Huiña cat (Oncifelis guigna)




The huiña is the smallest cat of the Valdivian forest (Chile and Argentina) and the only carnivore endemic to the southern Andean forests. It has one of the most restricted distributions of any carnivore and is considered one of the two most threatened wild cats in South America. But very little information is available about its ecology, habitat requirements and threats.

Now you know as well.

While waiting those endless hours in a airport recently I came accross the name Huiña in a well worn discarded copy of a magazine.
Once I arrived here I googled and found this cutie picture and story.

Picture and quote from here.

Amazing what you can find ... it doesn't look ferocious or anything, but it is a carnivore....

How adorable! I wonder how hard it would be to potty train one of those little boogers.

Oh what a sweet face. I want one instead of the ocelot I've been craving since Honey West was on TV.

In full flight



Sorry the photo is a bit blurry but I had to snap it quickly as I passed this boykie in my mad rush last week, he looked like he was looking for parking. Really!

The photo actually comes from The Cheetah Spot
Cheetahs can maintain 71 miles per hour for up to 200 yards.


Comments:

They are amazing animals for sure. Princess KK loves the cheetahs we have here at the zoo and they have it all marked out with paw prints the distance they can make it in one stride...very cool...

I'm glad you posted again today. I heard there was a big plane crash in Nigeria and I wasn't sure if we should send out the little Bushman to find you...

Zambia

Jeebus,

After 17 hours of either waiting in hot airports or flying in hot aircraft with a lot of other hot and sweating people, I stank to high heaven and my temper was short.

I felt a bit sorry for the people in the last 40 minute hop in a 20 seater twin turbo prop.
15 of the passengers got on fresh and had to sit with 4 of us that have traveled the whole day.
Nobody said a thing though and I am here and will start to post daily again.

This explains it



In this part of the world, when somebody disappears, there's usually not much mystery.

But don't worry.

They are never gone very long. Twenty-four hours later, they are Lion Shit.

Maybe Mr. Lion is making a grumpy face because Girth Vader is poking him from the inside?

Need to Relax

Poetry is dear to Keesie’s heart.
One cannot live and love Africa without witnessing poetry in everything.

As deep as I love my continent, Elisson makes Keesie wish he were in Tennessee.

I am kin to crackers, rednecks, and ridge runners.

Jesus

Keesie is very happy today.
Today was fraught with indecision as I pondered my future. It was horrible.
A future that is soon to mix with Halloween festivities bears down on my horizon.
And then I found salvation at the bus driver’s shack.
Today Keesie is very happy.

All has been revealed.

Hallelujah.

Feudal or not

I employ:
A driver for me, and one for my wife.
A security guard for the day, and another for the night.
A gardener.
A housekeeper.

I don't have to employ anybody and I try to pay as much as I can.
I also leave an end of contract gift for my employees.
I believe these gifts are life changing as they represent a 24 month wage with no strings attached.
This will normally be enough to by a simple house on a plot of ground.
The amount of this will not be the deciding factor but the effect of 2 years wages all at once.
I hate the bastards from elsewhere that come here and employ a girl for the house to sleep with her.
These people are there to be exploited, why don't we show our Effin class and exploit them?
Assholes.


Things could be worse though.



All the non fishing guys, leftists, Baptist preachers and cat lovers could be facing a worst fate.

Elephant stress is this possible





The comment thread over there is very funny.

COMMENTS

Dunno about the rape, but I do know that Pilanesberg was worried because young males were attacking all sorts of other animals, including rhinos and "Zebra buses".

They'd been extinct in the area and reintroduced as herds with cows and calves only, since bull elephants were so much bigger and more troublesome to transport.

Theory then became that without the example of a mentoring male, the young ellies had no role models and behaved like the yobbos they naturally were, since ma couldn't understand or control them. They were going to bite the bullet and import mature males from the Kruger, but I lost track of what happened after that.

Funny that no-one noticed the lack of a strong father figure in the upbringing of human boys who becaome yobbos and ma can't control them, and .....

Probably against some theory of educators and Outcomes Based Education, or something.

# posted by Libby Spencer : 11 October, 2006

Oh, yes, I reread my post and thought I better explain that "Zebra buses" are vehicles painted with Zebra stripes to look "safari-ish" to drive tourists around in.

