takes Lakas wing and leeds her around the birdy castle garden and explains all about the honey bee queen and bees they will be getting soon. Queen Boo Boo Bought them on ebay. first we had to find good spots for the hives. we have built these boxes called supers for the bees. the opening must face the south east so the honey bees can get the early sunlight. the supers are protected from the harsh winds blowing from the north and northwest with plenty of shrubs like forsythia, ilex and juniper. we dont want the little honey bees to get too cold or too hot so we are placing the supers under shade trees so that they get dappled sunlight and not full or direct sunlight. first we built a base with cinder blocks and then surrounded that wit pretty brick so it looks nice. then the super is built with layers of board and planks in a box. we can add on to it as the hive gets bigger but for now its best to go with small. i am very excited about the bees arrival and hope you will be here at the castle when we release them. it will be so much fun. i have to check with UPS to find out the expected shipping date

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi Laka
Ahhhh, this is the life! I love enjoying the beach. Oh yes, I have my hat and shades on. Thanks for the lotion, we need to keep our feathers in good condition.
I'm loving this fruity drink with the umbrella in it too.


It was a nice day, high 40's and partly cloudy. I was busy helping mom clean the house. I think my condo will get cleaned tomorrow. Our company comes on Friday.
Have a good night.

eyes light up when she sees the blueberry pancakes. she places her pancake on her plate and meticulously removes all the blueberries and puts them in a neat pile. then she butters her pancake and pours maple syrup on it. then she cuts the pancake in tiny little squares and places a blueberry on the square and puts another piece of pancake on top and makes blueberry pancake sandwiches.

  Hi Laka
Ahhhh, Chyna wakes up to a wonderful smell .... bacon & eggs & pancakes and fruit! What else could a bird want?
She fills her crop belly then goes and thanks Mama Ruthie and Papa Peter for the wonderful feast.
Now it's time for a good sunbath. She and Laka head for their beach chairs.
I sure hope that mama Ruthie and her tooth feel better soon.
The sun was shinning and we had a windy 50 degree day. Dad put the patio furniture out, this is good! My beach chair is ready and my shades are on. I hope this continues thru derby weekend.

Dixie,Kallie,Peepers and Candida and Celine all inhale as they sleep in the early morning hours and their nares are filling up with the enticing aroma of blueberry pancakes,bacon and eggs!As they slowly awake with the delicious smells assaulting their nares they slowly open their eyes and roll over and see in the distance the large buffet table that holds every imaginable food that they love!They jump up and race to the table and each grab a plate and they load their plates with lots of blueberry pancakes,pineapple,apple and guava and orange too!There is just so many things to choose from.Their beaks are just watering madly as they can smell and see the food laid out before them.As Peepers is piling food on his plate,he starts eating whatever he puts down before he grabs another thing to put on his plate,he looks behind him and watches Kallie doing the same thing!They are so enjoying their time on the beach and they are so happy to be staying longer also!
Poor Momma Ruthie having to have a tooth pulled!She must've been in so much pain to have the novocaine wear off and to have been shot twice before it worked that's just painful!Please tell Momma Ruthie that she is in our thoughts and prayers that her boo boo is feeling better,that must be so horrible to taste the medicine in everything she eats and drinks.YUCK!Please let us know how she's doing as we all worry about her here,Mom has been putting her name in the special intentions book at church every week.Please give her a big birdie hug from Mom and we all send her warm wing hugs! We just hate to see her in such pain!

  Hi Laka
What a wonderful beach party you are throwing!

Mom and I have our daily routine, and since she knows how I like a schedule she pretty much sticks to it. She gets up each morning between 6:30 and 6:45 when Dad leaves for work and we have breakfast. I have my fresh fruits and veggies, and she either has a bowl of cereal with bananas (which I share) or a mug of chicken broth and milk (which I definitely do NOT share!). Then after about an hour she goes back to bed for a nap because she has only had 5 or 6 hours of sleep. Around 9 she comes back and I get my play stand with the treat cups cleaned before she fills them with my pellets for the day and a nutriberry goes into my barrel o' fun. Well, all was moving around just fine this morning, but she forgot all about my pellets! When she finally remembered around 9:30 I was quite annoyed. I scolded her the entire time she was setting it all up, but I forgave her after the nutriberry. Amazing what those things will do to soothe a ruffled feather or two.

