they would normally put the IV. So it went into her forearm, but the nurse was very good and it really didn't hurt much at all. Not only did the procedure go well, but her ulcer is finally gone too! So no more acid reflux, and nor more ulcer. She's a happy camper....except she's still not allowed to take Excedrin. Boohoo!

After she got home from the hospital yesterday, she took a short nap to sleep off the drugs and then the rest of the day was mine! And although she didn't feel much like eating, we did share a protein/oatmeal cookie. Yum! Her dinner was just that stupid Ensure again, so I never even saw the bottle.

Now today is cloudy and cool here, so I will not be getting outside at all. Mom is wearing sweats and a fleece and her warm bedroom slippers. And my heater is staying on all day. At least I have plenty of Mom time, so I can't really complain.

  Hi Cori
Mom waited and waited for the guy to fix the furnace last night. He finally came around 6:15. Of course, when he got here, the furnace kicked on! He looked and decided there was nothing wrong, except that when mom changed the batteries she forgot to put the override hold button on. He pushed the button, charged mom, and left. This morning when mom got up, it was 59 degrees in here again. She called them back before going to work. She told the girl who assigns people what happened, and that she was going to work and wouldn't be home until 1 or so. The girl promised we'd get an earlier visit today. Mom jiggled the thermostat this morning and had it working for awhile, but when she got home from work, it was only 60 in here again! The guy got here by 1:30 and he just left a few minutes ago.
When he went down and took the door off the furnace, it kicked on! He checked all the switches, the intake and outgo vents, and everything else he could think of. He thinks there might have been dust or something causing the pressure switches to shut off. He air sprayed to clean, and told mom if it happens again, he has the info he needs to get replacement switches. Right now it's warming up, hopefully it will stay that way.
Meanwhile, mom did her tour in animals this morning with second grade, and enjoyed it. She went to visit her nephew who had a second surgery following his auto accident (Last February), and he's doing great!
I hope you are toasty warm, and getting lots of love today. Hugs, Falco

my Mom really hasn't given us a shower since the last time we were all outside on the deck sometime in early October before it got really cold outside!We have been getting sprayed here and there but not a good dousing with the water and I have been trying to take a bath with my water bottle and whenever Mom sees me doing that she takes me out to the kitchen and turns the faucet on with the sprayer for me to go under but I always manage to take off on her so the last time I did that she came after me and brought me back to the kitchen sink and sprayed me til I was so soaking wet!Then I was allowed to go back into the bird room to finish drying off in my triangle rocker swing in the window in the sun shine!Then Mom took off after my frothers and fister and got them all soaked!We all used to go in the shower with her(we have a shower perch in each bathroom) but since Dixie's feet got so bad he couldn't hold onto the perch Mom hasn't taken us in with her,she promises the rest of us that as soon as she has time to take a long relaxing shower we'll be going back in with her again!

This morning was a freezing cold morning with temperatures of 27 degrees with lots of sun shine,but it did nothing to warm things up at all.Mom got Dixie and Mario packed warmly in their carriers and wrapped a warm blanket around them both while waiting for skin sis to come and pick them up.She was a bit late because of the construction by her apartment but they got in the car and went directly to Nana's to drop Dixie and Mario off and then they raced back to the gym to get to Zumba class and just made it right when the class was starting!As soon as they got out from the gym they went back to Nana's to pick her up to go to Market Basket to get some grocery shopping done for Thanksgiving and Nana got some pies there and both Mom and Nana got some marked down cream pies from the bakery section there,Nana got a nice cake and they got gravy and cranberry sauce a head of lettuce,cucumber and Mom got some tomatoes and Mom got 5 gallons of milk as she was down to her last gallon and they got several other things.Then they went back to our house to drop off all the things Mom got and then from there to Nana's to drop off her things and then they went and grabbed a bite to eat at Asia a Chinese restaurant and then from there they went to Roche Brothers grocery store where Mom bought a turkey breast for Thanksgiving dinner. Nana wants to go to Trader Joe's next week to get some sweet potatoes and they still have to get the Turkey broth for Nana to make the turkey soup to go with the meal. It was so cold in the grocery stores today and Mom just can't seem to warm up! Mom never got home til 6:30pm.She had to get dad's dinner and get the rest of us all cleaned and fed and put all the groceries away and now here it is after 9:00pm and Mom is just starting to get our visits in!

