“Mr. Praline [John Cleese]: It's not pining. It's passed on. This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. This is a late parrot. It's a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. If you hadn't nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies. It's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. THIS IS AN EX-PARROT.

Back in my other life, I used to do technology work. From pulling network cables, fixing computers and designing web sites; I did it all. I decided I needed to spend more time with my mutant offspring so I changed my career to insurance. Now, well now I am just "piddling" with the web site and helping other local business owners get theirs set up.
