  Hi Ms TM, AKA "Bub, love from Jen Lynn
This morning the Electric Company will be coming to install our new service box thingy! That means no electricity all day long, no computer, no TV, and no heat, and on one of our coldest days of the year! We do not want a miracle, we simply want to get back to normal, and have things the way they always used be! Hopefully by tomorrow the electric grid in our home will be restored to a safe working order! Dad's nurse gave him a good numbers report yesterday, but his BP was slightly elevated, probably because of concern for the power problem in our home! We may not make it to all your pages today, but we'll be back, we promise! Have a great day, and give our love to all in your happy home, Cya tomorrow...

  Hi Bub
Let's hope the grand is on the way to recovery after getting some macaw therapy. Never fun to be sick.

Yikes! So, so cold there if single digits and wind chill of minus something? Very much opposite of our current conditions of being too warm for winter though we do enjoy it. Rather get a cooldown and more rain as still not out of the drought.

Be sure your mom is fully stocked on supplies so doesn't have to go out on the w/e!

Deep freeze coming ! It's into the 20's today and by the weekend ? SINGLE DIGITS ! brrrrrrrrr . . . time for extra blankees :) Maybe it'll be too cold for mom and dad to go out anywhere ?

They did go out last night and leave me for a while - mom decided she needed new pot holders - can you imagine ? And guess what ? She didn't find anything she liked ! Should have just stayed home with me ! I supposed that I shouldn't complain too much since she's on vacation ALL next week :)

As for the weather, I want every birdie to have nice weather very soon ... enough of this record breaking stuff.
This morning the new sofa arrived. I had to check it out and give my approval (see pics).
Tonight it's going down to the 30's brrrr. Then, if the weather people are right ... the warm up begins. I can hardly wait! I need to get some warm sun asap!

  Hi Bub,
Here's part 1

The meaning of the name “Laka” is: “Gentle, Tame”.

Aolani Name meaning & Origin is: “Beautiful Heavenly Cloud”

Hawaiian Goddesses
by Serge Kahili King

The Hawaiian concept of gods and goddesses is very different from that of Western and Near Eastern traditions, from African and Australian traditions, and from North and South American traditions. Although still different, it bears a closer resemblance to the more eclectic traditions of India, China, and Japan than with any others.

The word for god or goddess in Hawaiian is akua, whose meaning is very indeterminate. It was applied to the spirit, i.e., the invisible motive or creative essence, of anything and everything. Therefore, the Creator, the wind, the first aspect of the full moon, a high-ranking chief, a slave, a ghost, and that which causes a motor to work might all be called akua in certain contexts. For the most part, though, the word was commonly applied to forces, persons, and things which had a lot of mana, i.e., power or influence. What this means is that, when we hear or read stories of an entity such as Pele, the volcano goddess, we can never be certain whether the story is about the spirit of a natural phenomenon, the human ancestor of a particular family line, or both, or neither.

Another important feature of Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that they are often completely unrelated. To people familiar with the Greek Olympians as a family opposing the Titans as a family, or the Norse Aesir against the Vanir, relations between Hawaiian gods and goddesses seem incomprehensible. As Martha Beckwith says in Hawaiian Mythology, "It seems to me therefore probable that different immigrant families brought with them the gods and ritual familiar to them." Unlike the Hindu system, which at least tries to form the gods and goddesses of many different peoples, times, and places into an integrated whole, the Hawaiians seldom bothered to do so, allowing vastly different traditions to exist side by side in happy chaos. And in the few instances where some integration was attempted, it was always very limited in scope.

  Part 2
Part 2
One more feature to be mentioned about Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that the more power they were assumed to have, the more different forms they were thought to take at will. The most powerful could take forms that were either human, animal, vegetable, mineral, or other. The god Kamapua'a, for example, could turn into a human, a pig, a fish, a type of grass, or even the rain. In Hawaiian these forms are called kino lau (many bodies).

