She spoils me rotten, she scratches under my beak, she takes me with her a lot, we shower together & dance & squawk loudly whenever we can.

Love to get into my mom's shirt & hang on her bra strap. If she's eating something & won't share, I will try to pull mom's mouth open with my beak so she'll share! We love to play peek-a-boo, dance & whisper! Also, have climbed up a flight of 14 steps trying to find mom!.

Pay attention to me! I'm the boss of the house...the cat & dog are both afraid of me!.

  Hi Joey
DAy 8
How are u sweetie? Well, the Polar Vortex is finally heading back to the Arctic Circle, where it belongs! The g-kids had a 2 hour delay on Monday & cancellation yesterday & today! There was supposed to be just a 2 hour delay today, but because of these frigid temps, the school buses wouldn't start. They said that at these extreme temps diesel gas turns to gel...but it will warm up enough for them to go back tomorrow...the temp is going up to 33 degrees...it's going to feel like a heat wave! Monday night we had a low of -13 & Tuesday we had a high of -5!
Today we will continue with: WHEN TO CONTACT UR VET.
CONTACT UR VET IMMEDIATELY IF UR BIRD:

HAS SIGNS OF GASTROINTESTINAL, URINARY, OR REPRODUCTIVE DISTRESS INCLUDING:
*Straining continually, but unable to produce feces or urates
*Choking
*Swallowing a foreign body (ex: toy, cage decoration, bell clapper)
*Any condition that makes it difficult to eat or manipulate food (injury to a foot or the beak)
*A prolapse or eversion (being turned outward or inside out) at the vent or bleeding from the vent
*Egg binding: straining & having difficulty producing an egg
*An overdose of medication or suspected poisoning
HAS SIGNS OF GENERAL ILLNESS OR NERVOUS SYSTEM OR MUSCULAR DISEASE INCLUDING:
*Extreme weakness, lethargy or depression, unconsciousness, collapse, or coma
*Seizures (flapping wings while lying in the bottom of the cage)
*A head tilt nystagmus (eyes move rapidly from side to side), staggering, walking in circles, difficulty sitting on a perch, or other problems moving
*Severe or continuous pain
*Sudden inability to bear weight on a leg or use a wing
*Swollen or injured foot due to a leg band problem.
Tomorrow we will finish this with: CONTACT UR VET WITHIN EIGHT HOURS.
Have a great day sweetie, I'll see u tomorrow!

  Hi Joey
DAY 2
How are u sweetie? We are praying that everybirdy makes it thru the upcoming storm(s). We will be having below zero temps & a few inches of snow, but nothing like our friends in the far north-eastern states!
Today's topic is: WHAT CONSTITUTES AN EMERGENCY? A medical emergency is a serious and/or life-threatening injury or disease that requires immediate care. In some cases such as bleeding, first aid at home may be the best 1st course of action. Here are some guidelines on when to call ur avian vet.
CALL IMMEDIATELY WHEN UR BIRD HAS/IS:
*doesn't stop bleeding
*blood in droppings or in regurgitated food
*extensive burns
*collapsed or can't maintain balance
*has been poisoned
*puncture wound or deep cut
*cannot breathe
*straining to pass droppings or an egg
CALL SAME DAY WHEN BIRD HAS/IS:
*lost her/his appetite
*an eye injury
*swallowed a foreign object
*low body temp
*mutilating his/her skin
*loose droppings
*develops a sudden swelling on body
CALL NEXT DAY WHEN UR BIRD:
*is excessively thirsty
*seems to have itchy skin
Bird owners are frequently unsure if a problem is truly an emergency. The best thing to do is to follow ur instincts & use good common sense. If there is any doubt in your mind regarding the severity of ur bird's condition, it's best to treat it as an emergency.
Tomorrow's topic will be triage (first aid priorities). See u tomorrow sweetie!

