  Hi Marigold
Thanks for the votes every day! I really love hearing from you, too.
Before we leave the Strip, we have to visit St. Stanislaus Church, it's right in the center of things, there on Smallman Street! The first 2 pics in my gallery show one of the oldest churches in Pittsburgh, St. Stanislaus in the Strip. I thought while we were seeing churches, we could go back to Oakland and see St. Paul's Cathedral, the next 2 pics in my gallery. This is the biggest Catholic church in the area. The last 2 new pics are of East Liberty Presbyterian Church, built by the Mellons in the 1800s. The people in Pittsburgh at the time called it Mellon's Fire Escape! Maybe it was, who knows? Today at that church, there are organ recitals every week, and Taize music some evenings. If you don't know the Taize stuff, you should google it and listen to a piece or 2, it's beautiful singing.
So, tomorrow we will go back to Oakland to see other things, including Heinz Chapel.
You may have noted Heinz field, Heinz History museum, and now Heinz chapel; what's that all about? We'll talk more tomorrow! Hope you have a spectacular day. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Marigold
Think many dogs have trouble with stairs as it must be a bit tricky to learn how to negotiate with their four paws. Good that the family is able to get her outside for potty breaks and that she's fine on the flat ground. Even if doggie hearing were to go the doggie sense of smell would never let 'em down when food is offered.

Well, we got thru the entire day of rain that occurred on Thu. Many areas lost power and there was flooding and other issues, but we are fine. Yesterday saw a bit of sun and a bit more rain but nothing heavy.

Gotta work on our cards since there's less than two weeks left!

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

  Hi Marigold
Thank you for your daily visits and votes!
Today we are visiting another area of Pittsburgh which used to be little known, but now is pretty much known to any tourist who comes here. It's the Strip District. No, people don't strip to go there, it's a strip along the Allegheny River very close to town. It used to be a large warehouse district where greengrocers, butchers, and other merchants went early in the day (think 3AM) to get fresh supplies for their stores. The public could also go there and shop. In mom's family, they went in the fall to get whole pigs for sausages and crates of grapes for wine. Over time, as more of the public went there to shop for goods, it became specialized into ethnic shopping areas. There were stores like the Pennsylvania Macaroni company, catering to Italians, Stamboolis, catering to near eastern groups, Greek and Asian markets, etc. Today, the strip has become more genteel, so to speak. There are no longer hucksters in the streets, and lots of the big warehouses are now art galleries, bars, dance clubs, or broken into groups of smaller shops, like the Pittsburgh Public Market.
The oldest stores, like PennMac (Mom's favorite), Wholey's Fish market, and a few others are still up and thriving, but smaller markets, like the biscotti company are doing well too. They have even started sidewalk cafes in the strip for the summer trade. It retains some of its old flavor, though, which makes it still a great place to walk and shop.
Have a wonderful day, don't forget to give out kissies for those scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Marigold
This morning was a bright sunny morning after nearly a week of darkness and all that rain and some snow!It was freezing though and never went any higher than 41 degrees.The lows for tonight will be 29.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix,collected the trash and loaded it in her car,then she warmed the car up while she got my carrier ready and put me in it and they took off for Nana's where both Nana and Mom went to the dump,then to the bank,then to True Value for Mom to get a drill bit for dad,then to Comcast to pay their bills,then to Christmas Tree Shop,Petco and then they walked over to see the Dollar Tree that the arsonist burned and it was awful,the floor was all burned off and everything was empty on the shelves and the door they busted to get in the place was all boarded up.Then Mom and Nana went to WalMart and Mom bought two 40 lb bags of wild bird seed,and a few other things and they met skin bro there,Mom was happy to see him as he lifted the heavy bags of bird seed for her and put them into the cart and then into the car.Then skin bro had to go to the Auto parts store and Mom and Nana went to Shaws and bought some things that were on sale and then after that they came back to Nana's to have another late lunch around 3:30pm.Skin bro met us at Nana's and they all had lunch together,then as it was starting to get really dark fast,Mom packed me up and headed for home.It was really dark by the time she got out of Nana's street and those of us who had to stay home were in the dark as our dad was working the Christmas Stroll in Osterville tonight so we had no snacks,no pellet refills in our dishes and no light on.We all really yelled at Mom for not coming home sooner.But as soon as Mom got the car unpacked she came into our room and cleaned our cages for the night,closed our curtains and gave us our snacks.Dad called Mom to make sure that she was home as he knows she hates to drive in the dark and now for a while Mom is helping us to catch up with our visits before our dad gets home!Other than that its been an uneventful day!
We are all so happy to hear that your sweet little dog is doing fine now,that is always such a scary thing to happen and its so funny to know that she's well enough to hear her food bowl and can walk well enough to get to it!LOL!We are all so relieved that they got all the cancer out and she is healing and on the mend!She will always be in our thoughts and prayers for complete healing!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for you too!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Happy Friday!!Things are busy here but as it gets closer to christmas it should slow down.My mom just has a bit more shopping to do and a little baking and present wrapping then everything will be done.
Thats good the doggie can walk just fine in the house and needing help with the stairs seems about right for a doggie of that age.
Going to be in the 40's this weekend thats going to be nice hope the whole winter can be on the warmer side.Have a good evening.

