Frog mouth move with croakbladder that can blow you up

Did you know? That frogs have a croakbladder? Maybe you've been to a pond where the frogs give a loud croak concert. One frog makes almost even more noise than the other. What a croakbladder is? It is a strong stretchable skin. The males frogs have 1 or 2. Or they have a 1 throat bladder and otherwise 2 cheek blowing. They have these to find other females and thus be able to lure. The blowing is getting very big and it looks like the frog is about to explode! Luckily, that doesn't happen, but when you hear the noise of their croaking..

When croaking, air is fed along the larynx, bringing the vocal cords into vibration. So that gives the specific sound. And then every species has its own sound.

Now it is of course also nice to make such a frog. We mimic it with a plastic bag as a croakbladder. At the BSO has Nathalie Mensink prepared this for the children so that they can make their own frog. Read how it was made?

Purple Orchid
#photography People like me feel very gloomy when they give us flowers, and if they are orchids much more. This purple orchid was given to me by a friend of my mother who is also a lover of this type of flower. But they knew that orchids are given according to their color, you need to be careful when giving away to avoid misinterpretations. Purple orchids like these are a nice detail for a lawyer or cleric. If you want to show your love to a woman the specials are the pink. The yellows denote love with a little eroticism, you have to be aware not to be mistaken. White ones to celebrate weddings or married years and red ones denote passion or direct erotic propositions. Something curious about these beautiful flowers.

Are you the director of one's own life?
#iwantthisbooster Since the start of the C madness, we are frightened every day through our square box that we watch with whole tribes. Because everything that is told there is automatically assumed to be true. After all, they will know? I have to think about my own life, raised with my parents' standards and values, influenced by the ideas that we were whispered to by school, teachers, fellow students, especially being tough, smoking, drinking beer, bumping after the ladies and so on. It seems a delightful time for many, but there are certainly also people who ask their questions from their own views.. I believe that you should think about what works for you, who you want to be, what you want to achieve in your life, living from your passion, from your heart, and taking responsibility for your life yourself, and working on your own goals no matter how big or small. Never forget There's only one you can make happy That's you. This is vital, don't be indoctrinated and investigate what you do want to take before you put a syringe in your arm. It's better to try to avoid trouble beforehand than to heal later. Nice cheap too, saves a lot of medical costs.
