  Hi, Raffikki
Well, we did get a bit more rain yesterday. Still not enough but we'll take what we can get and know it does help the plants and the wildlife somewhat. Hopefully the mountains got some needed snow.

It is hard to work on a large project like an afghan as it never seems like it'll be finished. Always fun to make potholders and washclothes as they are always useful and doesn't take that long to finish. How fun to have taught skinsis to knit and something they can enjoy together.

  Hi Raffikki
I really didn't pay much attention to the weather reports ... just so tired of it. Why did they start naming storms? Silly weather people ... nothing to do?
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.

  Hi Raffi
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.

  Hi Raffi
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.

We are now engaged in another beautiful Monday morning, thank you Lord! It will be another catch up day for dad and us, but I have no idea how he could ever get behind, he is constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve! All of our bird things are done precisely when they should be! We always have fresh water and food is presented to us 24/7, he says we can't run to the fridge, or the sink for a drink whenever we want to like our humans! Nothing special planned for today, but tomorrow will explode with a ton of necessary errands, that must be taken care of, that is how we roll! Please give my love to all in your Monday home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Raffi
We are so done with winter! Mom says she'll take rain any day, as long as it doesn't freeze like it's doing here.
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 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, Willie

No more rain yesterday. Hopefully we get out of the drought but not sure when next rain chance is. Too bad your eggcess rain can't be sent here so you have less.

Think mom is gonna get out her knitting needles and see what yarn is laying around. She hasn't made anything in quite a while and dad is complaining about all the yarn. She did donate a bunch she decided she'll never use but obviously still has lots more.

  HI RAFFI
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.”

Nice new pic! Wow, since we read your blog, mom has decided to call off work today.
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, Willie

back in the fall mom found a small sparrow that had somehow gotten its leg tanged in a bird house filled with our doggies hair mom clips every spring for the birds making nests. there was another sparrow tangled in it also and mom thinks it was trying to help the other one that was dangling by its leg. mom had a heck of a time getting the sparrows leg out and felt the sparrow probably broke it by struggling so much. once she untangled the one sparrows leg the other sparrow became free also and they both quickly flew away before mom could check for any broken legs. today dad had the doggie outside to do her business and called for mom to come out because there was a little bird sitting on the driveway. somehow mom recognized this sparrow as the one dangling by its leg months ago from the bird house. it sat there for a few minutes and looked at mom and then it hobbled away and then flew to a nearby tree. mom knows its leg has never healed but at least it looked in good shape considering its bad leg.

I, Boo Boo, the rare blue bali mynah will be running for BOTM starting tomorrow and would greatly appreciate your votes. i don't have anything planned but will try and entertain you with some interesting facts.

  Hi Raffi
Tomorrow sounds like a real mess, rain and snow! Mom is hoping it's mostly rain as she has to work at the museum.
Mom had a class this morning on handling raptors for medical reasons. She knew most of the stuff already, but they have discontinued grabbing one leg in each hand to move a large bird, as it's dangerous for the bird, who could easily break a bone. Instead, they were taught some upright restraint techniques. Mom thinks they will be better for the birds. When there wasn't a large staff there, mom used to help with some of the medical procedures, but now that they have 4 full time and one part time staff, she thinks those days are gone.
While they were in the middle of class the gas guys came because of the call Jill had placed earlier. People have been smelling gas around the front of the clinic for a couple of days, so they were asked to come check it out. Apparently, due to the age of the pipes and building, there is a huge leak somewhere underground between the building and the road below! It means major repairs, no hot water, no heat, etc. for the next few weeks, until the repairs are done. It's going to be pretty uncomfortable up there. Mom hopes it's an electric dryer that they've been using. If it's a gas dryer, that adds another layer to the problem, because of the large amount of laundry to do every day.
Seems like it's always something. The good news is that it's supposed to be in the 40s by mid week, instead of the extremely low temps we've been having.
I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

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

  LITTLE LUCY SAYS....
Dear Raffi,
Thank you so much for all the votes and visits. I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to blog all week. Mommy’s been very busy. She fears that she'll never be able to keep up this pace on BC. Last Sat. she had a baby shower to attend and lots of cooking to do for bird club. Then Sunday after church, she and Daddy took the food plus Finney, Dolly and Sammy to bird club. I always have to stay home because I’m flighted. Tuesday Mommy had to take Dolly to Toledo for her vet visit. Dolly (Goffin’s cockatoo) has avian bornavirus and needs Depo Lupron injections every other month for her seizures. We have the best avian vet, Dr. Susan Orosz. When she got back she had to pick her car up from the dealership after getting the hail damage repaired from last July! Wed. was her Bible study and lunch and errands. Anyway, that’s how the week went, plus the never ending vacuuming and cleaning up after 7 birdies and the unending chores that all mommies have to do! Today, she’s trying to catch up and of course, I’m helping her. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥
