  Hi Leo
Punkin here. We are so sad to hear your mom's not been feeling well. It's hard on you too with not knowing what to do to help her. Glad you're able to be back on tho.
Well you noticed that we've not been on that much either cause we're getting all ready for the move to NC. We're really upset about what's happening around here. All our stuff is going in boxes and they're stacked all around us! Mom keeps going through things and tossing some here and there to get rid of stuff. Yesterday Kiwi and the other big birds said they were NOT happy cause out the door...after mom took that off...went the washer and in came this big green thing!! later they found out it was a fridge. Kiwi watched mom putting stuff in it. Mom says the good one is going to be sold along with bedroom stuff and the dryer. Washer went super fast. There ARE things that won't leave us at all like computers. Soon we won't have them hooked up tho. What a pain this moving thingy is. And mom says we're all going to be in small cages.. she said they were carriers..and we'll be riding in a car for DAYS!
Ok mom....she says her break is nearly up and she needs the birds back to their cages. Will get back to you asap. Tell your mom to keep getting better.

Punkin here.
Mom says that eventually summer is coming and she thinks that we birds would like these in our water dishes....
Making Blossom Ice Cubes:
Gently rinse your pesticide-free flower blossoms.
Boil water for 2 minutes for all the air trapped in the water to escape. Remove from heat and let the water cool until room temperature. NOTE: This will ensure that the ice cubes are crystal clear.
Place each blossom at the base of each individual compartment within an ice tray. Fill each compartment half full with the cooled boiled water and freeze.
After the water is frozen solid, fill each ice cube compartment the rest of the way to the top with the remaining boiled water. Freeze until ready to use.

Scented Geraniums (Pelargonium species) - The flower flavor generally corresponds to the variety. For example, a lemon-scented geranium would have lemon-scented flowers. They come in fragrances from citrus and spice to fruits and flowers, and usually in colors of pinks and pastels. Sprinkle them over desserts and in refreshing drinks or freeze in ice cubes.

NOTE: Citronelle variety may not be edible.

  Hi Leo
Punkin here this lovely Friday 13th. I'm on a quest to make BOTM and would love to have your help voting for me. We've been outside most of the day and loving it!
Here's todays flowers to eat......

Bee Balm (Monarda didyma) - Also called Wild Bergamot, Wild Oswego Tea, Horsemint, Monarda. Wild bee balm tastes like oregano and mint. The taste of bee balm is reminiscent of citrus with soft mingling of lemon and orange. The red flowers have a minty flavor. Any place you use oregano, you can use bee balm blossoms. The leaves and flower petals can also be used in both fruit and regular salads. The leaves taste like the main ingredient in Earl Gray Tea and can be used as a substitute.

Dill (Anethum) - Tangy; like their leaves, but stronger. Use yellow dill flowers as you would the herb to season hot or cold soups, seafood, dressings, and dips. The seeds are used in pickling and baking.

We like the dill leaves.

  Hi Leo
I'm out and about stomping on the vote button. In a few minutes when the human is done playing "puter", I get to go outdoors in the flight room to play for a few hours until it gets to hot, and then it's back inside to the bird room. I really like it outdoors, I get to fly around, and see people walking by my house, and I even YELL hello to them. sometime it scares some of them, especially the one's that don't know I'm out. A few even stop to talk to me. I like that... See ya again, stop by and visit me.

  HI Leo
This is my fourth home. My first family bought me from the breeders and only had me for two years and then they had relatives with children move in with them and the children used to tease and torture me. Instead of getting rid of the children, or making sure the children left me alone, they chose to give me up. They sold me to a lady who owns a bird store near York Pa, and by then I was afraid of everything. I was so fearful that the nice lady at the bird store didnt think it was right to try and sell me and she really didnt have the time to work with me so she gave me to Mums friend Michelle who does rescue. Michelle had me for five years and helped me get over some of my fears, but I still bit her and didnt like to leave my cage at all. I had a wonderful home with Michelle, but she has so many birds that she didnt have much one on one time for me. Mum went to visit once and fell in love with my cockatoo brother Corona, who is another bird who has major biting and screaming issues, but for some reason took to Mum. When Mum was visiting Corona, I was in the corner of my cage trying to get closer to her. Usually I would run and hide from strangers, but like Corona, I sort of liked Mum, so Michelle said that if Mum wanted both of us she could take us. Mum really didnt want any more birds, but couldnt resist us. Now I love to come out of my cage, I am not afraid of anything at all anymore, never bite Mum, and even tolerate the grandchildren, which really suprises Mum after what I went through with children from my first family. Mum doesnt let the grandaughters go near my cage, but when I am out on my stand, they talk to me and I am not afraid of them and dont try and bite.Mum cant believe how quickly I learn new things.She can teach me something one day and I am doing it the next. None of her other birds, not even Gabby the Grey, learn as quickly as I do. It sounds like you have a wonderful home also. Does your Mum put clothes on you? The only thing Mum cant get me to do is wear those stupid clothes. She says maybe I never will, but she still tries. Gotta fly, talk to you soon, ZaZu

