Amanda, there are quite a few pictures on Noelle's 2 threads:

http://www.mytoos.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=211747&page=1

They are all in Photobucket, and if you right click the pictures it should let you save them to your computer. Feel free to use any that you like.

Amanda,

Oh course you can use anything I have. I wish you the best of luck with your speech and will be anxious to hear about it.

Below are a few links. If you need my sign in and password to download anything you want to print, let EM know and I will get them to you.

Thanks to all, I am putting the finishing touches on my speech. I met with my professor today so she could look over my speech and basically she said I had too many ideas swirling around so she wants me to focus it a little more. Originally my purpose was more along the lines of "be informed, spread information, choose whether or not a parrot is for you and if it is, adopt, if not, donate/sponsor" but I guess now the purpose will be "after hearing all of this, if you still want a parrot, adopt. If not, sponsor/donate."

I'm being sneaky and pretty much everything anyone tells me to take out of the introduction and conclusion I'm slipping into other places.

Ha Ha! Yes, their job is to educate you and it is always easier and more effective to focus that process so that all steps in the process are clear and well defined. They would never allow you to select a topic like "chemistry" but would want you to select something like "organic chemistry in cosmetics" or something similar. LOL You'll do fine! Keep up the good work because professors appreciate passion too! cool

Here is a link to a video recording of my speech, I will also post the outlines if anyone wants to see them... I nailed my speech, thanks everyone soooo much for your help!

I can also post the powerpoint if anyone wants to see it? It's just 2 simple picture montages, a sound clip of cockatoos screaming a final picture with 2 pictures of mango from CARE.

Let me know both what you guys want and (charlie) what I can upload.

Thanks! In the middle of the speech someone muttered "are you trying to convince me to not get a parrot?" i looked at him, smiled and said "maybe" lol

After class, a girl that was considering buying a cockatoo thanked me for my info and said she wouldn't be going back to the pet store laugh

Apparently the store owner had told her that the cockatoo would want to cuddle all day...
