Hi Benny, It looks like we are neighbors! I also live in Bolingbrook, near Builta elementary school. I also have a budgie named Kiwi. He is green, unlike Benny. Here is a HUGE vote from the both of us!

  Saturday evening here and Daddy is watching the football game so Mommy said we could go on the computer before we went to bed. It's been a really good day here, Mommy cleaned Friday so today was only play and cuddle time (YEAH)! I love weekends, I wish we could do this during the week but mommy says somebody has to work aroudn here and earn the seed money (hehehe) so I guess her and Daddy have to leave us during the week days to do that. Any way, Dallas laid an egg yesterday so she is not in a good mood today but she will get better. Kokomo broke his perch today so Daddy has to fix that tomorrow and he keeps throwing all of his bowls to the bottom of his cage trying to get attention. I've been really good though so I'm the good birdy today. hehehe. Oh well I guess that is it for tonight b/c it is bedtime. Left ya a vote. Come see us sometime.

  Hi Benny!
How are you? How's your new year going? All our snow is gone now. Mom said it sure was pretty while it lasted. She loved the snow but didn't like how cold it was. Mom is already hoping that it will snow again. She says that we just don't get a whole lot of snow in Ohio. Today it's supposed to be 50 out. Fifty degrees in early January? We were freezing just a few days earlier. I'm sorry I can't stay longer today. I was up kinda late helping my mom mix up a new batch of lovie bird seed/pellet mix. My job was to sit there and taste whatever she added. She had to laugh though when I wouldn't sample the food out of the pail like all the other lovies do. She actually had to hand me the individual seeds and other yummy tidbits to try. All she kept saying is, "Boy, are you spoiled!" hehehe! I could've sampled the food out of the pail I just loved all the attention I was getting. hehehe! Well, I wanna take a little nap. I hope you fly by and visit me again. Here's a vote for you!

  Hi Benny!
Thank you for flying by for a visit! When I first came home with my moms they put me in a GINOROUS box of millet sprays but I was too scared to eat much. I had a great New Year's Eve with my moms. Mom let me stay up late so I could have some homemade pizza with her and watch this big shiny ball drop in somewhere called New York City. She remembered not to add anything extra to her egg nog so I could have a taste but then in all the excitement she forgot to let me have a taste. I just don't understand why everyone was so excited when the ball reached the bottom of a very long pole. She says she's going to let me taste some tomorrow. I spent New Years Day with mom while she started making a nightie for my mom and new two birdie beds for some of my fiblings. She laughed when I flew over to where she was working to try to play with her pins, shred her pattern, and taste the fabric. Well, I gotta fly. It's way past my bedtime. Mom let me stay up a little late so I could keep her company. I hope you can fly by for another visit real soon. Here's a vote for you! Happy New Year!

  Hi Benny!
Thank you for flying by for a visit. Saturday was my mom and dad's anniversary so they decided to get something they called Chinese food. Mom shared her rice with me. WOW, it tasted wonderful and I just couldn't get enough of it. I loved it so much I was wearing it all over my beak. That made mom laugh. This year was my very first Christmas. I really LOVED Christmas. My family brought in this big tree and decorated it. I love looking at all the pretty lights on it. In fact mom wants to take a picture of me with our Christmas tree. Then there were the wonderful cookies that my moms baked. Mmmm, they were delicious. Did I tell you that I found a new toy in my stocking on Christmas morning? Santa brought all the birds here new toys! Today Mom says it's New Year's Eve and we're going to watch a big shiny ball drop in somewhere called New York City and have egg nog. If egg nog is even just half as yummy as Chinese fried rice was I gonna LOVE it! I hope you can fly by and visit me again next year. Hehehe, I don't understand it but mom says next year is just tomorrow. Here's another vote for you! Mom and I have really enjoyed hearing all about you and your flock. I'm so glad we're friends!

