Mom was devastated after the loss of Joey and felt that she needed to get another 'tiel to help with the grieving process. She watched me several times in the pet store and I figured I had better do something to make her pick me! I decided to just be my cute self and it worked! She bought me on September 11, 2013. On the way home from Castlegar, she told me all about this wonderful cockatiel named Joey. I wish I could have known him! He must have been incredible!.

Hi! My name is Jazz-Thanks everybirdie! What a great surprise!

I am a Cockatiel from Nelson, BC.

Jazzy, Jazz-man, Jazzeroni

1 year old   M

Cockatiel

I love millet, nutriberries and I am just getting into birdie bread. I am starting to eat veggies too, so I like kale and broccoli.

I like the climbing tree and the cage top playgym on Chicklet's cage. I also like hanging out on the cage tops. MOm's hand for head scritches is pretty coveted too!

I really don't like having my wings clipped. Also, I don't understand why my flockmates aren't as friendly as I am. I just want to be friends with everyone! I am very affectionate and gregarious.

She loves me and treats me like a king. I mean she really dotes on me! I love the head scratches too. I think she will be easy to train:)

I like to sing as I do everything such as eating, preening, snoozing:) Also, when I do sing, I like to put my wings up when I hit a certain note as if to emphasize a point I am trying to make..

Just 'tiel with it!.

  Hi Jazz
Thanks for your continuing votes! I love hearing from you every day, too.
Today we are taking some public transportation! Not your common bus, subway, or trolley, but the INCLINE! (Pittsburgh does have the trolleys, buses, and a little subway system as well.) For anyone not from around here, the inclines are a way to get from downtown to either Mount Washington or the South Side, depending on which one you take. The first 2 shots are the Duquesne Incline, which goes up from Station Square in town to Mount Washington, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh that offers spectacular views of the downtown area. The next 2 are the Monongahela (or Mon) incline, which goes to the slopes of the South Side of the city. Believe it or not, there used to be public steps every bit as steep as the inclines are, where steelworkers and glassworkers would climb from their jobs to their homes. Imagine going up a couple hundred steps after a long day in the mill!
The inclines were originally used for that same purpose, but today they are mostly a tourist attraction, although some folks still park up there and ride to town because parking is cheaper on the hills. If you are a senior citizen, you ride for free, the same as all the public transportation in the city.
I hope you are having a fun day today and getting some sun. It's cold and kind of snowy here. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Jazz
This morning was a drab dismal day with pouring rain early in the morning and then the sun came out nicely for a short period of time,then it went back to being miserable and very foggy with the temperatures at 45, the highs were to be 50 and the lows are to be 35.Mom got us up early and cleaned our cages and gave us some Madagascar mix and pellets as she ran out of our bean mix,then skin sis came by and they took off for zumba class and then after they got out from there they went to Nana's and skin bro met them there and they went over the Bridge to Wareham to celebrate Nana's birthday at LongHorn restaurant as the skin sibs wanted to take her out.Mom had shrimp and lobster soup as did Nana and a mixed green salad,then after they were done skin sis ordered the chocolate stampede cake for Nana's birthday and was that ever good.Then they went to Target and did some shopping there,then went back to The Dollar Tree in Wareham as ours was set fire to in Falmouth,then they went back to Nana's and dropped skin bro off as he had to be somewhere for a job and they went to Marshall's and got more shopping done there.By the time they got back to Nana's it was well past 5:00pm,so skin sis drove Mom back home and she got dad a tv dinner as she was too tired to cook and it was too late to take something out,then she cleaned our cages,dad had already gave us our snacks and filled our pellet dishes and put the light on for for us and we were screaming for Mom to close our curtains.We hate seeing the darkness outside,its so scary to us!After Mom put the things she got away and served dad his dinner,she sat down and made out more cards to get in the mail in the morning.
Oh how wonderful for your Mom's friend to give her a nice phone with speaker phone and caller ID and the answering machine!Mom's phone has a speaker phone and its cordless also and she uses it all the time,my frother Kallie just hates the phone and will bite Mom if she has it in her hand while trying to hold him!I don't think that Kallie will ever get used to the phone as he's been around it since forever!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

