ATTENTION: New Private Bird Club Website Sign Up & Info
Hi Every birdie! Squeaky's mom is working with two web designers to build a new and improved but similar bird club for us to play on since our beloved BC will be deleting our Bird eClub sometime this year! We need your support! So start nagging your parronts so we can stay together!
Basically, the more parronts that sign up, the cheaper the initial set up fee will be and also the annual fee to join the site. For more information and to sign up to participate please visit my page 28415 and leave an email address. Or you can email my mom, Sunny, directly at our email nubinskis@aol. com. She will send you all the up to date information that has been sent so far and she can answer all your questions. She also told me to tell you that all ideas and suggestions are most welcome. She also is hoping to find some parronts that have some expertise in working with advertisers and who would volunteer to get advertisers for the site. If that happens, costs would be next to nothing or maybe even nothing for all of us to play together.
So send your parronts to my page 28415 or email us to get information, leave suggestions and to sign up!
Hugs and Love to all! Squeaky, Picabo & Scion

  March has come in like a lion in our neck of the woods and its snowing snowing, snowing. i would like to start out my campaign by talking about HUMAN POOP. More than 2.5 billion people in the developing world lack access to toilets, and a child dies every 15 seconds from diarrhea, usually the result of food or water becoming contaminated by human waste. Each year, 200 million tons of the world’s poop also goes completely untreated, ending up directly in lakes, rivers, and oceans.

in Kenya, , $324 million is lost every year due to sickness and missed work hours caused by poor sanitation. Nonprofits and businesses have experimented with what to do with human waste. Haiti is famous for distributing “composting toilets” that drastically lower the risk of contracting diseases. by collecting the poop from toilets, treating it, and selling it as fertilizer.

in Kenya Instead of composting the waste to grow food, it’s turning it into energy to cook it by distributing toilets to local families, emptying them each month, and turning the poop into briquettes. After the waste is collected from toilets around town, it’s put it in a solar concentrator that uses mirrors to heat the waste to temperatures that have been shown by the Centers for Disease Control to kill pathogens, making it safe for reuse.

Across Africa and around the world, hundreds of millions of people cook with wood and charcoal. Most charcoal comes from trees that are slowly cooked down in huge earthen ovens, removing the moisture without oxidizing the wood so that it becomes a more efficient source of heat per volume. But the process consumes a lot of trees—four tons of trees produce just one ton of charcoal, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization—and with populations on the continent rising exponentially, deforestation is only increasting. Already, forest cover in Kenya has fallen to just 2 percent, and the price of charcoal is rising.

Moreover, smoke from burning charcoal indoors can be hazardous 6 percent of global diseases and 7 percent of disease-related deaths are caused by respiratory infections. poop briquettes contain one-third less charcoal than normal ones. For now the briquettes being given away for testing purposes.“When you look at the chemical composition of poop, it’s 90 percent organic matter and 40 percent carbon. So not only is there a high demand for fuel, but poop from a chemical composition standpoint already has a great composition to be turned into fuel,” he said.one major obstacle is the “ick” factor. reservations tend to disappear as soon as they try out the odorless briquettes for themselves. the proof is in the smell—or rather, lack thereof. They see it’s not smelling, it’s cooking good.”

  back in the fall mom found a small sparrow that had somehow gotten its leg tanged in a bird house filled with our doggies hair mom clips every spring for the birds making nests. there was another sparrow tangled in it also and mom thinks it was trying to help the other one that was dangling by its leg. mom had a heck of a time getting the sparrows leg out and felt the sparrow probably broke it by struggling so much. once she untangled the one sparrows leg the other sparrow became free also and they both quickly flew away before mom could check for any broken legs. today dad had the doggie outside to do her business and called for mom to come out because there was a little bird sitting on the driveway. somehow mom recognized this sparrow as the one dangling by its leg months ago from the bird house. it sat there for a few minutes and looked at mom and then it hobbled away and then flew to a nearby tree. mom knows its leg has never healed but at least it looked in good shape considering its bad leg.

my fister Boo Boo, the rare blue bali mynah will be running for BOTM starting tomorrow and would greatly appreciate your votes