Thanks for your daily votes, I love hearing from you each day and returning the favor.
Today we will look at the *PPG Aquarium. It's part of the zoo at Highland Park, but is newer. Mom was looking for pics of the neat sea dragons, but couldn't find any from PPG. Sea dragons are in the sea horse family, but are much more colorful, and they have a neat tank of them at the aquarium. There are mostly what you would expect there, fish, like sharks and things. They have piranhas, too. There is an outdoor part with PA freshwater fish in it, and the polar bears are there as well. They also have a breeding facility. So the aquarium is home to lots of marine and freshwater fish, jellyfish, a huge coral reef, and lots of other things that live underwater. One of mom's favorite parts is that you can walk underneath the polar bears' pool and if they are swimming, it looks really cool. They have a fisherman's village set up beneath the polar bear exhibit, with lots of artifacts, as well as lists of sustainable fish to eat, and those that are not sustainable. When you leave the aquarium, you can either head home or go to the children's zoo. Mom likes going through the whole place, though, so even though she's far too old to be a child, she heads for the children's zoo at the end of the aquarium.
Hope you are having a good day and that I'll see you again tomorrow. Hugs, Peppino
*PPG stands for Pittsburgh Plate Glass, the sponsor of the aquarium.

Jules smiles big at the lovely tiel. I hear from my fisters that you can do wonders with parsley. Heard something about some cookies. They sound pretty good to me.
Anyhow, Char didn't even know I'd been BOTD with all the computer trouble lately and other things so that's why I haven't been by. Silly woman, why'd she think all us birds were gone for a whole day? Well, most of us, Sophie kept her busy. But really....humans!
Char is really good to me. She even snuggles me if I bite her and her hair! Oh all that hair to snuggle into. She had to really dig to get me out last night. I got scared when she caught me to put me to bed and she just snuggled me and told me SHE was sorry for scaring me!! The best thing is NO GLOVES to catch me at all!! So different here and I even get along with Ipo. She doesn't like Oatie & Makana for some reason but she seems to like me. Char is worried I won't want to go to skin sis' to live with another tiel, and I might not. But it sure is nice being treated like a bird and being loved on. I never was before.
Oh dear, here's Ipo picking me up in the shuttle. I've got so many to visit. Thanks again for sharing my day at the castle.

