  Hey Peppy,
Sorry my blog is late, mom was tired when she came home from work and took a birdie nap.

I think the older hoomans get the more sleep they need. Shish!!

Anywho, today we will learn some words that if you come to Hawaii you will definitely need to know.

For example the restrooms have hydro glyphics and only says Kane (Ka ne) male or Wahine (wa-hee-nay) female. That's where a lot of tourists shake their heads trying to figure out which is which.

Also if you hear the word pupule (pooh-poo-lay) that means crazy; insane. Most common use is crazy.

Here's a nice phrase called Pehea 'oe? (Pay-hay-ya oy) (oy as in toy) meaning how are you?

A lot of us has to do this every week or get the trash out. 'Opala (oh-pa-la). Yes every week we hafta take the 'Opala out. :)

Here's a good one I think everyone will like. 'Ono (oh-no) meaning delicious, tasty. Most common use delicious, as in taste of food. :)

This one everyone had some of. It's called 'ohana (oh-ha-na) or family.

This one refers to my Angel frother Pookie. He was very niele (née-eh-lay) meaning curious, inquisitive, a busy body or nosy person or bird. Hehehe

This one we all say to each other. Malama pono (ma-la-ma po-no) meaning be careful, take care , or to care for. Most common use: Take care. :)

Hope you all have a fun time pronunciating Hawaiian phrases or words.

Soon everyone will be speaking Hawaiian.

Malama pono! :)

A Hui ho (ah who-ee ho) until we meet again or see you later.

Sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses along with a vote.

Love,

Laka Aolani, candidate for BOTM

  Hi Peppino!
Mom likes your limerick very much. She likes them all SO much that she c/p'd them in a little folder that's titled "Sam's Pirate Hatchday Celebration 2/3/2016. So, I would say, yes, we like them very much.

Mom would have come back & told you that but she has been stung by a wasp that she's been having to put all her attention on it to doctor it. She's been taking benedryl, drinking LOTS of water, & putting cortisone cream on the bite. It got her on the back of the neck & swelled up pretty quickly. Mom was by herself & it was pretty late. At least around here, people are working people & they are up & gone early in the morning. So, they go to sleep pretty early too.

Mom insisted that her mate call the pest control guys to come out here & look at that chimney. That's where the wasps are coming from. Mom's mate put up a window screen & duck taped it to the front of the fireplace. That wasn't an easy job since it's made of stone, not brick or tile. The rascally wasps will slowly check out the perimeter of the opening until they find the place of least resistance & squeeze themselves out of there under that tape. This has been going on since September with the window screen duct taped to the fireplace. But they are certain that is where they are coming from because of the ones who've died & are laying there where they can be seen. This situation of wasps getting in has been going on for decades, though, & Mom was always told "he'd take care of it". When Mom was younger, she could chase those wasps around & dispatch of them in a swift manner, but now she's getting to slow for this nonsense & she's demanded a "professional" come in & do the job that her mate should've done years ago. Penny pinching #X>@! Yep. I said it & I mean it!

Anyway, we're here now & we are honored to help you on your way to the big 10,000! That's a lot of goose eggs for sure!

See ya tomorrow! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  HI PEPPINO
they might have purchased the fox online from an exotic animal dealers. grown tired of it and figured since it s a wild animal it could survive outside without giving a thought to whether the animal knows how to hunt or can it survive in our weather. having a lot of money to buy things doesn't mean you have any brains or compassion. look how many people release parrots and other pets they have into the wild when they are tired of taking care of them.

Oh it really made my Mom's day to hear Aunt Arlene's wonderful voice!It was such a stressful day what with getting my dad's things ready and then trying to get the errands done before the storm hit.
My Mom agrees with Aunt Arlene that one shouldn't be grabbing any wild animal and making pets out of them,you have no idea what diet they need to properly survive and if they will be a danger to you or others living in your home and then to dump them out in the cold without any means of survival for themselves is just awful!There are plenty of dogs,cats etc that are waiting to be adopted if these people really want a pet to care for as long as they don't do to them what they have done to this poor fennec fox!We see alot of that here,in the summer,parents will get their kids a dog or cat and they have them all summer and in the fall when its time to go back home to school,work etc.the poor dog,cat etc gets left behind to fend for itself in the oncoming cold and storms.How nasty and mean can you get!They should never have gotten an animal to begin with!
That little flying squirrel is so funny keeping her stash of nuts in that pillowcase.I wonder how she's going to leave carrying that big heavy bag of nuts over her shoulder?LOL!
Its been a cold windy snowy day since early this morning.We are still waiting for our dad to come home and the plow guy to plow our driveway so my dad can come home.He definitely will be coming home later on and Mom will have something warm for him for dinner and he'll probably shower and go to bed til he has to be in again in the morning or another 2am call in!

