April the Giraffe - Animal Adventure Park- Youtube Q&A

I tried to screen shot most of the answers given by the park, so if you missed the chat here are some of the more important answers (in my opinion) of the questions asked.  I tried to guess what questions were asked.  The parks responses are either next to a yellow or blue name.  These questions were answered by park staff and giraffe keepers. 
Questions that have been answered but I didn't get screenshots of
Do they get to go outside ?  Yes, weather permitting.
Why is Oliver not in the enclosure with her?  He likes to play rough, not play house.

She is not in active labor as of this time 2-26-2017   7 pm EST

Why does she keep lifting her back left leg.

Has her water broke or lost her mucus plug

Will she stop eating if she is in labor?

Will her water break before the delivery or during labor?

Is she in labor?

Will they stop the live feed for delivery?

What does April eat?

Will they help her deliver or intervene?

Why do the keepers not allow Oliver to be in the enclosure while cleaning it. He's a bull and a little bit more aggressive than April

How often is her enclosure cleaned?

Where do you send the baby giraffe after weaning? or What other parks are part of the breeding program?

When will you start to worry about her not delivering?

Is April really pregnant? When is she due?

Are there windows in the barn to allow air in?

Should we be concerned she has not given birth yet? Is she overdue?

Finally Able to Access My Account

I have never had so much trouble with email account access. You would think that I was using my accounts to trade government secrets when all I want to do is post my own crazy thoughts.

So, it appears that you are not allowed to change your phone service and move or you lose access to everything. It doesn't matter that I have the password. It only matters that I never move or change phones. I guess I should be happy that it is difficult to access my blog and emails. Difficult not impossible.

So, after much aggravation and cursing, I am now back to post posts that I am the only one likely to read.

A New Year, A New Beginning

So, another year has come and gone, well, almost. I'm looking forward to what the new year will bring.

I recently started seeing someone, someone who is not my usual type, my usual type being tall, skinny and sometimes goofy looking.

Cheap Makeup Organizer

So, I love having my makeup collection organized, but I hate spending a lot of money on anything, not that I'm not willing to pay more for something if it will actually save me money in the long run.

Fifty Shades of Me

So, I love to color my hair. Not your typical out of the box color either. I love bright colors, pinks purples, and blues. Even a red or green thrown in every once in a while. I figure if it makes me happy then why shouldn't I? Why shouldn't anyone? Sure there are jobs that won't allow it. Why the hell don't they? I mean you would think that someone with pink hair might just be more open to new ideas, have a vivid imagination, think outside of the box so to speak. More and more people have different colored hair these days, by different I mean all colors of the rainbow not just the colors people are born with.
My hair has drawn some attention, people often comment that they love it. It seems to be a game at work to see what color my hair will be next week. My favorite was when driving out of a parking lot, this little girl who is pushing a cart towards the cart rack  screamed, "I LOVE YOUR HAIR!!!!".
I don't do it for other people, but I sure am glad that people sometimes get a kick out of it. I also have a lot of people ask me how I do it, what products do I use, what color is it, etc.
There are several steps to coloring your hair this way. My methods might not be the easiest or the best for everyone, but, here it is.
