  Hi TIA
Not a thing today for us to o. Kind of on the cool side, low now, 42. BUT, there is a bird show tomorrow over in Largo, which is south of Tampa, and of course, I am allowing pops and Mom to attend. It's not one of the better shows, but still, it's a show, and they just have to go. Squak...

Come visit me, Tweet & Squak.

  Hi Tia
Thanks for stopping over.
It was sunny today but no pool for us. I'm sitting on my perch wearing my flip flops and waiting for the warm weather. They say we'll have 60's (62 to 65) for another week, so sad. Even the plants aren't happy with too much rain and cold. I think we have to move further south, maybe St Thomas ... LOL!
Hugs

  Hiya Bub!
Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

Love and Aloha,

Laka Aolani, BOTM Candidate

HAPPY TGIF DAY
this is not an infomercial. mom was very excited when she found this website. tired of being in a culture of waste and contributing to the massive landfill dilemmas. remember when products from the 50's lasted forever and if you are lucky enough to still own any chances are they are still working. now their is a website that only stocks products that guarantee they will last a lifetime
Tired of replacing stuff? Buy Me Once solves that problem. i suggest you check it out. they don't carry everything and are interested in know about things you think are excellent products.

all the compnieson this website stand by their products.

  Hi Tiamaria
Bub and sweet Aunt Sandy!
Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix,then she got a call from my dad,he's been calling Mom all night long,to tell her that she should be staying home today and not going out as the weather is really bad out there.It was pouring rain all night and has been since all day yesterday.The wind is really strong,moving the branches of the trees all the way down and up.The rain has since changed to snow and everything is getting covered with white heavy wet snow,its already getting icy out there and the temperatures are going to drop which will make everything treacherous on the roads.Our highs for the day are 35 with the lows of 24 and right now its 32.It's a very dark as night day here,dismal,dreary and windy.Skin sis called to tell Mom that they took her off the floral arrangements(she's a florist)and have her on the registers as all the silly people are flooding in to buy groceries in the storm.You would think they would stay home in such hazardous weather conditions.Dad already told Mom a car slid off the road and went into the woods.Our end of town is the worst he told us,he's been out driving around inspecting the roads his fellow employees have been plowing and salting.They changed the forecast from 1-3 inches to 3-5 inches and its snowing so fast and furious here and the wind is making the view so hard to see anything but white outside the windows.It will be another dark boring day here while Mom works around the house but she's home with us and we're happy!
Mom had just sat down to finish more of our notes a little before 4:30pm when all of a sudden everything went down,no power and Mom had to hurry and shut the computers off.The house quickly started to get cold and Mom ran into our room,it was getting really dark and grabbed us and wrapped us up in Dixie's blanket and put her coat on top of that.Mom tried using the landline phone to call EverSource to tell them that we had no power and the phone wouldn't work.Mom had no way to communicate with anyone as the cordless phones don't work when the power is out.Its a good thing that Nana called Mom as skin bro was trying to get in touch with Mom and he called Nana.Nana then had to him that I had no power and was having a problem with the phone.He finally called Mom,skin bro usually communicates with Mom thru IM but of course Mom had to shut down both computers before there was a major problem.He was having a hard time getting home from work with all the plows on the road,quite a number of accidents and police cars etc blocking the roads off,a car went into the woods and another was a roll over on the expressway and another accident was on a road nearby here.Our dad called and when Mom told him we were in the dark he told Mom to get us under a blanket and get her coat on and keep us warm on the couch.Skin sis was trying to get into Mom's driveway with her friend(who was driving and having a problem with his car)and couldn't b

  Hi Tia Maria
That is good should have enough time to do the crystal project then and good starting early enough.
This morning mom and I washed clothes and sheets and then we dusted and swept up the floor. I supervised from her shoulder and know she would of not done as good of a job with out my help. When mom was all done with that she got my lunch and then started cleaning the refrigerator and the freezer on the frig too. There was lots of nuts up in the freezer and other goodies that I kept trying to get my beak into. Once that was all cleaned out mom started taking all the shelves out and every thing on the shelves. By then dad kept coming into the kitchen and being in moms way too. Mom suggested he take me and go in some other room so she could get done LOL. Finally it was all done and put back together again even with mine and dads help LOL. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Heya, Miss Bub!
Today Mom went to her mechanic as she found some type of bracket under the car. It could have been from the owners parking in her spot for a short time, or feel off something, but since it was sort of under the car, near the muffler, she figured she better get it checked. They could not find anything there. As long as she was there and they were not busy, she got an oil change and then went to get popcorn at the apple orchard store, and then ran to Meijer for grapes and bison--they had ground bison! She loves the stuff, so I know that we are gonna have some yummy bison burgers. Panther and his flock can relate how healthy bison is, we are sure.

