Animals Know Better

In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother’s cub’s, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species, will take on the care of a different species. The only ‘orphans’ that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops?

Take a look…

Now, please tell me one more time…

Why can’t the rest of the world get along?

Have Faith In You

Every life serves a purpose.  Some that seem, at first, to have such little hope of having a place in this world, can become those with the greatest gift….hope!

Another inspiring mail I received from a friend…  Sharing is Caring.  Enjoy reading the story :)

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with  2 legs.
He could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.

 

His first owner also did not think that he could survive, and he was thinking of ‘putting him to sleep’.   But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.   She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself.

She named him ‘Faith’.

 
In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement.  Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around.  Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk.  Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle,

Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward.  After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.  No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.   He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.

There is now a book entitled ‘With a Little Faith’ published about him.

His present owner Jude Stringfellew has  given up her  teaching post and plans to take him around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have  a perfect  soul’.

   

In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.
I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.

Faith  is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.

A Scorpion Giving Birth…  Have you seen one?

The scorpion’s birth process is truly amazing. The female’s back opens up and scores of newborn scorpions crawl out, and then the back grows back together like nothing has happened.

Nature really is surprising.

Any Ideas how a scorpion gives birth.  Here are the following photos you will find very sensational :)

At the back of this female scorpio a small slit would start to open on day 1…

Oh Gross!  Then numbers of baby scorpions started to advance on day two…

On day 3, still the baby scorpions continue to progress…

On day 4 the baby scorpions gradually move out and start to crawl and spread…

Yay! So Many of them :)

Last day on the 5th, the baby scorpions continue their way out, yet the young scorpion mother stays uninterrupted…

Look how breathtaking it is, young scorpion mother is back again to normal…  :)

AMAZING!  Isn’t it?

A Lesson From Nature…

This is a testimony to the popular axiom:

“Where there is will there is a way”.

With the following images you may find interesting parallels in your own life’s experiences…

Yihey!  Bravo, this snail made it!
But why the snail did not just try to cross on the wood bridging between these two woods… I wonder… Perhaps it knew that the green paint covering that wood was still wet and this would just give the snail a delay to its journey ? Or it maybe easy to cross over there but it might danger its life, who knows? So the snail chose to do the best it could to reach its goal, by trusting itself.  I guess the snail took charge of its own life and made a difference. Cool, isn’t it? :)

What about you? If you were this snail what would you do?

Forget Me Not & Mon Amie La Rose

forget me not

Tired and withered
Worldly beauty not eternal
But will stay in hearts
haiku by
AshiAkira

And here is a lovely song to go with this photo sent to me by V :)

***

It is very little.
And my friend Rose told me this morning.
At dawn I was born, called dew.
I blossomed.
Happy and in love.
The radius of the sun.

I closed the night.
I am woken aged.
But I was very beautiful.
Yes I was the most beautiful.
Flowers from your garden.

It is very little.
And my friend Rose told me this morning.
See the God who made ​​me.
Made me bow his head.

And I feel like I’m falling.
And I feel that I fall my heart
I almost bare foot in the grave.
Already I am no longer.
You admired me only yesterday and I would dust.
Forever tomorrow.

It is very little.
And my friend the rose died this morning.
The moon that night, watched my friend.
I dreamed I saw. Dazzling night.

His soul dancing.
The already well-seen.
And will be me.
Believes him who believes.
I am in need of hope.
Otherwise, I am nothing.

It is little
and my friend Rose told me this morning.
See that god made ​​me.
Made me bow his head.
And I feel like I’m falling.

And I feel that I fall
my heart is almost bare.
I have a foot in the grave.
Already I am no longer.
You admired me only yesterday.
And I’d dust.
Forever tomorrow.

