    This is a bit silly, but I keep seeing parrot profile pics on this site- I'm also keen on parrots and birds so it caught my eye more than it would others perhaps, but still, it seems like a lot of diabetics like parrots!
    Are they helpful for companionship and stress? Is it just a random coincidence?

    They're delicious fried with ginger and spring onions. ;-)

    Me - I'm scared of birds so you wont find one in my house. I even side-step the pigeons in town

    Dogs, however, I love my dog. He's a good companion, doesnt take much exercise (He's a rescued greyhound) and doesnt eat much for a big dog. He's soppy and loves the little ones around - granddaughters aged 8 and 3 months. My step-son calls him 'a brother from another mother'

    I'm definately an advocate for a dog
