I always wanted an African Gray parrot. They are just gorgeous and oh so smart. I purchased Rocket's cage before I purchased him. I kept looking around in stores that sell parrots. Rocket sort of picked me and we have been "Best Buds" ever since! Rocket was the second bird to join our household. His older brother, "Buddy", is a dusky headed conure. Rocket also has a younger sister, "Susan" who is a solomon island eclectus and a younger brother, "Pedro" who is a yellow naped amazon..

Hi! My name is ROCKET, Wonder Wings 1st Base

I am a Congo African Grey from whiting, NJ.

Rocky, Rock Rock, Rock, Rocket Birdie, Rockers

12 years old   M

Congo African Grey

Rocket likes mashed potatoes, macadamia nuts, cashews, pasta, blueberries, orange slices and whole grain bread with an occasional bit of cheddar cheese. Rocket is not a picky eater at all, and will try most anything.

Rocket likes to hang out on the door of his cage or on the back of a kitchen chair. Rocket also likes to play on his playgym, which is on top of his cage. Rocket loves to invade Pedro's space (cage) when he can. (Pedro is our yellow naped amazon.) Rocket especially likes sneaking into Pedro's cage and eating his food and taking a bath in his water bowl! He loves his evening cuddle time with Mom. Who says Grays aren't cuddly??!!!!

Rocket dislikes unfamiliar items, strange people, and unusual situations; and he doesn't like to share "getting attention" with the other parrots. Rocket is also a coach and relief pitcher for the Bird Channel Wonder Wings baseball team. Rocket doesn't like it when he doesn't get a turn during the games to pitch a few balls. As a coach for the team, he also gets aggravated when he can tell that some of the players have not been practicing! LOL

I love how my owner keeps my cage spic and span clean. She gives me great foods and spends lots of cuddle time with me at night. She is my VERY FAVORITE PERSON. No One else can even touch me!!! You get out of an african gray, what you put into them...and Colleen is my very favorite person!

Rocket enjoys making burping and "gas passing" noises. He imitates the sounds of almost everything in the household that makes some sort of noise. He also immitates everyone in the household's voices, including the other parrot's voices and sounds! He likes to take a bath in Pedro's water dish whenever he has the opportunity to invade his space (cage). (Rocket only has a water bottle in his cage...because he made such a HUGE mess with the water bowl). Who says that CAG's don't like to take baths!! Since having his cage moved right next to Pedro's cage, he has also learned to make the sound of "Pedro making a poop". Rocket likes to do this while I am cleaning Pedro's cage, and he is still in it!! I believe that Rocket thinks that it is funny to watch, when I pull back really fast to avoid being pooped on!!! It took a few times before I caught onto what he was doing!!! Rocket has quite a sense of humor (yes, a parrot can have a sence of humor) and he is also a VERY gifted talker. I have actually had short conversations with him!!! "What are you looking at"???!!!! He is too funny and is the "alpha king parrot" of our flock!.

If you can find a way to get a reaction out of it...just do it! It doesn't matter whether the reaction is a good one or a bad one! ;-) Just as long as you "rattle someone's cage"!!!!!.

  Hi Rocket,

How are you? My name is Oz and I'm a Rose Breasted Cockatoo. Mommy is my 3rd owner and she says that I'm now in my Forever Home. She also wants to know IF I know that I'm a Cockatoo because I'm so sweet and the biggest in the house and the quietest LOL! Also, I live in an Avian Accent Cage (more like a beautiful pc. of furniture) which Mommy said was very expensive but that I'm worth it! Thanks Mom, I love you "Too". Oh, my Mommy say it was so nice to meet your Mom at Parrot Palooza and also says that you have a beautiful Mommy which I'm sure you know already! Here's a vote for you, cutie. I hope we can be Friends. Bye for now.

Winghugs,
Oz (The Pink Too)

  (Ö> HiYa Rocket! Oh yeah, you be B-A-D!
Bet ya was wonderin’ if’ ya’d ever hear from ME again, wasn’t ya?! Well, here I am, like a bad penny, showin’ up at your cage door again … with what I hope is some REAL EGGSCITIN’ NEWS for ya!

So, here’s what we got. Last year’s Officiatin’ Staff o’ The Birdie BazeBol League’ve been mullin’ it over an’ they’ve come up with a Jim Dandy idea to help stave off the cravin’s that some o’ you Birdie BazeBol Players an’ Fans’ve been sufferin’ from, ‘cause o’ the lack o’ playin’ this Season.

