Hi Everyone, I have some great news to share with you all. I was entered into my very first ever bird show by my birdsitter/bree- der. I was in the novice division for senegals. In two days I came away with a total of 6 ribbons. 4 first place ribbons, one 4th place and one 5th place ribbon. Could have won more but since my wings are clipped it held me back. When mom takes pics of me with my ribbons she is going to place them here on my page for all to see. She is so proud of me. Both my senegal parents were top show winning birds. Brother Maxi also won honorable mention for looking so good for his age of 15 3/4yrs.. ............. Met her at a bird fair. She took an instant liking to me and chose me as her new owner. I wasn't going to buy a bird but when she chose me, I just had to take her home. It was instant love!... ...HATCHDATE JAN 26, 2003..

  Hi Sweetpepper
we haven't been on BC either because our dad is having a lot of health issues and as soon as he hears mom go to use the computer he needs her for something. mom then loses her traIN of thought, which isn't hard for her to do, while helping dad. tonight was better because he seems to be feeling better. it did get cold out. i think its 18 right now but at least we didn't get much snow.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  Hi SweetPepper,
Part 1

The meaning of the name “Laka” is: “Gentle, Tame”.

Aolani Name meaning & Origin is: “Beautiful Heavenly Cloud”

Hawaiian Goddesses
by Serge Kahili King

The Hawaiian concept of gods and goddesses is very different from that of Western and Near Eastern traditions, from African and Australian traditions, and from North and South American traditions. Although still different, it bears a closer resemblance to the more eclectic traditions of India, China, and Japan than with any others.

The word for god or goddess in Hawaiian is akua, whose meaning is very indeterminate. It was applied to the spirit, i.e., the invisible motive or creative essence, of anything and everything. Therefore, the Creator, the wind, the first aspect of the full moon, a high-ranking chief, a slave, a ghost, and that which causes a motor to work might all be called akua in certain contexts. For the most part, though, the word was commonly applied to forces, persons, and things which had a lot of mana, i.e., power or influence. What this means is that, when we hear or read stories of an entity such as Pele, the volcano goddess, we can never be certain whether the story is about the spirit of a natural phenomenon, the human ancestor of a particular family line, or both, or neither.

Another important feature of Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that they are often completely unrelated. To people familiar with the Greek Olympians as a family opposing the Titans as a family, or the Norse Aesir against the Vanir, relations between Hawaiian gods and goddesses seem incomprehensible. As Martha Beckwith says in Hawaiian Mythology, "It seems to me therefore probable that different immigrant families brought with them the gods and ritual familiar to them." Unlike the Hindu system, which at least tries to form the gods and goddesses of many different peoples, times, and places into an integrated whole, the Hawaiians seldom bothered to do so, allowing vastly different traditions to exist side by side in happy chaos. And in the few instances where some integration was attempted, it was always very limited in scope.

  Part 2
Part 2
One more feature to be mentioned about Hawaiian gods and goddesses is that the more power they were assumed to have, the more different forms they were thought to take at will. The most powerful could take forms that were either human, animal, vegetable, mineral, or other. The god Kamapua'a, for example, could turn into a human, a pig, a fish, a type of grass, or even the rain. In Hawaiian these forms are called kino lau (many bodies).

In this article we are putting our focus on Hawaiian goddesses, and since there are so many of them, we will only look at seven of the most important ones. Even then, only a small amount of information will be given for each one. In addition to information available from various written sources, such as Beckwith's Hawaiian Mythology, I will add information given me by members of the Kahili family who taught me their traditions pe At various times, then, I have taught about the goddesses in different ways, and that has led to some confusion on the part of students. So, for healing purposes only at a beginner level for understanding and using the concept of Hawaiian goddesses, here is the Ola 'Ana Papakahi o Na Akua Wahine Hawai'i, "The First Level Organization of Hawaiian Goddesses" in order of attributions and associations of name, principle, color, element, and primary function.

Hina: 'Ike, White, Water, Awareness (Knowledge)

Haumea: Kala, Red, Stone, Freedom (Release)

Pele: Makia, Orange, Fire, Focus (Energy)

Hi'iaka: Manawa, Yellow, Wind, Presence (Purpose)

Laka: Aloha, Green, Plants, Love (Compassion)

Kapo: Mana, Blue, Animals, Power (Ability)

Uli: Pono, Purple, People, Success (Effectiveness)

That’s all for today folks, sorry I couldn’t find a spooky story to tell you, but I’m still looking.

