I enjoy kick back days every once and a while

well I was enjoying a kick back day and having fun taking pictures of the feathered kids . These pictures feature Alex , Martin (blue ) and Arnold sitting next to Martin on top of their cage . These guys are a hoot and fill my day with fun . Yes I was just talking the other day about how Alex was biting well I think I have cured that because I have not had a nip in a few days . Which I am begging to last if not then we start the retraining all over again . If my dear Limner is reading , I hope you are feeling much better my dear and as well as Simon and the Husband .

Take care all and stay cool as Im sure most of us are having a heat wave .

Is this the week for being bitten ?

Well I will tell you this must have been the week for bites because I just read where my good friend the Limner has said that her cat is sick and please pray for him because he just had surgery . He is home but still sick . She said that he had bitten her while she touched him with his wound . Well yesterday while messing with Alex (my new quaker ) he delivered three bites to my left hand and my right hand and my arm . Yesterday they looked nasty today they look better . I would show you pics but Im too lazy to take pics of it . Anyways he was in a foul mood and I must have pushed the issue and he is not happy today either and has been in his cage for most of the day which means Im not happy with you and you are going to be punished in bird language . So I had other things to do today and he got left alone for most of the day . My other two quakers are perfectly fine being left alone by me cause they have each other . I guess whenever Alex gets over his temper tantrum and fit or whatever you call it he will be more receptive to me , we shall see . I have had such a week and now I find out my carpet steam cleaner is dead and they will not give me my money back on that ...I will tell you more in my next blog about that ......

still battleing the bronchitis

Well as some of you know I have been battle-ing the bronchitis and it is still not any better with a whole round of anti biotics and still no improvement . So wednesday I head back to the doctor because I am assuming that I wont be any better and that I have some kind of super bronchitis that will not give up unless it has another round of anti biotics . So everyone please do everyone else a favor and teach your kids to cover their mouths with tissues when they cough especially if they have bronchitis and yes belive it or not bronchitis is air borne and when the affected person coughs or sneezes the germs are put into the air and all you have to do is breathe to become infected . So let us all wash our hands and stay home when anyone is sick . I have become a mad woman while washing my hands . So everyone , please pray for me if you are the praying sort if not then send out good wishes and here s to hoping that the next round of antibiotics does the trick .

Things usually turn out for the best

Well as some of you might or might not know I was planning on getting a cockatoo that needed a home . That however did not work out as such his owner turned out to be somewhat of a "off " person shall we say . She took offense to an email I had sent her wanting to know when the bird would be arriving and I was telling her about someone else who had wanted a certain amount of money from me and how I did not think that was fair . Well she proceeded to call me up and demand that I let her finish her rant and she was fairly nasty about it . And it is like my husband said "I wonder if she even had the bird to begin with " . What really tipped me off in the background was that I never heard the bird which she claimed to be really loud and from what others have told me that was a pretty good sign that she did not have the bird . Well this woman proceeded to tell me that I had ulterior motives for wanting the bird . Well I was not going to banty words with this woman so when she finished I ended the call with a wow , okay bye bye and hung up . Well a few mins afterwards I was looking at the website that I fairly go to and some lady was looking for a home for her quaker saying that they are army and they go from place to place alot and not fair to this bird . So she and I talked and I picked him up on saturday from the airport and he talks and he is in my home and which is now his home . so the motto to this story is things really do turn out for the best in many sittuations .

The end of our space shuttle program

I just watched the space shuttle go up and it will most likely be the last one I will see . I think it is a travesity and an injustice to the memory of our late presiden John F. Kennedy . He was the one that said by 1969 we will have a man on the moon and we did . But alas today marks the last of the space shuttle take offs and for me an end of a dynasty . What a shame it will be for our grandchildren to never see a space shuttle go into space . I think space is a frontier that we have only begun to discover and should do more to explore it . I think our government is giving up on space exploration and that is sad indeed . We used to be one of the richest countrys in the world and look now we are the laughing stock of the world . Now I heard this morning that most schools in Illnois are ending penmanship classes . Well my goodness what will happen to these children when they go to get their drivers license they wont be able to sign their name in cursive . Of course kids want things that are easier , but I think ending cursive writing is stupid to say the least . Your signature is one of ones identifying factors and yet the illnois school system chooses to take that away . Disgraceful if you ask me ... Just my humble opinion of course .

I have heard alot of mess when going through airports but really ? Really ?

When will we as type 1 diabetics be able to go through an airport without a problem ? I have heard alot about t1s having problems at airports lately . I guess in retrospect this makes me awfully glad I dont wear a pump but feel for t1s that do and I cannot understand why the TSA would question a medical device ? I have to carry syringes since I dont use a pump and am constantly asked when traveling why I have syringes . I also have a very bright medical alert bracelet clearly stating that I am an insulin dependant diabetic . So from my understanding the TSA is not training their people correctly in recognizing medical devices , clearly stated medical alert bracelets and drs notes , have I got that down now ? Is that correct that the TSA does not train their people to notice or recognize these things ? I also think that we as T1 diabetics should sit down with some TSA agents and the head of the TSA on the Dr. Phil show and educate these people as to how we want to be treated and how we should be treated at all airports , with respect and dignity that you seem to show everyone else but people with medical devices , syringes and insulin !!! I think the TSA need to learn some respect for people with medical conditions . What say the rest of you ? Shout it out and let me know what you think .