They’ve all put their heads t’gether to give us a one-time opportunity t’ play ourselves a little BazeBol THIS summer! YuP! YaHooooo!! We’re goin’ back t’ Th’ Stadium!!! The 2012 All*Star Birdie BazeBol game’ll be played at KEVLAR Memorial Stadium th’ afternoon o’ Saturday, August 18th. Th’ plan is t’ play BazeBol startin’ at 3:00 pm CENTRAL TIME, an’ then party that night at the same time we always party for Th’ Milonga! (Translation for th’ Time Zone Challenged: 4:00 pm Eastern, 2:00 pm Mountain, 1:00 pm Pacific.That’s for the BazeBol Game now!)

So, I’m here right now t’ fill y’uns in on all th’ What-Not’s an’ Why-For’s of how this thing is gonna work. So tuck yer feathers b’hind yer ear holes and listen up ….

Th’ first thing that has t’ happen is CHOOSIN’ TEAMS.

Here’s how that’s gonna work. See this here hat I got in my wing? Well, right over there on that table is a bunch o’ scraps o’ paper for y’all t’ write your names on an put in th’ hat.

BUT THERE’s A CATCH!

There’s only ONE birdie PER FLOCK allowed to put their name in th’ hat ! ! ! I know. I KNOW! But there’s only 12 positions available on two teams so we gotta make it so’s as many flocks get a chance t’ play as possible, an’ this was the fairest way the Umps could think of.

So … Two teams; twelve players each (10 reg’lar positions an’ 2 reserves). One team’s gonna be ALL GIRL~BIRDS and one team’s gonna be ALL BOY~BIRDS!

We’re gonna keep the “HAT” out ‘til July 15. Then those Umps’ll pick the players for each team out o’ the hat … lottery style. An’ th’ positions’ll be assigned th’ same way too … lottery style.

You can bring all your little pieces o’ paper with your names writ on ‘em t’ my page so’s Th’ Kommish don’t miss any of ‘em. Bring ‘em t’ MY PAGE (#66865). DON’T leave your name on Th’ Milonga Page ‘r Th’ Kidder’s page ‘r RanePlayer’s page, an’ NOT on Th’ BazeBol Page ‘cause it might get missed! An’ I ab-si-tively, pos-o-lutely DON’T want that t’ happen!!!

GOT IT?! GOOD ! ! !

Come visit me, (Ö> Charles Riley Jake ~ AaaaaAA! & ..

  We also got all yous CheerLeadin’ Types covered too! An’ the same deal goes as for th’ Players: Names in th’ hat; two squads; maximost number o’ birdies on each squad – 6; one squad ALL GIRL~BIRDS (who’ll be cheerin’ for th’ BOY~BIRDS’ team, by th’ way) an’ one squad ALL BOY~BIRDS (cheerin’ for th’ GIRL~BIRDS’ team o’ course!); chosen lottery style. An’ the same rule applies ‘bout only ONE birdie PER FLOCK bein’ a CheerLeader. H-O-W-E-V-E-R, there can be one birdie’s name in the hat for PLAYIN’ and one birdie’s name in th’ hat for CHEERIN’ from th’ same flock. (An’ I don’t wanna be in ANY birdies flock meetin’s when they’re decidin’ which birdies from the flockily get t’ put their names in th’ hat an’ which ones don’t! NosirreeBob!!!)

Now, in case you’re one o’ th’ birdies who weren’t at th’ Milona last Saturday night, you missed what th’ names o ‘ th’ teams’r gonna be. Them ol’ soft hearted Umps decided it would be nice t’ honor th’ most recent Rainbow Bridge Departees in namin’ the teams for this here All*Star Game, just like they honored ‘em at th’ Milonga that night. SO … The GIRL~BIRDS’ team is gonna be called “Th’ Angel Wings” an’ th’ BOY~BIRDS team is gonna be known as “Berts at Bat”. Got a nice ring to it, don’t it?

Th’ Team Line-Ups’ll be announced at th’ next Milonga, July 21st.


So get yer names in the HAT an’ then get out there an’ start warmin’ up them Wings an’ Bats an’ doin’ cart wheels an’ stuff!!!


AaaaaAA!! <Ö)

It sounds like you are a lot of fun. I also like to invade my sister Mariah's space she does not like it. I am 6 months old and Mariah is a year. We are both very cuddly with our mom so I agree who said African greys don't cuddle?
Thanks for visiting me.

