This could be me. Someone posted this on my Facebook page.
You can watch with the sound turned down since all you hear
is the TV in the background.

South American Mountain Coatimundi :)


It's amazing how those grown men react to such
a tame animal. Wussies!

Gary,

Hummingbirds need more than "nectar." They eat small insects
to get protein. If you're not able to feed your little hummer
some protein in the form of insects, you really need to find
a hummingbird rehabilitator. If there isn't one who can take
over for you, there might be one who will at least give you
advice either over the Internet or over the phone. Please try
to find someone to help.

And please don't buy the nectar crap they sell in stores. It really
isn't as good as they want you to think it is. Especially if
it contains red dye, which could be harmful to hummers.

Suzy and all

I'm not the one with the bird. The person who has it already told me they know it needs insects in addition to nectar. Also this person has had successful outcomes before.


Okay. Good. Thanks! :-)

One of my neighbors told me that a large raccoon had been trapped
and taken away from our neighborhood about a week ago, and that is
about the last time I saw my backyard friend - the raccoon who
came into my house via the doggy door to eat the cat food. He and
I were growing quite close.

Now I'm very sad. It's just another little joy in my life that has
been taken away.

The Animal Control people have reassured me that any raccoon that
they trap is relocated to a non-populated area. I don't know how
successful my "Baby" will be in an area where he has to relearn
how to find food. I have to hope he'll be okay, but I'm having
trouble.

What happens if you turn your hose on and stick it in a
gopher hole? Will it chase out the gophers? I imagine it
would only be a temporary fix, though.

Just curious.

During my physical examination, my doctor asked me about my physical activity level.
I described a typical day this way:

"Well, yesterday afternoon, I took a five hour walk about 7km through some pretty rough terrain.
I waded along the edge of a lake.
I pushed my way through brambles.
I got sand in my shoes and my eyes.
I avoided standing on a snake.
I climbed several rocky hills.
I took a few 'leaks' behind some big trees.
The mental stress of it all left me shattered.
At the end of it all I drank eight beers" Inspired by the story, the doctor said, "You must be one hell of an outdoors man!"

"No," I replied, "I'm just a rubbish golfer".


HA!

Dang Sue. Those things have sharp little needle-like teeth. I'm surprised you were willing to pick up an opossum.


It's hard to think of the danger when you see something that cute and that
small. I know it's a dumb thing to do, just like scratching the neck of the
raccoon that was "trapped" in my kitchen cupboard. (I told you about that
didn't I?) I just have a strong feeling that God will keep me safe, as long
as I'm doing the right thing. So far He hasn't let me down.

I was mowing my "lawn" today. It was actually mostly weeds that had
grown to about three feet (approx. one mitre) tall. I barely got
started when out of the "bush" came the cutest little possum. It
was small - definitely a juvenile. And it was alone. I did't have
my phone nearby so I didn't get a photo. I picked him up and moved
him away from the mowing, and I didn't want to hang onto him longer
than necessary just for the sake of having a photo. I was very tempted
to keep him as a pet. He was just soooo cute! Of course I wouldn't
keep him as a pet. I suspect it's illegal to do so, anyway.

Wow Janne, that is the first image of a White Bear attack
victim where the human was still alive and in one peace,
that I have ever seen.
That is one lucky guy!

Do you call Polar Bears for White Bears?
We call them Ice Bears:)
Anyway he was very lucky.
The only predator that "likes" human flesh is Polar Bears.

Here we only have Brown Bears but in a 100 years there have only been 2 attacks to humans.
Both of them was carrying a rifle btw


Wow. Bears carrying rifles. Now there's a real threat! ;-)

Well if I had the extra money right now, that would be spaghetti, I make a large batch, in what is a large 10-15 qt pan with a lid. Oh and My favorite sauce? Prego, if I can find it in Chunky vegetable... With ground beef for meatballs, cooked in a microwave oven and lots of spaghetti cheese... Yummy!

At the moment, nothing.


I make my own spaghetti sauce, sort of, but cheat by adding marinara sauce.

Start by browning a pound of italian sausage (loose, like ground beef -
not the stuff in the casings). It's no more expensive than ground beef,
and it tastes so much better.

Add to that three or four cans of "italian style" diced or stewed
tomatoes and one jar of marinara sauce. (I use Paul Neuman's brand
because it does't list sugar on the label.) If you want to make a
bigger batch, add more tomatoes. Of course, you can add another jar
of marinara.

Using one jar of marinara and several cans of tomatoes really brings
the price down.

A San Francisco carpenter performed a wonderful act of kindness by freeing a trapped raccoon — and was fired as a result.

"In celebration of Save a Spider Day (March 12th), what we hope this
list says — what we hope this list proves — is that spiders aren’t
just something to be screamed at, or squished beneath boot heels,
but something to be respected, and even admired."
