Wild Life Photo's

Thursday, March 01, 2012

The Law Of The Wild says kill ONLY when you are hungry

Photographer Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing pictures on safari in Kenya's Masai Mara in October last year, said he was astounded by what he saw:

"These three brothers (cheetahs) have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old,' he said.

'On the morning we saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking quickly but stopping sometimes to play together.

'At one point, they met a group of impala who ran away. But one youngster was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily'."

These extraordinary scenes followed.

and then they just walked away without hurting him..........

Life is short... forgive quickly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably...and never regret anything that made you smile


It's gangs like these that the people of Calgary have to put up with..

A bit different from the problems in other cities...

It proves that every City has their own "unique" gang problems. They roam the streets and yards night and day.

They hang out in even the best neighborhoods!

..and you CANNOT (legally) stop them.


This is probably the most amazing picture of 2011!!!

The myth of the bum-wobbler

Thursday, March 01, 2012

When I was around seven years old, my mom joined a gym. This was pre-Virgin Active or Planet Fitness. There were no vast halls of super-modern machinery, no personal trainers and no Lycra. It was an upstairs room above a bakery, where flabby suburban people could attempt to exercise their muscles while the demotivating smell of freshly-baked bread wafted up through the air conditioning.

My favourite piece of equipment was what I called the bum-wobbler. It was a large material strap that she placed over her hips. Flip a switch and hey presto, instant bum wobble! I think it was supposed to stimulate the muscles and maybe even shake loose a little cellulite, but mostly it was just fabulous fun to watch Ė a rollercoaster for the eyes.

This dream of exercise being a passive thing has by no means diminished. Switch on the television late at night and you will still find some hyper-buff salesperson testifying about the benefits of a machine that sends impulses through the abdominal muscles in order to achieve a high level of fitness - while sitting on the couch.

Iím not a fan. Yes, there might be an improvement in the muscle tone, but unless you are bed-ridden, thereís no substitute for getting out into the world and moving your body. Even if it is fairly slowly along the beachfront with the dog.

Maybe itís the work ethic ingrained in me from when I was a little girl, but I am of the firm opinion that when it comes to fitness, you get nothing for nothing.

But I must confess, the smell of bread baking will always remind me of the bum-wobbler and the fantasy of exercise without effort.

Would you believe it if 16 dogs ran through your neighborhood.

Thursday, March 01, 2012


Please watch the YouTube... Fantastic!

Believe it or not, the man in this clip takes 16 dogs out for a several mile run while he rides his bike, and then lets them swim in a lake during the run. It's amazing how well trained and disciplined they are. They even give the right of way to oncoming walkers and stop at the street intersections. If you like animals, especially dogs, you'll enjoy this short clip. Even if you're not an animal or dog person you'll still enjoy it.

    Thanks for sharing.I agree with Editor-the man is definitely their
leader. I personally wouldn't attempt this. My dog would probably
take off.
