Awhile after losing my beloved Bailey, my husband found a bird on the internet. He asked if I liked it. I said yes, but I'm not ready. He said you will never be ready so let's go get the bird. We drove 945 round trip miles in the middle of October in the rain to Ohio. We found "him" (they thought it was a boy) in a small cage. The wings were severely cut, nails in bad shape, and tail shredded and broken. They got the bird at 10 weeks and had "him" a year. "He" never had a name, and they didn't handle the bird much. But they did teach him to step up and say "What are you doing"! They said, we are asking a good price because we don't want the bird. Well, the bird came home with us, an eight hour drive. After our vet saw the bird, it's a girl and she has a respiratory infection. She wasn't properly cared for so, she will always be small for a YCM. Named after a song we heard on the way home - David Bowie's China Girl, please welcome ...our little CHYNA girl.

Hi! My name is Chyna

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from Boyne City, MI.

Baby Girl, Chyna Cate

4 years old   F

Yellow-Collared Macaw

melon, apples, popcorn, peas, scrambled eggs.

On Mom's chair ...

Don't make fast moves around me. I don't like loud noises either!

I now have a real family and a big cage AND lots of toys and good food ... and a NAME! I've never had cuddles before and I like it!

Takes her leg and stretches it back and over her wing and rests her foot on her head. Plays with her toys with her feet while on her back.
I love to toss my toys on the floor and have Mom pick them up over and over.
I love exploring around the house on my own.

Be happy and healthy.

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Many families were without water for more than a day. However, it didn't effect us.
No phone calls for dad last night. He got to sleep all night. We were all surprised that he wasn't tired yesterday. Maybe all the coffee he drank had something to do with it.
We got some rain last night. A whopping 0.06 inches. But it looks like it was enough to dissolve the Weed & Feed stuff that dad put on the front lawn. The weather underground site shows rain for two more days but dad doesn't think it will amount to anything.
Today will be rainy, with a high of 63 and a low of 47.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna
Do you have one of each card now? Did mom ever send you Willie's? It's way too cold there! I think they're revising our temps downward, but not to -20!
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, Falco

  Hi, Chyna
Hopefully the road crews didn't miss their chance of working on the icy roads when temps were at 20. Maybe they just didn't do your area. Oh, are those ice balls at the lake again? Amazing pic of icicles. Would not want to be under any of 'em when they fall.

Nice pic of your parronts. Can tell it isn't taken in your area since it looks nice and clear outside the window, heehee.

Not much rain fell in our area yesterday. No surprise there as we usually only get the fringes of storms. Hopefully the mountains got some snow.

We look forward to seeing jockeys paired up with horses once the lottery has taken place.

Keep warm, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

I'm so glad I'm in the lottery ! Mom's drama club production (which is usually the same weekend) is the end of April this year !

Happy Sunday ! Mom and dad got home pretty late yesterday ! They brought in pizza for the g'parronts and watched GONE WITH THE WIND ! Do you know how long that is ? At least they brought me home some sugar snap peas :)

Today comes the snow - 4-6 inches by tomorrow, we'll see if it effects school at all. I guess a lot depends on the timing, and how much change over there is to ice. In the meantime, it'll be a COOKIE day ! ! Later on my Laura will come and we'll celebrate her birthday :)

Have a good day :) Love you ! Cookie

  Hi Sweetie,
I think the Derby Farm is awesome, what a great place for us to go and be with the horses and help out when needed. You know that if you need me to do anything to help out at the farm, all you need to do is call...


Mom and dad bought a new car today, mom posted a picture of it on FB.
Our new car...is a 2015 mustang convertible...the 50th anniversary addition. Signed the papers this morning, we get the car next week as it is a dealer trade. There was none in town...feeling excited.

The Corvette has a bad transmission and it was going to be very expensive to fix so dad figured it would be best to get rid of it before it cost us a lot of money in repairs...

