Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - we have a nice Spring/Summer day again!

Yeo - Hello early bear! :D I hope the breakfast was to everybody's satisfaction.

Britta-Gudrun - The new movies almost always disappoint me. Maybe I'm too old to enjoy all the special effects ..... there are too much of them in my opinion. I'm not so interested in how a giant tomato attacks the earth. :D :D

In KWM you'll find MoniK's report from Tiergarten Nürnberg with lots of cuties and, naturally, the latest information of VERA AND NANUQ!

I wish everybody a pleasant Friday!

Einen sonnigen guten Morgen am Freitag!

Ralph, dein Vergleich der Baeren mit den Hollywood Stars stimmt.
Ich habe zu den aktuellen Stars gar keine Emotionen mehr, weil mich ihre
Filme, sofern sie ueberhaupt im TV gezeigt werden, kaum begeistern.
Wahrscheinlich ist es auch wegen meines Alters, in dem man nicht mehr so begeisterungsfaehig ist....Auch Neuverfilmungen von ehemaligen großartigen Filmen koennen nach meinem Empfinden nicht an das Original tippen.

Ich wuensche einen schoenen Tag!

Ralph - You're right, the so called movie stars today can't compare to our polar bears! They simply lack the charm and personality of the 'old stars' - and the polar bears. :D

Yeo - I wish you a good night sleep so you'll be 'fit' for another working day tomorrow!

Guten Abend allerseits!

Heute bin ich ziemlich spät man Hause gekommen und morgen muss ich ganz früh anfangen. Die alten Leute haben schon im Spaß gemeint, ich kann doch auf Arbeit übernachten.
Wenigstens habe ich dann ab Mittag Feierabend.

@ Monika
Vielen Dank für deine schöne Fotoserie über katjuscha, Tonja und Herta! 💕

Ich wünsche euch allen einen schönen Abend. 🍷🥂

I have been looking at the pictures in the papers of the film stars gathering in Cannes. Of course the real stars-Flocke and Raspi are just down the road in Antibes.
Orsa of course like HWP and YWP is in a special class. The pictures we get from Orsa and Ranua put them in the top class.
Sadly there are no Hollywood stars left who can compare with Katjuscha and Antonia- Marlene Dietrich and Bette Davis are long gone. As for the younger ones, they can hardly compare with Tonja, Frimas, Lara and Lynn. Pola! is a lot more impressive than Hola! It is also true of the men. Victor or Kap can give Clint Eastwood or Robert Redford a run for their money..

Britta-Gudrun - There's some maintenance work going on in flickr, that's why you only see the panda when you click the link in Gudrun's report. It will work again later today.

Ralph - Thank you for the emails! I've started 'fixing' the photos and I could see they are all very nice!! - I can only sign what you wrote in your comment! What a pity Orsa is so far away - you would love the enclosures. That 'Polar World' really lives up to the name! I've tried to present it in my reports but it's impossible to show it any photos. The area is so big but there are still very good possibilities for the visitors to see Wilbär, Ewa and Hope.

Teddybärenmutti - Thanks for the Herkules! I hope you can find some time for yourself, too!

Knuti-Judi - Happy 'Almost Friday' to you! :D

Lieber fluffiger Engel!

Heute ist es etwas kuehler. Es ist gut. Hier war es zwei Wochen wirklich heiss. Ventilator wurde wie Sommer 2018 alles verkauft. Es klappte und zwei kaufen und zwei sind besstellt. Wir hatten solche schon, aber in voriges Sommer ginngen sie zum Schluss kaputt.
Ich habe wieder etwas zuviel mit mama zu organisieren. Ich bin einfach muede, dass fast jeden Tag kommt etwas unerwartet.
Mervi - Es freut mich, dass sie in Copenhagen schöne Zeit hatten.
Herkules ist fertig.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the weather is fine and the birds are singing!

I have a thousand things to do so I just say 'hello' and write more later.

Britta-Gudrun, Ralph - I'll be back to you!

In KWM you'll find Gudrun's report from the TALLINN ZOO. I wish everybody a pleasant TDT!