Thank you for all the love and support for my birdie of the month campaign.

Happy Po ‘akolu (Happy Wednesday). Humpty humpty humpty away until Friday comes.

Here’s a vote for you, sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses.

Love from Hawaii,

  HEYA, SWEETPEPPER!
WELL LET'S HOPE THAT YOUR MOM DOESN'T GET SICK OR NAUSEATED FROM THE MEDS, OR THAT THEY ARE EXPENSIVE. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL GIVE HER A MONTH SUPPLY FIRST, IN CASE SHE HAS THAT REACTION. TOO BAD THEY CAN'T GIVE HER SAMPLES--WORTH A TRY TO SEE IF THEY HAVE THEM.

IT WAS COLD HERE TODAY. WE HAD A HIGH OF 16. RIGHT NOW IT IS 8 HERE. GRANDPA WENT OUT FOR HIS PAPER AND HE SAID IT WAS SO BITTERLY COLD OUT. MOM DID NOT GO ANYPLACE TODAY. SHE FIGURES SHE WILL GO TO MEIJER TOMORROW. THEY HAVE THINGS ON SALE THAT MOM USES. SHE GOT A 30% OFF COUPON FOR KOHL'S, AND COULD USE SOME NEW TOWELS AND A RUG FOR THE BATHROOM--I KINDA CHEWED THE RUGS IN THERE, AND PULLED SOME OF THE RUG APART. THE TOWELS ARE MAINLY FOR SHOW, BUT THEY COVER THE TOWEL BAR THAT I LIKE TO SIT ON, AND THEY ARE AGES OLD. THAT MEANS SHE IS LEAVING ME FOR A WHILE, WHICH IS NOT SOMETHING I LIKE AT ALL. BUT SHE WILL BRING ME BACK GOODIES, SO I GUESS IT IS OKAY.

STAY WARM! SENDING YOU WING HUGS, AND TO YOUR MOM AND KACEY!

  Hi SweetPepper
Poor Liv, she still has pink eye & she also has a stomach virus! It hasn't been a good week for her! Mom hasn't been on BC the past 2 days because we were taking care of Livi and she spent the night last night. I love the grandkiddos sooooo much, but they don't like me chasing them around, but they do like giving me kisses!

We are in for some really cold weather. Between now and Sunday the high temps will be in the teens and low 20's and the low temps will be in the single digits! On Saturday the temp will be around 11°/-2° and very windy & with the wind chill it could feel like -20°! That's way too cold!

I hope your day was a good one!

SOUNDS LIKE THE WEATHER IS NOT THAT BAD WHERE YOU ARE, BUT JENNY LYNN SAYS IT IS BELOW ZERO AT HERE HOUSE. I THOUGHT YOU TWO LIVED PRETTY CLOSE TOGETHER, BUT I GUESS IT IS FAR ENOUGH TO AFFECT THE WEATHER.

IT IS REALLY WARM HERE AGAIN TODAY WITH A HIGH OF 85. THAT IS WHAT WE ARE EGGSPECTING FOR NEXT WEEK. SO LOTS OF SUNBATHS FOR ME. MOM AND DAD TRICKED ME TODAY. I WAS UP ON MY BOOKCASE AND NOT BUDGING, SO MOM CALLED DAD TO OPEN MY DOOR. THAT GOT ME TO HER SHOULDER, BUT SHE CAN'T PICK ME UP WITHOUT GETTING A BITE FROM THERE. SO DAD STEPPED IN A BIT AND OF COURSE I WENT TO MOM'S LAP. NEXT THING I KNOW SHE HAS SNATCHED ME UP AND INTO THE CARRIER I GO. WE HAD A NICE TIME OUT THERE THOUGH. I THINK MOM EVEN GOT A LITTLE BIT OF A TAN!!

THE CONTEST IS GOING WELL, BUT EVERYBIRDY STILL NEEDS TO BE COMING TO VOTE. WE HAVE THE SAME FAITHFULS NOW, BUT MORE BIRDIES SHOULD PARTICIPATE. I MAKE A POINT OF VOTING FOR DOMINGO #5 IN THE SINGLE AND LOVIN' CATEGORY, SINCE BC DROPPED HIS PIC. I THINK THAT GIVES HIM A DISADVANTAGE. HIS PIC IS PRETTY FUNNY.

