We met Sam at a Breeder's house.We were looking for a bird and she told us pick whatever one that would like. He was the smallest and had a very short tail at that time. Told the lady that is one and we brought him home..

Whatever you put in the cage for him to eat

His favorite spot is on the swing or at the Mirror.

Do not stick you finger in the cage because it makes be upset.

Mom gives me all kinds of treats everyday and talks to me whenever she passes the cage.

He needs to be where ever his brothers is. If his brother is drinking or eating, etc..

Make sure I am at the water dish or the food dish first after Mom fills them up..

  Hi Sam
we went to the wedding also but about 3 hours early as mom just dropped us off.

yesterday our mom was gone all day because she took the g-son to the community township festival where they had lots of fun things for kids to do. g-son built a truck out of wooden blocks at one booth and then won a 5 foot tall inflatable alien at another booth. then mom tried to dunk our township commissioner in the dunking booth but couldn't do it. they had a petting zoo full of ravenous goats, sheep and pigs so mom went in to feed them and soon found out why no one else went in since all the animals jumped up on her vying for the food. then they left the festival and went to game stop where mom bought g-son a video game for his birthday. next out to eat and then back to the festival for fireworks. by the time mom got g-son home and and then came home it was really late so no blogging for us yesterday.

love Cori

HAPPY TGIF DAY

WELL LAW SUITS ARE PENDING BECAUSE OF GROUND WATER CONTAMINATION BY RANGE RESOURCES (one of the many fracking companies). they have agreed to pay 4.15 million in fines for violations and contamination of our drinking water.. they are still using the outdated open water containment of the poisonous waters allowing leakage and access to wildlife. at least the other FRACKING Compaines have switched to above ground storage tanks and are building safer fracking sites. no fracking should be allowed by them until they update and comply. it seems it is easier to pay the 4.15 million in fines rather than do anything about their leakage. a big THANKS to our esteemed governor for giving all these fracking companies the green light to come into our lands and poison everything. (we are being sarcastic)

HAPPY HUMPDAY

TODAY WAS A FUN DAY BECAUSE WE GOT TO MEET MS FALCO BEAK TO BEAK AFTER HER VET APPOINTMENT. SHE SURE IS ONE PRETTY GIRL. AFTER FALCO AND HER MOM LEFT MOM WAS DEBATING WETHER SHE SHOULD TAKE DOWN THE HUMINGBIRD FEEDERS SINCE WE HAVENT SEEN ANY HUMMERS FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS. WELL ABOUT 4 MINUTES AFTER FALCO LEFT A LITTLE HUMMINGBIRD SHOWED UP AT ONE OF THE FEEDERS. THE NECTAR WAS PRETTY OLD SO MOM WAS SCRAMBLING LIKE CRAZY TO CLEAN THE FEEDER AND REFILL IT SO THE LITTLE HUMMER WOULD GET A FRESH MEAL. THE MALE HUMMERS ALL WENT SOUTH A LONG TIME AGO BECAUSE THEY ONLY COME NORTH FOR ONE REASON AND AFTER THEY HAVE DONE THEIR DEED AND EATEN THEIR FILL OF BUGS AND NECTAR THEY HAVE NO MORE REASON TO STAY. THE ONLY ONES LEFT AT THIS POINT ARE YOUNG ONES AND SOME STRAGGLER FEMALES FROM THE NORTH. MOM WILL MAKE ONE MORE BATCH OF NECTAR IN CASE ANY MORE SHOW UP IN THE ENSUING WEEKS. IN THE PAST 1 OR 2 HUMMERS HAVE SHOWN UP AT THE END OF OCTOBER AND WE WANT THEM STRONG FOR THEIR LONG FLIGHT SOUTH

we always worried about how the bunnies survive during winter and it turns out they chew bark off of trees and shrubs. mom has cement bunny statues scattered throughout the yard and wonders if the little bunny likes them. also we are not seeing any hawks around and suddenly there is more bird activity in the yard. wonder if the hawks just stopped off here for a few days and are migrating south now.

Breaking news: A massive pesticide company has just asked the U.S. government to increase the legal limit for its bee-killing pesticides by 4000%.

That’s right. Four. Thousand. Percent.

Bees are already facing a massive global die-off. This could be a death sentence for millions more bees. Bees fill a crucial ecological role as pollinators and are essential for agriculture, and are responsible for every third bite of food we eat. In other words: No bees, no farms. No farms, no food.

because of this we have come to the conclusion that all CEO's of chemical companies are space aliens intent on the annihilation of all life on earth as we know it. just watch any alien space movie and you will see we are right!

