Dear friends! Let's hope August will be the Summer month we can all enjoy! June and July have been far too hot. We've seen the red moon but now it's time to admire the traditional yellow August moon.

Ralph - I'm really glad you're saving so much stuff from KWM - just in case ..... :D It would have been great to visit Bärlin in September. We used to do that when Knut was still there and I have so many wonderful memories from those visits.

Teddybärenmutti - I'm sitting in our cosy Knugarden with a yammy drink. :D

Chris - Uncle Sergej is running to you with a drink! Cheers! :D

Wasja hat sich gut bei euch integriert. :)

MERVI - bei den Kommunalwahlen dürfen
hier die EU-Ausländer auch wählen. :)

I am at the Bar for a refreshing drink. :)
I´ve made a long tour through the woods.

RALPH - maybe you meet other people. :)
The polar-friends are united all over the world.

Onkel Sergej!

Es ist sehr warm. Auf dem Knuipe Veranda können wir etwas erfrischendes trinken.
Was wäre es.

Ralph - Tut mir leid, dass Du niemand von knuipe triffst.

I am back in the main Library in Oxford after a great couple of days. I have saved the wonderful KWM stories from August already on a USB stick.
I am sorry that I will not be seeing anyone from the Knuipe in Berlin next week. December is the usual Knuipe Berlin meeting, but I am worried that after the hot Summer we will have a cold Winter.
My continuing care is for Katyuscha in Berlin. She is such a wonderful Polar Bear. I remember chatting to Thomas Doerflein about her in 2007 and 2008. Of course Tosca was his favourite, but I think he understood the Icebearishness of Kati.
In saving KWM I am always delighted by the range and quality of the reports. In particular Ludmila and Uwe take us with them on photo stories that National Geographic or Geo would be delighted to publish.
Between now and Monday morning I will be on the Knuphone at home, so apologies for any odd comments

Chris - There are actually three elections - the Town council, the Region council and the Parlament. We can vote for the two first mentioned because we are Finnish Citizens. Of course, we can vote 'normally' in the Finnish elections. - The baby elephant is so tiny but it looks like the whole herd is there to protect her/him. It's wonderful to see!

Ludmila - I already mentioned the Nordic bears but I forgot Flocke and Raspi. Oh bear, there are still lots of possibilities. - I think Wasja has the same kind of appetite as our Mimmi. That's why it's easy to notice when Mimmi starts eating less or not at all.

I think in Europa are more possibilities for cubs: Flocke and Raspi, Ewa and Wilbär, Nord and Noel.
Wir haben heute gemerkt, dass Wasja ist breiter von hinten, als Ferdi. Ferdi nimmt immer ab im Sommer, Wasja har den ganzen Sommer gegessen, wie im Winter :)

LUDMILA - meinen Katzen geht es gut.
Sie schlafen viel und gehen kaum raus,
da sie schon alt sind. :)

MERVI - can you vote in Sweden as a Finn?
Normally EU-Citzens vote in their home land.

I am on my way to Ranzo und Nora in Vienna. :)

Ludmila - I wish Speedy a nice September and hope the weather will be 'his kind of tea'. :D - Oh yes, there are more 'cub chances' - I even forgot Nika and Victoria!

Britta-Gudrun - Mimmi and Nalle are looking for warmer napping places. The sign of the coming Fall. :D

Knuti-Judi - It's been raining all day so I'm glad I got everything done during the morning hours.

Hello friends at coffee time!
Wir haben noch kein Gras zum Mähen. Der Rasen ist noch braun. :)
Unsere Katzen lassen das Winterfell wachsen. Sie essen jetzt auch mehr als noch vor 2 Wochen.
I think Valeska in Bremerhaven can get a baby. It is possible that Victoria in Hamburg will get a baby too. Then Nika in the zoo Karlsruhe can get a baby from Kap.
How are your cats doing? Our cats were the whole night inside. It is no more hot outside.
Wie geht es Deiner Katze?

Guten Tag!

Mervi, ich waehle auch immer vor dem eigentlichen Wahltag. Ich kann meine Stimme direkt im Rathaus abgeben, das ist sehr angenehm.

Hier ist es auch grau und der gestrige Regen war richtig gut fuer die Natur,
aber fuer den Gaertner war es heute zu nass zum Maehen.

Ludmilda, euer Speedy hat noch ein bisschen Zeit bis zum Winterschlaf.
Django verliert zurzeit bueschelweise die Haare.

Habt einen schoenen Donnerstag!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - I'm very pleased with myself because I took care of two important things today.

I had to renew my ID card and we even voted today. The election day in Sweden is the 22nd of September but it's possible to vote in advance - we could do it in our library. It's good to have it done now!

Ralph - I almost forgot that Tonja might become mother again. For the time being there are lots of single ladies in the zoos but not so many males in suitable age. Well, we'll see what will happen. Maybe there will be some Russians in the zoos ....

Yeo, Ludmila - Now I'm ready for a pot of Herkules! :D

In KWM you'll find Evi's great article of NORA AND RANZO! I wish you all a very pleasant TDT!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
We had the rain in the night, it is still grey outside
Our Speedy is still in her pond. I hope she will stay outside till October.
Danke für Herkules

Mervi, Ludmila
Thanks for the information. I misheard Jeanette and the keepers and confused Malik and Milak.
I assumed everything was done in the Netherlands. Why is the coordination separate from the breeding book, very confusing to.me.
I am hoping there will be a break for the mother bears, but it would be nice for Tonja to rear and play with a healthy cub.

Maybe we will get the rain in the night.
We see often the spotted woodpecker at our work.
I take a drink of Uncle Sergej

Yeo - It's very useful to know how to give first aid to persons who are injured. There are defibrillators available in many places but there are not many people who know how to use them.

Chris - You were lucky again! You saw a black woodpecker and a Lizard, too! - Uncle Sergej is ready to serve you!

MERVI - it has cooled down a little bit.
But in my house its very pleasant. :)
Today I met the rare black woodpecker.
And a little lizard visited me at a bench,
where I had a rest from my tour.
I am at the bar for a drink. :)