I know that this is a very busy time for your mom but that can be a good thing to pass the time away when there is so much snow on the ground. Thank goodness for hot chocolate and footie pjs...

I love you to the moon and back...your Scooberman ♥

  HI CHYNA
OH I LOVE THE NEW DERBY PAGE. IT WILL BE GREAT HOSTING THE DERBY THERE. KACEY HAS ENTERED THE LOTTERY TO BE A JOCKEY THIS YEAR. I DO HOPE SHE GETS TO BE ONE.

IN OUR HOUSE WE HAD A WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR. AFTER MANY YEARS OF LOOSING POWER FOR WATEVER REASON AND LOOSING FOOD, G-PA HAD BOUGHT A GENERATOR TO JUST RUN THE FREEZER AND REFRIDGERATOR. BUT AFTER GOING ON LOOSING POWER HE FINALLY DECIDED ON GETTING A WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR. IT COST $4,000. IT WAS A SELF TESTER EVERY TUESDAY AND THE GUY WOULD COME ONCE A MONTH TO CHECK IT OVER AND MAKE SURE ENOUGH GAS WAS IN IT. IT WAS GREAT. WE GOT OUR MONEY'S WORTH OUT OF IT. NOW THE NEW PEOPLE WHO BOUGHT OUR HOUSE IS ENJOYING IT.

WE ARE ONLY GETTING ABOUT AN INCH OF SNOW OVER NIGHT AND THEN 4 INCHES ON TUESDAY. WE WILL NOT GET A WARM UP TILL NEXT WEEKEND. YEAH WE BROKE A RECORD HERE TOO FOR THE MOST COLDEST DAYS. THESE ARE RECORDS WE REALLY DO NOT NEED TO BREAK.

HOPE YOU HAVE A VERY NICE SUNDAY

  Hi Chyna
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 think having a page for the Derby is a great idea and now one can go there and practice with their horse and visit too. Oh I did put down I would like to be in the derby as a jockey if its possible. Its always so much fun!
Mom has been knitting a hat that her daughter in law told her about that she is making too. Well mom looked at it today and about 4 rows down mom pearled where she should of knitted. She thought about leaving the mistake there and then decided she would rip it out to that part and try to put the stitches back on and it worked! Mom is not good at knitting but sat at the table and took her time and even got the right number of stitches back on the needles so she was pretty excited about that. I bet winter will be over before this project is done though LOL “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Oh, you know I would be there for the Derby! I love the horses! And Lizzie loves the hats!

It was bright and sunny--sure made it seem like it was warmer than it was. I thought for sure I would be going with Mom to the store. She told me it was way too cold out there, even if it was sunny. She did bring me back some peas and carrots and fresh papaya and raspberrries and grapes. So I will forgive her. Oh, yeah, and samosa's from Trader Joe's. I had the meat ones and did not like them that much, so Mom picked up the veggie ones. Oh yeah! Now that is what I call a samosa!! Mmmm!

We are supposed to have some light snow tonight. Mom took the car in to be washed today too. She says it looks much better. That grey film of salt and road yuck is all gone. And boy were there a ton of folks at the car wash! Anyway, Tuesday is the big winter storm day, so you know Mom is staying at home with me. They are saying 6 inches after rain and sleet. Not driving weather. Nothing like the folks out east got, thank heavens.

Have a Stupendous Saturday!

It's Alex.
Yup, we get all that. But don't forget the wild forest fires.
We're on real late today cuz dad got called out at 4am to assist with traffic control for a water main break. What a mess. Dad said that the water pipes in La Habra are so old that he surprised that more haven't burst. When dad got home he just stayed up cuz it was almost 10am. He cleaned our room and helped mom make home made pasta sauce and paid bills. By then it was time to start working on dinner.
They are calling for rain for the next three days. So far there has been just a few drops. The high for today was 66 and the low will be 48.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

Please don't forget today is the last day to vote for Flitzer for BOTM, and I think we all can agree he has run an entertaining and educational campaign. It brought back many fine memories and introduced new movie info. Well done, my friend!

