Sue of course you can! Coco will let anyone hold him but Georgie isn't friendly to anyone but Barb and I've got scars to prove it. That bird loves me as long as I play with her but if I get close enough she goes into attack mode. Her previous owner was a man that was mean to her and kept her in a room by herself with no windows or human interaction but him. We were told he would thump her on her beak and be mean so it's no wonder she is that way to men. Barb has really been working with her to come out but sometimes she bites her too.

Thanks Dave! I often fall asleep early and then awaken for a few hours before going back to sleep. It's comforting to know that you and I are getting it right.

If you haven't gone to Dave's link you are missing something important. I almost passed it up, myself.

Or almonds cultured with Miracle-Gro?
Tic-tacs?

Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades....so I don't think you're that close.

And BTW don't ferget to unplug and store that electric cord before chasin' on down the road. Bonita and Annie will appreciate that.

mmmm, I don't think so. I think it's too big of a leap for mankind to make. There must be more incremental steps. I'm thinking it's more in the realm of communication technology. The Jetson cartoons back in 1962 (can you believe it's been 52 years?) predicted flying cars would happen by now.

I think Star Trek, which debuted in 1966, has gotten some things right We don't tap our communicator badges, we tap our Bluetooth devices to make them work and electronic tablets are making paper and books obsolete. I'd LOVE to have transporters that work like theirs, but my RV is the only transporter I'll ever see. Now holodeck technology, that I could see, but only visual images, not things that are computer generated that feel real.

What ever it is, I'm looking forward to it. But then, I've always been a science geek. I bet Earlene might have some ideas from her time working at NASA. If she can talk about them. I ran into a woman today who said she worked at NASA testing some of the systems that the space program was developing, but she couldn't talk about them. I'm not 100% sure I believe her, but I'm sure NASA has plenty of secrets.

Her former owner apparently cursed a lot and she knows how to say things at the most in opportune time.
Thanks for the welcome and I sure hope we cross paths sometime in the future to see each other and our pals. I had a rescue, Nunzio, for around 8 years, a real basket case at first but he completely turned around and was such a great cuddler/buddy. He wound up crashing on the floor (wings were so chopped up they could never grow back in to slow his falls) and busted his insides up and you know birds, they hide it till it was too late and he passed on from internal injuries (I had a necropsy done). Boko picked up a lot of good whistling lessons from Nunzio and she still goes to town sometimes whistling.

If your Congo and mine got together, geez, they'd never stop yacking

Card catalogs, Dewey Decimal system, 35mm film, view masters, and headlight dimmers on the floor, all gone now mostly, from our everyday existence. The question what will the new technology be? is hand in hand with, what will we soon forget we once had?

Persimmons don't taste like anything I can think of to compare them to. Sweet, and thick mushiness, reminiscent of apricot texture but not flavor. Not like a peach, but if the peach had no tartness, and only sweet, that might approach the flavor. I thought I was the only one who had never tasted one before.
