  Hi Pepper
Bumble bees have a fuzzy body and are good pollinators and produce lots of honey. carpenter bees are not fuzzy but shiny and are very good at wood working especially on your house. group of aeronautical engineers decided to study the bumblebee. They measured its wingspan, computed body weight, examined its oversized fuselage and concluded that there was no rational reason why a bumblebee can take off or land safely. Of course, the bumblebee doesn't know this, so it goes ahead and flies anyway! there are
hundreds of true stories about folks who have done amazing things because they didn't know they weren't supposed to be able to do them. so live your life like a bee.

love Boo Boo the Bee

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you had a great day too! It got cloudy and cooler here today so I don't think anyone is missing the pool. They painted it today and then put the lights and the filter covers back on. It is now ready for water when it dries.
Mom has to drive Jennifer down to her dads house tomorrow. The doctors have been checking him ever since he has the heart attack and found he has a leaky heart valve. He is going to have to have surgery to fix it and Jennifer is worried. Mom thinks it will be okay since they do so many of those kinds of surgeries. They haven't scheduled it yet but we keep him in our prayers everyday.
Mom went over to Costco today and it was very crowded. They had all the registers open so it really didn't take long to get out of there. She brought back some lovely blueberry muffins and Mandy, Merlin and I shared one! Yes, the cat likes blueberry muffins!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug for each of you!

I hope you had a great day. Mine was pretty good. Mom was busy with chores and spent some time looking for recipes for veggies. She found some really great ones so it as time well spent.
The pool is still empty. The lights from the bottom are sitting along side it. They plastered it so I think now they have to smooth it out again and then paint it blue again. It was warm here today so I think everyone is anxious for that pool to be open!
I hope your evening is just perfect!

I hope you are having a nice day! It's overcast at the moment but they have promised Sun and upper 70's today. I'm waiting!
The pool is still empty. They plastered it yesterday so I guess it has to sit for a while before they put water in it.
You have to go through the office building to get to the pool and the office is closed on holidays! It will probably open the day after Memorial Day. It makes some people very unhappy but it's always been that way!
Enjoy the day!

  Hi Pepper
it was a beautiful day today and after mom finished trimming the forsythia off of the road so the township doesn't come and hack them away she was going to take us outside but as she was dragging all the cut branches she saw the neighbor with his pesticide canister strapped to his back spraying his rocks with the wind blowing it right on our property so that put an end to us getting outside.

BC is really a mess tonight. on top of not being able to read anybirdys blogs the pages aren't always loading and we are getting URL not found. everybirdy better let BC know before the memorial day weekend or it will get worse and there will be no one around to correct

I hope you are having a fun day!
The guys are still over there fixing the pool so I still don't know how they are going to fill it. I hope they do it soon because I really want to know! It's funny how we never really paid attention to it before. You can tell that no one here goes swimming! It wasn't a selling point when we rented our apartment. They allowed big dogs and had dog parks so they were a winner as far as we were concerned. The rules have changed since we moved in. They still allow big dogs but I guess they have to okay it first. Same with exotics, which is me! They said we are grandfathered in so it doesn't affect us!
I hope you have the most wonderful day ever!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Mom hasn't let me on my page in FOREVER! She has just been checking Polly's. Mom now has a bit more time, so MAYBE she'll let us get together. So sorry I missed last night! We haven't gotten to the KB yet. Mom's knee is bending but doesn't stay for sitting for more than 90 minutes at a time. She'll be icing it again shortly.
(She had arthroscopy done on the knee last Wed.)
Think we can bug my mom to get out the spa? Hot weather is coming!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very pretty here and suppose to get up into the 70's. Mom is hoping it gets warm enough to open the windows and get some fresh air in here!
There are men in the pool doing some kind of blasting. At first it was interesting but it looks like the blasting is done and they are just walking around in it at the moment. I never got to see them drain it but I sure would like to see them fill it up! That would be cool!
I am waddling right over to the calendar page to let every bird know you are in the booth and then I'll be over to the booth!! I really hope you have as much fun as I did!

  Hi Pepper
mom finally put my outdoor cage on the porch today. then instead of taking me outside she was working on the fountain again and trying to plant a few flowers. mom said i wouldn't have been happy anyway because the neighbor has been using a jackhammer all weekend and making quite a racket.

the bee populations has now decreased another 40 percent this year and Pennsylvania is one of the worst bee declining states at a 60 percent decline. the chemical companies are denying their toxic pesticides are killing bees and are now working on a pesticide to kill the mites that are infesting the bees. the chemical companies say loss of pollen producing flowers are causing the decline which the chemical companies make toxic weed killers to kill.

