LaLo and I have been pals for years, and when Flash needed a home, and due to my failing health, I thought LaLo would be better off living at the McFlock home, but l missed her from the start and Flash was determined not to be my friend! When it was obvious that he and Denise were very compatible, we talked it over and decided to make the swap! Flash is Happy, and I got my cuddle bug back, everybody is a winner! The major downside is, for the first time in 17 years, I will not be able to experience the true love of a Cockatoo, and yes, I will miss Flash but the swap was for him, not me...

Love from Ms LaLo, Chuck, & the Flash

Hi! My name is Ms LaLo-Waiting for the County Fair, such fun!

I am a Congo African Grey from Rock Island, IL.

Kissy face, daddy's girl, and daddy's chin candy...

12 years old   F

Congo African Grey

Broccoli, corn on the cob,aunt Betty's birdie bread, sweet potatoes plain, unsalted peanuts, pasta, and scrambled eggs...

On the perch on the on the door of Jenny's old cage and on then cage ad play gym Flash left behind! She has a multitude of choices where to play, but she like to always be able to see me, she is never in a cage

She stays separated from Jen, but they get along better now...for which I am thankful…

Dad's crazy, I do no like the green witch...

He loves me to pieces, and I have a huge free roaming play area, and lots of cardboard to chew on, and I do that all day long! My daddy provides for me a wonderful life, and for that, I love him dearly...

She is by far the sweetest and lovingest bird that has ever come into our home, I missed her a lot during the 6 months she stayed at aunt Denise's home, and if you pick her up, she has to kiss you, I love it... Much like my Angel Christy, she doesn't talk, but if you knew her, you would know she don't have to, to convey her love and happiness....

I love, & love to be loved, and I give and get plenty of both, live life to the fullest, time is our most precious commodity, don't waste any of it....

  Hello Lady Lalo!
What do you know for this day? I know I'm having a BLAST on my rope knot that used to be a perch until I killed it & now it just dangles down from that white thing that holds it to the cage! I've been making mounds of threads on the bottom of my cage, seed guard, and Mom's kitchen floor. Lots of pretty colors.....everywhere!!! heehee! Mom just sighs when she looks at me. But I'm all into what I'm working on. Which is the whole thing being dismantled into a nice big heaping pile of threads!

I think Mom's coming over with some snacks! Isn't that thoughtful! I have been working very hard today. Squawk later with ya! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hello Lalo! Sam Props Himself On Her Cage Door...
....Yep, I've already been here & talked about last year's baseball season. Had a greyt time reminiscing with you. Then I proceeded to tell you what a huge surprise that befell Mom Saturday evening, late, that her son & his children were coming over to let Mom & her mate have their very first birthday celebration with the youngest one, Joel. He turned 4. They were going to be over on Monday morning & stay the day. Sunday they had to jump out of bed running when their feet hit the floor because Mom had nothing prepared for a 4 year old's birthday party!! They were out like a whirlwind! Monday, the kids arrived more around noonish but Mom was so happy that she was hiding the tears that she couldn't help to shed. It was a loud, active, crazy day but Mom loved every minute of it. Lots of hugs & kisses & goodbyes, and soon Mom & her mate were just us again. They were wore out but in a good way! It took Mom 2 days to get things straightened back up even though she was very tired, she smiled the whole time she cleaned up. Humans are truly funny creatures. I don't think I'll ever figure them out.

The BC is always messing us up, especially when we come here to your page. I don't understand it at all but it's just messed up. It ate my blog for you, again, and Mom's too old to remember how she just wrote it! It's like pouring a glass of water, she can't make it exactly the same way twice without seeing it. It's always better the first time she writes it. Sorry about that.

Hugs to all & big "howdy" to your good Poppa, SamIAm

Too late to re-instate the pages, can't be done according to the powers that be. But for the time being, I will be here if for no other reason than to be a thorn in some people sides. You know what a stubborn old man can be like, and once he makes up his mind, you'd rather fight a pack of pit bulls than argue with pops. Only way to add the departed is to put them on my page, and I don't like to share. So life goes on...

  Hey There Ms. Lalo!!
I want you to know Mom came by last night to leave a blog for you to read this morning & the blasted BC wouldn't take it !!! So she C/P and kept it for this later morning time. Maybe it won't be so "picky" & allow her to post it. It wasn't anything too long or all that important. It is just frustrating to try to say "hello" and then it just sits there & times out. Here it comes (since nothing has really transpired here of being noteworthy since then!)

Lots of crazy rain hit a friend of Mom's down there in Naples, Florida. Rained like 6 inches in one hour!! Filled up parking lots & streets & well, instead of being sea level, it was mostly underwater! Mom's friend really does have an airboat & he actually used it to help his family & neighbors who were stuck & needing rescue. Some had heart problems & well, with the weather looking like it was, they began to have problems right then! Can you imagine having to go to the ER via airboat?? Sheesh! I hope Florida doesn't end up sinking into the sea! We have lots of good friends down there, human & feathered, too.

