  Hi Bilou & Strawberry from Jennifer-Vote #1039
Thanks Kiddo, SP, Taz, & Lizzie, what a fabulous Beach Party Milonga you put on last night, and Sammy and the Scruffies did a great job also, with good music! Sorry we had to be pulled away so soon, the neighbor man wanted to talk, and dad's sister called about a family matter, both were very chatty! Limon had a really good time and got to meet his hero Taz, they like each other as good buddies already! This should be a peaceful Sunday for us, dad has to finish assembling Limon's new cage, it should work really good for him! We are going to try to get Limon's BC page put up as soon as time allows, he is truly a remarkable TooMan! Have a great day, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow dear Sunday friends...

Love forever, from Jenny & the Dallas family

  Hi Bilou & Strawberry, from Jenny Lynn
It will be very hot today with temps in the mid-nineties, and heat indexes well over 100! The high humidity is a killer for dad's old COPD lungs, we are going to keep him inside today! I was mocking dad's morning cough, he was worried about me until he realized what I was doing! Have a happy ToosDay, and give my love to all in your pretty home, see ya all tomorrow...

Happy hump day to all who celebrate such days! Dad's visiting nurse comes this morning, but the check up should be mostly routine!

Our daily chores are done, so we are going to get on with our day, please give my love to all in your family, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny Lynn, & my family

  Mr Bilou & Rr Strawberry, from Jenny Lynn & Limon
Well the much anticipated Mr Limon made his debut in our home last night at 7:11 on 7/11! I want to point out, that due to extreme separation anxiety, dad has agreed to joint custody until things ease off! Limon will be a work in progress for us, but all the good stuff is already in place, right now he is a very frightened 14 year old TooMan that needs attention and love! He loves bananas, broccoli, and birdie bread, & he has calmed down a lot over night, and is not hissing as much this morning! Our bird club groomer came with Limon's daddy last night, and all of us got our beaks and nails trimmed, but not our wings, very sneaky, but she is so nice! We already have a dozen stories to tell, but that will come later! Have a great day and give my love to all in your sweet home...

Love on this Saturday, from Jenny, Limon, & our Dallas family

  Hi Bilou... TiPaul here
I am King Pepper's frother and I was his campaign manager... and my goal is to get into the 10K club. If you have the time, it would be greyt if you could vote for me sometimes - I am being very careful not to get too many votes in a month, so as not to get more than the bird who is running for BOTM. I know I can ask a few more than I am getting now, and I know you are friends with some of my frothers and fisters. Thanks so much. See you.

What a fabulous wedding ceremony for Dixie and Mrs Angel Adler, it was presented so well, and I was proud to be in the wedding party as a Bride's Maid! My best wishes to Dixie & Lil' Angel, for a long and happy life together! Spot did a fantastic job officiating, and it was great to see most of my very dearest friends there also! We had a great Holiday, the food was great, and it was peaceful, the firecrackers went on all night long, but we didn't mind at all! Have a nice day, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Bilou
King Pepper here, with a special message to all my loyal bird subjects. After being picked up and brought to the castle in a way I still do not fully recollect, I woke up realizing I am Bird of the Month, a King, and I surely could not have done this alone. I could only vote for myself once a day, but TiPaul usually beat me to that too. And so this message – I want to thank each and every one of you… Angel & Pepper, Baby, Bilou, Cheyenne, Chico, Chipper, Chloe, Chuey, Chyna, Cookie, Cori & Boo Boo, Dino, Dixie, Falco, Finnegan, Grendel, Gus, Hulk, Indiana Sam, Ipo, Jolie, Jetta, Kaji, Kahlua, Kiddo, Lalo & Ziggy, Little Angel & Sky, Mango (Sunshine’s flock), Mango(Green’s flock), Mango (Lola’s flock), Mayo, Mikey, Miranda & CuBird, Molly, Ms BB, Norman, Oz, Panther, Pearl & Silver, Picabo, Pico & Poco, Pimer, Poirot, Polly & Zippy, Pookie, Popeye, Raffi, RoofTop, Sam, SamIAm, Snowy, Spot, Squak, Sugar, SweetPepper & Kacey, Tooth and Sebastian & finches for coming by and voting for me, whether it was every day… with a blog, without a blog… once in a while. They all added up and I made it to the castle, actually to the BC castle and to Ms. BB’s castle and it is only the second evening and I have been having the time of my life. I thought I had fun training Mom. Heh heh heh – this is going to be more fun than I ever imagined in my entire life. I have had friends stop by to visit and congratulate me and I cannot begin to thank you all enough for that too. I just don’t know where to begin. With the Canada Day party celebration yesterday, I was pretty tired, and I asked my frother to introduce me to his special friend Lizzie, who I know to be the bestest cook ever. Now food is something this bird has a taste for. That table that is at the castle is something I would like to have at home, for days when each of our flock wants something different to eat and Mom finds that so totally wrong. It is the best thing I have come across so far, and I have only just begun my journey. I will do my best to post my diary on my page every couple of days, for those of you who want to know what I have been up to.

