    Three-year-old sisters Mei Lun and Mei Huan, the first surviving
    panda twins to be born in the United States, were returned to
    China from Atlanta on Nov. 5, 2016.


    Two young giant-panda twins born in the United States have
    returned home to China, but are struggling to adapt to the
    language and food, according to Chinese state media.

    The 3-year-old sisters, Mei Lun and Mei Huan, were the first
    surviving panda twins to be born in the United States, and were
    returned to China from Zoo Atlanta on Nov. 5.

    But the pair still understand English better than Chinese, and
    prefer American crackers to Chinese bread, according to
    the People’s Daily.

    Luo Yunhong, a breeder at the Chengdu Giant Panda Research
    Base, told the paper that his main concern is that the pair are so
    addicted to American crackers that everything they eat –
    from bamboos to apples – has to be mixed with crackers. They
    even want to snack on crackers when drinking water.

    Luo is trying to wean them off their cracker habit, gradually
    replacing the American food with Chinese bread. Mei Huan is
    adapting, but Mei Lun doesn’t want to touch the unfamiliar bread.

    Aww - wonder if they were ever weaned off their beloved
    crackers!

    When McDonald’s first introduced drive-throughs to China, the
    concept was so foreign that many people would pick up their food
    through the drive-thru, park their cars, and bring the food inside
    the restaurant to eat it.

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys in Happy Chatty Land!

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful,
    fun-filled and truly scrumptious Friday!







    Garden Re-Leaf Day is Greenfingers Charity’s annual fundraising
    event which this year takes place on FRIDAY 17th MARCH. The
    event will see many supporters come together to raise funds to
    make a difference to children, and their families, who spend time
    in hospices across the UK.



    The big day is upon us so we would like to take this opportunity to
    thank each and every one of you who is getting behind this years
    fundraising events. Once again we have been overwhelmed by the
    generosity of those who have signed up.

    Whether you’re one of our brilliant ongoing supporters or you’re
    joining us for the first time, we hope you have great fun whilst
    raising money to bring the precious gift of a garden to life-limited
    children, and their families, who spend time in hospices across the
    UK.



    Click HERE to see the difference your help makes >>>>

    From Hellebores, plant-athons and megathons, to raffles and
    quizzes, cake sales and afternoon teas, (as well as fundraising on
    QVC!) there really is something for everyone; the garden lover,
    cafe visitor and the quizzical. Have-a-goers who like the chance to
    win something are also in for a big treat this year.



    If you’re taking part in the Garden Re-Leaf Day walk, prepare
    yourself for the beautiful sights of the historic city of Cambridge,
    exploring the grounds of Jesus College and enjoying the Botanic
    Gardens. To top it all off, a delicious barbecue will meet you at the
    finish point. Yum!

    However you’re taking part, we hope you’ll have a fantastic event
    that will lead to some great local and industry publicity.



    With more magical children’s hospice gardens in the planning,
    build or design stages, the money you raise will help us make such
    a big difference. We’re currently on site at

    Keech Hospice Care (Luton)
    Helen House (Oxford)

    and planning new gardens at

    Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice (Maidenhead)
    Grace House (Sunderland)
    Robin House on the banks of Loch Lomond, St Andrew’s Hospice (Grimbsy)

    and we have more hospices waiting in the wings for our help.



    It is solely down to the generosity of our supporters that we can
    carry on creating magical, inspiring and therapeutic gardens for
    children in hospices.

    So thank you very much for being part of Garden Re-Leaf Day and
    helping Greenfingers Charity continue its work.



    Here’s a quick message from Greenfingers Charity Patron Ann-
    Marie Powell sending her thanks! Thank you from Ann-Marie Powell >>>>

    Pygmy hippos are about the same size as pigs – though technically, hippos are more closely related to whales and dolphins than to any of their fellow land animals. Semi-aquatic vegetarians, these miniature mammals are difficult to study because they’re nocturnal and very shy. Only about 3,000 remain in the wild, mostly in Liberia.
