This past weekend my wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary (WOO-HOO) with our two girls at the The Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vermont.
If you’re ever up this way you gotta check this high-end joint out. The Equinox was built in 1769 in a beautiful valley with Mt. Equinox in the background. It has attracted a ton of celebrities and politicians since then.
In 1863 and 1864, Mary Todd Lincoln and her children were sent up there to stay and hide out, from the Confederates, during the civil war. Her son, Robert Todd Lincoln, built a kick-ass summer manse, called Hildene, right down the street.
Check out the first-generation keypad that his granddaughter had installed by her bedside at Hildene.
We truly had a fabulous 3-day anniversary weekend in Vermont just chilling out, shopping, swimming, hiking, eating and relaxing together with the wife and kids.
One day after hiking through the trails of Mt Equinox, we went back to our hotel room and watched TV. We caught the tale end of an Animal Kingdom show which was airing on the Discovery HD channel.
PAIRING UP FOR SUCCESS…
Some animals form a close partnership with other kinds of animals. These pairings are called symbiotic relationships. In a symbiotic relationship, the animals depend on each other to survive. One animal helps the other meets it needs.
For example, small animals called cleaner shrimp have found a way of forming relationships with fish around corral reefs. As the name suggests, the shrimp clean the fish. Here’s how it works.
The cleaner shrimp hang out at what scientist refer to as a cleaning station. A fish stops by, then the shrimps hops right inside the fish’s mouth.
The shrimp uses its tiny claws to pick stuff off the fish’s mouth and body, which includes some tasty dead skin, tiny pieces of food, and teenie-weenie creatures that can hurt the fish.
It works both ways the fish gets a nice needed cleaning, and the little shrimp enjoys a hearty meal of fish trash.
Another example…small birds, called Plovers, are also in the cleaning business. They have a big gigantic customer, called the crocodile. The crocs have a long snout and big sharp teeth and little stubby paws that make it impossible for the crocs to clean there own teeth.
This is where the Plover comes in. When the croc opens it’s mouth , the plover hops in right. The croc does not snap its snout shut. Instead, it lets the Plover eat small, harmful animals that have attached themselves to the crocodiles’ teeth.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, Staying Alive, Staying Alive…
All animals want to do one thing – survive and thrive in the wild. Some do that by living alone. Others live in flocks ,herds, hives, packs or schools. Some animals both large and small, know that the best to staying alive is to live with or near other kinds of animals.
At first glance, these teammates don’t seem to make sense. But if you look more closely you’ll soon see that these animals help one another find food, shelter, and safety. They make the most out of various differences. These unlikely partners get the most out of life.
