  Hi, Gus
Sounds like that thin paper will never be used in that printer ever again. Well, maybe only one could be done then would be too hot. Guess had to pull stuck pieces of paper out.

Sometimes it seems tedious to check every couple of rows for accuracy. However, when have to rip out 10 or more rows due to an error then it is worth it. Know our mom has often discovered a mistake rows later and always annoyed to have to undo but know never happy if it is too obvious and doesn't look right.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Gus
Well, I did it yesterday...after our discussion of not going over on other birdie's condos and getting a toe bitten there I went and did it! Mom was trying to put Miranda into her cage and I flew over there trying to save her from incarceration! Mom tried to catch me and I flew over to CuBird's cage. Now, Cu is a smaller TAG, much smaller than Miranda who is a CAG, but do not underestimate my little grey fister. That Cu went right for my toes! Mom had to pull her out of her cage, holding her to her chest while Cu made these noises like a possessed duck! Yes! A devil duck! Mom also tried to catch me but that is impossible.I wound up strolling along the floor and climbing back up on my cage. Baldrick was there to welcome me home the good frother that he is. SO that was mom's adrenaline charge for the day. Have to do that occasionally because she keeps referring to me as her "old wild caught man". Don't want her to think for a minute that this little conure is an old fuddy duddy! So the grands get a handful of birthday wealth! Very cute idea! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Love and winghugs, charlie

  Hi Gus
It's a good thing mom noticed her mistake after only 10 rows. That's better than having to tear the whole thing out!
Today is another short blog, mom is working at the museum from 1 to 4, and really really has to do laundry. The bed linens, towels, and after yesterday's baking, the potholders and tea towels, as well as her clothes, well, it's just a mountain of laundry that needs done! She is planning to do that when she gets back from doing the Polar World touchables cart. At least she will be on the balcony today, and not in Polar World, where somehow the heat never seems to reach. So she'll be warm.
Mom was picking out an outfit for today, and got out a burgundy pants suit that she had made. When she put on the pants, she laughed and laughed! It is so old, the pants are wide bottomed! She ended up wearing the top, which she had edge stitched in gold, and it has gold star buttons on. But she chose khaki pants to go with it. Now the old pants are on the sewing machine. She's hoping to alter them sometime soon.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritchies and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Gus
I thank you so much for your continuing support.
Pittsburgh is a very beautiful place to see for the holidays. We've seen some nice places to visit in the city and today we will see one more. The fourth pic is the US Steel building, and the first three pics are what's displayed in Steel Plaza, right in front of it for the holidays. The Nativity scene is a copy of the one in Vatican City. If you've ever watched the Midnight Mass from the Vatican, every year they show pics from outside on St. Peter's Square, and this is the Nativity scene they show! Pittsburgh has the only replica of this particular Nativity in the US! The statues are life sized, and it's beautifully painted and arranged each year.
I hope you are having a great day, see you tomorrow for another installment of Pittsburgh stuff. Hugs, Peppino

It's Sawyer.
The play that mom and dad saw yesterday was real funny. It was called "What the Butler Saw". Dad said he doesn't understand because it had nothing to do with a butler. The whole show was done in typical dry British humor fashion. After the play mom and dad went to Thai Table restaurant for some Thai food, which was great. Nope, no leftovers. When they got home the lights were already out so dad said good night to us and tucked us in for the night. Dad may mow the lawn today. Or mom and dad may work at the police dept. It's still up in the air.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 69 and a low of 53.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Morning Gus !
Yesterday mom and dad got home from the g'parronts early - so I had time for playing before night-night. Today after a little marketing, mom is finally going to start her holiday baking ! Snickerdoodles, chocolate kringles and hopefully bacon rolls - those are a surprise for her sister - their mom made them every year and boy are they yummy ! Tomorrow and/or Tuesday she'll make some gingerbread.

Hope you have an equally exciting day full of love ! Cookie

At least you saw a little sun.
Well, that's a lot of work but better to tear out 10 rows than wait until it's done. I wouldn't want to have to do almost the whole thing later. Did you help your mom?
The weather people were wrong, we didn't see any sun today! Maybe it was at your house? Oh well, just a relaxing day for us. Put my feets up on the perch and enjoy some peppermint hot chocolate.