That's greyt the birdies are using the heated bird bath. You are lucky not to get the snow. Buffalo got hit really bad. We didn't do as badly as predicted. But, still more coming. This isn't a surprise this time of year at all for us. Mom will have to get out there tomorrow and fill the feeders.
Today was a light snow day for us, dad only plowed once. Thursday, we will get another foot of snow with ice, then maybe a break for a while. They say the rain will be here on the weekend.
Hope every bird is staying warm. Chyna lifts her hot chocolate mug ... CHEERS.

Oh that snow will show up sooner or later LOL.
Yesterday I had a few naps during the day. Mom had pulled my condo out and was sweeping and cleaning behind it. At night time I was not ready for bed at all and mom left me go and a few times I went in my condo but came back out. Finally mom checked my heater and here she had unplugged it when she was cleaning behind it and didn’t plug it back in. Once she did that I did go up on my perch and to bed. It was cold last night again so that heater sure felt good too. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you.

  Hi Cori
If it does pass, the Lakota nation will sue because it will pass through their land without their permission. Mom thinks the president will veto it anyway. It's nothing but trouble!
We are sitting here waiting for the furnace guys to show up. Yesterday when mom was doing our blogs, she started feeling cold. When she went downstairs, she saw that it was only 57 in the house. She called the furnace guys, then she changed the batteries in the thermostat. The furnace kicked on, so she called them back and cancelled the appointment. BIG MISTAKE! She woke up around 5 this morning feeling chilly, waited to hear the furnace kick on, and when it didn't, she went downstairs and saw it was only 52 in here! She fiddled with the batteries again, and called the furnace guys to set up another appointment today.
She had to work at the museum today, so she ended up asking the cleaning woman to stay and wait in case they came before she got back. Well, she got back at 1 and they still hadn't shown up yet, but Debbie, the cleaning woman, said she had taken down the thermostat 4 times and pushed the batteries around to get the furnace to start again. So now we are waiting.
Mom's tours this morning were a real challenge. She had 2 special needs groups of children. The first group had all nonverbal kids, and all of them were holding hands with one of the chaperones. Some of them couldn't walk very well, either, so they went slowly and took elevators to all the floors. The second group was much larger, bigger group and bigger kids. Many of them were nonverbal as well, and most of them were on a cognitive level somewhere below kindergarten. Mom got through the two tours well, but they were exhausting. All she said to her boss was Thank God and God bless the people who work with these children full time! Mom dealt with some special needs kids when she taught, but not so many at a time. These people need our thanks, for sure! They probably need a lot more money than they are making as well, but they do it for the same reason all teachers do, for the love of the children.
I hope it's warmer there than here, it hasn't gotten too warm today, but tomorrow and Friday it should rise into the high 30s and maybe into the 40s. We do have sun today, so it doesn't feel as cold somehow!
Mom has homework all week before Daisy even goes to class next week! We'll talk more about it later. I hope you are getting lots of attention today, and savoring every hug. Hugs, Falco

  And the volleyball game starts with the coin toss and Pookiw calls heads and Laka says its tails for us I guess.

Heads win. So Pookie serves the ball and it goes over to Cori who bumps it up to Laka who sets it up for Chyna who spikes it over and lands in the dead spot while all the boy birdies scramble to hit the ball. They all missed!

Chyna says in your face boys!! Laka high fours Chyna and the rest if the girls too.

Good going Chyna!!

Now BooBoo serves and it's over and landing in front of Dixie, but he can't see as the sun is in his eye so the ball lands on the ground.

Yay!!! The girls team yells.

Pookie says Dixie!! What's the matter?? He says I couldn't see, the sun was in my eyes!!

Pookie calls time out!! He runs to the tent and cones back with visors for all the boys.