No sun bath today, although no rain yet either. It is supposed to start some time this evening, and continue thru Monday. Actually two back to back storms, and here's hoping we get enough rainfall to make a difference to our poor thirsty Mama Earth.

Mom and I shared the remains of her Chicken Bowl for lunch, and boy do I love me some Chicken Bowl. Since they changed to Subway at the last minute last Friday, I was very pleased to see my favorite (next to jambalaya) last night and today. Then Dad brought me a tiny little tater chip from the store which was Mac and Cheese flavor. It was pretty good, but I am waiting for him to open the Wasabi and Ginger bag. I had one of those when they were out for the contest (these are the two winning flavors) and I know I love that one! I never get a big one, and never more than one a day, but what a treat!

I just came from the Derby Farms page where I threw my name into the lottery. I am hoping to get to ride again, but I have had the honor in the past so if my name isn't drawn I plan to volunteer as a groom. I do love horses, and they all look like winners this year (as they always do!).

Hi Chyna,
Thanks so much for all the votes and visits helping me get to 3K, I hope I can slow down now. Sorry I haven’t been able to blog all week. You know Momma…busy, busy, busy. She can’t keep up this pace on BC. Anyway, I had a great time last Sunday at Bird Club. Then the week flew by full of appointments and things, plus the never ending vacuuming and cleaning up after us 7 birdies and the unending chores that all mommies have to do! Today, Momma’s trying to catch up with all of our blogs. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  Hi Chyna
So, should I say they look so young in that pic, hahaha? They do, actually. Your weather is really bad this year, good thing mom and Aunts D&T came to see you a couple of years ago. I like your new page, but maybe a bird on the building in the main pic would make me like it more. Just saying...
Yes, it's a very aggressive raccoon and it's in the RVS room. It lunges and growls if a person even gets near its cage. Mom isn't afraid of much, but she has no intention of getting within biting or scratching range of this fellow.
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, Falco

We want so much to participate in this years Chyna Derby! Please place our name in contention, we do not have to win, we just want to be there! Dear BC friends, Jenny has identified our stupid weather guesser, his name is Jihadi John, and she going after him, no need to have pity on him, he is merciless, and will deserve anything that happens to him! She packed her ruck sack with her razor sharp Ka-Bar, a bag of pistachios, and her cell phone to call Alfie! Cappy and Panther is going with her to cover her back, who could be better, that TooMan is part attack Zon, and Panther knows the rules of engagement, LOL! Except for another record low temp this AM, -18, we are all doing very well, it is so cold that daddy can not spend much time at Christy's graveside, that always troubles him when he can not connect with the love of his life! Have a great day our dear BC friends, and like always, give our pure love to all in your happy parrot cottage, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi, Chyna
That's good your dad sent the pics to your mom. Hmmm, retrieving from windows 8...think we downloaded and it saved to a file called downloads and opened it from there to rename it to find it and from there sent to where we keep all our pics.

Wondered how safe the roads there were if icy. So, in the minus temps the usual salt or sand treatments are no use? Yikes! How do people get around? Drive slow and hope for the best? Yeah, breaking the record for most days of eggstreme minus temps in a row is nothing to strive for!

Finally ! Good-bye to February ! Maybe spring will come soon . . . although we are supposed to get another 2-4 inches of white stuff tomorrow and then again on Thursday :(

Today, mom and dad are going to see the g'parronts and then tomorrow is my Laura's birdday ! She's house (and bunny and budgie and fish) sitting this weekend so she's right down the road !

Have a great Saturday - love Cookie

  Flitzer Final February Post
THE LOST ART OF THE INTERMISSION:
For many years, longer films were planned with Intermisisons. the story would take a dramatic pause, the music would swell, and the audience got to take a break to use the bathrooms, visit the Refreshment Stand etc.
--
I always loved the Intermission music. Often in the older theaters, curtains would dramatically close on the Intermission, and slowly open when Part 2 began.
--
Nowadays we're forced to sit for 2 1/2, 3 hrs or more without a break.
[The Lord of the Rings films are good examples - they are long, involved, and you're lost if you had to take a break away from the screen].

