My original owner bought me as a young bird when she was on disability. She recovered and was able to return to work full time, and also devote time to doing mission work, so she wanted me in a home who could give me time and love and was afraid through her neglect, I would begin plucking..

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Oranges are pretty good, nuts in the shell especially almonds. Walnuts, extraordinary!

On top of my cage, on the T stand, on the back of mom's chair in the office. On the desk chair in the library watching tv with dad.

No sticks to step up and no hands in the cage! Hate the upright vacuum cleaner!

She just fusses all over me. Wow! Love hanging out with dad on Sundays, he shares all his snacks with me, especially when I tug at his sleeve!

I make a funny vocal sound when I poop!.

I am sunshine on a cloudy day....I open my wings and shine for you! I am your blue bird of happiness!.

  Hi Blue and crew,
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 Blue
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!

  Hi Blue and Crew,
Here are some words of love:

Aloha is literally the combination of two words. Alo means to be face to face or in the presence of. Ha means the breath of life. So, aloha means to be face to face, or exchanging, the breath of life. This is a kind of blessing that is used to say hello, good bye, I love you, and generally to describe people living with respect and love for each other ("live aloha" or the "aloha spirit").

A great way to say I love you in Hawaiian, without using words, is the honi. Two people gently press their foreheads and noses together (with eyes and mouth closed). Calmly breath through the nostrils for a few breaths, exchanging ha. This is the greeting of both Hawaiians and Maori. And it is also the way that I say good night to my children.
Sweetheart - Ku’uipo (koo-ooh ee-poh)

honi – kiss

ho’opono – faithful

hoku – star

kahakai – beach

kala – money

na’au – pretty

nani – beautiful, enjoyable nohea –

handsome, loveliness punahele - favorite

I thank you all for your love, votes and support during my campaign for BOTM.

Mahalo and have a great big birdie day.

Here’s a vote for you.

  Hi Blue
Poor Liv, she still has pink eye & she also has a stomach virus! It hasn't been a good week for her! Mom hasn't been on BC the past 2 days because we were taking care of Livi and she spent the night last night. I love the grandkiddos sooooo much, but they don't like me chasing them around, but they do like giving me kisses!

We are in for some really cold weather. Between now and Sunday the high temps will be in the teens and low 20's and the low temps will be in the single digits! On Saturday the temp will be around 11°/-2° and very windy & with the wind chill it could feel like -20°! That's way too cold!

I hope your day was a good one!

Smart = akamai (ah-ka-my)
House = hale (ha-lay)
To repeat = hana hou (ha-na- ho)

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)

Just a quick note tonight, mom is watching the Superbowl game. She would like to see the Broncos win, would like to see Peyton Manning go out on top!

Change of plans, mom & Liv aren't starting the crystals until Tuesday. Sis called this morning, Liv has pink eye, she's the last one in her family to get it! Mom wants to wait a couple days because her eye is swollen shut! I sure hope mom doesn't get it!

  Hi Blue and crew,
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.

I want to give a very big thank you to SweetPepper & her sweet mom for making my awesome Valentine's Milonga pic! Thank you sooooo much!!!

Mom left for 1 1/2 hrs today to get some supplies for Livi's science fair project. Mom is going to her house tomorrow morning to start working on sugar crystals. Livi is in a girls' basketball league so mom has to work around her practice schedule. I'm sure not going to like being in lockdown every time she leaves! Mom's world is supposed to revolve around ME!

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 Blue and crew,
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,

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. Boo Boo watch all this and thought to herself thank god its not me

Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

  Hey Blue and crew!
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.

Mom is going to be busy for the next couple weeks. She'll be helping Livi, her 7 yr old granddaughter with her science fair project. They are going to make several different kinds of crystals. Mom said that I get to taste the rock candy crystals, yummm!

Thank you again my dear friends for the Hatchday wishes and for BOTD honors! I had such a great Hatchday and it was wonderful to be queen for the day! Tho I must admit that I have my mom so well trained, she treats me like a queen every day!

Some friends asked me about two of my pics, so I'll answer in my blog.

In my one pic I chewed up two $20s. She put all the pieces into a baggie & went to her bank. Mom explained what happened & showed a pic of me. All the tellers came over to see the money shredding birdie & had a good laugh! Mom left with two unchewed $20s. Mom no longer leaves money on the table!