Laka looks at that and she calls time out!!!

She runs to the tent and gets visors for all the girls.

Thanks Laka! Your welcome, two can play at that game she tells Pookie.

BooBoo serves again and it goes to Gus who bumps it up to Raffi who sets it up for Kiddo.

He spikes it over and hits a dead zone, the girls aren't able to get it.

Kiddo serves and it goes over to Kacey who bumps it over to Little Angel who sets it up for Cori who spikes it over to Pookie who is unable to get it in time.

Yay yell the girls!!! We showed them boys, right Chyna? Ooh yeah!

Hugs and a vote,

Laka

  Hi Cori
Rip-Off
The cost of what you pay for a cup of fancy coffee at home is going up -- not down -- thanks to a tricky move by the dominant home coffee brewing company.

How your 2.0 Keurig is ripping you off

It recently came to my attention that the Keurig people are making a 2.0 version of their machine with DRM (digital rights management).

I know this sounds crazy, but Keurig is using the Digital Millennium Copyright Act -- a controversial law designed to protect the entertainment industry -- to force you to only use proprietary K coffee pods in their new machine!

My executive producer Christa likes to make individual off-brand K cups at home using her Keurig machine. That drives her cost down to around 6 cents a cup.

How much is your coffee habit costing you?

But as more and more people do what Christa does, Keurig has watched their profits go down. That’s because their business model is based on them making money from all the different coffee manufacturers who pay them royalties to have their coffee in K cups.

So Keurig came out with the 2.0 machine that has a computer chip in it to sense anytime somebody is trying to save money making coffee...and it will not let them make their coffee!

Even if you buy an off-brand refillable coffee pod, if it doesn't have the Keurig logo on it, it can sense that too.

You're better served right now with the older 1.0 versions of the Keurig machines to avoid this DRM ploy. They're available for $50 to $75. Buy one of the older ones if you are price sensitive.

Come visit me, JeTTa.

  HEY CORI
OH WOW HOW COOL TO SEE A RED FLICKER OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW. HOPE THERE WAS FOOD AVAILABLE FOR HIM TO EAT.

TELL YOUR MOM TO FORGET THE LEAVES. THEY WILL DECOMPOSE DURING THE WINTER AND BE FERTILIZER FOR TEH GRASS IN THE SPRING.

COLD WEATHER IS NO TIME TO BE OUT IN IT WORKING.

SO STAY INSIDE AND STAY WARM DRINKING HOT CHOCOLATE.

  Hi Cori
I wouldn't worry about the leaves any more. That's so nice you have heated water for the birds and other critters. We have to put on snowshoes to get to the bird feeders. The other animals find their way thru the snow to that area for their food dishes.
We made it thru the worst and didn't lose power. Looks like two more days of heavy snow. It was so windy last night that it howled all night long. Today was full of whiteouts and strong winds again. The roads are very icy. I watched my dad plow snow most of the day. Then he was using the roof rake, I didn't like that part when the snow came down and made a big thud! Boy, is it ever COLD up here! I have my footie pj's on and a big fluffy robe. Mom & I have been hitting the hot chocolate. Come over if you want to go sledding or use the snow shoes.
Hugs

I'm not sure what a red flicker is...a birdie, maybe? It is bitter cold here today, but mom went out to get cards and was okay. The hardest part was getting out the door. She has offered skinsis help after her school day, but so far, hasn't been needed. That's good, I guess. skinsis is getting settled back in with her kids & classes. I guess the G-parronts will have to get over Friday night or the weekend. It feels weird, having seen Charlie 3-5 times a week, but I guess mom will adapt...she has to. Things are going well & mom is thankful.

Angel puts his wings around Cori to keep her warm and can't resist giving her a long, beaky kiss...

