Apology + animals on snow - PHOTOSHi pals I would like to apologize. I was so annoyed with the thieves (and I still am) and all similar ignorrant persons, that I almost stopped replying to notes and comments... Let's say that if you write "use of this photo is allowed only with written permission" and then you do not answer those, who DO ask, it is definitely not the most fair thing :/ so sorry, I promise I will answer as soon as possible. It really would not be fair if those, who are able to politely ask for permission, would suffer for the acts of the thieves. Once more, I am sorry that allowed all those rude thieves to annoy me that much that I stopped replying...And... after several months of terrible overeating caused by diploma thesis, family problems stress, I had no courage to try to use a scale to check my weight. I just felt that my body is covered with fat again. But then I decided to move and checked it - I found out that after all those months of "piggy" overeating, I got only some 4 kilos back, which
Kiriban is close, thank you + animals - PHOTOSHello guys at first (have you noticed that I always start with this line? ), THAAAAANK YOU for so many points - I could not believe it, but I really got the sale, ordering the profi photobag from dA. Thank you so much I know I got some notes about it, I will answer them ASAP - and next time, there will be the second part of "thank you feature" - I just think this journal should be a little break and it should show some animals Once more, thank you, your support pleased me in the time, when I really needed it. I do not know how to say it clearly to be understood well, but in the time, when people harrash me and steal my work, being rude at me in return, I just desperately needed and seeked some kind or support. And this was not even verbal, but also some "I like your work, so I donate something" help. You can not imagine how much it means for me THANK YOU!And I will also post the promised quiz soon, so you can have some fun Now: kiriban is very close! C
News about wolves :(Hello pals,sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.The ZOO repeatedly applied te
Fail, thieves + Wolves on snow (fresh PHOTOS)Hi!At first, kiriban 955 555 is VERY close!At second, photo trip to ZOO Bratislava was a fail. I love visiting ZOOs in winter, they are usually calm, animals are more active and are more curious about you. ZOO Bratislava was nicely covered with snow, but ALL the animals were hidden, I have never seen such an empty ZOO the only animals I could photograph were wolves (but in totally photographer unfriendly enclosure) and red pandas. I predicted big cats would be closed in indoor enclosures, but I forgot those exhibits have only natural light which comes through roof windows. But nobody bothered to remove the snow from the roof, so light could not get inside and the indoor cat enclosures were SO dark that one had troubles to even spot the cats there it was absolutely impossible to take a photo. And finally, I got stuck in Bratislava, freezing in wet shoes and jeans for more than 60 minutes without moving, so I wonder if I get some illness At third, I failed in NAT GEO co
Animals and LOVE - PhotosHi,thank you for so many notes with Valentine cards! I wish you wonderful Valentine too and here is my series of "animals in love" photos
News, busy and wonderful big cats - PHOTOSHi pals!I am pretty tired but busy (it is 2AM here), so just a short text:1) Kiriban has been caught, winner will be featured next time - congrats new kiriban is - aww - 1M! I am so excited! 2) I am still trying to lose weight and I still use that online program. It is pretty good. I eat 5000 Kj a day and today I went for the first evening walk of this year (until today, it was too cold, even snowing) - we were walking very fast, burning 2000 Kj in just one hour. Great! I also exercise, so I hope to lose even more weight! The bad thing is that time to time, I feel dizzy and like passing out. It has never happened to me, but when the dizzy feeling comes, I immediately take a piece of high-quality chocolate. It is a great first aid 3) I got more active in a group which is questioning the temporary dolphin show in Prague. It takes few hours a day, but it is very interesting, the issue is becoming very hot here. We have news, but... well, maybe in next journal? (too tired f
Newssss + kiriban + animals - PHOTOSHi pals,my journals are rarer and rarer, heh?At first, kiriban! I missed wonderful 977 777 (I am an idiot), so catch my 978 978 to win a feature! it is quite close! Just send me a printscreen via note as a proof, please (as usual, no feature for porn or animal cruelty, thank you for understanding)At second, let me thank you for a camera bag! I could buy it thanks to all your donations and it arrived safe, looking pretty awesome I especially appreciate a special space for bottle of water thank you once moooore! But you know what is funny? Maybe you remember I said that I ordered two T-shirts from DA as a reward for losing weight. I ordered them and paid with points 11/1/2012 and I was nervous because I waited long time without getting them. After Christmas, I informed dA that the package did not arrive. Because both T-shirts were already out of stock, DA politely got my points back. But two days ago, more than 4 months after ordering it, my T-shir
News, features, BEARS - PHOTOSHi Ohooo, I celebrated my graduation ceremony with like billions of calories! It was the first time I had sushi (but I am a bit suspicious if the sushi was a proper version, because apart of tuna or salmon, there were also pieces which included pieces of... a duck ), then we had some cake, Latte and finally that pizza. Yummmmm.I am awfully back to healthy regime now, nah, I would so have something unhealthy The graduation ceremony was... a bit boring. I loved the previous ones better (lol, this one was my the third), because they were somehow nicely confused, the guests applauded although they were not supposed to do so... Funny but this time it was very official, the speech of our new dean was also somehow official (I sooo loved the previous dean! Fortunately he was present on Friday too, having a speech, but shorter). And guests seemed to be bored, like somebody forced them to sit there :/But it was not bad, simply a nice way how to say "goodbye" to my alma mater.