  Hi Sam
What happens when weeds and insects evolve into superweeds and superbugs? And refuse to die when doused with Monsanto’s toxic poisons?Enter Monsanto’s dump “More On” Strategy. More herbicides. More insecticides. Each one more toxic than the next.

Consumers hold the key to ending Monsanto’s “Moron Strategy.”
We do it by forcing states to pass mandatory GMO labeling laws. Which in turn will force Big Food to replace GMO ingredients with non-GMO alternatives.

It isn’t just Monsanto that’s escalating the “Moron Strategy.”
Dow’s new GMO corn and soy varieties are engineered to withstand massive amounts of a new herbicide concocted from a combination of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, and 2,4-D, one of the chemicals used in the deadly Vietnam-era “Agent Orange” herbicide.

The EPA has already approved the new “Deadly Duo” herbicide. And the USDA—over the objections of more than 50 members of Congress and hundreds of thousands of citizens—is expected any day now to approve the crops it will be sprayed on.

Why approve this new “Deadly Duo?” Because the millions of pounds of glyphosate and 2,4-D herbicides already being sprayed on GMO crops aren’t working anymore.

It would be great if the FDA and USDA would protect consumers from the madness of Monsanto’s “Moron” Strategy.But instead, our government agencies are intent on protecting only one thing: "CORPORATE PROFITS"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact last year, the FDA actually raised the limit of glyphosate residue allowed on your fruits and vegetables—despite several new studies exposing glyphosate’s toxicity. According to one of those studies, glyphosate is “insidious and manifests slowly over time, as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body… it may in fact be the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment.”

Only a moron would want to use more, not less, of the “most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment,” right?

what boggles our minds is the fact that even with ll the information and facts regarding how dangerous all these chemicals are today the chemical companies like dow , bayer and monsanto go out of their way to keep making stronger and more toxic chemicals . one of the gas and oil companies sent mom a survey on how much she liked their new commercial on gas and oil exploration in the amazon and moms answer to the survey was all she detected was the glee in the spokesman's/models eye as they thought of all the money that would be made by exxon, bp, etc as they deforest and frack and destroy the rain forests. needless to say they haven't sent mom any there surveys to complete.

  Hi Sam
Are Pesticides Lowering Our Intelligence?
fascinating research originating from Harvard’s School of Public Health. Published in Lancet Neurology, assessed five chemicals and metals known as “neurotoxicants” which are substances that are toxic to the brain and nervous system. The researchers analyzed the effects of a group of pesticides known as “organophosphates.”

After assessing the effects of typical organophosphate exposure in children aged 0 to 5, the Harvard researchers found that this class of pesticides caused a collective drop in IQ of 16,899,488 points. Because brain functions develop sequentially, the full effects of early neurotoxic damage might not become apparent until school age or beyond.

Because early childhood exposure to pesticides through playing on sprayed lawns and eating produce containing the toxins can result in a loss of cognitive skills, the exposure reduces these children’s intellectual and economic potential. the health implications to children (and potentially adults as well, since this study only explored the effects on children) is of serious concern.

After assessing the full economic impact, the scientists estimated that for each loss of one IQ point a person‘s estimated lifetime earnings capacity also dropped by USD $18,000 or €12,000.

The journal Environmental Health Perspectives established a link between pesticide exposures and autism.

With the mounting evidence of the health, social, environmental, and economic implications of our continued use of toxic pesticides, isn’t it time for a total ban of these toxic substances?

today our yard was filled with plumes of toxic fumes as the sewage truck roared away filling the old sewage lines with resin. it came at 7am and never stopped until 5.30pm. the workers assured mom that none of us would have any adverse affects from this. the fumes were so bad mom could actually taste it. the workers themselves didn't appear very smart as they didn't even have one face masks. at exactly 5:30 pm all toilets were allowed to be flushed

our sewage bill increased from $50 a month to $150. they have been working all summer in our area to update the sewage lines and we are paying the cost. tomorrow a note was posted on our door they will be working on our street and we will have no water, do not flush toilets and when the water comes back on it will smell like resin. that can't be good. they also said keep your windows open when you turn the water back on. mom is very worried about our flock.

  Hi Sam
thought you might find this interesting about ANIMAL SABOTEURS
See that bushy-tailed rodent chattering in the tree outside your house? It could be preparing to take down the electric grid.

Last year around Nashville, Tennessee, more power outages--2,257--were caused by squirrels and other creatures sharpening their teeth than by bad weather. This spring, a squirrel knocked out power for 23,000 people in California's Marin County, and last year one took out the water system in Tampa, Florida. Saboteur squirrels have turned out the lights at a sewage treatment plant, an airport, a hospital, a university, even a baseball game.