  Paddy Cake is the bad budgie. Piddy follows him but doesn't go near any of us and perches in a safe place to watch all the action. every time after Paddy does his dive bombing he flys to Piddy and kisses her.

dad took the doggie to the vet today to check the progress of her healing. while at the vets office the pad on the bottom of doggies toe fell off. there is a big hole there now. all the tissue inside the hole is very healthy and should regrow and fill the hole up. the vet said there was still a little necrotic tissue on the sides which will also fall off but for dad not to worry

the visiting nurse is coming tomorrow so mom was doing some cleaning today. don't forget mom was laid up with a bad back for about 4 weeks so there wasnt much cleaning done in that time period. moms back is about 90 percent better but if she overdoes it or moves in the wrong way it hurts.

we are only allowing the nurse in the dining room which is part of the kitchen and living room but she must sit at the dining room table right next to me and i will entertain her with how loud i can yell. hopeful she won't stay long.

  mom read this fascinating article about human DNA showing that homo sapien mated with non human animals which they considered this separate group that are not monkeys but look like cavemen and their are 4 distinct groups. now mom wants to have her DNA tested to see if she has that animal DNA.

it warmed up today to 22 and actually felt comfortable compared to the - temps we have been getting. haven't heard the animal crying today but saw a big fluffy brown bird flying around and think it might have been an owl baby crying. they make the strangest sounds.

  diet to maintain brain health:the super fats your brain needs most are omega-3 fatty acids. Your brain converts them into DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) which enhances neuronal communication and promotes neuronal growth.
1. Apples: Eating an apple a day protects the brain from oxidative damage that causes neurodegenerative diseases such Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This magical nutrient that acts as protection is quercetin, which is a phytonutrient.
2. Asparagus: Asparagus is rich in folic acid, which is essential for the metabolism of the long chain fatty acids in your brain.
3. Lean Beef: Lean beef is rich in vitamin B12, iron and zinc. These vitamins and minerals have been shown to maintain a healthy neural tissue.
4. Blueberries and strawberries: Studies show that people who eat berries improve their memory and their motor skills. In addition, their antioxidant properties can protect your brain from the oxidative process.
5. Dark chocolate: Dark chocolate offers incredible concentration powers. It is a very powerful antioxidant containing natural stimulants that increase the production of feel-good endorphins. Trick: you need to find dark chocolate with less than 10 grams of sugar per serving for optimal benefits.
6. Salmon: Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which studies have shown to be essential for brain function.
7. Dried oregano: Certain spices have powerful antioxidant properties. In several studies, this powerful spice has shown to have 40 times more antioxidant properties than apples, 30 times more than potatoes, 12 times more than oranges, and 4 times more than that of blueberries or strawberries.
8. Walnuts: Walnuts are rich in protein and contain omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins E and B6 which all promote healthy neural tissue.
9. Whole grains: Whole grains deliver fiber and vitamin E that help promote cardiovascular health, which helps improve the circulation to the brain.
10. Yogurt: Yogurt and other dairy foods are filled with protein and vitamin B that are essential to improve the communication between nerve cells.

  WHAT'S A DUCK'S FAVORITE DRUG? QUACK!

yesterday mom used a shovel and started chipping away at the ice on the sidewalk.

today dad used a pickaxe to break up the ice in the yard. can't wait to see what the yard will look like come spring. at least doggie is able to hobble around a little better. now its snowing and that should soften up the cat litter and mulch dad had packed into the yard which then also had frozen

after the bad budgie got his kicks tonight chasing poor Boo Boo he did something really stupid. he decided to land next to me while i was sitting on the dresser using my poopie pad. mom says lucky for the budgie i was preoccupied. mom threw a cat toy at him and chased him away pronto!

  got to get this blog in before birdchnnel crashes again.

today i had my beak trimmed. mom held me whir daddy trimmed it. i did not like it at all. one good thing though since mom and daddy worked as a team my beak was trimmed very quickly. i got a piece of frenchtoast for being such a brave little girl.

well the doggie wouldn't walk on the trail with the kitty litter. mom then covered the kitty litter with pet safe deicing salt which didn't melt anything. then dad bought mulch and covered that all up with mulch and that worked and the doggie used the trail. dad went to the doctors today so mom took doggie out and she peed and then mom forgot to wipe all the mulch and kitty litter off of her feet and you wouldn't believe the mess on the carpets. then doggie pooped on the rug which was fine with mom since she had to clean up the footprints anyway and didn't have to worry about doggie slipping and sliding outside trying to poop.

glad we were able to get back on bird channel.

