Have a good trip, Patricia! I hope you can stay out of trouble!

Patricia...I just sent you an the whole thing, and when you stop laughing, try to be like Dallen for the weekend.  Or let Rick do it for you.

Good luck, Patricia. A comment from Christopher Hitchens to bolster you on your way:


I try to deny myself any illusions or delusions, and I think this perhaps entitles me to try and deny the same to others, at least as long as they refuse to keep their fantasies to themselves.

I loved Alex, Dr. Irene Pepperberg's African grey parrot. He knew what he was talking about! I was so sad when he died.  I haven't checked her web site lately to see what she's doing now.

I like the river dance bird.  I think it's dancing to the music because it's obvious that a lot of that type of bird dances to music.

Coincidently, I just read a book about exotic birds: The Birds of Pandemonium (Life Among the Exotic and the Endangered). The author (Michele Raffin) started with one injured bird, and before long, she was housing a sanctuary (N. Calif). Birds aren't as dumb as we think.

That's a beautiful tap dance! I wonder if the bird does this spontaneously or because of the music?

I think that's an African lovebird.  We had one for a few years when I was in jr. high....Dad adopted her from a neighbor who had to get rid of her because she was nutso.  Kept shredding paper and building nests, and would occasionally lay an egg, but had no mate. Dad wanted to see if he could get a mate for her and breed her.  (He did, and she pitched a fit, and killed the boy.)

Dad was a parrot fan...he grew up with a South American green parrot who could mimic my grandmother's voice perfectly.  When he was in college he lived with his aunt, and she had a mynah who was a VERY silly talker.  Both those birds were long gone by the time I was born.

Anyway, I don't remember what happened to Doc, the African bird, but we also had budgies from time to time, and one of them learned to say quite a few things.

Loren's correct, both in the ethanol and the athleticism. And remember, Helio Castroneves won the "Dancing With Stars" several years ago. Heavy on the pedal, light afoot.
Indiana has a very large population of Amish/German Baptists, etc. We call them "Old Orders" around my area. Really, they're quite friendly, so I won't put them down.

On the second viewing, Amish road rage still brings a chuckle.