In this article we are putting our focus on Hawaiian goddesses, and since there are so many of them, we will only look at seven of the most important ones. Even then, only a small amount of information will be given for each one. In addition to information available from various written sources, such as Beckwith's Hawaiian Mythology, I will add information given me by members of the Kahili family who taught me their traditions pe At various times, then, I have taught about the goddesses in different ways, and that has led to some confusion on the part of students. So, for healing purposes only at a beginner level for understanding and using the concept of Hawaiian goddesses, here is the Ola 'Ana Papakahi o Na Akua Wahine Hawai'i, "The First Level Organization of Hawaiian Goddesses" in order of attributions and associations of name, principle, color, element, and primary function.

Hina: 'Ike, White, Water, Awareness (Knowledge)

Haumea: Kala, Red, Stone, Freedom (Release)

Pele: Makia, Orange, Fire, Focus (Energy)

Hi'iaka: Manawa, Yellow, Wind, Presence (Purpose)

Laka: Aloha, Green, Plants, Love (Compassion)

Kapo: Mana, Blue, Animals, Power (Ability)

Uli: Pono, Purple, People, Success (Effectiveness)

That’s all for today folks, sorry I couldn’t find a spooky story to tell you, but I’m still looking.

Thank you for all the love and support for my birdie of the month campaign.

Happy Po ‘akolu (Happy Wednesday). Humpty humpty humpty away until Friday comes.

  Hi TiaMaria
pink eye can take a long time to clear up and you feel miserable the whole time.

we haven't been on BC either because our dad is having a lot of health issues and as soon as he hears mom go to use the computer he needs her for something. mom then loses her traIN of thought, which isn't hard for her to do, while helping dad. tonight was better because he seems to be feeling better. it did get cold out. i think its 18 right now but at least we didn't get much snow.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  Hi Tiamaria
Bub and sweet Aunt Sandy!
This morning had a bright sunny start to it but soon faded into a dark snowy/drizzly type of day and it got colder as the day wore on.The highs for the day were 34 the lows of 25 and its 30 right now at 9:00pm.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Dad never came home last night because by the time they were finished with snow removal it was time for him to begin his regular hours.So he stayed at work.He called Mom around 4:30am so she would have a fresh thermos of coffee ready for him and some coffee creamer when he came by in a half hour or so.Mom got it ready and he grabbed it and took off again back to work.Mom then left us both home here while she took off to Nana's to pay their Comcast bill and to run some errands.When Mom got to Nana's house she tried to fix her heat box and cleaned out the filter and then unplugged it until they got back from their errands.Mom and Nana got in Mom's car and they went to Falmouth to pay Comcast first and from there they went to The Dollar Tree where Nana got some things she needed,from there they went to Stop&Shop in Falmouth,then they went back to Mashpee where they went to Asia (Chinese)for lunch,Nana got shrimp and mixed veggies and Mom got hunan shrimp with veggies and they both got brown rice to go with it.From there they went back to Nana's house and Mom finished fixing the heat box and got it going again and checked out the heat box that Nana had in the Bird Room,she got that going and then unpacked Nana's groceries and helped put them away.Nana made them some tea and they had some cookies that Nana made and then Mom left to go home as it was after 4:00pm and skin sis was coming over with Peepers and Celine so Mom could keep them here with us until after her surgery was over.She's having her other hip operated on for hip display sure and has to be outside the Boston area at 5:30am tomorrow morning and its a 2 and a half hour drive from here and could be longer because of all the snow.Mom came home and unpacked the car,put all the groceries away,cleaned our cages and fed us our snacks as our dad came home and made himself some popcorn and went right up to bed.After being home for several hours he came down looking for dinner and Mom made him a cheese omelet with pan fried cinnamon and sugar toast.Then in the middle of it all skin sis came over with Peepers and Celine and Mom had brought the deck cage into our room to warm up so they could stay in there and then Mom found some feed dishes and a water bottle for them and got that all set up with the pellets that skin sis brought with her for them.Mom is hoping that dad won't have to go to work until his normal hours tomorrow morning.Mom is hoping to get some sleep and time to relax.It was snowing when Mom was driving home tonight and we don't want to see anymore of that.Please forgive us for being so quick with a c/p as by the time skin sis left all teary eyed and upset and Mom got dinner a

  Heya, Miss Bub!
Sure hope your Mom is careful around that pink eye. And feel so bad for Liv, having that and a stomach virus. Definitely not fun for her at all. Hope she is feeling better soon!

