!! OMG, you must go: Hamilton !!


You had probably never thought about visiting fabulous Hamilton, Ontario before seeing this video, but now have fallen in love with the “City of Waterfalls.” If the singer’s angelic voice didn’t do it for you, then the inspired rhymes must have you running for the border.
Did you know that Hamilton has MORE than 100 PLUS waterfalls? Tell me what’s wrong with that sentence. (Thanks to Chad for this amazing tip!)

!! OMG, how sad: Tessa the Elephant !!

8f0c70104552aaa246580d883620.jpeg
Tessa, a forty-year-old elephant at the Toronto Zoo, died on Saturday after another member of the herd knocked her over while trying to steal her food. Tessa, who was a runt, died because of the pressure her own weight put on her internal organs (which is why you don’t see elephants rolling around that often). Even though she was bullied, her herd-mates still mourned her:

All through the night, Thika, Toka, Iringa and Tara made their way across the Toronto Zoo enclosure to stand by their fallen sister, a 40-year-old elephant who died Saturday after a shove from a dominant member of the group.
Some stood solitary vigil, others tossed dirt onto the cooling body. But each was there to mourn Tessa, one of the original members of their herd.

Rest In Peace, Tessa.