My goodness, here it is hump day again, and dad's nurse is coming today to recheck a few things about him and reinstate his VA Home Health Care approval! It is bitter cold here with temps of well below zero, and it will be that way all week, come on Spring time! We all feel sorry for the outside birdies, they are still looking around for food, so we feed them, they need to maintain their body heat!

  Hi Sweetpepper
The flu and cold are going around at the schools. The one grand had the flu but the other one had a relapse in having a cold but they both went back to school today so hopefully wont have a relapse.
We got some snow during the night but the drive way and sidewalk stayed clear. Mom went for groceries and by the time she came home it was snowing pretty good and getting a bit icy so mom was got home ok. I sure was happy when she came back home though dad was home. I hung on to mom and helped her put the groceries away too. I know she couldn’t do that with out me helping her. I wanted to see all the goodies too. Its lots of fun to go in the bathroom with mom while she takes her bath. She keeps a spare roll of toilet paper on top of the cabinet above the toilet. I get up there and toss it off and it goes flying. Mom usually doesn’t put it back again while I am in there with her so I get the one chance to make it fly and boy do I LOL. “My heart smiles just thinking of you.“ Leaving a vote for you my friend~~Gus (RIP Chi chi)

MOM HEARD THE EXPLANATION THAT ELI GAVE--HE SAID THAT THE GAME WAS NOT OVER, AND YOU DON'T CELEBRATE IF THERE IS TIME LEFT ON THE CLOCK. HE WAS CONCENTRATING ON THE NEXT PLAY THEY WERE GONNA CALL. MAKES SENSE. I KNOW HE IS HAPPY FOR PEYTON, THAT IS FOR SURE.

MOM STAYED INSIDE TODAY--GUESS THE NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR SNOW BLOWED GRANDPA'S DRIVEWAY AND WALKWAY OUT. SO HE WENT OUT FOR HIS OWN PAPER TODAY. THEN HE RAN TO PICK UP ICE MELT (THE CHEAPER STUFF) AND SOME NUTS AND BOLTS FOR A VERY OLD SHOVEL THAT HE REALLY LIKES TO USE, THAT THE BOLTS CAME OUT OF. IT WAS SUNNY OUT AND THE SUN MADE IT FEEL WARMER BUT NOW WE ARE GETTING SOME SNOW, AND THEN THE COLD COMES IN.

TOMORROW MOM WILL BE RUNNING TO SAM'S TO PICK UP MY TOMATOES. SHE DOESN'T THINK SHE NEEDS TOO MUCH ELSE, BUT MIGHT STOP FOR SOMETHING LIKE A PAPAYA FOR ME IF THE ONES AT SAM'S ARE GREEN.

OTHER THAN THAT, WE ARE WORKING ON THE BUFFET PIX FOR THE MILONGA. YOU AND AUNT ROSE AND AUNT GAIL DID SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB ON THE PIX FOR THE MILONGA PIX CONTEST. LOVE THEM!

WELL, IF THERE WAS A LOCAL PLACE LIKE THE MOOSE LODGE WHERE THE BUNCO WAS HELD EVERY MONTH MOM WOULD PROBABLY STILL BE GOING. ALTHOUGH THE BUNCO GAME WAS ON WEDNESDAY (GUESS IT STILL IS) AND THAT IS MOM'S LATE GYM DAY, SHE STILL GETS HOME BY 6:15 AND WOULD HAVE TIME TO SHOWER BEFORE THE GAME. HOWEVER THAT WOULD MEAN SHE WOULDN'T HAVE TIME WITH ME BEFORE SHE LEAVES. SO I AM GLAD SHE DROPPED OUT.

MOM WENT BACK TO THE PHARMACY TO PICK UP HER SCRIPT TODAY. WITH THE RIGHT SECONDARY INSURANCE INFO HER PRICE WENT FROM $92 DOWN TO $10. PLUS SHE PICKED UP SOME GLUCOSAMINE THERE YESTERDAY AND GOT A COUPON FOR A FEMININE PRODUCT SHE ALWAYS BUYS AT THAT STORE. SHE PICKED THAT UP TODAY TOO, AND IT WAS ON SALE PLUS WITH THE COUPON IT WAS ANOTHER $2.50 OFF! MOM CALLS THAT A GOOD TRIP.

