Daddy (and Mom) took us home from the pet store (he was a falconer and had red tail hawks previously, but we smaller birds are easier...) If anyone is interested in becoming a falconer, you need to find a currently licensed falconer to sponsor and train you. You have to take and pass a test. You have to pay for a license. You need to have all the equipment to keep a bird - a mews (the hawkhouse), a travel box, a falconer's glove, jesses for the bird, hoods, food, etc. and everything is inspected by fish and game. Then when you have all the training and license you build a trap and catch a wild (first year) red-tail hawk, but during the trapping season. All novices start with a red-tail and you have to train it and eventually you take it hunting. Whew! Dad was the falconer, but Mom would tag along. They did that for a few years, but now they have us, the cockatiels!

Mom learns easier by someone showing her and then her doing it herself too. Sometimes words just dont cut it LOL.
Today mom went for some groceries but she wasn’t gone too long. Dad was home so I didn’t have to be in my condo so that was good. Mom got a sweet potato and she cooked it for me and added some in with my bean and rice mix today. I like them but just for a change once in a while. Mom says they are good for me too. “Roses are red, Violets are blue, Your house is blessed because a fid lives with you.” leaving a vote for you.~~your friend forever, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Well, we got a little more rain (.27") last night to bring us up to .91 for the past 5 days. All that uproar and 2 or was it 3 different storms, and it all adds up to less than an inch! However the lawn sure seemed to like it. Just a week since Dad mowed, and it is a jungle out there. Should have a warm up this weekend which means a sunbath for me and sun tea for Mom.

Mom was feeling a little ooky this morning, so she skipped zumba. She figured jumping around while her tummy was doing strange things was not a good idea. I agreed, since she spent the time reading her kindle with me.

I hate to admit it, but Dad is a genius. He brought out the old radio/CD player that he had stowed away because the CD player part didn't work, and now I have sound in my room again. And then he reminded Mom that when she replaced the TV in the bedroom, it was because she wanted an upgrade. That TV still worked. So they tried hooking it up in the living room, and voila! They just saved about $550!! Mom asked Dad if she owed him that much since she was going to buy the new stuff, and he just laughed at her....so maybe he's not so smart after all.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
today is World Wildlife Day—a day to celebrate the amazing variety of animals with which we share the planet and a special day to raise awareness of the plight of wildlife.

The United Nations has designated March 3 as World Wildlife Day, described by the UN as “an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts and obstacles faced by those who wish to conserve populations of endangered species and their habitats all over the world.

Wildlife crime is a key issue when it comes to the conservation of increasingly dwindling environmental resources shared by humans, plants and animals. Without the help of citizens all over the globe, wildlife crime will remain a threat to our world and all who share it. Thousands of species are decreasing at alarming rates as ruthless profiteers prey on the most vulnerable populations around the world.The illegal wildlife trade is among the worst and most lucrative transnational crimes, after drugs, arms, and human trafficking. Global commercialization of wild animals and plants is a multi-billion dollar industry that results in extreme animal cruelty and severe population declines.

On World Wildlife Day, we ask that you reflect on how wildlife crime is endangering our planet, and what you can do to help.

Today, on World Wildlife Day, speak out loudly for wildlife—because they can't speak out for themselves!

Where they had to put Nana was near the hospital, so Aunt Rose will still be driven there every day and spend the day. It's not the place they hoped for, which was full.
There's not much going on today. Mom is going to have a late lunch/early dinner with her sister later, after they shop at Barnes and Noble and maybe a few other places. Other than that, it's a dull day here.
It's supposed to go up to 42 today, which will mean that a lot of the nasty ice will melt, but mom never believes that until it happens. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Blue and Jewel.
The rain that was predicted for yesterday never showed up. There were rain clouds all around us but when they got close to us they turned around and went the other way. Not Fair!
Mom and dad filled the car up with gas yesterday afternoon. Dad looked around for the loan officer so he could finance the gas but couldn't find him. Then they had a nice Japanese dinner and then to the movies to see The Hobbit. It was almost 11pm when they got home. Meanwhile we were in lockdown. Hummmph!
Today will be clear, with a high of 68 and a low of 47.
Hope your day is fun.

