Welp folks, I finally created the word I was looking for and it is FLONTAGE. Flontage is a verb and it represents the finger action that contestants on shows like American Idol or Dancing With the Stars do during voting ceremonies. This picture shows Sanjayah flontaging. He wants the American public to vote for him and his voting number ends in four. Instead of holding up four fingers, Sanjaya flontages. He uses two fingers on both hands to represent four...two plus two equals four. He probably flipped his fingers back and fourth and may have even done a dance in which he took the twos and held them to his eyes kind of like how John Travolta danced in Pulp Fiction.

Please note this word was created and is trademarked by me, but you can use it as often as you'd like.

Good day,

Stuff is Tuff

Young, Hand-fed, Tame, Male, Blue & Gold Macaw needs new home. He comes with his DNA sexing certificate (paid $50.00), California Cage with Playtop-largest made (paid $900.00), his manzanita stand on wheels (paid $60.00), a rope perch (paid $35.00) for use inside or outside the cage, his shower perch(paid $35.00), his toys (paid over $150.00)of which there are many, and a half bag (20 lbs.) of Kaytee Exact Macaw food plus food treats. I will not split this up, it all goes as one package because I want him to have the as much of the life he is used to and things he is comfortable with so the change will be as non-stressful as possible. He will come with a list of phrases and tricks. Please realize this is a huge investment and my rehoming fee will reflect this.

He is a very social bird and needs a lot of time. He says about 25 phrases (no 4 letter words!) plays games (Peek-a-Boo and "Up-Down-Left-Right"), dances when you sing or play music for him, waves to you by picking up his foot and curling and uncurling his toes several times in rapid succession, does a high five, loves to go anywhere and especially on car rides (on the passenger seat back or passenger head rest). He loves to be petted on his head, neck, upper back, under his wings, and can lay in your arms like a baby for a tummy rub. He will eat whatever you eat and can use a spoon to eat.

I am asking a rehoming fee (somewhat negotiable), expect a visit from a prospective owner to meet him, and will then do a home check. I want the best home for him and am dedicated to finding that home. Anyone looking to breed, have several other large birds, or are not experienced with large birds need not apply

Spring Art and Kite Show

I know that many of you are busy but I am going to extend an invitation out to my newest art reception at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center on Saturday. This exhibition is a collaborative venture and includes the works of many local artists, everything from wood carvings to silk flower arranging. I will be showing my latest series of sand art inspired by Island Time. If you get the urge please come and join the good people that are participating in this event. We will be having cookies and punch after the art show to celebrate Allen Johnston's kite flying competition, exciting for sure.

Green With Envy?

There have been many exciting things happening to Aimers this month, but none that can compare to what happened to me in the last two days. Around 4:00 today I was notified that I'd won a raffle. Here at the office we are doing our part in going green. With Earth Day quickly approaching the Go Green Team is raffling many useful items that, help us, help our environment. Each day this week a raffle prize winner is determined, and, as you can see by the name was chosen. To my surprise I won a bicycle helmet AND water bottle, both green (get it?). It's really funny because I'm always the one that's all "I never win anything", and now here I am WINNING a bicycle helmet and a bird show in the very same week.

I'm overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude for my good fortune.
Have a great evening.



Good News folks, Nipperkin won the first place Blue Ribbon honor at the Avian Exhibition in Milpitas, CA this weekend. In honor of his victory Nipperkin was rewarded with a 20 lb bag of bird seed (the good kind) and a salt chew. What the judges don't know is that Nipperkin is a bad birdy. When we got home he chewed mommy's favorite piece of origami. That dang bird, but how can you stay mad, look at him....he's just beautiful.

Island Time.

I'm on self declared Island Time from now until who knows when, I couldn't tell you because I don't have a watch or a calendar, because I'm so relaxed and nothing bothers me. If you aren't familiar with Island Time you should be. Island Time is all about major chillin' (maxin' and relaxin'). Whether you live near the beach or just visit Blue Gecko on Wednesday nights on the Sacramento River. It's totally, totally, chill. It's all about kickin' it. Island Time means you can always wear flip flops and shorts (24-7). When you think about Island Time, think about Matthew McConaughey ( or your most recent visit to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville ( Are you catchin' my drift; mon? If you are, then you should come check me out this weekend at:

The Beach Hut Deli Jam Sesh