Oct 25th… It was a very sad day here for many. Rolf C Hagen passed away a few days ago, and it was in today’s newspaper, causing a lot of talk everywhere. Mom, who knows members of the family, had heard about it ahead but did not say anything. She was waiting for the obit to be published. Yes… she is going to the funeral to pay her last respects. On a happier note, word got out to Speedo Canada, that I am giving Speedo a lot of publicity. Mom has been in email contact with one nice person from Speedo, whose Montreal office is very close to our home. The doorbell rang early this afternoon, and mom was handed a package by one of the shipping companies. I won’t tell you about it yet. Mom got Dad to film the entire thing and we hope BC allows it on here. It has been uploaded and we are waiting. A warning… do not view it with food or drink in your mouth. LOL And now, another chapter of the History of the Speedo…


LZR Racer:
Perhaps the company's most controversial move came with 2008's unveiling of the LZR (pronounced "lazer") Racer — a suit, as Speedo's website boasts, "so fast, it was banned from competition". Indeed the LZR Racer was banned by FINA in 2009, but not until swimmers wearing this suit had already broken at least 46 world records. The super smooth suit, which was optimized with the help of NASA wind tunnels, uses welded seams and multiple woven fabrics to reduce drag by up to six percent. In addition, the LZR, like the Fastskin, utilizes a core stabilizer, which acts almost as a girdle, to reduce muscle movement. This is designed to help the swimmer maintain the proper angle in the water for longer periods of time. Popular Science magazine named this suit to their "100 Best of What's New '08" list, calling it "The fastest swimsuit in the world".

Oct 15th… It is hard to believe that half the month is gone already. I don’t know where the time has gone to. Mom has been really busy with the house, but she has been so good about helping me get my blogs done. Another great big thank you to all of you great birdy friends, for coming by to vote for me so far this month. Please don’t stop now. But now… more about the speedo…

Speedo USA's online catalog divides its women's swimwear lines into the following categories: Competition, Fashion, Racing, Aquatic Fitness, and Lifeguard. Speedo International offers the additional categories of women's swimsuits: Essentials, Bikinis, and Maternity as well as full-bodied wetsuits.

Today, October 10th is actually Thanksgiving… and Columbus Day, but of course, it is going on that bewitching hour here in Montreal, and it will be the 11th shortly, so that is why Mom wrote the blog of the 9th the way she did. We had wonderful hot weather today, and tomorrow is going to be somewhat cooler, and come Wednesday we are back to that dreaded rain and cool weather again. The good thing about it is mom will be home with us and we can watch a movie or spend time playing on our playgyms. But you don’t want to hear about that. You want to read about the speedo, so here you go…
Speedo began the 21st century with the introduction of its Fastskin swimsuit and, again, broke world records when the Summer Games returned to the swimwear leader's home town. The company website boasts that 13 out of the 15 swimming records broken in the 2000 Sydney Olympics were by athletes wearing Speedo. Three years later, Speedo celebrated its 75th anniversary with special limited edition lines endorsed by Jerry Hall, Naomi Campbell and others. In 2004, Michael Phelps wore the latest evolution of the Fastskin series in Athens to become the first swimmer to earn eight medals. Phelps followed up this performance four years later, earning eight golds at Beijing, while wearing Speedo's LZR Racer suit. In 2010, the company launched Speedo Sculpture ShapeLine, a new line of body-shaping swimsuits for women.

October 9th....Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians and Happy Columbus Day to those of you in the USA. Mom took all our cages outdoors and gave them the final big scrub down before the cold weather hits, and from what she heard, there is not even going to be an Indian summer. This is the last nice hot weekend we are going to have where we can go outside in the sun. And now, what you’ve all been waiting for – the continuing history of the speedo…
Even under the new corporate command, Speedo continued its winning tradition of utilizing cutting edge technology to decrease drag in the water and increase speed into the 1990s. The decade saw the creation of the low-drag S2000 suit, the chlorine resistant Endurance line as well as the Aquablade series which was worn by more than three-fourths of medal winners at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Games.
It's never too late Rocket!

  Hi from Zak!
October 5th, and it is already day 5 of my campaign for BOTM. Mom was busy this afternoon, something with the house and then she went to her dance class, but now, it is my blogging time until the wee hours of the morning if it takes that long. I gotta love Mom. When she is done dancing, she is hungry and that means stopping for something to eat on the way home. Tonight she picked up Chinese takeout and I love Chinese vegetables with a bit of steamed rice. So, while Mom is typing for me, I get to stand on the playstand right beside her and fill my crop yet again. What a wonderful treat. What a wonderful surprise. Before going on with the History of the Speedo, I want to thank you all again for you votes and your support. To all the new voters here, all the older blogs are on my page, at the end of each day of blogs. If you would like, don’t be shy – ask me and I will gladly copy and paste them on your pages.
And now…the continuing history…
The end of the 1950s also saw the beginning of a long-lasting business partnership which continues to this day. In 1958, Speedo began the manufacture of American Warnaco's White Stag ski-wear line. In exchange, in 1961, White Stag became the exclusive US distributor of Speedo swimwear. Through White Stag, Speedo's product line expanded to include men's and women's sportswear. By the middle of the 1960s, Speedo had acquired 30% of Nottingham, UK textile manufacturer Robert Shaw and Company, Ltd. and had established a European subsidiary. Licenses were also granted to Japanese and South American corporations. The 1968 Mexico City Summer Olympics saw 27 of the 29 gold medalists — 22 of which set world records — wearing Speedo brand swimsuits.

