See the family resemblance? I think the Red Panda looks just a bit more comfortable, what do you think?

You have to admire other animals and how they can take a rest and not worry that the world around them is going to stop. I would love to be able to sleep like that, well at least sometimes. He doesn't even worry that his other name is The Lesser Panda, I think if my name was The Lesser Rachell, or The Lesser Mother or The Lesser Realtor, I might not be taking such a relaxing break.

Interesting Faces in San Diego As Part of the Chinese Festival at the San Diego Zoo, these Chinese Dance characters make an entertaining appearance. Their costumes and dance talent is authentic and rather extraordinary. They are actually on specially designed stilt attachments that not only give them height but at the bottom of their costumes they appear to be walking on air. Sort of gives a new definition of being light on their feet. As part of a regular series " Interesting Faces in San Diego", these Chinese entertainers definitly qualify as Interesting.   If you are Buying, Selling or Relocating to San Diego and  need help from a professional REALTOR®, Give me a call or visit my San Diego Real Estate website and Sign up for Listing alerts for your favorite San DiegoHome and Condomin...

Are There Just Too Many Baby Elephants At Our Zoo ? According to some sources here in San Diego, there are. Well at least too many healthy adult male elephants. Seems some animal rights group published an article recently naming the San Diego Zoo as one of the 10 worst zoos for elephants. Supposedly these happy guys here are mating to often. So what are the gals supposed to do. Just Say NO.  Right? This young guy is one of 4 born last last year and a cutie he is too. When I see these offspring, my mind doesn't go to that sort of topic. I think how wonderful we are to be blessed with yet another baby elephant. These little ones play together in a safe and healthy envireonment. But as Lenn Harley would say, "I am no expert " and I'm certainly not an expert but I happen to think our Zoo an...

Elephant Odyssey At San Diego Zoo Wins People's Choice Award Each year, the San Diego Architectural community holds it's annual Orchids and Onions awards. This year, there were two people choice awards and one of those awards was given to the San Diego Zoo for it's Elephant Odyssey attraction as best in Urban Design and Planning. The Orchids and Onion program was instituted by the San Diego Architectural Foundation to provide education to the public about architecture, both the good and the not so good. The People's Choice award is determined by online balloting by the public. I happen think the voters made a great choice for this years People's Choice Orchid Award . I think the residents at the Odyssey would also agree.

Was It Just Luck or Seizing Opportunity at the Right Place at the Right Moment ? As a member of the San Diego Zoological Society, one of the advantages of membership is having unlimited access to both our San Diego Zoo and our Wild Animal Park ( recently re-named to Safari Park). Today in the mail I received my Zoo news magazine which contained a beautiful full color calendar for 2011. I flipped through the pages and low and behold I saw a photograph of a Cheetah that looked almost exactly like one I had taken. I looked through my photo collection and there it was. There is not a doubt in my mind that the photo used in the calendar was taken at the very same moment I had taken mine ( would have had to have been less than a second's difference in timing). The difference in the photos was...