Basically the young ellies were attacking them and any other motor vehicles they came across. Lot's of very narrow escapes for the paying public, so something "HAD TO BE DONE". ;-)

Correction came from Bentley in Western Australia.

Jy's reg, Kees.

A Boer from WA.

And for Hammer, both sexes of both Blesbuck and Bontebok are horned. The males having thicker and longer horns.
If you could post a photo, I might be able to take a stab at identifying what it is, although I'm way better at the SA animals, since I spent many years hunting there, and as such had a great deal of interest in them.

And I will not be compromised by ignorant others because I refer to them more than once.
Oh that is not Latin it is Porto.
Of course Equus Pallidus does not mean deflowering of horses, but the reference to flowers or butterflies is as tenuous, if you take the Spanish derivative it can even mean latent sufferers ??.

So all we have is a horsy flower or butterfly that is "ignorância" and suffers.
Get well soon.

The picture of Darwin and the Porto words come from another blog In Shreds that landed here by mistake.

Lucky me.


BEING A MAN OF STURDY CHARACTER I ALSO HAD THIS POST IN DRAFT.
I Apologise.
If this man have ever studied Latin.
He may not be an asshole.
I apologise.

I did not have to use this one.

No apologies neccesary, I was just funning with ya, and you really aren't arguing with me, you would be arguing with the Roman Catholic Latin Vulgate.

I found a entry on my sitemeter from Vox Popoli

I went there and found this post "Math is hard"
I do not know how to link to this post directly, use restraint and scroll down.

I read it and entered into the comment section.

My uncle Kees 'Leone phoned me a minute ago from little Italy in Chicago.

He said: (backed up by email)
Kees you are a dead duck, read your last posts man, we will pay you 1,150,000 USD to go and negate Fernando Alonso's next race, you know he is a lowly Spaniard, and drives a French car. (Yechhhh)

Family arguments

We have a fairly easy come, easy go attitude in and about the Kees household.
The other day I received a call from uncle Kees.
I did not understand it all, he was rumbling on about morals and sticking to one's roots, whatever that means.

For the next 3 weeks I am booked up completely and can't go to see him as he requires.
I am now looking for volunteers to go to him on my behalf to talk about how the older people should let go, or eff off, and give the young ones a chance.

Please volunteer in the comments and find an introductory photo of my uncle's Kees, Nymph and Klept.

I do hope all you brave people out there will be willing to spend a few seconds explaining my and your liberal views.

A personal note of thanks to my Irish granny, Gran O' Maniac for the photo's.


PS: Please let us know, so that we can get the organist to know, your favourite song.



Uncle's Kees, Nymph and Klept, may your soul rest in pieces.

My day job

Yes, he gets up at 8 and retires at 5, like all of us.

Keesie is called a Quantity Surveyor.

My job entails a lot of calculations and the knowledge of certain computer programs is essential.
Mathematics, although essential is not the be all and end all.
The job involves contracts, a lot of words.

My job is in itself not bureaucratic but I deal with bureaucrats all the time.

Let’s explain that.
Many moons ago an entity like USAID, DANIDA or EU wanted to build a dam in the Republic of Gomorrah.(hereafter called RoG)
They put together a document for various companies to peruse and the put in a bid to build this dam. This document was drawn up by the wife of the secretary of the treasury of this company, because she could write great plays.

The lowest bid was put in by KeesKennis Construction, (hereafter called the Contractor)
In this document it was stated that the contractor would need to import some 5000 tons of aggregate as the RoG does not have any stone suitable for concrete.
The Contractor determined that there was a source in a neighbouring country for this said 5000 tons and priced his bid accordingly.

While the Contractor was constructing the said dam he realised that the lady playwright mistook tons for cubic meters (1 ton = 1 cubic meter for water) but for stone the specific gravity is between 2 and 2.9 tons per cubic meter, so she should have said 14500 tons of aggregate.
So the Contractor ordered more stone and found out that quarry that produced the stone have now run out and that he now had to ship this stone from the next country 1500 km away.
The contractor claimed the extra costs plus some hidden profits from the Funding Agency (USAID, DANIDA or EU) and they had to pay. This extra cost had the effect of doubling the total cost of this dam.

Now bureaucrats don’t like their budgets messed with so they called in more playwrights and LAYWERS, note that they did not call in Engineers or Quantity Surveyors, so this lot produced more words that you can shake a stick at.

