Shiek Zayed isn't the sharpest tool on the block (he dropped a few
billion in the Bank of Credit and Commerce aka Bank of Crooks and
Criminals fiasco.

As to where Abu Dhabi is, If you look at a map of the Persian Gulf,
down at the bottom, there is a land mass that just out toward Iran
from Saudi Arabia. The souther portion is on the Arabian Sea, the
northern portion is on the Persian Gulf, about halfway out on it is
Abu Dhabi.

Not unless the bird flu makes landfall in the US via *birds*. In all
likelihood, if it comes here it would be transported by humans, not much
point in destroying pet parrots if that happened. If it did, well, the US
has much better control over poultry health then Abu Dhabi, or even Romania
or Turkey, although we wouldn't see free-range for quite some time.

Right now the only way to get is bird->human. Or rather chicken/duck->human.
Frankly, this disease is so scary that a wholesale slaughter of chickens
does not bother me, even pets. Better that then dead humans.

He was attacking some 'tropical' print fabric lying around the house the
other day. I think he misses you!

Well, the taste of your flesh, any ways.

Heh. That reminds me, year ago when I was working at Bird Gardens (before I
met Wes), one of my coworkers bought a fallow green-cheeked conure. After a
couple of months she started bringing him to work, and in that time we
noticed a rather alarming change in his attitude. You see, Paisley loved his
mommy very, very much. And didn't love anyone else (rather like Wes, only
times ten. I can actually hand Wes off to most of my family members without
them bleeding). Well, one day our boss, who surely knew better, walked over
to talk to my coworker. Paisley said 'stepup' to Da Bossman, along with the
begging wing behavior (you know, the 'I want you to pick me up'
wing-shiver), so Bossman stuck his hand out for Paisley to step up.

Of course the little brat promptly tore a chunk out of his finger instead of
stepping up. And then ATE IT, with the most evil little chuckle you can
imagine. Heh. Man Eating Parrot, that.

And people say that parrots aren't meat eaters.