The other was about shreddable pinatas. They are my favorite toys! Mom always gets me a parrot & a horsie (or donkey). I always bite the face off first! Then I bite off the hanging string & destroy the rest of it on the floor!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Blue and crew,
Aloha everyone and welcome to Hawaii!!

Hawaii is the melting pot of a variety of ethnic groups of people.

The Chinese, Japanese, Korean and some European people immigrated to Hawaii way back when. That's why most of the people get along as they all grew up together. They didn't know about racism and all that bad stuff till later on.

I think that's why a lot of people like Hawaii because of the fact that there are so many different ethnic people that get along well. Well, most of the time.

The weather here's so beautiful and the valleys are green and lush, it makes you able to grow just about any kind of plants, even marijuana. :0

A lot of kids grew up surfing and some have even gone pro and we are so very proud of them.

The beaches are clean and the ocean water clear blue, so inviting and cool. There are about 13 state holidays in Hawaii and mom gets those days off,isn't that nice? :)

But, Hawaii is also getting to be a very expensive place to live. Yesterday the parronts went grocery shopping and a dozen eggs was $6.99. Can you believe that or what? Trust me I do not lie. I think it's time for the parronts to go to the farm. The chicken farm that is, it's always cheaper there.

Anywho getting back to Hawaii, during the winters months the famous north shore waves are huge! Right now it's up to 22 feet! Yikes!!

I'm staying in the parking lot. Yesterday on the news they showed some tourists in the shoreline and a big wave came and took them into the ocean. The lifeguard saved them, thankfully. But you should never turn your back on the ocean, that's lesson number one.

Stay tuned for a continuation of welcome to Hawaii.

Mahalo for all the votes, love and support.

A Hui ho! (Till tomorrow)

Love,

Laka Girl

  Hi Blue & the Crew
Crowds of 30,000 people now swarm Punxsutawney to watch Phil make his annual prediction. There could be some truth to the link between clear weather on Feb. 2 and a longer winter — since sunny days in winter are often caused by cold, dry air masses, and cloudy days tend to result from moist, mild ocean air. wild groundhogs in North America often hibernate into late February and March — suggesting they may know winter isn't over without even stepping outside on Groundhog Day.

the groundhog is the largest species of ground squirrel in North America.
They dig extensive burrows that can be up to 5 feet deep and 45 feet long and
are one of the few true hibernators, relying entirely on body fat to make it through winter. Their heartbeat slows from about 75 beats per minute to as few as 4, and their body temperature drops from the 90s into the 40s (Fahrenheit).
An internal biological clock controls when wild groundhogs wake up from hibernation, but their actual emergence from the burrow depends more on daily temperature than intuition.Even aside from dedicating a holiday to it, Americans and Canadians have been very good to the groundhog. The species was relatively scarce when Europeans first settled the continent, but as settlers fragmented forests to set up farms and towns, they created more of groundhogs' favorite habitat — the edge between open and woodland areas — while also killing wolves, cougars and other top predators. Although groundhogs thrived and expanded their range, however, they still usually try to avoid contact with people.

Thank you my dear friends for the honor of BOTD! Thank you for the Hatchday wishes! Two special days in a row, what a blast!

My 20th Hatchday was very special! My Aunt Amy (mom's bestie) came over to help me celebrate! After mom, Aunt Amy is my favorite person! Mom got me my favorite cake (and hers) white almond with whipped cream icing! I'm sampling the icing in my profile pic! We didn't have ice cream, mom didn't want me having too much sugar! Mom and Aunt Amy sang Happy Hatchday to me then I got to eat some of my delicious cake, then I got to unwrap my presents! Aunt Amy got me a bag of walnuts & and a bag of almonds. Mom got me 2 lbs of pistachios, a wicker ball toy and 2 shredding toys. Both are fillable pinatas...one of which was shredded in about 10 minutes! I had so much fun I didn't want the day to end! Then I woke up to find out that I was BOTD, WOO HOO! I spent the day at the castle celebrating with King Jedi! Thank you again my dear friends!