Then she came home and we had a lovely afternoon together. The best!

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi TiaBub
Well, Mom went to the GI doc yesterday, and as expected she will need to have an endoscopy. He also wants to put in a small wireless device that measures pH to monitor her acid for 2-3 days, but Mom is pretty sure the insurance people will not approve that. It is very leading edge, and insurance is always trailing edge.

It was warm enough for a sunbath today (73), but the wind is absolutely howling out there. I do not like the wind, so I am staying inside. It is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow and for the next week or so. Surely this wind will die down, and I will be able to catch some rays.

Today was the last day to enter the pic contest for the Valentine's Milonga. Entries will be closed in a couple of hours, but we have some wonderful pics entered, eggspecially in the Couples category. You can see the names of the entries now, and we will put up the pics by this evening. We are still missing one pic, but hopefully will have it in time.

  Hi Tia
You can use a sponge, mom did that a few times at school. What other types of crystals will she grow? Mom's classes did salt and sugar, but you really have to super saturate the water for it to be successful.
We just got our electric meter replaced. The guy told mom our power would be out for 10 seconds, so mom shut down the computer and waited. He just drove away, and the power never went off. Mom is going to have to see if the new meter is out there.
We had a few snow flurries this morning, but it's all clear and sunny now. It's supposed to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, too, but today's high is only around 38. It's been a mild winter so far.
This morning mom and Asmita, another volunteer, had the Runs to clean. That is an area where some of the education animals live, and there are some rehab patients in there too. The education animals in there are the turkey vultures, Sid, Vince, and Tony, and the 5 turtles. There are also some snapping turtles in there, a beautiful male mallard, a porcupine, and a broad winged hawk. It's always an interesting place to clean, because you never know who's going to be in there.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sister, but she's ours for the rest of the day. We put some of our latest reads on the library page for anyone who's interested. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

It's Popeye.
Dad had an early appointment at the wound center yesterday so we were unable to blog with all of you. Sorry about that. Dad's leg continues to improve. Dad is having only a small amount of pain now. In fact, if he's busy with stuff he forgets all about it.
Mom and dad went to the movies yesterday and saw "The Good Dinosaur". What a wonderful movie! The animation was incredible and the story line was beautiful. Even dad got a little misty eyed. After the movie they went to Costco to pick up some stuff for dinner and some already cooked and pealed eggs. Mom and dad are making deviled eggs to take to mom's brother's house for a Super Bowl Sunday BBQ.
Today will be clear, with a high of 75 and a low of 51. No more rain in sight for at least another week.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.

  Hi, Bub
Sounds like your mom and the grand are starting very early on the project but that's good as never know how long it takes to get the crystals to grow. Be interesting to have the variety and colors and best to not have any chance of chemical smell near you. Mom never has us out if cooking is going on. We can smell it and want our share but like you something about hot and birds not mixing.

It's Friday ! That means it's almost the weekend :) Even better ? Mom has just next week and then it's mid-winter break - a whole week off ! She enjoys this one lots cause there's nothing much to do but relax and play (with me of course !)

School spirit day so mom has to find her gold sweater this morning (school colors are blue and gold) . . . the kids have just a half day and then it's the faculty meeting. Hopefully there isn't too much on the agenda and she'll be home early !

The weather is still mild - a little chillier and the weather guessers are talking a dusting for Tuesday - but nothing big ! Don't mind old man winter so much like this !

Growing crystals sounds like fun ! Mom remembers doing that ! And how amazing that the grand's school does science fairs in the younger grades - mom's district doesn't start them till 5th . . .

mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave me a nice shower and then bow dried me. my feather feel very soft now and i spent about an hour preening myself after wards.