  Hi Peppino&Falco
That is so interesting the pics of the dinosaurs and especially the Pterosaurs,you'd never know just how much info on them is out there and Mom will take us to the AMNH.org site to check them out in full detail!
This morning was a bright sunny day with the high's for the day of 41 the lows of 33 and right now at 6:30pm its 36.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she got dad his breakfast and got the coffee going.Dad helped Mom load the car with the trash and the recyclables and Mom made 15 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for my dad for the work week.Mom makes extras for whenever its going to be snowing so in case he can't get home he'll have plenty to eat.Then she got dressed and left to go to Nana's.When she got there she loaded the rest of Nana's trash in Nana's car and all the recyclables and they took off to the dump which was crowded.Mom had to wait for a spot to park to get rid of the recyclables.Then she got rid of the trash and from there they went to the bank and from there they went to Falmouth to Shaw's/Star Market grocery store and was that ever crowded.You can hear a pin drop whenever Mom and Nana go on a weekday.Both Mom and Nana got their 3 day specials,a bag of tangerines for $1.89 a bag,pizza and bags of lettuce and frozen veggies for $10.00 for 10 and Mom got 10 bags of those.When Mom got back to Nana's she helped Nana unpack her groceries and skin sis came over and wanted to take Mom and Nana out for some Fro Yo and right before skin sis came over,my dad called and wanted Mom to come home soon as he has to go to work at 3:00am.Mom,Nana and skin sis left and went to have FroYo and was that place crowded also,there was no place to sit.A nice girl got up and gave Nana her seat.After they finished there they went back to Nana's and Mom left to go home to get dad some dinner and to pack his cooler lunch box and get that ready.She cleaned our cages for the night and then did the dishes.My dad went to bed to get some sleep before he had to get up and go to work as he won't be getting much sleep in the next several days.We are going to have snow here starting at 7:00am Monday morning and its going to keep snowing right into Wednesday.We are supposed to have anywhere from 7 to 12 inches.Mom is so hoping that we don't lose our power this time.We are going to have winds of 40mph and Blizzard conditions in The Mills tomorrow.Oh Joy!Mom and all of us can't wait for Summer to get here!

  Hello Peppino~
I hope you had a great day! We are getting our notes done and then mom will finish the filing. It's nice to have all the paperwork cleaned up and put where it should be! Mom got the hallway cleaned too. She thought maybe she wouldn't have time but Jennifer watched McKenzie for her so she could get it done. Now McKenzie is after Merlin again. She just won't quit. Mom keeps moving her away but she doesn't stay away for very long. Mom is trying to figure out how to build something up off the floor for Merlin to sit in. She has seen something like that before on the internet.
Have a wonderful evening buddy!

  Hi Peppino!
Boy, Mom's mate is a huge Panthers fan & we're guessing that the game isn't going to well for the Panthers just from all the yelling, flaming insults he's hurling at the TV, so Mom is laying low in the computer room & not even being in there.

We are VERY interested in the dinosaur information. I never knew that the Pterosaurs aren't "real" dinosaurs & they've determined that they have hairs on them?? That is fairly new, isn't it? Mom feels like for the first 10 years of her son's life, he would get every available dinosaur book he could get his hands on, even after all the children's versions, he started on the adult books about dinosaurs & would need Mom's help. Mom didn't want to reel in his curiosity, maybe he would grow up to be a paleontologist or something. But one day he woke up & he didn't want to read about them anymore. When Mom thinks about it, she thinks it's when he started noticing girls! So, Mom & him stopped looking at all the dinosaur books.

The pictures look greyt in your gallery of the Pterosaurs fossils. Imagine seeing one of those flying around! YIKES! I wonder how strong one of those big ones would be. Do you think they could fly away with a grown human? If so, I know some Republicans we could feed them to...err....I didn't say that.

The other day, Mom took me into her bedroom & had my travel cage on her bed. She made this big deal that there was NO WHERE to put me so she asked me to stand on the top of that cage. She went to close her door & before she could...ZOOM....I was out the door and back on my cage in the kitchen. She came back into the kitchen & told me, "Sammy, you have to come to Mom's room. I have some treats in there. Please?" I just looked at her matter of fact and just said, "no". I wouldn't say anything else but "no". I would say it very sternly, too, like Mom does to the cats. She kind of squinted at me like she was thinking of something & went back to her bedroom. She stayed there, too, & I started calling & whistling for her. All she would say is, "no". I used to think that was such a liberating word until Mom gave me a taste of my own medicine. I asked for a treat. All she said was, "no". I asked for some water, same thing. "no". So, I got very quiet. Then before long, Mom was sitting on her bed holding the treats she wanted to give me & I flew to her! I didn't land on that cage but I came to her shoulder. She gave me a treat. I was happy then but she wouldn't give me anymore until I got on the cage.

I hate to say I caved, but I did. I just could help myself as I watched her fidget with that cashew. Mmm...it looked so good & it should have been MINE! So, I hopped over to the top of that cage. Mom said she was very proud of me & gave me half the cashew. I was a happy bird. That's all we did yesterday. Mom was determined to get me on that cage & she did it! Or...I did it...for a yummy cashew. Golly, I wish I was better at resisting her but tho

  Hi Peppy,
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

  Hey Peppy,
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. :)

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!

