Paddy is our latest addition to our family.  Paddy is a Turquoise Green Cheek Conure.  He was born on March 17th 2010.


Paddy is an amazing bird, in that he is very well socialized, and enjoys our company.  He likes to cuddle and play.

He is DNA Tested, and confirmed to be male.  Typical of Green Cheek conures, he is not very loud.  Infact I would say he is about on par to the parakeets for sound volume, but the parakeets are actually more vocal then he is.  Paddy will say hello, but it is hard to distinguish.  He has a very raspy voice.

Global Warming Redux

I believe I have written about this before, however I think I need to re-hash this.

I heard some unknown scientist today talking on NPR about how President Obama should be using this Oil Spill in the Gulf to condem the oil industry and say hey, this may be a disaster, but it is also a similar disaster to use the same oil to pollute the air in our cars.

The Red Cross Trains Taliban

Lately it has come to the attention of the media that the Red Cross has been not only treating the wounded in Afghanistan, but also training the Taliban in survival and first aid skills, as well as supplying them with the equipment to do so.  While the goal of the Red Cross is to remain as neutral as possible, it admits that this is a unique situation.

Regardless of the situation however, many believe that the act of giving the Taliban gear and equipment crosses the line.  Jerry Agar of Toronto's Newstalk 1010 argues that this is a kin to equipting the enemy for battle.