I am hoping you can help me towards my quest to 10K I have 500 votes to go. :)
Mom and Dad went to their Christmas dinner and came back with a Christmas music CSD, made by the guy at the restaurant. He is a fantastic singer and has made a few CD's in the past, of which Mom has already. he sings in English, French and Italian. She and her girlfriend were both given a CD tonight, and Mom was so happy. It is playing now in the background while we are writing to all my friends. Mom will go back tomorrow to get our turkey bones. They will be making the soup tomorrow and we get all the leftover bones. It looks like we will have our own party. mom says the meal was delicious - she is so full, that even with dancing, she said she cannot go to sleep yet - she is stuffed! I told her that is good... I have more friends to write to. See you tomorrow.

Oh....baby afghans take forever to make. My mom is the same way. If she makes a mistake knitting....if it's not noticeable she tries to keep going. But then she always decides to rip out the rows to fix it. It's so frustrating to to do that!

Can you believe that we woke up this morning to snow? It was even covering our deck but it soon went away and is kind of drizzly out there and cold at 36 degrees.Mom was too tired last night to make our bean mix up so we had to wait for her to cook another batch up for us this morning and instead of bean mix(she ran out of it)she made us pastene pasta with eggs in it and oh was that sooo good! I chowed my bowl down in a heart beat and Mario,who hasn't had any interest in food for a week now or more came right down even before Mom could put the bowl down for him and he chowed right down!Mom got up at 4:50am this morning to give skin bro a wake up call and then went right back to bed and never got up til near nine and we were all waiting on her!But it was worth the wait as she gave us such a nice warm breakfast!Mom is going to spend the day catching up with the house chores and cleaning our cages good as she was out all day yesterday and then she's going to start wrapping presents for her sisters family and get that all done so she can just relax and get ready to start baking some things to bring to Nana's for Christmas.So far the forecasts here are for heavy rains and lots of it as much as 2 inches in some places or a little more.We don't mind the rain as long as its not freezing rain to take our daddy away from us on Christmas day.
We too have been having problems with BC mainly being so slow to load the pages and then we keep getting the error page and the page not found,its so frustrating when you type out a long blog and its gone and you're stuck trying to remember what you said!Oh that's awful that your poor Momma had to tear out ten rows of her baby afghan,but she's right,Mom used to crochet only square things that were easy to do and by the time she finished one blanket it was all lopsided and shrinking on each row!

  Hi Gus
mom was reading something very interesting today. a group of scientists from the netherlands have developed a mushroom that eats only plastic. they developed this to try and take care of the huge amounts of discarded plastics floating around in giant floating piles in our oceans today. most of the discarded plastics are from the united states.. the scientists say it will be many years of testing before they can determine if the plastic eating mushroom would be edible by humans. since many plastics are now used in shampoos and makeup mom had a disturbing thought. as a young girl in the 50s she saw a movie called attack of the mushroom people. it was about a group of travelers who had been stranded on this island with no food. they found these delicious mushrooms that staved off their hunger but the more they ate the faster they actually turned into mushrooms themselves. mom was terrified to eat any mushrooms for fear she would turn into one. now she has to worry if the mushrooms will attack her face because of the plastic in the makeup or attach themselves to moms hair because of the plastic in the shampoo. what if the plastic eating mushrooms form a gang and liberate the poor mushrooms grown on mushroom farms because they aren't being treated humanely. at least mom feels some sense of hope that some are trying to get rid of the huge piles of plastic trash and maybe being a mushroom might not be such a bad deal.

Sorry for the short blog today. Mom, her daughter, her sister, and her niece baked all the Italian goodies today, and did the peanut butter blossom cookies, too. Mom is totally wiped out, and it's nearly dinner time. She had hoped to do some laundry, but that's not gonna happen. Maybe tomorrow... Anyway I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritches. Hugs, Falco

Hi, and thanks for your daily visits and votes!
Today we are still downtown, very near the holiday square that we visited yesterday. The buildings and surrounding areas make up PPG Place. The skyscrapers are glass, and pretty impressive, but they have an ice skating rink set up outside right now in the plaza, you can see it with the tree up in my 5th pic. The 6th pic is without the tree, taken later in the winter. The 3rd and 4th pics show the buildings, and the first two pics show an interior space in the main building called the Wintergarden. It's a big, airy open space. Right now there are gingerbread houses in with the plants, but mom's pics are older. They decorate for Christmas every year, too.
I hope you are having a great day, and hope to see you tomorrow! Hugs, Peppino

Well, I am in with my mom dictating my blogs, but I suspect I will be banished back to my room shortly. No! I have not bitten her again, but I am climbing all over the desk and chewing on medical paperwork, which is a no no. She doesn't mind when I tunnel under it, but I can't seem to control my beak!

