Part one is here.

The theme of this year’s parade was “Echoes of Success.”

All of the floats in this parade are required to have all surfaces covered by natural materials, such as flowers, plants, seaweed, seeds, bark, vegetables, or nuts. For more, see the 2014 post Decorating parade floats, at my journal.

Well, the post I’d planned got a bit long, so I split it (part two will follow). The theme of this year’s parade was “Echoes of Success.”

All of the floats in this parade are required to have all surfaces covered by natural materials, such as flowers, plants, seaweed, seeds, bark, vegetables, or nuts. For more, see the 2014 post Decorating parade floats, at my journal.

From the linked article: Sinbad is the son of veteran kakapo Richard Henry, who was found as an adult in Fiordland in 1975 when his species was believed to be extinct.

There are only 125 known kakapo left. Each has been given a name (list at Wikipedia) by the Kakapo Recovery Programme.

On Monday night's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, David Tennant answered the call, but the Doctor was unhelpful. (Video is six minutes and forty-four seconds, and contains profanity.)