  The handlers of Pennsylvania's most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, said Monday the furry rodent has forecast six more weeks of winter.
Members of the top hat-wearing Inner Circle announced the "prediction" Monday morning.

A German legend has it that if a furry rodent sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another six weeks. If not, spring comes early.

The forecast was delivered after a steady pre-dawn rain turned to snow as temperatures dropped from the high 30s to around freezing. They were forecast to keep dropping over much of the state, prompting the state Department of Transportation to lower the speed limit to 45 mph for many interstate highways which were already wet and expected to freeze or be covered with snow as the day wore on.
The rain kept some revelers away, with state police estimating the crowd at around 11,000, slightly smaller than in recent years when upward of 15,000 attended.

Despite the German legend, Phil's handlers don't wait to see if he sees his shadow — as he likely would not have on such an overcast day. Instead, the Inner Circle decide on the forecast ahead of time and announce it on Gobbler's Knob, a tiny hill in the town for which the groundhog is named, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.Records going back to 1887 show Phil has now predicted more winter 102 times while forecasting an early spring just 17 times. There are no records for the remaining years.

Phil's counterpart in New York City, Staten Island Chuck, delivered a conflicting message in calling for an early spring after not seeing his shadow.

Punxsutawney Phil, the weather prognosticating groundhog, during the 129th celebration of Groundhog Day on Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa., Monday, Feb. 2, 2015. Phil saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter weather.

Chuck emerged from his home at the Staten Island Zoo early Monday and took part in a new ceremony that didn't include being held by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.Last year, in de Blasio's first time at the annual ceremony, the rodent slipped from his grasp and fell to the ground. It died weeks later.A medical exam revealed it died of internal injuries, but zoo officials said it was unclear if they were caused by the fall from de Blasio's arms. Zoo officials didn't make the death public for months.The accident became a source of teasing for the mayor, and de Blasio himself suggested Monday that "teams of animal behavior experts and scientists have consulted from all over the country" to keep the groundhog safe.

In Wisconsin, the mayor of Sun Prairie might not be getting too close to a groundhog again.During a celebration Monday, the handler of Jimmy the groundhog held the animal next the face of Mayor Jonathan Freund, and Jimmy promptly bit down on the mayor's left ear.Freund flinched, but went on with the event.

  while mom was feeding us this morning she looked outside and there was a big buck standing on our patio looking in the window. Boo Boo didn't make a sound. the buck was very jumpy like someone was after it and it jumped down to the neighbors yard and hung around for about an hour before taking off.

when the roads are treacherous the ones you have to watch out for are the drivers that think because they have an suv they can drive fast and nothing will happen. they are the ones who lose control and crash into everyone. today started out with rain and with the rain falling were the most gigantic snowflakes i have ever seen. then it warmed up a tad bit and a lot of the snow turned to slush. now tonight it is cold again and the slush has turned into sheets of ice so tomorrow morning will be very bad for driving. at least we haven't got the big winds that were predicted

  A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As
she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his
stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.
After a moment or two, the vet
shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles,
has passed away."
The distressed woman wailed,
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied
the vet..
"How can you be so sure?" she
protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or
something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned
around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later
with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on
in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his
front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from
top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and
shook his head.
The vet patted the dog on the
head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he
returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also
delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat
back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and
strolled out of the room.
The vet looked at the
woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most
definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and
produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she
cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it,
the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the
Cat Scan, it's now $150."

  Hello Piddy, Hello Paddy~
I hope you guys are having a fun day! Mom talked to her sister this morning and my budgie cousins are doing great. Pru who is the ring leader, loves to swing. Mom sister bought them a couple of swings and when she uncovered them this morning, Pru was swinging away! Mom sister says that Pru doesn't not like her! She says that Piper and Paige will come over to her but Pru tries to bite her! Pru it the leader of the pack so perhaps she just has to keep her distance to let the others know who is in charge!! I'm just glad they are all doing well!
Mom's sister put a radio in the room for them and the listen to oldies while mom's sister is at work! I prefer classical or jazz!!!
Enjoy the day!

  mom was hoping the fall on the icy driveway Sunday night while she was dragging the old fish tank out for garbage pickup the next day would cause no bad back pains but boy was she ever wrong. monday morning she could barely get out of bed she was in so much pain and after feeding the birds and cats she pretty much spent the rest of the day and night in bed. she did manage to let me and Boo Boo out for playtime for a short while that evening but just layer there and let us play on her and around her. after putting us to bed she couldn't even clean up the mess we had made and just went back to bed. tuesday wasn't much better and she had to clean our cages and it took her all afternoon because she can't bend down and so she would have to sit on the floor and then she couldn't get back up and we still got a few hours of playtime that evening. today mom decided to finally take a shower which must of given dad some relief because she sure is a sight for sore eyes. all she wants to do is sleep. it is still very hard to get out of bed but once she is up and has her brace on she can stand. if she doesn't have her brace on her back just throbs and throbs. tomorrow she will attempt to vacuum the bedroom which now pretty much looks like a pig stye. mom thanks everyone for their get well wishes for her.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  the temperatures warmed up to 35 today and the big bunny was back in the yard hoping around. it must have felt good for him to feel the warmer temperatures. as usual he didn't hop far and just hung around the house.

tonight mom was moving the water logged old fish tank stand up the icy driveway for trash pickup tomorrow and she fell flat on the small of her back. this made the pain in her leg stop. mom is afraid the fall will escalate the pain and by tomorrow she will not be able to move. right now she feels good but sore.

  For more than 100 years, aspirin has been used to stop aches, pains and hangovers. Most recently, the acetyl salicylic acid tablets have been touted as an immediate brake for heart attacks.

But the pills can do so much more. Here are some surprising ways to use aspirin.

1. Acne treatment: To heal pimples faster, form a paste by crushing two aspirin tablets and mixing with a small amount of water. Brush onto pimples, let dry, then rinse.
2. Insect bite treatment: Make an aspirin:water solution and spray on insect bites. Welts will fade faster. (Here are 5 other natural ways to ease bug bite itching.)
3. Hand stain remover: To get rid of grass, cigarette and coffee stains on hands, mix crushed aspirin with lemon juice. Rub solution on stained hands and watch marks disappear.
4. Anti-fungal soil conditioner: To discourage soil fungi, dissolve 1 aspirin tablet into 1 quart of water, and spray on soil.
5. Rose starter: To prepare bare root rose bushes for planting, dissolve 3 aspirin tablets into 5 gallons of water, and submerge roots in the solution. Let roots soak up the solution for several hours before planting.
6. Dandruff remover: To remove flakes and itch, mix a handful of shampoo with 2 crushed aspirin tablets. Coat hair and scalp with the mixture, let set for 2 minutes, then rinse and shampoo again.
7. Exfoliate: Wash your face with a water/aspirin mixture, which will rub away dead skin cells.
8. Callus remover: Soak calluses in a mixtures of 6 crushed aspirin tablets, 1/2 teaspoon of water and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. Coat callouses, cover with cloth for 15 minutes, then remove softened callouses with a pumice stone.
9. Flower extender: Pulverize 1 aspirin tablet and add it to vase water to extend bloom life.

  health benefits from soaking in the tub with Epsom Salts

1.Improved heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.
2.Improved ability for the body to use insulin, reducing the incidence or severity of diabetes.
3.Flushed toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.
4.Improved nerve function by electrolyte regulation. Also, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.
5.Relieved stress. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.
6.Reduced inflammation to relieve pain and muscle cramps.
7.Improved oxygen use.
8.Improved absorption of nutrients.

All this from a bath? Hurray! While there are many different brands of Epsom salt, they are all the same product chemically, and can be found at most drug stores. Add two cups of Epsom salt and soak for at least 12 minutes. Do this three times weekly.

  mom always heats the water in the outside birdbaths so the birds have water in the freezing temps. then she would have these long extension rods stretching from the bird baths to the outside electrical outlets. this year she moved her birdbath to right beside the front porch because its closer to the house and easier to get to and no long extension cords. since she has one heated bird bath there she let the others dry up as they are concrete and can crack from the ice. anyway she didn't think the birds would be able to find it but they did. if we don't get a certain level of snow our water tables this summer will plummet. we should have had about 25 inches by now. they say we are going to have a very hot and dry summer.

love Boo Boo

  well we were suppose to get freezing rain today. it did rain and rain and rain but it seems to be warming up instead of getting colder. right now its 51 and no longer raining. the township had put a ton of salt on the road which has all washed away.

strange things are still going on around bird channel tonight. we still can't see any pictures. mom sent a e mail to i-5 publishing to let them know. she said she was having severe withdrawal pains from not being able to blog on bird channel . could they please fix bird channel on monday morning when they all come back from vacation or mom might not survive. so far no response.

  strange things are going on around bird channel tonight. we can't scroll down pages. the pages won't load. can't see any pictures.

mom decided to try and get rid of the spiders webs today. we have these cellar spiders all over the house. some people call them skull spiders because of you look very closely at their bodies they have the shaped of a skull on them. they look like daddy long legs but instead of having a circle for a body they have this longer shaped body but it is still quite small and then of course they have the super long legs. i know it doesn't sound pleasant to have a house full of these guys but they are the best predators mom has ever seen. they love to eat ants and other spiders. if you have these guys in your house the ants will disappear. they also don't bother you and if you get too close to them they will start vibrating to let you low they are there. their only drawback are the unsightly webs. it has been so gloomy in Pittsburgh that you couldn't see them but with the short amount of sunlight we have been getting these last few days their webs looked pretty bad hanging everywhere. I even had one in a web by her cat house stand I use and left it alone and it leaves me alone.Cori on the other hand is scared to death of spiders and screams like a sissy girl when she sees one. i just glad theses webs are gone.

love Boo Boo

  mom was sitting at the computer and she noticed 2 squirrels running up and down the oak tree in front of the window. all of a sudden she sees one of the squirrels plummeting to the ground and the other squirrel running back up the tree. mom ran outside but couldn't find the fallen squirrel and wonders if a hawk had tried to grab it and dropped it.

i was having the best time playing with my toys tonight. mom says i was getting over stimulated because the next thing i know i gave mom a bone crushing thumb crunch. this made mom angry and she cried out ouch and threw a towel over me and put me in my carrier for time out. i screamed for 10 minutes straight before settling down and sweetly saying hello. mom then let me out and i ran over to bite her again but i saw the towel she had used to catch me before so i bited that instead and threw it off the bed. then i preened my feathers for awhile and mom said it was bed time and i sure was tired after all that playing.

love Cori

  Hi Paddy Cake & Piddy Girl,

How are you two doing? Hope you had a great Christmas. I know we all did here. Can't stay on "Too" long cause Mom is doing everybirdie's typing. She's been out on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, yesterday, tomorrow, Monday & Tuesday! But she loves to visit and see her Family and Friends during the Holidays. Here's a vote for you, cuties. Bye for now.

Winghugs,
Parker

  santabird brought Cori this very scary laughing dancing robotic reindeer. Cori is playing with it like a maniac. i got as far away from her as i could because i know its a matter of time before Cori throws it off the bed. i thought i was safe until i realized i was standing right under the budgies cage. his eyes got big and round when he saw me so close and came right out and landed on the floor next to me. mom jumped up and stopped anything that might happen just as i did a most magnificent jump and twirl at him. mom thinks the budgie flew back in his cage because she was there but i know its because i made myself look scary to him.


mom splurged on herself and bought a 19 inch samsung tv. its a big step up from the 10 inch analog tv she has been using all this time to watch all her movies on showtime,hbo, cinemax. anyway mom thought how hard could it be to set it up. long story short it only took her 6 hours with lots of frustrating tears. she even went back to the store to ask for help and everything mo was doing was correct. finally she called comcast and they helped her reprogram her remote control to their dvr which was why mom couldn't get any picture. everything has to be reprogrammed. anyway the tv is nice but the sound is tinny sounding. her old tv had much better sound.

