Should I?…And how do I?!

So my partner keeps insisting that I should start streaming…Mainly my Sims 4 games.

For those who may not know “Streaming” is where you play video/console games … COMPLETELY LIVE! (Don’t know why I wrote that in capitals)

It is actually something I have thought about, but I am such a noob!

For those who may not know what a “Noob” is, it’s someone who is really bad at games … Hence why I love the Sims.

If anyone out there, reads my Blog and does do live feeds…Can we chat?

Streaming? Too do it or not too do it?

I watch and have a few friends that stream and it seems like it would be so much fun too do! However a lot of my friends who do Stream say that it’s much more horrible for girls. They get targeted a lot!

Where does one start with Streaming anyway?

The most interesting game I probably play is The Sims. I do play Guild Wars 2 as well, but since I am part of a Guild, I can’t really use them as well.

Last Chances

Just a friendly reminder that this is the last week for Safari Lives television special on Nat Geo Wild television station. If you do not live in the United States, like my self, you can also keep watching it on the Internet as well, as per usual.

I thought that I should post the link so you can have a look at the actual Park where most of these animals reside. When I say reside, they are free to come back and forth as they please.

A special New Years message

I have made this entirely different New Years Blog just to express my thanks and gratitude for an entirely different group of people. We’ve gone through a lot together, from difficult technical issues to illnesses, to the death of beloved and favourite animals.

Most of us have never even actually met before, yet we feel loss without one another when one of us hasn’t been around for a while. I would definitely consider all of you to be my friend and good friends at that. Some of you are better friends to me than my friends that I see.

You have all brought so much happiness to my life and gotten me through some really rough days. I don’t know what I would have done with the awesomeness that you have brought to my life.

I raise my glass to you! I’m not sure you know what you’ve done for me, the happy you’ve brought into my life ❤

Here comes the rain again! = Big Cat Week (18/9-25/9)

For those who are regular readers of my Blog, you will know that I am obsessed with a particular Ustream tv program called “Wildearth Safari” or if you follow Twitter “#SafariLive”. I’ve been watching it for a couple of years or so now. You might have even watched it during Big Cat Week over the last couple of years, as during that week they put the drive live on television.

The last few months have been hard for the animals there, mainly the grass eater/prey type food. There has been a really bad drought and the last month in particular, you can tell how rough it has been getting. A lot of the predators have not even been hunting to much as the prey has been succumbing to the drought.

I am extremely happy to say then that last night and the day before Djuma received some rain!  https://twitter.com/graham_/status/777317528406220800 …

Coming from a country that also suffers a lot from droughts, I think it’s the only time I love hearing that rain is coming. I have been watching the live feeds with the sound turned up as the rain falls. The animals so desperately need it. It’s been so sad to see them getting worse and worse. Although on the other side the predators have been having an amazing time!

On a completely but kind of related topic…Just to let my American comrades know that this week is “Big Cat Week” on Nat Geo Wild and the drives will be showing. You should take complete advantage of this. I wish we had it here down under.

The Circle of Life

I thought that I’d start the Monday morning with something actually cheerful…Well I think it is anyways, I hope that you will too.

As my long time readers probably know I watch a little Ustream live feed called “Safari Live”…I have been watching it for probably about twoish years now and I watch whenever I can.

Take a quick read of one of my past posts (Live Safari Update: Sept 21 2015). I can now say that the “BBoys” are the now well established coalition that watches over the Styx and Nkuhuma prides. Just for a quick run down, the BBoys took over the Matimba males just at the end of last year. Five to Two, even with the experience of the Matimba males, they were just too outnumbered. A lot of death and mayhem.

One of the things the regualrly followers have said about the Bboys is that they had better give us some cute cubs! … Now it looks like it’s happened for both the Styx and the Nkuhuma prides! Yes, us regular viewers can be quiet the fickle bunch, but the wild is harsh. Any sign of new life is celebrated.

The below video is of the new Nkuhuma lion cubs:

This other video is of the Styx lion cubs:

Aren’t they just precious?!

Live Web Feeds

As many of you probably know I am a big fan of Wild Earths/Ustream web feed of Wild Earth Safari Live…Pretty much I think sometimes I borderline on the obsession. Anyways because people are aware I watch these I’ve started to realise that there are so many other feeds through Ustream that I watch and I very rarely mention these other ones.

Sea Eagles – Australia

Currently this Ustream channel is filmed in Sydney Australia and it follows two parent Sea Eagles raising their young. This particular hatching season, they have managed to, so far,  successfully hatch two baby chicklets and know you can just watch them feed and eventually start to learn to fly.

Owl Channel – America

Here you can watch wild Barn Owls (Tyto alba) in live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They roost and nest in an owl box we call the Hideout. We have a camera inside the Hideout as well as cameras outside to see them come and go.

Explore – Brook Falls

Watching exclusive live footage from Alaska’s Brooks River in Katmai National Park. Every year over a hundred Brown Bears descend on a mile long stretch of Brooks River to feast on the largest Sockeye Salmon run in the world.
ALSO though through this particular Ustream feed, you are also able to view other cameras through the website explore.org/ . You can look up feeds on Puffins, Panda and Walruses…Just to name a few!

 

Kudu, Kudu, Kudu!

As many of my readers know I watch a Ustream live feed called “Wild Earth Safari”. I talk a lot about the baby animals, Lions … As the guides say “The Big 5” as in the five most popular animal that people like to watch and see on Safari.

I feel kind of bad about it as well, because there are just so many beautiful animals. Including a beautiful beast called the “Kudu”.

After Lions, Elephants and Hyena I just adore these animals are just gorgeous and they are so beautiful. They are just so magical and mythical like.
The horns on a Kudu bulls head can reach all the way up too 120cm (47 in), if they were to be straightened. A Kudu bull can also reach a weight of 190kg – 270 kg (420 – 600 lb). They are quiet large animals. The other interesting thing to note is that a Kudu cow will leave a newborn baby in hidden vegetation for the first 4-5 weeks, coming back and forth. This is a little unusual with Herbivores.
