Sheep gives birth to lamb with human-like face: reports
January 14, 2010
Human-faced lamb ... as the story appears on the Pravda website.

Human-like face ... how the story of the lamb appears on the Pravda website.

A sheep in Turkey has reportedly given birth to a lamb with a human-like face.

Vet Erhan Elibol performed a caesarean section to deliver the calf near the city of Izmir and was horrified to find it looked like a human, Russian and Turkish news sites said.

"I've seen mutations with cows and sheep before. I've seen a one-eyed calf, a two-headed calf, a five-legged calf," the 29-year-old vet was quoted as saying in Russian newspaper website Pravda.


* Lily, a Chihuahua terrier mix from Charlotte, North Carolina, has five legs. July, 2009.
* Cy, a kitten born with only one eye and no nose, is shown in this photo provided by its owner iin December, 2005.
* A pig with two mouths is seen at a farm in the suburbs of Liaocheng, east China's Shandong province in July, 2006.
* An official shows a two-headed baby crocodile at Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm on the outskirt of Bangkok Monday in June, 2001.
* Feng Changlin from Fengzhang village, Xiping township in China shows off his piglet with a monkey face in July 2008.
* Liu Shuping, shows off a newly-born piglet with one head, two mouths, two noses and three eyes, for photographers in Xi'an, northwest China in 2007.
* A genetic mutation left a kitten born in Perth in March 2007 with two faces.
* Stumpy, a four-legged duckling at Warrawee Duck Farm, Copythorne, Hampshire, England, pictured in 2007.
* We, a two-headed albino rat snake in January, 2006.
* This Holstein calf, born in December, 2006 in Virginia breathes out of two noses and has two tongues and a single eye socket.
* A frog with eight legs in Quanzhou, in southeast China's Fujian province in 2007.
* A two-headed red slider turtle at Big Al's Aquarium in Pennsylvania, USA.

"But when I saw this youngster I could not believe my eyes."

Photos purportedly of the lamb, which was stillborn, show human-like eyes, nose and mouth.

Vets said the calf's mutation was most likely the result of an excess of vitamin A in the mother's fodder.

Pravda reported that a goat in Zimbabwe gave birth to a similar human-like calf last September. But villagers killed it, believing it was the result of intercourse between the mother goat and a man.

For my one and only

So in love with you.
by Vincent Paul Gonzales

When I gaze into your eyes,
Tomorrow is all I see.
I wish you could know, my love,
Just what you mean to me.

To hold you in the darkness,
And watch you next to me
To kiss your gentle lips,
Is heaven, girl, to me.

We hold hands when in public,
I beam with such delight
For, it's your tenderness and beauty
That makes my heart take flight.

You came into my life,
So unexpectedly,
Words can't ever express
Just what you mean to me.

Poetry doesn't say it,
Music can't even touch,
The endless love inside of me,
That wants your gentle touch.

Don't ever leave me, darling,
I don't know what I would do
Because, my darling baby,
I am so in love with you.

Travelling!!

Was a great weekend spent visiting my beautiful girlfriend in melbourne!! After taking my first ever big plane flight (yes at 40) and successfully looking nonchalant to other passengers haha i arrived to a vast differenance in temperature and feel. I like being somewhere its not disgustingly hot(was 40 degrees when i left) and seeing a place with much more vibrance then poor ol adelaide can seem to muster. That being said i spent 4 wonderful days with my lady, who's company never ceases to restore my belief in unconditional love and a closeness of heart i've never experienced before!! She is amazing and its always sad to be leaving her. There begs the question why i'm not with her all the time. Family committments and job prospects make it hard but i am sure with time things will come together,and we'll be able to enjoy more time together when its right for both of us. And I can't wait!!!!!

Musings 2

Yes,another week gone!!!A full working week,including Sat morning rendered me exhausted Sunday morning!!!So much i slept til after noon lol.I felt the need this week to contact some old friends,which i did through emails and facebook,and still awaiting replies. I think you need to keep in touch no matter what, as they can't always keep in touch with you,and shouldn't have to do all the work!!Friendships like anything, need both parties to work at it sometimes, when life seems so busy you don't have time to do anything you want to do!!
Big thanks to my lovely girlfriend, whose support this week was invaluable while I battled extreme dental agony-the result of years of sugar addiction and dentist phobia! She cares very much about me, and that feels so good that I wonder how i deserve to have someone so loving!!!
You know, work isn't the be all and end all to me. And having the latest stuff appeals to me even less. What does matter is showing people you love that you care about them, and keeping this connection by showing unconditional love. We are all here on earth to love and help others-there is actually nothing else that really matters.