Thanks for your votes and visits daily! I love hearing from everybirdie.
Yesterday we did everything Heinz, today we are moving to Frick. He was one of those robber baron guys, but he gave back some to the city. Not like Andrew Carnegie, who gave back a ton, but still...
Henry Clay Frick gave Pittsburgh Frick Park, a beautiful space in the eastern part of the city with tennis courts, many playgrounds, walking trails, a nature center, a running track, an exercise track, a bowling green, as well as many picnic pavilions. In my pics today, the fifth and sixth ones are of Frick Art museum, right across from the bowling greens of the park. The Museum isn't part of the park, though. It's a small museum with many beautiful paintings. In a neighboring block is Clayton, a Frick city mansion. One of the pics is the garage. A friend of mom's is curator of the cars. The mansion itself is huge, the rooms are incredible, there is great woodwork inside. Right now it's decked out for the holidays. I don't know if you can see it, but one of the pics shows the staircase draped in greens. There are tours conducted there when people request them.
I hope you are still enjoying your tour of Pittsburgh. I'm having fun bringing to you all the great areas of the city. Hope also that you are having a great day! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Jazz
This morning was a dull gray dismal day here no sun at all,the temperatures got up to 43 and it was not that warm but not that cold either.Mom got us up fairly early and cleaned our cages and then got ready to go take Nana out for her birthday lunch as Mom's sister was supposed to go with them but at the last minute she said she couldn't make it and she'd be down later on so Mom and Nana ran some errands before they went to lunch,they went to Christmas Tree Shop and checked out PetCo and then went to eat at the 99 Club where they both got a classic hamburger with butternut squash instead of the fries and coleslaw.They checked out the Gap and went to the post office and then came back to Nana's as it was getting dark and Mom didn't want to get stuck driving in the darkness,which it was nearly dark by the time she got into our driveway.Dad had come home first and he put our light on and gave us our snacks which made us happy while Mom made fresh sandwiches for dad's lunch for tomorrow and cleaned our cages for the night!Mom and dad finally got our tree up last night and its really beautiful and now we have something pretty to look at when we go in the tv room!Mom is going to be gone all day tomorrow as she has to go on her errands so it'll be another day that we're in lockdown.
Mom just had another hectic night here,she was on the phone and our fid sitters daughter called her and wanted Mom to go across the street to check on her,so she did and then she found out that the fid sitters phones were not working and she's got Life Alert and that wouldn't be working as both her phones were down,so then Mom had to go and get my dad's cell phone to bring it over to her so she could talk to her daughter and see for herself that she was all right,the fid sitter and then the fid sitter had Mom over there til way past nine so Mom is just getting to our visits now,she had thought that we could get our visits in and be done early but that's not going to happen,Mom is so tired but she will get as much of our visits in as possible as she's off and running again tomorrow and won't be home til late again!Mom wants to know whats it like to be bored?
We sure do hope that they do get your sweet Momma's car fixed in three days time!Does my Mom know what that's like and it sure is a pain in the tail feathers to be without your car whenever you need to go out,but then its good for us fids as it keeps Mom stranded at home with us!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Jazz
Thanks for stopping by again! I appreciate each blog and vote, and of course, all the hugs, too.
Today we're going to do everything Heinz! You may have noticed that Pittsburgh has some recurring names to things, Carnegie, Frick, Mellon, Heinz...
So the Heinz family built the Heinz plant on the North Side of the city, and they made 57 varieties of things, including Heinz Ketchup. (They also gave PA a great senator, John Heinz, who passed away at a young age.) Anyway, they have given a lot back to the city, so going from the last new pics (5&6) to the first they are 2 shots of Heinz Chapel. This is a nondenominational church located on the University of Pittsburgh campus, very close to the Cathedral of Learning (and the museum). One of mom's nieces got married there, it's a very popular place for weddings.
There are both exterior and interior views. The next 2 pics(3&4) are at Heinz field, the Great Hall. This is where the several Vince Lombardi trophies and super bowl rings, as well as lots of other Steeler memorabilia, are shown. It's like its own museum. The first 2 pics are the Heinz plant and the pickle pin!
When mom was young, Heinz plant tours were popular for kids. Her class toured the plant, and each kid was given a pickle pin at the end of the tour. They must have given out millions of pickle pins in their time here. Today the plant is owned by DelMonte, and lots of the stuff isn't made here any more, but the building still stands.
And we've seen Heinz Field and the Heinz History Museum already. So that's all things Heinz in our area! Thanks for reading, and hope you have a lovely day, and get lots of attention.
BTW, did you see the parrots singing carols on the new newsletter? They are really fun to watch. Hugs, Peppino

