Mr SKY & the lovely MISS BIG BABY (BB) are to be wed in JANUARY 2014
date to be announced
Baby is the LOVE-OF-MY-LIFE- , and always will be.

THE SPOTLIGHT ON CARING blogs will resume in November 2013 with Polly & Zippy



Sky was a bird that was extremely abused early in his life. He sustained many injuries that where never treated.
At 2 years old SKY was rescued and went to live in a parrot rescue near London, Ont. He lived there for 7 years. It became necessary to rehome SKY into a forever home with someone who would accept and make allowances for his disabilities. By chance I saw something regarding Sky on the internet and decided to check it out. I am so glad that my curiosity brought us together. HE is a true gentleman and a spokes bird about abuse and rescues.
He travels around Eastern Ontario where he & Momma Deb speak to people or groups about humane bird care, about abuse and about bird rescues etc.
HE is a home town celebrity, with people stopping in to visit with him regularly.

  Hello Mr. Sky! I'm BAAACK!! I Hope Not Like....
...a bad penny! Thanks for all the nice cards, calls, prayers & wellness thoughts for my Mom. She thought she'd never shake that lupus/RA flare. It didn't help at all because of that infected tooth. Any infection or illness, she's to stop taking the RA medicine. She's to leave it out of her medication taking until 2 weeks after the antibiotic in finished. That ended up being 3 weeks of no medicine to keep that RA in check. Once she started it up again, that's when she thought she should be getting better, instead she felt worse. That's because that kind of medicine has to "build up" to be effective in warding off the RA symptoms. She told me her hair even hurt! She couldn't even get out of bed some days. But she would try everyday. When she really felt terrible it was because her fever was so high. It would swing back & forth between 101 & 102. She had called her doctor about that & he was wondering if the tooth problem had come back. So, she had to be run up to the dentist's office just to rule that out. Thank goodness, it was all okay. Mom sure didn't want anymore drilling for China going on in her mouth again. It was just healing up nicely. Anyway, Mom has heard that somethings that are just the run of the mill everyday things that humans will go through, that it might be a bit harder for her because of her illnesses. This is the first significant trouncing she has taken from dental work. Her immune system is run by the 3 Stooges & she's quite sure of it! Things it's suppose to do, it does the opposite of it or goes overboard doing too much. Mom's glad it's over with & is now trying to "catch up". She went to her email & it was a thousand plus emails in there. She almost went back to bed seeing that many! I had to coax her out with me saying cutie things to her like, "come have a birdy day!" and also, "I want some toast!" I thought expressing my needs would kick start the "Mom instinct" in her to help her along. It's worked some.

Well, I think I better ask for some "treats" before it gets too close to dinner time.

Can't wait for this Saturday! Piggy races are going to be so awesome! Good luck to all who are riding in that! Hugs to all, SamIAm

This morning mom got the letters to the tax folks off in the mail. She sent 2, one for the municipal tax and one for the school tax, and both went certified, so she'll have a record of them being collected. She is hoping that will lead to a quick refund, but we all think she's having a pipe dream. After mailing the letters, she went to 4 stores before she found the right vitamins for her eyes that the retina people told her to take. You would think they'd be easier to find than that.
Now she's home, the house is clean, and she isn't going back outside until the pool opens at 3:30, so she's ours for the day. It's another beautiful summer day here, hope you are having the same. Get lots of love today! Hugs, Willie

Well, my awesome claws are gone ! And although I didn't get the groomer - I got mom on the knuckle real good ! har har har - let that be a reminder to her of how much I dislike having pedicures ! Now, I'm free till Nov. 11, which is my annual check-up. Veteran's Day - mom is off, Dr. Hess is not ! There must be more bird owners in my area - my vet (owner of Veterinary Center for Birds) just hired a third avian specialist ! ! !

One more hot one to get through today and then temperatures are supposed to moderate back to the low 80's. Mom gets her feathers colored and cut today and tomorrow daddy's car goes in for inspection - lots to do before school starts next week !

you know pharecutical companies have lots of cures for rare disease but they won't make them because since so few people have the disease ithe companies feel they can't make enough profit.

mom been having a heck of a time trying and find my food. the store in new hampshire where she buys my pate no longer carries my food because it was made in england by a german company who no longer distributes in the untied states. mom feels i do as well as i do because of this pate. anyway she found a store on amazon that had one bag left which is from new jersey.

