Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E8 – Whipsnade Zoo part 1 of 2


 

Original YT playout date: 10 August 2008
Duration: 33:25

Whipsnade zoo is part of the Zoological Society of London’s set of world leading animal parks. It is an important conservation centre and part of the contemporary Noah’s Ark. It is also one of my favorite spots on the planet. This part of my film of our visit is one circuit by car. Closer looks on foot will be in part two.

Whipsnade is not strictly in Herts, but as it’s just outside it qualifies for my “Uncle Davey’s Herts Content” series on Hemel Hempstead et environs.

The Rickshaw Rant


Original YT playout date: 22 June 2008
Duration: 58:14

This video   h a s   i t   a l l !

Well, so it should, bearing in mind it lasts nearly an hour! Still, I would be very pleased if my dear listeners would sit back and just enjoy the show. Get a coffee!

Here’s some of what awaits you:

* Relaxing scenes from Warsaw’s Szczesliwicki park

* One of the rantiest impromptu rants I ever did.

* A unique ride through the park and Ochota in Warsaw’s (I believe) only family rickshaw. (There are a handful of commercial rickshaws in Lazienkowski Park for tourists, but I never saw them elsewhere, and only for hire, whereas mine isn’t)

* Creative use of the new annotations function, including lyrics to some of the background music and supplementary info. These annotations can and will be added to during the active life of the video.

* And to cap it all a couple of interesting pieces of incidental music in the background which I made a few years ago, and have been meaning to incorporate for some time.

Enjoy!

BTW For people in Poland wanting to get a rickshaw like mine, the place to go is

If there is any interest in founding a rickshaw society for Poland or an international one, anywhere on the interenet, let me know. It seems the natural answer to the fuel crisis, but we need to lobby cities for wider paved areas, and for the space between bollards which prevent car access still to be broadly spaced enough to allow rickshaw access. Also they don’t go up kerbs very well, so kerbs need to be smoothed off at road crossings.

Anyone who has pets and needs to get them neutered or castrated might be surprised to see sexual behaviours still linger after the mechanisms driving such behaviours have been set aside.

Pushkin’s Pre-castration video


Original playout date: 9 February 2008
Duration: 2:38

If you have an uncastrated male cat then after about eight months, they are going to get into musth, and then they are very frustrated if they can’t go out in search of females. Pushkin was lietrally climbing up the walls to get out of here just to try to find the female cats he could smell on the breeze. Castration is a mercy to a cat if he is not going to breed. It is also part of a contract if you don’t pay the pedigree price.
