How sad for the baby humpbacked whale that is trying to nurse from a yacht in Australia. The poor thing was either separated from or rejected by it's mother and needs mother's milk to survive. I've gone whale watching many times out at the Stellwagon Bank off of Cape Cod and have seen these animals up close and personal. They are magnificent.

I wish there was something that mankind can do for it but the calf nurses from their mother for almost a year.
The effort to save it would be monumental and experts don't think it can be done. It will die soon without nourishment. Nature can be so cruel sometimes.
On a completely different random note I read that the world's tallest man Bao Xishun at 7' 9" and his wife Xia 5' 6" are expecting a baby. Here they are on their wedding day. Am I the only one who ponders what their intimate moments are like and is he proportionate? I can't be can I?

This summer I've been watching my niece 13 and nephew 10 two days a week while my sister works. I took care of both of them when they were infants - age 3. William and I are hooked on Ninja Warrior on the G4 network. We love the jumping spider obstacle.

It's sad that they had to euthanize the whale.

I'm with you on the tallest man and his wife.

And, my husband and son do enjoy Ninja Warrior.