love Boo Boo

  santabird brought me a laughing dancing robotic reindeer. i like it very much. mom says she has to stay with me while i play with it so i don't throw it off the bed and break it. tonight i pulled it backwards by its tail as it was laughing and dancing. then i grabbed one of its antlers and laughed and tried to throw it off the bed but mom caught it. afterwards i played with my new ball with a bell inside of it. moms says i get quite a workout as i pick it up and throw it around

love Cori

  Parrot’s Night Before Christmas
by Cheryl Tamburri
T’was the night before Christmas, so much to do!
Not a creature was stirring not even the Too
The stockings were hung, the parrots were bathed,
To wrap the bird toys, my efforts enslaved.
The cages were covered, the birds all in bed,
While visions of almonds danced in their heads.
And mom in her bird shirt, dressed looking poor,
on hands and knees cleaning poop off the floor.
When out on the lawn there arose such a chatter!
we jumped up to see just what was the matter
we peered out the window, what now to endure!
A Macaw in a sleigh, pulled by tiny Conures!
A Scarlet, he was, in a jaunty red hat,
I thought to myself, Good Lord, look at that!
He flew off the sleigh, and into my room,
bringing foot toys and blocks and a raffia broom.
we gasped in pure wonder; and we love Santa too
‘Oh yes!’, said the Scarlet, ‘i love you!’
“They love and they play and to owners they chat,
How many folks have pets just like that?!”
The joy parrots bring you all through the year,
The ones without out homes that are equally dear,
They deserve affection and enrichment all year,
But tonight especially, in hearts hold them all near.
The wise old bird gave a nod and a wink;
After dropping off toys he was gone in a blink!
And we thought to ourselves, we are blessed, yes indeed;
and to people who take take rescue birds, and to fill all their needs
He flew to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And off they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim as they flew out of sight
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

love Cori and Boo Boo

  well i sure learned my lesson. you should never laugh at anybody else's beak trimming like i laughed at Cori . today mom trimmed my beak and trimmed 4 nails. the other nails were ok and my beak only needed a quick sanding down. but i sure gave mom a run for her money because i was non stop wiggling. next mom has to have dad hold the budgie while she tries to correct the scissor beak. mom says its going to take a long time to get it straightened out.

our dad had hired some computer nerd to come and fix his commuter. he had lost the sound on all his music, i tunes and u-tube. he was very upset. there was no point in mom trying to help him because he refuses to listen to anything she says. our frother stopped by the other day and dad was moaning about the no sound coming from his computer. frother looked at dads computer and said you have the sound on mute. the computer nerd appointment was cancelled.

  my beak feels great and i am using it to bite mom, all my toys and right now i am shredding a shoe box.

Boo Boo thought it was funny i got my beak dremmeled the other day but guess what? today it was her turn! of course it only took a few minutes to sand a little off the end of her beak and she needed 4 nails trimmed. what took time was trying to hold her still.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  well i had a horrific afternoon. mom said she was very happy with how my beak is coming along but after staring at me for the longest time she decided it needed a little more work. she said she wasn't happy with how my beak had lost its curved shaped and was starting to look like a straight dagger so she decided to dremmel the under part of my upper beak to bring back the shapely curve of it. first mom couldn't get my beak open and i made the most pitiful sounds of protest. then when mom finally pried open my beak i stuck my tongue out at her. mom said i was going to have a very sore tongue if i didn't move it out of the way. 2-1/2 hours later with tons of minnie breaks she finally finished. after bringing back the curve to my beak she felt a need to smooth off the sides and then VOILA! she was done. i was so traumatized i pooped on mom, all over the towel and then i somehow managed to poop on myself. mom says because my bite is now better my beak doesn't look so long and overgrown. she then held me up to the mirror so i could see me. i have to agree it does look nice. the whole time this was going on Boo Boo just watched and laughed at me. mom says if i am feeling revived by this evening i will get a nice shower and a blow dry. i am looking forward to that.