Then after Mom and Dad did the Saturday grocery run (good grapes today, YAY~!) Mom came back in, and as she entered my room Dad handed her a Kiddo-sized tater chip! I love those things, and I savored every single crumb. I can be a very messy eater, but chips are one thing I do not waste, since I don't get even my little ones very often. No sun bath today, but any day with a chip in it is a good one.

Voting in the hat contest is off and running, but we didn't have the turn out to vote I was hoping for yesterday. If you want to just use the Hat Avatar in my aviary (or Falco's) to get there, feel free. Remember every flock gets two votes each day: one for a gent and one for a lady. VOTE!!! Remember even if you didn't have a pic to enter, you can participate by voting. And if you did enter, why aren't you over there voting for yourself?!! And if you did vote, why thank you!

  Hi Laka♥
Now that was a great bonfire and sleepover! We can go on our date tonight, okay?
It's another cool day, in the mid 40s right now, but maybe it will be warmer next week.
Yesterday mom and her sis went to the President's Circle open house and reception at the Animal Rescue League. Between the shelter and the center, they treated over 12,000 animals last year! You already heard about the nearly 3000 wildlife animals and their success rate, and now here's the great news--ARL adopted out over 7000 of the 9000 animals they took in, isn't that fantastic? Mom's sis was glad there were no kittens in yet this year, but mom is hoping she will go back in a couple of weeks, when they will be inundated with kittens, and pick one up for herself.
This morning mom got to do the avian nursery. She was so glad to be somewhere other than the RVS room again. It was a real pleasure to clean bird cages and feed birds. There is a red bellied woodpecker in there right now, as well as robins, doves, and a waxwing. The center was very happy to accept mom's check for Peppino's hugs and kisses for $105. It will help a lot. Mom also signed up to do a tour there on Tuesday and to work the marathon event on Friday of next week. Hope she can just get a morning shift for that event.
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie♥

I'm having so much fun! I loved the beach, campfire and the surprise fireworks ... very pretty. I do like to sleep in the tent under the stars.
Hmmm, I wonder what we will have for breakfast on our last day here?
Today was cold and windy with light snow and a high of 30 degrees. This is wrong! I'm protesting, I want 70 degrees! I had to drink my hot tea with my fuzzy slippers on. I should be wearing flip flops!

  Hi Laka
Every day, animals are put into critical danger when their natural habitats are jeopardized by human activity. Together, we can protect the one earth we all rely on.

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me. ?
HAPPY EARTH DAY
love Queen Boo Boo

Pookie and Dixie after doing the happy dance go and grab a bite to eat under the tent which has a sign that says Thank you to all Sand Castle buildlers.You're all winners and Congratulations!
They look at the wonderful big spread on the buffet that was just for them!
Dixie's and Pookie's eyes just pop right out of their heads,just looking at the big platter of veggies and an extra huge platter of mixed fruit and pineapple cake and chocolate pies and cookies and brownies!Dixie's beak is starting to drool a big pool of drool all over the floor just wanting to dive into it all at once,he looks at Pookie who is doing the same and both their tummies are complaining loudly!Oh how cool is this?Dixie says!Dixie can't believe that Momma Ruthie went all out and got all this beakwatering scrumptious food all just for them!Dixie glances once more at their "M" sandcastle and as a tear slips down his face,just thinking of sweet Mario and how much he would've loved being here with them all!
Pookie wraps his wing around his buddy Dixie and tells him its all right,I just know Angel Mario is looking down on us and is so very proud!Dixie agrees and tells Pookie he's right about that!Pookie goes on and tells him that he and his flock should be so proud of the work they all did,It's the most beautiful sand castle ever!
Pookie gives his friend a little nudge and tells him how proud he is of him!Dixie looks at Pookie,a little sniffle in his voice,and tells him thank you so much!
Let's go and eat!Pookie passes out the plates to Dixie and his flock and tells them to chow down,you all deserve it for the hard work you put in!
Momma Ruthie smiles and takes pictures of all the sand castle builders and their Masterpieces before the tide has a chance to wash them all away and they become just a memory only!
Everyone will now have a copy of the picture and she'll frame it for them and give it to them later.
Everyone right now will have a good time,enjoying this wonderful buffet that Momma Ruthie worked so hard on for them! You are all winners!

