Non-Bellicose Belarus Bear and more…

Not sure why the artist from Belarus chose a black cat behind a house, along with swans and tulips. It looks like the artwork of elementary school children or what you would find in a nursery. Cuba is unabashedly promoting their Cuban cigar industry, while New Zealand shows off their odd kiwi birds front and center.  See what you think of these bears, some may appear bellicose while others seem tame.

And now for something very different…I LOVE my country very much, as I’m sure most people do from their respective countries represented by the Buddy Bears.  Here’s the FIRST verse of the Star Spangled Banner which is sung at the beginning of all games of all sports, professional and amateur.  I believe it is a good tradition, with hand to the heart standing at quiet attention:

“Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?…

Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,

O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?”
