Keeping Safe

Covid-19 is not the first pandemic that has threatened this world – but it is the current one. There was no internet for the other big ones though, and this has been a method of spreading the information (both true and untrue information) quickly for this pandemic. So – how are you doing? I have… Continue reading Keeping Safe

It Has Been 4 Years

It has been 4 years this August since my trip to Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands in South Africa and it is time to go again. We can partially blame my addiction to Africam for my desire to be in South Africa – but once you’ve been there, you just have to go back. … Continue reading It Has Been 4 Years

Another Day – Another Year

It is amazing how days blend into weeks, which blend into months and before you know it – another year has come and gone. Good-bye to 2015 and hello to 2016. Chester is doing great.  It has been 3 1/2 years since his last seizure.  He had to slow down a bit for a few… Continue reading Another Day – Another Year

The camera was set… Continue reading Cheetah Cam at Africam

Africam – Jon Oliver

Anyone who has been reading my blog for even a short time is aware of my addiction for Africam as well any and all critters (wild or pets).  If you follow Africam yourself as well, you will probably have already heard of Jon Oliver’s death earlier this week. Today Africam released their remembrance of Jon.… Continue reading Africam – Jon Oliver

Gertjie (Little G) the Baby Rhino

On May 8th, 2014  the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre – which is located just outside Hoedspruit in South Africa – took in a baby Rhino after his mother had been killed by poachers.  This 3 month old baby is lucky to have ended up at HESC where he will be cared for by the experts… Continue reading Gertjie (Little G) the Baby Rhino

A New Chapter

When I started working at the Y almost 14 years ago, it was a part time job for me – just meant to cover the gap between my part time salary at a government job and my expenses.  Five and a half years later, I retired from the government job and went full-time at the… Continue reading A New Chapter