DAY 1
How are u sweetie? I'm excited to begin my campaign on birdie first aid! First, I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Momma Deb, my darling Casey's mom, for making all the awesome campaign pics for me! I couldn't have done it without her!
I will start with a basic first aid kit, which is helpful to have if an emergency occurs. Mom keeps mine in a 19 at storage container w/ lid.
*IMPORTANT PHONE #s-ur vet, emergency clinic & poison control ctr.
*PAPER & PEN to make notes on bird's condition.
*TOWELS for catching & restraining ur bird
*STYPTIC POWDER/STICK (beak & nails only) or CORNSTARCH (can be used on skin)
*SCISSORS, NAIL CLIPPERS & NAIL FILE
*NEEDLE-NOSED PLIERS-to pull broken blood feathers
*PEROXIDE or other disinfectant solution
*EYE IRRIGATION-such as saline or contact wetting solution
*BASIC BANDAGE MATERIAL-such as gauze square & rolls, MASKING TAPE-does NOT stick to feathers
*PEDIALYTE or GATORADE
*EYE DROPPER
*SYRINGES to irrigate wounds or feed sick birds
*PENLIGHT
*COTTON SWABS to apply meds & clean wounds
*BETADINE SOAP-which is anti-bacterial, for foot injuries
*HEATING PAD or HEAT LAMP-home use
*HEAT PACK to keep bird warm during transport; wrap pack in towel - DO NOT apply directly to bird, burns could result.
Tomorrow we will discuss what constitutes an emergency & triage/first aid priorities.
THANK U SO MUCH FOR UR SUPPORT!
See u tomorrow sweetie!

  Hello Joey
Dec 24: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

Ok, Ok already!! Calm down!! Yes I know what day it is. Get your warm coats again cause you will need them.
Every birdie gets in the shuttle. Yes, there are a couple bails of hay in the back. There are apples and carrots in the storage bins also. I have a good supply of cookies and milk too.

Cookie put the cookies back!! LA, no you cant bring your back pack full of glue and glitter.

Yep, we are off to the North Pole. And you all know who lives there. Yes you are right. Its Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donder and Blitzen are there also.

Yea, the fat bird in the red suite lives there with his wife and a bunch of Dwarfs who make toys too. The cookies and milk in the bins are for them to eat.

Cookie, get out of the cookie bin !!!

Now hold on, here we go. It’s a very short trip in the shuttle. What’s that you say? No birdie has ever seen the home of Santa Bird!! I have special permission to take us all there by the Big Bird himself. I have the secret code numbers for the force field that protects and hides it from the rest of the world. Ms BB pushes some colored buttons to put the code in the security computer.

Ms BB pushes some more colored buttons on the Navigation control panel & then pushes the BIG green button. Off the shuttle goes. After it lands and the cargo bay door opens some birds pile out carrying a bail of hay, apples & carrots. They head right to the Raindeer stables to see Rudolph and the rest of the galls and feed them the hay.

Yes, all of Santa’s Raindeer are girls!!! Only girl Raindeer have antlers, well most of them, this time of year. Read about it at this site
Are All of Santa's Reindeer Female? - Urban Legends
urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_santas_reindeer. htm

The rest go inside to see the Big Bird himself. One at a time they get to sit on his lap and tell him what they would like for Christmas. Out comes the milk and cookies.

Cookie, put the cookie back !!!

The two groups change places and it starts all over again. The Raindeer get fed again and Santa Bird gets his lap sat in and gets more cookies and milk. How do you think he got so big!!

Cookie, put the cookies back!!!

Well its time we headed back to our homes so we can get to the sleeping perches early. If you don’t have a fireplace leave the cage door open tonight.

Cookie, you can have a cookie now!!!!!

See Jake, I told you we would get to see Santa Bird!!

Come visit me, Ms BB. Waten for the Easter Chicken !!!, TPB&G., Queen Cori (& Boo boo) in the Castle 4-1-14, Charley Bird, The Bird. Lets play BazBall !!!!!!, Former Queen Snowflake is in the booth & BIG BABYS WEDDING IS ON AGAIN !!!.

  Hi Joey bird
For my BOTM campaign I am going to be using my Star Trek Enterprise shuttlecraft, the Galileo, to take us on far-flung adventures. From the very bottom of Earth’s deepest seas to the far reaches of the Universe we will go.

Dec 23: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every
day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

We are now going to a planet that was a planet but now is not a planet. How dos that happen?? Yes, I mean Pluto. We will be a little over 4 billion miles from our sun. We will be at Warp 8 for about 19 min. Warp 8 is 8 times the speed of light. The speed of light in a vacuum is recognized world wide as 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second). So we will be traveling at, let me cipher this a minute.

(DAD, come help me with this cipheren, I don’t have nearly enough toes!) DAD here, its 1,690,456 ft per second or 91,422,360 miles per minute. Yes, that’s over 91 million. Any birdie want to check the math for me?

