- 1 qt hydrogen peroxide

Make Your Own Sanitizer
6 tablespoons rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol), at least 60% alcohol by volume
2 teaspoons aloe vera gel
Mixing bowl and spoon
Recycled and washed hand sanitizer bottle or liquid soap bottle
Simply mix the alcohol and aloe vera together well and pour it into the bottle using the funnel. You can double, triple or quadruple the recipe as needed.
Note that you shouldn't use fresh aloe vera, but should use a commercial gel because fresh won't remain stable for long-term use, says Wellness Mama. And while some people might suggest the addition of essential oils like lavender or peppermint, these can irritate some people's skin.
Raul Rodriguez came by to get Sebastian groomed by Karen for his Rose Parade 2013 appearance on the Dole float. Mr. Rodriguez designed the Dole float as well as several others as he does every year!

GREATEST PET PEEVE
do not understand how a person with any sense, can call me
franticly, and tell me that their bird has not been breathing
right for two weeks, and want to know what to do. Where in
the hell were you two weeks ago when we had a chance to save
your bird. (Pardon my language, or don't, I don't care).
do not wait until it's too late, when your bird shows signs
of illness of any kind call your avian veterinarian NOW!
You know that birds mask their symptoms and when they finally
do show you that they are ill it is time to move fast. Their
natural instinct is to pretend wellness, in the wild if they
show signs of weakness or illness the other birds in the flock
will kill them and eat them to protect the rest of the flock
from predators. There
is no time to waste, no time to procrastinate, if you wish
to save your bird's life you must move quickly. PLEASE, and
if you are not willing to do so find a loving home for your
bird, with someone financially able to care for it properly
and get yourself a potted plant.

so that you wouldn't be ashamed to sell the family parrot to
the town Gossip.