  Hi Laka
CONCLUSION ON SPIDERS
Cellar spiders which have super long legs like daddy long legs (which are not spiders) love to eat ants. if you have those tiny tiny little ants running around in your house cellar spiders will eat all of them.
3. Antarctica is the only continent in the world where you will absolutely not find a spider. There are creatures who live there like whales and penguins, but people and spiders stay away from the Antarctica lifestyle. because arthropods like to keep their butts warm, just like humans do.
4. Spiders possess shyness as a personality trait just like people .Spiders, even large ones like tarantulas, are docile in nature. Most spiders are inherently shy critters. They get squished more often than they actually bite humans. Spiders will defend themselves in rare cases, but these buggies mostly get scared and hide in the presence of danger.Because of their shyness they ALMOST NEVER seek out humans to bite. When spiders and humans come in contact, it is usually when they are looking for warmth or just happen to be seeking out food and we bump into each other.
5. Although we have all the eyes that we need, both spiders and humans rely on our other senses.You would think having eight eyes would be all the eyes that you need to see perfectly, but for most spiders that is not the case. Nearly all spiders have eight simple eyes, but having six more peepers than us, doesn’t make their vision any more superior since most arachnids have poor eyesight. On average, over six out of 10 people need to wear glasses or contact lenses, making our visual impairments almost identical to that of spiders. Instead, both spiders and people depend on our other senses, like sound, taste and touch, to help us survive. Nobody’s perfect; not people with two eyes nor arthropods with a whopping eight.

it is a pain to remove all those webs, mainly because they gather so much dust but consider letting spiders be or releasing them back outside the next time you see arachnid amigos in your home. plus i find them quite tasty

  HiLaka
the more spiders we have around the less chance for the need of any poisonous insecticides.for the next 2 days i would like to talk about SPIDERS. my mom and Cori are very afraid of them but would never hurt one .Spiders are one of our most misunderstood creatures. There are movies about them taking over your house, they are depicted in autumn decorations designed to scare people,but spiders are just like us. From our mutual disdain for mosquitoes and some species tend to their young, we have a lot in common with this arachnid . Plus, We need spiders in order to survive.Before you squash that spider that you just spied crawling across your floor, consider these five fascinating facts about these eight-leggers.
1. Mother spiders stay with their babies, just like we do.Almost all spider moms protect their young by creating a safe “blanket” made of silk to cover them with and then guard the sac until hatching. The moms that don’t leave or die before their babies hatch will stay with their wee spiderlings and care for them. The wolf spider, who is known as super-spider-mom, will carry the egg sac with her until her tots hatch. Once the wolf spider babies are born, they climb onto mom’s back and ride along until they are full developed. They survive by eating the yolk from their egg sacs. The wolf spider babies go everywhere that mama goes, including during her hunting. If a baby falls off of her back, she will halt what she’s doing and wait for the little bugger to hop back on. Comb-footed spider mamas also stay with their little ones and feed their offspring with liquid from their mouths. This all sounds a bit like attachment parenting.
2. We have the same archenemy: the mosquito. over one million people die each year due to mosquito-borne illnesses? There are 10 major diseases that are caused by these little buzzers, including Malaria and the West Nile virus. Well, our friend the spider eats those pesky pests. In fact, certain spider species, like the Malaysian jumping spider, get their nutrition solely from mosquitoes. Another jumping spider from Africa is known to eat mosquitoes exclusively, unlike most spiders who eat mosquitoes and other insects. Spiders are also known to stalk mosquitoes like cats

SOME SAD NEWS:
New data from the highly secretive arm of the U.S. Agriculture Department known as Wildlife Services reveals it killed more than 2.7 million animals during fiscal year 2014, including wolves, coyotes, bears, mountain lions, beavers, foxes, eagles and other animals deemed pests by powerful agricultural, livestock and other special interests.Despite increasing calls for reform after the program killed more than 4 million animals in 2013, the latest kill report indicates the reckless slaughter of wildlife continues, including 322 gray wolves, 61,702 coyotes, 580 black bears, 305 mountain lions, 796 bobcats, 454 river otters, 2,930 foxes, three bald eagles, five golden eagles and 22,496 beavers. The program also killed 15,698 black-tailed prairie dogs and destroyed more than 33,309 of their dens.