  Hi Bilou
Well, since it is July 1st tomorrow, I thought we would start off the month with a BIG Canada Day Celebration to bring in the fact that hopefully (Mom is smiling) I will be dragged off growling, by some castle guards at midnight according to some of you here, and I will wake up in a strange place in the morning. Wake up – are they going to drug me so I will fall back asleep? Nobirdy seems to really know what happens. Or nobirdy is telling. I was told the entire flock is to come with me. They’d better!
I want to thank EVERY BIRDY who has voted for me this month, even if you did not come by every day. I want to thank TiPaul, my campaign manager, who helped me with research, and blogging, and making sure I did not forget one single birdie who left me a blog, or any birdie who is on the list of those who want to get in the 10K club. I also want to thank him for handing me his crown, the one he wore when he was BOTM so long ago. It means a lot to me to wear it.
Okay… here is the list of activities that I have asked the City of montreal to bring to the Castle for us, so we can partake in the Canada Day festivities.

  Hi Bilou
The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) is a museum of architecture and research centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is located at 1920 Baile Street, between Fort Street and Saint-Marc Street in what was once part of the Golden Square Mile. Today it is considered to be located in the Shaughnessy Village neighbourhood of the borough of Ville-Marie. Phyllis Lambert is the founding director and chair of the board of trustees, and Mirko Zardini is the director and chief curator. It was designed and built by Peter Rose. The CCA contains a vast library and archives, and is host to various exhibits throughout the year. It is also home to a study centre open to the general public. The CCA also provides educational programs and cultural activities. The CCA also has an architectural garden located on the southern side of René-Lévesque Boulevard. The sculpture garden was realized by architect Melvin Charney. The CCA was founded in 1979 by Montreal architect Phyllis Lambert. The purpose of the centre was to promote public awareness of the role architecture plays in society, as well as to encourage scholarly architectural research and to foster innovative design practices. The CCA was designed and constructed between 1985 and 1989 by Montreal architect Peter Rose. The design of the museum incorporates the Shaughnessy House mansion, built for Thomas Shaughnessy, a Second Empire-style mansion that Lambert purchased in 1974 to prevent its demolition. The CCA received the Honor Award for Architecture from the American Institute of Architects and the Governor General's Medals in Architecture in 1992. The current building, which opened in 1989, surrounds Shaughnessy House and was designed by Peter Rose, in collaboration with Phyllis Lambert and Erol Argun. Shaughnessy House, located at 1923 Dorchester St. W (today René-Lévesque Boulevard) was at built in 1874 according to plans by William Tutin Thomas. It is one of the few nineteenth century residences that is accessible to the public. The CCA building, with a surface area of roughly 12,000 square metres (130,000 sq ft), is home to exhibit halls, Paul Desmarais Theatre, a bookstore, the library and a study centre in the Alcan Wing. It also contains restoration laboratories and conservation offices. The work of conservation and restoration of the Shaughnessy House, with a floor area of over 1,900 square metres (20,000 sq ft), were carried out under the direction of Denis Saint-Louis.

