Hi! My name is Dino~ HAPPY ST. VALENTINE´S DAY MY FRIENDS!!

I am an African Grey from Stockholm, Intl.

Lots n´lots:) In swedish...

22 years old   M

African Grey

Oatrings and peanuts (trying to cut down on those tho but I just love ´em;) Also bananas, liverpaté (yeaaaah, I know), apples, tomatoes, cooked ham, eggs, carrots, chickpeas. ...Popcorns and more!

Top natural perches, me climbtree in the kitchen,hall, the Patio, and sometimes in a closet I decide to inspect

Being at the Vet´s, neighbours drilling holes in the wall, rain on my head, insects buzzing around my head;).....PINS in my NECK:(

When she sings and talks to me. When she let me snuggle up in her bed, and the scritches. ...when I´m up for it that is;) Our sessions of learning new things and all the praise I get after:)

Hanging like a bat while mom clean me Homey. Looking inside all the closets, known and unknown, peekaboo´s behind doors.....

Never give up and a new day will come with new possibilities..

  Hi Dino
It's Popeye.
Dad had an early appointment at the wound center yesterday so we were unable to blog with all of you. Sorry about that. Dad's leg continues to improve. Dad is having only a small amount of pain now. In fact, if he's busy with stuff he forgets all about it.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw "The Good Dinosaur". What a wonderful movie! The animation was incredible and the story line was beautiful. Even dad got a little misty eyed. After the movie they went to Costco to pick up some stuff for dinner and some already cooked and pealed eggs. Mom and dad are making deviled eggs to take to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 51. No more rain in sight for at least another week.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

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!

  Hi Dino
It's always good to see you. We are hoping for early spring, too. Mom hates snow and cold.
I'm fascinated with the new chair. I keep landing on it and mom keeps chasing me off for some reason. I have no idea why.
This morning mom had a tour with 4 year old kids again. They were there to learn about animals, and their chaperons insisted on the full hour tour! By the end of 45 minutes, mom's group and all the others she could see were getting restless, wandering off, talking to each other, etc, but mom, like the other docents, kept on going for the hour. Mom also found out that she can't take pics in the Pterosaur exhibit. She suspected as much, because the usual rule in the museum is that what belongs to them can be photographed, but not what doesn't. There is a nice book that mom will buy which goes along with the exhibit. Maybe we'll be able to share pics from there.
Now that she's home, mom is ours for the rest of the day. She got a load of laundry done the other day, so maybe today she'll get sheets and towels done, too. You never know...
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Don't forget to submit your pics for the Valentine contest on the Milonga page. Voting starts tomorrow! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Mr Dino-I have missed you friend-from Ms LaLo
Welcome to our world of slightly boring at the moment, but at least our computer seems to be working for now! We woke up to 17 degrees, and it is a bone chilling bitter cold, but so it goes here in our Illinois Mid-West! We are all doing well, and for those who care, all dad's vital numbers were at really great ranges, his Nurse was mostly impressed with his low Blood Sugar count, his BP numbers, and remaining status quo on his weight! Not much news at or home so we'll let you get on with your busy day, give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from your Jenny, Ziggy, LaLo, Christy, & daddy Dallas

We are settled in the house and enjoying the weather. Do NOT miss the snow and ice at all!
Ahhh, we had another sunny day of 86 and the pool was 84! Enjoyed lunch on the lanai with my parronts.

  Hello Dino~
I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Don't worry if you can't blog. I totally understand!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hey buddy! Dont ever worry about blogging. We know your mom is very busy. We were just happy to see that you and your mom were ok.
What kind of knee surgery did your granny have? Happy to hear that she is recovering well.
Those cruises sound like they are going to be fun!
Our weather is crazy too. A week ago we had a little snow....but a lot of ice. It started on a Thursday night.......and we were home bound until that Monday morning. Now this week we are having 70 degree temps.......and we were supposed to have severe thunderstorms today...but we just had wind and rain. Such a crazy weather we are having!
Sure hope BC is going to have the Bird Talk magazine. BC sure is acting crazy, isnt it?
Hope you had a great day!

What a beautiful day, our temps were 64°/47°, the average temps are 36°/21°! Tho it's going to cool down again, a high of 40° tomorrow.

Mom is going to be busy for the next couple weeks. She'll be helping Livi, her 7 yr old granddaughter with her science fair project. They are going to make several different kinds of crystals. Mom said that I get to taste the rock candy crystals, yummm!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Dino
Thank you again my dear friends for the Hatchday wishes and for BOTD honors! I had such a great Hatchday and it was wonderful to be queen for the day! Tho I must admit that I have my mom so well trained, she treats me like a queen every day!

