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.

Duration: 3:28

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.

Lovely to remember the time my parents and I were enjoying Flammkuchen or tartes flambees together in lovely scenery in France. Contains a nice gallery section for the photos taken that day. I remember how that day the temperature down in the lowland was about 5 degrees hotter than up in the crests.

Huliganov’s “Doom and Gloom”


Original playout date: 7 August 2007
Duration: 2:16

Huliganov begins by quoting Keats’ Ode to Autumn in a lovely Autumn scene, but there’s a twist. It’s mid summer, and the chestnut tree shows both the signs of Autumn and the signs of Spring.

Thierry and Annie-Christine have two lovely parrots, an Amazonian Green and an African Grey. The African grey did a bunk a week ago, and after five days of liberty was fortunately retrieved. He is still a bit dazed in this video.

Hungary Series #4/5 – Still in Hortobagy


Original playout date: 28 July 2007
Duration: 7:55

We pick up where we left off in Hortobagy and its national park, the Hortobagy Puszta. We see tourists getting off the narrow guage railway, but there are no more trips schedules for the day. A nice gallery section to the tune of Tritsch-Tratsch polka, which by the way includes the cracking of a whip, and we also see a whip lady in the gallery, who was selling Hungarian cattle whips in the town.
