Tagging Bears and Funny Farmers

Hey, Cotton here.  Jan must be using a mini camera.  I had to bend down to get my face in the photo.  Okay, actually I was bending down to pick up a treat.   But same effect.  I look short.

Jan is still hogging the computer for her projects, but we want you to know we've been thinking of you, so she gave us 5 seconds .... um, maybe that's 5 minutes?  Anyway, I have to post quickly.

This is a video we've seen a number of times and it always makes us laugh.  Rick Mercer helps to tag a black bear mom and snuggles her 3 very young cubs. It's a highly technical procedure (snicker!) and involves an aluminum snow shovel for protection and a jab stick for .. well, for jabbing.  Tagging works best if Mom bear sleeps through the tag exchange. Enjoy.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

And speaking of tagging , we need to be tagged.  Well, not us exactly, but our photos do.  Jan can't find us.  Of course, she can't find much of anything around here, but she claims being able to find our photos by a name search would help with our blog and designs. 

If you remember (yeah, right, as if your memory is any better than ours!), a couple of years ago Jan spent days tagging all the photos on the computer in Photoshop Elements so she could find our photos easily. But PE went berserk and had to be reinstalled. When it was, the tags were missing. So Jan is reluctantly tagging all our photos in the Picasa program - on the computer (not online).  Hopefully, this time the tags will stick with the files.

2006 is done. We figure she should be finished 2012 in time to add 2013.

Seriously, this is just one of several projects on her to-do list, the list we keep hiding and she keeps rewriting. We're keeping up with blogging news as best we can, while popping in and out and blog hopping when the typing chair is vacated for a short break, so don't think we're ignoring you.

Have a fun weekend.  We're going to catch some extra zzzzzzs.  Watching Jan tag photos is booorrrring!

Saturday Blog Hop.  


  1. Highly entertaining video! Happy Caturday! xoxo

  2. We dare annyone ta do cat-tagging like that!

  3. Those cubs were adorable! Let us know how the tagging with Picasa goes. We may ask Mommy to do the same as she gets sore eyes trying to locate our photos.

  4. Our human remembers that episode of the Rick Mercer report. :-)

    He'll do anything on his show, it's crazy. LOL.

  5. I didn't know this show at all, very funny !

  6. That is a cute video! Y'all have a tagging good time this weekend!

  7. That was quite the video. I don't think the little fellers liked being woken from their nap BOL! What complainers ;)

    Waggin at ya,

  9. That was a funny video and fun to watch, but burrrr! It must have been cold up there! The cubs are so cute.

    Have a good weekend!


  10. We love that video - a fun but scary project.

    Mom has a big mess in her iPhoto album. Trying to find anything is truly hit or miss. One of these days she will have to organize it.

    Have a good weekend.

  11. My mommy hasn't learned to make or access her albums she DOES have, in iPhoto. At almost 7000 photos, she said she feels your pain.

  12. Oh please don't mention photos and tagging!!!!! I am clueless as to how it all works. It's a miracle anything gets posted lol Will watch video now :)

  13. Great video! And good luck with tagging. Sounds like this will take furever to do it.

  14. Mom has over 40000 pictures of just us (which isn't counting her nature pictures) and she names her files.


  15. Shoot! We couldn't see the video ... here or over at Utube! So we can't report about that! We hope Jan can figure out the pictures!

  16. What a great video!
    Photos and organisation..the two words don't actually get together here! LOL