Mom was up early cleaning our cages and feeding us our breakfast so she could vacuum the house and see if she could get the tree out and ready with the lights to put in the windows and skin bro was at the door,he had walked the 3 or 4 miles down from the repair shop where he left his car to be serviced,he needed a new flange and his exhaust system had a leak in it so he waited with Mom and played with some of us until they called to let him know his car was ready.He's trying to get an inspection sticker for over a year now and keeps getting the Rejection sticker.Hopefully his car will pass it this time and there won't be anymore problems.Mom gave him some money to cover the cost of the bill as he didn't have enough.Then Mom drove him back to the repair shop,he was going to walk back again,but why do that when its so cold out?Mom gave him some breakfast and then drove the three minutes to where his car was and when she came home she quickly vacuumed the house and pulled the lights out and the tree,she still has to find room for the plants in the window where the tree is going!
Its a bright sunny day here but cold with 41 degrees and the highs are to be 44 with the lows of 35.Mom is happy as long as its not snowing out she'll deal with the cold!
Mom took us out to the acrylic cage to be in the sunshine and to have a view of the outside world and to give us a change of scenery!
Mom finally got our tree up tonight and the lights in the tv room window where the tree is in front of!Now we can look at the pretty lights!
Mom is off and running again tomorrow to take Nana out for her birthday lunch so who knows when Mom will be coming home again!This is going to be a week of Mom never being home!Uggggh!

Thanks for the votes every day! I really love hearing from you, too.
Before we leave the Strip, we have to visit St. Stanislaus Church, it's right in the center of things, there on Smallman Street! The first 2 pics in my gallery show one of the oldest churches in Pittsburgh, St. Stanislaus in the Strip. I thought while we were seeing churches, we could go back to Oakland and see St. Paul's Cathedral, the next 2 pics in my gallery. This is the biggest Catholic church in the area. The last 2 new pics are of East Liberty Presbyterian Church, built by the Mellons in the 1800s. The people in Pittsburgh at the time called it Mellon's Fire Escape! Maybe it was, who knows? Today at that church, there are organ recitals every week, and Taize music some evenings. If you don't know the Taize stuff, you should google it and listen to a piece or 2, it's beautiful singing.
So, tomorrow we will go back to Oakland to see other things, including Heinz Chapel.
You may have noted Heinz field, Heinz History museum, and now Heinz chapel; what's that all about? We'll talk more tomorrow! Hope you have a spectacular day. Hugs, Peppino

Skin sis came over early and whisked Mom away but first she wanted Mom to go up to the attic and get her Christmas Tree and she did that and then they took off to Nana's to make homemade ravioli's and they also made homemade linguine!Skin bro was there also and Nana had made a key lime cake and then they stopped for a break and had some of that with coffee before they continued on,then Nana sent out for take out Chinese and the skin sibs went out and picked it up for them while Mom and Nana continued making the ravioli's.In the end Mom and Nana made two dozen ravioli's and they made quite a bit of linguine so they should be all set for Christmas dinner now.When skin sis brought Mom home she had to get dad his dinner and us all fed and cleaned for the night.We were all yelling at her for being late again even though our dad was home,he fed us our pellets and gave us our snacks and put the light on for us but he didn't close our curtains,we don't like looking at the darkness outside the window and the spooky lights passing by from the cars going up and down the street!
Mom came home to find that Kallie was BOTD and now she really has her hands full with taking all three of us to write out our thank you's!I think by the time she catches Kallie up with his her fingers will start to fall off one at a time with all this frantic typing she's been doing for us three!That should teach her not to go out on a Sunday when she should be home with us and taking us to our visits,she wouldn't be so far behind if she just stayed home once in a while!
We just love our showers outside in the sunshine in the summer sun!We sure miss all that and I just love to lift my wings up high for Mom to get under my wing pits,and oh how wonderful to be drying off in the warm summer sun!Now Mom has to chase us all over the cage to give us a shower and the water just goes everywhere!Sometimes she'll put us all in the sink and spray us with the sprayer and get us all soaked!

