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.

Good evening!

@ Mervi

Our lesson was very interesting. First aid. What I'm doing, when I find a helpless person? Stroke? How I can use a Defibrillator?
Tomorrow we have a Meeting in our team.
Perhaps it will be boring. :Das

@ Britta-Gudrun
Ich freue mich, dass du einen schönen Tag hattest.

Hier in Berlin soll es in der Nacht und auch morgen regnen. Vielleicht bekommen wir einen Fingerhut voll ab.
I wish you all a pleasant evening!

Chris - I hope you could make a biking tour even though the humidity doesn't make the weather conditions very pleasant.

Britta-Gudrun - I'm glad to hear you had a good time with your friends. - I think it's fine, too, not to keep breeding polar bears unless there are good plans for their future. This season there shouldn't be many cubbies - maybe in Orsa or/and Copenhagen ....

Guten Abend!
Ich hatte einen schoenen Tag mit meinen Freundinnen und
essen in Gesellschaft ist immer schoen.

Hier regnet es jetzt sehr stark aber ohne Gewitter.
Chris, ich hoffe, ihr bekommt endlich auch mal richtig viel Regen.
Bei mir wird die Wiese schon wieder etwas gruen.

Ich wuensche allen noch einen gemuetlichen Abend und schaue jetzt ins KWM

Ralph & Mervi, ja es wird spannend, wann und in welche Zoos die jungen Baeren kommen. Ich finde es gut, wenn auch mal eine Zuchtpause eingelegt wird.

We had some light drops of rain,
but not enough, to make the
ground wet - the drought goes on.
We´ve very hot and humid air today.
Not the ideal weather for a biking tour,

Ralph - Even UlliJ has an excellent site with lots of information of polar bears and their 'history'. You'll find the link in KWM (Polar Bears in Zoos). It was unnecessary to invent the wheel once again because there are sites with so much information. :D

Ludmila - Ice coffee sounds good!

Chris - I hope the thunder doesn't 'attack' you during the tour!

Knuti-Judi - Cool paw waves over the pond! :D

The hot weather ist back.
We await some thunderstorms
in the evening - hopefully with rain.

I´ll have a longer tour later in the evening.
Now I am on my way to KWM. I wish
everybody a pleasant Hump-Day!

Hello friends at coffee time!
If you want to know vita of the polar bears, watch to UliS. She collected many informations about polar bears in the zoos.
The Breeding Book of the polar bears is in the zoo Rostock. The European coordinator sits in the Netherlands :)
I wish you a nice Hump Day
I drink Ice Herkules today

In the first sentence of my story about Malik, I wrote ?like her mother, Victoria in Scotland?.
Molly Merrow has explained to me that Malik is not related to Victoria. I had confused Malik with Milak, Victoria?s first cub, who is now in St Felicien in Canada. Malik?s mother was Nuka, born in Aalborg. Malik is thus not related to any other European Zoo bears making her very valuable genetically.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - weekend shopping is already done! :D

Britta-Gudrun - What a great idea to have a birthday dinner in Saarbrücken. I wish you and your friends a pleasant day!

Yeo - I'm sure you will be a very smart girl after the 'school day'! Please, try to stay awake! :D

Teddybärenmutti - I hope your car passed the service without problems - aber ES IST TEUER!

Ludmila - I'm here for a pot of Herkules and I really need it after the shopping.

Ralph - This year we have a different situation with many cubs. They can stay in their current homes much longer than usual because there are no males. This is possible in Ranua, Munich and Aalborg! It will be interesting to know where the cubs will go when the time comes and, of course, it will be interesting to see if the zoos will get new males later on.

In Aalborg Ralph has wonderful meetings with the polar bears and even Birgit was warmly welcomed by Qintana when she visited Hellabrunn. Her report is now in KWM.

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

It is nearly a week since I was last in the Library so I have been catching up on Knutis Weekly as well.
It is exciting to wonder what will happen to Charlotte, Quintana, Nuka and Quilaq. They are all living in Zoos where they could stay as there is enough room for them. I would be interested to know how the authors of the Breeding Book in the Netherlands arrange the bear moves.

Lieber fluffiger Engel!

Danke fuer Glueckwuensche. Wir waren gestern in restauran. Es liegt gegenueber Turkuer Dom. Heute ist Autoservice angesagt. Ich wartete Antwort von Autoservice. Es sollte nicht sein, aber mit Autos ist es immer rätselhaft. Wenigstens die Summe von Service.
Danac beginnen wir unsere Reise nach Ähtäri Zoo und Pandas zu vorbereiten.
Herkules ist ferig. Wetter ist sehr angenehm.

Good morning!

@ TBM und TBV
Herzlichen Glückwunsch nachträglich zum 42. Hochzeitstag!

@ Britta-Gudrun
Vielen herzlichen Dank für den Herkules! Du hast Recht. Eine Reise bedeutet auch immer viel Stress. Da bringen Ausflüge wesentlich mehr Erholung.
Ich wünsche dir viel Spaß heute mit deinen Freundinnen.

Heute ist ein wunderschöner und sonniger Tag. Schade, daß ich schon mittags wieder zur Arbeit muss. Aber ich habe eine Weiterbildung und brauche in der Zeit nicht herumzulaufen.

I wish you all a pleasant Hump-Day!

The so called Bank Holiday yesterday and over the weekend had me occupied and I have not been here or in KWM for a while. It is a week to go before I go to Berlin and Gelsenkirchen.
I will raise a glass to TBM and TBV.

Teddybärenmutti - Is it your wedding anniversary today? In that case - Happy anniversary!

Britta-Gudrun - I think we can celebrate the 'come-back' of Autumn with an IC! :D

Ludmila - Is Speedy still outdoors or has he moved to a warmer place?

Knuti-Judi - The duckies are delighted to have your company! :D

Chris - Enjoy your tour in the woods!