I hope you are having a great Sunday! Isn't it exciting that there may be a triple crown winner this year! Hasn't been one for a very long time!
My Governor declared a Drought Emergency for the entire state this weekend. I'm not having a drought but over on the other side of the mountain they are. Not enough snow this year to fill up the lakes and rivers over there!
They have already decided to use the water on the crops that would be too hard to replant, like pears and apple groves. They are even talking about catching the salmon, putting them in tank trucks and driving them to the spawning grounds! I'd love to see that! At least they are planning ahead. We are going to figure out how we can conserve around the house. Mom found out that using the dishwasher is more efficient than hand washing and that paper plate are not recyclable! Bummer!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

mom has been trying to work outside. last week mom almost stepped on 2 baby fawns who were sleeping in her rock garden. after mom found them she couldn't do anything else but watch them all day. she took pictures but hasn't posted them yet. finally around 9pm the mom came back and the fawns left with her. for about a week now we haven't seen them. today mom deer came back with her2 twin fawns. saw mom standing in her garden and did a little snort and a buck.both twins ran different directions. they are twice the size they were a week ago. mom deer went after one fawn and other fawn met them both on the side of the yard. they then ran through the hedge and into the neighbors yard across the street.

the bad budgie hill comes after me but now instead of trying to get away i hold my ground and go after him. he is very fast and always gets away and then comes immediately back for more. its exhausting. sometimes when he gets tired he will fly to his cage to rest and then i wait right under his cage for him come and get me again.

Hulk screams i see the truck coming up the royal driveway. the UPS driver sees all the birds standing in the courtyard and fearing he is in the Alfred Hitchcock movie "THE BIRDS" birds, slams on the brakes and takes the package of bees and flings it as hard as he can at the huge crowd of birds standing there before hightailing it out of there at a high speed. Queen Boo Boo yells "OH No" and Cookie leaps into the air like super bird and catches the box of bees midair and gently places them on the ground. everybody gathers around the box and Queen Boo Boo makes a tiny hole in the box so she can see the bees. the bees aren't happy and they don't know what is going on but they aren't angry either.Queen Boo Boo hunts for the Queen Honey Bee to place her in the hive first. Willie says let me see and spots the tiny Bee wearing a tiny crown so he knows its the Queen Bee. Raffiremoves the middle trays on the super and Queen Boo Boo ever so gently picks the small Queen Bee up and places her in the middle of the hive. Pearl and Silver who are dressed in appropriate bee gear gently spray the little girl honey bees with sugar water to relax them before Sam I Am gently shakes them into the middle of the hive with their queen. Pearl & Silver then very gently start placing the removed trays back into the hive being careful not to hurt or crush any of the bees. Kaji & Lizzie seal up all the entrances to the hive until the bees become adjusted to their new home.this will also keep predators out of the hive until the bees are strong enough to defend it. in the meantime Queen Boo Boo needs volunteers to come and spray the bees with the syrup until they are strong enough to go find flowers. this has been quite exciting and amazingly nobody was stung even though some of them had been a little worried. they all listen to the happy buzz of the honey bees and know they will fit in perfectly at the royal birdy castle. Queen Boo Boo says and the best part is we will now have fresh organic honey.tonight we celebrate the royal guards dressed as bees standing at attention while Lizzie unfolds a outdoor table loaded with all kinds of honey candy,honey cookies, honey cake, honey wax to chew, honey for your tea or booze whatever you prefer, plus honey based skin creams. there also is a table set with the finest royal china.whatever you

i am so happy you like the butterflies. they have the most amazing colors. some of them are born without mouths and can never eat. Queen Boo Boo takes Peppers wing and leeds him around the birdy castle garden and explains all about the honey bee queen and bees they will be getting soon. Queen Boo Boo Bought them on ebay. first we had to find good spots for the hives. we have built these boxes called supers for the bees. the opening must face the south east so the honey bees can get the early sunlight. the supers are protected from the harsh winds blowing from the north and northwest with plenty of shrubs like forsythia, ilex and juniper. we dont want the little honey bees to get too cold or too hot so we are placing the supers under shade trees so that they get dappled sunlight and not full or direct sunlight. first we built a base with cinder blocks and then surrounded that wit pretty brick so it looks nice. then the super is built with layers of board and planks in a box. we can add on to it as the hive gets bigger but for now its best to go with small. i am very excited about the bees arrival and hope you will be here at the castle when we release them. it will be so much fun. i have to check with UPS to find out the expected shipping date

I hope you are having a fantastic day! We are getting mom ready to head back to work tonight. She'll have to work 6 days this week but then she will have a 3 day weekend! YAY! They are going to go see Avengers II! I will have to wait for the DVD since I hear that movie theaters are not a good place for birds!
I have been busy this morning deleting birds from the hatchday list and the memorial list. I usually delete a bird who has not been on BC for a year since I figure after a year they probably aren't coming back. Today I had several request from flocks to delete their names. Some of their pages have been deleted also. They have other projects they are going to be working on and will not have the time for the BC right now. If you see a friend missing from the list, I did not mess up, it was just a request from the flock!
I hope your day is spectacular and that you get to do lots of fun things!!

