I am thinking of the enclosure in Wuppertal and the balance between the sealions and the Polar Bears. I think that with a bit of imagination and support from local companies, the Wuppertal enclosures could be made like those in Rostock and Munich.
Antonia was one of the first Polar bears that I visited in the Winter of 2006, before Knut.
I went to Zoom Gelsenkirchen on a rainy day. Ten years later I went back last year with Uli and Jochen. Antonia is a very special Polar Bear lady.

Ralph - You've met many of 'our bears' with your own eyes! When I watched the photos of Anori and Luka I again got an idea .... Wouldn't they be perfect for Rostock? :D

Britta-Gudrun - I wish you a great time at the birthday party!

Ludmila - I hope Anori and Luka will come together to a zoo where we can keep on following them.

Hello friends at coffee time!
Ich wünsche Dir eine schöne Feier
I think today on Antonia. She is a special lady.
Ich weiss nicht wie es in Wuppertal weiter gehen wird.
Wo bist Du?

Guten Tag ihr Lieben!

Allen Geburtstagsbären Happy Birthday!

Ich feiere heute mit meinen UNICEF-Freundinnen den 60. Geburtstag unser Arbeitsgruppe. Dazu sind wir im Rathaus Saarbrücken zu einem Festakt eingeladen.

See you later!

Just started saving the November KWM stories in the Library.
I was wondering why the keepers in Berlin who looked after Bao Bao were
not involved in looking after the two new Pandas. I know Lutz Sturmer was retired but the other chap, whose name I have forgotten is still there.
I will look at the photos of Anori and Luka later. I was lucky enough to see them last year with Uli and Jochen and know how much they care for the two bears,

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - many polar bears have birthday even today. Among the birthday bears are sweet Antonia and handsome Felix. Let's wish them both a very happy birthday!

Dumba - Thank you for the excellent breakast in the moonlight! :D

Chris, Ludmila - How wonderful to meet Anori and Luka again. They both look fantastic and they seem to be very good friends, too. My heart was singing when I saw them playing and fooling around. I hope, too, they can stay together!

Knuti-Judi, Christine, Sarsam - Are you making bargains on the Black Friday? :D Even in Sweden almost all the shops and malls are announcing Black Friday Sales.

In Bärenwald Müritz the bears are preparing themselves for the Winter nap. See and read more in Gisela's report in KWM.

I wish everybody a pleasant Friday - no matter if it's black or of another colour! :D I'm off to Ruka in Finland to attend the opening of the cross country skiing season.

Teddybärenmutti - I have problems with my email at the moment but I'll send you a mail as soon as it's possible.

Ralph - I have suggested WWF to add PayPal on the list of possible ways of donating.

Ludmila - I'm here for a Betthüpferl. Uncle Sergej recommended his 'Mail Man Special'. I hope it will solve the problems with my email. :D

I have an account with a German bank. It looks like your problem is about your banks.

Lieber fluffiger Engel!

Ich bin spät hier. Meine mama bedeutetmir sehr byrokratische Arbeit, als sie nach hause kam. Morgen wieder mehr.
Ludmila- ich will Dir e-mail schicken.

Dumba- Hast Du mein e-mail bekommt. E-mail mit Adressen kam. Danke.
Hier war heute sehr unangenehmes Wetter. Wind, Schnee, Wasser. was alles.
Jetzt brauche ich ein IC und dann ins Mulch.

Ludmila If you can tell me which bank in the United Kingdom you have an account with I will gladly take your advice and visit them. Suffice be it to say that I have accounts with three major UK banks and all charge a hefty fee for this service. As I normally use PayPal or Amazon for my overseas payments I do not need a credit card nor am I willing to hand over money to British banks who have my money on deposit and pay little or no interest. Hope that answers your question.

Ralph - I hope you've recovered well from the cold.

Dumba - The photo of Aika is very beautiful - just like we remember the sweet polar bear lady.

Inge - I guess there will soon be 'panda fever' even in Copenhagen. :D

Britta-Gudrun - There are so many days to remember ....

Chris - Mimmi is doing fine. She eats and drinks well.

Guten Abend

Wir hatten wieder sehr mildes Wetter mit 14°C.
Aber mich macht es irgendwie müde.
Es passt nicht zur Jahreszeit. :)

MERVI - ich hoffe, Mimmi geht es besser ! :)

Fein, dass du auch hier daran erinnerst.
Btw: in meinem immerwaerenden Geburtstagskalender stehen auch
schon immer mehr Todestage.....

Mervi, all the best wishes for Mimi.
Quite good weather here to-day. Sun in the morning and then grey. But not cold.
This evening in the Zoo to hear about the coming pandaes for the third time).

The everstarving are sleeping.
