Not exactly wild, but a new African elephant was born Tuesday AM at the San Diego zoo & wild Animal Park.

IMO The tape shows that elephants are as social and caring as humans...maybe more so.

Now, we have to get elephants and big cats out of the damned circuses!  If a circus that uses animals ever plays near you...PICKET IT!

Hey Steph. Works good, I'm off this weekend. Going to garage sales with my daughter-in-law today, will be good. I just go with her so we can visit mostly, as I don't usually get anything :) .

Well, it froze/crashed thursday, spent yesterday mostly sitting on my hands while they tried to get it back up. you were able to sign on, and place orders, but they just kinda went into a black hole somewhere Couldn't find them once you put them in, then the program started running real, real slow, them kicked people out and finally stopped responding. Ah, modern science LOL! Well, gotta go. Getting ready to go out. Will talk with you later. Have a wonderful, beautiful weekend.