Motivations

Broken Wings

I have overpowered the silver lining with my bruised wings
I know the luster of the sunshine would heal me
My nest is almost on the verge of collapsing
I know my broken wings wouldn't give up
To gather the twigs again
My slashed wings ache when I fly
Yet I continue

Something beyond the dense haze constantly lures me
I bleed quite often
But I can't settle feeling small for the sake of luxury
I shall soar
For my limits are limitless
I don't mind my stings nor the broken wings!

Another day gone!!!Was contrast to last 3 very hot days-we had rain and nice temperatures today!! Trudging through life you often wonder if you're on the right path, or where its going to go. Follow your passions they say!! Sometimes, circumstances prevent you from doing that straight away. We all still have to live and carry on some semblance of existence!! Apart from my lovely girlfriend, whom I adore(who lives 1000km away) and my gorgeous daughter(growing up so quickly!), life is a hodgepodge of one day blending into the next with no highlights or lowlights even!! So I must endeavour to make more of life,to look for the good things and live as if I would die tomorrow(or soon)? Hmmmm how do you do that in a job you hate? Easy,get a new job!! Haha, easier said then done!! But the main thing is I think is to picture that future,and it will happen. And so I will.!!!!!!!! I also wish for more time with my gf hehe so who knows-this will happen too!!! Tomorrow is another day.

Review-The Lovely Bones

Today went to cinema with my lovely daughter Chloe, her friend Bree and even her brother tagged along to see The Lovely Bones.The story was well structured and easy enough to follow,and the acting excellent. Saoirse Ronan who played Susie Salmon,the 14 year old girl who was murdered played her part brilliantly,as did Mark Wahlberg as her grieving father, hell bent on finding out who her killer is. The killer played by Stanley Tucci was equally convincing as Susie's killer,and easy to loathe as a result!! Along with breathtaking scenery, imaginative landscapes and emotional poignancy the movie had me at least glued from start to finish.At just over 2 hours length, at no time did I feel compelled to wish the movie finished already!!! And the kids, while as normal non-committal on a verdict, not once interrupted the viewing with bored groans or sighs and the like. A beautiful movie-must see :)

A Beautiful Poem-Best Friends by Megan Du-Pont

It all comes down to one thing

From that intense feeling

It comes down to this



It's like we are floating between the valleys curves

Taking it slowly round those nervous words

Can you see us growing old together

Through thick and thin even stormy weather



Sweet are your every words

Warm are your embraces

It's your smile that drives me wild

Just that simple touch that says it's alright



Your carressing voice glides over melodies

Such beauty carries through

You've got me spinning through a colour whirl

I love the feeling

I love everything



Too perfect this all seems

Can it ever be so beautiful

Can it all last, will you stay

You are that other part of me

My anchor, my support, my friend

Yummm!!!!facts too!!


A Healthy Addiction?

Chocolate

I’ll admit it.I love chocolate!!!!Usually milk chocolate but occasionally dark chocolate too!!!So here are some facts about dark chocolate and why its good for you!!

Most dark chocolate bars contain antioxidants as well as the compound called epicatechin, which is a member of the plant flavonoids group. These flavonoids keep cholesterol from gathering in blood vessels, reduce the risk of blood clots, and slow down the immune responses that lead to clogged arteries. So, by eating a small amount of dark chocolate daily, you may actually be reducing your risk of a heart attack. Milk chocolate, on the other hand, has been found to have the lowest amount of both epicatechin and antioxidants.

However, not all chocolate is equal. In order to reap the benefits, you have to seek out the chocolate with the highest percentage of cocoa and make sure that the flavonoids have not been destroyed in the manufacturing process, as they sometimes are. Interestingly enough, consuming dark chocolate while drinking milk has also been shown to counteract the positive benefits, just like milk chocolate. And remember, also, that chocolate still is high in calories so be sure to portion a small amount for yourself rather than consuming the whole bar on one sitting (tough, but doable).

Ramblings!

