  Hi Stormy
V4U today. Nothing new here, just been very busy. Along with everything else, the lawn and garden chores have started again, so that adds more to the to-do list. The heater had to go on last night, it was so chilly. The weather here hasn't been too good, lots of rain and even more rain is on the way again. Have a good weekend. From, Marigold.

  Hi, Stormy
So, Shelby was kinda rehomed doggie. Very good of the parronts to take her in and that your dad had time to properly train her. Skinsis hubby sorta rescued their furball as a puppy when she kept turning up at his doorstep hungry, dirty, flea ridden, etc. Turns out she belonged to a friend of the next door neighbors but they denied knowing the puppy. So the vet assued that after a certain amount of days the puppy is considered abandoned and he adopted her. By the time the 'real' owner tried to claim furball it was too late.

Such strange weather there. At least you got some sun. That always makes it look nice out no matter the temps. We remain in the 70s with lots of sunshine and breezes.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hey Stormy !
Dress rehearsal went well yesterday and today is a short afternoon - just practicing curtain calls and getting club t-shirts. Next week my life should be back to normal :)

I hope the weather is too ! Do you know that yesterday during recess it SNOWED ! Not a lot, just a few minutes of flurries, but it was wet, WHITE and cold ! Today is only in the 40's again ! This is just not fair !

And is that weren't enough ? Mom's computer crashed ! Lucky daddy is still sleeping so she can use his till she has time to deal with this new crisis !

Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Hi Stormy
one more thing about spiders……... Spiders

You should always keep a spider
At least one in every room
Give them a little corner
With an offering of food

They'll spin away at night
And they'll hunt for you by day
Keeping your house clean of pest's
In their very special way

So do not go hard with insect spray
When bluebottle's and flies come your way
Remember the little spider's
Who hide themselves away

  Hi, Stormy
Skinsis furball is some kinda terrier mix. Learned basic commands quickly but doesn't heal that great when taking a walk. Then again, mom's childhood dog (Golden) wasn't great at healing either, but her parronts got the dog as an adult as it needed a new home so they didn't train it. Sounds like most furballs act puppy like no matter the age!

Remains low 70s for us and all the rain went north of us. No surprise there. Still, at least some areas are getting the much needed rainfall.

  Hi Stormy !
Yep, it got cold again ! Not snow cold like some of my friends, but into the 40's :( What a bummer . . .

Yesterday, before mom got home I gave dad a test. I squawked for my bath and this time ? He got it right ! ! Good job Dad, you're learning to speak bird !

Tonight it'll be another evening of me and dad. Mom has her dress rehearsal for her drama club and won't even get out of school till 6:30 - she'll surely need quaker therapy by then ! Friday is an easier day - they're only staying till 4:00.

Have a super day and don't forget to try your wing at Name that Tune on page 231616 ! love Cookie

  Hi Stormy
Every day, animals are put into critical danger when their natural habitats are jeopardized by human activity. Together, we can protect the one earth we all rely on.

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me. ?
HAPPY EARTH DAY
love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi, Stormy
Think some furball species generally speaking are smarter than others. Specific individuals could be super smart just like hoomans. However, think if dogs are well trained they can all be wonderful companions and company for their owners. Just need to learn their personalities and give 'em a chance.

No rain for us. Guess the mountains or places north of us will get it. We are all warmish, sunny and breezy. Nicely spring.

Glad your fisters entered the hat contest. We look forward to giving 'em votes.

Locked Out!

Due to poor policy regarding keys [they never give keys to ANY of their staff] , nobody could enter the gym today.
This used to happen a lot - and we have begged Management to give a key to the Trustworthy morning staff. They refuse to do so.
Sadly, Dad has a very busy day with no opportunity to return later today.

Well, our weather guesser was wrong yesterday - it turned out really nice ! 60's and sunshiney :) Hopefully they'll be wrong about today's rain and the rest of the week's chill too !

Mom says her rehearsals are going well - but she still can't wait to be home with me ! She (nor I) are used to her getting home 5:30-6:00 ish ! She's usually home around 3:30 !

  Hi, Stormy
When furball first came to live with us it was after skinsis and her then boyfriend (now husband) had moved back to the area from elsewhere. He went to live with his grandparronts and skinsis and furball came here. Since furball didn't see him as much whenever he would visit she'd be very eggcited and happy.

