Random Entertainment For The Week 2/21

My father loved Peggy Lee's music. I have his record collection. Yes, flat, black and vinyl. I even have a honest to golly turn table from back in the day. Guess what I did this afternoon?

Geezer-dork that I am.

This was one of Dad's favorite songs.

Islet Transplant Article on Diabetes Health

Diabetes Health has an article about the Chicago Diabetes Project and islet transplantation. Excellent article but then I might be biased.

Cause, yeah, I heart my islets and the transplant team at UIC.

They're the bomb diggity.

You can find the article here,

More bird news.

My birds are still all sick. Well, two out of three are sick and the fourth one is dead. Dr. Vet man says what ever they have they got from me (or more likely, from Moe since she was the one with the sinusy gunk last month), cause birds don't get gram positive type bacterias unless they get them from humans. Anyway, I feel bad that they're sick and angry with me for torturing them with antibiotics. Green Bean seems to like Cipro but judging from their reactions, the Budgies think it tastes something akin to ass. Butter quite literally spit it in my eye tonight, and while I stumbled around trying to get the sticky stingy pink gunk out of my eyeball, he flew around the house bitching at me like, well, the angry, crazed parakeet that he was. I can't blame him. I'd be angry too and quite frankly if he's healthy enough to put up that much of a fight. Go him!
Hopefully, when I take the birds back to the vet next week for a recheck they'll be all good. I hope so, cause at $165 a visit I can't afford to keep taking them every other week.


I love my avain vet. He's awesome, and worth every penny.

Can I add the birds onto my work benefits?

"Really Dr Vet man, they're on my family plan, prescriptions covered too..."


dream on.

oh and since I haven't said it in ages


my blood sugars are still all normal like.

Sad, Sick and, well, sleepy.

Just as Green Bean started getting better the other birds started getting worse. Marble, my youngest budgie died on Sunday with out any indication of having been sick. Sky, who shares a cage with Marble seems fine but Butter is having a rough time recovering from what ever is ailing my feathered friends. Needless to say the birds are all on a 2nd round of antibiotics and Marble is, well, in the deep freeze otherwise known as my deck box, cause how do you bury a bird when you can't get to the ground much less dig it up? Pray for cold weather until I can figure out what to do with him.


Poor Marble. He was never quite right, but that's a story for another time.

I'm sleepy, and I'm heading off to bed.

One of these day's I'll be online for more then 30 minutes.