Love,

Your Angelbird

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Oh yea today sure was cold to be out bagging leaves!! Mom always makes letters from Santa to the grands each year and has for 15 years. This year will be the first year she wont since the youngest is almost 11 now. The grands always enjoyed them and mom would have a list for each grand as to their friends, teachers and personal things like that. Each letter was different and applied to just that grand too. Mom always enclosed some little gift in each letter too. It was always so much fun to visit later and they would be so excited to show mom their Santa letter and what ever little gift was sent too. Lots of good memories and they are all growing up so fast now. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We woke up to a bright sunny day here this morning and the wind is blowing but we have temperatures of 43 degrees and the wind is blowing here making it feel colder than it is.The sun isn't doing anything to warm things up around here either!Last night we had heavy down pours and thunder and lightening!The temperature was 59 and not that cold.Skin bro came over early this morning after he got out of work and he spent several hours here playing with our baby fister Candida and checking in on Mario,now Mom is way behind on getting her chores done for the day!So far the only thing she's done is scrub down our cages and has cleaned out and is bleaching out the kitchen sink.She has to go out tomorrow and is trying to get as much work done as she possibly can as she won't be coming home til late again!
That sure is not a bad price to pay for getting your sweet Mom's tires rotated and the inspection sticker for $35.00!Our inspecion sticker alone is $35.00 it went up from $29.00.My dad is also waiting for the rest of the leaves to fall from the trees before he goes out there and starts raking the leaves!That birdbath with the electric heater in it really sounds so nice for the poor wild birds so they don't freeze while taking a bath,our bird bath had ice in it yesterday and my dad had to empty it all out and refill it with clean fresh water,the ice took out all the dirt and grime that was in the bird bath.You are so cold there and here I thought we were bad with the wind and all!This weather is so ridiculous,first we are near 60 degrees and then the next day we are freezing and then by the end of the week they say we will be going back up to the 50 degree mark!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Cori!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

  Hi Cori
Well, I am dictating my blogs, but I am not sure how long that will last since I also insist on feeding my mom's fingers while she is trying to type. I may be sent to my room shortly.

I did a get a sunbath today, but it was another short one. Just not quite warm enough, and I blame Mom. She insisted on showering and having lunch before we went outside, and since it was so warm when she got home from the gym at 1PM she figured we were golden. However when we got outside at 2PM the sun had gone behind the clouds and the temp must have dropped 5 degrees or more. We tried, but after 20 minutes Mom worried that it just wasn't warm enough and we came inside.

However that lunch we had first? It was the jambalaya from last night. As usual with that stuff, it is even better the second day and I made a pig of myself. So now Mom is calling me Tubbo, instead of Kiddo. Not nice!

Mom has her follow-up endoscopy tomorrow to make sure everything from the surgery in August is still working right. Mom hasn't had acid reflux even once since the surgery, so she is expecting a good outcome. However it does mean she won't be blogging for me tomorrow. When she comes home from one of those, she is high as a kite and goes right to bed. Good thing I will get lots of mom time before she leaves at 10 tomorrow morning.

  Hi Cori
Mom's yard guys were supposed to come yesterday and do the leaves, but with the rain, they didn't. Now the yard has snow all over it.
Mom had a docent meeting this morning, and they reviewed a new exhibit that opened on the 8th. It's a guy named Knight who did a lot of animal art, and illustrated his dinos and mosasaurs and such by actually looking at the skeletal structures and using science to help him, instead of fantasizing about what the animals looked like. We look at some today, though, and it's easy to see how dated they are. The new knowledge about dinos, for instance, shows them in completely different positions in life. Still, for his time, he was a terrific artist. Mom found out at the meeting that he was legally blind almost all his life, too, which makes the artwork all the more remarkable.
She is reading the Scientific American magazine that came out in August about dinosaurs right now, too, so she's pretty much immersed in the Mesozoic!
Tonight, though, mom will go to the Humane Society for her first class in adult dog obedience for Daisy. We all think it's time for Daisy to go to school, since mom has not been a good trainer at home, at least as far as her fixating on us is concerned.
It snowed overnight, and is about 20 degrees out right now, with the wind chill making it feel around 0, so mom is indoors for the rest of the day, at least until tonight. I hope you are having a better day, at least warmer. Get lots of cuddles, and maybe some warm cider if you are cold. Hugs, Falco