One year the parronts left and mom's brother was taking care of us. She left eggsplicit instructions on what to feed us, etc. So, when she returns she figured out he'd given us our snacks as our main food! Yikes! Good thing she told him to give us a seed food stick on the second day! Yeah, think even if wings are clipped if a fidsitter isn't confident about getting the flock back into their birdhouses then that wouldn't be good.

Another 70s day for us yesterday. We do hope to see some rain today or tomorrow.

Hope your fisters are entering the derby hat contest. Everybirdie loves to see lots of contestants.

We woke up in the middle of the night to KA-BOOM ! Thunderboomers and flashes of daylight ! Needless to say mom woke up tired ! And today is her humpday - no prep periods and drama club - at least that'll be over next week. The kids are having lots of fun - the play is based on Nikolai Gogal's INSPECTOR GENERAL - only in the wild west ! har har har

If you get the time, go try your wing at NAME THAT TUNE this week - page 231616 - all songs are based on a favorite toy. See if you can figure out what it is !

  Hi, Stormy
We eggspect furball will miss skinsis, hubby and the grand but shouldn't be homesick since lived with the parronts for over a year before moving. She'll probably love being walked at all the old places she used be taken by dad. Skinsis says if she and hubby walk the dog with the baby then furball tends to get a tad agressive (being protective to the baby) so doesn't get out as much as she'd like.

When the parronts would only be gone a night or two mom's brother would come over and feed us, change water and paper, etc. That way we'd still be in our familiar surroundings and still have our basic needs met. Mom's not sure if her brother actually let us out or not but we were always wing clipped at those times so he wouldn't have had to 'chase' us.

If we get 60s in spring that is good too since always sunny so doesn't really feel cold.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

I don't normally like people other than Dad, but Geno is really great. He's my new buddy.

Later Geno and Dad went to see "THE SOUND OF MUSIC" at the Theater. Sadly the place is not 'bird-safe' so I had to stay home. I do love when we see "The Sound of Music" at home, so I can sing along.

  Hi Stormy
Happy Monday ! I guess . . . we have rain all day today - and much cooler temperatures all week, only in the 50's. I guess if mother nature is going to tease us, let it be on a weekend ! On top of all that, it's mom's busiest week of the school year. Her drama club has it's production on Saturday night so they have rehearsals every afternoon ;( That means extra cage time for me - sigh. But at least with her show early this year, I can be in the Derby ! ! ! Silver lining behind every dark cloud !

I hope you have a better day - love Cookie

  Hi, Stormy
Thanks for liking our new pic. We weren't gonna make a new one for the derby but after we looked for hats changed our minds. We're all entered in the contest so hope your flock votes once it starts.

Mom enjoyed shopping with skinsis and the grand. The wedding is in WA state so they'll be gone close to a week. Hopefully furball doesn't think her family is leaving her forever but mom thinks if the doghouse is left behind she might figure it out. The few times the parronts went somewhere longer than overnight they took us (birdhouse and all) to mom's parronts. We loved it there.

Temps went back down to the 70s yesterday, whew! So much better for spring to be in the 70s or even a tad lower is okay.

  Hi Stormy
CONCLUSION ON SPIDERS
Cellar spiders which have super long legs like daddy long legs (which are not spiders) love to eat ants. if you have those tiny tiny little ants running around in your house cellar spiders will eat all of them.
3. Antarctica is the only continent in the world where you will absolutely not find a spider. There are creatures who live there like whales and penguins, but people and spiders stay away from the Antarctica lifestyle. because arthropods like to keep their butts warm, just like humans do.
4. Spiders possess shyness as a personality trait just like people .Spiders, even large ones like tarantulas, are docile in nature. Most spiders are inherently shy critters. They get squished more often than they actually bite humans. Spiders will defend themselves in rare cases, but these buggies mostly get scared and hide in the presence of danger.Because of their shyness they ALMOST NEVER seek out humans to bite. When spiders and humans come in contact, it is usually when they are looking for warmth or just happen to be seeking out food and we bump into each other.
5. Although we have all the eyes that we need, both spiders and humans rely on our other senses.You would think having eight eyes would be all the eyes that you need to see perfectly, but for most spiders that is not the case. Nearly all spiders have eight simple eyes, but having six more peepers than us, doesn’t make their vision any more superior since most arachnids have poor eyesight. On average, over six out of 10 people need to wear glasses or contact lenses, making our visual impairments almost identical to that of spiders. Instead, both spiders and people depend on our other senses, like sound, taste and touch, to help us survive. Nobody’s perfect; not people with two eyes nor arthropods with a whopping eight.

it is a pain to remove all those webs, mainly because they gather so much dust but consider letting spiders be or releasing them back outside the next time you see arachnid amigos in your home. plus i find them quite tasty

  Hi, Stormy
Guess your flock missed what happened to Jenny Lynn and flock. One morning she was there and then later that day she and the flock were gone blogs and all. Many of us asked for her reinstatement and her dad also asked for a review of the comments made that was complained about. Glad that BC responded to your inquiry. We got an email from Jenny Lynn saying she'll be back in May.

