Friends of ours are overseas at the moment and have asked me to care for their houseplants while they are away. I ended up putting them all in our bedroom: I'm rather enjoying living in the jungle!
The 'bearcam' that I've watched in recent years is live again now, too, and I'm loving it. There are currently six cameras live, giving different views of Brooks River, the salmon swimming up it and the bears catching them. Today I had a lot of fun watching a mum with three yearling cubs (i.e. ones born last year) spend half and hour or so at the lower river.
If you'd like to join in the fun, the feeds are here. Having so many feeds running at once might slow your computer down - if that happens you can click on the 'Youtube' logo at the bottom left of the feed of your choice. That will open that camera's feed in a separate tab on your browser and you can close the main page down. I find it helpful to open the comments feed in a separate tab - clicking across to that when something interesting happens is very helpful in understanding what's going on.