Happy Birthday to Mother Theresa, may she rest in sainted peace. She sure brought about change in her ministry.
Today mom had a lot of errands to run before blogging, and she still isn't really done. She took the dogs to the new groomer, and they look and smell divine now! She also had to get more blankets and stuffed animals for the squirrels, pick up some wild bird seeds, go to the grocery and buy fresh veggies and fruits for us. By the time she got that done, it was time to feed the squirrel babies, so she came home and did that, then the groomer called, so she went to pick up the girls.
Later she is going to the pool, then hoping to find the vitamins she needs for her eyes, going to Aunt Gin's house to make a copy of her property assessment for the local tax office. These folks are willing enough to send out statements when they get their assessments from the county, but not willing to accept that the house has been reassessed, even though we know the county sent them a statement. They want mom to send a statement too, so she can get a refund. Whatever, though, she'll do it.
We may be in lockdown longer than normal today, but we know she'll be back to clean cages and spend at least a little time with us tonight. Hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Notice is did not say GOOD morning ! Today is a day of DOOM (aka as groom). Why do mom and dad complain about a few scratches on their arms ! They are signs of my love ! Anyway, that groomer better be ready, cause I spent the afternoon yesterday sharpening my beak !

At least it's supposed to be a nice day for traveling . . . then later this afternoon some friends are coming over to visit. Mom hopes I'll be sociable cause usually I get very moody and angry at her on days of doom . . . The only good thing about the whole ordeal is I get my rope toys back ! Mom and dad have been worried about my toenails getting caught on them.

Hope you have a better day than me ! love Cookie

  Hi Sky
A SHOCKING NEW REPORT: the newest fad for moms with children is to actually allow children to play on their own and make their own friends and ease up on the scheduled playdates.

Another reason to love bees: they might be able to help us fight cancer.

While venom isn’t usually known as a friendly thing, new research shows that venom from bees, snakes and scorpions could potentially be used to fight certain forms of cancer. While you wouldn’t go and inject someone with a dose of venom, which could have lethal effects, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that if they isolated specific proteins in the venom, these could be used in a safe way to block tumor growth.

“We have safely used venom toxins in tiny nanometer-sized particles to treat breast cancer and melanoma cells in the laboratory,” study author Dipanjan Pan of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said in a statement. “These particles, which are camouflaged from the immune system, take the toxin directly to the cancer cells, sparing normal tissue.”

Previous studies have shown the potential power of venom, but because of the potentially very dangerous side effects of venom injection — damage to nerve cells, for example — that power couldn’t be properly harnessed.
The toxins in question are peptide toxins. The researchers made a synthetic version in the lab, then injected it into the tiny nanoparticles. “The peptide toxins we made are so tightly packed within the nanoparticle that they don’t leach out when exposed to the bloodstream and cause side effects

When the nanoparticles with the toxins attach to a cancer cell they can either slow down or stop the cancer cell growth, which can ultimately stop a cancer from spreading. what we are interested in are the cells responsible for metastasizing and having the cancer cells grow back,If we can target better using this technique, we potentially have a better cancer treatment.”

Now that they’ve figured out how to synthesize venom and put it in nanoparticles, the next step is to test it out on humans, in the next three to five years.