October 4th 2011… and this Zak just got in from a night out with the guys. But now it is time to move on with my campaign for BOTM. Okay, let’s get on with the history of speedos…
The Speedo sponsored Australian men’s swim team took home eight gold medals and brought a new worldwide level of notoriety to the company which debuted the swim briefs that would become synonymous with the brand name. By 1957, Speedo had the exclusive license to manufacture and distribute Jockey brand men's underwear in Australia. The company finished off the 1950s by exporting to the United States and exploring potential opportunities in South America, Europe, New Zealand and Japan.
Parts 1,2 and 3 of the History of Speedos are on my page, at the end of the blogs from each day. Please come by and read them. If you would rather I post them here on your page, let me know... I will gladly do that. Thanks for your support!

  Hi Rocket and flock
Your sure good at that chicken dance and must of done this before LOL. You know at the beginning of this month when I first was asking for votes to help me get BOTM I was really scared and was so afraid I wasn’t going to get it. I knew if I didn’t that mom or I wouldn’t try again though. I had never signed up to get botm because I was afraid I would fail but this year mom said if we don’t try now your going to be too old Chi chi. I was scared and so was mom. I just didn’t realize the friends I have on BC that would help me and make this dream come true. Your one great bunch and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We will be here for you too my friends so never hesitate to ask us. BC is a very tight family and I am so blessed to be apart of it all. Bless you all and I love you!! “I hope you wrote, that you gave me a vote cause I’m running for bird of the month”. V4U. Your forever friend, Chi chi xoxoxox

I like your tip toeing.Your so cute. Yep your mom knows alot about me LOL. Thank you for the vote today and your loyal support. Mom said I needed to get a bath today and she gave me my bath bowl in my cage. I took Lion(he is my stuffed animal toy I dearly love) off the orbiter and he fell into the bowl also. Mom keeps putting him back on my orbiter. Oh yes yesterday when I had Lion under the paper I just want to tell you what we were doing. We were making plans for tonight! Chi chi gets all dressed up and heads to the dance hall to do some dancing with all her friends. She announces free drinks and food on my tab tonight so help your self and hope you all came for a great fun time tonight. I bought Lion with me and for every vote I get you can dance with Lion or me or both of us which ever you prefer. Chi chi laughs and hugs all her friends and thanks them for coming to have fun with her and thanks them for the votes they are helping her to get closer each day for BOTM. “I hope you wrote, that you gave me a vote cause I’m running for bird of the month”.

  Aww Rocket
That red garter looks great on you and loved how you beaked it off my leg LOL. Susan is a little wet but I think I got her all dried off with the towel and blow dryer and she is enjoying her drink again so that is good. Thank you for your support and votes for my dream of BOTM. Leaving a kiss for each vote I get today(kiss). On Sunday when I went to the bird social King Willie suggested I needed a boing to practice my dance moves. I sure am glad I followed his advice and since he is BOTM he knew just what I needed too. I have been practicing my dance moves on the boing. I never had one before but they sure keep a fid active and quite a challenge to climb on them. I know it is going to help me with my dancing too. Thanks King Willie for the suggestion! “I hope you wrote, that you gave me a vote cause I’m running for bird of the month”. V4U. Your forever friend, Chi chi xoxoxox

  Wow Rocket
You can teach me some of those smooth moves of yours perhaps. Thank you for all your help and votes along this journey for BOTM for me. As you all know this isn’t something any birdy can do all alone so I sure do appreciate all your help along the way. More then I can ever tell you! Chi chi gets all dressed up and puts multiple leg garters on both legs in different colors and sizes. She stuffs a lot more into her purse. Chi chi cheeches as she walks up to the dance hall and is all excited to see her friends again tonight. When she walks in she tells the bartender all drinks and refreshments are on her tonight. Chi chi goes up to the stage and announces “I am glad your all here to have fun again tonight and to make it more fun” she slowly raises her dress to revel the garters “I will give everyone a garter that leaves a vote for me”. “I love you all”. “I hope you wrote, that you gave me a vote cause I’m running for bird of the month.” V4U Your forever friend, Chi chi xoxoxoxxo