Pluto is the smallest of the planets? at only 2274 km in diameter. It is also smaller than many of the other planets moons. Pluto's orbit is highly tilted (17 degrees) relative to the plane of the ecliptic. Pluto rotates clockwise which is the opposite direction of most of the other planets. Venus and Uranus also travel in this direction. This leads some scientists to say that Pluto was a stray moon drifting through space when it was captured by our suns gravity. Even though Pluto is not a planet it dos have 5 moons. Hydra, Kerberos, Styx, Nix & Charon are there names.


Pluto has not yet been visited by a spacecraft because it was not in the path of Voyager 2. Even the Hubble Space Telescope can resolve only the largest features on its surface. A spacecraft called New Horizons was launched in January 2006. If all goes well it should reach Pluto in 2015.

Dos any birdie want to put on a space suit and walk on Pluto? Just don’t bring any fleas back in with you !!!

Its real cold way out here too cause the surface temperature on Pluto varies between about -235 and -210 C (38 to 63 K). Any birdie want to make ice cream?

Well that’s all of the planets and a non-planet that was a planet called Pluto. No we don’t have a planet name Goofy !!!

But we now have Eris that was discovered by US astronomers Mike Brown, Chad Trujillo and David Rabinowitz in 2005. Eris is slightly bigger than Pluto and is in the Kuiper belt of asteroids. Ceres, the largest object in the Kuiper asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter is out there also. These three bodies have come to be called Dwarf Planets.

By the time we get back home it will be dinner/supper time. There is snacks and juice bottles in the storage lockers so help yourselves.

  Hi Joey bird
I am off to a late start getting todays adventure due to Dad haveing a Dr app & doing food shopping. He got me some grapes and oranges. He says the stores and parking lots(whatever they are) are a mad house. I will be back larer.

Its rainy and in the mid 30s here. More rain the next couple days.

Dec. 21: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every

Every birde settle in, it’s a long way out to Uranus. Who giggled?? 2,870,990,000 km (1,783,331,755 miles, Yes that’s in the billions!) to be exact. There are snacks in the storage bins to munch on.

Uranus, the first planet discovered in modern times, was discovered by William Herschel while systematically searching the sky with his telescope on March 13, 1781.

Uranus has been visited by only one spacecraft, Voyager 2 on Jan 24 1986. At the time of Voyager 2's passage, Uranus' South Pole was pointed almost directly at the Sun. This is the only planet in our solar system to be so inclined.

Like other gas planets, Uranus has rings, 13 of them in fact. The brightest is known as the Epsilon ring.

Like Jupiter's rings they are very dark but like Saturn's they are made up of fairly large particles ranging from 10 meters in diameter down to fine dust.
Uranus has 27 named moons ranging in size from 789 km to only 5 km.
Well it’s a long trip back. We all have time for a nap before we are home.

Back to Jupiter to see the rings now. It was believed that Jupiter did not have rings like Saturn but it was found that it has very dark ones. The rings were discovered by Voyager 1 in 1979 on its way through our solar system. Later Voyager 2, the Galileo orbiter and the New Horizons sent back pictures of the ring and moons in February & March 2007.

There are 3 main sections named Halo, Main and Gossamer. There is really only 1 ring with no discernable separation.

Most of the stuff in the rings is dust & very small rocks that come from collisions with the moons. A couple of the moons are within the area of the ring. These moons make notches in the rings as the dust & rocks are attracted by the moons gravity wells

Ok, we have to go now. Back to Earth and a calm atmosphere we can stand up in and breathe without a space suite.

Dec. 17: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every
day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

Let’s take a moment to eat a light snack. We all know about the next planet out from the Sun because we live on it!!! It is called the third rock from the sun.

So we are on our way to Mars today. All girls to the back of the shuttle so the boys can be up front. It is there planet!!

Mars has a diameter of 6,794 km and is much smaller than earth but has a surface area about the same as the land surface of Earth because of the water covering 70% of the Earth.



Mars (Greek: Ares) is the god of War and is known as the red planet.

The first spacecraft to visit Mars was Mariner 4 in 1965. Several others followed including Mars 2, the first spacecraft to land on Mars and the two Viking landers in 1976. Ending a long 20 year hiatus, Mars Pathfinder landed successfully on Mars on 1997 July 4.

