On February 7, 1930 a lion cub was born at Goebel's Wild Animal Farm, an animal theme park and training facility in Thousand Oaks, California. Many of the wild animals there were destined for Hollywood to appear in movies. At the tender age of three weeks (!) this little lion cub was sold to Roscoe Turner, an airplane pilot, to help promote the Gilmore Oil Company. The cub was promptly named "Gilmore."

Living in an area where there is an abundance of wildlife can be a real challenge for pet owners. This isn't just because of disease that can be carried by squirrels or the stink a skunk can raise.

It is estimated that 3 billion people in the world wear flip flops. Since they don't last forever they end up in landfills, and worse, in the oceans. The Indian Ocean alone washes many millions of discarded flip flops onto the beaches around Kenya. Artists there have been taking the old footwear and re-purposing them into usable objects -- most fantastically into beautiful animal sculptures.
