Dear friends! The Christmas time is here again! We have already got some early gifts - small polar bear babies. Even though we know not all of them will make it let's hope for the best!

Of course, there's also a little Advent story to go with this thread:

Fiete's first Advent in Hungary

MERVI - Malik hat alle Tatzen voll, ihre Rasselbande zusammenzuhalten.
Tonjas Baby ist schon ganz schön gewachsen, das sieht gut aus! :)

Dumba - The tree looks very naked but that's how it should look this time of the year. :D I'm really looking forward to all the Christmas lights and decorations in the CCC!

Ludmila, Chris - I'm also nervous about Malik's cubbies but so far everything's looking good. After the births Malik was breathing very heavily but now she seems to be very calm. Hmm, she can't get much rest with the three tiny babies. There's always a run-away-cubbie she must return to mama's warmth. Here's a video from Aalborg:


And here's a video from the Tierpark Berlin. Tonja's baby is doing fine!


Ralph - Poor Bear With No Name! Carrying Mini-Kati's shopping must be quite a challenge! :D

Chris - It's wonderful to see Vienna and Tanya together. I hope they will be real good friends.

We had the real Kaiserwetter today. :)
Sunny with blue sky and frost at night.

Annemarie - ich hoffe, Du hast dich nicht überhoben!?

Ludmila, Mervi - i am very nervous about Maliks kids. :roll:
I hope one or two will make it, three is too much normaly.
Lets cross our fingers for the babies.

Ralph - I wish you a good flight to Berlin! :)

Yeo - ich hoffe, Du kommst bald wieder auf die Beine!

Just come from KWM and although I am disappointed that Ahpoun has not won a second term, the photos of Denali are super.
I must also thank Mervi for the Fiete story. I have visited Budapest twice and eaten well there. I have also met Fiete.
Preparations are in hand for my departure on Thursday. The Bear with no name is being given precise instructions by Mini-Kati on
how he is to carry her shopping. He says little. In case you are wondering why no Mini-Knut is coming to the tenth Birthday in Berlin I may have some surprises
in store.

MERVI - 'Oh joy!' like KNUDY uses to put it :) - See ya!!

Have a most good day! Hope you had a pleasant start in this new (working)week!
In the CCC it's quite chilly today but it's very clear and fresh air. Wonderful! - and the
last leaves remaining in the trees are reflecting the sun light so brilliantly - See:

Have pleasant occurrances in the course of the day.
See you later - perhaps . . :)

Hello friends at coffee time!
Nikolay in Alaska Zoo looks like Tommi :)
Uwe and I will come to Berlin too
How do you feel in your new office?
Today in the morning Ferdi decided to drink from the aquarium. Unfortunately Muffin sat on the dry place of Speedy and drunk too. They managed to drink together :) I was afraid the dry place will break, but everything went well.
How are you doing?

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - what can we do with a Berlin traveller's 'Reisefieber'? :D

Dumba - Only a couple of days to go until we meet again! :D

Inge - There seems to be a baby boom in the zoos in Denmark these days! The okapi, the chimp, the hippo babies in Copenhagen and, naturally, Malik's and Lars' three cubbies are all great miracles! - I hope you will meet the zoo kids during your next visit.

Ludmila - Thanks for the photos! So far Malik's cubs are doing fine!

Britta-Gudrun - As far as I know Annemarie, Bärgit, Inge, Ralph, Vesa and I will be representing our Knuipe in Bärlin. Of course, Dumba and Yeo are already there! :D

Teddybärenmutti - Thank you for the email. I'll answer it later today. I wish you and TBV a safe journey to Tampere.

Annemarie - I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll be feeling better soon! We're looking forward to meeting you so the Knupsmühle Sisters can sing together again. :D - Please, take care and don't carry too heavy things!

Yeo - I wish you a speedy recovery and hope you can still make it on Friday! It would be great to meet again.

Chris, Patricia, Dave, Leti, Filomena, Ralph, Knuti-Judi, Sarsam, Christine, Knutilda and everybody - Have a good start of this week!

