I've mentioned the baby elephants in Sydney's Taronga Zoo before ... one of them is the miracle baby who survived an almost impossible birth about a year and a half ago. They have one calf who is older as well, plus one younger. The former was the first elephant to ever be born in Australia, on July 4th, 2009, exactly three years to the day after the herd arrived in their new home. His name is Luk Chai, and he weighed 96 kilos as a newborn - at age two, this month, he's grown to over 800 kilos. :-D His father, Gung, whom he apparently bears a strong resemblance to, is well on his way to four metric tons, so Luk Chai still has some growing to do. o_O Check out this video showing the birthday boy with his family ... look at him with his cousin, Pathi Harn - the miracle baby - they are just so wonderful together. :-)
Sometimes things are so crazy, out there and/or annoying that I just have to share it with someone somehow. Or I feel like I simply must record my thoughts on it for posterity. This is a good place to do that.

I write mostly in English on this blog. Whatever is written in Norwegian is something that either deals with situations, persons & phenomena specific to Norway, or is contigent on the reader understanding the Norwegian language in order to get the point.