Today at the center, mom worked reception again. They released about 70 animals this morning, mostly birds, so there was a ton of filing to do. They keep records on every animal, and when they are done with the animal, whether it was released, died, or was euthanized, that record gets filed for the Game Commission.
Mom came home to feed the squirrels, and one of them has her eyes open! She is a tiny grey squirrel that was marked as 3 weeks old, but clearly with her eyes open, she's much older than that. She must have been the runt of the litter or her mom was not very big. She was just admitted to the center Saturday, so she is still on a very weak formula, but with her eyes open, she's gonna want food soon!
The pool opens late today, and mom wasn't going to go, but it's already in the 80s here, so she will be going up for a brief time to get into the water.
I hope you are having a good day, getting some sun and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sky
The free range farming label is one of the biggest marketing scams of our time. consumers who are opposed to the idea of factory farming switch to buying free range eggs, as they are under the impression that these birds live happy healthy lives with the freedom to roam in lush green fields, flapping about in the sunshine and pecking in the dirt. this vision of a free range hen is just an illusion. statistics show that the vast majority of free range hens live in overcrowded cramped conditions and never get the opportunity to feel the sun on their backs, or grass under their feet.The legal requirements for free range hens in the United States only stipulates that hens are given access to the outside, with tiny doors that do not even legally have to be open.
In practice this means that the majority of free range hens never actually go outside and instead live their entire lives in huge, cramped, squalid conditions which lead to feather loss, illness, disease, injury and depression.

Free Range and Factory Farming Practices are Almost IdenticalAs well as considering the lies told about the living conditions of free range hens, it’s important to look at the standard industry practices as well.All eggs come from hatcheries where male chicks are considered to be a byproduct of the process and are crushed alive at just one day old. Females have the tip of their beaks burnt off to prevent pecking injuries to each other and are then crammed into huge crates and sent off to their destination farms, with millions dying in transit due to starvation, dehydration and injury.
iDespite not being housed in individual cages like factory farmed hens, free range egg layers are kept in extremely cramped conditions with as many as 20,000 hens being raised in a single barn, each having a space the size of an iPad.

There is nothing humane about conditions these hens have to endure during their lives, and it is time we started lifting the lid on the myth of free range farming. It is factory farming with a pretty label on the packaging, certainly not a welfare standard consumers should be feeling happy about.

Mom has foster squirrels! Last night she got an email saying the center was flooded with babies and they were in desperate need for fosters. This morning mom picked up a baby fox squirrel and a baby gray squirrel, both eyes closed. She wanted to take more, but our space is limited and we only have 2 heating pads. Anyway, that's why we're so late getting online today. Mom had to find her squirrel foster kit in the basement and clean everything today, she's already fed them twice, and she also got to the pool. It's been over a year since she fostered, and it should be fun.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine and scritches! Hugs, Willie

Mom finished her classroom - there is some cutting left to do during the week which I will be more than happy to help with ! Yesterday she and dad went to the state park for a short hike since it was such a nice day - then they stopped and did the marketing so the fridge is full ! Looks like a good weather week coming up - like summer ! More hot and humid . . . which hasn't been around much this year.

Mom talked to Aunt Robin last night and she seems to be doing a bit better. She has gone to the Aquatic center for some water therapy, which seems to be helping, and hopefully her meds will kick in soon and she'll be back here with SamIAm.
Not much going on here today. It's supposed to rain off and on all day long both today and tomorrow and be gorgeous on Monday, when the pool is closed until 3:30. That's what always happens, mom says.
Mom is looking for a new groomer because the one she was using has her phone shut off, so we think she's no longer in business. Hope she finds one soon, Polly is looking shaggy and Daisy is finding more places to hold her and drag her around like a pull toy.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of love and some sunshine as well. Hugs, Willie

Today mom went to the eye doc, who says all is well. She's going back in 3 weeks for the final follow up and the refraction exam for glasses, YAY! After the eye doc, she went to the center to do her shift at reception again. Maybe next week she'll start with the animals, but she felt it best to do another day at the desk today.
After the center, she went to the bank, then to the Giant Eagle pharmacy to pick up her meds, and finally to the pool for a couple of hours. Now we will have her for the rest of the day, hooray! She will be on the phone looking for a groomer for Polly for part of the time, but the rest of the time, she's ours.

  Heya, Sky!
Well, we had some decent rain here today. Mom wasn't able to get out to walk much, either. She did have a couple meetings in different buildings but she did not make it to the lake. Maybe tomorrow. Supposed to be hot and humid--and I am sending some of it to Miss Chyna, cuz she really would like some nice hot weather. We are supposed to be pretty toasty thru the weekend. I am not complaining!