AND I FINALLY GOT MY SUNBATH TODAY. STILL VERY WARM OUT THERE AT 85 DEGREES, BUT THE WIND IS DONE FOR NOW, THANK GOODNESS. THAT WILL HELP MOM'S SINUSES TOO! I GAVE MOM A VERY HARD TIME ABOUT GETTING INTO MY CARRIER, BUT AFTER MANY ATTEMPTS AT BRIBERY DAD TRICKED ME. I WAS KNOCKING ON THE DOOR TO MY ROOM FOR HIM TO COME PLAY "UNDER THE DOOR", AND HE OPENED THE DOOR. SO OF COURSE I HAD TO FLY TO MOM'S LAP TO PROTECT HER, AND SHE SNATCHED ME RIGHT UP AND PLOPPED ME INTO THE CARRIER. THE NEXT THING I KNEW WE WERE IN THE FRONT YARD, BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT IT WAS VERY NICE OUT THERE AND I ENJOYED IT. I JUST HAD TO MAKE MOM WORK FOR IT, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. We are finishing up laundry and getting mom ready to go back to work tonight.
McKenzie is feeling happy today. I can tell because she keeps getting into trouble!hehehehehehe
Mom went to Costco yesterday. The problem with that is trying to find places to put the stuff. We have a case of applesauce sitting on the computer desk and cereal on the breakfast bar. The paper towels are on the dryer and there is a case of Starbucks White Chocolate Frap on the file cabinet. Those are for Jennifer. The freezer and pantry are full also. I know it sounds like a lot but mom only goes there every 2 or 3 months. Depends on how long that case of toilet paper lasts! There is a really big bag of broccoli in the fridge. Mom just won't give up! She knows I'm not going to eat it but since she is going to make me some chop I have a feeling she will sneak it in there. I'll just eat around it!hahahahaha
It's almost like Spring here today! I feel so bad for all those out east who are having to put up with snow. Wish you could all be here with me!
Mom has never played Bunco. She had a friend who had Bunco parties a couple of times a month but with moms work schedule she could never go. Is it fun???
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big ole hug too!

Smart = akamai (ah-ka-my)
House = hale (ha-lay)
To repeat = hana hou (ha-na- ho)
To go = hele (hey lay)
To come = hele mai (hey-lay my)
To go cruising = holoholo (ho-low-ho-low)
The sea = Kai (ky) the ocean Makai (ma-kai)
Prohibited, taboo, forbidden = Kapu (ka-pooh) to keep out
Child, offspring Keiki (kay-kee)
Teacher Kumu (koo-moo) Hula Teacher Kumu Hula (koo-moo hoo la)

  Hi Sweetpepper
We're having an indoor day today, since it's snowing pretty hard outside now. It's supposed to snow between now and tomorrow and dump a few inches. The weather guy said it would be like living in a snow globe, since the snow would come and go like a snow globe getting shaken. So far it's just coming, not going. It's not laying on the road yet, but the grass and trees are covered. Mom and the dogs got all snow covered when they walked this morning.
The weather gives mom a perfect excuse to stay inside, get caught up with laundry, mostly sheets and towels, read, and of course, listen to the music she loves. Today it's all opera, all day! We will be sure to get lots of attention as well. There's really nothing else to report, so I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of well deserved attention, cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Just can't get a break! This is suppose to be in the low 70's and NO rain as it's the dry season. The plants are getting too much water and not good. It's just cold (60's), wet and windy ...brrrr. I just want some nice days when my aunt and uncle are here. They are getting out of the snow and want to swim in my pool, hope so.
Another sunny day of 67 for us. At least we don't have snow or rain! Hope it gets better every day.

  Hi SweetPepper,
Sorry my blog is late, mom was tired when she came home from work and took a birdie nap.

I think the older hoomans get the more sleep they need. Shish!!

Anywho, today we will learn some words that if you come to Hawaii you will definitely need to know.