In 2004 the Mars Expedition Rovers "Spirit" and "Opportunity" landed on Mars sending back geologic data and many pictures; they were still operating after more than three years on Mars. In 2008, Phoenix landed in the northern plains to search for water. Three Mars orbiters (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Mars Odyssey, and Mars Express) are also currently in operation.

While the average temperature is about 218 K (-55 C, -67 F), Martian surface temperatures range widely from as little as -140 K (-133 C, -207 F) at the winter pole to almost 300 K (+27 C, +80 F) on the dayside during summer.

If you look out the right side you can see Olympus Mons. It is the largest mountain volcano in the Solar System rising 24 km (78,000 ft.) above the surrounding plain. Lets put on space suits & go mountain climbing.

On the left side can be seen Hellas Planitia. This is an impact crater in the Southern Hemisphere over 6 km (3.72 miles) deep and 2000 km (1242.74 miles) in diameter. That was a big rock that hit Mars!!!

We should be glad we are not here during one of this planets dust storms. They can go on for days and have high wind speeds. Scientist mostly agree that there is water (ice) under the two polar caps. And there may be some under the vast central plains.

Hay!!! What was that? Did any other birde see that? Come on, raise your wing if you seen it!! It looked like a green Marten to me.

  Hi Joey bird
Dec. 16: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

Lets get back in the shuttle and strap in. We are off to Venus today. All you boys keep your wings to your selves. Venus IS the planet of love, It is the second planet from the Sun and the sixth largest.


Venus' orbit is the most nearly circular of that of any planet in our system, with an eccentricity of less than 1%. That means it is almost a perfect circular orbit.
The diameter of Venus is 12,103.6 km (7,520440499 miles). That makes it about 650 miles smaller in diameter than Earth but it is 80% denser than Earth. But the gravity is only 90% of earths so you feel a little lighter here.

Venus (Greek: Aphrodite; Babylonian: Ishtar) is the goddess of love and beauty. The planet is so named probably because it is the brightest of the planets known to the ancients. (With a few exceptions, the surface features on Venus are named for female figures.)
Venus has been known since prehistoric times. It is the brightest object in the sky except for the Sun and the Moon.

The first spacecraft to visit Venus was Mariner 2 in 1962. It was subsequently visited by many others (more than 20 in all so far), including Pioneer Venus and the Soviet Venera 7, the first spacecraft to land on another planet, and Venera 9 which returned the first photographs of the surface. The first orbiter, the US spacecraft Magellan produced detailed maps of Venus' surface using radar. ESA's Venus Express is now in orbit.

There are no small craters on Venus. It seems that small meteoroids burn up in Venus' dense atmosphere, which is composed mostly of carbon dioxide and several layers of clouds many kilometers thick composed of sulfuric acid.
Good thing there is a force field around the shuttle to keep it away or it would literally melt the metal.

Craters on Venus seem to come in bunches indicating that large meteoroids that do reach the surface usually break up in the atmosphere.
The pressure of Venus' atmosphere at the surface is 90 times of that on earth.

  Hi Joey
The Snowball fight with Charlie & Cheyenne
Litle Angel adds a little sparkles to her snowball and takes aim. She throws her snowball at Charlie, hitting him in the shoulder sending red and yellow sparkle-snow everywhere.....
Cheyenee's snowball lands with a splat on Little Angel's belly sending snow spraying all over her.
"Gotta ya, Gotta ya" she squeals with delight as Little Angel shakes of the snow.
"Hey I though you were on my side?" L.A. giggles and smiles happily.
"All's far in a snowball fight" Cheyenee tells her with a grin
"Come on, let's go see if we can get some hot cocoa and snacks" Charlie calls from behind a bush.
"OK, greyt idea" the girls call back.
The three friends waddle inside leaving a snowy trail behind them. " OH, OH, we better get that cleaned up before we get in trouble with bringing the outside indoors again" Charlie grabs a cloth to dry up the floor while the two girls gather the snow with a small broom and dust pan.
"This way," Cheyenee takes Little Angel by the wing and leads her towards the kitchen...
Little Angel gives her new friend a hug. "I am so happy we met"
Little Angel climbs up on a chair beside Cheyenee, as Charlie climbs up next to them on his own chair.
"MOOOOOOOOOOOM!" he yells loudly, " Can we pleaseeeeeeeee, have some cookies and hot chocolate?"
Little Angel enjoys the warmth after playing outside in the snow. "Wait, Momma Deb packed us a few treats; apple slices, nutri-berries and birdie bread" Little Angel reaches into her ever present back pack. She takes out all her sparkles and glue bottle, her flash lite, her coconut flakes, and finally brings out her treat pack.
"Don't ask about the other things. Once you are on Bird Channel for a while you'll find out from the others I am the Denis the Menace of the bird world"
The three friends giggle and laugh as Little Angel begins to retell some of her wacky adventures and mischief. Like covering King Spot Le' Blaze-atiel in glitter. He's this months Bird of the Month. Maybe I'll sparkle Ms BB too, Little Angel says, then thinks better of that, since she's her brother SKY's fiancee and a whole lot bigger. It'd take too much sparkles and glitter to do a good job" they all laugh and chuckle thinking of how she'd look all covered in sparkles..............
Come tell me a story and visit my new BC friends, Cheyenne and her frother Charlie -240049. A pair of fun loving Sun Conures.
hugs and glitter
Little Angel

