Every birde settle in, it’s a long way out to Uranus. Who giggled?? 2,870,990,000 km (1,783,331,755 miles, Yes that’s in the billions!) to be exact. There are snacks in the storage bins to munch on.

Uranus, the first planet discovered in modern times, was discovered by William Herschel while systematically searching the sky with his telescope on March 13, 1781.

Uranus has been visited by only one spacecraft, Voyager 2 on Jan 24 1986. At the time of Voyager 2's passage, Uranus' South Pole was pointed almost directly at the Sun. This is the only planet in our solar system to be so inclined.

Like other gas planets, Uranus has rings, 13 of them in fact. The brightest is known as the Epsilon ring.

Like Jupiter's rings they are very dark but like Saturn's they are made up of fairly large particles ranging from 10 meters in diameter down to fine dust.
Uranus has 27 named moons ranging in size from 789 km to only 5 km.
Well it’s a long trip back. We all have time for a nap before we are home.

Back to Jupiter to see the rings now. It was believed that Jupiter did not have rings like Saturn but it was found that it has very dark ones. The rings were discovered by Voyager 1 in 1979 on its way through our solar system. Later Voyager 2, the Galileo orbiter and the New Horizons sent back pictures of the ring and moons in February & March 2007.

There are 3 main sections named Halo, Main and Gossamer. There is really only 1 ring with no discernable separation.

Most of the stuff in the rings is dust & very small rocks that come from collisions with the moons. A couple of the moons are within the area of the ring. These moons make notches in the rings as the dust & rocks are attracted by the moons gravity wells

Ok, we have to go now. Back to Earth and a calm atmosphere we can stand up in and breathe without a space suite.

  Hello
Are you being a good birdie??

Dec. 13: Ms BBs BOTM campaign.
Only 12 more days till the big bird in the red suit comes!

All of your votes are deeply appreciated. If I don’t thank you every day its only because there is only so much time in one day.

You won’t be needing warm coats or rain coats today. Today we are leaving the confines of the Earth’s gravity. We are headed to the moon. Don’t worry, the shuttle is space worthy. I had Geordi La Forge do a level 1 diagnostic on it last night. There are little bags attached to all the perches. That’s in case the artificial gravity goes out.

Humans have left almost 400,000 pounds of man-made material on the surface including more than 70 vehicles. Any birdie want a ride on one of the rovers they left here?
Humans have brought 382 kg of the Moon back to Earth by Apollo and Luna missions. The Moon rocks are now in collections all over Earth. Why bother!! A bird cant play with a bunch of rocks!!!

Look out the right side windows and you will see the first spacecraft to crash into the Moon. It was the Soviet Luna 2 rocket on Sept. 14th 1959 and it was crashed on purpose. Yes, the Soviets were the first to the moon. But 10 years later, in 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.

On the same side coming up is the crash site of the USA Ranger 4 in 1962. It too was crashed on purpose.
The first spacecraft to soft land was Luna 9, USSR, in 1966. Yep, the Soviets were first again! Surveyor 1, USA, soft landed the same year. Many more craft have crashed or soft landed on the moon. Some did not crash on purpose!!!

Apollo 11 was the first mission to land humans on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
Keep looking and you will see boot prints and wheel tracks. There are 7 American flags scattered around the moon. 6 of these flags are beveled to be still standing on their poles. There is said to be 1 Soviet flag here that was carried by that rocket that crashed here on September 14th, 1959.
There are also golf balls from Alan Shepard's driving practice during Apollo 14, and Alan Bean's silver astronaut pin.
Here we have the Fallen Astronaut statuette left by the crew of Apollo 15 to honor the 3-crew members that died in the Apollo 1 crew module fire on January 27, 1967.
May we have a moment of silence for
Virgil "Gus" Ivan Grissom, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF
Edward Higgins White, II, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF
Roger Bruce Chaffee, Lieutenant Commander, USN
Thank you.

Out the left side windows you can see the descent stages from Apollo 11 LM-5 (Eagle) and Apollo 12 LM-6 (Intrepid).

Apollo astronauts have left numerous reflectors that Scientists can bounce lasers off of to determine the exact distance from the Earth to the Moon. They were left there by the Apollo 11, 14, and 15 astronauts and by the Lunokhod 1 and Lunokhod 2 USSR unmanned missions.
These are what Sheldon, Leonard, Radgish & Howard bounce a laser beam off of on Th

Its Hump Day. What better day to go where we are headed!

I hope no birdie is afraid of heights cause we are off to the highest spot on Earth. Tomorrow will be the 2nd highest spot.

1st up, (yea that’s a pun!), we have Mount Everest, at 29,035 feet above sea level.
In 1856, the first published height of Everest, then known as Peak XV, at 29,002 ft (8,840 m) was established by the Great Trigonometric of British India. The 29,029 ft that is the mostly widely height accepted was first determined by an Indian survey in 1955.
There have been many other measurements taken by other countries but they are all around the same. When you get that high what is a couple feet!!!

In 1865, Everest was named after Sir George Everest by the Royal Geographical Society upon a recommendation by Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India.
Although Tibetans had called Everest "Chomolungma" for centuries, Waugh was unaware of this because Tibet and Nepal were closed to foreigners.
There is a lot of conflict over the mountain because the international border between China and Nepal runs across the precise summit point.
If you were hatched at the top what country would you call yours???