Thanks for your ongoing support!
Today I posted one more pic of PennMac, the cheese counter! It is as popular as the meat counter, and always crowded.
Next, while we are in the Strip District, we have to visit the Heinz History Center. It's in the heart of the Strip District, and houses Pittsburgh history, including a trolley. They have traveling exhibits there, too. They are doing a Heinz exhibit right now though, featuring Heinz ketchup and pickles, haha. The first pic is one of an evaluation of antiques they do at the history center each August. From what the people bring in to be assessed, they film 10 to 12 episodes of Hidden Treasures, a TV show kind of like Antiques Roadshow, but with all Pittsburghers and their stuff. Some of it is quite valuable.
We probably should leave the Strip soon, so mom doesn't end up buying a lot of stuff. Some of the stores, like Wholey's fish market, are unique and wonderful to visit!
See you tomorrow with another installment of Pittsburgh stuff. Hope you are having a great day! Hugs, Peppino

Oh it sure is amazing all the idiots out there that shouldn't have the right to drive a car,truck or anything thats on wheels!And there are way too many that are on their phones oblivious of the world around them!That sure must've been scary for your poor sweet Mom to have to jump up on the sidewalk to avoid getting killed by the idiot flying down the one way street the wrong way,and its a wonder that no one was on the sidewalk while your poor Mom had to drive there!What a disaster that would've been for all involved!
We had bright sunshine for a good part of the day but by two this afternoon it started getting dark again,it was 39 and cold!My dad usually is home when Mom is late but he had to work all last night and never came home from his first shift so Mom was late coming home in the dark so we were very upset with her,but she came in afterwards to our room and gave us all a snack and closed the curtains for us,we hate having to see the darkness out the windows and the lights from the cars passing down the street!

  Hi Jazz
Thank you for your daily visits and votes!
Today we are visiting another area of Pittsburgh which used to be little known, but now is pretty much known to any tourist who comes here. It's the Strip District. No, people don't strip to go there, it's a strip along the Allegheny River very close to town. It used to be a large warehouse district where greengrocers, butchers, and other merchants went early in the day (think 3AM) to get fresh supplies for their stores. The public could also go there and shop. In mom's family, they went in the fall to get whole pigs for sausages and crates of grapes for wine. Over time, as more of the public went there to shop for goods, it became specialized into ethnic shopping areas. There were stores like the Pennsylvania Macaroni company, catering to Italians, Stamboolis, catering to near eastern groups, Greek and Asian markets, etc. Today, the strip has become more genteel, so to speak. There are no longer hucksters in the streets, and lots of the big warehouses are now art galleries, bars, dance clubs, or broken into groups of smaller shops, like the Pittsburgh Public Market.
The oldest stores, like PennMac (Mom's favorite), Wholey's Fish market, and a few others are still up and thriving, but smaller markets, like the biscotti company are doing well too. They have even started sidewalk cafes in the strip for the summer trade. It retains some of its old flavor, though, which makes it still a great place to walk and shop.
Have a wonderful day, don't forget to give out kissies for those scritches. Hugs, Peppino

This morning was a bright sunny morning after nearly a week of darkness and all that rain and some snow!It was freezing though and never went any higher than 41 degrees.The lows for tonight will be 29.Mom got us all up early and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix,collected the trash and loaded it in her car,then she warmed the car up while she got Dixie's carrier ready and put him in it and they took off for Nana's where both Nana and Mom went to the dump,then to the bank,then to True Value for Mom to get a drill bit for dad,then to Comcast to pay their bills,then to Christmas Tree Shop,Petco and then they walked over to see the Dollar Tree that the arsonist burned and it was awful,the floor was all burned off and everything was empty on the shelves and the door they busted to get in the place was all boarded up.Then Mom and Nana went to WalMart and Mom bought two 40 lb bags of wild bird seed,and a few other things and they met skin bro there,Mom was happy to see him as he lifted the heavy bags of bird seed for her and put them into the cart and then into the car.Then skin bro had to go to the Auto parts store and Mom and Nana went to Shaws and bought some things that were on sale and then after that they came back to Nana's to have another late lunch around 3:30pm.Skin bro met us at Nana's and they all had lunch together,then as it was starting to get really dark fast,Mom packed up Dixie and headed for home.It was really dark by the time she got out of Nana's street and those of us who had to stay home were in the dark as our dad was working the Christmas Stroll in Osterville tonight so we had no snacks,no pellet refills in our dishes and no light on.We all really yelled at Mom for not coming home sooner.But as soon as Mom got the car unpacked she came into our room and cleaned our cages for the night,closed our curtains and gave us our snacks.Dad called Mom to make sure that she was home as he knows she hates to drive in the dark and now for a while Mom is helping us to catch up with our visits before our dad gets home!Other than that its been an uneventful day!
Oh your poor sweet Mom!That happened to my Mom several times and you aren't lying about how frustrating and very stressful it is to have to deal with the insurance companies and the car repair shops and in most cases the wait to get in to get your car repaired is like three weeks or more,and then all the paperwork from the insurance companies,what a pain and accident reports!There seems to be more and more people on the phone while they are driving these days and especially in the parking lot,they don't even look,Mom had one today just shot right out of the parking area onto the main road and nearly smashed her front end,Mom had to slam on the brakes,in order to avoid hitting her!Its just too sad!We all sure hope that your poor Mom can get this taken care of quickly,Mom knows just how stressful all that is!

