I originally came to Japan in 1983 to work on the Fujitsu Pavilion for the 1985 (Showa 60) Tsukuba Expo. Today I got this nice birthday present – a commemorative set of coins from the Japanese mint produced that year for Expo ’85. Cool!
Monta seems a bit out of sorts this morning. He’s sort of cranky. Actually, he hasn’t been his usual self for a while now. His beak and around his eyes are still vivid red, so I don’t think there is anything specifically wrong with him, other than that he is getting old. When he flies he often loses strength and decides to land on the floor, where he’ll hop into my hand. Also, he spends a lot of time on the perch near the cage door, rather than on his swing. I’m a bit worried, but he still has his appetite and likes being snuggled, so I don’t think there is anything in particular I can do about it.
The post below was removed from the Facebook “McDougall’s Starch Solution Group”. I’m surprised, because there were many supportive, informative comments in response to my post. The comments were useful, and no arguments were taking place. Many people are going through the same problems I experienced, and it seems short-sighted to try to cover that up.
Because the post was removed, I have left the group and am continuing my search for a workable diet. There were useful suggestions after my post and I did want to read them again. The messages about Chef AJ were particularly interesting. I hope the original poster gets back to me by private message so I can get more information. In the meanwhile, here is the which was deleted from the group.
