Feathered Frenzy: Bird Brains: They’re Bigger Than You Think!

Zack & Bubbs 4-2018Sherri’s latest Feathered Frenzy article delves into the intelligence and perceptiveness of our parrot companions.

When someone says ‘bird brain’, they are actually describing a sentient being that can, and does, interact and react to their human and environmental surroundings in a way that is very similar to humans.

Sherri describes how Zack and Bubbles continually surprise and reassure her that they understand hers and hubby Rick’s struggles with life’s challenges – both in and outside the house.

Sherri’s article is a must-read for everyone living with a feathered companion.

For all of us enamored with our feathered companions, take a look around, you’ll be amazed at how our feathered friends inspire us in art, dress, color choices, fashion, and home décor.

Sherri also wants to wish her U.S. readers a safe and happy 4th of July, and readers everywhere a wonderful July!

Alert: Sick Human!

bubbles 7-4-16In our April issue, Sherri reminds all who share their home and life with birds that when we get sick, our birds react in different, and often negative ways to our illness.  Sherri experienced a very nasty bout with two viruses over a few weeks and as she recuperated, Sherri took notice of how her illness affected Bubbles in a more direct and somewhat serious way.  Zack on the other hand was attuned such human frailties and takes moms sicknesses in relatively good stride.

While diseases are rarely shared with humans, birds can definitely share nasty bugs with us!  Read Sherri’s Feathered Frenzy article here.

IMG_20190303_152958In his latest column, Morty sends off  some interesting advice to a frantic Sherri. Sherri’s still dealing with her own Alexa issues.  Morty, in his usual offbeat wisdom, also tries to pawn off one of his own technological nemesis while passing along support and suggestions to Sherri.

I Had Secrets

Sherri - March issueIn Sherri’s latest submission, she finds herself wondering the extent to which Alexa (or possibly Skynet itself) knows all her secrets.  With her tablet mysteriously booting up and files being moved about, Sherri suspects that all this nefarious business is at the behest, or the invisible hand, of Alexa.

But perhaps even worse, Alexa may be using Sherri’s own secrets, secrets only Bubbles and Zack know, to tailor search results and lead her down murky web paths.

Find out how Sherri has managed to curtail Alexa’s nasty behavior (or not), and whether she can contain Alexa’s spewing of secrets onto social media here.
