Video of Goat vs. Little Lion at Schramm Farms

goat eats kid in lion costumeI am not one for watching and sharing animal videos.  But, I will make exceptions … my friend Olga shared this video of her daughter visiting Schramm Farm and meeting the goats.  Olga’s daughter was wearing her lion costume to visit the farm.

This goat was a fan of this little lion and Olga happened to be recording their encounter.  The little lion is completely fine – a little shocked, but fine.  I am sharing this video with the permission of the parents.


Goat got her good! @pogoda13

Laser Gaga Costume Contest @ The Carnegie Science Center

Poker Face (Lady Gaga song)

Yes, its true the Carneige Science Center has a laser show set to Lady Gaga, appropriately named Laser Gaga.  In honor of Halloween and all things lady Gaga – the Science Center is hosting a Laser Gaga Costume Contest – put on your best poker face and head down to the science center – there will be prizes for the best costumes.

Please note the fine print on this one – sorry folks – don’t wear meat to the science center:

  • While we encourage your costumes to be creative, they must be appropriate for a family-friendly establishment.
  • Costumes must NOT feature organic materials such as raw meat, anything alive, expose skin in a provocative manner, or use offensive language or graphics.
  • Any masks worn should not cover the entire face.
  • Carnegie Science Center has the right to refuse any costume that it deems inappropriate.
