Super tramp ( school )

After school is over you're playing in the park
Don't be out too late, don't let it get too dark
They tell you not to hang around and learn what life's about
And grow up just like them, won't you let it work it out?
And you're full of doubt

Don't do this and don't do that
What are they trying to do? Make a good boy of you
Do they know where it's at?
Don't criticize, they're old and wise
Do as they tell you to
Don't want the Devil to
Come out and put your eyes

Maybe I'm mistaken expecting you to fight
Or maybe I'm just crazy, I don't know wrong from right
But while I am still living, I've just got this to say
It's always up to you if you want to be that
Want to see that, want to see that way


You're coming along

International Women's Day ( 8th March )



A woman is always ready to care, love and sacrifice for the other. She plays the character of a mother, daughter, wife, friend, nurturer, guide and partner. Emotional and vulnerable, she displays a wonderful range of emotions from being patient to being extremely courageous in times of crisis.


This video is my tribute to all WOMEN.

Lovely!


Three white tiger cubs , one of the rarest and most admired in nature, were born at the Lisbon Zoo. They are two females and one male children of one couple in the existing park. Contrary to what some people think, the white tigers are not albino, nor a subspecies of tiger. The hair colour is due to a recessive gene, when both parents are carriers of the gene responsible for light-colored coat. Their coloring is more intense in winter, as an adaptation to cold, bringing out blue eyes, pink nose and creamy white with brown lists.

The gestation period of the WhiteTigers is 102 to 112 days. Calves nurse for three to six months and accompany the mother for two to three years, learning the techniques of hunting for its future survival as adults lonely. Because of its white coat that does not give the appropriate camouflage for their survival in the wild, white tigers, were for centuries the target of poaching that led to its extinction in the wild.

St. Valentine

The popular festival of love and romances traces its origin to ancient Roman festival and has not been created by card companies as some people believe it to be. There are various legends associated with the festival along with the belief that birds began to mate from this day. Popularity of the Valentine's Day festival stems from the combined effects of all these legends, beliefs and of course the wish to glorify the unparalleled feeling of love.
