Stonehaven's nice. Remember going there as a kid. Small coastal towns in Scotland are generally quite picturesque. Was at North Berwick yesterday after watching the Vulcan flyover. First time there. Took some pics but not brilliant as weather was cold, windy and very hazy.
I have vague memories of going to Stonehaven beach when I was a kid. I was just saying to Gerry,when he sent me the pic, that I must go back soon.
ahh they are lovely. The fox cubs - gorgeous; the orangs of course; adorable cheetahs and a lovely red panda. But the jaguar a bit scary and the robin needs to go on a diet ;-)Beautiful landscapes too.
Thanks PP. The Orang pic is a bit sad, as they are being helped out of an area which is being burned by humans.I don't think I like humans much.I do like fat we Robins though :)
Do remember that, unlike the obese humans you see waddling around, that isn't flesh that inflates the robin's figure. He has just puffed up his feathers for insulation against the cold.
Oh right, I though he'd eaten too many pies. Apologies Mr Robin, I have unfairly traduced you.
LOL yes, that's true. I always thought my garden robin was a fat little fellow (he ate enough sultanas, meal worms and fat balls... not to mention following me around the garden when I was digging to mop up anything tasty... but one day I saw him when he'd just come out of the pond, after his morning ablutions... and really he was quite a skinny wee bird.
The wee elephant looks so happy.
You can sense the wee lad's/lass's joy. I remember going to the beach when I wasthat age. It was magical.
I agree with Jim, the wee elephant was having as much a good time as any bairn. The Orangs, so sad that this happens time and time again. These are some of our closest relations, how dare we destroy their habitat. I am very reluctant to use anything containing Palm Oil because that is what is being planted in their stead.Robins, I just love 'em and yes they puff up their feathers to keep the cold out, sensible birds. The wee Red Panda was lovely and don't you think all babies animals are lovely.I have access to a video of a French Bulldog chasing to well grown Bear Cubs which is hilarious and frightening at the same time. I am grateful that we do not have Bears here, because Hektor would do the same but less polite. www.msn.com/en-ca/video/animals/french-bulldog-takes-on-bears/vi-AAf6f6T
Helena you are so right about palm oil, there is one brand of oatcakes which states they orang friendly with no palm oil. Plus I'm not sure palm oil is that good for us humans either. But orangs deserve better. I've just apologised above to Mr Robin for casting aspersions.As for that French bull dog, bleeding heck he's fierce. I'm nor sure mummy bear would have been too impressed by it though.
Wow ... what a vicious dog. I'd think twice about burgling their place... well, you know, if I was a burglar!!!Yes, we should all boycott palm oil. I think you're right, it's not healthy stuff.
I keep getting e-mails from campaign groups looking to put in a petition to someone or other about the destruction of tropical forest in order to grow trees for palm oil. I now regard them as a distraction from the real problem - the supermarkets are now fixated on anything that will increase their profits regardless of the ecological cost - i.e. the destruction of the ecosystem of the planet on which we all live. I no longer sign these petitions. I take direct action.I stopped going to the supermarkets for my regular shopping when i discovered that all but one of the brands of oatcakes contained palm oil. I stopped shopping at M&S (for anything) when I saw on the packet they were using palm oil in their oatcakes. As long as they make oatcakes without palm oil, I will buy them from my local bakery. I do have a recipe and can make my own if needs be. It is not that hard.
If we all follow your advice there, there will be a market niche for oatcakes, which you will be primed and ready to fill.Actually we'd all be a lot better if we made out own stuff. I know it would take time, but it's a better way of passing your life than being fed lies by the BBC.
Like others that baby elephant epitomises is how life should be if only politicians told large corporations to bugger off then life would become much simpler and enjoyable for the many not the few.
That's the truth. It would be even better if we then told the government to bugger off....
