  Hi JeTTa
It's warming up now I think. It will be in the 70's like it should have been. I'll take it!
We had a nice sunny day of 73. My parronts went to the beach for a while. Mom said the ocean was cold. Later, I went outside to listen to the birds and get some sun on my feathers. It felt good. Looks like we'll have the same for the weekend.
Hugs

  Hi JeTTa,
Today I'm gonna talk about Valentines Day.

Valentines Day is a special day for love and friendship. It is celebrated on February 14th.

Many years ago people believed there lived a kind man named Saint Valentine. Valentine's Day is named after him. He was the patron of lovers and was friends with many children. Children would give him letters and flowers to show their love. Perhaps that's how the custom of giving valentine cards began. People also thought that on the same date birds chose their mates. Some young people wanted to choose their sweethearts by picking a name from a jar.

Today different kinds of valentine cards are given. There are sweet and loving valentines. . . . And silly ones too.

People have always believed that love comes from the heart. A sweetheart is also called a valentine too. Some admirers give their valentines flowers on Valentine's Day..... And others give boxes of candy in the shape of a heart. There are cakes and candies in the shape of a heart, too. Some even have printed messages on them.

Valentine's Day has been so commercialized to the point where everything you see in the store is full of heart candies to stuffed animals with hearts and messages and even balloons too.

A mere happy Valentine's Day would suffice for most people and birdie friends.

So with that in mind, an early Happy Valentine's Day to you all, my sweetheart friends! :)

I love you always and forever.

I thank you for all the votes and support for my BOTM campaign run.

Here's an early Valentine vote for you.

With love from Hawaii.

  Hi JeTTa
Mom had a really bad day yesterday. On the way home from her Dr appt, mom put the window down to pay the Turnpike toll & the window would not go back up. It was 20° and she almost froze driving home. She couldn't wait to get home & get warm. She no sooner walked in the door & the furnace quit working. Mom got out the electric heaters & put 2 of them by my house and kept me nice and toasty warm. The furnace didn't get fixed until this afternoon, but it's working fine now!

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote

My crazy MOM would really appreciate you ordering SNOW for her.
Today is colder, but not too bitter. Mom said she shoveled a whole INCH of snow by late afternoon. There was no new snow this morning. We are beginning to think we may finally get SNOW at Easter.
Mom took my collar off when I asked her this morning, now I'm avoiding people cause I LIKE when it is off. Zippy is still quite hungry and upset when she does not have company. She especially wants skinbro to give her skritches.

  Hello Jetta~
I hope you are having a great day! I see no reason why the happiness bird could not be Grey! I have no idea why they picked a blue bird for the job. When you say I'm blue, doesn't that mean you are sad??? So how can a sad bird be the happiness bird! Green would be a better choice but Grey is cool too!

  Hi Jetta
This weekend bird enthusiasts from around the world will become citizen scientists for a few days during the 19th annual Great Backyard Bird Count, which is happening this year February 12-15.During this four-day event, which is organized by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the National Audubon Society and Bird Studies Canada, people will be headed outdoors to count their local birds in the name of science.The goal of the count is to give scientists a better understanding of bird populations and distribution during the winter. The data collected can help them answer questions about how they’re being affected by factors like disease, development and climate change and how the timing of migrations may change over the years, in addition to offering insight about where conservation efforts need to be focused to protect species at risk.
The Great Backyard Bird Count first launched in 1998 and involvement has grown exponentially over the years. Last year more than 140,000 people from more than 100 countries participated, counting 18,726,079 individual birds from 5,090 different species. The total resulted in what organizers called “the most detailed four-day snapshot of global bird populations ever undertaken.”
This year organizers are encouraging more people to join. They believe the unusual weather patterns associated with El Niño may have a significant impact on birds being spotted.
“We’ve seen huge storms in western North America plus an unusually mild and snow-free winter in much of the Northeast,” said Audubon chief scientist Gary Langham. “And we’re seeing birds showing up in unusual places, such as a Great Kiskadee in South Dakota, as well as unseasonal records like Orchard Oriole and Chestnut-sided Warbler in the Northeast. We’re curious to see what other odd sightings might be recorded by volunteers during this year’s count.”
While organizers note odd sightings may be exciting, gathering data on common birds is just as important to see how they’re faring.
“Citizen-science projects like the Great Backyard Bird Count are springing up all over the world,“More and more, scientists are relying on observations from the public to help them gather data at a scale they could never achieve before. The GBBC is a great way to get your feet wet: you can count birds for as little as 15 minutes on one day or watch for many hours each day at multiple locations–you choose your level of involvement.”
Participating is easy, and free, and is open to people of all skill levels. Experts are being encouraged to help fledge newcomers and there are plenty of tools for those starting out to help identify local birds.

  Hi JeTTa,
Well this morning was cold by my standards and in the high 50's to 60's and mom had all the windows closed. Gee, I think Mother Nature has run a muck or something!

Here is our Hawaiian lesson for today, I will look for a spooky story tomorrow.

Today is Tuesday the ninth of February.
Tuesday = Po ‘alua (po aloo ah)
February = Pepeluali (pep ay loo ali)
Ninth = ‘eiwa (ay va)
Yes = ‘ae (eye)
No = ‘a ‘ole (ah-oh-lay)
Smart = akamai (ah-ka-my)
House = hale (ha-lay)
To repeat = hana hou (ha-na- ho)
To go = hele (hey lay)
To come = hele mai (hey-lay my)
To go cruising = holoholo (ho-low-ho-low)
The sea = Kai (ky) the ocean Makai (ma-kai)
Prohibited, taboo, forbidden = Kapu (ka-pooh) to keep out
Child, offspring Keiki (kay-kee)
Teacher Kumu (koo-moo) Hula Teacher Kumu Hula (koo-moo hoo la)
Sky, the heavens, heavenly Lani (la-nee)

Thank you all for your continued votes and support.

Sending you all big ole Hawaiian hugs!

  Hi JeTTa
It's Popeye.
Mom went to the police station so dad got a lot of stuff done. He fixed the music speakers in the bedroom (there are wireless music speakers in each room of the house). He got more papers sorted out and shredded. He also re-wrapped his leg. Bob called around 3pm and wanted to go to Golden Corral for dinner. They picked up mom around 5pm and drove to the restaurant. The place was packed. They were able to get a seat right away but it seemed that everybody was walking in the opposite direction. Dad said that he now knows what a spawning salmon feels like. One good thing about a buffet being crowded is that the food doesn't sit around for very long so it was fresh and hot. Mom, dad and Bob left the restaurant stuffed to the gills. If you leave Golden corral and are still hungry, it's your own fault.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 91 and a low of 61. The humidity is also very low.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

What the Awk is going on here??? Today we are having very unseasonable hot weather...
99 Degrees.Not good!!! Us California birds are going to fry!!!

My flock and family wait all year for the cool weather and we get a tease!!!

A lot of birds say we are lucky but what they don't know is that we live in the central dessert where it's the hottest.

My mommy is supposed to put color on her head feathers today.Hopefully she gets it done.She doesn't like coloring her feathers but someones got to do it!!!!