Certainly hope BC will be able to move your fisters pages so they are part of where you, Sam, Princess, et al are. Would make it easier if they need to blog to their friends.

Temps here have been in the low 80s for the last couple of days. Should go back down by next week when we have more rain in the forecast.

Mom took skinsis and the grand shopping the other day. Both needed new dresses for a wedding and after awhile did find acceptable one. The bride is a childhood friend of skinsis. The parronts will dogsit when they are gone.

  Hi Stormy
the more spiders we have around the less chance for the need of any poisonous insecticides.for the next 2 days i would like to talk about SPIDERS. my mom and Cori are very afraid of them but would never hurt one .Spiders are one of our most misunderstood creatures. There are movies about them taking over your house, they are depicted in autumn decorations designed to scare people,but spiders are just like us. From our mutual disdain for mosquitoes and some species tend to their young, we have a lot in common with this arachnid . Plus, We need spiders in order to survive.Before you squash that spider that you just spied crawling across your floor, consider these five fascinating facts about these eight-leggers.
1. Mother spiders stay with their babies, just like we do.Almost all spider moms protect their young by creating a safe “blanket” made of silk to cover them with and then guard the sac until hatching. The moms that don’t leave or die before their babies hatch will stay with their wee spiderlings and care for them. The wolf spider, who is known as super-spider-mom, will carry the egg sac with her until her tots hatch. Once the wolf spider babies are born, they climb onto mom’s back and ride along until they are full developed. They survive by eating the yolk from their egg sacs. The wolf spider babies go everywhere that mama goes, including during her hunting. If a baby falls off of her back, she will halt what she’s doing and wait for the little bugger to hop back on. Comb-footed spider mamas also stay with their little ones and feed their offspring with liquid from their mouths. This all sounds a bit like attachment parenting.
2. We have the same archenemy: the mosquito. over one million people die each year due to mosquito-borne illnesses? There are 10 major diseases that are caused by these little buzzers, including Malaria and the West Nile virus. Well, our friend the spider eats those pesky pests. In fact, certain spider species, like the Malaysian jumping spider, get their nutrition solely from mosquitoes. Another jumping spider from Africa is known to eat mosquitoes exclusively, unlike most spiders who eat mosquitoes and other insects. Spiders are also known to stalk mosquitoes like cats

  Hi Stormy
SOME SAD NEWS:
New data from the highly secretive arm of the U.S. Agriculture Department known as Wildlife Services reveals it killed more than 2.7 million animals during fiscal year 2014, including wolves, coyotes, bears, mountain lions, beavers, foxes, eagles and other animals deemed pests by powerful agricultural, livestock and other special interests.Despite increasing calls for reform after the program killed more than 4 million animals in 2013, the latest kill report indicates the reckless slaughter of wildlife continues, including 322 gray wolves, 61,702 coyotes, 580 black bears, 305 mountain lions, 796 bobcats, 454 river otters, 2,930 foxes, three bald eagles, five golden eagles and 22,496 beavers. The program also killed 15,698 black-tailed prairie dogs and destroyed more than 33,309 of their dens.

“It’s sickening to see these staggering numbers and to know that so many of these animals were cut down by aerial snipers, deadly poisons and traps,” said Amy Atwood, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “These acts of brutality are carried out every day, robbing our landscapes of bears, wolves, coyotes and other animals that deserve far better. Wildlife Services does its dirty work far from public view and clearly has no interest in cleaning up its act.”Agency insiders have revealed that the agency kills many more animals than it reports.

Many animals – especially wolves, coyotes and prairie dogs – were targeted and killed on behalf of livestock grazers or other powerful agricultural interests. Wildlife Services does not reveal how many animals were wounded or injured, but not killed.
The new data also show that hundreds animals were killed unintentionally including 390 river otters, as well as hundreds of badgers, black bears, bobcats, coyotes, foxes, jackrabbits, muskrats, raccoons, skunks, opossums, porcupines and 16 pet dogs.

