Watch this CAT Meet 50 Dogs at a Dog Show

Watch this CAT
Meet 50 Dogs at a Dog Show 

Watch what happens when 50 different dogs go nose to nose with Boomer (a CAT) The reaction of the dogs is priceless.
Thanks for subscribing and sharing our videos. FYI - I have 34 years experience as a professional animal trainer, please do not try this at home. If you'de like to learn how to teach your cat, watch my tutorials here on my YouTube channel (MORE BELOW)

Boomer is a (well trained) Bengal and although the breed is amazingly beautiful, they are not for everyone, 1st they are not lap cats & generally don't like to be held, as kittens they are extremely mischievous and a lot of time everyday has to be put in to exercise this breed. 

They are also escape artists and they are known to meow louder and more frequently than most breeds. I have a Bengal for professional purposes, after all I have over 34 years as a professional animal trainer. 

Many of the cat tricks or other behaviors you see in my videos I spent many hours, days, and months perfecting, don't try this at home.

Didga is a Moggy/Tabby from the shelter and is an amazing kitty and was easier to teach then Boomer. I'm not saying don't get one, just know the commitment that will be needed when bringing this breed into your home. or just live vicariously through me and my posts of Boomer.

The Brick Wall Illusion That’s Messing With Everyone’s Minds

The Brick Wall Illusion
That’s Messing With Everyone’s Minds
Can you spot what many are missing?

Nothing exciting about that, you may think. But take another look.

Go on, really look.  
Do you see anything unusual?

Don’t worry, you’re definitely not the only one to be perplexed.

Arron Bevin called the image one of the best optical illusions he’d seen when he posted it to Facebook on Monday.

 the answer will be revealed further down.
Now look at it again...
and try to spot the cigar that’s poking out from between two of the bricks... 
Aaaah, now you see it !!

Le Frigo du Désert - Zeer Potfrige Project

Le Frigo du Désert

Zeer Potfrige Project
Un frigo génial, économique et écologique

by Ema Sandron 31 mars
Lutter contre les effets du climat

Débrouille – Nigéria :
Efficace, voici ce que l’on nomme un Zeer pot. Un frigo écologique et pratique que le peuple du Nigéria utilise depuis des millénaires… qui va vous permettre de conserver des aliments frais quelque 10 fois plus longtemps que d’ordinaire pour deux sous et quatre centimes!

 Quel matériel vous faut-il?
  1. 2 pots en terre cuite non émaillés (un gros et un plus petit). Le gros pot fait 40 cm de diamètre intérieur. Le petit pot fait 25 cm de diamètre intérieur. La hauteur du gros pot est de 40 cm.
  2.  2 gros bouchons de liège si les pots en terre ont des trous
  3. Du sable.
  4. Un torchon pour couvrir le tout

 Comment faire?
  • Bouchez chaque trou des pots avec les bouchons en liège
  • Mettez environ 5 cm de sable au fond du grand pot
  • Placez le plus petit pot dessus (on le cale bien pour qu’il soit à la même hauteur que le gros pot)
  • Disposez le sable entre les deux pots.  (Il faut que le haut du sable soit environ 2 cm plus bas que le haut du pot intérieur, de cette façon, il sera facile et rapide d’arroser le sable 2 fois par jour sans risquer de mouiller le pot intérieur)
  • Bien tasser le sable.
  • Nettoyez le pot intérieur
  • Arrosez le sable, environ les 3/4 d’une bouteille d’eau
  • Laissez « refroidir » quelques heures avant d’y entreposer vos fruits et légumes.
J’ajoute : Sur la photo, il y a quatre pommes… séparez-les avec un morceau de carton placé verticalement. Et puis, voici encore un bon système à placer dans votre Walipini

Et voici une vidéo qui explique l’opération en anglais
mais les images parlent d’elles-mêmes.

No Electricity? No Problem! - Underground Fridge Requires No Electricity.

No Electricity?
No Problem!

This Underground Fridge Requires No Electricity.

The Groundfridge is an innovative take on the traditional root cellar. It meets the requirements of people with own vegetable gardens, who choose to live in a modern and self-sustaining way. Floris Schoonderbeek (founder of Weltevree) is continuously discovering and exploring new angles, chances and materials that he puts to user goods in order to improve and enrich our habitat. With the Groundfridge, he presents a means for global citizens who want to handle their food in an autonomous and independent way.

Groundfridge is an underground refrigerator that keeps food cool without electricity. An ingenious solution to reducing energy consumption (and the electricity bill!)

It looks a bit like the sort of bunker survivalists preparing for the worst would design. In fact it is a refrigerator, a modern version of a root cellar, in preparation not for the Apocalypse but for a more sustainable future. A future in which more and more of the world’s citizens will lead a self-sufficient and environmentally friendly lifestyle by living in passive (and even positive energy) houses and cultivating their own small vegetable gardens.

Unveiled in 2015 at the Milan Furniture Fair by the Dutch design firm Weltevree, Groundfridge is the fridge of the future. Producing cold uses a lot of energy, especially as a refrigerator is plugged in 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. A combined 290 liter class A fridge consumes about 350 kWh per year ! Groundfridge consumes nothing. This laminated polyester prefabricated refrigerator, buried underground, is completely autonomous. It uses the insulating properties of the soil and the cooling capacity of groundwater to keep food cool, maintaining a constant temperature of between 10 and 12°C throughout the year. Ideal for keeping fruit, vegetables, wine and even some cheeses. According to Weltevree, the Groundfridge’s 3000 liter capacity is equivalent to 20 standard fridges and can store 500 kg of food or the harvest from a 250 m2 vegetable garden. Enough to prepare 350 meals for a family of five!

Groundfridge is accessed by a small hatch and a narrow staircase that leads to the large fruit, vegetable and cheese pantry. Cover the top of it with grass and whenever get a tomato you’ll feel like you’re going into your very own Hobbit house.

Hand Feeding Hummingbirds

A hand fed Hummingbird video that is amazing. Taming the Alaskan hummingbird. These hummingbirds were filmed at our lodge in Alaska, no feeder required!
Our lodge in Alaska has TONS of these little birds in the summer. Did you know their heartbeat can be as high as 1200 beats per minute! Mother nature is amazing!
These adorable hummingbirds eat right out of our hands here at the lodge. While setting up the cameras for some more hand feeding, these two little hummingbirds gave us "the shot". Though I love the hummingbirds in Alaska, The majority only arrive after migrating from Mexico, looking for feeders along the way. Sometimes I wish we lived somewhere where we could watch baby hummingbirds in their nests. Some of those videos are amazing!
