What is she saying?

Kazoo is a 16-year-old Double Yellow Headed Amazon parrot. She talks. We don’t always know what she’s saying exactly, but we always know what she means because she’s remarkably expressive.

Take a look at this video and see if you can tell what she’s yelling at the 7-second, 27-second and 37-second marks. This is something she […]

Something to warm your heart

You may have already seen this, since it’s making the rounds, but I’m sharing it just in case. Besides, I’ve watched it a bunch of times and I’m not tired of it yet.

This little Brazilian guy is almost two years old.

Two new birds!

Well, they’re not NEW, exactly. The original lovebirds – Oboe’s parents, Billie and Lester – have moved from GC’s house to mine.

It’s really nice to have them here, and they’re adapting very well. At first they squawked like crazy, and their arrival happened to coincide with the arrival of new next door neighbours, so […]

A day in the life

This is what my day looks like so far:

9:00-12:00 – all-staff meeting at work to do a SWOT analysis of the organization (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats)

2:00-3:30 – Conference Call

3:30 – meeting with funder

5:30-6:30 – House of Commons to watch Bill C-279 being debated. That’s the private member’s bill to amend the […]

An apple gadget infomercial with GC, Duncan and Simon

GC made an apple pie a couple of weeks ago, and being the clever guy he is, he went gadget-shopping first. Then we prepared our very own infomercial, complete with cameo appearances by some of our animal friends. (My favourite part is the last five seconds.)

Incidentally, since making this video we’ve discovered that you can […]

Only Pets

I still watch the Birds for Sale category on Kijiji, just in case. (In case of what, I’m not really sure. The last thing I need is another bird.) Last night we went to Critter Jungle for dog food, and of course I stopped by the bird section to say hello. Two birds – a […]


I just wanted to share this with all of you. My friend Gwen sent it to me, and it’s awesome. Look for the baby at 2.38.

The family that showers together...

Here’s a video of Kazoo, Simon, Oboe, Duncan, Logan and me happily sharing a shower on a hot day.

Wet and wild shower scene (rated xox)

We all love Kazoo’s showers.

From Youtube to you

It’s too hot to think, so I’m just sharing a few videos I’ve seen lately. I hope you like them.

This one’s short and spectacular:

This one is a quick clip of 100 people, in order of age, from one to 100.

The giggling quadruplets have been around for awhile, but I still love them.

This one’s been around […]
