Boo on you for criticizing me and what I do with my birds. Who do
you think you are by being mean to others? I did do it in a timely

the taping works great. But don't go acting like a Miss Know - it -
all and telling people things in a cruel manner! This is not what
this chat is all about or are you too vain to see that?!