Some friends asked me about two of my pics, so I'll answer in my blog.

In my one pic I chewed up two $20s. She put all the pieces into a baggie & went to her bank. Mom explained what happened & showed a pic of me. All the tellers came over to see the money shredding birdie & had a good laugh! Mom left with two unchewed $20s. Mom no longer leaves money on the table!

The other was about shreddable pinatas. They are my favorite toys! Mom always gets me a parrot & a horsie (or donkey). I always bite the face off first! Then I bite off the hanging string & destroy the rest of it on the floor!

I hope your day was a good one!

Thank you my dear friends for the honor of BOTD! Thank you for the Hatchday wishes! Two special days in a row, what a blast!

My 20th Hatchday was very special! My Aunt Amy (mom's bestie) came over to help me celebrate! After mom, Aunt Amy is my favorite person! Mom got me my favorite cake (and hers) white almond with whipped cream icing! I'm sampling the icing in my profile pic! We didn't have ice cream, mom didn't want me having too much sugar! Mom and Aunt Amy sang Happy Hatchday to me then I got to eat some of my delicious cake, then I got to unwrap my presents! Aunt Amy got me a bag of walnuts & and a bag of almonds. Mom got me 2 lbs of pistachios, a wicker ball toy and 2 shredding toys. Both are fillable pinatas...one of which was shredded in about 10 minutes! I had so much fun I didn't want the day to end! Then I woke up to find out that I was BOTD, WOO HOO! I spent the day at the castle celebrating with King Jedi! Thank you again my dear friends!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hello Dino~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!

I hope you are having a fun day! McKenzie is napping at the moment so I have a chance to get a note out! Who knew that our entire lives would be taken over by one little puppy?? I feel just awful when I can't get by to say hello but there are times when it's non stop around here. I think the puppy is trying to set a new worlds record for destruction of furniture! It is not going over well with mom!hehehehe
Mom is helping with the toy clearance at work. It's that time of year again! Actually they are about 2 weeks early with it this year. Soon all the pool toys will be out and people will be walking by dreaming of warmer weather and lots of sunshine.hehehehehe HECK! Easter will be here before you know it! Well, it will be in the stores before you know it. We have always enjoyed winter but this year we can't wait for Spring and some sunshine and long walks around the lake. It makes for a sleepy puppy and more time for me on BC!
I sure hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Thursday evening, Dad, Uncle Geno and Uncle J.J. went to see a live theater production of Arthur Miller's "ALL MY SONS", which was excellent. It's one of Dad's favorite plays, and a difficult work to do well. A good night of theater.

I hadn't seen Uncle Geno in a few days, but he was visiting last night. His beard is extra long right now - and he's extra Scruffy. He's so much fun to play around.

I'm sure almost everybirdie is an early riser...NOT ME!!! I won't get my birdie butt out of bed before 10 am! Mom takes the 2 wiener dogs outside around 7am then she's banished back into her room! If there's something she needs to do, she'll tippytoe around...not an easy task with a leg brace & quad cane...being careful not to disturb me! If any kids come in the morning & make noise, I tell them, "SHHHHH I'M TARRRRRED"! Then, right around 10 every morning, I'll start laughing & yell, "BUB UUUUUP"! I call myself "Bub", the only place mom gets to use my actual name is on BC! Mom will then uncover me, I step up onto her hand, give her kisses & say, "Love you, wanna eat"! Another day of mischief & hijinx begins!

Hi, Dino -

Happy Wednesday.

Dad and Uncle Geno took Uncle JJ out to dinner last night for his 64th Birdthday.
{my, that's old}. They went to a favorite local spot with good Italian Food.

It was a very cold day, 10 degrees with the wind-chills bringing the feeling below zero.
Thank goodness we didn't get much new snow - but still a bitter cold day.

After dinner they watched the movie "Without Love" with Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy and Lucille Ball (1945). Dad had never heard of it before - nice film.

Have a great day

The Steelers lost on Sunday, so with a sad face, mom took down our "TERRIBLE TREE". She wrapped up her precious Black & Gold and Steelers ornaments and put them away until next year. Mom's beloved Steelers didn't win but they made it to the 2nd round of playoffs & she's proud of them! Hopefully our TERRIBLE TREE will be up for Superbowl Sunday next year!