We did not have Chicken Bowl for dinner last night. Dad's company had their Christmas luncheon yesterday, and he brought home a bunch of scalloped potatoes that were left over and very good. Mom loves those, and it is one of the few things she has never successfully made. So she and Dad scarfed taters for dinner (I got some too!), and then they went to Chicken Bowl for lunch after grocery shopping this morning. I do love me some Chicken Bowl for lunch. Mmmmmm!

Still not warm enough for a sunbath today, but the weather geeks are calling for 73 tomorrow, and upper 70s on Monday and Tuesday. I call that sunbathing weather, and I bet I get outside. Unfortunately I will probably also get a nail trim some time in the next few days. Darn it! There always seems to be a down side to the up side!

  Hi, Gus
Did skinsis have her car in the garage or in the driveway? Around here can't leave a car parked on the street more than three days or it'll get tagged. Supposed to help keep cars from being in one place too long (as it not working ones or abandoned ones).

The thinner paper got stuck in the printer? Sometimes the smaller and thicker papers get stuck in the printer at mom's work. It has a pic of what to do to fix the problem. Sometimes have to open the back door and pull the stuck paper and sometimes have to pull the ink thingy out and sometimes just have to unplug it and let it reset itself! Yikes! Three hours is a long time for your dad to retrieve that paper so it must've gotten crinkled or something that cause it to jam like that.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Yesterday dad put the nest boxes back on Blue and Jewel's and Skye and Rio's cages. Guess we're going to hear the pitter patter of little claws again soon. After that mom and dad went to WalMart. They picked up another McSandwitch maker and found some "Good and Plenty" candy. Dad hasn't had it in a million years. They also went to Costco and got some fresh fish for dinner. Mom took two big fillets and baked them. Then made a lemon Caper Butter sauce to spoon over them. Dad cooked some rice and steamed some squash. Guess they liked it cuz it's all gone now.
Today mom and dad have a play to see in Los Angeles so they'll be gone all afternoon.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 66 and the low will be 50.
Hope your day was fun.

ahhhh . . . I am so excited about mom's vacation that I woke up extra early today ! From under my cover I started calling "hii" :) Since mom and dad are heading to the g'parronts today, I'll nap and catch up on my sleep then - After my nap I'll watch the wild birds outside or look at all my cards from my friends that mom hung on the hallway door where I can see :)

Mom met a couple friends for dinner last night and had to re-tuck me in when she came home - with kisses of course !

What kind of printer does mom have ? My mom puts card stock through the printer all the time without a problem . . .

Have a wonderful day :) love Cookie

I saw on the weather map how so many were under the clouds ...NO sun. We were in that tiny area that did get some sun again today, finally!
Sorry about all that printer problems. Hope it works soon again for your mom.
It was clean Chyna's condo day. I don't like that! I worked hard to get it that way.
At least we saw the sun again today! Looks like 3 more days of partial sun and then 3 days of snow. It will even snow on Christmas.
Better get the peppermint hot chocolate ready.

Oh Mom hates when that happens!That happened to my Mom's printer yesterday when she was trying to print out some recipes and the printer got jammed!It took Mom a good two hours to try and get the paper unstuck!Your poor Mom having it stuck for three hours like that and having to get your dad to help her get it fixed!What a pain,these computers and printers seem to have a mind of their own!
It was a bright sunny morning here and the temperatures were 35 and it was freezing.Mom got us up early again and cleaned our cages,fed us and then dad helped Mom put the trash she collected in her car along with some other things and then she collected Dixie and got him in his carrier and wrapped him up In a warm blanket and put him in the car that dad had already warmed up for Mom,and off to Nana's they went.Dixie got to stay with our cousin Trixie II while Mom and Nana went to the dump,Post Office,then to Walmart,Michaels,and Shaws,then they went to Stop&Shop and got a few things there and then by the time they got back to Nana's house it was 4 O'clock and getting dark.Mom got all the groceries loaded in her car and then came back and got Dixie and they came home where Mom had to get Dad some dinner,clean out our cages,feed us our snack and put all the groceries away.While Mom was gone all day my dad put the purple lights in the dining room window and do they look just awesome!

Well, I am happy to report that I have been a good boy so far today, and no biting since yesterday's disaster. Now I am in my room for another reason altogether. I took a bath in my water bowl, and Mom wants me in the warmest room in the house till I dry off. I keep calling her, but I want her to come in here not for me to leave. Not working out too well so far.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and since she was verrry sweaty when she got home after training and zumba she needed a shower. However she came in to sit with me first, since I was calling her. She had to wear her summer bathrobe too, since her warm winter one is bright red and I would freak out immediately. I wonder why so many of us hate the color red? It must be something dangerous in the wild that is bred into our feathers. Anyway I got Mom time, then she got her shower and then I got more Mom time. Now I just need to dry off!