How has the newbie been coming along? I hope he begins to love it there very soon. He sure has some nice colors on his noggin'. Not as nice as your pretty red feathers, Ms. Lalo, but they are striking. I hope you two become greyt friends.

Hugs for all, SamIAm

  Hi Lalo
NEW YORK (AP) — Russian hackers have stolen 1.2 billion user names and passwords in a series of Internet heists affecting 420,000 websites, according to a report published Tuesday.

The thievery was described in a New York Times story based on the findings of Hold Security, a Milwaukee firm that has a history of uncovering online security breaches.

Hold Security didn't immediately respond to inquiries from The Associated Press.

The identities of the websites that were broken into weren't identified by the Times, which cited nondisclosure agreements that required Hold Security to keep some information confidential.

The reported break-ins are the latest incidents to raise doubts about the security measures that both big and small companies use to protect people's information online.

Security experts believe hackers will continue breaking into computer networks unless companies become more vigilant.

"Companies that rely on usernames and passwords have to develop a sense of urgency about changing this," Avivah Litan, a security analyst at the research firm Gartner told the Times.

Retailer Target Corp. is still struggling to win back its shoppers' trust after hackers believed to be attacking from Eastern Europe stole 40 million credit card numbers and 70 million addresses, phone numbers and other personal information last winter.

Alex Holden, the founder and chief information security officer of Hold Security, told the Times that most of the sites hit by the Russian hackers are still vulnerable to further break-ins. Besides filching 1.2 billion online passwords, the hackers also have amassed 500 million email addresses that could help them engineer other crimes, according to Hold Security.

So, far little of the information stolen in the wave of attacks appears to have been sold to other online crooks, according to the Times. Instead, the information is being used to send marketing pitches, schemes and other junk messages on social networks on Twitter, the newspaper said.

The breadth of these break-ins should serve as a chilling reminder of the skullduggery that has been going undetected on the Internet for years, said John Prisco, CEO of another security firm, Triumfant.

"This issue reminds me of an iceberg, where 90 percent of it is actually underwater," Prisco said in an emailed statement. "That's what is going on here... So many cyber breaches today are not actually reported, often times because companies are losing information and they are not even aware of it."

  Hello Miss Lalo!
Well, look at you! You look lovely with your face painting! I have to admit, Aunt Denise is a true arteest! You really look very nice.

Mom's still recouping from some dental surgery that they did their final touches on her this past Tuesday. I'm afraid that "touch" felt more like sledge hammers & jack hammers to her jaw bone. Poor old gal, that just woke up her lupus & it had to kick her around ever since. She lets me come out to play but all she does is offer me a toy to play with. Our games of "chase" & "tag, you're it" will have to be on another day. I still like her handing me the toys. I will hold one for about half a minute, then toss it. Mom just reaches into the toy tote & hands me something else. When about a dozen are on the floor, she picks them all up & we start again. It seems to give her a purpose so I let her think that I'm having fun.

The last week sure has been rainy. It even turned much cooler, too! We only reached 72 degrees today. That's unheard of in the month of August in NC! Wonky weather guessers act like it's all normal. Sheesh! Of course, next weekend the stove temperatures are suppose to take over. Well, it is after all, August! Hope your August has started out greyt! Hugs to all & a big 'howdy' to your good Poppa, SamIAm

LOVE your face painting. Suits you real good Lalo. Mom could not let me blog for a few days. She was tied up with LilBit but things are settled down now, and I got my time back. I must tell you a story about Pepper, talk about coughing. years back when my skin sister was living with us, Pepper had asthma according to Ashley. He was wheezing and it scared her so much that Mom called the vet right away. They all went in the car, Ashley holding the carrier and Mom driving. Once there, they were called into the room, and no sooner than the carrier door was opened, Pepper stepped up on the door, and the show began. He flew up out of reach, but when Mom called, he did come down. There was the usual exam... weight, etc, and he checked in fine. Then came the toweling and the stethoscope. no sooner than the vet started to put that thing on his ears, Pepper conveniently cleared his throat and started coughing. The vet looked at Mom and said nothing the first time. He tried to hear Pepper's heart and breathing and again Pepper coughed. Well, this went on and Mom was asked to which acting school Pepper attended. They were all laughing at this point. Pepper was NOT wheezing, but in fact imitating Mom's asthma and cough. It was absolutely hilarious, and they left the clinic, Pepper being declared having a clean bill of health. By the way - the clinic was an hour drive from home. LOL

You know by today's standards none of us would ever have made it.

HIGH SCHOOL -- 1957 vs. 2014

Scenario 5:

Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.

1957 - Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock.

2014 - The police are called and Mark is expelled from school for drug violations. His car is then searched for drugs and weapons.

Scenario 6:

Pedro fails high school English.

1957 - Pedro goes to summer school, passes English and goes to college.

2014 - Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English is then banned from core curriculum. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English.