For example the restrooms have hydro glyphics and only says Kane (Ka ne) male or Wahine (wa-hee-nay) female. That's where a lot of tourists shake their heads trying to figure out which is which.

Also if you hear the word pupule (pooh-poo-lay) that means crazy; insane. Most common use is crazy.

Here's a nice phrase called Pehea 'oe? (Pay-hay-ya oy) (oy as in toy) meaning how are you?

A lot of us has to do this every week or get the trash out. 'Opala (oh-pa-la). Yes every week we hafta take the 'Opala out. :)

Here's a good one I think everyone will like. 'Ono (oh-no) meaning delicious, tasty. Most common use delicious, as in taste of food. :)

This one everyone had some of. It's called 'ohana (oh-ha-na) or family.

This one refers to my Angel frother Pookie. He was very niele (née-eh-lay) meaning curious, inquisitive, a busy body or nosy person or bird. Hehehe

This one we all say to each other. Malama pono (ma-la-ma po-no) meaning be careful, take care , or to care for. Most common use: Take care. :)

Hope you all have a fun time pronunciating Hawaiian phrases or words.

Soon everyone will be speaking Hawaiian.

Malama pono! :)

A Hui ho (ah who-ee ho) until we meet again or see you later.

WE SURE WERE HAPPY THAT PEYTON AND THE BRONCOS WON LAST NIGHT. THEY SHOWED HIS BROTHER ELI, AND THE EXPRESSION ON HIS FACE, OR LACK THEREOF, WHEN THE GAME WAS OVER WAS HILARIOUS. LOOKED LIKE HE DID NOT WANT TO BE TIED WITH TWO SUPERBOWL WINS WITH PEYTON. EVERYBODY WAS HAPPY AND THEIR FACES SHOWED IT, BUT ELI'S WAS DEADPAN. MOM LAUGHED UP STORM OVER THAT ONE. WE WERE SURE HE WAS HAPPY FOR HIM.

SNOWED HERE TODAY. THEY SAID LESS THAN AN INCH. HECK. WE ENDED UP OFFICIALLY WITH 3.5 INCHES. IT WAS VERY LIGHT AND FLUFFY, THOUGH. GRANDPA USED THE SNOW PLOW ON THE DRIVE AND WALK, AND THEN DID THE WALK FOR THE TWO NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS. OF COURSE, IT SNOWED AFTER HE FINISHED--GUESS THE BAND OF SNOW STALLED OVER OUR AREA. MOM WENT OVER TO SHOVEL THE STUFF THAT FELL, AND THEN USE THE ICE MELT ON THE DRIVEWAY AND ON THE WALK. SHE ALSO PICKED UP A PAPER FOR HIM SO HE DID NOT HAVE TO GO OUT. THEN SHE CAME HOME AND DID SOME LAUNDRY. NICE LAZY DAY ONCE SHE GOT HOME.

HOPE YOU DID NOT GET HIT WITH ANY SNOW, AND LOOKS LIKE WE ARE GONNA BE COLD AGAIN FOR MAYBE A WEEK. SIGH. SPRING NEEDS TO COME!

McKenzie still has to take the mange medicine for another month even though the mites are dead. She got her last shot also. Mom had planned on taking her to Petco after the vet visit but the spots where they did the scrapings to check the mange was bleeding so mom didn't want to take her around other pets and people. She is not contagious but the spots she has makes people nervous. We have to wait for her obedience classes because of that and she can not be spayed until it's cleared up since anesthesia can cause stress and put us back to the beginning with the mange! Since she is now on her 3rd month of meds, we don't want to go backwards!
This is moms last night of vacation! Bummer!! We had a nice time but sure do wish it could have lasted longer!
I hope your evening is perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweetpepper
Thanks for the idea of checking with Barnes and Noble for the birdtalk annual.
Today started out ok but by afternoon it was really cloudy and the rain came. That is ok but its suppose to turn into snow and we might get 1-3” if the weather guesser guesses right LOL. Its suppose to get lots colder too. The two grands that are the same age were both home from school sick today. Sounds like a touch of the flu for both of them and they haven’t even been around each other. I was sitting with mom on the back of the couch for a long time this evening. Mom decided it was time to take a potty break so she sat me on the wastebasket. Well mom threw a pie pan in the wastebasket and all that shiny stuff I wouldn’t co operate. I got tired of sitting there and flew back to my condo. I don’t know why the humans throw scary things in the waste basket like that! “My heart smiles just thinking of you.“ Leaving a vote for you my friend~~Gus (RIP Chi chi)