Every day, animals are put into critical danger when their natural habitats are jeopardized by human activity. Together, we can protect the one earth we all rely on.

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me. ?
HAPPY EARTH DAY

  Hi Pepper
CONCLUSION ON SPIDERS
Cellar spiders which have super long legs like daddy long legs (which are not spiders) love to eat ants. if you have those tiny tiny little ants running around in your house cellar spiders will eat all of them.
3. Antarctica is the only continent in the world where you will absolutely not find a spider. There are creatures who live there like whales and penguins, but people and spiders stay away from the Antarctica lifestyle. because arthropods like to keep their butts warm, just like humans do.
4. Spiders possess shyness as a personality trait just like people .Spiders, even large ones like tarantulas, are docile in nature. Most spiders are inherently shy critters. They get squished more often than they actually bite humans. Spiders will defend themselves in rare cases, but these buggies mostly get scared and hide in the presence of danger.Because of their shyness they ALMOST NEVER seek out humans to bite. When spiders and humans come in contact, it is usually when they are looking for warmth or just happen to be seeking out food and we bump into each other.
5. Although we have all the eyes that we need, both spiders and humans rely on our other senses.You would think having eight eyes would be all the eyes that you need to see perfectly, but for most spiders that is not the case. Nearly all spiders have eight simple eyes, but having six more peepers than us, doesn’t make their vision any more superior since most arachnids have poor eyesight. On average, over six out of 10 people need to wear glasses or contact lenses, making our visual impairments almost identical to that of spiders. Instead, both spiders and people depend on our other senses, like sound, taste and touch, to help us survive. Nobody’s perfect; not people with two eyes nor arthropods with a whopping eight.

it is a pain to remove all those webs, mainly because they gather so much dust but consider letting spiders be or releasing them back outside the next time you see arachnid amigos in your home. plus i find them quite tasty

  Hi Pepper
the more spiders we have around the less chance for the need of any poisonous insecticides.for the next 2 days i would like to talk about SPIDERS. my mom and Cori are very afraid of them but would never hurt one .Spiders are one of our most misunderstood creatures. There are movies about them taking over your house, they are depicted in autumn decorations designed to scare people,but spiders are just like us. From our mutual disdain for mosquitoes and some species tend to their young, we have a lot in common with this arachnid . Plus, We need spiders in order to survive.Before you squash that spider that you just spied crawling across your floor, consider these five fascinating facts about these eight-leggers.
1. Mother spiders stay with their babies, just like we do.Almost all spider moms protect their young by creating a safe “blanket” made of silk to cover them with and then guard the sac until hatching. The moms that don’t leave or die before their babies hatch will stay with their wee spiderlings and care for them. The wolf spider, who is known as super-spider-mom, will carry the egg sac with her until her tots hatch. Once the wolf spider babies are born, they climb onto mom’s back and ride along until they are full developed. They survive by eating the yolk from their egg sacs. The wolf spider babies go everywhere that mama goes, including during her hunting. If a baby falls off of her back, she will halt what she’s doing and wait for the little bugger to hop back on. Comb-footed spider mamas also stay with their little ones and feed their offspring with liquid from their mouths. This all sounds a bit like attachment parenting.
2. We have the same archenemy: the mosquito. over one million people die each year due to mosquito-borne illnesses? There are 10 major diseases that are caused by these little buzzers, including Malaria and the West Nile virus. Well, our friend the spider eats those pesky pests. In fact, certain spider species, like the Malaysian jumping spider, get their nutrition solely from mosquitoes. Another jumping spider from Africa is known to eat mosquitoes exclusively, unlike most spiders who eat mosquitoes and other insects. Spiders are also known to stalk mosquitoes like cats

i am so happy you are enjoying all the butterflies at the castle. soon we will be able to have some honey from our bees. i am also going to release spiders which might scare a lt of birds but they will eat all the bad insects so we won't need to use use any insecticides and you will probably never even see any.

  Hi Pepper
we know its a fake bird because she admits its a fake bird. she hasn't even been on bird channel for about 2 years. her other bird Luigi was real but died last year. i knew as soon as Calypso turned up at the milonga that Jenny Lynn would have something to say. she could have chosen to ignore Jenny and Jenny could have chosen to ignore her but we all know Jenny. Being a teenager who seems to love drama she baited Chuck and even though Chuck didn't say anything that bad she said she was offended and reported him to BC who had said 2 years ago when the same thing happened that if it happened again he was off bird channel. anyway bird channel said they can come back but not until May. it is best to ignore birds that cause a lot of trouble because you never know what you might say that might offend them also.

anyway bird channel has decided to reinstate Jenny Lynn and flock sometime in May.