Even revivals of older films will skip right over the Intermission - forcing you to shift in your seat - and hold it in for another extended period of time - ~ugh~
--
Unfortunately, after paying the high ticket-prices we need to *er* …"step away" from the film for a few minutes, missing possibly something interesting.
--
Theater owners are always conscious of how many showings they can fit in per day, but I say BRING BACK THE INTERMISSION. People *will* spend more for refreshments, and not have to miss any of the movie.

  Hi chyna, I'll have a Mint Tulip.....
They were trying to make an arrest of a bad guy from PA, and he pointed a gun at them, and it ended with him being dead.

And it isn't getting any better. Seems the big news every morning in the paper is that there was another shooting. Tampa is really getting bad. R T

  Hi Chyna
love your st paddys day picture. i see the ice balls are back at the beach.

survived the day. first i had my nails done. i screamed after each toenail was clipped. mom then used a emery board to smooth the edges. i really wanted to bite mom for that. then when i thought it was all over mom decided to trim my beak a little. how much worse can the day get i thought. after mom put me back in my cage i sat there and pouted. mom felt sorry for me and decided to bring me out to calm me down. i lunged at her and wouldn't come out of my cage. by this evening i had forgiven mom for the awful day she put me through and came out for my playtime. i wasn't very active but at least i got some cuddles and head scratches from mom.

love Cori

  Hi Chyna, ♥
Jewels went by the new Derby Farms page...that was a good idea to have a place for the horses to live so the jockeys can visit them.
I think that Taz was jealous but you are right...he can't pull us apart ever...

I bet your hot chocolate bill must be mighty high this year...

Scoober hands Chyna a cup of coco...

  HI CHYNA
OH I HOPE YOU DO NOT LOOSE POWER AGAIN. THATS NOT GOOD. HOW DID YOUR DAD KEEP YOU WARM WHEN THE GENERATOR NOT WORK?

WE HAD A BRIGHT SUNNY DAY HERE BUT IT WAS STILL COLD. 12 DEGREES FOR A HIGH. SATURDAY NIGHT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET 3 INCHES OF SNOW. WITH IT BEING SO COLD THE SNOW IS NOT MELTING.

MOM WENT TO THE GYM TODAY AND GOT IN A GOOD WORKOUT.

I HOPE YOU ARE SAYING PRAYERS FOR DIXIE'S NANA AND FOR AUNT ROSE TO HAVE THE STRENGTH TO HELP NANA IN HER RECOVERY. NANA IS NOT DOING SO WELL AFTER THE SURGERY SO KEEP HER IN YOUR PRAYERS.

MOM TOLD AUNT ROSE NOT TO WORRY ABOUT BLOGGING ON THE BC EACH DAY BUT TO CONCENTRATE ON CARING FOR NANA. SHE CAN SEND MOM AN E-MAIL AND MOM WILL KEEP EVERYONE UP TO DATE ON HOW NANA IS DOING.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND I PRAY YOU DO NOT LOOSE POWER AND STAY NICE AND WARM.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Still cold here, but the sun was out. At least it seemed to make it a little warmer but we were in the teens, and colder with the wind chill. Mom went out for her walk at lunch time and it was okay when she stayed in the sun, but not good in the shade. She can't get on the path in the park, as that is snowed in.

Mom and I are having a nice night. We played bouncy ball, where did that bird go in the microwave, sommersaults into Mom's shirt and crawl out the armhole. And snuggle and nap on Mom's shoulder.

TGIF!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Chyna
My mom's not Irish either but maybe with me being green we can have some luck of the Irish.
Oh yeah March here is notorious for big winter storms. We already have a good chance for nasty weather on Tuesday my mom is glad she has that day off.
Hope you can get some sunny days and warmer weather. Have a good night my friend.