It was a dark as night,dismal,dreary pouring rainy day here all day long with the winds really whipping all the tall trees over!It was fairly warm here 54 degrees but it made all of us feel like sleeping all day and Mom finally had to cave and put the light on in our room around two this afternoon as it got so dark we couldn't see!We were all unusually quiet because of the day long darkness even though Mom had our radio going from the time she got us all up this morning.Then around three oclock this afternoon the skies got all yellow and it was really strange to see that kind of light coming in through our windows.I sure know what you mean about having to fight to get those head scritches,I have to do the same whenever all my frothers and fister are all so demanding of Mom all at the same time as me!Don'tcha just love getting your cheeks rubbed the most?OHHHH!I turn my head to the side so Mom can get every inch of it and I close my eyes and just enjoy the rubs!You really sound so sweet when you get to snuggle on your sweet Momma's hand and let her know just what it is that you'd like her to do!
Oh and now I have to wait because my frother got BOTD today so Mom is typing her fingers off to help him with his thank you's so me and Kallie are last in line to get to our visits!Now is that fair or Not!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Jazz
Today we will visit the zoo, a small part of Highland Park, but a well known zoo in the US. There is also the PPG aquarium there, but we will look at it later. The zoo is one of the 6 largest in the country and has changed a lot over the years. Mom used to hate to go there when she was small because all the animals were in cages. Now they all have large open areas to live in, and they look much happier. There is an Asian forest section, with neat tigers and other animals, including a komodo dragon; a primate house with large enclosures for gibbons, lemurs, great apes, and many kinds of monkeys; an African savannah with elephants, zebras, giraffes, etc. There are lots of birds there too, waterfowl, flamingos, owls, etc. There is a children's zoo, an education building, a bat house, a reptile house, a large pool with seals. It's a great place to walk around and spend a day. The zoo even invites senior citizens every Wednesday morning before opening to walk around there instead of walking the mall! I bet you'd love to see the zoo!
Hope you are having a good day. Thanks again for supporting me this month, and here's a vote for you too. Hugs, Peppino

No new pics today because we're revisiting the parks momentarily. I did post the Pirate parrot and the Penguin penguin, though. As I said yesterday Pittsburgh has some rabid sports fans, and there is sports memorabilia for sale in a lot of places in the city. But Pittsburghers also love to participate in sporting events. There are baseball and softball areas in all the parks, as well as tennis courts, some soccer fields, basketball courts, even places to play tetherball. Frick even has a bowling green and leagues that play there all summer long. As well as the ball parklets in the parks, there is an ice skating rink at Schenley Park, and swimming pools at both Schenley and Highland Parks.If a person isn't so sports minded, there are family picnic pavilios, many of the parks offer community gardens, Frick has a nature center with programs, and of course there is the zoo and aquarium at Highland Park. We'll talk more of that tomorrow.
I hope you are having a good day, and maybe even thinking of visiting our city at some point. Mom loves to take folks around. Hugs, Peppino

