My bird was up for adoption at the pet store. I was told he was injured so they could not sell him. They were giving him to someone that would give him a good home. When I saw him, I knew he needed to come home with me. Chipper is doing great now!

HAPPY HUMDAY

The Smith’s Longspur May Be Nature’s Champion Lover
Are you the type that has an insatiable appetite for lusty affairs?
Do you seek the same qualities in a partner?
Then you’ll probably enjoy the story of the Smith’s Longspur. This bird’s 70’s swinging style is enough to make even Hugh Hefner blush.

Arctic Summers, Midwest Winters
Small like a sparrow, the Smith’s Longspur spends its summers in Alaska and Canada and its winters in the Midwest and the South, often congregating in open fields.In terms of range, then, it’s a lot like some other species. What sets the Smith’s Longspur apart is its astonishing libido.

An Insatiable Appetite For Love
At the peak of the spring mating season, the typical Smith’s Longspur copulates more than 350 times a week. The females solicit these encounters, and the males cooperate roughly half the time.Otherwise the creatures are resting and refueling—for their fall migration or just to maintain their busy love lives!

As hard as it may be to believe given the cold affecting much of the country, but spring is only 16 days away

  Hello Chipper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom just got back from the vet with Mandy. She has been digging at herself because of the fleas. They put Revolution on her and gave her a pill that will kill the fleas within one hour. Merlin will be going at 3pm today to get his Revolution and some shots too! He is not going to be a very happy cat!
The vet told mom that there is this stuff called Flea Blaster that is all natural and perfectly safe around birds. It will kill all the fleas, eggs and larva that might be in the rug. Mom will be getting some of that today too! We will be flea free within a few days! YES!
Mandy does not have dysplasia. It is a spinal degenerative disease. It is just because of her age and there is nothing they can do. She is not in any pain since it's more like paralysis than arthritis. She can still make it around the house and she is still eating well so he told mom she is doing the right thing. He gave mom some cortalone to help with any inflammation. He was very impressed that mom knew about the "Sling" to help her walk! Thank you so much to Aunt Arlene for that information!
Ian and Mom carried her downstairs and lifted her into the car. She was a bit nervous to begin with but mom put the window down and she was happy!! The vet told mom that when she stops coming along to get me out of my night cage and won't eat then that will be the time to let her go. For now we still have her! Mom is just glad to know that Mandy is not in pain!
Sorry I went on and on!! You can tell we are very happy that for now, Mandy is okay!
Enjoy the day!

Well, mom was supposed to go to a meeting at the museum today, but with the horrid weather conditions, she opted to stay at home. It was rain changing to snow when she got up this morning, and the temps have been falling since then. When she walked the dogs (at 10!) the salt truck was going up the street, so it's slippery. We don't have sidewalks in our plan, so mom walks on the street and was glad to see the truck. If mom goes out at all today, it will be to Mystery Lovers Book store to pick up some books she ordered last week, and to the supermarket to buy more grapes and berries for us.
I hope you are having a nicer day, less yuck on the ground, more warm in the sky. Get lots of scritches and cuddles today and stay warm. Hugs, Peppino

  Flitzer on an icy Wednesday in Buffalo
LA Fitness today: Dad had an adventure keeping his commitment of going to the gym:
The real work-out was trying not to fall down my driveway or in the street. Everything was sheer ice.
Crawled/Slid/Skidded down the driveway -and the street was worse.

Ice-covered by water - no way to get a foothold anywhere. HE IS BAD ON ICE

I went into the confessional box after decades of being away from the Church...

Inside I found a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap.

On one wall, there's a row of decanters with fine Irish whiskey and Waterford crystal glasses.

On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.

Then, the priest comes in and I said to him…

"Father, please forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession…

But I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be."

The priest then replied…

" You moron, you're on my side." RT

Happy Humpday ! Mom didn't have her drama club yesterday - all after school activities were cancelled cause of snow. It didn't start till about 3:00 but it came hard and steady till we had about 4-5 inches and then overnight it changed to freezing rain and sometime this morning it's supposed to go over to plain rain. The sanders just went by . . . later tonight it changes back to snow - 4-6 inches tomorrow ! When will it end ? Although, I must say it was nice having mom home early to play yesterday !

Don't forget to go play NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! Love Cookie

  Hi Chipper
today is World Wildlife Day—a day to celebrate the amazing variety of animals with which we share the planet and a special day to raise awareness of the plight of wildlife.

The United Nations has designated March 3 as World Wildlife Day, described by the UN as “an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts and obstacles faced by those who wish to conserve populations of endangered species and their habitats all over the world.

Wildlife crime is a key issue when it comes to the conservation of increasingly dwindling environmental resources shared by humans, plants and animals. Without the help of citizens all over the globe, wildlife crime will remain a threat to our world and all who share it. Thousands of species are decreasing at alarming rates as ruthless profiteers prey on the most vulnerable populations around the world.The illegal wildlife trade is among the worst and most lucrative transnational crimes, after drugs, arms, and human trafficking. Global commercialization of wild animals and plants is a multi-billion dollar industry that results in extreme animal cruelty and severe population declines.

