Amazing Honey Bee, A creature WE can not live without

As we all know, without honey bees as well as other bees, we as humans can not survive easily. Bees of all varieties live on nectar and pollen which they gather from flowering plants. Without bees, pollination would be difficult and time consuming - it is estimated that one-third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination. The cameraman was able to catch some great footage of just how hard the honey bee works to gather the pollen which you can see attached to its legs just below its wings. A very fascinating insect.

Dog terrified of windstorm Climbs into Owners lap

Poncho our rescue dog from Mexico has some definite quirks. She is brave when things enter our yard, but with storms, she is definitely not brave. Recently there was a wind storm with gust near 40 miles per hour. With that trees were rustling in the yard, and wind was whistling through parts of the house . Poncho came charging onto Brent's lap and pushed against him as hard as she could. Shaking with trembling ears and body she would not move for about an hour. Even comforting could not stop the shaking. Once the winds died down a bit she then went into her bed and was given a treat and her favourite toy.

Drunk Divers: The effects of nitrogen narcosis 2m04s

Drunk Divers: The effects of nitrogen narcosis

A group of divers from the Fraser Valley Scuba Club near Vancouver Canada had arranged with a local university to experience the effects of nitrogen narcosis in the decompression chamber. Nitrogen narcosisis is a reversible alteration in consciousness that occurs while diving at depth. It is caused by the anesthetic effect of certain gases at high pressure. Narcosis produces a state similar to drunkenness (alcohol intoxication), or nitrous oxide inhalation. It can occur during shallow dives, but does not usually become noticeable at depths less than 30 meters (100 ft). When the group arrived at the chamber location, they were given a briefing of how everything would play out and what to expect. With very rigid rules of what was allowed inside the chamber, everyone was required to don scrubs. The first group to go, was the one in this video. All friends and one father and daughter. Upon the descent, created by compressing the air inside the chamber, ear protection was required because of the loud hissing of compression. With the compression of the air, the temperature inside increased to around 90 ' f, quite warm. As the depth approached 100 feet, the narcosis was becoming noticeable in some of the divers, giggling was a sure sign. One of the women did have some issues equalizing her ears, but toughed it out and made it through. At the maximum depth reached of 150 feet, everyone's voices were as if they had inhaled helium, very squeaky, which was quite funny. Apparently caused by the pressure on the vocal cords along with sound waves being altered from the internal pressures of the chamber. Upon ascent, the inverse occurred, air expands causing fog, and the temperatures dropped to around 50 degrees f. After the experience, everyone talked about what they felt during the narcosis time, some laughed and some felt somewhat normal. A great experience to realize how you feel when "narc'd" so as a diver you can work through the feeling if you needed to deal with an emergency while at depth.

Victoria, capital of British Columbia, sits on the craggy southern end of Vancouver Island. With abundant parkland, it’s known for outdoor activities. The city's British colonial past shows in its Victorian architecture, including stately Craigdarroch Castle mansion. Butchart Gardens, with 55 acres of vivid floral displays, plus statuary, water features and a carousel, is one of many formal gardens in the city. Just around the corner from Victoria's Inner Harbour, Fisherman's Wharf is a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. This unique marine destination offers food kiosks, unique shops and eco-tour adventures in the heart of the working harbour. Wander down the docks with your lunch, buy seafood fresh off the boat, see moored pleasure vessels and float homes, and watch as fishing vessels unload their wares. While enjoying a great fish and chips meal, Brent could hear some commotion a short distance away on the docks so he wandered over and was quite entertained by what he saw. This young woman and her friend were visiting fishermans wharf and found out they could feed the local harbour seals and sea otters. After purchasing some herring they both proceeded to take a turn at feeding, which seemed more scary for the girl than the seal. It was a lot of fun watching this and made for some great laughs. Brent the cameraman and his wife enjoyed this as it now has been banned to feed the seals and otters in the harbour.

Dog JUMPS FOR JOY when its time for a walk 1m34s

Dog JUMPS FOR JOY when its time for a walk

Poncho our rescue dog from Mexico loves her walks. 11 years ago while vacationing in Playa Del Carmen with my kids,11 and 15 at the time, little did i know what they would bring me to the condo the day after Christmas day. The surprise i got was both kids saying "dad guess what we found? " Of course i never guessed a dog, well there were two actually, about 3 weeks old, cute little things. So being how i am, we went through the process to bring them home to Vancouver Canada. Poncho has become a great pet with some silly characteristics ,all very loving. Her sister i had to give to another family as we didn't have the space at the time. One of her happiness traits is her jumping, as you will see in the video. When she first starts to sense you are heading to the garage for her leash, the excitement begins. She starts snorting, dancing and jumping all over. The great part, is once the leashing begins, she sits quite still ,knowing once its on.... away we go. A great pet Poncho is, but she sure is a puller when it comes to walk time. Hence my right arm longer than the other ;-)
