All The Best


I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Think We Should Kill Elephants? Think Again. An Elephant That Paints!

I am stunned, and if you are not... Do me a favor and pass this on! After all, this is the Elephant Bar.

    this looks to me like the elephant retreat in Chieng Mai Thailand, I have been there, I have seen the elephants paint, I have seen lots and lots of other elephant art work. This is not a trained act. Elephants are way smarter than people give them credit for.

  2. Amazing!

    Leaves one speechless.

    And the dolphins....

    And the wide universe....

  3. Deuce, your elephant has control. The pictures in the Gallery don't show that control.

  4. Well, I take that back. Some do show a kind of control, but not to draw a representative figure.

  5. I looked at the video looking for some trick. Sometimes you want to believe something. I looked at it three times. I would like to see it myself. It is amazing if true.

  6. That's what I began to wonder, if he wasn't following an outline or something.

  7. Damn!

    I've read they are about the only ones other than us that mourn their dead, and kind of try to bury them too sometimes.

    And I read, can't remember whether it was the dolphins, or the whales, they think they have deciphered that they have names for one another, in their communication.

  8. Elephants commonly pass time by doodling on the ground with sticks and pebbles. Sociologists have trained chimps to use sign language and the chimps have taught other chimps to sign.

  9. Russia is adamantly opposed to either Romania or Georgia getting on the NATO track. With nine former Soviet bloc countries already in NATO, Russia fiercely opposes the eastward expansion of an alliance it denounces as a Cold War relic.

    Germany and France have spoken out against putting Ukraine on the list just yet, fearing upsetting already strained ties with Russia, a major supplier of energy to Europe.

    NATO is expected to formally invite Croatia and Albania to join the alliance. Macedonia also is on the list but could be blocked by Greece.

    Raising Hopes

  10. Roger that. Neat break 'though.

  11. not only does he paint....he works for peanuts!

  12. Now, that was a good one! And so obvious---you must have the only working brain aroud here, Ash:)
