Well this is my first time ever creating a blog. I think I have held off on writing an entry for this great website my husband has created because of a healthy respect/fear of computers and the internet. The arrangement that my husband and I have in our household is that I am responsible for all of the pets’ care and medical needs and my husband is responsible for all things technology and computer. Thus, I have been able to use avoidence techniques to stay away from entering the world of the internet aside from research, emailing,and my latest feather in the cap of mastering google docs. For years, my husband has been asking me to share some of my stories and experiences of avian and exotic medicine, and this seems to be a great forum for this. It will also allow me to keep a great database of exotic and avian websites and links. I am sure by blogs will digress into stories about my family that I find humerous as well as other current events in my life but I will try to keep a steady stream of either educational, humerous or touching animal stories in the blog as well.
