Scenes and Signs from the 'Occupy Seattle' Protest Rally

October 9th, 2011 | by Michael Ricciardi

October 8, 2011 Seattle Washington - Signs of the Times Saturday's 'Occupy Seattle' rally ("general assembly") at Westlake Plaza and march on City Hall went off without too many hitches and just two arrests at its near conclusion. I estimate the crowd at its peak to be between 3 and 4000. The Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York nearly a month ago has spread like so much GMO crop pollen, with 'Occupy ________' (fill in city of your choice) rallies and protests spreading around the country. No single message has crystallized yet, although there is such a wide base of anger and resentment that one should not be puzzled at this. Currently, the still somewhat leader-less movement seems to be morphing into simply an "occupy everything" movement

September 23rd, 2011 | by Martyna Święcicka

Dolphins -- do you know anybody who doesn't like them? So cute, so amazing and funny -- that's what they are. What's more -- they're absolutely intelligent and talented! Can I say that they're just fabulous animals? Have any of you swum with dolphins? Can you describe this feeling for those who haven't had so much fortune to do that (yet)? I hope I will try one day!

Ferrets? AWESOME! They're getting more and more popular as pets, and that's nothing surprising! They're not so easy to live with -- you have to be very patient. However, they're great friends with whom you can have a lot of fun! Today, you can see ferrets in the bathroom, in the snow, white ferrets, and others. They're all cool, beautiful, just gorgeous
