  Hi, Bub
So wonderful when other makes pics when a parront is unable to do so. Even though we've made many of our own pics always fun when included in with other fids.

When there are grands in the family us fids must learn to share our moms with 'em. Good she got all the supplies to get the science project started. Think once it is started then just have to wait while the crystals grow so your mom won't need to do anything.

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

  hello BUB !
Happy Sunday ! Day three of a lovely weekend ! After what happened Friday, mom decided to check the weather each morning - now it looks like (according to the local weather channel) snow again Monday into Tuesday . . . but WeatherChannel says only 1-3 inches on Tuesday. So she still doesn't know !

Sadly, I will be in lock-up for a while today since mom and dad have some grocery shopping to do and a trip to WildBirds Unlimited for seed . . . hopefully, they'll be home early ! After all tonight's the game ! Daddy doesn't care much about either team, but there'll be good treats and snacks !

Have a lovely Sunday full of love :) Hope mom isn't gone too too long ! Cookie

Oh, the big project begins! I still think you need to Skype them so, you can keep an eye on them.
At least we saw sun this morning. In the afternoon, the rain started and hasn't stopped yet! I'm still waiting around wearing my swimsuit and flip flops. Looks like one more week of low 60's ....brrrrrr. The only eggciting thing we saw today was a cute brown bunny eating our lawn.

  Hiya Bub!
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

Thank you for you votes and support.

  Heya, Miss Bub!
Yeah, lockdown sucks. I mean, life should really revolve around us, and nobody else. Sounds like your Mom will be having fun, though!

Mom went to get her feathers cut today, and her hairdresser said she loved the website. And sounds like Mom could get on as a consultant for other stuff that her hubby does. That would be cool. It sounds like there is a lot of stuff in the works. Guess we shall see. Then Mom said she wanted to see the hubby's laptop--it has been in to Best Buy 8 times in two years for issues. Mom says she wants to see what the problem is when he gets it back.

Then she made soup today. Oh, boy! I knew the minute she took that stock pot out that something good was gonna happen. Just got done having my second nibble at it (buried the beak the first round). Just yummy!

Hope your Saturday was awesome and you got lots of good Mom time like I did.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hello Tia~~
I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hi Tiamaria
Bub and sweet Aunt Sandy!
This morning was a bright sunny morning after the cold dark snowy stormy day we had yesterday.The highs for the day are 36,the lows 32 and right now its 36. My dad is out there plowing out the driveway and the deck and walkway to the mailbox.Mom got us up and fed us our bean mix,cleaned our room and cages and made zucchini pizza,its in the oven right now.The sun is melting some of this snow off the roads at least and hopefully off our yards and driveway.The plow guy never showed up to plow out our driveway and my dad is doing that now.Now they are telling us we'll be getting more snow and 5 inches each time on Monday and then again on Wednesday. Skin bro went down to shovel Nana's driveway out and her walkway this morning.Other than watching some of the snow melting from our window swing there's nothing exciting going on around here for today.The storm and wind yesterday and the power going out was enough eggcitement for us for a long time!We are just too happy being warm and inside on such a cold day!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and vote#4,528!Loving you always and forever,Dixie and Mom Rose too!

Yep, the voting has begun in the February Valentine's Milonga Pic Contest (hefty title, isn't it?). We are already getting lots of votes, so I want to thank all the voters and remind everybirdy else to get their tailfeathers on over to page #165848 and support your favorites. There are four categories, so four votes per flock per day. That's a lot of votes between now and the 17th, so get busy.

It is nice here today, but so far not quite warm enough to get outside. However tomorrow they are predicting a high of 80, with 80 or a little more through Friday. The warm weather is greyt for my sunbaths, but there is not a drop of rain in that forecast. That is not a good thing at all.

Mom got her new book from Amazon to replace the one I chewed up, so she will be making a run to the library today. I will be losing her for an hour or so, and nobirdy to blame but myself. Phooey!