Animals monkey-wrench by chewing, touching wires together, or tripping switches. They almost always die in the process. But there are plenty of replacements. This spring, a raccoon snuffed out the lights for 5,700 households in Opelousas, Louisiana. In Holton, Kansas, snakes in a substation knocked out power citywide twice in five days.

"Wild animals are anywhere and everywhere and you can't predict what they will do In March, a rogue rat shorted out the cooling system at Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

The greatest havoc, is wrought by crazy ants, who have colonized electrical appliances across the Southeast, shorting out burglar alarms, computers, and televisions. When their wriggling bodies bridge the circuit and they electrocute themselves, they send out a pheromone, calling in reinforcements. In a Waco, Texas, apartment complex, crazy ants took out 90 of the building's 150 air-conditioning units.

They're not doing it on purpose, of course. But if animals were trying to destroy civilization, this is how they'd go about it.

we had a beautiful day today. dad fertilized the lawn and then put the sprinkles on to get the fertilizer into the soil. mom took me outside in my harness and held me near the sprinkler which goes back and forth. as the first wave of water started coming down i got very scared and tried to fly away and plopped too the ground. mom then picked me up and held me tighter so when the next wave of water came it landed on me. i kind of liked it. i dried off immediately because the sun was so bright.

mom knows a lot of the things are very upsetting to hear about but by not standing up for what you believe in many more bad things will occur. mom is a product of the 60's.
the new fad for moms with children is (Get Ready) allow your children to actually play on their own and make their own friends and ease up on organized playdates. earth shattering isn't it?

11 Animals More Likely To Kill You Than Sharks . Sharks are kinda scary. In the water they’re faster than us, can appear from what seems like out of nowhere in an instant, and pack a pretty solid bite. It’s easy to get nervous when you’re in the dark ocean and unsure of who is swimming by with a toothy grin. But sharks aren’t the animals you should be most afraid of. Here are some that are much more likely to cause your demise.if you’re swimming with bull sharks, you’re more likely to die by shark attack at that moment than a cow. But most of us aren’t in the water with sharks as often as we find ourselves next to a cow on a visit to a farm, or at a petting zoo. And we certainly are around bees and ants a whole lot more often than sharks. But if you find yourself swimming in the ocean — or even some rivers — you’re probably nearer to sharks than you realize.f
Mosquitoes:655,000 people killed each year, primarily in Africa, through the little buggers spreading malaria left and right.
Hippos:2,900 people are killed by these mammals annually in Africa. That roly-poly exterior is just to lure you in.
Deer:130 people killed across the US by deer, almost exclusively because they hit them with their cars. That saying “a deer in the headlights” came about for a reason.
Bees:53 people die each year in the US because of an allergic reaction from being stung.
Dogs:30-35 people are killed each year in the US. Fido isn’t always your best friend.
Ants:20-50 people are killed each year in Africa from ants. They may be small but dozens, hundreds, or even thousands stinging you really adds up.
Jellyfish:20-40 people per year die in the Philippines alone, from the anaphylaxis caused by the stings.
Cows:22 people are killed in the US every year from these seemingly docile creatures. They’re fun to pet, but getting kicked in the head… not as fun.
Horses:20 people die each year thanks to our equine friends.
Spiders:6.5 people die in the US every year from spider bites.
Rattlesnakes:5.5 people die from rattlesnake bites each year in the US, which isn’t a whole lot considering how common they are in popular hiking and camping areas.
Sharks:1 person is killed each year in the US and fewer than 6 worldwide are killed by sharks. From 2006 to 2010, there were just three fatalities from shark attacks in the US.

  Hi Sam
your mom must work very fast to get all those blankets made so quickly and pillows to match on top of that. a beautiful day today.

Odds are, you’ve never tried to imagine the enormity of a whale’s excrement. Imagine how substantial, and messy, the “flocculent fecal plumes” of these incredibly large mammals can be. scientists are now considering that whale poop can help save our acidifying oceans.

How can a couple of whale turds make an impact? The nutritious, krill-dense waste substance is consumed by vast amounts of plankton, who, in turn, take acidifying carbon out of the ocean waters when they photosynthesize as well as when they die and sink to the ocean floor. Whale poop pretty much fertilizes the photosynthesizers of the ocean, and when the whales die, their massive carcasses also sink to the floor with tons of CO2 trapped within. Some scientists estimate that even the small current whale population could be displacing some 400,000 tons of CO2 every year.