Also inside is the Devencore Conservatory and reception rooms. Due to its size, location and use of traditional and modern materials, combining structural aluminum with grey Montreal limestone, the CCA building's architecture blends past and present. Its landscapes, including the CCA sculpture Garden facing the building on the south side of René Lévesque Boulevard, were designed according to the ecology of each location. Most of the rooms of the Shaughnessy House have been restored to their original 1874 state. The mansion was a listed as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1973 and a Historical Monument of Quebec on February 6, 1974. The CCA has vast collections of books and artifacts touching on all aspects of the built environment and certain aspects of industrial design. Within the general collections it has special collections such as those pertaining to architectural games for children, universal exhibitions and their architecture, and significant architects including Ernest Cormier, Peter Eisenman, Arthur Erickson, John Hejduk, Cedric Price, Aldo Rossi, James Stirling, and the artist Gordon Matta-Clark. The centre mounts regular shows made up of research on thematic subjects, different aspects of its collections, and hosts touring exhibits from other museums. The centre offers tours adapted to specific groups and educational programs for children. It also has an extensive bookstore, a concert hall, and well planned gardens. The sculpture garden which lies across René Lévesque Boulevard offers a full scale ghost-like lower shell of the bottom part of the Shaughnessy mansion, and assorted modernistic sculptures or constructs which are developed around the theme of architecture. The Centre's considerable research library is open to the public, but only by appointment. It celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2009. The mansion faces a sculpture garden by Melvin Charney on the south side of René Lévesque Boulevard. It is a set of sculptures that deconstruct architecture. It provides reproduction of the base of the facade and size of Shaughnessy House. The vegetation is mixed with sections of open walls. Architectural fixtures and furniture items are placed on pedestals. Located in between René-Lévesque Bouelvard and the Ville-Marie Expressway, it is a park in an area of heavy traffic and is at the edge of a cliff.

  Hi Bilou
Montreal City Hall (French: Hôtel de Ville de Montréal) is the work of architects Henri-Maurice Perrault and Alexander Cowper Hutchison, and was built between 1872 and 1878 in the Second Empire style. It is located in Old Montreal, between Place Jacques-Cartier and the Champ de Mars, at 275 Notre-Dame Street East. The closest metro station is Champ-de-Mars. As one of the best examples of the Second Empire style in Canada, and the first city hall to have been constructed in the country solely for municipal administration, it was designated a National Historic Site in Canada in 1984. Construction on the building began in 1872 and was completed in 1878. The building was gutted by fire in March 1922, leaving only the outer wall and destroying many of the city's historic records. The architect Louis Parant was commissioned for the reconstruction, who decided to build an entirely new building with a self-supporting steel structure built inside the shell of the ruins. This new building was modelled after the city hall of the French city of Tours. Other changes included a remodelling of the Mansard roof into a new Beaux-Arts inspired model, with a copper roof instead of the original slate tiles. In 1967, from this building's balcony Charles de Gaulle, the president of France, gave his Vive le Québec libre speech.
Thank YOU for all your support and votes!!!!!
I am getting excited… TiPaul is getting antsy. Thanks fro for giving me all your time, and giving up on your own thing for the 10K club. Please every birdy, get in some votes for my frother – he promises to reply to all blogs once I am in the castle. He said he will finally have time. Seriously – he has been so busy, he has not had time to chew his feathers and has grown tail feathers. Mom has taken me crown shopping, and I hope the one I picked comes in on time.

  Hi sweet Mr Bilou & Strawberry, from Jenny Lynn
Well gang, it looks like we are in for another, day of lower 80's, a splash or two of rain, and overcast! The lawn man mowed last night and picked up a big pile of limbs and branches , and lawn debris, and hauled them away in his truck, every thing looks good today! Just a little garage work, fertilize the tomatoes, then flock time with all of us, that Grey parrot is becoming a dad hog, she sure loves attention, probably because she had so very little at her first home! Have a great weekend dear friends, and give my love to all in your happy home...

...good luck at the Vets torture chamber of birdie horrors, LOL! We are off to a late start today and most likely will have to cut back on our blog notes! We are grateful for all the info on Ozzi, but not to pleased, that is all we can say for now, we have been warned to keep our American opinions to ourself, go figure! The best we can hope for is a more strict law regarding animal abuse and punishment to the perpetrators! TGIF, have a good one dear friends, give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny Lynn & my Dallas family
