    Hello Bettys

    In a massive rush but just wanted to post this Fiona update...

    Family reunion! We've never been more excited about a post! BiFi (the power duo name that’s being used for Bibi and Fiona) was joined by Henry this morning for the first time. The three were introduced in Hippo Cove’s outdoor pool before the Zoo opened, supervised by their care team. The short introduction went well. Bibi intervened when Henry got too close to Fiona, which was exactly what we were hoping to see. Introductions will continue.

    I give up on food research. It wasn't that long ago that coffee was bad for you if you drink a lot of it.

    The trouble with this sort of research is that there are too many other variables. Ok, so a cohort of people who drank 3cups a day lived a long time. What about all the other types of food they ate, their lifestyles, their alcohol consumption, exercise regimes, mental health, where they lived, genetics, etc. etc. etc.

    And if you dig deeply, you might just find that the research was sponsored by a coffee manufacturer!

    No, I'm ignoring it all and sticking to the maxim that a little of a lot is good, but a lot of a little isn't.



    Ps. Your emoticon will have a heart attack if it keeps drinking all that coffee!

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

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




    Do you remember Etch a Sketch?

    If you spent many happy hours drawing pictures on the screen
    then magically removing them using the plastic slider, you’ll relish
    the opportunity to relive your childhood on Etch a Sketch Day.



    The Etch a Sketch toys are still readily available, so it’s a chance to
    invest in one and get sketching. If you prefer, taking time to do
    any sort of drawing or painting will be a good way of marking Etch
    a Sketch Day.

    This day is all about creativity, so undertaking anything which
    involves a pencil, pen or brush is appropriate. Why not have an
    Etch a Sketch competition with friends or colleagues, or give
    everyone a thirty-second limit to produce a work of art?

    With so many choices for having fun whilst also creating something
    original and wonderful, it’s no wonder that Etch a Sketch Day is so
    widely celebrated.

    https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/etch-a-sketch-day/









    We’re celebrating incredible woods and trees this summer and
    we’d love you to join us – by throwing a tree party!

    We all need trees. They are essential to life. They clean our air and
    cool our cities. They provide homes and food for wildlife. And they
    are the best playgrounds. But they are facing more threats than
    ever before and they need us to fight for them.

    Your tree party is a chance to have fun with family and friends,
    while honouring a very special guest – a tree. It’s also a great way
    to raise vital funds for our work, helping us plant native trees and
    protect precious woodland for people and wildlife.



    Apply for your free fundraising picnic box and make your tree the
    guest of honour.....

    ^^^^ Please refer to site for further information











    Have a brilliant and safe day all whatever you have planned. I will
    catch up later.