SO WHERE DOES YOUR MOM'S BUNCO GROUP HAVE THEIR GAMES? MOM'S OLD GROUP HAD IT AT THE HOSTESS'S HOUSE, AND THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS MOM DIDN'T WANT TO DO IT ANYMORE. DAD GOT SICK AND SHE DIDN'T WANT PEOPLE IN HERE BOTHERING HIM. NEVER KNOW WHEN HIS KIDNEYS MIGHT FAIL ON HIM. PLUS HAVING TO COME UP WITH PRIZES INSTEAD OF WINNING CASH GOT TO BE A PAIN.

WE ARE REALLY WARM HERE TODAY WITH A HIGH OF 80, BUT THE WIND IS REALLY BLOWING WITH GUSTS FROM 25-40 MPH. SO ANOTHER DAY WITH LOTS OF SUN, BUT I CAN'T GET OUTSIDE. I AM SPENDING A LOT OF TIME ON MY WINDOW SILL.

MOM WENT TO THE GYM THIS MORNING THEN ON THE WAY HOME TRIED TO PICK UP A SCRIPT, BUT THE SECONDARY INSURANCE WASN'T RIGHT. MOM NEEDED THE NEW CARD, AND SHE TOTALLY FORGOT SHE PUT IT IN HER PURSE WHEN SHE SAW THE GI DOC LAST WEEK. SO RATHER THAN PAY $92 FOR THE MED, SHE TOLD THEM SHE WOULD COME BACK WITH THE CARD TOMORROW. WHEN SHE GOT HOME AND DAD REMINDED HER SHE HAD THE CARD WITH HER, SHE WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HERSELF AT ALL.

THE VOTING IS COMING RIGHT ALONG, BUT WE COULD STILL USE MORE BIRDIES VOTING. WEIRD, BUT NOT ALL THE BIRDIES WHO HAVE PICS ENTERED ARE VOTING. I DON'T GET THAT AT ALL, DO YOU?

PEYTON MANNING SURE IS A CLASS ACT, AND HE WAS SUCH A GRACIOUS WINNER. IN MOM'S OPINION HE IS THE BEST QB EVER, BUT I GUESS ONLY TIME WILL TELL. 200 CAREER WINS SURE SAYS A LOT, AND NOW I AM HOPING HE WILL EITHER COACH OR BECOME A SPORTS CASTER. HE HAS THE PERSONALITY FOR TV, SO THAT WOULD BE REALLY GOOD. MOM WOULD MAKE A POINT OF WATCHING HIM, AND I BET A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE WOULD TOO.

YOUR PEYTON FAN HUSBIRD,
KIDDO

  Hi Sweetpepper
The boys are leaving a vote for Kacey too.
Happy Chinese New Year Everybirdie! It's the Year of the Monkey, I wonder if that gives us all a chance to act like monkeys all year long? Congratulations to the Broncos, too. We didn't watch the game, but Lady Gaga did one great job with the National Anthem, and Beyonce did a fine halftime show. We tuned in to that to see Santana play a little.
Mom finished the Pterosaur book, watched the videos from the AMNH website, watched the Puppy Bowl, and even turned on the Fish Bowl for a few minutes.
Mom cleaned the mammal nursery today, with 3 squirrels and 2 possums, all adults. None of them was ready to go outside yet, though, they each need some extra care. The little flying squirrel has a stash of around 2 pounds of nuts that she's keeping in a pillowcase in her cage. Everyone is letting her keep them. We think when she gets released, she'll have a stash to start with in the spring.
Someone brought in a fennec fox! These guys are desert foxes who live in the Sahara. He said he found it on his back porch, didn't know what it was, and brought it to us. The poor little thing is emaciated and dehydrated, as well as blind in one eye. They are keeping him in the treatment room for now and trying to bulk him up a little. If he survives, we think he'll be going to the zoo or to some kind of sanctuary. It makes mom so angry when people take wild animals and try to make them pets. There are enough dogs, cats, and other animals who make good pets already.
It's supposed to snow here tonight through Wednesday, but we'll see what happens. Those guys are wrong probably more than they are right. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Congrats to Peyton Manning and the Broncos, they are the World Champions, that Newton fellow was sure not very gracious in the loss, he didn't look all that hot to us, after all the hype about how good he was!

