found her in the yard with a broken leg and wing when she was a little baby and her leg never healed properly even though the vet did everything he could.. she can fly but almost never does. lately our bad male budgie Paddy Cake has been trying to make friends with her and had been chasing her all over the bedroom. although i am very leery of them being too close it has also made a big difference in Boo Boo. she is getting more exercise and seems to actually looking forward to Paddy Cake running after her. he is relentless but when he finally does stop Boo Boo will hop over and sit under his cage waiting for him to start chasing her again. Paddy Cake has now enticed his mate Piddy Girl to do the same thing. Piddy Girl has no interest in Boo Boo but just follows Paddy. Boo Boo, i think finally has her own flock now.

  Hi, Boo Boo
Sounds like Piddy and Paddy are having a blast over at the KB. We'll fly over in a bit to join in the activities.

Still on the warm side here although slighter cooler than it had been. Rain in the forecast for next week.

Parronts got their taxes done. Should be receiving a refund in a couple of weeks. So glad can efile now. So much easier and faster too.

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

  Heya, Boo Boo!
Mom loves Cornell Lab--and the bird cams that they have. We have supported it for a few years now. They do good stuff!

Mom went to see her friend Kim today, and to help her hubby with some computer stuff. I was not happy, either, but she came home with some home made pizza--and oh how wonderful! Kim's hubby is an incredible cook, and his homemade pizza can't be bought in any store, or from any pizza place. After she got home, I velcroed myself to her. And it is getting cold out here--feels like -10 right now. Tomorrow is supposed to be a bad wind chill day, so Mom and I plan on staying in and doing stuff around the apt. She will clean and I will mess it up. Sounds good, doesn't it?

Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi BooBoo,
Today I'm gonna talk about Valentines Day.

Valentines Day is a special day for love and friendship. It is celebrated on February 14th.

Many years ago people believed there lived a kind man named Saint Valentine. Valentine's Day is named after him. He was the patron of lovers and was friends with many children. Children would give him letters and flowers to show their love. Perhaps that's how the custom of giving valentine cards began. People also thought that on the same date birds chose their mates. Some young people wanted to choose their sweethearts by picking a name from a jar.

Today different kinds of valentine cards are given. There are sweet and loving valentines. . . . And silly ones too.

People have always believed that love comes from the heart. A sweetheart is also called a valentine too. Some admirers give their valentines flowers on Valentine's Day..... And others give boxes of candy in the shape of a heart. There are cakes and candies in the shape of a heart, too. Some even have printed messages on them.

Valentine's Day has been so commercialized to the point where everything you see in the store is full of heart candies to stuffed animals with hearts and messages and even balloons too.

A mere happy Valentine's Day would suffice for most people and birdie friends.

So with that in mind, an early Happy Valentine's Day to you all, my sweetheart friends! :)

I love you always and forever.

I thank you for all the votes and support for my BOTM campaign run.

Here's an early Valentine vote for you.

With love from Hawaii.

  Hi BooBoo
Skin sis called Mom tonight around dinnertime after Mom got home from her errand runs with Nana.She sounds so much better than she did last night and that made Mom feel better.Mom feels bad that she couldn't be there with her but its hard to leave and be two and a half hours away and leave Nana here all by herself with no one to watch out for her,skin bro is working a distance away and Mom doesn't want anything to do with asking her sister to help out.Nana wouldn't want her sister to be there either with her!You are so right about there isn't much Mom can do for her right now.Mom is only hoping that she makes up her mind and lets Mom know if she'll be coming home to stay with Mom or going back to her apartment.Mom is hoping that she won't be in so much pain like she was the last time.
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 Little Blue Girl!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

I hope you are having a fun day too! Jennifer did her Valentine's this morning and went to work early. They are having a Valentine's party at the daycare for the little kids. They do it every year. They have party bags for the school kids but since they all have parties at school Jennifer and her co-workers throw the little kids a party like they would have at school! Very cool idea!

If mom can find Mrs. Dash in the grocery store, that will add some flavor to whatever she cooks. There are lots of varieties, some for meats, some for veggies, and that should help dad to enjoy his meal more. I bet it's tough on both of them! Hope you are having a great day though. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Boo Boo
We've heard of the Great Backyard Bird Count. Such an awesome way for scientists to learn about birds as they'd never be able to get such a wealth of info otherwise. Wonder what they think about the various areas that have the flocks of wild parronts (not native) that have been able to adapt and thrive? More than a couple of flocks in our general area.

