Safari South Africa, A Time-Lapse Film

My safari guides thought I was nuts taking thousands of photos each day so hopefully now they will understand ... This was my first trip to anywhere in the continent and it was eye opening. There are few things more thrilling than being woken up at 5:30 a.m. to the sounds of lions outside your tent.

The Colonel’s Call

The Colonel’s Call
The phone rang at the motor pool and an authoritative voice demanded to know how many vehicles were operational.

Paddy answered, "We've got twelve trucks, ten utilities, three staff cars and that Bentley the fat-arsed colonel swanks around in.”

There was a stony silence for a second or two. ''Do you know who you are speaking to?’'

''No,'' said Paddy.

''It is the so-called fat-arsed colonel you so insubordinately referred to.''

''Well, do you know who you are talking to?'' asked Paddy.

''No,'' roared the colonel.

''Well.  Thank goodness for that,'' said Paddy and hung up the phone.

Yellowstone National Park Proposes Killing 1,000 Bison

Yellowstone National Park
BILLINGS, Mont. — Yellowstone National Park proposes to kill roughly 1,000 wild bison this winter — mostly calves and females — as officials seek to reduce the animals' annual migration into Montana.

Park officials are scheduled to meet Thursday with representatives of American Indian tribes, the state and other federal agencies to decide on the plan.

It marks the continuation of a controversial agreement reached in 2000 between Montana and the federal government that was meant to prevent the spread of the disease brucellosis from bison to livestock.

Details in the StarTribune.
