Today is Global Tiger Day

This is way off from my usual postings, but I am still working on my YA fiction book about canned hunts and tigers are popular in that category.

I received this stunning photo in my email this morning from WWF (World Wildlife Fund). Bhutan, where the high-resolution camera trap caught this image of a wild tiger, is home to an estimated 103 wild tigers. This tiny country works to ensure tiger safety and natural breeding against a backdrop of poaching and illegal wildlife traders.

Bhutan is probably the smallest country where wild tigers live and is fast becoming one of the biggest conservation champions.

Bhutan is located on the southern slopes of the eastern Himalayas, landlocked between the Tibet Autonomous Region to the north and the Indian states of Sikkim, West Bengal, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh to the west and south (per google.com).

Sick of Bachelorette, Visit Midnight, Texas this Summer

Filmed on location in Albuquerque, New Mexico and other locations including the Castañeda Hotel, Las Vegas and Rio Roca Fria Hotel, Midnight, Texas is a cross between True Blood and Twilight.

Midnight is actually a town where those who are a little “different” can live safely, away from the outsiders who would normally give them trouble. And you know what they say about “safety in numbers.”

Manfred Bernardo is a psychic and gypsy fortune teller. He’s played by François Arnaud (you’ll probably recognize him from Blindspot and The Borgias) and is on the run from a voice on his phone and is led to Midnight, Tex. by his grandmother (a ghost who lives in his caravan RV). He’s not there long when there’s a murder and being a powerful psychic, the victim, visits him in his rented house.

The special effects are being handled by some of the best special and visual effects people in the business. They grab you and pull you in within the first three minutes of the show and won’t disappointment you during the next 48 minutes. Don’t miss the last twelve minutes if you really want to know what the residents of Midnight, Texas are all about.

The stories of the next ten episodes are in the capable hands of eight great writers including Charlaine Harris, who also penned the True Blood books and the book series, Midnight, Texas is based on.

Other cast members include Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, and Peter Mensah, who played Kibwe in True Blood.

Midnight, Texas, 10 episodes, 10pm ET, Mondays, one hour