It was a freezing cold day this morning with very little to no sunshine and the temperatures were 39 the highs being 40 and the lows of 26 which its 34 right now and the winds are blowing at 50mph!Mom cleaned our cages,made breakfast and got my dad's things ready for work and then made him an early lunch as he had to leave by 2:20pm to get to work.Skin sis came over in the meantime with her laundry and she and Mom went over the recipe book to figure out what they would be making today.Dad left and Mom and skin sis started baking and they made Red Velvet Cake,Cranberry Pudding,Pumpkin Pecan Cake,Caramel Chocolate Chunk Blondies,Peanut Butter Cookies and Candy Corn Cookies,Mom was busy with the clean up of all the baking dishes,mixing bowl and utensils,while Skin sis took care of the laundry.Mom then had to vacuum the kitchen as it was such a mess from all the baking and then she did the whole dining room and bird room,by the time Mom put all the laundry away after skin sis left with half of what they baked it was near 7:30pm.Mom hasn't stopped all day!Finally she is here to bring us to our visits and to take our dictation,while she waits for dad to come home.Again Mom never got to get the tree up,maybe tomorrow.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Jazz
Thanks for your vote, I appreciate each one.
Today we can visit the sports arenas of the city. Pittsburgh has 3 teams, the Pirates (whose mascot is a parrot), the Penguins (whose mascot is a penguin, of course), and the Steelers (whose mascot is creepy!). So, I'm showing 2 pics of the North Shore, where the Pirates play baseball in PNC Park and the Steelers play at Heinz Field. Pitt also plays football at Heinz Field. The hockey arena is my third pic, that's the new Consol Energy Center. Other events are held there as well, the circus, ice shows, the occasional basketball game, concerts, etc. Pittsburgh boasts some rabid sports fans, and there are lots of places in town where a person can buy Pirate, Penguin, or Steeler gear and other memorabilia.
I hope you are having a happy day and whatever team you root for in football wins today. Hugs, Peppino

Mom will be sure to check the Anna Lee the next time she goes into Home Goods,Marshalls or TJ Maxx!Mom has probably seen them and just never really taken a good look as she's always in a hurry to get what she wants or needs and get right back out again especially when every place is crowded!
It was a dark,dismal,dreary day here with pouring rain all day,one of those days where you just feel like tucking your head under your wing and sleeping the day away!
When Mom and dad got our windows opened this morning to look out onto the rain drenched and dark dismal day there was a hawk in our driveway and he had a bird in his claws,a mother and her two little girls were walking by our house and they saw the whole thing unfold,they were walking their rather large dog,the Mom went after the hawk to make him release the bird which he dropped when he flew to one of the tall scrub pines,the bird landed on the side of the road and the Mom went over to poke it with a stick to see if it was alive and it was,it started to flutter away further down the street in front of our house,the hawk was still in the tree and the Mom stayed with the bird and then got a glove on her hand to pick up the bird,Mom thought she was going to bring it home with her but she placed it in the bush at the empty house across the street.It was just awful,Mom wanted to go out there and see if she could help the bird,but dad went out there and couldn't find it,about an hour or so later the Mom and one of the little girls came back with an umbrella to check on the bird also and I don't think they found it either,I don't know if the bird recovered or the hawk came back to get it!It was just awful!Mom wishes they would get the rats and mice not other birds,our yard has been pretty quiet lately and Mom saw feathers a few days ago by our mail box when she went out to get the mail!The bird looked like it might've been a morning dove!How does one get a hawk to leave the birds alone?Mom doesn't want to see that ever again!
Mom never got our tree up today as she was busy doing other things in the house and it was so dark and dreary here with the pouring rain that she couldn't wash the windows very good!Tomorrow is supposed to be a nice sunny day but cold with 50mph winds which will make it feel colder than it is!

