Ms Charlie, I have seen a lot of faces look like that over the 40 years and over 300 children I cared for! There are some more pics on the streaming cam pics and I am sure someone has a video! Might even be more pictures posted. Zoomie did get some good close ups of the 3 drinking at the finger that were much clearer than the ones a bit farther away. I see lightning in the background at the wh again! I do have to go now before the store closes that I left my work schedule at for the week. I can't remember what days and times I am supposed to be at which of my 2 jobs! Need some groceries too!

Yes I can set the clock on a vcr! I worked for 9 months for the Best Buy Company as a video consultant and had to know how to operate every vcr and tv they had at the time. Had to set all the vcr clocks every morning, as they shut the power off at night!

Sorry, Ms Charlie! You actually missed 4 rhinos! When I discovered that the cam was back, there were the 3 rhinos at the finger and a 4th one on the opposite left end. Then they all kind of walked up by the marula tree and later came back down by the finger side and past. A zoomie managed to close in on them, which helped to see them much better. They walked slowly back and forth in a row for a time and cam back for a final drink before leaving. Then, what I think may have been the 4th one came back and laid on his belly for awhile. He was so fuzzy at first, his head didn't look like a head. Then a zoomie managed to get a close up, but his head still didn't look right! He finally stood up so we could see he was only a single rhino with some mud on his face! Do you have bells and whistles on your personal email so you know when a new message comes in? I can hollar pretty loud, but not loud enough to reach you in Canada when something is happening and you don't appear to be logged on! You had better unpack every box right in front of the computer and make someone else put things away for you! I need to leave for about an hour, so that will be when another cat or ellie shows up, I am sure!

Well, I guess you can't capture every one1. I have 4 cameras, but seem to only take pictures of family. Most of my cameras have just been point and shoot type. I had a video camera back in '83 that was huge and you had to have a separate vcr with a battery to run it. I earned a vcr in a Tupperware gift challenge that said it could operate a camera. So I took it to the store that sold Magnavox to see if I could trade it in for the model that had the pop out deck with the battery. Even though the vcr was brand new and in the box, they claimed it was a promotional model and would only give me $200 for it to trade on a model like I wanted. I was told the vcr was worth $1500 at the time, so didn't sound like a good deal to me! And I had planned to buy a camera from them if they had traded with me. So I checked around at other stores and bought an RCA video camera and a special power adapter that I could connect the camera to the vcr. I had to use an extension cord in order to go anywhere with it and both units were very heavy. I them each in their own suitcase and lugged them to all of my son's basketball games. People used to think I was from the local TV station! lol! I took video of all of his games until he graduated in '85 and also took video of my husband and boys in softball games too. Eventually, I got a camcorder, but it was also quite large. Now I have a digital one that my daughter gave me after she got a new one and mine got wiped out by a monster wave in Hawaii! She also gave me her old digital camera when she got a new one last year. I also have a Kodak Advantix camera that can take 3 different size pictures. I like the panorama one for scenery. I also have had Poloroid cameras since the old black and white Swinger model eons ago! I like being able to take some special pics of events that can never be repeated. So many times I have both a Poloroid pic and another pic of the same person or people. There is nothing worse than discovering when you get back home and have film developed that none of your pictures turned out! I also lost a Poloroid and a 35mm to the giant wave in Hawaii. Luckily got the film out quickly and the camcorder made whirring noises and spit out the tape, so managed to save that too. I also have a very rare Tasco Binocular Cam. It has binoculars on top of the camera so you can take a picture of whatever you see through the binoculars. It has a 100mm lens so I can get some neat photos of things far away. It can't focus any closer than 25' and no flash, and the film is 110, so very hard to find. Has to be special ordered now. You should see how they check my luggage any time I have flown recently with 4 cameras in one bag! All the batteries and chargers set off their scanners. Someone suggested I take all of the batteries and chargers out of the bag, put them in a ziplock bag and place them in their bin instead and that was the first time ever that they didn't stop me to open my bag!
