Jumpers For Penguins

A lovely story about these sweet old grannies in County Durham, England knitting jumpers for the even cuter tiny fairy penguins in Tasmania to keep them warm and protect them from oil spills following a request by the Tasmania Conservation Trust. Cute x 2 !!!



Look at the model penguin the grannies have got - how cute is that ! I trawled the net to try and find a picture of one of the real penguins in a jumper like that. Although I found a few, they weren't very clear or good. Just as well I think. Jumper on the left + penguin on the right = death by cuteness ...

The full story is here : http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/wear/6367787.stm

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so
much about this, such as you wrote the e-book in
it or something. I feel that you simply can do with some p.
c. to power the message home a bit, but other than that, that is
wonderful blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
