Since I started my "short" item blog, http://mysanfranciscozooouttings.blogspot.com/ a couple followers have noted that its hard to comment on that blog because of how lengthy the Running Commentary post is. I would like to figure this out so people can comment. That said, the style of that blog being a running one post, was meant to be easy access to everything by just landing at the main page. I have posted here once before a Topic list, but that doesn't lend to a comment forum, unless you go back and forth. So, I'm going to try this. Once a week posting here, what was posted on that supplement blog.
> September 26, 2013 - I really should start tallying up all the things the Zoo does that I blog about. Just saying. ... I post here in July 7 entry suggesting a Food Truck event and tonight's event Noc'tails, will include Food Trucks. Actually looks like a good event. Since the Lion House is open during it, would have been cool if they gave the Big Cats some fun themed Enrichment Toys! Here's a photo of a Coconut Cup Tropical Cocktail "Toy" I made for our Tiki Luau themed day :)

> September 25, 2013 - The Zoo finally took my suggestion and came up with a creative way to Name an Animal (thankfully, as a newborn, this one didn't already have a Name!). Noted in my August 23 post. These "ballot" boxes are located in Entry Village.
> September 25, 2013 - Finally! After visiting Willow a handful of times and not seeing her with any food or with it only hanging outside her enclosure, today, she had food inside the fence! Maybe alittle racket helped?! http://iamnotananteater.blogspot.com/2013/09/meet-willow-new-giraffe-lady.html
Four food options INSIDE the fence!
> September 24, 2013 - I haven't posted in sometime about the Idiots who roam free at the Zoo. That doesn't mean they don't still exist. I see them every visit and document as many as possible, because the Zoo refuses to take a stand on deterring this misbehavior. Last week in the African Aviary a guy reached into the exhibit and bounced a tree branch trying to get the Bird sitting on it to move for a photo. WTF? People are out of control. Sure that's minor to Visitors hanging over barriers and possibly falling in, but still its major Bullshit and I'm tired of seeing it. This is their home, WTF is wrong with people? In the case of the later, if that happened, one of our Animals would be killed.
Idiots is too kind. Considering that this is invasive to an Animal in its home AND this action could lead to an Animals death. So, Evil, Demon, Ahole is more what I'd call it, but many don't embrace my extreme bluntness in choice of words. Being ignorant is no longer a valid excuse. ... Note this same Family was dangled of the Black Rhinos minutes before. These Parents must not only be stupid as get all, but must really hate their Children.
> September 23, 2013 - New idea for sharing photos. I take alot of Zoo friend photos, but only edit and share a few on Flickr. Editing is time consuming and they all have to be resized even if I don't have to adjust exposure. So, I picked a bunch from the past week and put them in a Video. Will try to do this weekly :) Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0c4JoLnBASU
> September 21, 2013 - While watching Willow the other day, I captured a Sweet interaction between her and Amani :) While the other Giraffes came by and looked, only Amani interacted with her. Amani came up and sniffed her and then started giving her Kisses! Too precious :) I almost teared up it was so sweet. Amani seems to be a very kissey, lovey girl, as I captured her also kissing the Babie :) I love these two beautiful new Girls! Welcome to you both, I look forward to watching you for many years to come!
> September 19, 2013 - Put together some screen caps from the Monitor outside Gorillas. I took pix of the ones of the babie that I haven't seen posted online anywhere. There have only been a few, these will probably be new to those who haven't been in person.
> September 18, 2013 - Had a wonderful interaction with precious Gauhati (One-Horned Rhino) you can view the video of him greeting me and wanting me to play Ball with him :)
