Koko the Sign-Languaged Gorilla: Kittens and Paintings and Such... Happy Birthday Sweetest Gorillas (Stop the Slaughter, Congo!)

Koko was sad when told that Robin Williams, an acquaintance of hers, had died....What? was TOLD? Yes, Koko knows sign language.  (video below)...
Apparently, Koko had become despondent over the death of a life-long friend. Robin Williams managed to make her laugh for the first time in 6 months.

When i was young,
 i learned about Koko. It was a fabulous thing. (Thank you, wise teachers...)
This Gorilla painted pictures of things she liked!
This is a picture of a dog who ran and played with her:

She picked out out prospective mating partners from videos, like a dating site...
She ran and played with kittens and dogs, forming interspecies relationships -- other than her relationships with us humans.
Her own pet kitten --tailless--
she named All Ball.


 Here she is playing with her own little kitten pet.
 there is deep emotional moment here.

Robin Williams and Koko

Koko made the news tonight.

Here is the story and video of Koko adopting two kittens.

Now. If you can bear it-- watch this very short video of what gorillas do to us, and what we do to gorillas.

 long version here


Baby Mountain Gorilla

Endangered Silverback Gorillas

One of the most heartbreaking and horrifying acts committed by humans
 is the torture or killing of 
sentient beings. 
Animals such as elephants, horses, all the higher mammals--, who have memories, emotions, families---
that we can treat them so despicably is beyond bearing at times. That we treat even the lower animals poorly reflects on us as well. We all walk about manifesting ourselves. ( The one minute at the end of The Urban Gorilla above--especially in light of the first minute--shows very clearly that the human being, capable of the highest good, is also capable of the most deplorable evil. )

However, to treat such tender and loving animals as, say, elephants, who exhibit deep family ties, who mourn their dead, who are traumatized by loss-- as if we are monsters, and they are nothing--or really, as if they are our hated enemies!
 --surely will be one of our greatest shames we will bear before God the Creator Almighty, when all things are bathed in Light.

This is merely a prelude to ask you to look at the destruction of Gorillas in the Congo. Yes, The Congo is surely in the crosshairs of Satan:  http://marysbeagooddogblog.blogspot.com/search?q=congo

Nonetheless, if you will spend two minutes researching what happens to gorillas there you will drop to your knees and pray for ....something.  Peace?  Destruction?
That all things be made new...

You can start here:

Destruction of the Giants

 If you google:, Congo Gorilla Slaughter  and hit Images, you will weep for a long time.

The situation with elephants HERE:

Here is a large collection of respect for animal life quotes, with some wonderful pictures.

We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form. ~William Ralph Inge, Outspoken Essays, 1922 

Mahatma Gandhi: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated"

From beasts we scorn as soulless, In forest, field and den, The cry goes up to witness The soullessness of men. ~M. Frida Hartley

e.e.cummings love poems

somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully, mysteriously) her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
compels me with the colour of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

somewhere i have never travelled by e.e. cummings

speaking of love(of
which Who knows the
meaning;or how dreaming

if your heart's mind)i
guess a grassblade
Thinks beyond or
around(as poems are

made)Our picking it. this
caress that laugh
both quickly signify
life's only half(through

deep weather then
or none let's feel
all)mind in mind flesh
In flesh succeeding disappear
; e. e. cummings

Planned Parenthood Video: Doctor wants to harvest intact heads of human babies

--In order to harvest human brain.

How insane, how ghoulish does this have to be before people wake up?????


"My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact," says Dermish, who said she sometimes uses ultrasound guidance to convert a 2nd-trimester fetus to a feet-first breech presentation: "Especially the 20-weekers are a lot harder versus the 18-weekers, so at that point I'll switch to breech."
Links, summary and all video summaries HERE 

watch just the first 20 seconds, the matter of factness....

they laugh at 5 minutes--
it is in regard to her having "something to shoot for"-- trying to get a 22 week old out intact enough to have the whole body.

in this current video, they laugh at trying to get the fetus out intact by turning it breech. watch from 4:55 for one minute and you will see evidence of another felony. Three other crimes being systematically committed are outlined here:

"The evolution of teaching Mathematics....

Math 1950-2005
Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried. Why do I tell you this?
Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:
1. Teaching Math In 1950
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

2. Teaching Math In 1960
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?
3. Teaching Math In 1970
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?

4. Teaching Math In 1980
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the number 20.

5. Teaching Math In 1990
A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers.)