Come visit me, Tell Me a Story, thank you for BOTD.

For my BOTM campaign I am going to be using my Star Trek Enterprise shuttlecraft, the Galileo, to take us on far-flung adventures. From the very bottom of Earth’s deepest seas to the far reaches of the Universe.



Dec. 15: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every
day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

Every birdie get back in the shuttle and strap in. Today we are going to Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun and the eighth largest planet. It dos have a very thin atmosphere consisting of atoms but they get blasted off its surface by the solar wind.

We don’t want to get out of the shuttle here. The temp can be from -270°F when it’s dark to +800°F in the sun, (-168°C to +427°C).
This planet is only 4,880 km in diameter, slightly bigger than the diameter of Earths Moon at 2,160 miles (3,476 km). This also means a 1 lb bird would only weigh 1/3 of a lb. No need to go on a diet!!!

In Roman mythology Mercury is the god of commerce, travel and thievery, the Roman counterpart of the Greek god Hermes, the messenger of the Gods. The planet probably received this name because it moves so quickly across Earth’s sky.


Look over there and you can see MESSENGER. It was sent by NASA in 2004 and it started orbiting Mercury in 2011 after several flybys. Its first flyby in Jan 2008 provided new high quality images of some of the terrain not seen by Marriner 10.

Mercury, like Earth’s Moon is pockmarked with impact craters. Scientists believe the only water on this planet is at its North Pole in the shadows of the big craters there.
Hold on. We are going back to the Earth now. The shuttle lands at the KB and powers down. Dos every birdie have there Earth legs back? Lets go to the food tent at the KB for something to eat. I’m buying!!!

Read more about our space travels at nineplanets.org. This is where I got most of the info for our off Earth trips.

Back to the Moon we go. Yes, the artificial gravity unit has been fixed. Maybe we will see the Man in the Moon today. We are crater looking today. To be able to see the largest craters we will be at an altitude of 2 miles above the Moon.

We will start on the backside of the Moon to see Hertzsprung. It is always dark there so BB turns on the shuttles outside floodlights. That is it coming up on the right side. It is the largest at 591.0 km (1,938,976.38ft) (367.23 miles) wide. That’s as wide as the state of Mo. folks. There are many smaller craters inside of this crater. The walls have also been hit numerous times.

Now over to the side facing our Earth for the Apollo crater. It is 537.0 km wide (333.7 miles). Apollo has many smaller craters inside it also.
Now we will drop down to just a few hundred feet above the Moon to see some of the smallest ones.

Off to the left is Heymans at 50.0 km wide (31 miles). And over there is Evdokimov at 50.0 km wide. There are lots of craters smaller than these two. Some only a foot across. The bigger the crater the bigger the space rock that hit the Moon.

Did you just feel that bump? We just passed over the highest spot on the moon. It is Mons Huygens at 4.7 km (2.9 miles) high and is named after Christian Huygens, a astronomer. No it dos not have snow on it !!

Over there on the right is Mons Hadley at 4.6 km ( 2.8 miles) high and it is the 2nd highest spot and is named after John Hadley, a inventor. Anybirdie want to get out and climb one of these mountains? There are spacesuits in the storage bins so you can make a moon angel in the dust.