Where whales are still somewhat numerous — like the Southern Ocean — the whale pump, as it’s known, spreads nitrogen and binds up carbon in an environmentally substantial way. However, with the severe decline of whales worldwide due to commercial over-hunting — along with the exponentially worsening acidification of our oceans — the marine ecosystem has suffered a steep tip in its delicate balance. Whales are the guardians of our precious oceans, and their poaching only speeds up the impending acidification. Certainly, whales may not be able to singlehandedly solve the problem of our dying oceans, but these giant mammals have a significant impact on CO2 binding that could potentially retard the process if present in great enough numbers.
To state it blatantly: more whales, more whale poop, more healthy photosynthesizing plankton, less carbon. Let’s protect the whales.

  Hi Sam
sunbathing is a fairly common activity for many bird species, cormorants among them. sunbathing serves a couple of important roles for birds. First, it helps to spread vital oils along the feathers. Second, the heat helps to drive out any parasites that may be feeding on the bird’s plumage. Dealing with both issues helps to ensure that the bird’s feathers are well-maintained both for insulation and flight. The second, meanwhile, gives the bird a quick meal as it gets a chance to eat the insects while it preens itself.

Not every bird that worships the sun does it in the same way. Unlike cormorants, which stand, many species stay closer to the ground. Pigeons tend to lie on their side with one wing raised. Some doves, on the other hand, sit on the ground and raise both of their wings. Others flatten themselves out on the ground, the same way humans do when we lie out to sunbathe. Another dove species, the peaceful dove, plops down and spreads out, leaving its beak hanging open. the effect can make a bird look ill or distressed, but it’s really just enjoying a few rays.

you can make your yard more ideal for sunning birds by pruning vegetation away from sunny areas and providing a cool birdbath. You also want to make sure that cats can’t get at the sunning birds, since they are particularly vulnerable on the ground.

  Hi Sam
found this on Facebook and thought you might like it.
BEFORE I WAS A PARRONT
I NEVER TROD ON THROWN FOOT TOYS
OR NEED TO CHECK MY SHIRT BEFORE GOING OUT
I DIDNT WORRY IF THINGS WERE POISONOUS OR UNSAFE
I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT VETS AND COSTLY VISITS

BEFORE I WAS A PARRONT
I HAD NEVER BEEN POOPED ON
MY CLOTHES CHEWED ON
FOOD STOLEN FROM MY MOUTH
FINGERS BITTEN
I WAS NEVER ASKED "WATCHA -DOIN" FIFTY TIMES A DAY
I HAD COMPLETE CONTROL OF MY MIND AND MONEY
AND I SLEPT PAST 6AM

BEFORE I WAS A PARRONT
I NEVER HAD A THRASHING CREATURE
MADE OF ALL BEAK AND CLAWS JUST TO GIVE MEDICINE
I NEVER LOOKED INTO HURTING EYES AND CRIED
OR GOT GLORIOUSLY HAPPY OVER A SIMPLE TASTE OF CHOP
AND I NEVER SAT UP LATE HOURS AT NIGHT ON PARROT FORUMS

BEFORE I WAS A PARRONT
I NEVER SNUGGLED A SLEEPY PARROT
OR BLEW FEATHERY KISSES ON THEIR BELLY
I NEVER FELT MY HEART BREAK INTO A MILLION PIECES
WHEN I COULDNT STOP THEIR PAIN

I NEVER KNEW SOMETHING SO SMALL
COULD AFFECT MY LIFE SO MUCH
I NEVER KNEW I COULD LOVE SO MUCH
I NEVER KNEW- I WOULD LOVE BEING A PARRONT

  Hi Sam
i was all over mom preening her face and belly button tonight. i know where moms belly button is and all i do is lift up her shirt and find it and start preening it. mom kept her shoes on tonight so i wouldn't start preening her feet again. mom says that is close to torture.

  Hi Sam
i thought today was going to be a good day but boy was i wrong about that. mom decided to take us outside today and i was very happy and after trying to bite mom a few times while she put my harness on mom grabbed the paper and out to the porch we went. mom read the paper and i looked around. after mom finished reading the paper she decided to pick up some sticks laying on the grass. ok everything good so far. then mom started looking at me. not so good. next thing i know she has gotten out the dremmel grinder and is starting to work on my beak. i was mad and wouldn't co operate. the more mom tried the more i fight her. mom then wrapped me up in a towel and that was all i could take and started to scream. dad came outside to see what was going on. mom said to dad please hold her beak open so i can trim her lower beak. dad then held my beak open and in 1 minute mom had smoothed down my over grown lower beak and i could close my beak. it was almost more than i could take even though mom kissed me and said i looked beautiful. if i ever find that dremmel i am gong to destroy it.