“It’s sickening to see these staggering numbers and to know that so many of these animals were cut down by aerial snipers, deadly poisons and traps,” said Amy Atwood, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “These acts of brutality are carried out every day, robbing our landscapes of bears, wolves, coyotes and other animals that deserve far better. Wildlife Services does its dirty work far from public view and clearly has no interest in cleaning up its act.”Agency insiders have revealed that the agency kills many more animals than it reports.

Many animals – especially wolves, coyotes and prairie dogs – were targeted and killed on behalf of livestock grazers or other powerful agricultural interests. Wildlife Services does not reveal how many animals were wounded or injured, but not killed.
The new data also show that hundreds animals were killed unintentionally including 390 river otters, as well as hundreds of badgers, black bears, bobcats, coyotes, foxes, jackrabbits, muskrats, raccoons, skunks, opossums, porcupines and 16 pet dogs.

The data show that the federal program has refused to substantially slow its killing despite a growing public outcry, an ongoing investigation by the Agriculture Department’s inspector general, and calls for reform by scientists, members of Congress and nongovernmental organizations.“Wildlife Services continues to thumb its nose at the growing number of Americans demanding an end to business as usual,” said Atwood. “This appalling and completely unnecessary extermination of American wildlife must stop.”Just since 1996 Wildlife Services has shot, poisoned and strangled by snare more than 27 million native animals.

  While they wait for the judging
Cookie and Pookie sort through their shells picking out which ones to use for mama Ruthie's bracelet and which ones to use for Laka's.

Do you think maybe we should use the extra ones to put a few more decorations on our castle ? This flat one can be a shield over the door - and then we can make a sword out of these broken pieces . . .

  Hi Laka♥
Thanks for coming with me to the milonga. I loved the food, too! Here are some sunflowers for our sand castle, I brought them from home.
Nothing special going on today, just chilling with mom. She is still working outside to clean up after the winter, but it's too cool to take us out there yet. Maybe Saturday, it's supposed to go to 70 then. Tonight mom will go to dinner with her sister, then clean our cages again. It's a recycling week here, so she'll be cleaning up all the paper we get in the mail on a daily basis too. Tomorrow all the extra newspapers will go to the wildlife center for use there.
I hope you are having a good day, getting some springlike weather, and of course, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie♥

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Cookie and Pookie smile at LakaAolani
then they go looking for TWO pieces of twine - one to make a bracelet for mama Ruthie and one to make one for Laka - then they sit right near their castle (to guard it till the judging) and start to work on making bracelets for their favorite females . . .

About how big should I cut this for Laka's wing ? And mama Ruthie's wrist ? Pookie and Cookie look at each other and shrug their shoulders . . . what if we just string some seashells and then they can tie them off ?

  Pookie and Cookie sit back
after finishing their sand castle and LakaAolani comes over to ooooh and ahhh over it. Pookie and Cookie wink at each other knowing they've done a great job :)

Then the three friends decide to make something pretty for mama Ruthie with the leftover shells they have . . . if they glue them all together, it could be a bracelet ! Does mama Ruthie like bracelets asks Cookie ?

  Boo Boo can't decide what kind
of castle to make so she goes off hunting for sea glass to put on the castle when she is done even though she hasn't even started building it yet

  Cookie and Pookie
start with the base, then the turrets, windows, and doors . . . hey, how about a moat around our castle ?

Cookie heads for another pail of water while Pookie digs out the trench for their moat. When they finish they get the pail of treasures to decorate - let's find some seaweed to make flags for the tower !