  HI Benny!
Thank you for flying by for a visit. Sorry we weren't by for a few days. Mom had internet problems. She also needed few days to rest because she pulled something in her shoulders. She went to the doctor yesterday and is feeling good as new today. I'm so glad because she promised to play with me just as soon as she was feeling better. I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas! Did Santa bring you a new toy or treat? I got a new toy for Christmas. I just love playing with it. In fact all the lovebirds here got new toys for Christmas. Well, I gotta fly. It's playtime for mom and I and I can't wait any longer. I missed playing with her the past few days. Here's a vote for you. I hope you can fly by for another visit real soon. Baby birdie kisses, Jingle

  Hi Benny!
Thank you for flying by for a visit. Santa's beard tastes kind of yucky. My moms wish that spring were starting, too, instead of winter. It's messy here because all most all the snow has melted. Poo, it's not gonna be a white Christmas. Lately my moms have been going Christmas shopping a lot. Yesterday they actually decided to just stay home. I had fun playing and snuggling with them all day. Mom put took a couple of pics of me last night playing hide and seed around her key board. She put them on my page. She thought I was adorable except that I kept trying to nip at her fingers. They were moving so fast that it was alot of fun trying to catch them. hehehe! Well, I gotta fly. My mom says she has too much to do to get ready for Christmas and not enough time to get it all done.......things are normal. hehehe! Here's a vote for you! I hope you can fly by for another visit real soon. Feathery baby birdie kisses, Jingle

  Hi Benny!
Thank you for flying by for a visit! My moms took Honey Bun, Cera and I to get out pic taken with Santa on Sunday. I really liked his nice fluffy beard. It's a great preening toy! Mom finally got the Christmas tree in the house a few days ago. Now we're working on decorating it. They let me play in it for a little while before they started decorating it. Mom says unless it snows some more or turns cold again we probably won't have a white Christmas. I can hardly wait for Christmas day when Santa will bring me a new toy or two. I gotta fly. Mom and I fell a little behind keeping in touch with our friends here. Here's another vote for you. I hope you can fly by for another visit real soon! Merry Christmas!

  HI Benny!
Thank you for flying by for a visit. You know I think they take me off their heads pretty quick when I land on them because they are afraid I might do a greenie meanie in their hair. That's what my moms call poop. I'm not trained to poop on cue yet like Cera. Cera is eight years old. Even Cookie who is several years younger is somewhat poop trained. I'll get the idea. I'm only about nine weeks old. When they first brought me home from the bird they talked about clipping my wings more. Now they really like it when I fly to them because I want to snuggle with them. Well, mom says the Christmas tree is definitely going up today. I gotta fy. I wanna snuggle with my moms some and maybe get a taste of what they're going to eat. I've never had the food they eat before. It's pretty good stuff. Last night mom was sharing some stuffing with me. It was so yummy. Mom couldn't tell how much of it I ate because it was all over my face. Here's another vote for you. I hope you can fly by and visit me again. Feathery baby kisses, Jingle

  Hi Benny!
Thank you for flying by and saying Hi. Mom thinks the Bird Channel is a bit messed up this morning because we had a whole lot of trouble signing in. Mom says she'll try Honey Bun and I together again after a while. It's just that Honey Bun use to be real sweet but he got picked on by his other fiblings and now he's learned to fight back. I'm really sweet and mom doesn't want to see that happen to me. Besides I have a lot of fun flying between my moms. My favorite place to land is on their heads. For some reason they keep taking me off their heads really quick. Yesterday we rearranged the house so the Christmas tree can go up. Mom can't believe it....only twelve days until Christmas and she still hasn't totally finished the outside lighting. I had fun yesterday snuggling and flying between my moms. I love them so much! Oh, I got to tried scramble eggs. Actually I tried them because I saw Cera eating some with mom so I just had to have some too. Mm-m-m, they were yummy. I gotta fly. Mom says she has to go out for a little bit this morning but then she'll be home the rest of the day working on the tree. I hope you can come by and visit me again. Here's a vote for you!

I just flew by to say welcome to the Bird Channel! You sure are cute! Wow, you have Meijers where you are too! Meijer is one of my mom's favorite stores! My name is Jingle and I'm new here too. I'm a baby lovebird. My mom says I'm really young because I still have a little black beak. I've only had a page here for 2-3 days and already I've met so many nice birds and their parronts. My friend Honey Bun sure was right when he was telling me about how friendly and nice everyone is here. I hope you can come by and visit me and maybe even Honey Bun, too. Here's a vote for you!