  Heya, Boo Boo!
Sending good thoughts and prayers that your Dad is getting better, and your Mom for taking care of him. Human males can be pretty sad when it comes to being sick. Let's hope he is doing much better, and your Mom can have some time for herself and you and Cori and the Bad Budgies!

Today was a balmy 18 degrees here, with plenty of sun. Mom said that the wind was not a factor today, so it was just nippy enough to make sure you had your ear muffs and mittens on, along with the lighter weight winter coat. She took off this morning for Meijer, and wasn't gone too long. Brought me back some lovely snow peas and carrots, grapes and raspberries, too. And multi-colored tomatoes. Love having good fresh food! Oh, Mom found the towels she wanted, but they were only available to ship. Since adding a contour rug and a smaller one did not add on any shipping fees, she is having them shipped here. Guess we are going pale blue and ocean blue for the towels and rugs, respectively.

Temps are supposed to go down from our high today, and Saturday will be the coldest day of the week. Snow on Sunday, too, but that is not 100% certain of when or how much. Hopefully they will know by Sunday, ya think?

Nothing else happening, so sending big wing hugs your way!

  Hi Cori,
Here are some words of love:

Aloha is literally the combination of two words. Alo means to be face to face or in the presence of. Ha means the breath of life. So, aloha means to be face to face, or exchanging, the breath of life. This is a kind of blessing that is used to say hello, good bye, I love you, and generally to describe people living with respect and love for each other ("live aloha" or the "aloha spirit").

A great way to say I love you in Hawaiian, without using words, is the honi. Two people gently press their foreheads and noses together (with eyes and mouth closed). Calmly breath through the nostrils for a few breaths, exchanging ha. This is the greeting of both Hawaiians and Maori. And it is also the way that I say good night to my children.
Sweetheart - Ku’uipo (koo-ooh ee-poh)

honi – kiss

ho’opono – faithful

hoku – star

kahakai – beach

kala – money

na’au – pretty

nani – beautiful, enjoyable nohea –

handsome, loveliness punahele - favorite

I thank you all for your love, votes and support during my campaign for BOTM.

  Hi Boo boo
It's Alex.
Mom and dad went to an early free movie yesterday so we were not on the BC. They saw "The Finest Hours". Excellent movie about a Coast Guard rescue at sea that turned out to be the greatest small Coast Guard Boat rescue ever! A true story that took place in the 1950's. Then they went shopping for groceries and much to dad displeasure, they went to mom's favorite jewelry store. After the jewelry store they went to DAD'S favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner.
Today will be clear and warm, with a high of 88 and a low of 56. It's also Magnolia Bird Farm day. We all need more food and supplies. Also, dad needs to get more corn cob bedding for the bottoms of some of our cages. He gets it as a feed and grain store but they only accept cash so dad has to figure out how much to pull out of the bank.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi BooBoo,
Here's part 1

The meaning of the name “Laka” is: “Gentle, Tame”.

Aolani Name meaning & Origin is: “Beautiful Heavenly Cloud”

Hawaiian Goddesses
by Serge Kahili King

The Hawaiian concept of gods and goddesses is very different from that of Western and Near Eastern traditions, from African and Australian traditions, and from North and South American traditions. Although still different, it bears a closer resemblance to the more eclectic traditions of India, China, and Japan than with any others.

The word for god or goddess in Hawaiian is akua, whose meaning is very indeterminate. It was applied to the spirit, i.e., the invisible motive or creative essence, of anything and everything. Therefore, the Creator, the wind, the first aspect of the full moon, a high-ranking chief, a slave, a ghost, and that which causes a motor to work might all be called akua in certain contexts. For the most part, though, the word was commonly applied to forces, persons, and things which had a lot of mana, i.e., power or influence. What this means is that, when we hear or read stories of an entity such as Pele, the volcano goddess, we can never be certain whether the story is about the spirit of a natural phenomenon, the human ancestor of a particular family line, or both, or neither.