The data show that the federal program has refused to substantially slow its killing despite a growing public outcry, an ongoing investigation by the Agriculture Department’s inspector general, and calls for reform by scientists, members of Congress and nongovernmental organizations.“Wildlife Services continues to thumb its nose at the growing number of Americans demanding an end to business as usual,” said Atwood. “This appalling and completely unnecessary extermination of American wildlife must stop.”Just since 1996 Wildlife Services has shot, poisoned and strangled by snare more than 27 million native animals.

  Hi Stormy
i didn't get to go outside yesterday. mom messed up on the blogs. she was tired and didn't proof read it and somehow included Coris blog in mine. i don't wear a harness and always go outside in my cage and mom sits there with me and reads the paper or a book. good news that Jenny Lynn is allowed back on bird channel but not until May.

the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced a plan to kill 16,000 double-crested cormorants who it believes need to die simply because they eat fish.The Army Corps plan on targeting cormorants on East Sand Island, which is located near the mouth of the Columbia River. The spot is considered an important point for migrating salmon, but it’s also an important nesting site for cormorants and a variety of other birds.

The island is home to the largest double-crested cormorant colony in the west, the largest Brown Pelican roost in the Pacific Northwest and the largest Caspian Tern colony in the world. It has also been designated as an internationally recognized Important Bird Area by both the Audubon Society and the American Bird Conservancy.Bird and wildlife advocates raised serious concerns that the proposal was cruel, wasteful and pointless, and used these birds as scapegoats for problems affecting salmon that are caused by humans – namely dams and habitat loss. The plan could have dire unintended consequences for cormorants who may be doing well on the island, but aren’t thriving elsewhere, which could push them towards needing endangered species protection.

Criticism brought by researchers from Oregon State University who were hired by the Army Corps to study the bird population on the island. They say the Army Corps ignored their findings and isn’t using the best available science in its plan to protect young salmon.Despite widespread opposition from the public and scientific community, the Army Corps announced it has finalized its decision to reduce the number of cormorants targeted, but will still kill nearly 11,000 of them and destroy more than 26,000 of their nests to reduce their numbers by more than half.They still have to get permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to begin, bringing in contractors from the notorious Wildlife Services to start the killing this spring.A lawsuit could shut down the plan and save cormorants from this massive slaughter.The Audubon Society of Portland announced its Board of Directors has voted to sue both the Army Corps and the FWS if permits are granted.

  Hi Stormy !
Happy Tuesday ! We have rain coming in today after the absolutely perfect day yesterday - low 60's and sunshine coming out your ears ! When mom came home she opened all the windows and it felt so good ! Only problem was it blew my cards off the table !

The final marking period began yesterday as well, and that means summertime is coming ! Even our forsythia are ready to pop into yellow ! !

Have a great day - and don't forget to let i5 know we want JennyLynn and flock back ! love Cookie

  Hi Stormy
well it went to 87 today so dad had to put on the a/c. problem was he forgot to take the cover off of it outside but mom got to it before the whole unit burned out. this afternoon mom went to take me outside for some sun. first she had to towel me because i was biting her. then she got the harness on me and when she took me out to the perch i was shaking. mom thinks maybe i felt to exposed because none o the leaves have come out yet. anyway tonight i was fine.

Jenny Lynn has been thrown off of bird channel again. please contact I5 publishing and say you want the flock reinstated

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi, Stormy
We understand the need for rules in a gated communitity to make it safe and look nice for all the residents. That is good to not allow gas powered boats though. Heard the gas caused a lot of pollution on the water and no one wants that. Certainly don't want to risk anyone having a leak and getting the fuel in the water either. Not to mention the smell.

Doubt that a furball would remember to avoid a skunk and is best to use the leash. We imagine not fun for her to have to get clean from being sprayed or the parronts having to live with the smell waiting for it to dissipate.

Temps here went up a tad but with the continued cool breeze is nicely spring.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Flitzer Monday
We had our first Warm Sunny Beautiful Sunday of the year yesterday [Finally].
Dad and his friend walked The Albright-Knox Art Gallery grounds, and Delaware Park.

I got to enjoy some sun, though Dad didn't end up getting me outside - at least it was warm and wonderful streaming into the house.

~Have a great Monday. Wings Up~