  Wow! That Is Amazing Your Good Momma Knows How...
....to grow crystals! My Mom is a wiz at growing flowers but she could never ever grow rocks!! I didn't know chemicals would make crystals but when I think about it, sure they could! Doing those around you, however, could be perilous! I don't want to even think that would EVER happen! Too scary.

I DO know a fun "science project" that could be done around you without making you sick. It is a "tooth/teeth" study. You see, eggshells are made up of the same stuff that human teeth are. You take some eggshells & wash them really good. You only need 1/2 the shell. You fill 4 or more small containers with water, milk, soda(like Coke or Pepsi), fruit juice, tea, coffee, & whatever else you can think of to soak the eggshells in. For 2 wks., the student must observe & write down their findings as to what is happening to the eggshells. You'd be shocked to see what soda & fruit juice does to eggshells, which means that it is doing that to people's teeth, too! That might do that to our beaks if we stuck them into stuff we shouldn't be sticking them. Like rum balloons, let's say....
Sam looks around guiltily.

I'm sorry you've been in lockdown. I have been too since Mom is doing all this wedding stuff & cleaning & making room for guests for her daughter's wedding in July. She is coming home from Sydney, Australia to get married to her fiancé. This March she will have been gone for 5yrs. over there. She will officially be an Australian since she's worked there for that length of time. Australia recognizes dual citizenship but I don't know if the USA does or not. The last time I heard, they don't. Mom wishes she could come back here to live, but she has a feeling that may not happen. Seems daughter is wanting to have a baby soon after the marriage & do you know when women have a child is Australia, they are EXPECTED to take 18 months off for having a baby! I don't know if that's paid leave or just the guarantee that their job is waiting for them, but either way, it's tons better than the USA!! Here, a woman is lucky to get a few weeks off!

Good luck with the crystal growing. It sounds like a lot of fun. Maybe your good Momma will video-chat with you while she's there doing the crystals! That way you could supervise without breathing any nasty fumes! I'd bet you'd be a natural at it! Really!

  Heya, Miss Bub!
Oh, now that sounds like a lot of fun making those crystals. Though with the chemicals, it is probably better over at Livi's house. Mom agrees about hot water and birds, too!

Mom and I had a nice quiet day here. She is excited as the website she was working on is now up and running on the internet. It is not done yet, but just the fact that it is uploaded and functional is greyt. And the guys she did it for are happy with it. Gotta admit, she loves it too. Hopefully it will get the rest of the information in it and can be working to help bring in business for them. Hope so.

Lots of sun today, but gosh, it was cold out. 29 is not what it looked like out there...but was. I took a bath--a huge one as it was nice and warm in the apt. Got water everywhere. Got a towel off and a blow dry. Life is good!!

  Hi Tiamaria
Bub and sweet loving Aunt Sandy!
What a wonderful sweet caring Mom you have to go and help Livi with her science project!I'll bet Livi is so eggcited to be spending all that time with Aunt Sandy and will treasure her time with her for years to come!Its good that they won't be working with those chemicals at your house and will be working on them at her house instead!
Another dark,dreary,dismal rainy day here.Our highs for the day will be 53 the lows of 35 and its 54 right now.After Mom got dad off to work,she got us up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us a good breakfast that Nana sent home for us of spaghetti and meatballs!It was quite a nice change from our usual bean mix.Mom will be working on making zucchini pizza and getting some more of the linen closet cleaned out as its really beginning to get so messy.There are so many things that have to be taken out of there.We get to have Mom for today and even though she'll be busy getting more chores done,we're just happy she's here with us!My dad just called and told Mom that he's got to go to work at 3:00am Friday morning to prepare for the snow storm that we're supposed to be getting.So that means a fast night for my dad,he's got to come home from work,have dinner and shower and go right to bed in order to get up for 2:00am.Mom will make sure he has fresh sandwiches made and his lunch cooler box is filled with things to last till he gets home on Friday night(hopefully).
Other than that its going to be a nice boring day here with Mom and we can't complain about that!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and vote#4,491!Loving you always and forever,Dixie&Flock and Mom Rose too!