Another important feature of Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that they are often completely unrelated. To people familiar with the Greek Olympians as a family opposing the Titans as a family, or the Norse Aesir against the Vanir, relations between Hawaiian gods and goddesses seem incomprehensible. As Martha Beckwith says in Hawaiian Mythology, "It seems to me therefore probable that different immigrant families brought with them the gods and ritual familiar to them." Unlike the Hindu system, which at least tries to form the gods and goddesses of many different peoples, times, and places into an integrated whole, the Hawaiians seldom bothered to do so, allowing vastly different traditions to exist side by side in happy chaos. And in the few instances where some integration was attempted, it was always very limited in scope.

  Part 2
Part 2
One more feature to be mentioned about Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that the more power they were assumed to have, the more different forms they were thought to take at will. The most powerful could take forms that were either human, animal, vegetable, mineral, or other. The god Kamapua'a, for example, could turn into a human, a pig, a fish, a type of grass, or even the rain. In Hawaiian these forms are called kino lau (many bodies).

In this article we are putting our focus on Hawaiian goddesses, and since there are so many of them, we will only look at seven of the most important ones. Even then, only a small amount of information will be given for each one. In addition to information available from various written sources, such as Beckwith's Hawaiian Mythology, I will add information given me by members of the Kahili family who taught me their traditions pe At various times, then, I have taught about the goddesses in different ways, and that has led to some confusion on the part of students. So, for healing purposes only at a beginner level for understanding and using the concept of Hawaiian goddesses, here is the Ola 'Ana Papakahi o Na Akua Wahine Hawai'i, "The First Level Organization of Hawaiian Goddesses" in order of attributions and associations of name, principle, color, element, and primary function.

Hina: 'Ike, White, Water, Awareness (Knowledge)

Haumea: Kala, Red, Stone, Freedom (Release)

Pele: Makia, Orange, Fire, Focus (Energy)

Hi'iaka: Manawa, Yellow, Wind, Presence (Purpose)

Laka: Aloha, Green, Plants, Love (Compassion)

Kapo: Mana, Blue, Animals, Power (Ability)

Uli: Pono, Purple, People, Success (Effectiveness)

That’s all for today folks, sorry I couldn’t find a spooky story to tell you, but I’m still looking.

Thank you for all the love and support for my birdie of the month campaign.

  Heya, Boo Boo!
Gotta say I am glad the aviary and avatars are back--they went missing for over an hour tonight! Makes it hard to blog not having them around, if you know what I mean!

  Hi BooBoo,
Well this morning was cold by my standards and in the high 50's to 60's and mom had all the windows closed. Gee, I think Mother Nature has run a muck or something!

Here is our Hawaiian lesson for today, I will look for a spooky story tomorrow.

Today is Tuesday the ninth of February.
Tuesday = Po ‘alua (po aloo ah)
February = Pepeluali (pep ay loo ali)
Ninth = ‘eiwa (ay va)
Yes = ‘ae (eye)
No = ‘a ‘ole (ah-oh-lay)
Smart = akamai (ah-ka-my)
House = hale (ha-lay)
To repeat = hana hou (ha-na- ho)
To go = hele (hey lay)
To come = hele mai (hey-lay my)
To go cruising = holoholo (ho-low-ho-low)
The sea = Kai (ky) the ocean Makai (ma-kai)
Prohibited, taboo, forbidden = Kapu (ka-pooh) to keep out
Child, offspring Keiki (kay-kee)
Teacher Kumu (koo-moo) Hula Teacher Kumu Hula (koo-moo hoo la)
Sky, the heavens, heavenly Lani (la-nee)

Thank you all for your continued votes and support.

Sending you all big ole Hawaiian hugs!

Love,

Laka Aolani, candidate for BOTM

  Flitzer Tuesday
We've been fortunate to have very warm weather for Buffalo, but the temps are plummeting and we will have snow and single-digit temperatures by the weekend.
~sigh~
It is Buffalo after all.

Uncle Geno got a goldfish. Now, what good is a fish - it can't fly. It can't sit on your shoulder and nip your ear. It can't even say 'Love You'. No cuddle-time...Silly Geno - don't know what good a fish could be.

Come visit me, Mario Adler & Flitzer.