Thanks for your vote, I appreciate each one.
Today we can visit the sports arenas of the city. Pittsburgh has 3 teams, the Pirates (whose mascot is a parrot), the Penguins (whose mascot is a penguin, of course), and the Steelers (whose mascot is creepy!). So, I'm showing 2 pics of the North Shore, where the Pirates play baseball in PNC Park and the Steelers play at Heinz Field. Pitt also plays football at Heinz Field. The hockey arena is my third pic, that's the new Consol Energy Center. Other events are held there as well, the circus, ice shows, the occasional basketball game, concerts, etc. Pittsburgh boasts some rabid sports fans, and there are lots of places in town where a person can buy Pirate, Penguin, or Steeler gear and other memorabilia.
I hope you are having a happy day and whatever team you root for in football wins today. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Marigold
Thanks so much for your support.
Today I want to go back to the higher education facilities in Pittsburgh, but just to the University of Pittsburgh.
The Cathedral of Learning, Pitt's main building on campus, is a special place. It's a skyscraper of a building, but the first 2 floors are what you want to see. If you are interested in Pittsburgh's ethnic heritage, they have Nationality rooms. We can go into who settled here in a later blog, but on these floors of the cathedral, each ethnic group has decorated a classroom with things that are particular to its culture. Mom took Italian classes in the Italian room, and it's gorgeous, with dark wood paneling, lots of cultural references to the artists, composers, poets, etc. that Italy has produced. Other rooms include those from Eastern Europe, the Philippine Islands, Vietnam, China, Japan, Western Europe, and the Caribbean. They have added Latin American rooms lately as well. It's truly spectacular this time of year, with all the Nationality Rooms decorated for Christmas. If you come to Pittsburgh for Christmas, this is a must see!
I hope you are having a great day. Hugs, Peppino

That is wonderful news about the old furball. Hopefully she is recovering from the tumor removal and live a few more years as many do live wayyyyy past 13.

Got rain here over the w/e. Rained Mon, Tue and yesterday too. Some areas had flooding but not near us. Not near a hillside so no risk of mudslide either. Know we've probably got our normal rain for the season now but need lots more to get out of the drought.

Thanks for your vote. Okay, I'm Peppino, the newest member of the flock. I've been with mom and the flock since September 2013, when I was just a baby. I picked mom out at a bird show, and wouldn't leave her alone, so she figured she might as well take me home, heehee. I think she really likes me, though. I'm very talkative, and have picked up several words and phrases in the past year, which I would be happy to share with you while mom is on the phone or trying to watch TV.
We don't have a theme as such this month, but I'll bring you some fun facts about Pittsburgh, share some pics with you (as soon as BC has things working again), and hopefully get your vote all month long. I return votes, as well. Hope you are having a good day and it looks like I'm off to a good start. Hugs, Peppino

So, what special food did you get? I got to sample a lot of things, and mom's daughter made up a Peppino song just for me! I danced every time she sang it, too. I thought it was a pretty neat song. One of mom's amaryllis is in bloom, and gorgeous! Her Christmas cactus is also blooming but it's nearly done now. The paperwhites are in bloom in the kitchen and filling the house with their presence. Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday! Hugs, Peppino

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
We woke up to a dark snowy morning with big huge snowflakes falling down from the sky!Mom was panicking as she kept watching to see if it would stick or not and thank goodness it didn't!Mom quickly packed all the things she was taking over to Nana's for Thanksgiving,the cornbread she made some alphabet macaroni for Nana's turkey soup,and then she got all our carriers out and we all got to go with them!We all got to stay in Bella's room with our cousins and the skin sibs came over and after Mom got us all settled in she went out to the kitchen and helped Nana get things ready to be cooked for the dinner.It didn't take long for Nana's house to smell sooo good with turkey and stuffing and all the pies that they put in the oven and corn bread,rolls,broccoli,butternut squash,mashed potatoes,cranberry sauce,gravy and was it so tantalizing!We all even got to have some pomegranates,oranges and apples to snack on while everyone ate the turkey!It was a nice quiet day we all had together!
I want to tell you all just how thankful I am to have you as my friend,you all mean the world to me and I just can't put into words how much you have changed my and my Mom's and Nana's world!We are all so grateful for the love and caring you give us each and everyday,the true warm friendship that you just can't find anywhere else!You are the real meaning of love and friendship and we are all so blessed and honored to be walking in the sunshine of your love!
Your poor Mom and that poor little dog,he will be in our prayers for a speedy healing!My Mom can understand worrying about the poor dog!My Mom has been so upset over my frother Mario who was only given two days to two months to live and he's doing so much better right now!
Wishing you a greyt Thanksgiving and we are all wishing that your world is shining bright today and everyday with love as you have made ours!We love you all soo soo very much!

