    The Baptist Cowboy

    A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas , walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Beer. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.
    The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."
    The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona , the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas , we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."
    The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.
    The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.
    One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."
    The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.
    "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."
    "Hasn't affected my brothers though."

    Paradise Tanager…mostly found in South America


    (I know, "no trees were harmed in the making of this playhouse" … Right ? 🙂


    At Wat Samphran (

    วัด สามพราน) in Nakhon Pathom Province there is a 17 story

    Building that has a giant dragon climbing to the roof. The head is at the top where
    There is a shrine and the tail is on the ground floor. The dragon is hollow and it is
    Possible to walk up some sections of it.

    This house was designed by Rudy Ricciotti. The unique architecture includes a

    Pool house, which is like a window in the living room where you can enjoy not
    Only swimming in the water, but the person swimming in it with the effect of the
    Outdoor landscape which is reflected through the window.


    Meanwhile, in China .

    The Aiguille du Midi cable car leaves from the centre of Chamonix . It takes visitors

    Up to 3842m for a stunning view of the French Swiss and Italian alps. —

    The Grand Canyon Skywalk

    The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge

    And tourist attraction in Arizona near the Colorado River on the edge of a side
    Canyon in the Grand Canyon West area of the main canyon. USGS topographic
    Maps show the elevation at the Skywalk's location as 4,770 ft (1,450 m) and the
    Elevation of the Colorado River in the base of the canyon as 1,160 ft (350 m), and
    They show that the height of the precisely vertical drop directly under the skywalk
    Is between 500 ft (150 m) and 800 ft (240 m).

    Commissioned and owned by the Hualapai Indian tribe, it was unveiled March 20,
    2007, and opened to the general public on March 28, 2007. It is accessed via the
    Grand Canyon West Airport terminal or a 120-mile (190 km) drive from Las Vegas ,

    Which includes a 10-mile (16 km) stretch of dirt road which is currently under
    Development. The Skywalk is east of Meadview and north of Peach Springs with
    Kingman being the closest major city.

    WOW STUNNING

     WOW STUNNING

    From

    Made from flowers in Holland , since 1936!

    What began in 1936 as a flower parade has become the oldest and most celebrated ode to blooms in Europe .
    Ever since its inception, Zundert in the Netherlands has hosted an annual flower show Bloemencorso <http://www.bloemencorsozundert.nl/> , with an average 50,000 visitors descending on the town to look at the brilliant displays.
    Creators use dahlias for their breathtaking displays and build gravity defying sculptures.

    7unknownname

    Let's hope the wind doesn't blow too hard! The flowers have been meticulously placed to create the giraffes, even down to their eyelids and hair that lines their neck

    5unknownname

    A roaring good show: The intricate blooms have been manipulated to create this gravity-defying impressive model of a tiger and her cubs

    0unknownname

    Every float is made from dahlias. This twisting house, which is as high as other apartments, weaves its ways through the narrow streets

    6unknownname

    Just by using dahlias, volunteers created this show-stopping piece, where a startled antelope flees the clutches of a leopard that gives chase

    9unknownname

    Udderly brilliant – thee competitors left no detail out – they even included the numbers on the tags on the ears, and what appears to be the inner workings of a milk-processing plant within the cow's body

    8unknownname

    Something fishy about this: Bloemencorso saw this elaborate fish display, which saw a shoal of fish whirl around each other – even using light-coloured dahlias to shade in the light bouncing off the eyeballs
    Each of the competing districts of Zundert – which was the home of Vincent Van Gogh – construct their own entry and compete in the parade, which occurs every first Sunday in September.

    According to those behind Bloemencorso, the parade is all the work of dedicated volunteers, who do not profit from the colourful display.
    A staggering six to eight million dahlia flowers are used to produce the floats.
    Visit http://www.bloemencorsozundert.nl/ for more information.

    3unknownname

    Bloemencorso began in 1936, and since then has spiralled in popularity, as the small population makes huge efforts to outdo one another so they can create sculptures like his huge organ

    2unknownname

    Even the meerkats get a mention! The curious animals are brought to life, as creators perfected every inch of the models, even down to their nails and shading on their tails

    1unknownname

    Out of this world! Every float here is made from petals and, despite being made from such a delicate, tiny structure, take on gigantic proportions which people clamour to see

    Unknownname

    It's really taken off! Bloemencorso has grown in term of popularity and in the sheer size of the creations, with thousands flocking to the home of Vincent Van Gogh to gasp at the displays

    7unknownname

    Held on the first Sunday of every September, the quaint town becomes packed with visitors and, on this occasion, a huge rhinoceros made of delicate flowers

    4unknownname

    Make it snappy! Thousands turn out to Bloemencorso, as hamlets compete with each other to create the most beautiful display – including this sinister-looking fishy creature

    10unknownname

    Cliff Hanger!!

     Cliff Hanger!!

     

    This not just another group of animal pictures, It's real drama. Who say's animals have no feelings?

    The bar is set higher and higher for awesome African game shots that we are privileged to see.!

     

    Clinging on for dear life to the side of a vertical cliff, the tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help. 

    His mother arrives at the edge of the precipice with three other lionesses and a male. The females start to clamber down together but turn back daunted by the sheer drop. 

    Eventually one single factor determines which of them will risk her life to save the youngster – motherly love. 

    Att0000112


    The drama begins: The mother arrives at the edge of the cliff as her son cries out for rescue after being trapped when he slipped 

    Att0000221

    On the brink: Four lionesses look over the edge before aborting their rescue mission because of the sheer drop 

    Slowly, agonizingly, the big cat edges her way down towards her terrified son, using her powerful claws to grip the crumbling cliff side. 

    One slip from her and both animals could end up dead at the bottom of the ravine. 

    Att0000334

    Just as the exhausted cub seems about to fall, his mother circles beneath him and he is snatched up in her jaws. 

    She then begins the equally perilous journey back to the top. Minutes later, they arrive and she gives the frightened creature a consoling lick on the head. 

    The dramatic rescue, captured by wildlife photographer Jean-Francois Largot, was played out in Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserve. 

    Despite the presence of wardens to deter poachers, day-to-day life for the lions is not without its dangers … as the cub learned the hard way. 

    Att0000445

    Rescue mission: The mother inches her way down the cliff face to rescue the terrified cub before locking him in her jaws and making her way back up the cliff face 

    Att0000553

    Motherly love: The mother gives her son a lick to say that all is well in the pride following the drama 

    HOW AWESOME IS THIS? Amazing!! Photos