Oh what beautiful nails Aunt Arlene has,such pretty colors and I just love the pretty purple and pink flowers with the diamonds!How very pretty!And that new chair looks so comfy and Mom loves the paisley designs all over it!Skin sis would love that pillow Aunt Arlene made,she just loves dogs especially Husky dogs!LOL!
Mom thinks the landline phone had a glitch in it from the storm,earlier in the day we lost our cable for a few minutes or more and Skin Bro saw alot of Verizon trucks in the neighborhood during the storm.After Nana called Mom the landline started working again,it was really weird.Nana has been trying to go shopping for a cell phone as she really wants one and every time she goes to talk to someone at Target or KMart they tell her that the $10.00 cell phones aren't $10.00 but cost $60.00 a month,she's tried the AARP phones at Walmart or Sears and its never the $10.00 monthly payment that she's looking for.Mom will check out the Credo one that Aunt Arlene has mentioned.Mom and Nana are hoping to look into cell phones this Wednesday,they were supposed to do that yesterday but the storm changed all that!
That sure is alot of people who came to see the Archaeopteryx tour,and I bet all those people really got to enjoy listening to Aunt Arlene's pretty voice!We know our Mom could listen to her for hours and hours!
We are all so proud of Aunt Arlene,we just love looking in your gallery and see the pic of the three of you together in a Valentines pic and what a beautiful job she did!
Candida scared Mom this morning when she went to change her cage papers.Mom saw red poop and immediately freaked out and thought that Candi was bleeding from her butt and then Mom remembered late last night when dad came home(around midnight)and Mom was serving him dinner then,he shared his dessert with her,the rainbow cake that Mom made,it was a layer of bright green cake,a layer of bright yellow,a layer of bright orange and then a layer of bright red and she must've been eating the bright red cake with our dad and that's what she was pooping out.Mom doesn't use frosting as she doesn't like it so she just makes the cake and will top it with fruit topping like pie filling or add a dab of whipped cream and that's what Candida and my dad had on the cake last night.For a very picky fid she'll eat anything my dad has in his plate.
We'll be going to vote for the Milonga pics tonight and vote for yesterday as Mom had to shut the computer off because of the power outage.

  oops...almost made it
Their hearing is unbelievable! Sheesh, this must be a noisy world to them, especially where they're used to it being just woods & now, new neighborhoods are popping up everywhere out here in the "rural" areas. Won't be rural for very much longer, but a great big suburb of Charlotte & Monroe (the county seat for the county where we live)

Well, Mom's got some special plans for me today. She's taking time to try to get me used to my travel cage. Good luck with THAT, HA!!! Hey, if I'm compliant with too much, she gets a big head. And her head is big enough for us to have a party on it!

See ya later, tater! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hello Peppino!
A good morning (still) to you, buddy-bird! Well, the deer have come back. It's so nice to see them. Mom counted 9 BIG does yesterday, slowly grazing into our lawn. Oh, our grass is dormant, it's zoysia, but there are the here & there wild onion or wild strawberries that grow through during winter time. Whatever is growing from the cleared out woods unto the actual start of the lawn, they were enjoying it very much. They must have bedded down there for the night because the cats were acting skiddish but finally came in & settled down. At least, 4 hours or so of it anyway. Mom saw them again this morning, same place grazing still, so they didn't go far if at all. Mom laughs because if they bedded down where they were grazing, well, that's right where the hunter sets up his tree stand. heeheehee!

The deer kept going in & out of the tree line, like there were more of them that we couldn't see because of the forest. Mom's got her money on that there was a buck in there keeping the does from wandering on through the yard & making their way across the big highway. It's an old deer trail that goes in that direction. There are dozens of trails that crisscross Mom's property. Mom's oldest brother, John, & the deer hunter say the property that is still covered by the forest, has more deer trails that they've ever seen! The hunter found 4 pieces here & there of antlers that were rubbed off & on the ground. He said it could've also been antlers broken off from them sparring, too. There's no way to tell that...at least not with the ones he found.

Mom hasn't seen anymore killed along the roads for what seems like a month now. When it was deer season, she was seeing so MANY deer laying dead from car collisions. The deer hunter who comes to our property said that it was the same way down in South Carolina, too. No observations of live deer, but many many dead on the side of the road. He said he may back off from hunting deer for a few years for their numbers to increase,( if they ever do). He said that sometimes it goes like that for some reason, you'll see deer everywhere, dead, from car collisions, but not see any live deer at all.

Mom thinks there has to be reasons for that. Maybe the deer are so terrified of humans that they will take risks that they normally wouldn't do to get as far away from humans as they possibly can. That drives them in crossing roads at the wrong times. Unless, too, another theory, maybe the increase of coyotes which has been reported lately, also has made them dash out & run from those predators in a haphazardly way & then collide with traffic. Whatever, the reason, it's during their mating time which is also "human hunting time" and all the other combined just makes them run without looking or watching like they normally do. They are a cautious animal. Their hearing is unbelievable! Sheesh, this must be a noisy world to them, especially where they're used to it being just woods & now, new neighb

  Hi Peppy,
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,

Laka Aolani, BOTM Candidate
