A flare of foreign culture and a beautiful poetic song by a great Italian song-writer:
Francesco De Gregori- La Donna Cannone
One can find online translations to the beautiful Lyrics.

Although a song from the forties and terrible World War II, the lyrics speak of Hope, of Peace and of Love.
I like this version because the simple yet beautiful lyrics can be read against the black background, but no images of war and despair are present; thus one can concentrate on the music and lyrics

And here is the song Born Free, sang in 1966 by Matt Monro.
The rendition shows our beautiful live and precious planet, and the words, in my mind, transcend and reflect on the importance of true freedom--freedom of speech, freedom of thought and freedom of movement to us all .

Dolly is one of the most amazing cats I have met in my 25 years career as a Veterinarian.
Dolly is friendly and outgoing and trusting. When she comes into the cats-exam room, she can’t wait to get out of her carrier. First thing she’ll do is give a nice and potent head butting to me and my nurse. Next she’ll proceed to lick our hands, and a small friendly nibble on the nose is a must.
Of course grooming us is essential for the visit. My nurse has long hair and she’ll gladly groom her hair. With me, she’s somewhat puzzled, as I have no hair on my head, alas…. But yet, Dolly is a very tactful cat and she never made an issue from the fact that her Doctor is bald.
Before we can proceed to a complete physical exam, Dolly must have some tummy rubbing; it’s protocol.
I always sing to Dolly her favorite song “Hello Dolly,” and she purrs in delight as she is being serenaded.
I have seen many cats and dogs throughout my long career. It’s amazing to me how they all have their own personalities, they are all individuals that love and want to be loved.