It is 8 here, with a feels like -1. The sun was out so it was deceptive. Looked so much warmer than 16, which was our high today. Grandpa said it was super bitter out there today when he ran for his paper. Mom decided to stay in today--as the sales start tomorrow and will be going to Meijer (good stuff on sale) and might hit Kohl's to see if they have a nice set of towels and bath rug that will work together. The 30% off coupon is nice too. Darn things are sooo expensive! So it is a nice quiet day here, and I am gonna get a nap in on nice warm Mom.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hey Miss TiaBub!
Oh...poor Livi! That is just rotten for her! I like little girls so much. Whenever a young female comes into our home, I give a great big wolf whistle & add a little Elvis impersonator & say, "Hey, baby!" Mom cracks up laughing because I happen to be the biggest flirt you'd ever see. However, when the gran'kids were infants, I was terrified of them! I'd make a big ole' scene flapping around in my cage like I was trying to escape a huge predator! Hey, I couldn't help it! Newborn humans are U.G.L.Y.!!! And THEY have the never to say birdie babies are ugly. SHEESH!

It has been crazy time at our house today. Mom’s been helping me make Valentines for all the greyt birdies that I know. Then she’s been working on tallying up all the receipts, etc. for the “Tax Man”. The Beatles have a greyt song about THAT guy! I consider myself a lucky bird not to have to pay taxes. For some reason, if there ever was a “Tax Bird”, I think it would be a vulture. They can scare you by just one look. Much less, by what they like to eat. Sam shivers.

Anyway, every bird have a good evening & STAY WARM!! It is really blowing here at our house. I’m having to hang on to my perch extra hard & I’m INSIDE! Take care, now!

Hugs for all,
SamIAm

Mom had an appointment this morning to get her feathers trimmed. I sure hope this keeps her home and not flying around like she has been doing lately.

  Hi Tia Maria--
Bub sounds like a perfectly good name to me! In fact, my Mom calls me Bubbie all the time! She also calls me Baby and Rosifer and Bratula, and once in a while she calls me Rosie! Hee Hee

*****
Sorry I and my fiblings have been so long absent from the BC...The Old Guy spent a week in the hospital, and then Mom had to deal with Auntie and Hubby in Law visiting for more than a week...She is just now beginning to get her act together...it didn't help that Rosie just about got her toe chewed off by the lovebirds (again)...and that she is busily trying to chew the keys off the computer while Mom types. Rosie is just back from the vet now, and the vet said she is going to lose a toe, but they are not going to cut it off unless there are complications.

The rest of the flock is fine....Sherman and Peabody are pretty much encased in vinyl right now since Rosie won't stay away from them. The finches are pretty much ok except that Phoenix is developing a crossed bill...we kinda think that is from an injury he had before he was rescued, but it's looking like he may be the next one to visit the vet....good thing the Moms found a good one. Anyway, as long as Phoenix keeps eating, things are good, but ....

Please excuse the cut and paste....Mom will be back as soon as she can....and Rosie has a stint in the Kissing Booth coming up, so that should help!