The first successful ascent and decent of the mountain was made by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on 29 May, 1953.
219 Humans have gone to the Human Rainbow Bridge since 1922 when the mountain was first tried to be climbed.
Why climb mountains when you can take a helo to the top like Didier Delsalle did

In May 2005, pilot Didier Delsalle of France landed a Eurocopter AS350 B3 helicopter on the summit of Mount Everest. That is the highest a helo has ever flown.

  Hi Jazz
Since its going to be Thanksgiving in a few short weeks I think that we are all going to meet in the kitchen and start preparing some things for the Thanksgiving feast we will be having here at the Castle! We will go shopping for some of the supplies and then come back to the castle and cook and bake them up! The first thing on our list is some Apple Stuffing!
APPLE STUFFING


¾ cup of butter
¾ cup of milk
1/3 cup of chopped celery with leaves
1 cup of chopped onion salt to tast
1/2teaspoon of marjoram
½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
8 cups of soft bread cubes
2 cups of washed,quartered,pared and diced apples

1. In a saucepan mix together the butter,milk,celery,onion,salt,marjoram,cinnamon and pepper; cook over low heat until the vegetables are tender.
2. Blend the bread cubes,and apples.
3. Lightly toss the seasoned,melted butter with the bread mixture.
4. Cool the stuffing completely.
5. Stuff the turkey just before roasting
6. Leftover stuffing can be baked in a covered baking dish in the oven with the turkey during the last half hour of roasting.

We'll all go shopping for all the ingredients and then we can come back and make up enough for everyone to share!

(about 1 ½ pounds), separated sharp Cheddar cheese
into stalks
1 can (10 ¾ ounces) condensed ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs,
cream of celery soup tossed with 1 tablespoon
melted butter
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Boil or steam broccoli for just a few minutes, so it stays crunchy. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, blend the soup, milk, and Cheddar cheese. Drain broccoli and arrange in an ungreased shallow 6”x10” baking dish. Pour soup mixture over broccoli. Top with bread crumbs. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

  Hi Jazz
Baked Pumpkin

Cut a 3-inch circle around the stem and remove. Then remove the seeds. (Use the seeds for pumpkin seed recipes.) Placing the pumpkin on a cookie sheet, bake for 1-1 ½ hours or until it is tender. Pierce with a fork to check if it is done.
You can also cut the pumpkin in quarters and place face down on a buttered cookie sheet. Cool. Use the leftover pumpkin in recipes or serve as is. You can freeze the leftovers.
This is an excellent food for weaning baby birds and for parent birds feeding babies. I have a friend who serves this on top of Zwieback teething cookies. She will sometimes soak the Zwieback and then add it into the mix.
For older birds who are hard to get interested in new foods, I have found that sprinkling millet or chopped nuts on top will encourage them to eat.

TIP: At Halloween, buy an extra pumpkin for your bird. While the kids are busy carving theirs, you can cook one for your bird. Save the seeds for an extra treat.

I want to thank you again for all the love and supporting votes you have been giving me each and everyday! I just couldn't have done it without you!

  Hi Jazz
Millet Mac and Cheese

I was given a female cockatiel that never ate anything but millet before she came to live with me. She was especially stubborn when it came to trying new things. Using this recipe, I got her eating new foods in no time at all. This is a great one for getting small to medium-size birds to try new foods. For larger birds, try chopped sunflowers or pistachio nuts.

1 box any brand macaroni and cheese ¼ cup grated carrots
½ cup Kaytee pellets ¼ cup chopped broccoli
½ cup millet

Make the macaroni and cheese according to the instructions on the box. Add in the pellets and grated carrots. Sprinkle the millet on top, lightly pushing it into the macaroni with the back of a spoon. (My tiels loved the millet and started eating that, but because it was pushed into the macaroni and cheese, they ended up having to eat some of that as well. Now the same tiels will eat anything that I give them.) Putting millet in this dish will entice even the pickiest of birds. (You can also try mega millet for larger birds.)

HELPFUL HINT: If you don't have broccoli, you can add cauliflower or asparagus instead.

I can't thank you enough for all the love and supporting votes you have been sending me each and every day! I just couldn't have done it without you! I'm so sorry for the short visit but Mom has another one of those out everyday of the week things going on again. She was supposed to stay home with us yesterday but skin sis called and wanted her to spend the day with her and Nana,so she didn't get home til after 6:30 last night,Wednesday she has to take Nana for her errand runs,Thursday is skin bro's birthday and he wants to go to Longhorn which is over the Bourne Bridge so that's another full day and part of the evening gone,Friday Mom has to take Nana to the eye surgeon to see just why she's not seeing clearly as she should be and why she still has double vision! Mom is relying on my dad to help me out with my BOTM visits so I don't get far behind! I do hope he does a good job of it for me!

  Hi Jazz
What a beautiful day here in Ontario. It's already warm outside so maybe I'll get out for a while. My Momma has a lot of birds to care for. It's a full time job looking after us. She says she should get paid but....well we don't have jobs LOL!
I was looking at your photos. Is your head black or green? In the pictures it looks greenish but I know it is suppose to be black. Just curious.
Being a Conure you might always chase your new frother Tatoo. Conures sure are bossy. I have Zoey a cinnamon Green Cheek that loves nothing better then to dive bomb my head when I'm out on my playstand. Momma Deb keeps telling her smarten up but she simply does it again. hehehehe.
Well, I better get Momma going. She likes to relax when she gets up. That just isn't part of MY plan today!
hugs and vote
Sassy