  Hi Jazz
Thanks so much for your support and votes.
Today we are going downtown to see another green space in the city. It's Point State Park, and it's located at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers, right at the mouth of the Ohio River. It's a small park, but it contains Fort Pitt, after which Pittsburgh is named. There is a neat fountain right at the point which can shoot high into the air, or be a nice calm little fountain, depending on the weather and time of day. In my 5th pic, the fountain looks pink, doesn't it? That's because it is! They make it pink for October, breast cancer awareness month. The first pic is the giant rubber ducky who visited here last summer. Since we are all birds, I thought you'd enjoy seeing it, even though it isn't part of the park. It stayed on the river until late in the summer, then left for parts unknown, or at least unknown to mom, heehee. At Point State Park, they do summer concerts and lots of other fun activities throughout the year. It's also the headquarters for the Pittsburgh Arts Festival in June, and the 3 Rivers Regatta around the 4th of July.
I hope you are enjoying the green parts of our city as much as we do. Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Jazz
Thank you for liking my Christmas pic!Mom wasn't going to make us any new pics because we had lost all our Profile pics and gallery pics when BC was down but once she got our pics back well then she decided to get them done for us!
It was a cold morning at 34 but the sunshine was very bright.Mom collected all the trash and first cleaned us all up and gave us all our warm bean mix,then she loaded the car and took off without any of us.When she got to Nana's house,she loaded all her trash and Nana's in her car and then she first did our cousin Trixie II nails as they were really pinching Nana.Trixie II didn't like that at all and kept biting Mom.Then Nana and Mom took off for the dump and from there they went to Stop&Shop and got some things,then they came back to Nana's house and picked up Mom's car and Mom went and pumped some gas into her car,then they went to Marshall's to look for some Christmas gifts and Mom found some socks for the boys,her nephews and her BIL and she bought her sister a gift card for Home Goods,her sister's favorite store,but she can use the gift card in Marshall's and TJMaxx as well. Then they went to CVS to look for some glucosamine for Nana but the prices were so expensive so Nana said she'd wait til she got a coupon,then they went back to Nana's house and had a late lunch of salad and tuna and Mom stayed with Nana and relaxed a little til it started getting dark and then she came home just as it was getting dark.Dad was there to help her unpack her car and bring the stuff in the house for her while Mom went outside and fed the CawCaws some bread that Nana sent home for them,then Mom came in to see us and cleaned our cages and dad had already given us our snacks,Kallie and Candida got peanuts and Mario and Dixie got animal crackers.Mom put everything away that dad brought in for her and then she made dad some dinner and now she is just starting to get our visits in for us!She and Dad came home to a big surprise!Our lawn was raked nearly clean of all the piles of leaves that were down there and Dad texted skin bro and it was he who raked our yard and hauled the leaves away,Mom had no idea that he was here doing it for her! Dad was so happy and pleased,both he and Mom just can't figure out our skin sibs at all!
Mom should be home now for the rest of the weekend and we couldn't be happier,now maybe Mom and Dad will get the tree up tomorrow and all the lights in the windows!Mom saw several cars on her way home tonight that had trees on the tops of their cars!
Mom has never seen the Anna Lee's yet!Mom is hoping to get the tree up tomorrow when dad is here to help her with the lights and the tree,its just a small fiber optic tree and Mom decorates it with white doves and red Cardinals!Maybe she'll be in the mood tomorrow!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Jazz
Thanks to Sam and Aunt Robin for the pic of me with the tree. I am finding time to decorate, after all.
Thanks for your support today and every day. I posted some of the Nationality room pics in my gallery, as well as some of Schenley Park.
Today, we are still in Oakland, home to the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, and Carlow Universities, as well as the museum where mom works, and lots of other good things.
I want to talk about the green spaces in Pittsburgh today. The city has several large parks, Frick in the East End, Mellon Park also in the east, Schenley Park in Oakland and others. Pittsburgh can be proud of its green spaces, where lots of people make use of the paths, the playgrounds, the tennis courts, the swimming pools, and the dog 'parks' within the parks. The pics in my gallery show Schenley which is near both Carnegie Mellon and Pitt. The sky view in one of them shows the Cathedral of Learning as well as the rest of the Oakland skyline. The city has a lot of things to be proud of, and we think the parks are right up there at the top of the list. See you tomorrow, hope you are having a good day today. Hugs, Peppino

Yes, we both arrived at around the same time, and we both found good homes.
Thanks so much for your support.
Today I want to go back to the higher education facilities in Pittsburgh, but just to the University of Pittsburgh.
The Cathedral of Learning, Pitt's main building on campus, is a special place. It's a skyscraper of a building, but the first 2 floors are what you want to see. If you are interested in Pittsburgh's ethnic heritage, they have Nationality rooms. We can go into who settled here in a later blog, but on these floors of the cathedral, each ethnic group has decorated a classroom with things that are particular to its culture. Mom took Italian classes in the Italian room, and it's gorgeous, with dark wood paneling, lots of cultural references to the artists, composers, poets, etc. that Italy has produced. Other rooms include those from Eastern Europe, the Philippine Islands, Vietnam, China, Japan, Western Europe, and the Caribbean. They have added Latin American rooms lately as well. It's truly spectacular this time of year, with all the Nationality Rooms decorated for Christmas. If you come to Pittsburgh for Christmas, this is a must see!
I hope you are having a great day. Hugs, Peppino