The result is that we now have another 1914 chapters to any document that we must peruse and bid upon.

So now we often ponder about what the meaning of is, is.

That’s my Day Job to find opportunities in that mangle of words that benefit my company

Forty minus


Who of my forty minus readers can name the car?

A friend of mine bought a wreck for 150 rand (then about 220 USD).
I helped him to get it on the road.
It was a chick magnet.
You had to have a place to go to as their was no space inside (not for two couples anyway).

Yes the SA Rand was R0.67 to the USD at that time, Now I use R7.70 to buy 1 USD.

Nevermaaaind the TL was good, clean and healthy fun.

It must be the best looking car of that era.

My instinct to help this friend paid heavy dividends over the guy that wanted me to help him with his dad's old Austin

As BobG points out the photo came from View From The Porch and from this post. Thanks Bob
I did not get it from there but the person who emailed me might have.

Starter pack

So you have this nice big farm and lodge and you want to introduce lions to attract more customers.




Then you realise that starting a breeding herd of antelope or wildebeest will cost much more than the lions.

What to do?







Introduce warthogs, real cuddly little things.

That is your answer. They are cheap and breed like err well hogs.

That way you can use the money from the lions to introduce other animals.

If you are succesful and make a killing.



Vultures will soon show up, as in human life.

The wild hogs in South Texas are pretty bad I've seen some upwards of 600 pounds. Maybe we could use a few lions ourselves.

These boars are tough. One of them attacked my fathers dogs and it took 20 rounds of 357 mag to bring it down. Might give the lions a run for their money.

Maw......



...please tell me again why I will have to wear braces.


At least that is what I think the youngster is saying.

What do you think?

Mom...Are we there yet?
 
Nah, he's saying "I love you".
"You make me feel safe".
 
If it was my daughter she would be telling me "don't worry dad, I am here". She is still that way.

Kees here's the joke I posted at Hammer's site.

Congrats Hammer...here's a joke for the occasion:

Two campers are hiking in the woods when one is bitten on the rear end by a rattlesnake. "I'll go into town for a doctor," the other says. He runs ten miles to a small town and finds the only doctor delivering a baby. "I can't leave," the doctor says. "But here's what to do. Take a knife, cut a little X where the bite is, suck out the poison and spit it on the ground." The guy runs back to his friend, who is in agony. "What did the doctor say?" the victim cries. "He says you're gonna die."

Okay I'm posting a 2nd one (is that allowed) since some FatHairyBastard said my joke was "old". LOL

Two doctors and an HMO manager die and line up together at the Pearly Gates. One doctor steps forward and tells St. Peter, "As a pediatric surgeon, I saved hundreds of children." St. Peter lets him enter. The next doctor says, "As a psychiatrist, I helped thousands of people live better lives." St. Peter tells him to go ahead. The last man says, "I was an HMO manager. I got countless families cost-effective health care." St. Peter replies, "You may enter. But," he adds, "You can only stay for three days. After that, you can go to hell."

A couple was on their honeymoon, lying in bed, about ready to consummate their marriage, when the new bride says to the husband, "I have a confession to make, I'm not a virgin."The husband replies, "That's no big thing in this day and age."The wife continues, "Yeah, I've been with one guy.""Oh yeah? Who was the guy?""Tiger Woods.""Tiger Woods, the golfer?""Yeah.""Well, he's rich, famous and handsome. I can see why you went to bed with him."

The husband and wife then make passionate love.When they are done, the husband gets up and walks to the telephone."What are you doing?" asks the wife.The husband says, "I'm hungry, I was going to call room service and get something to eat.""Tiger wouldn't do that.""Oh yeah? What would Tiger do?""He'd come back to bed and do it a second time."The husband puts down the phone and goes back to bed to make love a second time.

When they finish, he gets up and goes over to the phone. "Now what are you doing?" she asks.The husband says, "I'm still hungry so I was going to get room service to get something to eat.""Tiger wouldn't do that.""Oh yeah? What would Tiger do?""He'd come back to bed and do it again."

The guy slams down the phone, goes back to bed, and makes love one more time.When they finish he's tired and beat. He drags himself over to the phone and starts to dial.The wife asks, "Are you calling room service?""No! I'm calling Tiger Woods, to find out what par is for this damn hole."