The Sharks won ??? Go Shark's !!! Kobe Bryant of the Lakers is going to play one more season and then retire... Then he's going to make a documentary movie of his life.
Pretty interesting.

We got a lot of rain and Huntington beach got pounded with a hail storm. There was so much hail that it packed on the ground and the beach looked like it was covered with snow for hours !!!
There was lot's of people surfing on the hail into the ocean.
I bet you the water had to be freezing !!!
Anyway they say this is the first time in history this ever happened at Huntington beach or any beach around here.

My mommy is staying home and waiting for the call. She wants to be at the hospital when the G-baby comes.
She can't wait !!!

Monday Dad got me in the Travel Cage and took me to get my claws done with Aunt Maria.
I decided, for a change, not to fight it, and it passed quickly. Dad even bought some extra seeds for me while he was there. I must say, it was nice getting out as I've been stuck at home for the past couple months in record-cold temperatures.

The rest of the day went well, enjoyed some good Daddy-n-Bird Time. ~Wings Up~

Mom had a really short day yesterday - two hour delay for school cause of snow and then she had a workshop in the afternoon - she got home when she should have is all that mattered to me :) This afternoon is her drama club meeting . . . only we're supposed to get a couple more inches of snow so she may cancel - wait and see.
Good news is that by the weekend it's supposed to be near 40 ! ! !

My latest project includes carrying my set of measuring cups one at a time and filling up all the food and water bowls with them ! Then when I get hungry or thirsty, I throw them and they make a great big clunking noise ! ! !

The road crews never work weekends unless we have a really bad major storm. But the highway was good today. That really helps a lot.
That was a pic taken on a cruise. That usually don't do have that done ... not since skin-sis has grown up.
We had another sunny day with 18 degrees. Tuesday it's back to a winter weather advisory. It looks like an all day snow. The bad part is, we always get a really bad winter storm at the beginning of March or the end. So far, it came in as a lamb ... oh oh! Well, it's back to the footie pj's and hot chocolate for me.

Today mom and I washed clothes and scrubbed the floors. I got to jump in the clothes when they came out of the dryer..ummm they are so nice and warm. I didn’t really help to scrub much but when mom got that sweeper running I took a bath in my water bowl and gave her more splash on the floor to clean up plus get me new water too.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
since we are still getting winter advisory warnings, more snow and temps still dropping down to the low 10s i thought i would talk about chickadees those cute little black and white balls of fluff we see flying around outside in this weather. Chickadees Are Cold Weather Machines

Though any bird that survives winter in the North amazes those of us that depend on furnaces and warm blankets, the black-capped chickadee may be the most incredible of all winter survivors. although none can compare to the emperor penguin thats for sure.

“Black-capped Chickadees have a wonderful assortment of adaptations for the winter. “Carefully hidden food items, dense winter coats, specially selected winter roost cavities, and perhaps most remarkable of all, the ability to go into nightly hypothermia, thus conserving large amounts of energy, greatly increases the chances of survival,” The ability to go into regulated hypothermia actually lowers the chickadee’s body temperature in a controlled manner, down to about 12 or 15 degrees (F.) below their normal daytime temperature of 108 degrees (F.). This remarkable adaptation allows the bird to conserve almost 25 percent of its hourly metabolic expenditure when the outside temperature is at freezing. The lower the outside temperature, the more energy conserved

“Chickadees are not the suburban wimps that some people think they are as every winter morning chickadees replace the fat they used overnight and struggle against starvation and stinging cold. even though they are tough survivors that live close to the edge of life i still find myself partial to Bue Jays as i spot their bright blue color against the white snow and hear them calling out to me every morning. at least i like to think they are calling out to me.

Nice to be asked if one would like the earlier appointment due to a cancelled one espically if it can work for you.I can understand the woman asking to be seen since she had a far drive but still not fair to put everyone else behind.
Still sounding like it could get quite messy tomorrow but not as bad as first called for.So if things are cleared up in the afternoon my mom might run to the store to get a few things but we will see I hope she will just stay home with me all day.Happy monday I hope your week is off to a good start.

