  "Your bird is like your child! It should be worth the expense!" Who does that sound like? (I don't mean anyone person in particular.) They don't understand that our parents don't view a bird as worth it, do they? I have never had Beep to the vet. We can't afford it, and I said I would be able to remedy and minor illnesses (cold, dietary, etc.) without paying for a vet visit. I love Beep very much, but the family's welfare comes before his, that's for sure. He's JUST an animal. A very wonderful animal at that, but just an animal. That's my take on things. (If I had the money, I would give him everything he wants, but alas...)Have you tried dowel training him? Have you tried gloves? Maybe you need to start at "ground zero" with him and work your way back up... is he clicker trained? You handle most of the expenses for him don't you? Does he have a playstand? I think we can remedy this. I KNOW WE CAN! Besides, we have prayer, don't we?? :) Nothin' stronger. Not even that good ol' Mountain Dew! (Just a little bluegrass joke there. You like bluegrass dontcha? What artists?) One more thing about Buddy. What is his bedtime? Try having somebody put him to bed at 7 o'clock. That should help a ton! I lowered Beep's bedtime from 9:30 to 8:00 and that helps MILLIONS with hormones. I'm planning on lowering it still. (Here's a vote for ya! What does bird of the week get you? he he he... ) -Beep's Dad

  Yeah, I buy Beep toys from the store most of the time too, but he destroys those as fast as he can! I have to make toys geared more towards a cockatoo or macaw and THEN they last longer. :) I need to get him more toys. He has a few now, but he still has time to scream just for fun. I think I need to change that! I wonder what's the underlying problem with Buddy. I hope he get's better! Let's hope it's just the seasons and hormones. (here's a vote! What are the votes for anyway? :) ) -Beeps Dad

  It's so nice when they behave! I had Beep out for a couple of hours yestiddy, down in the basement. (It's really cold here, 5 or something low like that) So he was all fluffed up, leaning on my neck. "Dad! It's SO COLD DOWN HERE!" He survived. The hormones are getting better, because I'm shortening the hours he's awake. He tries the ol' vent rubbing routine, but I won't let him. I got him a new toy at a bird fair last Sunday (it's a wreath with all these plastic pieces attached) and it's almost completely destroyed already! I can't make or buy anything worthy of his beak. My mom thinks it's a waste of money. I think I agree... well, at least he has fun! :) Here's a vote- Beep's Dad

  Don't you love a fid's affection? Biting... *sigh* What we put up with for our birds! I hope Buddy gets better too! There was a short period of time when I was debating putting Beep up for adoption, because his screaming was SO bad and my family hates him. :) Luckily he mellowed out. Now if I can just change him from hormonal to normal! :D Here's a vote for you too! -Beep's dad

  Traveling is not for weaklings!
We have an 8-9 hour drive to PA, too. It's not a very fun drive... mountains, curves, tunnels, carsickness.... blech! I'm really thankful we didn't have to go this year. I miss my Beeper when we go on trips! The forum fiasco has faded once again. Thanks, in part, to the fid competition. Isn't that cool? Did you vote for Beep in the polls?? Didja? I hope so... :) Here's a vote for you! (cheer on the Buckeyes tonight for me!) -Beep's Dad

  Trips...
Yes, I was very glad we didn't have to go to PA for that very reason: SNOW! It always snows when we're there and the roads are horrid. We got caught in a "white out" on our way home last year. We couldn't see the highway divider right next to us! It was bad. Sounds like gobs and gobs of family! I bet it's great to see them all. Family=drama, doesn't it? haha :) You missed quite the fiasco on the forums... lucky. :) -Beep's dad (here's a vote.)

  Yes, you are right
Chickens came first! And the "evolving" you spoke of is more correctly called natural selection. However, in evolution, genetic information is gained, not lost. In natural selection (what we see today) nothing gains genetic information. Everything loses it! Have a good time in NY! If we had the money, we would've been in Scranton, PA right now. (I don't like it there, really) so we would've been in the same general vicinity! :) Here's a vote!!

Have a good day at the grind! Did you see my post in the forum thread "Which Came First." What do you think? Tell me honestly. Christmas is a great time of year, I really enjoy it, but this year I'm gettin' nothin. No excitement or anything. It's not like I don't know the "reason for the season" and all the scripture passages about Christmas and all the great things that come with it, it's just that they aren't affecting me like they did... Maybe I'm too shallow. I dunno. Here's a vote for YOU! -Beep

  We're all better now! Whoo-hoo! I'm very glad life is back to normal... almost. I'm on a no-dairy diet because my parents and I think I might be lactose intolerant. I never realized how much I would miss CHEESE! AND CEREAL! ;) We went deer hunting today, and my brother shot a nice doe.

Thanks for the username. I'll try and test it sometime today, maybe. I'm really sick though. My whole family has been getting the flu. I couldn't get to sleep last night it was so bad... so I'm really tired. Beep is understanding though! (weird, huh?)

Yeah, I wasn't banned, and I do plan on coming back... someday! I know you've gotta take it slow with the "witnessing" but I didn't even consider it full-blown "witnessing." I was just answering questions honestly and sincerely. Apparently if you have a strong faith/worldview and you don't hide it, it's forcing it on others... he he he. Oh well. They'll come around. Heck, they already are! The minute I leave they all come back! Sheesh. That's a really cool story about the girl on Dogchannel. Thanks so much for your kind words. -Beep's Dad (p.s.

I really needed to hear that. I was so worried I had offended the people who were supposed to be on my side! Someone "on my side" sent me a very nice private message about how pushing my beliefs would hinder the winning of souls. I had my account deleted and didn't reply to it though. I WASN'T pushing my beliefs! *sigh* Oh well. We can still chat on here, I guess. Luckybird will probably wonder where I went... we were messaging back and forth pretty regularly. Will you explain everything to her, should she ask, so no one else has to? THX again. -Beep's Dad (p.s. I wasn't banned. I opted to get out of it while I could.

  Strange and sad situation....
The forums hurt me... you recognize me? he he he. I figured you had a page here. Thought I'd message you one last time.

Tell everyone on the forum that I wasn't forcing my beliefs on them. They don't understand it at all. All my "opinions" are based on the Bible, so for me to post on some threads it was necessary for me to cite the Bible or my "Religious" beliefs. I didn't want to force anything. They're all just so un-used to someone with a Biblical worldview. I know I didn't do everything right, but I know I wasn't WRONG. Ok, maybe I was. :) You ain't mad at me are ya? I hope not... I got a couple of hate messages after my last post. I hope the mess I made ain't to big to be fixed. THX -Beep (Not really, it's me) he he he

  Hello!
My name is Ces Erdman and I am a huge bird dork! At the moment there is not a Bird Club in Wilmington, NC. So, I decided to start one myself! Come to find out, there are a lot of bird lovers in the Wilmington area and no where to express our interests. In the beginning this site will be a way to communicate with other bird lovers, ask questions, find birds to adopt, read interesting articles, share bird links, find bird sites, and of course share pics of our babies! Maybe as interest grows, we will be able to start a real Wimington NC Bird Club. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Please visit the new site at myspace.com/wncbc or e mail me at www.wilmingtonncbirdclub@hotmail.com

Come visit me, Moulin Rouge, Bo & Riki.