Another frigid cold day, it doesn't look like we will be above freezing temps until Monday! Mom has to bundle up the wiener dogs in their coats to take them out...they sure don't stay out very long!

You'll be happy to know that I've been on my best birdie behavior! No more birdie bites...so far! Mom's finger is very sore, but starting to heal. She keeps it lubed up & won't let me near the bandage!

Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.

Dad and Uncle Geno saw "THE REVENANT" - said it was well-made but they didn't really like it.
Parts were violent and brutal, other parts just tedious. Beautiful vistas -good performances, but can't say they'd see it again.

My dad accidentally left me out while he was taking a shower, and I had tons of fun! I flew around his room knocking things over, teased the Button Quail by trying to pluck out their feathers, left a few deposits on some valuable items, sat on his pillow, shredded some papers, pulled out all his bookmarks, and untied some string. Then dad came in. he sat down on the bed, grabbed his book and noticed that the bookmark was missing. Then he saw me chirping around on the floor. I had a good day. How was yours?

Well, my mom isn't a bizillionaire...BUT she is a dollaraire! She matched the power ball & won a whopping $8! If she kicks in $3 more, I can get a bag of delicious pistachios... hmmmm my favorite!

Ah oh, I just got myself in BIG TROUBLE & I'm in birdie jail and it's 3 1/2 hrs until my bedtime! Mom was in the kitchen cooking dinner. I can see her perfectly from my house, but I decided that I wanted to be a bit closer. I climbed up onto the back of a chair, which I do frequently so I can supervise mom's progress. Mom fixed our dinner plate & said,  "Come honey, let's eat" and put out her hand. I don't know what came over me! Instead of stepping up, I viciously tore into her right index finger & tore off a hunk of flesh. Mom let out a scream, grabbed some paper towels to wrap around her hand, picked up the chair & made me go inside my house AND locked the door! SHE didn't even apologize when she bumped my tailfeathers! Mom yelled & called me a bad bird. She must really be upset because she NEVER raises her voice to me! She completely ignored me when I said "Love you mom"! Mom disappeared into the bathroom for quite awhile. She controlled the bleeding, splinted her finger & wrapped it. Many years ago, mom used to be an EMT with an ambulance service. She's thankful for her first aid skills. They've come in handy throughout the years, especially when my sissys were little! After about 2 hours, she reheated her dinner. Can you believe that she sat down on the couch right beside me and never offered me one bite??!!!

I made a new friend! His name is Jasper, a Double Yellow-Headed Amazon & he's new to BC. Would you please stop by to say hello? His page is #279331. Thanks!

I hope you are having a fantastic day! Mine has been pretty good. I love your Valentine's picture! It's great!!!
I have been on puppy duty most of the day. It sure is a hard job. Everything is taking so much longer since mom has to stop every few seconds to chase after the puppy! It takes a long time just to get a note done these days!
It's been a clear and pretty day but it was cold. We just hung out at home today and did some cleaning. There is a lot more to do since McKenzie is a bird puppy! She loves chewing paper and cardboard! Yep! Part bird!
It's our weekend but I have no idea what is planned. I hope we get to take some time and watch a movie. There's lots of new things at the Redbox.

Heppy Snow. We got maybe 8" outiside - not really sure as Dad hasn't been out yet - we may have more than that. Dad is glad he was home last night as he hates driving while it's snowing
[In Buffalo, NY it's inevitable you're gonna drive through fallen snow - but Fall-ING Snow is another matter. Dad tries his best to avoid being out in the blinding snowfall].

Dad picked up some seeds for me yesterday - and surprised me with my favorite toy - it has horizontal popsicle sticks - well, at least when it arrives - Ha-Ha.
These never last long and I enjoy chewing up each layer.

  Hi Dino
Just a quick hello today sweetie! Mom spent the entire day cleaning & doing laundry. She barely sat down all day & is exhausted! She's hoping that the insomnia doesn't win tonight, it's only 8pm & can barely keep her eyes open. That's good news to me...hopefully she won't be up until 4am roaming around the house disturbing me!

Mom isn't sure if she'll be awake at 11pm to see the powerball numbers. I guess she'll have to wait until the morning to see if she's a bizillionaire!
Love & a vote

  Beautiful profile pic Dino
We get some rain to go on top of the snow Friday. Then it will turn back to snow. Mom prefers the white stuff with very cold--the snow stays white then.
Every year has its good and bad. The important thing is to do our best.