ZOO Salzburg - PhotosHi I am back from Alps It was a very short trip, but I got to see ZOO Salzburg, visited fantastic spa, had a nice walk, travelled by cute little train, ate a deer and all was simply nice But my camera and this ZOO are not friends :/ so I have only very few photos for you, I took mostly journal shots.And their special GINGER (!!!!) wolves were sleeping again! I have never seen such inactive wolves in any ZOO I also replied to almost all the notes! I hope you do not hate me for not responding to all contest notes you sent me months ago - those who won were those who sent the first three notes, so there was justice anyway and the right answer was released too, so I would need to reply to all those messages just with "I am sorry that you did not win, I wish you good luck next time" thanks for understanding!

TodayToday the sun shone brightly, as though the months of darkness were only a bad joke. I walked out to see the world again, the cracked pavement, the slush, the green dumpster for dreams (full again).Still, there was a warmth in the old bricks which had been lost. Cars and trucks made music on the wet asphalt. My head opened up to let dreams in again. Binge and purge, the day won't last long.

Disability Awareness Day :: Braille Art FeatureToday is Disability Awareness Day. It offers us a chance to promote awareness and understanding, as well as a moment to reflect on the lives of individuals living with a disability, and what those of us blessed with able bodies can do to assist.There are a number of articles coming to you from CVs and members alike aiming to spread awareness on the matter, so I won't double up on their efforts. But I want to take a moment to reiterate that not all disabilities are visible. Lately I've heard a lot of stories from people using disabled parking being abused by passers by, either verbally or via a note left on their dash, for not 'looking' disabled. It's a common theme. People will tend to judge the heath of another by how they look, but it is worth remembering that not all sick people look sick. The vast majority of disabilities are those you cannot see by looking at a person.Some people live with chronic pain. Ot
Studio GhibliA Tokyo based animation studio that needs no introduction! Studio Ghibli is best known for their traditionally animated anime films. It was originally founded by the legendary pair, Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, back in 1985. Ghibli is named after an Italian war plane that was used for scouting, this reflected Miyazaki's love for not only airplanes but also Italy. The name itself means "hot wind blowing through the Sahara Desert".Takahata and Miyazaki It was formed after the great success of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, which both Takahata and Miyazaki worked on. Their first feature film hit was Laputa, or some of you may know it as Castle in the Sky. Most of the films that Studio Ghibli produces is by Miyazaki, followed by Takahata, although they have worked with other film producers and directors as well.Family favourite, My Neighbour TotoroWalt Disney later acqui
Why it makes sense that Snape died...Now that I have probably angered a bunch of Snape fans, let me explain.I love Snape and his death broke my heart, and of course I wanted him to live! I wanted him to live because I felt he deserved better than dying the way he did, never having a chance to really make his own life, as he was always bound to his dead love, his guilt, mistakes, and his masters.However when I really think about it in a canon sense, and more detached from my Snape-love, it really makes perfect sense to me that he died and it seems right that he did.If Snape had survived the war, what sort of life would he have had after? Fanfictions deal with this a lot, and in many varying ways. I love to read about "Snape survived" fanfictions because the possibilities are interesting and endless. Does Snape get away from it all in a quiet cottage in the Orkneys? Does he stay at Hogwarts and take up his old post as Potions Master? Does he spend the rest of his life with effects from Nagini's bite? Does he finally move