We had rain all night long, and a bit today. Even so the rainfall for the last 5 days only adds up to .76". So no need to water the lawn (not that we do anyway, what with the drought and all), but it sure isn't enough to raise the level of the reservoirs. Maybe there was some snow in the mountains though. That is even more important for our Spring melt and water supply.

My radio in my room died today. At first Mom thought she had just lost the station, but there was nothing on either AM or FM, so she tossed. Weird, because the TV in the living room is dying too! It has sound, but just a bright line across the middle of a dark screen. Both were really old though, so at least now Mom and Dad can shop for both at once. Dad says they should get a smart TV and put it in the bedroom for Mom to watch and do streaming on from her Amazon Prime, and he will put the bedroom TV in the living room for him. It is a nice TV and only a year old, but it is not wireless and can't do Wi-Fi. Mom says it works for her!

Meanwhile no sunbaths till Thursday or Friday, but the weekend is looking very nice with temps in the upper 70s. Sure hope it turns out to be more real than the "Storm Watch" that didn't leave much rain at all.

It looks like the Sharks need to learn to close the game once their up in points in the last 2 Quarters...
That's the same problem the Lakers had. First they are up and then they go down and lose...
Are you sure the Sharks and Lakers didn't train together when it comes to closing a game heehee !!!

The grand baby is due anytime now. My mommy's really excited and she keeps buying baby stuff. The baby's going to be a girl. Every thing is pink !!!

Mom never liked holding the raptors by the legs, it meant no control over the wings, and they can wing slap pretty hard. The new method of restraint is much better!
Yesterday mom did call off at the museum, as the weather was horrid. It snowed most of the morning and into the afternoon, then it changed to rain and froze. The good news is that Josh came and shoveled, then salted. That didn't keep it from freezing overnight, though, so mom had to salt the front walk and the driveway before she could walk the dogs and leave.
Mom's did her taxes yesterday, and with the refund, she may buy a new stove. At least that's what she's thinking right now.
Today mom worked at the very cold wildlife center. They have set up space heaters, but the building is so big with high ceilings, they didn't help much. Mom cleaned up after the gull in the small flight aviary (no heater in there), then she worked in the recovery room (again, no heater in there). She was pretty cold when she got done with the animals, so she asked if it was okay to leave. They said yes, of course! Now she's working on warming up.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and staying warm. Spring in 18 days! Hugs, Falco

Well it is a sunny morning and the total of another 3 inches of new snow from Sunday...About 30 but very windy and it makes it feel a bit colder....Gee, I must clarify myself...We may visit neighbors without going to the gate to ask for permission but any cars, trucks, etc. driving into the place must stop at the gate house and if the guard does not have a call from us telling them we are expecting company they call us and ask if it is okay to let the person in...Yes, no doorbells on most of the homes maybe the ones being built recently have one....Sure do hope that you will get enough rain so you do not have to go through a drought again....have a wonderful Monday....Pecked another V4U....With many birdie wing hugs to both of you...Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

Dad got most of his work done yesterday so today should be quiet. This afternoon Bob is coming over for an early dinner and then they are going to see "The Hobbit" at the cheep theater. It's a late show, starting at 8:15pm but it's the only time it's showing in 3D. Bob likes 3D.
Last night we had another 0.40 inches of rain and they're calling for more today. It helps a lot but we still need more.
Today will be rainy, with a high of 63 and a low of 46.
Hope your day is fun.

Where did the weekend go ? Where does the weekend go ? Although yesterday was a good day with my Laura coming to celebrate her birthday ! After some chicken (yum) there was a strawberry for me while the hoomans had brownie cake ! Then I got to have the wrappings from the present . . . the only bad part was it ended too soon since mom wanted Laura home before dark cause of all the snow ! Then she made her call as soon as she got home safely !

Yep, about 6 more inches ! It started just before noon and kept coming - a light snow, but steady, so it added up. Mom is waiting now for the phone to ring about a delay . . . did you guys get some of your rain ?

