 Despite wanting to let the pictures speak for themselves, I notice that we have to type something, anyway!

This time, my forum friends, I'm posting a picture because I need your help. We saw this succulent with extraordinary flowers today. I've no idea at all what it might be. Googled without any success, using whatever descriptions I could.  Does anyone have any idea?

It's all right folks.....you can stop all the frantic searching. (You were searching, I suppose ?) I kept on Googling (there's a song title for you!) and I found it. You will all be utterly thrilled to know that it is a Stapelia leendertziae.

The Bear in the  Old Donner Pass Highway

A bear was walking across  Rainbow   Bridge  ( Old Hwy  40 at Donner  Summit ,
Truckee in the  Pacific Northwest ) when two cars also crossing the bridge scared the bear into jumping over the edge of the bridge. Somehow the bear caught the ledge and was able to pull itself to safety. Authorities decided that nothing could be done to help the bear that night so they returned the following morning to find the bear sound asleep on the ledge.

After securing a net under the bridge, the bear was tranquilized; he fell into the net and was lowered to the ground.

When he woke up, he walked out of the net.
