Fame On A Friday : David Attenborough Makes It All Better

On a day when the news is dominated by stories full of anguish and violence, it didn’t feel right to place any kind of importance on celebrity news. The fact that Kim Kardashian is finally divorced should not be news.

So to offer a bit of distraction I offer you the benevolent grandfather of TV, David Attenborough, who can be guaranteed to lift even the lowest of spirits with his soothing voice and interesting stories. See below for a clip from ‘Africa’, his new series, in which he makes friends with a blind baby rhino.

As much as I love to learn about animals and the natural world, I normally I hate to watch nature programming. I cannot stand to see things dying, even if it is nature’s way. I still haven’t recovered from Attenborough’s recent series in the polar regions, ‘Frozen Planet’, those bloody orca always ruined everything with their murderous ways!

Anyway enjoy this lovely clip, completely absent of whales.

Thursday Me Time : Ever Wonder How Animals Eat Their Food?

It’s not secret that I spend a good portion of my free time on YouTube, whether it’s catching up with the latest watercooler moments or rewatching my favourite episodes of ‘Supersizers Go…’ (seriously, watch the 80’s one), so it seems appropriate to share my new favourite: How Animals Eat Their Food.
WARNING: Do not try to act this out to your friends in a crowded pub, it may lead to chaos and soggy socks. Trust me.