In KWM you'll meet Denali - the new President of the Alaska Zoo! :D John Gomes has taken wonderful photos of him and his friend Nikolai.

Die Möbelstücke zu schleppen war sicherlich zu viel. Ich drücke die Daumen, dass Dir besser gehen wird schon heute.

It looks gut at Malik. I checked the situation today:

Hello, dear all!

Forgive me that I did not report so long.

@ Mervi
Dear Mervi, thank you very much for the wonderful Advent-Thread. The story about Fiete I will read later.

@ TBM und TBV
Ich wünsche Euch ganz viel Kraft und alles Gute!

I´m sad about Aikas lost and that we will never see this polarbear-Lady in the Berliner Tierpark.
R.I.P. Aika

Let´s keep cross the fingers for Maliks and Lars´newborn cubbies!
I look forward for the spring, when come Tonja out of the hole with her cub. :)

I've just come from the doctor and I've been sick all week. Now I'm afraid I can not come on Friday. I wish all Berlin-travelers a good trip and a nice time here!

Bin zuhause wieder ohne Telefonie und Internet (dank der T..k..), deswegen vom Office einen freundlichen Gruss an alle.

Mir schmeckt gerade der Herkules und ich habe auch eine grosse Schuessel mit Vanille-Kipferl auf den Tisch no 5 gestellt. Haut rein!

Mir macht meine Gesundheit ein (klein) wenig zu schaffen, aber ich bin immer noch 'guter Hoffnung', dass ich die freien Tage in Berlin ohne grosse Probleme ueberstehen werde (ich werde aber ein bereits geplantes Treffen zum Wochenende stornieren, damit mir nicht doch noch alles zu viel wird!).

Ich hatte zum WE Laub gefegt und ein paar Moebelstuecke vom Dachboden bis auf die Strasse geschleppt (wegen Sperrmuell!), das war wohl zu viel fuer Anstrengung, jedenfalls habe ich heute Muskelkater Beschwerden und Kraempfe .... Hoffentlich gibt sich das bald ....)

LG an alle!

Herkules is ready

Hallo Inge, sind das die ersten Babies von Malik?
Dann waeren drei wirklich eine Ueberforderung fuer sie, allein schon das Geschrei von kleinen Eisbären ist enorm belastend.
Dennoch alle guten Wuensche fuer die daenischen Eisbaerchen!

Mervi, wer kommt mit nach Berlin?

Es ist sonnig und kalt heute Morgen
TBM - ich denke ganz fest an euch

Patricia, Chapeau zum Erfolg mit der Antiraucher Therapie!
Ich muss dir aber widersprechen: Egal wie erfolgreich in Russland Jungbaeren aufwachsen.
Dass, was Mutter und Kind zeigen ist leider nicht normal.

Annemarie, wie geht es dir?
Hoffentlich bist du fit fuer Berlin.

Ich wuensche allen einen guten Wochenstart!

INGE - how nice, that you had a sunny day in the garden and the zoo.
I wish everybody a "Guts Nächtle" and a good start to the new week! :)

Mervi, very nice weather for the time being here in the cold north. I visited my little garden to put food in the feedingautomats for "my" gardenbirds. I took a cup of coffee in the garden in the sun together with "my" more or less tame craw. A highly intelligent bird who can all the tricks of how to fool a person sitting and eating. After that I went quickly through the Zoo. There was a lot of people in the fine weather and there were arrangements for kids too. Ivan was out. Nöel was not to be seen. The okapikid played hide and seek. A talented little guy. The newborn hippo was "behind" and by the apes there was really crowded. It must be next time I see the baby there.
I look forward to my price for being nr.1.

Chris, thanks for the link to Kai.

Filomena, my little "boy" has a voice like a" lion", and he really demands food very often, He is a little tyran.

Dumba, thanks for gretings.

Hallo Bärgit, Dave, Ludmila und Britta-Gudrun.

And now food for the - you know who.
