Dolly the Sheep


On this day in 1996, Dolly the sheepβ€”the first mammal to have been successfully cloned from an adult cell, was born at the Roslin Institute in Scotland.

Professor Sir Ian Wilmut, who was the embryologist that led the science team that cloned Dolly; in fact, he was the one who suggested the name. He believed that Dolly Parton, who was the singer of such famous country songs as β€œI Will Always Love You” was a fitting name because the sheep had been made using cells from a mammary gland. He thought it would be difficult to think of mammary glands that were more impressive than those of Dolly Parton. πŸ˜‚ 🀣

Have a fun-filled Friday and remember - find time to laugh!

It's good to know about historical scientific breakthroughs - thanks for keeping us abreast of these.

Someone's Sum1 😁 celebrating his 9th Anniversary at WDC! Just goes to show you the power of a warped sense of humor. πŸ˜‚ 🀣

He's been brightening up WDC for years now. Let's return the favor by dropping by his port and leaving a bit of encouragement. I'm sure a note, a review or an MB would be appreciated.


Happy Anniversary, Jim


Happy 9th WDC Anniversary Jim!!

I took Macy to the Dog Park this morning and watched her play with her buddies...

As I watched, one of the dogs began chasing its tail and I thought, Dogs are easily amused...

Then I realized I'm watching a dog chase its tail! *FacePalm*

It's the small things that keep us humans, grounded. I'm so glad I was taught to embrace the simple things in life, enjoying nature in all of it's beauty and grace, and loving my animals.

I laughed at this comment it is SO true! Then I forgot to tell you. Lol. Looks like my old lab, I miss the dynamic duo chocolate and golden labs we had. I don't miss their tripping me constantly though!

I've never heard of American loyalty day. I grew up with May 1 being 'May day' and giving flowers. I'd pick flowers from peoples yards and then give them to the owners, saying 'Happy May Day'.
