Fun time in the snow!

Are you going to have snow for Christmas?

Here in Oklahoma we’ve had a very mild winter with no snow so far. I don’t mind if we do get some snow though…just like these creatures don’t mind it. Some of the are having a blast in the snow!

Have you tried the new Gingerbread Cookie Kit Kat?

Did you even know that Hershey’s made a Gingerbreat Cookie Kit Kat bar?

They were introduced this year for the Christmas holiday and I just discovered them a week or so ago. I do not like the peppermint and candy cane candies you see this time of year so I was very excited to find this treat!

Instead of a chocolate covering/filling the Kit Kat bar is covered with a gingerbread-flavored creme. I’m such a fan of these that we purchased four bags to get us through December. I just might have to buy a few more bags on my next grocery store trip, LOL.

If you like gingerbread cookies and Kit Kats, I highly recommend you buy some of these before they are gone!

See the many creatures that use a wildlife “highway”

From Voyageurs Wolf Project comes a video that shows a beaver dam in northern Minnesota and the many wildlife creatures that use the dam as a “highway.”

From the video description:

“This video is a compilation of the wildlife that crossed a beaver dam just south of Voyageurs National Park from March 2019-April 2020. This video was literally a year in the making!

Beaver dams can be wildlife highways in boreal environments like the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem, allowing all sorts of wildlife to easily cross wetland habitats which might be otherwise difficult to get across.”

Enjoy!

What’s your favorite Christmas movie?

We all have our favorite Christmas movies. The movies (all decades old, for me) we watch year after year, even knowing every scene and every ending.

Here’s a few of mine:

This one is for the guys (I love this movie, too)!

Why haven’t we seen more of this?

Remember in 2017 when a professor’s kids interrupted his live BBC TV interview?

With so many people being quarantined/working from home during the past almost two years, I’m surprised we haven’t seen more interviews end up like this!

Happy Friday!

Winston finds a friend!

Meet Winston, a miniature steer who lives at Delmar Farm. The farm is a equine and farm animal sanctuary in Florida that is home to horses, donkeys, pigs, goats, sheep, a cow, dogs and a barn cat.  The majority of their animals are rescues, special needs, seniors or have been donated.

Delmar obtained Winston when he was two months old. He had a hard time making friends on the farm until he met Ronny!