  Hi Leo
Thanks for the vote, I am sending one back to you. it is nice to see another Severe. The only other Severe's Num and I ever see are on BC. For some reason we dont seem to be very popular and I dont know why. Mum thinks I am just a wonderful guy, even though I wont let her put clothes on me yet.All the other birds in my flock will wear these funny little outfits, but not me. Mum keeps trying though and she thinks someday I will join the rest of them looking foolish in their bunny costumes and tuxedoes. Mum, you are so wrong! You will never see me dressed as a bunny!Anyway, other than the clothing issue, Mum thinks I am a great guy. I am sweet, affectionate, and so smart. I see you are from N. Versalles. Mum used to live in the Pittsburgh and Greensburg areas.She used to go to this pizza place called Vincents Pizza that she thought was in N.Versalles, but she says that was a long time ago so she could be wrong. Whereever Vincents was, they sure had good pizza. pizza was the first treat Mum ever gave me. I was sort of mean when I first joined my flock until Mum introduced me to pizza. Now Mum always makes sure she has time set aside for just her and I to sit together and enjoy a snack of some kind away from the other birds. Well gotta go, but nice meeting you and heres a vote, ZaZu

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME REACH 2,000 VOTES! I am SO happy to have finally reached this number of votes. THANK YOU! Whether you’ve stomped a milestone vote or not, you are really helping me in this BOTM run and I am so happy! Thanks to you and all of my other friends, I got 500 votes in 13 days! That’s less than two weeks!!

I think that you’ll be happy to hear these 2 pieces of news I have for you! Number one is that, I found a lot more bird facts yesterday, so you will have TWO bird facts a day and maybe a record! And number two is... TOMORROW (3/16) is my 6th HATCHDAY!!! Whoo hooo! I’m so excited.

~The flightless Takahe of New Zealand is extremely endangered, with an estimated number of 40 pairs left.
~Since the 1800's, 103 bird species have become extinct in the world. The main reason is man's invasion of their territory.

Wow, those two facts sure are eye-openers, aren’t they? I mean, us birds can’t do anything, but to know how our birdie cousins are failing out in the wild... where our ANCESTORS were, kind of makes you think.

Thank you SO much if you went and visited my Uncle Maximillian, Mom Sweetpepper or Auntie Kacey yesterday. They all really appreciated the visits, so thank you so much! And thank you again for helping me get two thousand votes. TWO THOUSAND VOTES! Yeah, it doesn’t sound like much after what Poirot accomplished, but it’s a lot to me! Thank you.

Hoorah! And I’m back on BC. Boy, I’ve missed you guys! Thank you so much for helping me reach 1,900, Popeye #40498 left the Milestone vote. Thank you so much for leaving me votes, despite my absence! Oh, and please congratulate my good friend Poirot (8093) on making it to the 10 grand club! Good job, Poirot!

I have a prayer request. Mama’s knows a man named David that has been in her church’s prayer list for a long time, and it has been because of his struggle to lose weight. Well, last week, he got into a car accident and broke all of the bones in the left side of his body, collapsing part of his lungs. He is a pastor at a Baptist church, and they don’t think that he’ll be able to go back to work for 2 whole years. Please keep this poor man in your prayers! Thank you so much.

(12/11) Grackles can imitate human speech better than parrots.
(13/11) Recently in England, an egg-laying hen had a spontaneous sex-change., and turned into a cockerel. To the surprise of it’s owner, the hen grew (a) longer comb, wattles and long tail feathers, and started to crow. Experts say the very rare condition was caused by a significant rise of testosterone when one of the hen’s ovaries malfunctioned.