  Hi Tia
That's a nice variety, it should be fun to do!
We finally got some pics posted of the new chair: the first pic in the gallery is a close up of the pattern, but doesn't show the colors well, so the second one is the colors. The pillow on there is one mom cross stitched a few years ago. The third pic is mom's left hand, new polish.
Mom was at the museum today doing another spotlight of Archaeopteryx for a couple of hours. It was much more relaxed than last week, though. She only saw about 90 people. It's always fun to do those spotlights, because there are lots of interesting questions and comments.
The weather today is in the mid 40s, it's really sunny and pretty, too. We think that's not going to last long, though we can't complain about winter this year. It's been really mild.
Now that mom is home, she's ours, all ours, for the rest of the day! We hope you will all go to the milonga page and vote every day for each category. If you don't have the page number, go to my aviary and hit the biggest avatar, the pink and purple one.

  Hi Bub!
How is the crystal growing going? Mom says she did it with sugar before but it was so long ago, she has ho idea how that was, probably for my skin sis when she was little!
Sorry i have been off a few days! It is crazy here with the reno and the weather! It was in the 90s for a couple of days and then Thursday we had hurricane force winds, even knocked out a plate glass window in the living room of a house of my mom's friend! And it is still in the 60s, blowing and raining here!
Every day my parronts have had to go hunting for tile for the house or for something the workers need. Today dad is running errands and mom baked a cake for the workers. She is making cheese soup too. She does that when it is cold! We are all inside watching her! Supervising! Hehehe!
Anyway, my parronts found a tile they wanted at Home Depot. They couldn't find any boxes of the tile though so they asked a worker for help. The worker said it was in back in the storeroom and did my parronts actually want it today? Another worker said he couldn't go back there until the evening to get it. They said yes and he said come back in an hour. So an hour later they go back and no tile! At this point they happened to run into the manager of that department who asked what they wanted and man, did he get those workers jumping to find the tile, load it in a cart and take it out to the truck! And they all apologized for making my parronts wait and have to return to the store and that it should never have happened! Interesting!
Well, this is greyt weather for napping! Have a nice weekend!
Love, Picabo

  Hi Bub
It's Popeye.
Mom and dad stayed home yesterday and just puttered around the house. They did laundry and made 35 deviled eggs for Super Bowl Sunday at mom's brother's house. the eggs will last about 20 minutes. Dad did a little bit more cleaning and put clean sheets on the bed. Then he grilled New York steaks for dinner.
Today will be clear and warm, with a high of 80 and a low of 55. Mom and dad are going to the La Mirada theater so see a musical about the building of the Empire State Building. It's called Empire.
Hope your day is fun.

Our dad rested a lot yesterday and is feeling much better today, at any rate we are back at our normal routine! It is slightly warmer today, but the weather is an ever-changing and volatile thing, so we try not to let it bother us to badly! I think most of our humans have little medical issues they deal with on a regular basis, and we do not want to bore anybody with ours! Life is good, but you must never give up, keep on keeping on!

  morning BUB !
Remember yesterday I told you no snow in the near future ? Well, listen to this ! Mom finished my blogs yesterday morning and peeked out the window - there were a few flurries, as predicted, so she got ready to get in the shower. By the time she got out the sky was white ! Snow ! Fast and furious ! The phone rang . . . 2 hour delay. So mom made blueberry scones for me and dad . . . it was still snowing like crazy when the phone rang again - SNOW DAY ! Three day weekend ! We had a great lazy day . . . skritches, fetch and television - I even got one of the blueberries :)

Today is heading up to the mid to upper 30's so lots of it should melt. Another shot of it on Tuesday - mom's been dvr'ing reruns of the JOHNNY CARSON show to see in the morning (since she can't stay awake to watch them at night like when she was a kid) Maybe she needs to watch the WeatherChannel instead ! !

Have a great day and don't forget, today is the last day to try your wing at the love songs over at NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 !

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!

  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,

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.

  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

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)

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

  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!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  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.

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Bub,
Are your Mom's clothes baskets plastic or woven baskets? My Momma buys us woven baskets at garage sales for us to chew up, but only the natural ones with no paint or dye on them. They make great chewing toys for .50 to $1. apiece.
Big Hugs from Finnegan

  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

  Hi Bub
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.