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hello Tia~
I hope you had a fun day! Sorry you were on lockdown today! It's happened to me too and I don't like it much! I hope your mom brought you back a treat at least!! It makes it easier to deal with being in solitary if you have a treat to look forward to!
Sounds like crystal making will be fun! It's cool for you mom to help out like that! She is one special lady!
Not much happened today. There was lots of puppy duty time today. McKenzie got into a lot of trouble today! I guess that is all part of being a puppy!!
I decided she looked hungry so I started throwing seed and pellets down for her. Mom said it was a really bad idea but I kept going. Mom would sweep it up and by the time she put it in the trash I was throwing more down for her!! I thought I was being helpful but I guess mom didn't see it that way!
I hope your evening is wonderful!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Tia Maria
That is great that your mom will be helping the grand to make crystals!
Mom has been making the suet for the wild birds and dad has two holders down on the trail he puts it in about every other day. Well things were going good and the wild birds were enjoying it and the other day a limb was broken down and the one suet holder was empty and on the ground. Dad got the one tractor and got in the bucket of it and went up high and hung the feeder. Well today he went down to check and here is was down on the ground again and empty. Dad thinks it’s a raccoon stealing the wild birds food so now he is going to put it up in a different area and see how that works. Poor birds probably arent getting much of it but guess the raccoon has to eat too LOL. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

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

  Hi TiaMaria
Well, it is very sunny here, but not warm enough for a sunbath with a high of only 65 degrees. Tomorrow is supposed to hit 71, but it will be cloudy. Who knows? However the weekend onward it will be sunbath city for at least a week-10 days!! Not a drop of rain in sight though, and since Feb is normally So Cal's wettest month of the year this is not good. Where did El Nino go? Come back, we need you!!

More entries to the Milonga pic contest, and it is really shaping up nicely. So glad everybirdy is wanting to participate.

Mom goes to see her GI doc this afternoon, since the insurance is FINALLY straightened out and working. Her acid reflux is back, and it shouldn't be, but then she didn't go back for that final endoscopy. He will probably yell at her. Oh well...

  Hey Bub!
Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

Aloha a Hui ho! Till. Tomorrow! :)

  Hi TiaMaria,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. Yeah, this weather is crazy. Yesterday, it was like 66 with lots of rain. Today it's about 50 and later we're getting snow showers! But at least 99% of the snow from the Blizzard last week is gone!

Mom's not having a great day with her back, butt and legs! It's her stupid Spinal Stenosis but she said the not being able to sleep is the worse part! She finally falls asleep & if she wakes up, forget about sleeping! Anyway, she's taking her meds, hot showers & using her Biofreeze. Everything helps to take the edge off. Mom can't get another shot til the middle or end of March. That's not so bad! She feels fortunate that she's as well as she is. Mom knows there are so many more people that are worse off then her (like your Mom) & she's grateful. We all did get showers and our cages are nice & clean! Hope You and your Mom are having a good day. Here's a vote for you, Cutie. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hi Tia
Making crystals is fun. Will they do the ammonia/bluing on coal? If so, keep that one away from you while they are preparing it. Those crystals are pretty fragile, too.
Mom made that joke about 20 minute lunch because for many years at school, that's all the time teachers got for lunch. Mom's lunch yesterday was longer than 20 minutes, they spent over 2 hours talking and looking at old and new pictures. Mom had a great time.
I haven't even looked at the new chair yet. Falco keeps going over there and getting chased off, though.
This morning mom had a tour with 4 year old kids again. They were there to learn about animals, and their chaperons insisted on the full hour tour! By the end of 45 minutes, mom's group and all the others she could see were getting restless, wandering off, talking to each other, etc, but mom, like the other docents, kept on going for the hour. Mom also found out that she can't take pics in the Pterosaur exhibit. She suspected as much, because the usual rule in the museum is that what belongs to them can be photographed, but not what doesn't. There is a nice book that mom will buy which goes along with the exhibit. Maybe we'll be able to share pics from there.
Now that she's home, mom is ours for the rest of the day. She got a load of laundry done the other day, so maybe today she'll get sheets and towels done, too. You never know...
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Don't forget to submit your pics for the Valentine contest on the Milonga page. Voting starts tomorrow! Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Vote Laka for BOTM, Peppino, vote Laka for BOTM & Falco, vote Laka, 259145, BOTM.
