Bengal Cat Cares for Autistic Boy

Original YT playout date: 19 June 2010
Duration: 6:14

There are various animal therapies offered to autistic children – hippotherapy (which involves horses, not hippos, by the way), kynotherapy (known in Polish as “dogotherapia” as otherwise the carers might take them to the cinema instead of giving them King Charles Spaniels to play with, and even dolphins are pressed into service to give animal therapies to autistic children. What you don’t read about is cat therapy for autistic kids – well, it stands to reason, doesn’t it? Cats have autistic characters themselves, how are they going to help kids who are autistic interact?

Well, maybe because of that, they’re actually on the right wavelength to understand. Here see for yourselves how Pushkin has a relationship with my son George which seems to enrich both of them. Whenever he leaves the house, Pushkin follows him around and looks after him – but when a spider appears, the race is on and the fastest of the two gets the treat!

virus.exe

Original YT playout date: 23 May 2010
Duration: 5:01

Virus Attacks – what are they and how do they work? If they enter with an .exe file, do they exit with a .inte file? They’ve got proteins, they’ve got algorithm, they’ve got host cell, they can’t ask for anything more. And yet they do. They enter the host cell, which may be a bacterium, someone’s head or their computer with a payload, wrapped in a shell wrapped in a conundrum, which is either dangly legs hanging down to grab the bacterium or an email subject header repeating your name from your email so that you think it is from someone who knows you, even though you can’t remember any Norbert Y. Dinkleberry.

There’s only one way to find out, whether members of your family like butter. Don’t just ask them of course, just chase them around the house with a buttercup in the time-honoured fashion.

Duration: 44:30

It’s that time of year, so we get around the tree and get opening the presents. But of course we remember the greatest gift of all. That usurper Santa Claus has no place in our household, we know that we are giving each other presents to celebrate that God Himself came into the world in human flesh to save us.

Features “”Bozhe khrani svoyikh””, by Zhanna Bichevskaya.

Words by G. Ponomarev.

Here are the chords (per amdm.ru)

Fm Fm+7 Fm7 Fm6
Если терпения нет и сил
Eb Ab F7

Боже, храни Своих
Bm Fm
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
C Fm C
Боже, храни Своих

Бога, Христа и пречистую Мать
Взыскивай каждый миг
Если начнут на крестах распинать
Боже, храни Своих

Дар искупительный жертвы Царя
Верой твоей постиг
За катастрофу и от Октября
Боже, храни Своих

В страшном смертельном пленении знай
И повторяй как стих
Верных Христу ожидает рай
Боже, храни Своих

Обворовало народ мой зло
Отняли имя у них
И национальность и дали число
Боже, храни Своих

Нынче у Русских коварный враг
Грабит и жрет за троих
Враг как всегда обратится в прах
Боже, храни Своих

(далее в Gm)

Gm Gm+7 Gm7 Gm6
Русская сила взойдет в зенит
F B G7
С нами архистратиг
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D G7
Боже, храни Своих
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D Gm D
Боже, храни Своих

Станет душа как родник чиста
Тайн приобщившись святых
За сохраненную веру Христа
Боже, храни Своих

Тула, Владимир, Курск и Рязань
Сонм городов дорогих
Просятся руки на правую брань
Боже, храни Своих

Если терпения нет и сил
Если лукавый лих
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
Боже, храни Своих”

The rooks, the horse, the cat and the snowman

Original YT playout date: 3 March 2009
Duration: 14:18

The rooks come home to rest, and I take my kids to their horse therapy. Later on we see our balcony snowman and discuss how the comments of a few morons led to my needing to take down a successful film. Between these morons on the one hand and morons like Warners on the other, I am losing material these days almost as fast as I can put it up.