  Hi Blue & the Crew
Groundhog Day is coming
Phil is 130 years old, supposedly. The average groundhog lives to be between 6-8 years, but Phil takes a magical elixir every summer to extend his lifespan. The elixir also changes his appearance which explains why Phil may be grey one year and a youthful brown the next. the elixir does not work on humans. it just makes them fat and baldThe groundhog's name is Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Prophet Extraordinary.When Phil comes out of his stump on Gobbler's Knob on Groundhog Day, he has a conversation with the president of the Inner Circle of the Groundhog Club in Groundhogese. The president then announces Phil's prediction. he's never wrong, however,if the president doesn't translate Phil's prediction accurately -- which is why sometimes it looks like Phil got it wrong.

Phil weighs about 20 pounds. He is 22 inches long, while the average groundhog weighs 12-15 pounds and is 20 inches long.Phil has had many wives. While Phil has an extended lifespan, his wives do not partake in the elixir so they pass away like normal groundhogs do. Phil always finds love again, though. Phil's current wife is called Phyllis While there is nothing wrong with Phil reproductively Phil has no children - he and his wife decided they are really too busy to raise a family. But that doesn't mean he does not love kids.He considers everybody under 127 years old his kids. Phil has such a full schedule he was not able to partake in the filming of the movie. In the Bill Murray movie he is played by a groundhog named Scooter - who bit the actor three times during filming.Handling Phil is a dangerous Groundhog Day task because of his fondness for biting.He once threatened to impose 60 weeks of winter if he didn't get some booze during Prohibition. Oat and honey granola bars are Phil's favorite food, in particular Nature Valley ones.He has a special car called the Philmobile. It's a little bus that houses members of the Inner Circle. Phil has a special seat on the outside, so he can be seen on parades.Oftentimes during summer parades, crowds will panic as the Philmobile draws through because they will see Phil lying flat on his back, legs in the air looking dead. But he isn't, this is just how groundhogs cool off Some people get upset when he calls for six more weeks of winter,but it's not his fault that he sees that coming."

  Hi Blue
Today was such a beautiful day! The sun was shining and it reached 64°, which was 28 degrees above normal! It will be around 50° until Wednesday, then back to winter weather!

Mom uploaded some new pics. For some reason they are all sideways & mom has no idea why! The one pic showcases my best "artwork"...I chewed up two $20s!

I had the most wonderful day today, I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!

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

  Hi Blue
We hear that our old house is going to get hit again by a nasty winter storm. we are having a very cold winter for here ... not normal winter temps. But, it's way better than up north!
Today was sunny and 74 for a little while, nice. We are still having flood warnings.
I watched mom clean my "mess" (artwork) at least 4 times. I waited until she was done and then I'd start again ... hehehe.
Hugs

  Hi Blue & the Crew
Groundhog Day Facts
In 1723, the Delaware Indians settled Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as a campsite halfway between the Allegheny and the Susquehanna Rivers. The town is 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh,. The Delawares considered groundhogs honorable ancestors. According to the original creation beliefs of the Delaware Indians, their forebears began life as animals in "Mother Earth" and emerged centuries later to hunt and live as men.
The name Punxsutawney comes from the Indian name for the location
"ponksad-uteney" which means "the town of the sandflies."
The name woodchuck comes from the Indian legend of "Wojak,
the groundhog" considered by them to be their ancestral grandfather.
When German settlers arrived in the 1700s, they brought a tradition known as Candlemas Day, which has an early origin in the pagan celebration of Imbolc. It came at the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Superstition held that if the weather was fair, the second half of Winter would be stormy and cold. For the early Christians in Europe, it was the custom on Candlemas Day for clergy to bless candles and distribute them to the people in the dark of Winter. A lighted candle was placed in each window of the home. The day's weather continued to be important. If the sun came out February 2, halfway between Winter and Spring, it meant six more weeks of wintry weather.If the sun made an appearance on Candlemas Day, an animal would cast a shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of Winter. Germans watched a badger for the shadow. In Pennsylvania, the groundhog, upon waking from mid-Winter hibernation, was selected as the replacement.Pennsylvania's official celebration of Groundhog Day began on February 2nd, 1886 . The groundhog was given the name "Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary'' and his hometown thus called the "Weather Capital of the World.'' His debut performance: no shadow - early Spring.

The legendary first trip to Gobbler's Knob was made the following year.

  Hey Blue,
Sure, come on over and bring the flockily!!

There's lots of room on the big wide beach and lots of fun in the sun.

It was a cool morning of 70 and will be a hot 83 today so bring your sunscreen as you don't want to get feather burn from the sun.

Here's a vote for you.
