Share Your World … Week 47

Share Your World … Week 47

*Now I have to start by saying, I’m from Australia, so we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here…But I do like thinking about what I’m grateful for*

On Thursday it will be Thanksgiving in the USA and I thought we could do a grateful list for this week.  Most of these questions can be answered with just a couple of words, just put down the first thing that comes to mind.  Yes, I know you writers will never use just one or two words to respond to any question.

What are you grateful for in regard to:

  • Your home life?

I feel SO safe in my home life, ever since I developed my weird anxiety. There are two only places I don’t suffer from it all, my home and my partners home. It’s been very annoying,lol

  • Your family?

My mums side especially, we are all so completely different and yet we get along so well. We’re the only family I know that actually enjoy hanging out together with everyone. With no fear of judgement for our differences. We have gay, straight, religious, atheist, sporty, geeky, quiet, loud. We’re small side too.

  • Your blogging community?

I love it! I can’t explain it, but I do. I don’t personally know anyone here, but I love it. I feel happy when I’m Blogging.

  • Your city or immediate area in which you live?

I am mainly living with my Mum at the moment, but spending more and more time at my partners house. I live close to everything major in my little town, but my street seems cut off. It’s fantastic! Close to everything, but can cut myself from the world when I need too.

  • The regional area in which you live?

We are pretty close to a lot of different things, some of the main attractions in my area. Entertainment, social, can choose to go picnic or a nice restaurant dinner.

  • The country where you live?

Australia is a great country, sure we have our faults, but what country doesn’t? I feel like we are pretty lucky here.

  • You?

I keep fighting, lately I’ve been feeling very fobbed off at a time of year people should be helping each other out. Making life a little bit easier. I had to put in a complaint recently to a company and I have never had to do that before.

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.

I’m Back!

I am back from my short holiday interstate and it was such a great weekend…I was trying to write something this morning, but I just felt so tired. I was very lucky that I was not working today, because I’ve had this little bit of a headache, just at the front of my head.

I love to travel, I am not a very good flyer (I get motion sickness) but there is something about travelling and seeing a different state that can just motivate one. My Aunt and I were talking about how if we lived in Melbourne we’d probably get bored of it and she’s probably right…But I still really love it. I think that Melbourne is the state that my State should be modelling itself on and I think we are headed that way…However slowly. I am actually not a big Sydney fan, it’s just to busy.

I am looking forward to the rest of the week to see what happens. I need things to change!

Share My World

This week Cee’s Photography is taking a week off this week (and rightly deserved too…Head to her page and see the amazing weekly challenges she shares with us all) Cee’s Photography … But what do I do now?! I know I can give you all a Safari Live Update! It’s been nearly two months since I last gave you all one…Live Safari Update (21/09/15)

The first is the situation with the Birmingham Boys has calmed quiet a lot down. In fact there is the possibility that one of the prides of females from the Styx pride has given birth recently. Now I suspect that the fathers may actually be the Matimba Males…Lionesses however are actually quiet clever ladies.  So they have been “fake mating” with the Birmingham Boys. This where a lady cat (a lot of the big cats do it) will fake mate with a Male so that the reigning Males will believe that the little cubs are actually theirs.

The other thing to note that the two Matimba males have not gotten themselves into any death matches with the BBoys, they have however, taken off and have a whole new area that they patrol.

One of the more interesting stories to have come from the Matimba males is that of the sub-adult “Junior of the Nkuhuma Pride” He’s an unusual story in that he has no other brother that he would usually head off on his own with, instead he seems to be hanging around the Nkuhuma pride all the time. This unusual as Junior is now 3 and a half years old, usually by now Junior would have been chased off by his Father and Uncles. We’ve all grown quiet fond of Junior, but this is the African Wild life … Anything can happen! Don’t you just adore his little mane! =D (Although I shouldn’t tease, he couldn’t quite easily take me down!)

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!

 

Little Gunga <3

Today I was a little shocked to come onto the Ostrich Egg cam live and to see that there was no more little Gunga! Luckily after about a minute of investigation I could stop panicking because little Gunga had not passed away suddenly. Which was so relieving to me, because Gunga was so fiesty!

What had happened was Daddy Dash and kind Rancher Joel decided to break the other egg shells and were sad to discover that the other eggs had not developed properly. So they were not going to grow any further. So what they have decided to do was to take Gunga out and let him/her run free with a kind Rancher Joel other baby Ostriches. Baby ostriches thrive much better when they have other ostriches to run around with.

Of course this all happened while I was asleep.

SO at the moment it’s just some last chatting before the chat comes off and probably waiting a whole another year for the next lot =D

 

It’s nearly time!

This weekend you should all be watching this web Ustream TV live feed…THIS WEEKEND!

Ostrich Egg – Cam Live!

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Real-PIP-Ostrich-Page/498324633586792?fref=ts

If you are long time reader of mine you will know a couple of years ago I fell in love with little Pip. The baby Ostrich that was hatched and raised by the Dash family for a little before she tragically passed away. Baby birds, or birds in general are extremely sensitive and so the littlest thing can easily kill them.

Please join me on the 25th of this month and we can witness this awesome moment together, I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Please read my previous posts about the other viewings.