This week has been increasingly hot weather wise,and makes me think about human effect on the changing atmosphere and environment.Is it us that has created these extreme weather patterns?Or is it natural progression of events in the circle of life-attributed to an eternal cycle over the centuries?We have done our major part in the damage done i believe,and need some major shift in thinking to overcome and reverse this!!!But how?I have lived in the city now only 4-5 months and see people wasting so much-in the way they treat their waste,the way they use their vehicles.So many think that someone else will solve all the problems,I can't do anything.They care little for the high cost we impose on the earth.What about the environment and the extinction of animals they say.What can we do?Is it indeed all scaremongering or is it for real?Need i think like Dr.W.Dyer and say there is plentiful for all and always will be if we intend it to be?Hmmm,maybe i think too much!!!!!

Band profiles-Dream Theater

Biography
The technically proficient guitar playing of John Petrucci elevated Dream Theater to the upper echelons of contemporary heavy metal. While its lineup has continuously evolved, the Long Island-based quintet has consistently delivered sharp-edged music. Dream Theater is known for its high-energy concert performances. While they've released several live albums -- Live at the Marquee, recorded at the London club; Live in Japan, recorded during the Music in Progress tour in 1993; and a triple CD and DVD, Live Scenes from New York -- they remain one of heavy metal's most bootlegged bands.

Originally named Majesty by Berklee College of Music students Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy, the band soon expanded with the addition of keyboard player Kevin Moore and vocalist Chris Collins. Releasing an eight-tune demo, Majesty Demo, as Majesty, the group sold 1,000 copies within six months. The departure of Collins in late 1986 left Majesty without a vocalist, and after a long period of auditioning possible replacements, the group settled on Charlie Dominici in November 1987. Changing its name, the group agreed on "Dream Theater," inspired by a now-demolished California movie theater. Signing with Mechanic Records, the group began working on its first full-length album. Delays caused by label mismanagement limited the group to performing at small clubs and bars. Frustrated by its experiences with the label, Dream Theater finally severed its ties with Mechanic.

This was only one drastic change in the band's course of action. Firing Dominici, the group spent the next couple years searching for a vocalist. The search ended in late 1991 when a demo tape from Canadian vocalist James LaBrie, formerly of Winter Rose, arrived. After flying to New York to audition, LaBrie was invited to join the band. Signing with Atco Atlantic (which came to be known as East West), Dream Theater released its second album, Images & Words, in 1992. One of three videos based on songs from the album, "Pull Me Under," became an MTV hit. Although Theater showed considerable growth with their third studio album, Awake, recorded between May and July 1994, the group continued to be hampered by personnel changes. Before the album was mixed, keyboardist Moore left the group to focus on his solo career. Hired as a temporary replacement for the band's Waking Up the World tour, Derek Sherinian later became a permanent member. His first recording with Dream Theater was a 23-minute epic, "A Change of Seasons," written in 1989 and released in September 1995 on the album of the same name.

Following a mini tour, Fix for '96, the members of Dream Theater separated for several months and became involved with a variety of outside projects. Petrucci was the busiest. In addition to joining Portnoy and keyboard player Jordan Rudess in the Liquid Tension Experiment -- a group that included influential bassist/stick player Tony Levin -- Petrucci played guitar with Trent Gardner's Explorers Club and made a guest appearance on Shadow Gallery's Tyranny album. Myung and Sherinian collaborated with King's X vocalist Ty Tabor in the band Platypus. LaBrie worked with Mull Muzzler, a group formed with Matt Guillory and Mike Mangini.

Dream Theater experienced yet another change when Rudess was tapped to replace Sherinian, who had been fired in 1999. The band released the progressive rock-heavy Scenes from a Memory that year, a conceptual piece that followed the story of a 1928 murder of a young woman and how a modern man is haunted by the crime. It was followed by Live Scenes from New York in 2001, which suffered from an unintentional bout with controversy when its original cover featuring the city of New York in flames was pulled due to the events of September 11. The group continued in the progressive metal vein in 2002 with Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, followed by the leaner Train of Thought in 2003 and Octavarium in 2005. The live album Score: XOX was released in 2006 and featured the band backed by a 29-piece orchestra. It was followed a year later by the new studio album Systematic Chaos, and in 2009 by Black Clouds & Silver Linings.

Sherinian went on to record as a soloist and to play with a prog and jazz fusion band, Planet X. Petrucci released an eponymously titled solo album in 2003, featuring accompaniment by Dave LaRue of the Dixie Dregs and Boston-based drummer Dave DeCenso.