  Hi Joey
The Snowball fight with Charlie & Cheyenne
Little Angel adds a little sparkles to her snowball and takes aim. She throws her snowball at Charlie, hitting him in the shoulder sending red and yellow sparkle-snow everywhere.....
Cheyenee's snowball lands with a splat on Little Angel's belly sending snow spraying all over her.
"Gotta ya, Gotta ya" she squeals with delight as Little Angel shakes of the snow.
"Hey I though you were on my side?" L.A. giggles and smiles happily.
"All's fair in a snowball fight" Cheyenee tells her with a grin
"Come on, let's go see if we can get some hot cocoa and snacks" Charlie calls from behind a bush.
"OK, greyt idea" the girls call back.
The three friends waddle inside leaving a snowy trail behind them. " OH, OH, we better get that cleaned up before we get in trouble with bringing the outside indoors again" Charlie grabs a cloth to dry up the floor while the two girls gather the snow with a small broom and dust pan.
"This way," Cheyenee takes Little Angel by the wing and leads her towards the kitchen...
Little Angel gives her new friend a hug. "I am so happy we met"
Little Angel climbs up on a chair beside Cheyenee, as Charlie climbs up next to them on his own chair.
"MOOOOOOOOOOOM!" he yells loudly, " Can we pleaseeeeeeeee, have some cookies and hot chocolate?"
Little Angel enjoys the warmth after playing outside in the snow. "Wait, Momma Deb packed us a few treats; apple slices, nutri-berries and birdie bread" Little Angel reaches into her ever present back pack. She takes out all her sparkles and glue bottle, her flash lite, her coconut flakes, and finally brings out her treat pack.
"Don't ask about the other things. Once you are on Bird Channel for a while you'll find out from the others I am the Denis the Menace of the bird world"
The three friends giggle and laugh as Little Angel begins to retell some of her wacky adventures and mischief. Like covering King Spot Le' Blaze-atiel in glitter. He's this months Bird of the Month. Maybe I'll sparkle Ms BB too, Little Angel says, then thinks better of that, since she's her brother SKY's fiancee and a whole lot bigger. It'd take too much sparkles and glitter to do a good job" they all laugh and chuckle thinking of how she'd look all covered in sparkles..............
Come tell me a story and visit my new BC friends, Cheyenne and her frother Charlie -240049. A pair of fun loving Sun Conures.
hugs and glitter
Little Angel

Come visit me, Tell Me a Story, thank you for BOTD.

  Hello Joey
Are you being a good birdie??

Dec. 13: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.
Only 12 more days till the big bird in the red suit comes!

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

You won’t be needing warm coats or rain coats today. Today we are leaving the confines of the Earth’s gravity. We are headed to the moon. Don’t worry, the shuttle is space worthy. I had Geordi La Forge do a level 1 diagnostic on it last night. There are little bags attached to all the perches. That’s in case the artificial gravity goes out.

Humans have left almost 400,000 pounds of man-made material on the surface including more than 70 vehicles. Any birdie want a ride on one of the rovers they left here?
Humans have brought 382 kg of the Moon back to Earth by Apollo and Luna missions. The Moon rocks are now in collections all over Earth. Why bother!! A bird cant play with a bunch of rocks!!!

Look out the right side windows and you will see the first spacecraft to crash into the Moon. It was the Soviet Luna 2 rocket on Sept. 14th 1959 and it was crashed on purpose. Yes, the Soviets were the first to the moon. But 10 years later, in 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.

On the same side coming up is the crash site of the USA Ranger 4 in 1962. It too was crashed on purpose.
The first spacecraft to soft land was Luna 9, USSR, in 1966. Yep, the Soviets were first again! Surveyor 1, USA, soft landed the same year. Many more craft have crashed or soft landed on the moon. Some did not crash on purpose!!!

Apollo 11 was the first mission to land humans on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
Keep looking and you will see boot prints and wheel tracks. There are 7 American flags scattered around the moon. 6 of these flags are beveled to be still standing on their poles. There is said to be 1 Soviet flag here that was carried by that rocket that crashed here on September 14th, 1959.
There are also golf balls from Alan Shepard's driving practice during Apollo 14, and Alan Bean's silver astronaut pin.
Here we have the Fallen Astronaut statuette left by the crew of Apollo 15 to honor the 3-crew members that died in the Apollo 1 crew module fire on January 27, 1967.
May we have a moment of silence for
Virgil "Gus" Ivan Grissom, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF
Edward Higgins White, II, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF
Roger Bruce Chaffee, Lieutenant Commander, USN
Thank you.