Have a great day and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

I'm wearing a fuzzy robe over my swimsuit and socks with my flip flops. I'm still waiting for normal temps to return ... they have been gone for a good 4 weeks!
Dad wanted the broncos to win too. Mom & I watched the commercials :(
Today was another cool sunny day. Looks like we will be in the high 60's to low 70's starting Thursday ... if they don't change it again!
Well, it's that time again for the Milonga Derby Jockey Lottery. You can sign up on the Derby Farms page #275677 during the month of February. The rules are posted, look for my blog.

WONDER IF THEY COULD GIVE THE ENTIRE DENVER DEFENSE THE MVP? THEY SURE DID WIN THAT GAME FOR DENVER. SURE AS HECK PRAYS HE RETIRES AND DOESN'T GET THE URGE TO PLAY MORE AND GET HURT. SO HAPPY FOR HIM AND THE BRONCOS. MOM TRIED TO WATCH ANY AND ALL GAMES THAT WERE ON, AND AFTER THEY ANNIHILATED THE PACK AND CREMATED THE PATS, SHE FIGURED THEY WOULD WIN, AND THEY DID.

MOM WATCHED THE FIRST HALF OF THE GAME AT GRANDPA'S AND THEN CAME HOME. I AM SO HAPPY. I ATE SO GOOD TODAY--HAD BISON SLOPPY JOES AND SOME CHICKEN FROM MOM WHEN SHE GOT HOME. OF COURSE, I HAD MY MATOES AND PEAS AND CARROT, TOO. NOTHING BETTER THAN A FULL CROP, UNLESS IT IS MOM!

MOM HAS WASH AND WEAR HAIR TOO--SHE WASHES IT, PUTS IN SOME HAIR GEL, AND LETS IT DRY, THEN MESSES IT UP SO IT GETS FULL. SHE USED TO DO THE WHOLE WORKS, BLOW DRY AND CURLING IRON. SHE HASN'T IN AGES. AND NOW, SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO DO MUCH!

Just a quick note tonight, mom is watching the Superbowl game. She would like to see the Broncos win, would like to see Peyton Manning go out on top!

Change of plans, mom & Liv aren't starting the crystals until Tuesday. Sis called this morning, Liv has pink eye, she's the last one in her family to get it! Mom wants to wait a couple days because her eye is swollen shut! I sure hope mom doesn't get it!

I hope your day was a good one!

Yes we love the picture Aunt Gail did for us too! Mom started using the blow dryer on me when I was a baby so I am used to it and like it.
Does anyone know if the bird talk annual is out yet this year or will it even be published this year? Mom has been looking for it at our grocery store but they have changed things around a lot there so they might not even get them in either. Tonight when I went in with mom while she took her bath I made the beeping noise of the smoke alarm and even had the beeps just right too. I didn’t fool mom though cause she seen my beak making the noise LOL. Its hard to fool a mom. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello SweetPepper~
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! We are preparing for the Puppy Bowl. Mom, McKenzie and I checked out the line up and have picked a few favorites. I think I'm going the cheer for the Ruff team! The Fluff team is cute too! Hard to pick sides when there are that many cute puppies! I think it is just awesome that they find forever homes for all these dogs!!
Not much else going on for today. Mom has been filing all the papers we went through this week and put all of dad's mail into a box so he can go through it when he gets home.
How long is your grandpa going to be gone skiing? I bet he has the best time when he's out there. Mom tried once but she kept crossing the skis and falling down! Wasn't much fun for her!
Jennifer came home a little while ago so she'll be here for the Puppy Bowl party too!
Enjoy your day and I hope you get to have a party too ~ Puppy Bowl or Super Bowl or just because it's Sunday!

