Only a few hours left to make this dream come true…scroll down to the end and why not contribute a few $$…Gordon is only $4500 away from making this happen….

A review

SOURCE:  OVERLAND MAGAZINE

This book has been painstakingly edited by Gordon Bowman, the son of the author, who discovered his father’s rough manuscript after his death. He had always said to his father he should write a book about the adventures he and his wife had in the 1950s travelling from Canada to Peru and back on a 150cc Lambretta.

Humpback Whale Shows AMAZING Appreciation After Being Freed From Nets


Michael Fishbach, co-founder of The Great Whale Conservancy (GWC), narrates his encounter with a young humpback whale entangled in local fishing nets.

At first, the animal appeared to be dead, yet Fishbach investigated and quickly discovered that the poor creature was tangled in a fishing net. The humans had to act fast; what began as a tragedy soon became a thrilling rescue as Fishbach and his crew labored to free the young whale. The entire encounter was caught on videotape and later narrated by Fishbach himself.

This young whale knows how to show appreciation by treating them to a magnificent aerial spectacle after it was finally freed.

AMAZING story of courage….