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Not one road crew in two counties for the whole weekend! It's not just our area.
That photo was taken by a photographer in his set up ... not real!
I enjoyed my day playing and getting into trouble ... hehehe. I loved the sunny day with no snow but it will be back tomorrow. Hope you had a nice weekend.
Hugs

SO NOT MUCH RAIN? WE HAD SOME LIGHT SNOW TODAY, JUST A LIGHT COATING ON THE OTHER SNOW STILL HERE. THE BIGGEST SNOW THEY SAY IS COMING TUESDAY.

GREAT NEWS, NANA IS DOING MUCH BETTER TODAY. SHE IS SITTING UP IN A CHAIR AND DOING HER LEG EXERCISES THAT PT GAVE HER. SHE HAS BEEN ON A COUPLE WALKS AND IS USING THE BATHROOM WITH ASSISTANCE FROM THE NURSES. SHE ISN'T RELYING ON PAIN MEDS AS SHE DOESN'T WANT TO BE CONFUSED. SHE WILL BE TRANSFERED TO THE REHAB CENTER TOMORROW.

KEEP THE PRAYERS GOING FOR NANA

Mom never thought of picking up the stitches with a crochet hook.That probably would of been easier but mom was lucky she got them this time. Oh my its going to take more then a couple of days for mom to ever finish this hat LOL.
Today mom and I watched this girl sing the cup song on face book. I really liked it and just watched it and was so involved in it so mom played it again for me. She was telling skin sis about the song and the grand knows it and promises she will sing and do it for me the next time I see her. Maybe I need my own cup so I can sing along LOL “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

My mom now gets the automated call maybe a few days before or the day before her appointment which nice.Yes at least she wasnt late or totally missed her appointment the time she showed a week early.Cant believe they squeezed in that woman who showed up on the wrong day.Not fair for everyone else to run behind then.
Hope you can get more rain.How is a noram spring for rain there?I now you said before winter is usually the rainy season.They are still talking a wintery mix here for tuesday.Rain then freezing rain turning to snow could see up to 6 inches I will believe that when I see it.We hardly have got any snow this winter everything keeps going south.Have a great evening my friends.

Well, we finally got our rain last night, but it was only .47" total. The sky is still very dark, but Dad says it isn't going to rain any more. He is usually pretty accurate, better than the weather geeks anyway. Don't know when I will be able to get outside for a sunbath, because there's nothing above mid 60s in the forecast.

When my mom got home from the gym today, she walked into a house that smelled wonderful. Dad had a pork roast on a bed of potatoes in the oven, and Mom started salivating as soon as she walked in the door. She shared a plate with me at 2PM when it was done, and we both loved it. Yumm!

Congrats to Flitzer on winning his crown. He looks mighty handsome in it, and now we start voting for pretty little BooBoo. Her mom will do her best to campaign for her, but let's remember her back is not completely healed up yet. So please get over to page #162724 every single day to vote whether she is able to blog you or not.

  HI PEARL AND SILVER
March has come in like a lion in our neck of the woods and its snowing snowing, snowing. i would like to start out my campaign by talking about HUMAN POOP. More than 2.5 billion people in the developing world lack access to toilets, and a child dies every 15 seconds from diarrhea, usually the result of food or water becoming contaminated by human waste. Each year, 200 million tons of the world’s poop also goes completely untreated, ending up directly in lakes, rivers, and oceans.

in Kenya, , $324 million is lost every year due to sickness and missed work hours caused by poor sanitation. Nonprofits and businesses have experimented with what to do with human waste. Haiti is famous for distributing “composting toilets” that drastically lower the risk of contracting diseases. by collecting the poop from toilets, treating it, and selling it as fertilizer.

in Kenya Instead of composting the waste to grow food, it’s turning it into energy to cook it by distributing toilets to local families, emptying them each month, and turning the poop into briquettes. After the waste is collected from toilets around town, it’s put it in a solar concentrator that uses mirrors to heat the waste to temperatures that have been shown by the Centers for Disease Control to kill pathogens, making it safe for reuse.