I KNOW YOUR MOM FEELS BADLY ABOUT DOMINGO'S PIC. IT'S WEIRD, BECAUSE MOM WENT THRU THEM AFTER THEY WERE LOADED AND SHE DIDN'T NOTICE IT WAS MISSING EITHER. WHEN MOM LOADED THE PICS FOR LAST MONTH'S MILONGA SOMEHOW HULK'S DOG SLED PIC GOT LOADED TWICE, AND SHE COULD NOT DELETE IT. JUST ANOTHER PECULIAR QUIRK ON BC. HOPEFULLY PUTTING UP THE NOTICE ABOUT DOMINGO AND LISTING HIS PAGE # AFTER HIS NAME WILL HELP HIM GET VOTES. HE DOES HAVE TWO AS OF YESTERDAY.

MOM WILL BE WATCHING THE SUPERBOWL ALONE, SINCE DAD IS NOT A FAN OF FOOTBALL AND I CAN'T BEHAVE IN HER BEDROOM WHEN IT IS DAYLIGHT. DAD IS WATCHING A SEASON 10 MARATHON OF THE BEST OF SUPERNATURAL. HE HAS SEEN ALL THE EPISODES THRU SEASON 9 SINCE HE HAS BEEN HOME ON MEDICAL LEAVE; THE SYNDICATED VERSION IS ON A LOCAL CABLE CHANNEL WHICH IS NOW RUNNING THIS MARATHON. MOM HAS NEVER REALLY WATCHED THE SHOW, SO SHE IS SKIPPING IT.

ANY WORD ON HOW G-PA IS ENJOYING HIS SKI TRIP? HOPE ALL IS WELL. I GUESS NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS, SINCE THEY WOULD ONLY CALL IF HE GOT HURT OR SICK.

  Hi SweetPepper,
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

Love,

Laka Aolani, Candidate for BOTM

  Hi Sweetpepper
We understand about hurting backs. Don't worry about it, Willie and Peppino will leave a note for Kacey to let her know they are thinking about her. We haven't decided about the Super Bowl yet, mom likes the Panthers and the Broncos.
We now have images of pterosaurs on all of our pages. Mom tried to photograph the book on Pterosaurs, but it's shiny and that didn't work well. We got some images from the AMNH website to show everyone, and if you want to look it up for yourselves, this page shows a lot of what's in the exhibit and the book. We're just teasing you with a few images. You can go to AMNH.org/pterosaurs and see for yourself lots of what's on display. There have been about 150 different species of pterosaur fossils found, ranging in size from ones that will fit in your hand to Quetzlcoatlus northropi, which has a wing span about the length of a city bus and weighed between 180-250 kilograms! That's 550 lbs. at its heaviest. He stood about the height of a giraffe.
You might be able to access some of the short movies that are being shown, too. One big thing to remember is that they are NOT dinosaurs. They, like crocodiles and dinosaurs, all belong to the archosaur family, but they are cousins, at best. One of the things mom loved seeing is that they all had a fine hairy coating, probably to keep them warm.
I hope everyone wasn't bored by that, mom is finding them very interesting. Don't forget to vote in the milonga contest today and every day. I hope you are having a sunny day today. We are, and the temps are already in the 40s, but we know the cold is coming back soon. Make sure you get lots of attention today! Lots of cuddles and scritches should be coming your way.

  Super Sunday to you Ms SweetPepper-from your Jenny
...we will be dialed into the big game, but our hearts won't be in it! How is our dear aunt Teri, we haven't heard about her doctors exam of the other day! Today is Superbowl Sunday, traditionally a very fun day, but not so much this year! Dad went to the store to pick up our supplies so as to have it out of the way, he even bought a bucket of hot wings/honey wings and potato salad, yummo, we'll be getting some of that stuff! Dad has been invited to many of his friend's SB parties, but told them all he would rather just stay home with all of us! We will cheer for the Broncos and Peyton Manning, for whatever good that will do! Don't forget the puppy bowl on Animal Planet! Thank you Mary Haines for the lovely Valentine card, you have to stop being so sweet to us! Have a great day dear BC bowl friends, and give our love to all in your party home, see ya all tomorrow...

My dad is golfing in the morning. Then he will be home to watch the superbowl. Mom & I will watch the commercials. We might have another couple over.
At least we saw sun this morning. In the afternoon, the rain started and hasn't stopped yet! I'm still waiting around wearing my swimsuit and flip flops. Looks like one more week of low 60's ....brrrrrr. The only eggciting thing we saw today was a cute brown bunny eating our lawn.

  Hi SweetPepper,
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

Thank you for you votes and support.
