~Rare Breed?

Sometimes I think we have a rare kind of breed!
See for yourself, What do you think?
Maybe descendants of a treegoat? hihihi

Soms denk ik wel eens dat we een apart soort hebben!
Kijk zelf maar, Wat denken jullie?
Misschien afstammelingen van een boomgeit? hihihi

Have an Enchanting Sunday!

~Again Little Ducklings

I had today a Surprice Attack
Our Duck Mijntje has hatched 7 Ducklings,
And REMY is the Father, again!

I can not take pictures yet,
Mijntje won’t allow me to…
so above is a picture from her last nest in May


Onze muskuseend Mijntje heeft weer kuikentjes,
tjonge, dat was een verrassing,
ze had een nieuw nestje gemaakt met 16 eitjes
en daarom hadden wij de meeste eitjes er
weer uitgehaald en weggegooid,
zodat ze er maar een 3tal overhield, dus de verrassing
was groot toen ik vanmorgen
7 stuks kleine pluizebolletjes zag rondlopen ;o)

Ik mag van moeders nog geen foto’s maken
dus vandaar alvast een foto van haar vorige nest
in Mei van dit jaar!!!


~Tea Party!

"Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you're at!
…Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.”
- Louis Carrol's Mad Hatter

Mad Hatter himself! Go call Alice and the March Hare –

you grinning like a Cheshire Cat.

Hey kids, shake it loose together
The spotlight's hitting something
That's been known to change the weather
We'll kill the fatted calf tonight
So stick around
You're gonna hear electric music
Solid walls of sound


Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
But they're so spaced out, B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets

Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful
Oh Bennie she's really keen
She's got electric boots a mohair suit
You know I read it in a magazine
B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets

Hey kids, plug into the faithless
Maybe they're blinded
But Bennie makes them ageless
We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
To find who's right and who's wrong

From the movie 27 Dresses
with Katherine Heigl.



~Swan Lake!


Hé, Houden jullie van Ballet?
Moet je nou toch eens even deze clip bekijken 
Hebben jullie wel eens zoiets gezien?

Do you like the Ballet?
and Ever seen such as this?
Just Wonderful!!!

Antoni Plàcid Guillem Gaudí i Cornet
was born 5 June 1852
and died 10 June 1926.. He was a Spanish architect
who worked during the Modernisme (Art Nouveau)
period but became famous for his unique and
highly individualistic designs regarded as beyond
the scope of Modernisme.

He is sometimes referred to, in English,
by the Spanish translation of his name,
Antonio Gaudí.
He studied at the Escola Superior d'Arquitectura
in Barcelona and designed his first major
commission for the Casa Vincens in Barcelona using
a Gothic Revival style that set a precedent
for his future work.


Antoni Plàcid Guillem Gaudí i Cornet
werd geboren in Reus (Spanje) op 25 juni 1852 
en is gestorven in Barcelona op 10 juni 1926,
Hij was een Spaanse architect.
Hij ontwierp rond 1900 een aantal markante
gebouwen en andere objecten in Barcelona en
daarbuiten, waarvan de Sagrada Família de bekendste is.
een kathedraal gebouwd in opdracht van
conservatieve katholieken. In 1914 besloot Gaudí,
die op latere leeftijd niet meer sterk tegen de kerk
gekant was -integendeel, alleen nog maar aan de
Sagrada Familia te werken. Soms ging hij zelf langs
de deuren om geld op te halen voor de bouw ervan
en in zijn laatste jaren woonde hij zelfs op het bouwterrein.
Aan de kerk wordt tot op de dag van vandaag gebouwd.

He once said on the subject of gothic architecture:

Gothic art is imperfect, it means to solve;
it is the style of the compass, the formula of
industrial repetition. Its stability is based on the
permanent propping of abutments: it is a defective body
that holds with support… gothic works produce
maximum emotion when they are mutilated,
covered with ivy and illuminated by the moon.


Aan het begin van de 20e eeuw creëerde Gaudí het Park Güell.
Behalve de gebouwen ontwierp hij veel van de mozaïeken!

  Over the course of his career, Gaudi developed
a sensuous, curving, almost surreal design style which
established him as the innovative leader of the
Spanish Art Nouveau movement. With little regard for
formal order, he juxtaposed unrelated systems and
altered established visual order.
Gaudi's characteristically warped form of Gothic
architecture drew admiration from other avant-garde artists.



 HERE you find a list of Gaudi Buildings!

Hij wordt beschouwd als een van de grondleggers
van de organische architectuur. Zijn werk valt onder
de Art Nouveau/Jugendstil. In Catalonië wordt deze
stijl het
Modernisme catalá genoemd.

~Oak Tree

Oak trees come out of acorns,
no matter how unlikely that seems.
An acorn is just a tree's way back into the ground.
For another try.
Another trip through.
One life for another.

