Bob the Parrot tells all

June 24, 2008

1. The reason I don’t talk on the show is because it would be too intellectual for Joey to understand. Let’s not forget who the birdbrain is here!

2. I have a girlfriend in Costa Rica (she’s a cockatoo). Her mom feels we are too young to fly the coop however.

3. Joey makes me wear these flowered shirts – Do you really think that I would dress this way if i dressed myself.

4. Joey says I drink too much. Personally, after dealing with him, I don’t think I drink enough!

5. Some of you might not know it but I am running for President on the birdbrain ticket. “VOTE FOR BOB”

6. I’ve heard people say “How can you work with that dumb bird?” Really, Joey isn’t that bad of guy!

7. Yes I do smoke. Its a vice, get over it! Besides Capt. Ron is directly responsible for all of my vices. You want to point a finger at someone? I suggest behind the director’s door.

It’s officially hurricane season

June 3, 2008

Has it been a year already?!  The official start of the hurricane season was Monday after National Hurricane Preparedness week, May 25 – 31st.

Here are planning tips from NOAA:

Discuss the type of hazards that could affect your family. Know your home’s vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind.
Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain circumstances the safest areas may not be your home but within your community.
Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet.
Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members have a single point of contact.
Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate.
  Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and when to call 911.
  Check your insurance coverage – flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance. National Flood Insurance Program
Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a Disaster Supply Kit.
Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember to replace its battery every 6 months, as you do with your smoke detectors.
