Still More from Assiniboine Park Zoo

A lot of the critters at Assiniboine Park Zoo were awake and active when I was there on Friday – so I have lots of pictures and videos to share.  So, we continue with more of them today.  🙂 Snow Leopard These are the 2 young ones that were born last year.  I couldn’t see… Continue reading Still More from Assiniboine Park Zoo

More From Assiniboine Park Zoo

I had more than enough Polar Bear pictures to fill my last entry so now here are more of the critters from that trip to the zoo. Cougar Canada Geese (who live there because they want to).

Polar Bears – Assiniboine Park Zoo

The Polar Bears were having so much fun in the fresh snow we had overnight.  I took lots of pictures and a short video while watching them. The Journey to  Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo is such a natural place for these big guys.  There is no pacing as is often seen in zoo… Continue reading Polar Bears – Assiniboine Park Zoo

The Changing of the Phones – part 2

As often seems to happen, something that I thought was settled, actually wasn’t.  Such is the case with my new IPhone 5 from a couple of weeks ago. I had not been planning on getting a new phone when I went to talk to my cell phone company that day, so had not been prepared… Continue reading The Changing of the Phones – part 2

Milk Tart (Melktert)

Milk Tart or Melktert is an African dessert.  In Afrikans, it is called Melktert, but since I am not African, I will just call it by the English name of Milk Tart.  As you might guess, milk is the primary ingredient in this yummy pie.  🙂 I had never heard of Milk Tart before going… Continue reading Milk Tart (Melktert)

Chester’s New Toy

Chester love his toys and he has plenty of them to play with.  The squeaky ones are his favourites, but as his hearing fades, he sometimes doesn’t hear them any more. One of my co-workers was telling me about a new squeaky toy she had picked up for her dog and commented on how loud… Continue reading Chester’s New Toy

My Own Journey to Churchill

I’m not talking about another trip to the Journey to Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo this time.  I have now scheduled a trip to Churchill to see the Polar Bears in the wild. I was minding my own business and reading emails when I saw a one day trip to Churchill from CAA –… Continue reading My Own Journey to Churchill