Out the left side windows you can see the descent stages from Apollo 11 LM-5 (Eagle) and Apollo 12 LM-6 (Intrepid).

Apollo astronauts have left numerous reflectors that Scientists can bounce lasers off of to determine the exact distance from the Earth to the Moon. They were left there by the Apollo 11, 14, and 15 astronauts and by the Lunokhod 1 and Lunokhod 2 USSR unmanned missions.
These are what Sheldon, Leonard, Radgish & Howard bounce a laser beam off of on Th

OK, every birdie in the shuttle. Ms BB sets the nav ‘putter for K2 (Yes, that’s its name) It is the second-highest mountain on Earth. Once you have been to the highest this is a let down. (Pun intended).

It is located on the border between Baltistan, Pakistan, and Xinjiang, China. With a peak elevation of 8,611-m (28,251 feet), K2 is also the highest point in Pakistan.
K2 is known as the Savage Mountain because of its extreme difficulty of ascent. It is said that this mountain is harder to climb than Mount Everest.
For every four people who have reached the summit, one has died trying. It is mostly climbed from the Pakistani side because it is much more hazardous to reach the summit from the Chinese side.

The first serious attempt to climb K2 was undertaken in 1902 by Oscar Eckenstein, Aleister Crowley, Jules Jacot-Guillarmod, Heinrich Pfannl, Victor Wessely and Guy Knowles. They did not make it to the top.

An Italian expedition finally succeeded in ascending to the summit of K2 via the Abruzzi Spur on 31 July 1954. The expedition was led by Ardito Desio, and the two climbers who reached the summit were Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni.

Dec. 11: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

Its Hump Day. What better day to go where we are headed!

I hope no birdie is afraid of heights cause we are off to the highest spot on Earth. Tomorrow will be the 2nd highest spot.

1st up, (yea that’s a pun!), we have Mount Everest, at 29,035 feet above sea level.
In 1856, the first published height of Everest, then known as Peak XV, at 29,002 ft (8,840 m) was established by the Great Trigonometric of British India. The 29,029 ft that is the mostly widely height accepted was first determined by an Indian survey in 1955.
There have been many other measurements taken by other countries but they are all around the same. When you get that high what is a couple feet!!!

In 1865, Everest was named after Sir George Everest by the Royal Geographical Society upon a recommendation by Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India.
Although Tibetans had called Everest "Chomolungma" for centuries, Waugh was unaware of this because Tibet and Nepal were closed to foreigners.
There is a lot of conflict over the mountain because the international border between China and Nepal runs across the precise summit point.
If you were hatched at the top what country would you call yours???

The first successful ascent and decent of the mountain was made by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on 29 May, 1953.
219 Humans have gone to the Human Rainbow Bridge since 1922 when the mountain was first tried to be climbed.
Why climb mountains when you can take a helo to the top like Didier Delsalle did

In May 2005, pilot Didier Delsalle of France landed a Eurocopter AS350 B3 helicopter on the summit of Mount Everest. That is the highest a helo has ever flown.

  Hello Joey
Thank you for your support and your votes.

Dec. 10th: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.

Grab the long underwear and those big warm coats again. You are going to need them again today. The shuttle is taking us to the 2 coldest places on Earth today. I have hot drinks in the storage bins for anybirdie who gets cold. And electric blankets also. If you don’t want to get out you don’t have to. Myself, I am stayen in the pilot’s seat.

Verkhoyansk, Russia is our first stop.
According to the 2002 census, Verkhoyansk has 1,434 hardy residents who live in the deep Siberian wilderness. It was founded as a fort in 1638 and serves as a regional hub in cattle breeding and tin and gold mining. Located 1,500 miles south of the North Pole, Verkhoyansk was used to house political exiles between the 1860s and early 20th century.

In January the average temperature is minus 50.4 degrees F and mean monthly temperatures stay below freezing from October through April. In 1892, residents recorded the still all-time low of minus 90 degrees F.

Now back to the shuttle to warm up with some hot drinks and we are off to the 2nd coldest spot on Earth.