  Hi Rocket
Thanks for dancing with me and I am here any old time your willing to go again. You all dance so great and I am giving lessons to any birdy that wants to learn later. Can you believe I had one white feather and it fell out today. Mom kept it though and she said she knows I am getting older because I am slowing down some and not as spicey as I once was. I keep telling mom I am 9 ½ though but lovies can live to be 16 or older too. Its hard to believe we have been on BC for 5 years too! “I hope you wrote, that you gave me a vote cause I’m running for bird of the month”. V4U. Your forever friend, Chi chi xoxoxox

  Hi Rocket ~~ V4U!
Although we are certainly still mourning the passing of our Baseball Commissioner, I did want to let you know that Micky BC#40677 has officially accepted the position of "Short Fielder" for the Wonder Wings. If you have a second, could you fly by and welcome him to the team? He is so excited to be a part of the group. I'll let you know when our team pictures are ready ... they look good from what I have seen so far. Hugs, Sam

  HI my NJ buddies!
Glad you stopped in and sure will share the nutriberries with you and will bring some avicakes too! Yea Gus and Susan can have the millet and talk things over between them selves. Thanks for the vote!Well last night mom cleaned our cages out and since it was a nice sunny day we got to sit outside to cheep to the wild birds. It was so funny cause dad was out there with us and the male and female wild duck came and dad fed them some corn. They came pretty close to dad and we watched them too. They sure do quack funny. I thought that was really neat. When you leave me a vote would you put what number it was so I can get in the 10,000 club? Thanks a lot for helping me with this. “Love is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune with out the words and never stops at all.” V4U Your kissing cuz, Chi chi

  Hi Rocket!
Zebers here for my frother Huey. First of all, mommy wanted me to thank Miss Lucy Blue for letting all of our friends here on BC know what is going on with Huey...we haven't been on for awhile but Lucy's mommy saw my mommy's post on facebook (mommy seems to think that facebook is more important than BC!! Unbelievable!) Yes it is true. Our dear Huey got another bad injury. Mommy had a couple of the birds out and was keeping an eye on us like she always does when we're out at the same time, but it only took 5 seconds and our newest frother Babe attacked Huey and hurt him quite badly. He has two compound fractures in the humorous bone of his left wing (that means the bone is sticking out of the skin). It was very scary and we didn't expect him to make it through the night, but as you know, our Huey is a fighter and he's really doing great! Better than anyone expected. The other bad part to this story is that Dr Melissa is in Australia right now!! So we don't even have a vet that we know! Thankfully, mommy found a very nice vet that saw Huey right away after his accident and took very good care of him. We got in contact with Dr Melissa through e-mail and she gave us the name of a very good birdie vet in St. Paul. His name is Dr. Redig and he works at the Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, so ALL he does is birds and his specialty is orthopedics! So mommy is quite relieved about that. So Huey's surgery is set for this Tuesday the 22nd of February. Right now he is resting comfortably in the incubator right next to mommy's bed. He's eating like a trooper and he even started screaming again today! That made mommy very happy to hear!! He's in very good spirits despite his injuries and he wanted me to tell you thank you so very, very much for all of the love and prayers. Mommy reads him every single one of your messages and it's definitely helping him feel better! Thank you for being so kind and remembering us even when we haven't been around much lately. And please don't be upset at our newest frother here on BC. He was just being a bird and wasn't trying to be mean...mommy shouldn't have left big and little birds out together! PLEASE learn from her mistake and be very very careful getting out and playing together with your flockmates! We love you so very much!! Please continue to pray for Huey and I promise to keep you updated as he continues to heal. Beaky kisses ~Zebers

  Hahaha!!!
Rocket, you're a bird after my own heart!! I love playing tricks on Mom by immitating a sound!! I have the doorbell sound down pat...the front doorbell & side doorbell have different rings to them. One day I kept Mom stopping her very annoying "clean her room day" to answer the front door. The next time I did it, it was the side door!! She didn't catch on to the point she told her mate that the kids in the neighborhood were ringing the doorbell & running off! He was outside doing his chores & she asked him had he seen any kids out there. He told her she was crazy!!Hahahaha!!! When she came back in, I did the doorbell sound again just as she came thru MY door! She told me I was a rascle for playing those tricks on her! I laughed at her outright!! Aahhhh...it's good to be a rascley bird!
