Great video! Is that you and friends in the video? Must have been heart-stopping there for a second....

I love looking at snow - but I sure don't miss being IN snow.

Jen in Phoenix.

I encountered a full grown bull on a logging road switch back. This is really stupid for him to play with it and for the onlooker in the stationary truck to not intervene. With every swing of it's head the young bull could have gored him through the throat or eye either accidentally or on purpose. Really, really dumb.

Is there some local bush lore that says 'do this when a silly young bull has a go'?
I found the guy not being gored surprising, and somewhat exhausting!
I was thinking the whole time: there's escape vehicles, people behind cameras, what are you lot doing

It reminds me of this, which I found hilarious.

What a brilliant idea. Every exterminator should see this. They could place little signs in attics , basements and feed stores, telling mice rats and squirrels to move on.

I wonder if this woman has reproduced ? If she hasn't, she'll have time to help me with my petition to the United Nations.
It has come to my attention that certain areas of the world experience expensive transport costs, due to isolation and that others have horrible weather due to poor site selection. We're going to ask to have the globe shuffled a little. Canada's northern archipelago should be moved into some of the empty spaces between Bermuda and the Caribbean islands to the west. I'm sure Leila has experienced some long flights from New Zealand. If it were placed just east of Maryland, this would be far more convenient and would increase both manufacturing and tourism, since travel to N. America and Europe would be much easier.

23 hours beside someone with a hideous cough last time.
I submit we move NZ off the coast of Equador: we already grow some of their stuff, and I'd be sad without feijoas and tamarillos.
Handy central location...I could swing by Mexico, Brazil and the Galapagos...

Great Vids,
I love to see animals in their natural habitat. I'm hooked on David Attenborough and whenever I get down I just switch him on and I am reminded of how animals can overcome the most frustrating challenges in life with ease, it gives me enormous inspiration.


Edit:

...and is it just me or do I detect a hint of smiling self satisfaction on the fox's face(They always look like they are smiling to me )

My cows often do that when I let them into a new paddock.

From that clip:

We have to give something back to the cows.



Yeah, I already did that. Now can I eat them? Burp - too late!