Let’s drink up our coffee and Forget Me Not! :)

Shape Of My Heart

u-torrent

 

Shape Of My Heart is the Music Passion entry of Jaycee68 for February Edition: HEART

It was also the THEME SONG from the Movie: Leon The Professional

  •  

Jaycee mentioned in her post that she “Love the movie and Adore Jean Reno”  :)

Well I got so curious about it because Natalie Portman, my favorite actress was the leading lady of the said film.

I looked for it in the internet and downloaded it.  I watched it and Jaycee was right, it was really a brilliant film.  I enjoyed watching it.

And so I am excited to watch this film with you guys in our  Cafe Siesta .  And for you to have a copy of the said movie,  I will give the link so that you can download it too.

But first you must have U-TORRENT (bi-Torrent) in your computer:

U Torrent

Click to download

  • And then open ISO-HUNT  on your browser, and search for Leon The Professsional
… or just simply click this : http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/115514261/leon+the+professional?tab=summary
  • Next click DOWNLOAD- SAVE
  • Then open it, click OK and right away it will go directly to U-TORRENT (bi-torrent)and the movie will be downloaded. The downloading time will depend on how strong/fast is your net and it will finish like few hours or a day or two or more…
 

It will look like this: u-torrent

Here is the Movie Trailer:

  • And when everything is ready always have your favorite cup of coffee with you :)  Enjoy

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Note:  I am sorry about the link… above.  I downloaded the PPS for today’s cafe siesta for several attempts, and it wasn’t working… Thanks Carol for getting my attention about this :) hahaha I wasn’t aware of it.  My apologies.

There was a similar post about this which I posted last December 2011.  We should revisit instead :) Enjoy!

Swan

The majestic beauty of a swan serenely floating on the waves can turn any natural setting into a lovely symphony…

And this is a very good film to watch :) Believe me, I was completely moved while watching  this movie.  I was so touched I even cried in the end… I have felt it. Actress Natalie Portman  portrayed her role as Nina Sayers, The Black Swan so perfect, as she said it in the ending… “It was perfect!” She really deserved to have won both the 2011  Golden Globe Award and the Academy Award  for Best Actress. Watch it and 100% you’d agree with me too… :)

The Black Swan

and would you like to make an origami swan? Here is a very simple demo how to make one.  But I didn’t quite get it.  The instructress is somewhat very swan herself :)

Or better we should just all listen to this beautiful Black Swan sountrack ” A Swan Song” by Clint Mansel

But before you do that, always have your favorite cup of coffee with you :)

Happy Weekend Everyone!

mmwahhh!

A Fire Waterfall @ Yosemite National Park–BEAUTIFUL!

A rare sight!! 

Yosemite National Park, California , USA 
This park was published as a national park in 1890.  It is world famous for its rugged terrain, waterfalls and century-old pine trees (Sequoia).  It covers 1200 sq km and the “fire” waterfall of El Capitan is one of the most spectacular of all the scenery.

The spectacular view of the waterfall is created by the reflection of sunlight hitting the falling water at a specific angle. This rare sight can only be seen at  a 2-week period towards the end of February.  To photograph this rare event, photographers would often have to wait and endure years of patience in order to capture them.  The reason is because it’s appearance depends on a few natural phenomenon’s occurring at the same time, and just plain luck.

1st, is the formation of the waterfall.  The water is formed by the melting of snow and ice at the top of the mountain.  It melts between the month of December and January and by the end of February there might not be much snow left to melt.

2nd, is the specific angle of the sun’s rays hitting the falling water.  The sun’s position must be exactly at a particular spot in the sky.  This occurs only in the month of February and at the short hours of dusk. If it is a day full of clouds or something blocking the sun, you can only take pictures of a darkened waterfall.  It coincides with the fact that the weather in the National Park at that time of the year is often volatile and unpredictable.  It compounds to the difficulty of getting these pictures.  Usually permission has to be allowed to enter the park that time of year, as dangerous road conditions could be hazardous to travel.

Someone did and we all get to see it.

WOW!  I can only imagine seeing it in real life ! 

:)
