I think that's an African lovebird.  We had one for a few years when I was in jr. high....Dad adopted her from a neighbor who had to get rid of her because she was nutso.  Kept shredding paper and building nests, and would occasionally lay an egg, but had no mate. Dad wanted to see if he could get a mate for her and breed her.  (He did, and she pitched a fit, and killed the boy.)

Dad was a parrot fan...he grew up with a South American green parrot who could mimic my grandmother's voice perfectly.  When he was in college he lived with his aunt, and she had a mynah who was a VERY silly talker.  Both those birds were long gone by the time I was born.

Anyway, I don't remember what happened to Doc, the African bird, but we also had budgies from time to time, and one of them learned to say quite a few things.

Loren's correct, both in the ethanol and the athleticism. And remember, Helio Castroneves won the "Dancing With Stars" several years ago. Heavy on the pedal, light afoot.
Indiana has a very large population of Amish/German Baptists, etc. We call them "Old Orders" around my area. Really, they're quite friendly, so I won't put them down.

On the second viewing, Amish road rage still brings a chuckle.

Stupid Amish! But many religious are like that - the lot where I grew up was the same.

News bulletin: Indy cars don't use gasoline; they use ethanol, currently supplied by Sunoco.  Oh, and as for "not being a sport," I've met several professional drivers, among them Al Unser, Jr, whose handshake might as well have been iron ... or didn't you know there is no power steering on their machines?

Should I also mention that, over a 500-mile race, most drivers will lose an average of 10 pounds of water weight, owing to the heat on the track and in their cars, never mind their own exertion?  Seems I just did.

Or an Amish-type race with horse-drawn Model T Fords.

(I despise the Amish; they are the largest group of puppy and kitten mill operators in the US.  "Animals have no souls, so we can treat them like self-replicating machines.")

The Indy 500 contestants pushing their own cars would make it a true sport!

Comment by Plinius on Saturday

Push their own cars? Lovely to see!