Hugs and Kisses to all,

Tooth

  Hello Tia~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. We are finishing up laundry and getting mom ready to go back to work tonight.
McKenzie is feeling happy today. I can tell because she keeps getting into trouble!hehehehehehe
Mom went to Costco yesterday. The problem with that is trying to find places to put the stuff. We have a case of applesauce sitting on the computer desk and cereal on the breakfast bar. The paper towels are on the dryer and there is a case of Starbucks White Chocolate Frap on the file cabinet. Those are for Jennifer. The freezer and pantry are full also. I know it sounds like a lot but mom only goes there every 2 or 3 months. Depends on how long that case of toilet paper lasts! There is a really big bag of broccoli in the fridge. Mom just won't give up! She knows I'm not going to eat it but since she is going to make me some chop I have a feeling she will sneak it in there. I'll just eat around it!hahahahaha
It's almost like Spring here today! I feel so bad for all those out east who are having to put up with snow. Wish you could all be here with me!

Guess your mom is happy with the Broncos win! Mom thought it was a pretty boring game. They went to friends' to watch it since our satellite tv doesn't get the US commercials. The doritos ads were pretty good and the hot dogs.
We are still having cold weather. It was 59 last nite. Mom had two blankets on the bed! We have been stuck inside forever! Lots of tv and mom time though! Dad is going golfing tomorrow but another storm is coming in so we'll see. Last nite the lights kept going on and off and on and off in the middle of the nite. It was strange! There was also a shooting star show! I think the aliens were arriving! Hehehe!

McKenzie still has to take the mange medicine for another month even though the mites are dead. She got her last shot also. Mom had planned on taking her to Petco after the vet visit but the spots where they did the scrapings to check the mange was bleeding so mom didn't want to take her around other pets and people. She is not contagious but the spots she has makes people nervous. We have to wait for her obedience classes because of that and she can not be spayed until it's cleared up since anesthesia can cause stress and put us back to the beginning with the mange! Since she is now on her 3rd month of meds, we don't want to go backwards!
This is moms last night of vacation! Bummer!! We had a nice time but sure do wish it could have lasted longer!
I hope your evening is perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Tia Maria
Hope the grands pink eye goes away soon.
Today started out ok but by afternoon it was really cloudy and the rain came. That is ok but its suppose to turn into snow and we might get 1-3” if the weather guesser guesses right LOL. Its suppose to get lots colder too. The two grands that are the same age were both home from school sick today. Sounds like a touch of the flu for both of them and they haven’t even been around each other. I was sitting with mom on the back of the couch for a long time this evening. Mom decided it was time to take a potty break so she sat me on the wastebasket. Well mom threw a pie pan in the wastebasket and all that shiny stuff I wouldn’t co operate. I got tired of sitting there and flew back to my condo. I don’t know why the humans throw scary things in the waste basket like that! “My heart smiles just thinking of you.“ Leaving a vote for you my friend~~Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus- & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hi Bub
Not much going on here today. Mom abandoned me as usual to go to her stupid gym and work out and then dance around doing zumba. And she stayed for the full hour of zumba this time. She stopped on the way home to pick up a script, and it turned out she needed to have her new card for the secondary insurance with her. She didn't think she had it, so she said she would come back tomorrow. Then when she got home, Dad reminded her she put it in her purse to see the doc last week. She had it with her all the time! Not really happy with herself.

Anyway I got her for a while before her shower and after. Even though it is actually hot here (80), there was no sunbath again today because of the wind gusts. They are blowing from 25-40 MPH, so Mom is not about to take me outside. Supposed to die down this afternoon, so hopefully I will get out there tomorrow which is supposed to be even warmer.

  Hi TiaMaria,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. Mom went for X-Rays for her knees and left foot & ankle. Mom has to bring them to her Orthopedic Dr. when she gets the results & makes the appt. She already knows she has pretty bad Osteoarthritis there & every where else. Her foot & ankle has that & also an old fracture & a spur! But they want to compare to her last X-Rays back in 2013. We shall see. The only think Mom doesn't like about her Ortho Dr. is that they only do one shot at a time. SERIOUSLY??? She knows many people who's Dr. does both knees at once!! Oh well!