  Hi Dino
It's Popeye.
Sorry we were not on the BC but dad had his doctor's appointment on Monday and mom had an appointment with OC Access, a disabled transportation service, yesterday. Everything went well. The new antibiotic seems to be working and dad's leg doesn't hurt as much.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 67 and a low of 47. Today dad has a landscaping company coming to cut back all the trees and bushes around the house to stop little crawly things from getting up on the roof and in the afternoon he has an appointment with the wound center.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi Dino
How are you sweetie? On last night's news, they said Big Ben is probable to play in Sunday's game. However, they jumped gun a couple nights ago by saying Antonio Brown would be able to play. Right now he's questionable. He's still undergoing the concussion protocol and must pass several tests before he's cleared to play. Mom has sure been praying for him! She HOPES  that he can play, but she's PRAYING that he's OK!

To any of you birdies that live in Ohio, and/or are Bengals fans, I mean you no disrespect. I'm sure when your players are victims of dirty hits you become as outraged as my mom! If any of our players or our fans do something dirty or something totally uncalled for, such as cheering when a player gets injured, mom REALLY chastises them, & has done so in public! At a game, regardless whether it's home or away, they are representing our city & their negative actions make us all look bad! To cheer when another person is hurt, mom finds that to be unconscionable & classless!

Anyway, that Burfict is a dirty player! And it's not just mom's opinion, based on his fines, the NFL believes so!
*In 2013 Burfict was fined $60k for dirty hits.
"Must have taken his nice pills in 2014, only fined $25k.
*2015 -- $120k...so far. If the 3 game suspension holds up on the dirty hits against Ben & Antonio, it will end up costing him OVER $500k!
At first look, mom didn't think that hit to Ben was dirty, just a very hard hit. THEN SHE SAW THE REPLAY! The hit wasn't illegal, BUT when he got to his feet, that nasty a**hole drove his knee down into Ben's right shoulder! PLUS, his vicious late hit on Antonio (and his team mate's 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty immediately after) cost his team the game! Hehehehehehehe! Mom was going to put 8 hehes, but was afraid birdies would perceive that as gloating!
I hope you had a great day sweetie!

What a great picture! Happy New Year to you, too!
You might notice new pics in all our galleries today. Mom finally got them off the phone and onto the computer. She had to turn the whole tower around to find a USB port, though. Her old hard drive had 2 on the front, this one doesn't. She had to unplug the webcam to plug in the phone, too. Anyway the first 2 pics on my (Falco's) page show where she spent Sunday, at the Kodiak Island Grizzly bear exhibit. The mom and cubs are behind glass, and papa bear is on rocks on the floor in the open.
The next pics are part of Phipps show. They do things inside and out, and some of the pics from outside aren't great, but they are finally posted.
It's snowing today, and it's actually sticking. So far there are a couple of inches. After mom walked the dogs this morning, she had to shovel the front walk to find the morning paper. It was buried in the yard, though, not on the walkway.
It looks like today will be a lazy inside day for mom, she hates driving in the snow. That means we may not get broccoli tomorrow. Of course, if the snow stops, and the roads are cleared, mom will go to the store to buy us lots more fresh veggies and fruits. We have about one more day of pomegranate, and a couple more days of yam but they're running short too.
I hope you are having a great day there, not too cold and no bad weather. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

Winter is finally finding Buffalo. We will be getting 6-12 inches of snow today - and poss another foot-to-15 inches Wed to Thursday.
~Sigh~
We Do live in Buffalo, NY after all - it was bound to find us at some point.

I've been moody this week and Dad has a few extra beak-holes in his hands but we still love each other. I am much calmer today.
Dad even made me "Flitzer Coffee" this morning.

  Hi Dino
Good to hear from you. Happy New Year! We had a quiet one but, that's ok. We are pretty much settled in our new home now. The ex-home up north is covered in snow. Glad we don't have it down here. But, it's pretty cold I say!!! I don't think it should be colder than 70! Well, that's my opinion!
I think the new magazine comes out in another week.
Yes, we get a lot of really bad weather in the US. We just had a tornado south of us in Cape Coral this past weekend. That was close enough for me.

Today I was busy making confetti out of a paper towel until mom saw it. I'm an artist so why did she say "What are you doing"? Well, so much for that art project. Maybe we'll work on one together as the weather will be cold. Tonight it's going down to high 40's (next 2 nights too)!!! We will only be in 62 to 65 for a couple of days. What happened to our good weather? At least we aren't buried in snow like our up north home.
Hugs
Chyna
