This Is Not America

A lot of people would think(especially Americans) that when it comes to webcams, the U.S. has a majority of the cams worldwide. However, this is not the case. The webcam site Webcan Galore has over 10,000 webcams in its directory, with only a little over 3,400 coming from America. Since WU is generally mostly frequented by Americans(and even more importantly to me, that I am an American, most of my blogs have at least 3-4 U.S. cams in them.

This week, with one small but important exception, I'm staying away from the U.S., camwise!

Sandi, I didn't know you had bad weather; that's what I get for being off-WU! :(

I can right-click on the African cam pic, copy/paste the URL on the browser header, and it will work, but it won't work here on WU. I'll have to find a replacement!

I have been watching the storm clouds gather in France, they are getting the weather we had yesterday, I think.
Also penguins on the snow, but no African cam, never has been for me.

Okie-dokie, ycd, I may have to go to plan C on the African cam! May be something there that's blocking the cam being shown here!

I hope the tablet works for you; I like spending time on the internet looking at the latest electronic doodads(can't afford most of them, lol). They sure have come a long way in a short time!

Mornin' Ylee:
All I get on the Nassob cam is a stop sign.
Thanks for the recommendation for the small computer you left on my blog. Looks like what we want, alright.
Price is right too.

Glitchamatic locked up, so I lost what I wrote here earlier! :(( Code,(GO CATS!) Sandi, Trauma, janet, and GG, thanks for stopping by!

I'd appreciate it if anyone can tell me how the new Nassob cam is working on their blog; it's not showing up on the blog, although I can load it on the browser!

Hi Ylee, seems to be overtime week. Well, for you it seems every week is.
The penguins are out and about doing penguiny things. Always a day brightner.

ditto to what Sandi. We don't want anything to happen to you because then how would we be able to see the world.

I hear a cat fight startig so I'd better go check it out. Old kitty is usually not happy with new kitty and new kitty does not understand. He thinks all the hits are playing since he can not hear the growls that go with them :/
tkae care...

Hi Ylee,
Working overtime again? Think of it as an extra boost for Christmas funds:-)
Look after yourself - don't work too hard!

No penguins, and no critter at the feeding cam either.

Good evening! Working OT today, on my way to 16 hours! This will be my only stop on the blogs today, as I don't have time to visit! :(

This computer can't go to glitch mode, so I can't tell if the cams are working or not; the WU cams are OK, though!

I think the penguin cam is a hit, by looking at your responses! :)

Cal, Shore, GG, Pros, janet, YCD, Alley, Sandi, bug, Reno, Todd, wab, and Trauma(whew!), thank you so much for dropping by and leaving a note!

That's a big bull!

Who cares what they are saying nowadays?

GG, that's cuz we're a bunch of Olde Fartes from the Stone Age.

I said something to a coworker a while back about it being 'one of those days' and wishing I had a bottle in my desk drawer like Lou Grant. She laughed, said she wished she had one, too, but then said, "You know, most of our coworkers wouldn't have a clue as to what you were referring to."

Palmetto Bug just got me thinking (oh no), during the 60's, 70's, 80's there were a lot of sayings we all knew. for instance; the devil made me do it, plop plop fizz fizz, where's the beef?, we are two wild n crazy guys, and of course don't squeeze the charmin.

What are todays sayings? I have no idea. Seems like with so many TV channels etc we can't collectively all find the same things to laugh at.

So anyone know what the favorite things are to say these days. Signed, Geezer

Pretty sunset on the Hakai. I wonder if the wave coming in the bay is the Tsunami from the latest bump:

Also curious about the O'Higgins cam. Looks like the penguins are sheltering in the lee of man made structures. I guess "Base" would be a hint, eh?

Crew ship just entering the outer harbor ..

Lee .. calling for some snow up here on Monday .. have heard varying amounts up to 2 inches ..
Member Since: August 17, 2005 Posts: 385 Comments: 36814
Well, I see Alley caught a rather odd looking bird on the feeder cam!

Glad ya'll enjoyed the penguin story! lol

It does help break up the monotony at work.

Toro toro, I see there is some prime steaks on the hoof this morning at the feeder cam. Glad TroyLeslie does not mind feeding the cattle who seem to be frequenting the feeder more than the wildlife these days.

Cool morning but should warm up nicely to around 50 today with a 60 in the forecast as the weekend comes. Going to be a nice day for me tomorrow as well. Glad it will remain on a warming trend for a while now. We sure need it.

Have a great day Ylee. Take care.

I knew it, but still fell for it- hook line and sinker!

Is that Mumble?

got this in an email yesterday and posted it on my blog. With you putting up a penguin cam, it's rather appropos.

I never knew this!
Did you ever wonder why you never see dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica ?
Where do they go?
Well, wonder no more.

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life. If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried. The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

"Freeze a jolly good fellow, freeze a jolly good fellow, freeze a jolly good fel-looooow, which nobody can deny!"

You really didn't believe that I knew anything about penguins, did you?

Oh quit whining I fell for it, too.....

(As Flip Wilson's character, Geraldine, used to say, "The Devil made me do it!" LOL)

Great selection - and I love the penguin cam, and pleased to see the Adelaide cam back again. I like watching the big cruise ships come through!
Member Since: October 29, 2005 Posts: 343 Comments: 31271
Good morning Ylee. Finally got some sleep after the election last night even if it was only from 8 AM to now. Sure feels better anyway. Looking forward to seeing all the new cams up and I agree with the others, the penguin cam will be fun. Many areas are still dark but we will see as the day goes by.

Have a great day. Sure glad the election in the US is over.

Good morning Ylee:
I will be interested in the Hakai Cam once it brightens up. Here is a link to an article a while ago mentioning archeology research in the area: t-Fish-Traps/
Love the Bernardo O'Higgins "PinguinKam" Cam.
Member Since: January 1, 2008 Posts: 220 Comments: 5898
nice grouping, I agree withe the others on the penquin cam. Should be interesting. Oh there a big white hand on a stop sign at the Africa site.

We had our lp gas filled today. Another sign of winter! Suppose to go to 32* tonight. BBrrrr.

baking our fruitcakes now. Had to have something smell good after yesterday.

stay warm..

Penguins. The world definitely needs more penguins.

What a lovely new selection - and what a nice diversion the penguins are. It looks like I just missed the replenishing of the corn on the feeder cam - no one seems to have found it yet!

Penguins!Penguins!Penguins! Yea. And the feeding station, the constant!

Hi Ylee, I think I might be first!! What do ya know there are penguins on the penguin cam! That is very cool. Some cams are still dark, but the ones that are up are neat.

I am glad the election is over, though no matter who became President the next few months are going to be tough! That darn fiscal cliff they are all talking about.
