I went to get one and when I did the lady said that when she tried to separate her from her mother, she did not do well. So we brought both home..

  Tessa, the thief.
I weave for a hobby and when I have a project going, my loom folds up so I can put the loom away while I'm not actively working on it. But last night I had it out when Tessa came out for her usual rounds. I must not have been paying attention because this morning I saw something weird at the bottom of the cage. At first I was alarmed, because my first impression was a bright red splotch in her poop, and I thought maybe she was bleeding from somewhere. But on closer inspection I saw it was a fluffy red piece of wool from the loom. Thief!

Here's a vote for you from Dad of All the Birds.

  Hi Sandy
Well, Dr. Squak has been able to come up with some important information, and just know YOU need, and want to hear all about it. Yeah right.

KEEP AWAY ALZHEIMER'S WITH COFFEE.....

According to the results of a large Finnish study, people who drink the most COFFEE during their 30s, 40s, and 50s -- about three to five cups a day --- are 65% less likely to develop Alzheimer's two decades later.

Alzheimer's fighting secrets: Coffee contains a host of antioxidants that work together to protect brain cells and prevent the formation of plaques associated with the disease, says Jean carper, author of 100 Simple Things You Can DO To Prevent Alzheimer's and AGE-RELATED MEMORY LOSS. And it's okay to opt for regular over decaf. A study shows that caffeine prevents dementia-causing damage by reducing the number of toxins in the brain.

This is a Public Service Announcement from the Dr. Squak Institute of useless Information....

  Hi, Sandy,
Gee, we haven't flown by in quite awhile, sorry about that. How are you? Cooled off yet? We cooled off back to a more normal CA summer, but we're sure to have a few more hot days before fall starts.

Our Mom made us some Birdie Cookies (recipe from Hulk), but we haven't decided we like 'em yet or not. Dad thinks we'd like it with some cayenne add to it. We do like hot, but the parronts don't like us wiping our beaks afterwards, heehee.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver. (Hi to Comet and Henry and of course to Angel Misty.)

  HI Sandy
I heard on the news today that the whole country is having a heat wave. Today was about 90 and felt like 95 something like that. They say tomarrow and thursday they are expecting it to reach 100 with a heat index of possibly up to 110 over here. In Chicago i in the news that they closed 24 beaches only leaving open 1 because a huge fog was so bad the lifeguards said they cant see anyone in the water. I didnt even know Chicago has 24 beaches. Iwould of thought they only had 6 beaches. haha. But thats something else the whole country is under a bad heat wave. There are heat watches and heat advisories and heat warnings. Today we were under heat watch which means its gonna get worse. Tomarrow we are under heat warning which means its bad try to stay indoors. I am not sure what advisory means probably means be careful.

Hi i was looking at my list of birdy friends to see who i missed the last week or two. We had this big storm roll in last Monday knocking out power to over 850,000. Well i got excited and was doing video tapes and submitted 3 tapes of Feather during the storm and power outtage. I wish i had softward that could combine them so it would be more like a 4 minute video. All 3 are up if ya want to seem them. The first one is funny you can hear tornado sirens in the background but our power already went out in fact the storm was already dying down after 70 mile per hour winds. Well Feather was hissing up a storm in that one. I bet you are enjoying your cockatiels. Cockatiels are so cute.

  Hi, Sandy,
Haven't flown by in awhile and thought we'd see how you're doing. Saw a blog from Comet to one of the other birdies that it's been hot where you live. Has it cooled off any? We have nice weather, in the 70s. Today, a little cooler even and waiting for the sun to appear.

  HI Sandy and group
Not too much going on here. Bet it is still hot by you. Do you like baths when it gets warm like that? I just finished my summer molt, mom said it looked like she plucks chickens in the front room before I was done. Hehehe. I'm not a big bath fan, usually I'll do my toes in the water bowl and maybe my face a little. Hope the newbies are well. Take care and chirp with you soon...Toby

  Hi Sandy
Hi there you look like Poppy Feathers other friend. Well i have not talked to ya in a while. I was going over all my blogs. I got everybody listed on a paper. 4th of July came and went. Now it feels like the middle of the summer. I think summer goes by quicker than winter. We wait until it gets warm and before we know it its cold again. And it stays cold way too long. Anyways i had a regular 4th of July not doing anything. I thought i would see the fireworks but i never went. It became too late to go because parking if hard to find. Its funner when you go early with a group not just rushing over there with a few family members. Anyways what i did instead of video tape Feather with all the fireworks in the background. Our door was closed because the air was on and i could still hear all the fireworks. Its funny watching Feather stand there all still while theres all this noise from outside. haha. So go check out my video on the video page. Its called "feathers 4th of July".Its over 3 minutes long. Its up write now.

  Hi Sandy
ALL HAIL KING MANGO.....

I ain't got no Castle,
To Call my homeeeeee.
It's back to my cage,
Which is bare as a Bone….

It won't be bare for long, as soon
as the CAG'S Royal Guard's bring back
all my toys.

Now Onto the Serious Side.
FIRST AND FOREMOST: I, departing
Queen Squakie, Would like to Welcome
OUR King, MANGO - 153177 To The
Castle for the month of July 2011.

Proclamation being as setforth by my
Mighty Beak, and Claws of Terror.

1. The Royal Treasury has been secured
and they Keys presented to our newly
Elected, King MANGO. I didn't spend much,
as I used pops' credit cards for my daily
needs.

2. Sorry if you find the booze cabinet
somewhat bare. Those Royal Guard Boys
sure know how to drain a cabinet. I had
to re-stock three times in the first two
weeks alone.

3. A moment of Silence for our departed
friends that have crossed over to the
Rainbow Bridge. While they are gone from
us, they will always be remembered in our
hearts, for all the joy and happiness they
brought into our life.

4. While I would like to THANK EveryBIRDIE
by name, and page number, the list would be
extremely long, and if I forgot anyBirdie, they
might feel hurt. SO ONE big THANK YOU to all.

5. It is hereby ORDERED that an ample supply
of COFFEE ALWAYS be available for those Mom's
that feel the need to play kissey coffee cup, and
partake of the pleasures of Beans.

  Thanks for your flyby
Sandy looks so pretty with her beautiful crown. Great photo! Everything is fine here. We had some new zebra finch fledglings which were doing fine on their own so I separated them out from their cage, banded them and gave them their own cage. Now there are 4 in each cage, so they have a lot more room. I think everyone seems happier with the situation. Other than that, not much going on except ZZ has AGY (avian gastric yeast) and has to get meds twice a day for a month. Guess who gets to give her the meds? I guess that is why I am Dad of all the birds!
Here's a vote for you. Hope all is well.

  Hello Sandy!
I'm happy for you that you've finally gotten some rain and the that temps have cooled down a little. It's almost terrible to tell you this but I've been enjoying the most comfortable spring and early summer weather ever!! Today's the first day I've felt it hit 80° in a long time. Way back in April we had a couple of super hot days; in the 90s. The parronts were thinking that it was going to be one miserable summer but then it cooled back off and hasn't warmed up much since until today. Very unusual for this part of Illinois.

How exciting that you have two new family members! Now you and Henry have other 'Tiels to chatter to. I'm sure the new birds are counting their lucky stars, having been adopted into a wonderful family.

Nice tweetin' with you~
