Bengali wrestles wife, wife tries to get kit off on camera!


Original playout date: 24 January 2008
Duration: 6:46

I suppose the provocative title is the main reason for the 20 thousand views, but then again it is quite an amusing, if blurry, battle of wills between my wife and our Bengal kitten (then kitten, now 11 year old cat) Pushkin. As well as a chance to hear some Russian.

Parasol mushrooms


Original playout date: 22 December 2007
Duration: 1:54

“This is one from the early Autumn on the terrace.

If there’s one thing that doesn’t fly on youtube it’s anything to do with gardens or gardening videos, but despite that, here I go uploading another one. Will I ever learn? Maybe in 2008, but it’s still 2007 now, and I gotta upload off my material or just dump it, and I thought someone out there might, by some odd chance, take an interest in these fine fungi.

By the way, I say, I say, I say: why did the parasol mushroom get invited to all the best parties? Because he was a “”fun guy”” to be with!”

Holiday in Alsace #7 – Going up Monkey Mountain


Original playout date: 19 September 2007
Duration: 6:57

Agent de YouTube Uncle Davey takes Sophie up Monkey Moutain in Alsace, which is a rhesus monkey enclosure and Sophie has a nice time feeding them.

It’s a bit scary really the way she comes right up to them. Thankfully they are not so aggressive and usually will warn prior to biting like most animals.

Tree felling going on in a Warsaw park. I can’t get in to work, but at least I can make the best of the situation by making a short film recording my thoughts on the subject.

Choosing a Bengal Cat これは 猫です


Original playout date: 10 September 2007
Duration: 11:43

A collection of fine thoroughbred Bengals. We decided in the end for Pushkin, the marbled brown four month kitten you see in the frame at 10:40, and reserved him, but I am still hoping for comments and advice from bengal cat cognoscenti. Two weeks later Pushkin came to our home and 10 and a half years later he is still here enjoying himself. I have added a category under family members for Pushkin and this is the first one as it’s the first time he ever appeared on a film, as this is where we meet him for the first time, the guy who sleeps on our bed every night.
