In the house next door right next to mine
a little boy lives there
at Xmas time dear Santa Claus
brought him a teddy bear

He loves his little teddy bear
he's with it all day long
and the sweetest thing I've ever heard
is to hear him sing this song

Me and my teddy bear
have no worries, have no cares
me and my teddy bear
just play and play all day

I love my teddy bear
he has one eye and has no hair
but I love my teddy bear
we play and play all day

Every night he's with me
when I climb up the stairs
and by my bed he listens
until I say my prayers

Oh, me and my teddy bear
have no worries, have no cares
me and my teddy bear
just play and play all day

Every night he's with me
when I climb up the stairs
and by my bed he listens
until I say my prayers

Oh, me and my teddy bear
have no worries, have no cares
me and my teddy bear
just play and play all day
just play and play all day

Baby Boom of Endangered Species

Keepers closely watched female Przewalski’s horse Brandy for the past several weeks as they realized a birth was imminent. The foal was seen nursing soon after birth, which indicates the mother and offspring are bonding well.

Przewalski’s horses are critically endangered—only a few hundred reintroduced animals live in protected areas in their native China and Mongolia. The National Zoo is at the forefront of Przewalski’s horse conservation, which includes detailed reproductive studies of the herd at CRC, leading the Przewalski’s Horse North American Species Survival Plan and using GIS technology to study their movements in the wild.

Ray Charles was the musician most responsible for developing soul music. Singers like Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson also did a great deal to pioneer the form, but Charles did even more to devise a new form of black pop by merging '50s R&B with gospel-powered vocals, adding plenty of flavor from contemporary jazz, blues, and (in the '60s) country.

Then there was his singing; his style was among the most emotional and easily identifiable of any 20th century performer, up there with the likes of Elvis and Billie Holiday. He was also a superb keyboard player, arranger, and bandleader.

The brilliance of his 1950s and '60s work, however, can't obscure the fact that he made few classic tracks after the mid-'60s, though he recorded often and performed until the year before his death.

i know how it feels my dog went missing after 7 years. he was like a child. i think someone picked him up on the road while i was at work. it is a bad feeling. people just dont understand the pain they cause others when they take a pet or a child that is not theirs.

I'm so sorry about Bubba!! His being taken like that is like a mother taking her child to daycare, and someone taking that child! My continued prayers are with Bubba's family for their strength in this time, and for Bubba's safe return!!

Thank you to everyone who has shown concern for Bubba. We are especially asking for prayer to find out the truth about Bubba's kidnapping. The truth will lighten the heart of both the McMillans and those involved with the offender. It is time for healing and forgiveness to begin. Follow him on FB @ Bring Bubba the Bulldog HOME! Please spread his story far and wide.

My heart goes out to you and your family. I hope and Pray that Bubba is returned safely to his loving home. I am assuming he doesn't have a microchip so that he can be tracked?

Chips are only good if he shows up at a shelter that has a reader.

His is micro chipped. I do not want to say much more. Thanks!

----- by friend of Bubba's on Oct 5, 2011 at 09:54 PM in reply to Melanie
I believe he does have a microchip, but that won't help unless down the road someone scans it and notifies the true owners.

My birthstone: Turquoise so you know what month i was born.

Some facts about Turquoise:
Turquoise is the one of the official birth stones for the month of December as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912 and the Planetary stone for Aquarius, Taurus and Sagittarius.

The name turquoise is apparently related to the fact that is was brought to Europe from the Eastern Mediterranean by Levantine traders, more commonly known as Turks. Its been used as a valuable ornament for ages and was used by the Egyptians thousands of years ago. The color is, of course, turquoise, but its range of color varies from green and greenish blue to sky blue shades.

For centuries, the most valuable turquoise came from Iran (Persia) but today some specimens mined in the southwestern United States compete with it. The name "Persian Turquoise" is now generally used to refer to any turquoise stone that does not have the black or brown veining commonly found in turquoise mined in the United States and used in a style of jewelry created by the American Indians.

The Aztecs mined turquoise in an area now known as New Mexico and a significant amount of turquoise comes from Arizona, California and Nevada in the United States.

Folklore, Legend, and Healing Properties:
Turquoise attracts money, success and love. Its powers include protection, healing, courage, friendship, and luck. Relaxes the mind, and eases mental tension.

Turquoise is sacred to many Native American's and was carved in the shape of animals and birds. These carvings were placed in the Indians tombs to attract beneficial spirits and to guard the dead. Turquoise was also used by medicine men for healing and by warriors who fixed turquoise to the end of their bows to insure accurate shots.

Grevy's Zebra (Equus grevyi)

Check out these animals facts images:


Grevy's Zebra (Equus grevyi)
animals facts
Image by cliff1066™
Big heads, large and rounded ears, and thick, erect manes make the Grevy's zebra appear more mule-like than other zebras. In fact, many experts consider Grevy's zebras to be striped asses that are not closely related to other zebras. Their coats sport dazzling narrow stripes that wrap around each other in a concentric pattern and are bisected by a black stripe running down the spine. Grevy's zebras live in northern Kenya and southern and eastern Ethiopia. Grevy's zebras inhabit semi-desert areas, including arid grasslands and dusty acacia savannas. The most suitable areas have water year-round.

I don't know if that tiger already had a disorder or something but he ran around the compound from one side to the other.
I liked the fact that you can see the motion in that pic but that he himself is in focus.