Mom did watch some of the Kitten & Puppy Bowls but missed the Fish Bowl. She watched the damn Super Bowl for the Half Time Show and to see the Clydesdale Horses & they weren't on. Mom said there was one commercial with the start of the Horses heads & went right into other things!! There were a few good commercials but most of them Mom wasn't impressed. She did enjoy the Half Time Show though & of course Lady Gaga did an excellent job! Okay, hope You and Mom are having a good day. We hope she doesn't catch that Pink Eye either! Here's a vote for you, Cutie. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hi Bub
Sounds like the Superbowl went with mom's wishes.
Didn't check the type of weather you've had--we were warmish and are going cold again. Still not much by way of snow. In fact today, there is standing water.
I let mom play catch with me twice today. I even threw the ball back to her! She lays on the floor and rolls the ball to me. I either push the ball back with my beak or attempt to pick it up and throw it to her. It is really just for her--I don't like the ball.

  Hi Tia
Happy Chinese New Year Everybirdie! It's the Year of the Monkey, I wonder if that gives us all a chance to act like monkeys all year long? Congratulations to the Broncos, too. We didn't watch the game, but Lady Gaga did one great job with the National Anthem, and Beyonce did a fine halftime show. We tuned in to that to see Santana play a little.
Mom finished the Pterosaur book, watched the videos from the AMNH website, watched the Puppy Bowl, and even turned on the Fish Bowl for a few minutes.
Mom cleaned the mammal nursery today, with 3 squirrels and 2 possums, all adults. None of them was ready to go outside yet, though, they each need some extra care. The little flying squirrel has a stash of around 2 pounds of nuts that she's keeping in a pillowcase in her cage. Everyone is letting her keep them. We think when she gets released, she'll have a stash to start with in the spring.
Someone brought in a fennec fox! These guys are desert foxes who live in the Sahara. He said he found it on his back porch, didn't know what it was, and brought it to us. The poor little thing is emaciated and dehydrated, as well as blind in one eye. They are keeping him in the treatment room for now and trying to bulk him up a little. If he survives, we think he'll be going to the zoo or to some kind of sanctuary. It makes mom so angry when people take wild animals and try to make them pets. There are enough dogs, cats, and other animals who make good pets already.
It's supposed to snow here tonight through Wednesday, but we'll see what happens. Those guys are wrong probably more than they are right. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

PS: Falco and Peppino thank you for their votes.

  Hey Tia
Yesterday I ate so much I thought I was going to pop heehee!!! Lots of snacks and salad along with jello.I love jello!
When the game was over and everyone left we decided to get into mischief so I escaped lockdown and Jedi,Snowflake and me chewed holes in my mommy's new bath towel set while Panther stood behind my daddy and bit his butt every time he turned his back on him...
It felt good to get out of lock down and do what a bird does best,Mischief!!!

Have an awesome day
Love your lil yellow buddy

  Hey Tia
Happy Monday!!! We are looking at weather that's too warm once again...
Mommy couldn't stand it yesterday and in the next few days it will be warmer...
This is supposed to be winter and we are wondering what happened to it???

This is quite ironic on how mommy starts to get better because the heat went away and now it's back.All 88 degrees of it!!!

This is so not right for us California birds!!!!

Other than that we had an awesome BBQ with green chili and Steak along with blue cheeseburgers and BBQ beans with fry bread.Yummy!

Have an awesome day and don't forget to vote on the milonga page!

Love your buddy

  Hi Bub.
It' Popeye.
Mom and dad had a good time at mom's brother's house. He BBQ'd a brisket and made BBQ beans and potato salad. Mom and dad got there late with the eggs. They arrived after everyone had already eaten. But the eggs went fast.
Again, mom and dad were really not impressed with the commercials. Last week there was a TV show on, showing the funniest Super Bowl commercials and although there were a few funny ones, the new ones didn't come close to the finniest ones.
Today will be clear and warm, with a high of 87 and a low of 59. Not sure what's going on today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye
