  Hello Baby~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am starting a grass roots campaign for my friend Hulk #149144. I have added his avatar on the calendar page to make it easy for every bird to vote for him. He is one of my oldest friends here on the BC and I would love to see him be honored with the BOTM badge!
Hulk is a Jardine Parrot. They are one of the largest of the Poicephalus species! They are from all over Africa and were called Congo Jack parrots. An English man named Sir William Jardine took one back to England in 1849 and of course called it the Jardine parrot! I think Congo Jack is a cooler name!
Thank you for you time and I hope you will be able to get by and leave Hulk a vote everyday this month! He has always been there for every other bird who has run for BOTM so I hope we can thank him by getting him into the castle!
Enjoy your day!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Baby~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Still cooler here and still rainy. There were suppose to be thunderbooms this afternoon but it never happened.
We did lots of chores today including cleaning out the pantry again. Mom has no idea why it gets so messed up. Probably from dad since he is always looking for something he can't seem to find. It is usually right in front of him!hehehehehehe
I got bored during the pantry cleaning so I did a lot of yelling. Mom kept stopping and coming over to sit with me. I finally decided to take a nap and let her finish up.
Have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and sending big hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  HI BABY!!!
Pecked a V4U..Today my campaign blog will about the Houdini Museum..The Houdini Museum was established in 1988 at Scranton, Pa. It is in a turn-of-the-20thcentury building that has been entirely renovated.Houdini performed in Scranton and did several special challenges there. His brother, Hardeen, also appeared in Scranton and in its sister city, Wilkes Barre. Documents & letters attesting to this are on display at the museum & on its website. Houdini, performed at the Poll Theater for S.Z.Poll in Scranton, that was part of the Keith-Albee-Orpheum Circut at the time. This would become the RKO Movies Circut. The Houdini Tour, Show & Museum attraction is one of Scranton's most popular things to do and is highly rated. Stories about the Museum and its performers have been featured in recent years on television shows throughout the world. The live show at the Museum includes two of the best, nationally known magicians, Dorothy Dietrich & John Bravo(aka Ray Carter & Dick Brooks). The Houdini Museum covers Houdini's career and facts about Houdini. The Houdini Museum has national & international significance, especially since the tragic fire of an exhibit in Niagara Falls in May 1995. A part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the Magic Towne House in New York City. The Houdini Museum features memorabilia, artifacts, mannequins and films of the master magician. The Houdini Tour also includes a magic show as part of the tour...This is another point of interest to see while visiting the Pocono Region..Thank you every birdie who continue to vote for me everyday..I appreciate it very much...Have a great Tuesday....Many wing hugs to you...CYDNEY :o)

  HI BABY!!!
Pecked a V4U...Today I will be talking about the Pocono Snake & Animal Farm, Marshalls Creek....Jack Lowris founder of the long-time Pocono attraction, was a police officer in New Jersey who was fascinated with snakes..He decided to open a rattlesnake building & Lowris made his dream come true in 1969 when he built a world of snakes, monkeys, birds and other exotic animals in Marshalls Creek..With more than 100 reptiles & animals to care for the workers at Pocono Snakes & Animal farm keep a tight schedule.. The workers have a strict routine every morning they cut up fresh fruits to feed the animals and fill bottles to feed the pigs & goats..They also make sure that each animal is clean & place ready to go for lots of tourists...Walking into the farm is like walking into a jungle with animals that many have seen on television..The farm houses guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes, alligators, monkeys, a bear, wolf, turtles, a leopard, deer, goats, a mountain lion, a bobcat & more..All of the animals here at the farm are donations from the state, individuals and rescues..None of the animals are wild...At the front door desk patrons can purchase food to feed the alligators, monkeys & other animals..The goats can also be fed with a baby bottle filled with milk..Many of the animals are celebrities or known for their unique personalities & amazing stories...Shelly the 150 lb. turtle is a century old..She once appeared on the "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson"...Another amazing story Hemingway a male alligator was found in a New York City apartment & rescued by Animal Planet's own "Animal Cops" before being donated to Pocono Snake & Animal Farm...This is not a big building where they are housed but whenever passing it the parking lot is always crowded..Some people do find this a place of interest while visiting in the Poconos....Hope you all are having a nice Monday...Thank every birdie who does vote for me during my campaign to be BOTM...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

  Hello Baby, Hello Oki~
I hope you are having a perfect kind of day! I just finished some apple, cinnamon, pecan oatmeal! I must say I think this is my favorite so far! I like all the oatmeal that mom makes but the pecans were a surprise!
The rain storm we had yesterday did not help with the fire on the other side of the mountain. I guess it made it worse since it caused more wind. I feel so bad for all those people.
Mom went back to work last night and of course there was tons of work waiting for her. There is a back up person but she is in the garden and they don't want her to do anything but the garden. Kind of makes it useless to have a back up if they are not going to be able to do the work! Mom will catch up eventually.
Believe it or not, they already have the Christmas jammies out for the little ones. Mom says the baby that can wear it has not even been born yet! Talk about planning ahead! The Halloween ones are out too and all the Autumn decor. That stuff is nice to look at but I don't think anyone is ready to think about Christmas yet.
Enjoy the day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Pecked a V4U...Today my campaign blog will be about the history of the Shawnee Ski Resort, Shawnee on the Delaware, Pa...Shawnee Peak Ski Resort(elevation 2,006 feet)Is located on the north end of a long ridge that is known locally as Pleasant Mountain..Skiing on Pleasant Mountain began in the mid-1930's when skiers were granted permission by local farmers to tear down fences during the winter and use the hill for recreational skiing..The first ski trails were cut by students from nearby schools...The mountain officially opened on January 23, 1938 as the Pleasant Mountain Ski Area..The ski area featured a 1,100 foot rope tow and 500 people showed up on the first day of operation..In 1946 Russ Haggett became the general manager of the Pleasant Mountain Ski Area, a job he kept for 30 years...He added two rope tows and acquired more land for recreational development...The first chair lift was installed in 1969 and a new lodge was built 3 years later...In the mid-1970's Pleasant Mountain Ski Area's name was changed to the Shawnee Peak Ski Resort. After a year with no natural snow, the resort installed snow making in 1981...Several years later night skiing became available...As of 2010, Shawnee is a mid-sized ski area with two bases, 44 trails, 5 lifts and extensive night skiing...Also at Ski Shawnee during the months they have hold many different Festivals & Events such as: 1. Shawnee Celtic Festival - held in May 2. Shawnee Fireworks Display - held in July 3. Poconos Wurst Festival - held in July 4. Pocono Chicken Wing Off - held in August 5. Shawnee Mountain Mud Run - held in August 6. Pocono Garlic Festival - held in September 7. PRCA Rodeo & Chili Cook Off - held in September 8. Autumn Timber Festival - held in October 9.

  Hello Baby, Hello Oki~
I hope your day is going great! I've been out sitting with mom all morning and I'm having a wonderful time. I chewed on her shoelace, preened a bit. Chewed on her jeans, preened a bit. I am in a chewing, preening kind of mood today! This molt I am going through is horrendous! Mom is wondering how wild Amazons fly when they lose 4 tail feathers while molting! I can't fly so how should I know??
My play cage was all nice and clean when I came out this morning. Mom said there were so many fuzzy feathers everywhere that it took forever! When she finally finished up the cage, Merlin went over and threw up right in front of it! Hairballs!! Guess he didn't want to feel left out with all the cleaning going on!
There was suppose to be no rain this week but mom went to the car wash so of course it rained this morning! I just hope it continues on over the mountains and rains over there. There are so many fires there and they could really use some rain!
I hope you have a very fun day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a lovely day! It's been nice here so far. It's moms last day of vacation. Bummer! She has to go back tomorrow night and I am not happy about that. She tells me we will have plenty of time to spend together so not to worry.
We are still working on the Linen closet. There is lots of stuff in there! We have been able to get rid of a bunch of stuff so far and it's looking good!
We read that we are suppose to have 3 big snow storms between December and February this winter. It was in the Farmer's almanac. They were pretty right on with the summer prediction so we tend to believe them. Not looking forward to that. At least when you know ahead of time you can prepare.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for both of you!

  HI BABY!!!
Pecked a V4U...Today I will come to a conclusion of the tour of Jim Thorpe...Although there is a lot more going on there I will move on to another place of interest here in the Poconos...Hope you all are enjoying the campaign blogs....Another place you might like to visit while being in Jim Thorpe is Mauch Chunk Museum...Mauch Chunk Museum & Cultural Center is new..However some exhibits might not be completely finished...But, however there is plenty to enjoy and learn right now as Mauch Chunk presents the fascinating history of industry in America and particularly in Pa. Anthracite Region. The mining town of Mauch Chunk, now known as Jim Thorpe, is the repository for the body of the great Native American Olympian. As well as the broad coverage the museum gives to Local history. It features an exhibit on Jim Thorpe and his life, including a collection of rare photographs.Mauch Chunk is housed in the former St. Paul's Methodist Church, a beautiful red brick building constructed in 1843 a magnificent example of Victorian Ecclesiastical Architecture, the building features a high ornate ceiling.Exhibits span the ages, focusing on: 1. The Prehistory of coal 2. Lenape Indians 3. Industrial Mauch Chunk including mining 4. Canal Lock(a working model) 5. Railroads 6. Switchback Gravity Railroad(working model) 7. Local Industries 8. The Golden Age 9. The history & restoration of St. Paul's Church and much more..All told, visitors will experience history in a most enjoyable way...Jim Thorpe is the place to go if you like to shop.They have stores with just about everything you such as Antique shops, clothing, furniture, books, art, etc..Interesting in having something to eat there is a little bit of everything Italian, Chinese, Tex Mex, and American Cuisine all options.Outdoor Adventure with Kayaking, or Whitewater Rafting. Hike Glen Onoko Falls.The gorge offers some of the best Mountain Biking in the country(recently rated #3 in the country by a prominent outdoor magazine.)You can camp at Mauch Chunk Lake Park and Hickory Run State Park is about 20 minutes away as well. For the less ambitious take a train ride around the gorge it is breathtaking....Take in some history, learn about the town of Mauch Chunk(Jim Thorpe). Visit the stone churches such as St. Mark's Episcopal Church and its history. Go to the Cultural Center, tour the jail And the mansions(Harry Packer & Asa Packer). Check out a concert at the opera house..Learn how old Mauch Chunk was named after the "greatest athlete on earth."..Enjoy all the Jim Thorpe has to offer...Again I would like to thank every birdie who continues to peck a vote for me on this campaign to be BOTM...Have a great Wednesday....Many birdie wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

Take a tour of the Old Jail Museum...Wonder the old jail's cold hallways, past Cell 17 with its mysterious hand print on the wall, under the gallows on which seven of the accused Molly Maguires were put to death and down into the eerie dungeon....And don't forget to check out their new book "Ghost's of the Molly Maguires", a collection of visitors first hand accounts of strange happenings in the old jail......

Take a ride on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway...The Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway primarily uses passengers coaches that were built as early as 1917...Most trains are diesel operated, but the railroad does use steam locomotive No.425 on occasion..Regular season trains operate from the historic downtown Jim Thorpe Station.. May through December into the beautiful Lehigh Gorge State Park. Trains leave downtown Jim Thorpe to White Haven, Pa.to disembark bicyclists on the 25 mile river trail for the return to Jim Thorpe. People can take their own bike, rent on through Pocono BiKing, or take the Bike Train round-trip back to Jim Thorpe. The railroad also operates the very popular Fall Foliage Specials from Port Clinton, Pa to Jim Thorpe and return in the month of October...Hometown High Bridge Trains operate in October from Jim Thorpe Station to the 168 foot tall Hometown High Bridge Trestle... The Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway also offers other special train excursions throughout the year..You should call or visit their website for official schedules....

  HI BABY!!!
Pecked a V4U...Again I want to thank every birdie who come by and peck a vote and help me become BOTM....Have a great Sunday...My campaign blog today will be about yet another place to visit when you are in the Poconos....Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm....Quiet Valley Farm is a historic working farm that is operated as an open-air museum...The farm encompasses 100 acres of pasture, woods & fields that is located within Stroudsburg, Pa. The farm consists of a farm house, a spring house, cabin, a school house, a barn, a frame was house, fruit drying house, smoke house, ice house, storage shed & wagon shed.Not only does it provide shelter for farm animals but, it also grows a wide variety of traditional crops.This beautiful farm is a step back into Colonial Times when life was simple & self-sufficiency was more important than it is today. Quiet Valley's 14 buildings are interpreted by costumed "family" guides who share the daily routines of a thrifty & industrious Pennsylvania Dutch Family & its descendants who lived at this location from 1765 to 1913. Guided tours & demonstrations take place on a continuous basis. The mail building has a large cellar-kitchen with an earthen floor & a huge fireplace.Here visitors cam see cooking demonstrations & learn about the life of Colonial Women.The bedroom includes a tester bed(a tester is a canopy) trundle bed & a cradle.A small parlor was added just beyond this this room during the 1890's and a "modern" kitchen with iron range & dry sink can be seen in this building as well. A "farmer" guide can be seen using farm equipment of many decades ago in the big barn and spinning & weaving demonstrations take place in the "granddaddy house." Throughout the complex, the following activities can be seen on a daily basis: spinning, weaving of flax or wool, meat smoking, drying of fruits & vegetables, gardening, cooking or baking, tending of animals and Colonial handcrafts. The farm features a full range of barnyard animals, work horse, cow, pigs, sheep, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs and others and kids can touch them..Children can also enjoy a "hay Jump". Opened on selected days in Spring and Fall & on a regular schedule from late June through Labor Day, Tues - Sat 10 am - 5 pm, Sunday 12 pm - 5 pm. Closed Mondays except Labor Day.Admission : Adults $10, Seniors(62+) $9, Children(3-12) $5 & Children under 3 free. Also Picnic areas are available......This is another place of interest that many visit while in the Pocono area..Hope you all are enjoying the blogs...Many birdie wing hugs...CYDNEY

  HI BABY!!!
Pecked a V4U...Thanks to every birdie that has come by my page and pecked a V4M to help my campaign to be BOTM...Every vote is appreciated very much...Sure hope you are enjoying the campaign blogs and are finding some of interest..I am just trying to point out some things to do if you come to the Poconos on vacation or day trips...Have a great Saturday...Today I am doing part 2 of Bushkill Falls..As I have told you there is a Park fee...Also some of these things that they have to do before walking the trails also have a fee...There is a Wildlife Museum which exhibits 1.Pa. Wildlife 2. Native American 3. Story of Bushkill Falls....They have an 18 hole miniature gold course and that fee is $5 per person (includes souvenir golf ball)...They have Paddle Boat Rides $4 per person, (life jackets are required & provided)...Consider taking a run ride around the Twin Lakes in a two-person paddle boat.As you pedal forward in your paddle boat the back of your legs will get splashed by the cool water of the lake..Pretty appealing during the hot summer months. Don't want to get splashed? Feel free to pedal backwards. Either way our paddle boats are fun for all....Fishing $5 per person - No Pa.fishing license required..Bushkill Falls Mining Co. Maze 1st.Maze Run is $7 Reruns are $2...This is a fun competitive activity that lends more than just finding your way through the maze to the exit. This is a great way for everyone to sharpen their navigation skills while competing for the fastest times.There is a Mining for Gemstones but must purchase a small or large bag of mining rough. Sift contents of bag in the sluice..Also have a Children's Playground...Shopping/Gift Shops - All stores are located near entrance of the trails. Also have Picnic Area & Pavilion plus picnic tables & grills through out Bushkill Falls Park....Trails to take: 1.Green-takes about 15 min. view Main Falls to walk ..No Climbing..However there are steps 2. Yellow-takes about 45 min. to walk..View Main, Lower Gorge Falls, Laurel Glen Falls & Upper Canyon 3.Blue-takes 1 hr.& 15 min...View Pennell Falls...4.Red-this trail is for the avid hiker.In that it spans almost 2 miles includes all 8 falls and takes over 2 hrs.to hike..Tomorrow I will be talking about another place of interest to many people who visit here....Thank you all again..Many birdie wing hugs...CYDNEY :o)
