Lily the black bear from Ely, Minnesota

We had a fabulous day glued to the internet~ We were waiting to catch a peek and listen to the adorable cries coming from Lily's cub that was born today!! Lily is a 3-year-old black bear that lives in her den, near Ely, Minnesota. Doug Hajicek installed a LIVE cam in her den so that we could watch the exciting, much waited for event! Unfortunately, there were sooooooo many people that were watching--we could not get on the web site for the live viewing. We ended up watching it after the fact, via youtube.....and we watched it over and over and over again! It is almost midnight and there are no longer any problems watching Lily via live cam. She is relaxed and seems to be sleeping. Every once in awhile, you can hear the cub cry and then Lily gets moving around.....well, I guess we better get to bed. This will be  a day that Jelly Man will not soon forget!! This was such a wonderful learning experience for the entire family!

Here is the link to catch views of Lily and her cub.

Lily can also be found on youtube!

First Photos of 2010

I cannot believe 2010 is here!! 2009 was here and gone in the blink of an eye! On New Years Eve, I was feeling a little apprehensive about letting go of 2009.....I decided I need to just look at it as a clean slate, take a deep breath and just jump into the New Year with excitement!
Wishing all of you a New Year filled with lots of love, laughter and excitement!