Mervi I sympathise with the lack of feedback on Knutis Weekly, but I notice that most people on Facebook hardly ever comment on the interesting stories.
I am finding that visiting Facebook uses up too much of my Knuphone pay as you go limit so I am very grateful for the KWM and Knuipe and will only use Facebook in the Library.
Sadly the Chinese have used their political power to insist on "appropriate" conditions for the Pandas. At least Copenhagen have not gone as overboard as Berlin.
The Arctic Ring rather like Hagenbecks Arctic World disappointed me because too much room has been given the visitors and "teaching aids" and not enough to the animals, especially the Polar Bears. Bremerhaven and Aalborg have used their smaller spaces much better, though they could use some grass. Rostock seems to have got the mixture best, as I found even Hellabrunn smaller than I expected.
Berlin really needs to work out where and how it wants to show its bears. I would suggest concentrating the Polar Bears in the Tierpark and using the space freed in the Zoo to bring brown bears back. Though with money and good design both Zoo and Tierpark could have more bears!
I do like Pandas and understand their importance, but Polar Bears need more dimensions to live and share their excitement with us. Both in Wuppertal and Berlin I noticed the awe on little children's faces when the Polar Bears dive and jump and climb.

Guten Morgen!

Heute maeht der Gaertner meine halbe Blumenwiese, die andere Haelfte bleibt fuer die Bienen stehen und weil dort im Baum noch Jungmeisen gefuettert werden, die hoffentlich erfolgreich ausfliegen werden.

Mervi, leider funktioniert bei mir der Link bei Gudrun nicht zu dem Zooalbum in Tallinn,
ich sehe nur die Zeichnung eines Panda - vielleicht liegt es auch an meinem Laptop.
Ja, du hast Recht, den Pandas wird ueberproportional Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt, aber das sind die Zoobetreiber selbst schuld.

Bei sonnigem Wetter wuensche ich euch einen schoenen Donnerstag!

Britta-Gudrun - The new enclosure is bigger and greener. However, the water may be too deep for Imaq for the time being. I don't understand why there isn't a mulch bed or something like that in the old enclosure. It would make it a little more pleasant for Lynn and her daughter. The giant panda business is making me really angry - it's the same story everywhere. I have nothing against pandas but it's not OK that the zoos build expensive enclosures for them and almost ignore other animals needing better living conditions!

Knuti-Judi - Seeing Imaq for the first time was, of course, wonderful - even though the awful enclosure made me have mixed feelings.

Hallo am Nachmittag!

Mervi, ganz so entspannend war das Ergebnis der Augen-Untersuchung nicht, aber wenn die Beeintraechtigung nicht schlimmer wird, kann ich damit leben.

Gibt es im Kopenhagener Zoo ein groesseres Gehege in das Lynn mit ihrem Baby umziehen kann? Der Hype um die Pandas schraenkt die Gestaltung und Groesse der anderen Tiergehege ein, das ist nicht okay.

Hallo Patricia, wie geht es dir? Bist du schon umgezogen? Sende bitte, bitte mal ein kleines Lebenszeichen!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it's getting quite empty here these days ....

Britta-Gudrun - Sometimes our teams win, sometimes they loose! :D - I hope everything's OK with your eyes!

I have now published our report from Copenhagen - IMAQ STOLE OUR HEARTS in KWM. Well, frankly I don't know why I bother to publish anything because there seems to be very little interest ....

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

Guten Morgen!

Mervi, ich hoffe, du bist wegen des verlorenen Eishockeyspiels der finnischen Mannschaft nicht allzu traurig. Vielleicht troestet dich der Besuch beim Eisbaerchen in Kopenhagen ein bisschen.

Ich habe heute wieder einen Augenarzttermin - man goennt sich ja sonst nichts.

Annemarie, ich wuensche dir schoene Tage in Berlin!

It has been a warm day here in Oxford and I have been with my friend for some Staropramen beers. BN came too.
I have been putting together a short report on Gelsenkirchen for Knutis Weekly, which I will send Mertvi on Thursday.
The Berlin pictures were not so good, and I have decided that with so many good reports, I will leave the Berlin report. I am off to Denmark on 4 June, so am hoping to get some clues from Mervi before I go, as with any luck I will have the first day in Copenhagen.
