"I'm insane." "I will get eaten by a bear." "I really am insane." Thoughts I've had almost daily over the past two years (especially after watching...
Playing fetch or taking a leisurely walk in the park doesn't seem to be enough for these clever creatures! Watch as they enjoy activities that are normally reserved for humans, such as skateboarding, "working" at the office or enjoying a nice bowl of soup. You won't be able resist laughing as you watch these adorable animals take on the tasks of their beloved masters.
The frontier land in the desert, the last bit of North American soil and rocks, the tall cliffs is where the greenish Rio Grande calmly slithers against the massive mountains separating the two lands, Mexico and the USA.
You may think that she has nothing to teach you, that bear skills and human skills (especially human artist skills) are completely separate things. Sure... you both pick the occasional berry, but other than that you live in pretty separate worlds. There's where you'd be wrong.
Miley seemed to fall in love with all the sights and creatures we saw, and we all had great fun learning and singing -- loudly -- some Native songs. Several times during our trip, Miley told us it was the best day of her life. For a gal who's been around the world, that's saying something.
Two animal videos caught my attention this week, with very different outcomes for the humans involved.
The movie adaptation of A Walk in the Woods is on solid footing with Bill Bryson's chronicle of the struggles, discomforts, and deprivations he endured -- and gratifications he derived -- as he explored the Appalachian Trail in the spring and summer of 1996. The book conveys the trepidations he experienced -- the perils encountered, and imagined.
Blaze, a mother bear who was killed -- not euthanized -- by park employees in Yellowstone National Park after she killed and partially ate an intruding human, has become the "poster bear" for all that is wrong with killing a mother with young cubs at her side.

Black bears fall into food comas just like the rest of us. On Saturday, a Florida resident found a large black bear snoring out on her lawn. Turns out the animal discovered a 20-pound bag of dog food in a neighbor's garage, dragged it out to the front yard and devoured it in one sitting reports WFTV.
It might be hard to accept that someone's pet earns more money than you do -- but unless you're really rich, it's true. From internet sensations, to movie stars, to commercial actors, to print models, cats, dogs and animals of all stripes have raked in millions -- or even tens of millions -- for their owners.
I think that what destroys me when I look at this image is the depth of despair of the bear who cannot understand his circumstances and will never escape them, and remembering that I saw bears just like this one during my childhood.
Vaginal Mesh, Vaginal Sling, Bladder Mesh, Bladder Sling. I have heard these 8 words over the last three months more than I have heard my own name spoken over my 60 years on earth. I don't know what they are.
Dad Bods aren't a new trend, at least not with the always-ahead-of-the-curve Gays. Gay men have been celebrating their stout brethren for decades, declaring definitively that Fat + Hairy ≠ Undateable. They're called Bears, and I want to officially welcome you to the party!