How do you think I sleep at night?


~Sunday Girl

I know a girl
From a fantasy
A world of rainbows and mystery
Close your eyes
Sunday Girl

Hey, I saw your guy
Under the apple tree
He said hold tight and come with me
Run and fly
Sunday Girl

Hurry up
Hurry up and wait
Until the sun comes up
And breaks the day
Cherry trees
And honey bees
Won't you come and hide with me

She can catch up
With the fireflies
Dance across the blueberry skies
Live in dreams
Sunday Girl

Baby, meet me under the stars tonight
Think I've got something you might like
Come with me
Sunday Girl

Hey, I saw your guy
Under the apple tree
He said hold tight and come with me
Run and fly
Sunday Girl

Hurry up
Hurry up and wait
Until the sun comes up
And breaks the day
Cherry trees
And honey bees
In our world of make believe

Hurry up
Hurry up
Hurry up and wait

My sky is blue
Please please
Please come see
What you do to me
My sky is blue
My Sunday Girl

Coccinellidae is a family of beetles, known variously
as ladybirds or ladybugs (North America).
Scientists increasingly prefer the names ladybird beetles
or lady beetles, as these insects are neither birds nor bugs.
Lesser-used names include ladyclock, lady cow, and lady fly.


Coccinellids are small insects, ranging from
1 mm to 10 mm (0.04 to 0.4 inches), and are
commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black
spots on their wing covers, with black legs,
head and antennae. A very large number of coccinellid
species are mostly, or entirely, black, grey, or brown
and may be difficult for non-entomologists to recognize
as coccinellids. Conversely, there are many small beetles
that are easily mistaken for coccinellids,
such as the tortoise beetles.

Most coccinellids are beneficial to gardeners in general,
as they feed on aphids, scale insects, mealybugs, and mites.

ladybugLadybugThe ladybird was immortalised in the still-popular
children's nursery rhyme Ladybird, Ladybird:

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home
Your house is on fire and your children are gone
All except one, and that's Little Anne
For she has crept under the warming pan.

Most coccinellids overwinter as adults, aggregating
on the south sides of large objects such as trees or
houses during the winter months, dispersing in response to increasing day length in the spring.
In Harmonia axyridis, eggs hatch in 3–4 days from
clutches numbering from a few to several dozen.
Depending on resource availability, the larvae pass
through four instars over 10–14 days, after which
pupation occurs. After a teneral period of several days,
the adults become reproductively active and are able
to reproduce again, although they may become
reproductively quiescent if eclosing late in the season.
Total life span is 1–2 years on average.

A Great Animation Movie about a misfit ant,
looking for "warriors" to save his colony from greedy
grasshoppers, recruits a group of bugs that turn
out to be an inept circus troupe.
The story of A Bug's Life is a parody of Aesop's
fable of The Ant and the Grasshopper.


~Dierendag/ Animal Day

World_Animal_Day_Logo wasbeer
(ook: Werelddierendag) is een dag die
wereldwijd op de agenda staat als een moment
waarop extra aandacht wordt besteed aan de dieren.
Dierendag valt jaarlijks op 4 oktober.
Met het vieren van deze dag wil men mensen laten weten
dat dieren rechten hebben en dat zij beschermd moeten worden.

sayin aaaaaaahh
De datum van dierendag gaat terug naar de feestdag
van Franciscus van Assisi (4 oktober).
Hij bekommerde zich om het lot van melaatsen,
zwervers en andere armen, maar ook van planten en dieren.
Volgens de legende kon hij met dieren praten.

Ilse Winter uit Brno in Tsjechië schreef in mei 1927
een brief, waarin ze voorstelde om één dag per jaar
speciaal aan de dieren te denken, naar Margaret Ford
in Londen. Ford was voorzitster van de wereldvereniging
van de dierenbescherming.
Zij vond het een prachtig idee en de beide dames kwamen
overeen dat de feestdag, waarop de Katholieke Kerk
Franciscus steeds herdenkt een goede datum voor zo'n
dierendag zou zijn. Tijdens een internationaal
congres van verenigingen voor de bescherming van
dieren in 1929 in Wenen werd 4 oktober uitgeroepen tot Werelddierendag. De eerste dierendag was op 4 oktober 1930.

   sheep and lambturtle   
World Animal Day is celebrated each year on 4 October.
It started in Florence, Italy in 1930 at a convention
of ecologists. On this day, animal life in all its forms
is celebrated, and special events are planned on
locations all over the globe. 4 October was originally
chosen for World Animal Day because it is the
feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and
patron saint of animals and the environment.
Numerous churches throughout the world observe the
Sunday closest to 4 October with a Blessing for the Animals.

Be good to your Pets!
Wees goed voor je Dieren!

There is more to come!!!