We awoke to a cold grey day the temperatures were 54 and it started to rain later on in the afternoon.Mom got us up early and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and then skin sis came and took Mom off to zumba where they had a good workout and then at the end of the class they all had a group picture taken with their teacher Toni.Then skin sis and Mom went to pick up Nana and they went to the bank where Mom and Nana did their thing there and then from there they went to JC Penney over the Bridge and paid a bill there and then they went to TJMaxx where Mom bought a present for her nieces another pair of socks for each of them,then they went to Longhorn and had a bowl of soup and a salad and skin sis ordered the chocolate stampede cake,Mom just loves the mousse on that,then from there they went back over the Bridge to Market Basket and Mom was only going to get a few things and wound up with a lot of things she found marked down that she could use,cereal for dad,macaroni,juice boxes for dad's lunch box,and several other things,they bought chunky soup on sale 5 cans for $5.00,butter for 2 for $4.00 and Mom got two more gallons of milk for $2.59 each,some Marie Callandar frozen dinners for 5 for $10.00,a chicken pot pie and two 24 packs of bottled water for 2 for $5.00 and there was 4% off every item that she bought on top of the regular savings.It was so cold in Market Basket that Mom could barely concentrate on shopping!That store is so dangerous to even step inside.
It was pouring rain again as soon as Mom,skin sis and Nana came out of the Market Basket and it was really dark so skin sis drove Mom home first and unloaded all of Mom's things and she took Nana home and dad helped Mom put the groceries away that she bought and since it was late she gave dad one of the tv dinners for his dinner and she cleaned us all up and dad had fed us our pellets and gave us our snack before Mom came home.Dad was worried about Dixie as he was in the corner of his cage on the bottom,and he called Mom while she was still in the store,Mom told him that Dixie was just upset because he didn't get to go with her today.Kallie was really bad this morning and bit Mom in the hand which was really painful,skin sis came into our room and we don't like the color black or red and she was wearing a black sweat shirt and Kallie went to attack her,Mom came running to intercept and Kallie just bit into the palm of Mom's hand.Mom now has a painful bruise there!
Mom and all of us want to thank Chyna and Raffi for telling us how to get our pics back!Thank you !Thank you sooo soooo much!We didn't have those x's but Mom clicked the delete button on the pics that weren't there and we got our profiles and gallery pics back again!
I am so happy to have an idea now of all the things that Santa Bird will be bringing to me!I can't wait for Mom to put our stocking up on the mantel!And our tree up too!It was a big letdown to not be able to check out what was left in the bo

Thanks for your vote. Okay, I'm Peppino, the newest member of the flock. I've been with mom and the flock since September 2013, when I was just a baby. I picked mom out at a bird show, and wouldn't leave her alone, so she figured she might as well take me home, heehee. I think she really likes me, though. I'm very talkative, and have picked up several words and phrases in the past year, which I would be happy to share with you while mom is on the phone or trying to watch TV.
We don't have a theme as such this month, but I'll bring you some fun facts about Pittsburgh, share some pics with you (as soon as BC has things working again), and hopefully get your vote all month long. I return votes, as well. Hope you are having a good day and it looks like I'm off to a good start. Hugs, Peppino

CALGARY WAS FREEZING COLD BUT BANFF'S TEMPS WERE PERFECT. MOM DID DOGSLEDDING, SHE DROVE THE DOG SLED AND SHE SAID ITS NOT AS EASY AS SOME PEOPLE THINK. IT WAS FUN THOUGH.

It was such a beautiful day here today with bright sunshine and temperatures of 59 degrees and when Mom stepped outside to say goodbye to skin bro it felt like a warm spring day and smelled like it too!Skin bro came over after work this morning and spent the late morning right through three oclock with Mom to visit with my frother Mario and my baby fister Candida.While Mom was busy with chasing after Kallie I wound my way upstairs and found that secret bag that Mom bought the other day and I had pulled most of the things out of it and I got to see some toys and a new blanket that must be for my frother Dixie as his favorite blankie is all worn out!There were lots of foraging toys and bells,I just love bells,and just as I was getting into the last of the bag,Mom came up and scooped me up and was very upset that I chewed the bag and found all the things in it!Jeez!I'm just a curios tiel who loves to play with things I know that Mom has brought home to me!