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's sunny and windy here. We had to put the fireplace on for a bit just to warm up the living room. We got a bit of cold weather for a few days but since they really needed the extra snow in the mountains I am just fine with it.
Mom had to renew Merlin's "Home Again" chip this morning. They charge $17.99 a year but that is not bad at all. With him being such a crazy cat it is necessary to keep all the info updated just in case he does get out. Everyone has learned to be vigilant when he is around so hopefully it is a service we never have to use.
Mom is feeling much better today. We have some cleaning up to do and then she needs to stop by the market. No bread or milk in the house!! Mandy will be getting a bath also. Then mom will be back to work tonight. She is not going to work on Friday night since there really isn't any reason to. She'll just take a vacation day for Sunday night.
I hope your day is just perfect!

IF I saw the maps correctly, you've had COLD weather lately. Today there is sun and it was 60 by noon.
I'm being sleepy. Mom thinks I'm in the next phase of a moult, I'm skittish too. Also not eating as well and gaining weight. I will NOT be 'bitey' with you, tho'. Want a jelly bean?

  Hi Pepper
all the blogs disappear. its making it very hard to talk to our friends. it does seem that BC is slowly starting to come back so we shall see how it goes

there is a developer who is building these extremely ugly and expensive super giant houses on a former farm right below our house. all their utilities are underground with the latest fiber optic equipment. our neighborhood has regular telephone poles and this new equipment is wrecking havoc on us. comcast says they can't find a problem but every time this developer starts with the underground cables for his plan, which we call the pit since it is below us and the developer removed every tree and shrub and the idiots who are buying these houses are not planting any, we have sporadic if at all cable service and our lights are now flickering.

today mom woke up to find our older cat foaming at the mouth and covered covered in poo on his hind end and legs and vomit and diarrhea all over the bedroom. mom gave him a bath and blow dried him and he was not happy. then she cleaned up the mess. she took away all water and food and started giving him 6cc of pedialyte every hour. he hasn't made any more diarreah and made a solid poo the size of a jelly bean. tonight he ate a small amount of cat food and is now sleeping.

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi Pepper
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods
There is a rapture on the lonely shore
There is society, where none intrudes
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal. -

HAPPY EASTER

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hello Pepper, Hello Angel~
Happy Easter! I hope you are having a great day!
We are having pizza today!!! I know it's not the traditional Easter meal but we had the traditional one on Tuesday when dad was home! We took a vote and pizza is what everyone wanted! Well, mom didn't really care. She has a cold and just wanted something that wasn't fussy!
I hope your Easter is just fabulous!

Mom just gave me a new little bunny to play with. It is small like Moose the mouse that Polly has. It is to replace my penguin as the weather seems to be settling into the 50s. We did not see the t'storms on Thursday, but did have a bit of rain. Next week is to be rain on and off.
Want to come by my perch and help me convince mom to get out the spa???

  Hi Pepper
A APRILS FOOLS DAY STORY- BELIEVE IT OR NOT
in trying to encompass my blogs for my campaign i have come up with this-----
the greatest thing you can do to reduce carbon emissions and combat global warming is to stop eating meat and go veggie. if the desire for meat is to overwhelming try roadkill. it is very plentiful and found along all roadways and doesn't cause horrific suffering at slaughterhouses. also remember to save your poop for future heat and fuel resources. also all CEO's of Exxon, Shell, BP,etc, Monsanto & Dupont are aliens from another planet intent on destroying earth as we now know it, by their fracking, constant oil spills, pipelines, non-stop plastic containers, chemicals and complete contamination of our drinking and water supplies.. they are very prolific and their offspring are Keurig K-Cups which live on a floating waste pile of plastic, in the Pacific Ocean, which is twice the size of Texas. if the K-Cups were lined up they would encompass the earth 10Xs. Alex from the LaHabra Flock asked about killer Bees. Killer Bees were introduced into Brazil in the mid 1950's by a scientist trying to breed a bee pollinator that was better suited to tropical places. the killer bees do pollinate but they also tried to kill all the native honeybees. Monsanto and Dupont gleefully said they would help by developing a poison so toxic it not only kills all the bees but the trees and plants as well. since this was hurting the Mexican drug cartels profits they have banned the poison in Mexico. to this day the US government is still spraying in south and central america in the 1980s a few killer bees hitched a ride on a Brazilian oil freighter and landed in Southern California where once again the conquering bees tried to wipe out the native bees. a few bees managed to mate with some of the native queen bees producing offspring that aren't as warrior like as the killers but not sweet like a honey bee but they are still pollinating so leave them alone. the month of April is hug a tree month so if you can't plant a tree go hug one and keep developers from chopping more down for shopping malls
HAPPY HUMPDAY
love Queen Boo Boo