On World Wildlife Day, we ask that you reflect on how wildlife crime is endangering our planet, and what you can do to help.

Today, on World Wildlife Day, speak out loudly for wildlife—because they can't speak out for themselves!

There's not much going on today. Mom is going to have a late lunch/early dinner with her sister later, after they shop at Barnes and Noble and maybe a few other places. Other than that, it's a dull day here.
It's supposed to go up to 42 today, which will mean that a lot of the nasty ice will melt, but mom never believes that until it happens. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Mom had a really short day yesterday - two hour delay for school cause of snow and then she had a workshop in the afternoon - she got home when she should have is all that mattered to me :) This afternoon is her drama club meeting . . . only we're supposed to get a couple more inches of snow so she may cancel - wait and see.
Good news is that by the weekend it's supposed to be near 40 ! ! !

My latest project includes carrying my set of measuring cups one at a time and filling up all the food and water bowls with them ! Then when I get hungry or thirsty, I throw them and they make a great big clunking noise ! ! !

Monday Dad got me in the Travel Cage and took me to get my claws done with Aunt Maria.
I decided, for a change, not to fight it, and it passed quickly. Dad even bought some extra seeds for me while he was there. I must say, it was nice getting out as I've been stuck at home for the past couple months in record-cold temperatures.

That is a really cute pic of you.
We had another sunny day with 18 degrees. Tuesday it's back to a winter weather advisory. It looks like an all day snow. The bad part is, we always get a really bad winter storm at the beginning of March or the end. So far, it came in as a lamb ... oh oh! Well, it's back to the footie pj's and hot chocolate for me.

  Hi Chipper
thankyou for liking my picture. your are looking super cute in your picture.

since we are still getting winter advisory warnings, more snow and temps still dropping down to the low 10s i thought i would talk about chickadees those cute little black and white balls of fluff we see flying around outside in this weather. Chickadees Are Cold Weather Machines

Though any bird that survives winter in the North amazes those of us that depend on furnaces and warm blankets, the black-capped chickadee may be the most incredible of all winter survivors. although none can compare to the emperor penguin thats for sure.

“Black-capped Chickadees have a wonderful assortment of adaptations for the winter. “Carefully hidden food items, dense winter coats, specially selected winter roost cavities, and perhaps most remarkable of all, the ability to go into nightly hypothermia, thus conserving large amounts of energy, greatly increases the chances of survival,” The ability to go into regulated hypothermia actually lowers the chickadee’s body temperature in a controlled manner, down to about 12 or 15 degrees (F.) below their normal daytime temperature of 108 degrees (F.). This remarkable adaptation allows the bird to conserve almost 25 percent of its hourly metabolic expenditure when the outside temperature is at freezing. The lower the outside temperature, the more energy conserved

“Chickadees are not the suburban wimps that some people think they are as every winter morning chickadees replace the fat they used overnight and struggle against starvation and stinging cold. even though they are tough survivors that live close to the edge of life i still find myself partial to Bue Jays as i spot their bright blue color against the white snow and hear them calling out to me every morning. at least i like to think they are calling out to me.

We are now engaged in another beautiful Monday morning, thank you Lord! It will be another catch up day for dad and us, but I have no idea how he could ever get behind, he is constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve! All of our bird things are done precisely when they should be! We always have fresh water and food is presented to us 24/7, he says we can't run to the fridge, or the sink for a drink whenever we want to like our humans! Nothing special planned for today, but tomorrow will explode with a ton of necessary errands, that must be taken care of, that is how we roll! Please give my love to all in your Monday home, see ya tomorrow...

Another cute pic!
Yesterday mom did call off at the museum, as the weather was horrid. It snowed most of the morning and into the afternoon, then it changed to rain and froze. The good news is that Josh came and shoveled, then salted. That didn't keep it from freezing overnight, though, so mom had to salt the front walk and the driveway before she could walk the dogs and leave.
Mom did her taxes yesterday, and with the refund, she may buy a new stove. At least that's what she's thinking right now.
Today mom worked at the very cold wildlife center. They have set up space heaters, but the building is so big with high ceilings, they didn't help much. Mom cleaned up after the gull in the small flight aviary (no heater in there), then she worked in the recovery room (again, no heater in there). She was pretty cold when she got done with the animals, so she asked if it was okay to leave. They said yes, of course! Now she's working on warming up.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and staying warm. Spring in 18 days! Hugs, Peppino

Where does the weekend go ? Although yesterday was a good day with my Laura coming to celebrate her birthday ! After some chicken (yum) there was a strawberry for me while the hoomans had brownie cake ! Then I got to have the wrappings from the present . . . the only bad part was it ended too soon since mom wanted Laura home before dark cause of all the snow !

Yep, about 6 more inches ! It started just before noon and kept coming - a light snow, but steady, so it added up. Mom just heard there's a 2 hour delay for school today :)

  Hi Chipper
i am running for BOTM and would appreciate your votes. 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.”