Across Africa and around the world, hundreds of millions of people cook with wood and charcoal. Most charcoal comes from trees that are slowly cooked down in huge earthen ovens, removing the moisture without oxidizing the wood so that it becomes a more efficient source of heat per volume. But the process consumes a lot of trees—four tons of trees produce just one ton of charcoal, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization—and with populations on the continent rising exponentially, deforestation is only increasting. Already, forest cover in Kenya has fallen to just 2 percent, and the price of charcoal is rising.

Moreover, smoke from burning charcoal indoors can be hazardous 6 percent of global diseases and 7 percent of disease-related deaths are caused by respiratory infections. poop briquettes contain one-third less charcoal than normal ones. For now the briquettes being given away for testing purposes.“When you look at the chemical composition of poop, it’s 90 percent organic matter and 40 percent carbon. So not only is there a high demand for fuel, but poop from a chemical composition standpoint already has a great composition to be turned into fuel,” he said.one major obstacle is the “ick” factor. reservations tend to disappear as soon as they try out the odorless briquettes for themselves. the proof is in the smell—or rather, lack thereof. They see it’s not smelling, it’s cooking good.”

THANKYOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

  HI PEARL & SILVER!!!!
Sorry not able to blog yesterday because the parronts went to Long Island, New York yesterday to visit with skin sister and family...You have a great point there how can anybody find out who has done some work for you if it can not be posted except for coming to your door and asking you if you know of anybody reliable to do a certain job....Plus the homes in this gated community do not have doorbells because anybody that would be visiting must stop at the gate and we are then informed who is there and asked will it be alright to let them come in ....Dad has said he needs an answer on who would be responsible for any tree damage that might come from the empty lot...Because it certainly will not be him....Hey, guess what we are getting another 5 inches of snow today.....The rest is still on the ground because we have not had temps high enough to melt any mount of snow as of yet...Heard that California is getting some much needed rain...Does that happen to be where you are living?...Hope so....Have a nice Sunday...Pecked a V4U...With many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friends..Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Congratulations to Flitzer, he makes a good looking king. Please remember to vote for Booboo this month, it will be another BC first to have a rare Bali Blue mynah in the castle next month, hahaha.
Here's March, coming in like a lion! We are getting a ton of snow today. Well, not really, but it's going to snow pretty much all day long. They are predicting 5" but if it keeps up it will be more. When mom walked the dogs, it was already about 4 inches deep, and, being Sunday, the plow hasn't hit the street yet. Mom may call off work at the museum if we don't hear that truck soon. She still has to shovel the driveway, too.
The news about the center is that it may take 4 to 6 weeks for the gas lines to be fixed. There will be no heat, other than space heaters, in the building, and no hot water. I guess the good news is that it is an electric dryer, so the laundry can still be done. They just fixed the huge washer, so laundry problems should go away this week.
Mom may work on her taxes today, especially if she doesn't go to work. Her one Coursera course finishes this week, the other 2 will still go on, so her evenings are pretty much occupied. I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
No phone calls for dad last night. He got to sleep all night. We were all surprised that he wasn't tired yesterday. Maybe all the coffee he drank had something to do with it.
We got some rain last night. A whopping 0.06 inches. But it looks like it was enough to dissolve the Weed & Feed stuff that dad put on the front lawn. The weather underground site shows rain for two more days but dad doesn't think it will amount to anything.
Today will be rainy, with a high of 63 and a low of 47.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  hi guys !
Happy Sunday ! Mom and dad got home pretty late yesterday ! They brought in pizza for the g'parronts and watched GONE WITH THE WIND ! Do you know how long that is ? At least they brought me home some sugar snap peas :)

Today comes the snow - 4-6 inches by tomorrow, we'll see if it effects school at all. I guess a lot depends on the timing, and how much change over there is to ice. In the meantime, it'll be a COOKIE day ! ! Later on my Laura will come and we'll celebrate her birthday :)

Have a good day :) Love you ! Cookie

PS. You are the winner for Name That Tune last week ! Don't forget to try again !
