Mari, My Mariana Mallard – YouTube

Found on the watery south side Talakaya, this young fledgling female Mariana Mallard was picked up roadside due to her inability to fly. She’s now recovering, growing up, getting used to her new surroundings and new ducks, and waiting for the day she’ll spread her wings and fly off to new adventures.

Mari took flight in the early dawn hours on November 22.  She first circled our home then took off on her freedom journey.


Here is Mari and Taffy.  Taffy is my 3 yr. old muscovy female duck.  I absolutely adore her.♥

Move Your Body!

“It’s all about promoting the benefits of healthy eating and exercise, but what we want to do is make it fun by doing something that we all love to do. And that’s dance.” -Beyonce

Go Daddy vs The Elephant

Bob Parsons’ hunting fee helped the economy there, one way or another, and helped local farmers eradicate a very destructive elephant.

The elephant also provided the villagers lots of good eating meat, although it was not enough to sustain the village.

These folks are very poor, can’t afford major crop loss, and could use the meat.

It’s either: save the elephant that continually destroys villager crops, resulting in famine, or save the crops and fatten up the villagers.