This morning when got me up, we went to the window like we always do, to look out at the cars and trucks on the expressway. Well, they are doing all kinds of work on the electrical towers. There was this cherry picker out there, and it was raised up sky high! Scared the heck out of me. Mom said that they must have to do that to get any moisture off the whole thing. I sure was having none of it!! Had to go on my playgym, cuz Mom knew I hated seeing that thing!

Not much new here, mom did get to the pool yesterday and it turned into a gorgeous day by noon. Today looks good, too. Later she will go to dinner with her sister, then come home and clean cages for us. Tomorrow morning is her second follow up appointment with the eye doc, then back to the center for her shift.
Mom got an email from SamIAm's mom, Aunt Robin. Her lupus and rheumatoid arthritis have both flared up at once, not long after she underwent oral surgery. She had to quit taking one of her drugs for the surgery, and is now able to take it again, but it has to build up in her system to work. Anyway she's at home with a fever, thinking about BC and how much she misses everyone. Sam misses his birdie friends, too. We hope to see them back soon, but in the meantime, please keep Aunt Robin in your prayers.

We woke up to rain :( It's a good day for mom to go try to finish up in the classroom. While she does, I'll nap ! If everything but those pesky boards are done she won't have to go back till meeting time on the 2nd of Sept. Problem is she has 2 small ones and 2 huge almost wall size ones ! Tomorrow she wants to go to the farm for peaches and early apples - can you say YUMMY ?

Yesterday she scrubbed down my gym - boy do I have a lot of work ahead of me today ! All my toys are on the table and have to be dragged back one at a time and a perfect place found for them ! So I hope she gets home early !

Have a good Thursday :) Love Cookie

random animal facts that may surprise you
1. A type of "immortal" jellyfish is capable of cheating death indefinitely.
2. Octopuses have three hearts.
3. Butterflies can taste with their feet.
4. Cats and horses are highly susceptible to black widow venom, but dogs are relatively resistant. Sheep and rabbits are apparently immune.
5. Sharks kill fewer than 10 people per year. Humans kill about 100 million sharks per year.
6. Wild dolphins call each other by name.
7. Young goats pick up accents from each other.
8. Humpback whale songs spread like "cultural ripples from one population to another."
9. Tardigrades are extremely durable microscopic animals that exist all over Earth. They can survive any of the following: 300 degrees Fahrenheit (149 Celsius), -458 degrees F (-272 C), the vacuum of space, pressure six times stronger than the ocean floor and more than a decade without food.
10. Horses use facial expressions to communicate with each other.

  Hi Sky
Today is dark and gloomy, and it was pouring rain when mom walked the girls this morning. Now it seems to be rain free, but who knows how long that will last? So, it must mean it's a laundry catch up day for us here. So many things to wash, and all those trips up and down the stairs will provide good exercise for mom today. We are keeping Kiddo's mom and dad in our prayers, as well as Sweetpepper's Grandpa. We hope all goes well for each of them and they all heal successfully.
I hope you are having a good day today and getting lots of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Willie

  Happy humpday !
Mom and dad had a great time at the fair yesterday ! Besides seeing all the crafts and animals and walking around the midway, they saw PIG RACES !! Guess who won ? Brittany Spareribs ! har har har ! And they ate enough to last the rest of the week ! I told you daddy loves his junkfood !

Now today, mom is unpacking boxes in her classroom - she got the furniture set on Monday. Then all that's left is the bulletin boards which she can work on at home - they're easy enough to hang - it's the ideas that are tough to come up with . . .

Come visit me, Cookie and Petunia - ready to win !, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi Sky
Not much going on here, Mom saw a movie last night called the 100 Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren. It was a really good movie, but she and Gin saw it at 6:30, before dinner, and it made them both really hungry. It was all about 2 restaurants across the street from each other! Anyway, after the movie, they went to the Thai restaurant to eat dinner, which was delightful. That was Ginny's birthday gift--mom was teasing her because her birthday was at the beginning of June, so mom said she could finally end the celebration! Today looks like a pool day, so we won't have mom this afternoon, but once she gets home, she's ours and we might even get outside for awhile. I hope you are having a good day with lots of cuddles and good weather. Hugs, Willie