Well, here we are in Oymyakon, Russia.
Folks in Oymyakon take exception whenever Verkhoyansk lays claim to being the coldest location pointing out that they recorded a low of minus 90 degrees F on Feb. 6, 1933. Depending on whom you ask, 500 to 800 people call Oymyakon home, a three-day drive from Yakutsk. Schools stay open through minus 52 degrees.

The village is named after a local hot spring, which some residents tap during the winter by breaking through a thick crust of ice rimming the warm water. Anybirdie want to take a dip?? Oymyakon's tourism board has promoted the town as a perfect destination for adventure travelers hungry for a taste of the extreme.

  Hello
Dec. 9th: Ms BBs BOTM campaign

No big bulky coats today!! But grab some suntan lotion!!! Hay Jake, grab your Speedo!!!

This should please the tropical birds. That is because we are going to 2 of the hottest spots on earth today. Get those canteens filled. I am bringing a couple coolers filled with ice and LBB root bear.
We are back at Death Valley, the hottest and also the lowest spot in the USA.
Death Valley is the hottest and driest place in North America because of its lack of surface water and its low relief. It is so frequently the hottest spot in the United States that many tabulations of the highest daily temperatures in the country omit Death Valley as a matter of course.

On July 10, 1913, a record 134 °F (56.7 °C) was measured at the Weather Bureau's observation station at Greenland Ranch (now the site for the Furnace Creek Inn), the highest temperature ever recorded in the world. Daily summer temperatures of 120 °F (49 °C) or greater are common, as well as below freezing nightly temperatures in the winter. July is the hottest month, with an average high of 115 °F (46 °C) and an average low of 88 °F (31 °C). December is the coldest month, with an average high of 65 °F (18 °C) and an average low of 39 °F (4 °C). The record low is 15 °F (-9.4 °C).

Back to the shuttle for cold drinks and a cool down and off to the 2nd hottest place on Earth.

We now find ourselves in Dallol, Ethiopia
You will probley want to stay in the shuttle while we are here.

This scorching hot town in the Afar Depression of Ethiopia holds the record for having the highest average annual temperature ever recorded. From 1960 to 1966, Dallol averaged 94 degrees Fahrenheit (daytime temperatures regularly rose to over 100 degrees). This number is an annual average, meaning that Dallol's temperature dips only moderately throughout the year. There is almost never a break from the heat at any time of the year. Dallol is a ghost town today and even animals refuse to live here.

Sorry I did not get to see you at the castle party last light.

If you want to vote for me for BOTM you have to do it on my page. My number is 11078. Stop by the Kissing Booth & join the fun there.

For my BOTM campaign I am going to be using my Star Trek Enterprise shuttlecraft, the Galileo, to take us on far-flung adventures. From the very bottom of Earth’s deepest seas to the far reaches of the Universe.



Dec. 8th:

Put the rain coats away & grab a nice warm coat.

Today we are going to 2 of the driest places on our planet.
But you better get those warm coats back on. That is because the first one is in Antarctica in an area called the Dry Valleys.
The McMurdo Dry Valleys are a row of snow-free valleys in Antarctica located within Victoria Land west of McMurdo Sound. The region is one of the world’s most extreme deserts, and includes many interesting features including Lake Vida and the Onyx River, Antarctica's longest river.

No rain has fallen in this area for nearly 2 million years. That’s a long time I think.
Lake Bonney is a saline lake situated in the Dry Valleys. It is permanently covered with 3 to 5 meters of ice.
Lake Vanda, is 3 times saltier than the ocean. Everbirdie can float in this lake if you don’t mind being cold.

OK you can take the heavy coats off now. But you might want a jacket because the Atacama Desert can be a little chilly. It is located in
northern Chile and it is the world's second driest region. It is a short hop in the shuttle.

The Atacama is a high (most elevations are over 8000 feet) and cold desert, average temperatures range from 0° to 25° Celsius (32° to 75° F).
Not many people live here. Not many animals either for that matter.
This desert occupies about 105,000 square kilometres (41,000 sq mi) composed mostly of salt lakes (salares), sand, and felsic lava flows towards the Andes.

This desert is rich in metallic mineral resources that humans need such as copper, gold, silver and iron as well as non metallic minerals including important deposits of boron, lithium, sodium nitrate and potassium salts. The Salar de Atacama is a place where bischofite is extracted. (Look it up birds. Its too much to explain here).