Yep, a little each day gets all the work done.
This morning mom went to the center as usual, and was assigned the squirrel porch and the squirrel pens. Needless to say, she had her new coat on, not thinking of working outside. So she hung up her coat and got one of the ghillie suit coats to wear while she worked. It was really cold outside, or she'd have gone out in just her sweatshirt. Haha, I bet the squirrels never saw her coming! She was disguised as a bunch of leaves, haha. There are 19 squirrels spending the winter outside this year.
After she got home her sister called her to go to the Italian store to buy food for Christmas eve. So, we are here after 3:30, just starting our blogs. At least Peppino went first, and his are done.
That's all the news for now too, so I hope you are having a wonderful day full of anticipation of Santa Bird coming to visit you, and being so very good. Hugs, Falco

Today we are in Market Square, in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Every Christmas season it turns into a Holiday Marketplace, with booths set up for buying locally made crafts and artworks, food booths and tables for the people brave enough to sit outside and eat, a house for Santa to stay in and see the children, and even a stage where locals can perform music, theater, and dance. It's a fun place to visit during the holidays, and it sure brightens up the downtown area for everyone. It has become a destination for some, along with decorated store windows, and the replica of the Vatican nativity scene on Steel Plaza.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi, Gus
Think that one of the toilets here got replaced and both have had parts changed out as needed. Good that any leaks are fixed as don't want to waste any water or get a high bill.

Guess not driving the car for awhile would leave the battery kinda weak. Good to get it charged up and glad skinsis hadn't been stranded somewhere.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Gus
It's Sawyer.
Mom and dad saw a very good movie yesterday. It's called "The Judge". Before the movie, dad bought gas for the car, at $2.35 per gallon and after the movie he picked dinner at The Green Burrito. Not a real exciting day.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 64 and a low of 48. Looks like today will be just as exciting.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi Gus
I'm glad things got fixed - we have lots of plumbing problems here because of the hard water - something is always needing to be fixed or replaced :(

It's here ! TGIF has a whole new meaning today ! Mom has just hours to go till vacation ! Now, I've got plans for this vacation and they include lots of treats and head rubs, maybe a splash and of course lots of games and songs :)

Mom did run out last night leaving me and dad for a few minutes - she was out of milk. She came back with not only milk though, she came back with a strawberry ! ! ! Told you I was being a good boy !

Have a wonderful and peaceful day ! love Cookie

  Hi Gus
What is going on? It seems that so many are having car problems lately. I think the cars wait until it's cold out to act up!!!!
I saw the sun for an hour today. It made all the snow on the trees and ground look like crystals, very pretty. I don't know why it won't stay. The snow will be back for sure on Tuesday. I hope the sun comes back too. It stays away much too long!
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna ~ Merry Christmas & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Gus
well we got a light dusting of snow last night. it has melted everywhere else but our yard.

When the forest suddenly gets quiet and birds take flight, it might be time to worry about a brewing storm.

scientists stumbled on the finding when they were studying golden-winged warblers—small birds that weigh less than a third of an ounce. the team was testing if the birds could carry tiny backpack transmitters.The warblers are the smallest species ever tracked, and when the researchers retrieved the transmitters from five birds, they discovered something strange: The birds had all moved away from their breeding grounds a day before the storm, flying nearly 1,000 miles—even though the tornado was still hundreds of miles away.

The researchers think that the birds were sensing infrasound—acoustic waves that occur at frequencies below 20 hertz. While humans can’t hear such a low level of sound, it’s known that birds and other animals can.

is it time to fire the meteorologists and start looking to the sky for storm predictions? Not quite yet.“Birds are really good at predicting storms, but they’re not a good replacement for satellites and radar, There is one situation that birds could beat humans: “If you were all alone in the forest and all the birds left, you should be worried about it.”

When storms force birds to flee, it can put pressure on their ability to breed. As storms become more powerful and frequent with climate change, those disruptions will grow.“They wouldn’t do this with a normal thunderstorm, but if it comes to big storms arriving every year and birds losing four to five days of breeding season, it would be a big problem for their conservation,”
Golden-winged warblers have suffered one of the steepest population drops of any songbird species in the past 45 years, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Conservationists are working on a plan to stop the decline and grow the population 50 percent by 2050.
