Hi Peter

Yes mate, and on a different note which your comment reminded me of regarding humans, wouldn't you like to be the judge in an animal cruelty case? I sure would, and boy, would I come down hard!

Hi Myrna

Here's a picture of one of our Koalas having a siesta in the noonday heat, just for you! :)

Hello Peter,

You are right about many animals of the wild being more
hygienic than many humans.  Lots of animals wash themselves
as a regular routine.

Hello John,

Yes I remember the magpies back in New Zealand, they
were OK until mating and after their chicks were born, they
they could be real dangerous as they would swoop and dive
bomb anyone who came close to their nests.  They were quite
scary.  There was a saying, if you see one magpie look around
for its mate because there was always two around.

Yes there were a couple of people whom I knew had had magpies
as pets and came into their homes to eat - they still had the
freedom to leave but they chose to hang around.  I only heard
of one of these magpies that could talk, but had heard that
if you nipped the little piece of skin under its tongue it freed
the tongue enough to talk.

I have not seen magpies here in the States so I guess the
English did not import them here. - Nor fantails, which I just
loved back in NZ, they were such cute cheeky little birds and
flit and fly very close to you.  Are such nostalgia..

I have also heard that in the old days doctors would do this
little snip under the tongue to children due to being tongue
tied.  Now I am not sure what tongue tied is, whether it was stuttering or maybe their tongue was not as flexible and mobile that the majority of humans have.

Thanks John,

You are right I love it, now that is darling, I do think they are cute, also, but I just love animals.
