basking log for pet turtles

When caring for Turtles or any reptile, provide a spot for basking under a heat lamp and UV lamp. Even better, position the aquarium near a window for natural sunlight, if possible. In this video, I try out two kinds of log platforms – fake and real options, which turtles can enjoy and rest between swimming in the tank. Check out my video and enjoy!

One of my favorite memories as a kid was when my father would take us on road trips. This was the cozy little RV (pictured) that we would travel in. We went to places like Monterey, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. The trip we made the most to, however, was Yosemite (as seen in my previous video post Yosemite – Bike & Camp).

I would sleep and stay in the nook above the drivers seat. When my father started driving, I opened up the drapes. The adventure would begin. The wonderful views of the world passed right before my eyes as I peaked through the top window. It makes me warm and fuzzy again just drawing it on paper, reminiscing about it.

Would you like to take a road trip in my tiny trailer?

Do you have a favorite memory of traveling in your youth? Let me know :)

my cat watches nature programs

My cat loves to watch television. She sits in front of the TV and enjoys watching animals like fish. birds, and anything nature! She also loves to play with turtles. I guess you can say she is a real animal lover! I just had to share these short clips of my cute kitten, and add to the many Cat Videos out there. Because there are never enough funny cat videos! Right?

Check out my short video. And thanks for watching!

G’day Mate! The Australian Open is happening down under now. All of the best tennis players, such as Osaka, Barty, Nadal and Federer, gather from around the world to compete on the biggest court stage. It is probably my favorite tennis tournament. Not just because it is a beautiful location but it is known as the “Happy Slam”. This is my drawing of a player bouncing the ball before a serve.

Who do you want to win?

Are you planning to visit Yosemite National Park? I have been there several times, thanks to my Dad. And I share what to do in the beautiful park, even if you only have one day to spare. In this video, I bike around Yosemite Village and in the scenic majestic valley, giving you a sampler of what Yosemite has to offer. Enjoy!

Which animals do you think are the most noble and gentle on Earth? I would like to say one such animal is a Sea Turtle. They are so calm, and they seem to not have a care in the world, and they will see a lot in her 80-year-long lifetime.

As a turtle “flies” gracefully in the deep blue sea, all she wants right now is some scrumptious sea weed to feed upon. She needs to recharge after a long journey across the ocean. My sketch is of a Green Sea Turtle.

What animal do you think of, that is so benevolent?

It is a New Year, a whole New Decade, and it is a good time to look back at some favorite fishing memories. I reminisce and share three special moments that are some of my personal best catches. Plus, I talk about why I believe we like to fish.
