This is because people used to believe that the dew had magical properties and so anyone who washed in it would have a beautiful complexion for the rest of the year! (Nowadays, most people simply use one of the myriads of potions on offer to keep their skin looking good or may even resort to the more drastic option of Botox!) However, this little panda, who's delighted to have been crowned Queen of the May, can have a long lie on this special day as she couldn't look any cuter or more beautiful if she tried!Apr 30, 2014

This year’s Global Greening, an extremely clever and effective form of marketing whose aim is to get people talking about Ireland and then persuading them to visit the Emerald Isle, will be the biggest to date with 100 landmarks taking part. Amongst those going green for the first time are the Holmenkollen ski jump in Oslo, the Hydro, the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign and the Great Wall of China, while Petra, the ‘rose red city’ will become the ‘grass green city’ for one day only to celebrate the national day of the Irish.

Yang Guang, Edinburgh Zoo’s endearing male panda, has decided that, if it was good enough for a flock of sheep from Bathgate last year, then he might as well join in the fun this year by turning a rather fetching combination of shades of green! (I actually made that one up but this is what he’d look like if it were true!) As you can see, he's also thoroughly enjoying a special St. Patrick's Day treat - bamboo and shamrocks!

140 viewsIn the weeks leading up to The Oscars, held in the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood, interest and anticipation amongst the entertainment community and film fans around the world builds to fever pitch. By the time the ceremony finally takes place on the evening of 2nd March, hundreds of actors and celebrities will have descended on LA for the 86th Academy Awards ceremony, undoubtedly the most glittering night of the year.

Each year, there are always surprise winners and losers. However, this year, there’s one category whose winner is, in my opinion, pretty much a foregone conclusion - Best Actor in a Black and White Film. I predict that The Oscar, or perhaps it should be The Bearscar, will be won by Tian Tian, the National Zoo’s beloved giant panda who, as you can see, has already written his acceptance speech!

182 viewsAccording to Chinese tradition, giant pandas are named on their 100 day. And so, at a ceremony held today (1st December) at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo to celebrate their panda cub’s first 100 days of life, it was announced that her name was Bao Bao!

Bao Bao, which means ‘treasure’ or ‘precious’ in English, was one of five Mandarin Chinese names offered for a public online vote in which more than 100,000 people took part. The incredibly cute baby panda, who is expected to remain in Washington for four years before going to live at Wolong, will make her public debut in January 2014. I can’t wait to see her!