Happy Thanksgiving to the flock and family. We had our feast Tue night as that was the best day for the family due to mom and skinsis work schedules. Turkey and all the regular fixings the family does. Mom made everything. Dad helped by buying the new roaster that baked the turkey and the new cutting board on which to carve said turkey. Lots of leftovers and hope your flock got a taste of the yummy stuff.

Hope that older furball is feeling better.

Thanks for liking our Thanksgiving pics. They're old ones but still good since mom doesn't have time to create new ones.

It was our pleasure to fly over to remember Quill. We know families never really forget any beloved pet members and seeing pics brings back the happy memories.

We still hope to get a normal amount of rainfall this season. Not sure how much the arctic blast will bring but we'll take it. Temps haven't been that cool for us.

My dad took the lawn mower and put that back down the cellar and he took the snow blower up in its place to be ready!We woke up to a thickly foggy day with the lawns damp and the streets wet and a 59 degree day here with very little sunshine,the skies were mostly cloudy with dark clouds til late this afternoon,then we got some bright sunshine but it left as fast as it came!I agree with you,I sure hope we won't be needing the snow shovel too soon,we can wait on Winter to get here and wish it won't come til February!

  Hi Marigold
They turn brown every fall, so mom doesn't worry about them, but they are kind of heavy with brown this year, so maybe she'll trim them back a bit. It's hard to know that winter is nearly here, and the garden has been put to bed, so to speak, until next spring.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBIRDIE!
Mom cleaned the RVS room again today, and fed that little bat. She thinks they will have another bat by Monday. Someone called from Laurel Caverns to report a bat with a broken wing, so Jill will go to meet it tomorrow and see if we can help it. They are so precious and important to our lives all over the world. Did you know there are about 8000 kinds of mammals, and bat species make up over 2000 of them? That's right, a quarter of the mammal species on earth are types of bats. They help to keep insect populations down, pollinate some foods, and spread seeds from some fruits, depending on the species.
Okay, that's enough of the teaching moment, Bats are spooky, ooky, and have a ton of old wives tales around them, too. Let's debunk a couple of them. They will never fly into your hair, unless you are harboring bugs in it. Bats use their eyes and echolocation, so they avoid things like hair and bumping into trees. They are not blind, either, most can see as well as humans can at night. One cautionary note, bats are rabies vector species, so if you come into contact with one, be careful not to touch it with bare hands.
I hope you have a day of treats with a few tricks thrown in just to keep you on your toes. Have a great day today, and don't get sick on candy! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Marigold
Skinsis furball is a mix of manners and no manners. Depends on how eggcited she is and how many people are around. After awhile she does settle down but the food dish area is usually a tad messy and does drip water too.

Temps cooler yesterday and forecast for rain today. Claim is that most will be during the day and less at night for any trick or treaters. Hope so as the parronts like to sit outside (to avoid too much bell ringing and door knocking) and won't want to do that if wet out. Haven't fired up the heater just yet. Maybe next month, oh, guess it almost next month, heehee.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Marigold
Tell Mayo we dropped off a vote for him, okay? Mom is worried about her clematis, it all turned brown and she isn't sure if she should cut it back or not. Does your mom know? The hibiscus bushes are in great shape, but they are northern ones, so should be fine for winter. We have a wisteria that keeps coming up every spring but has yet to bloom, so mom is trying to think of a way to get rid of it for good. We can't dig out the whole root, and that's the problem. Hope you are having a great day today, Marigold. Hugs, Peppino
