I am fascinated by animal stories involving unlikely duos, such as friendships between chimps and tigers, monkeys and birds, pigs and just about any other animal. This book includes captivating photographs from all over the world showing how nature can really work in amazing ways. My favorite friendship is the one between an old orangutan, who had lost her mate, and a stray tabby cat. They became instant friends and lived side by side for four years. This is truly a heartwarming book of friendship and love.
Today our claymation program participants finished their projects. We had a great group of creative directors, producers and special effects experts. We've posted their movies to YouTube, check them out:
The Red Cross is working to establish warming centers and/or shelters. A warming center has been established at Trinity Church, 3355 Dunckel Road, in Lansing. The warming centers will serve as temporary facilities, serving light refreshments, in lieu of more sheltering. All residents are advised to seek temporary shelter with family or friends if at all possible, reserving Red Cross facilities for those without that option. The phone number for Red Cross is 517-484-7461 and residents are asked to call this number instead of 911.
A 211 number has been set up to handle non-emergency requests. All residents are asked to use this number in lieu of 911 for non-emergency requests.
Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
