WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

Well, this is it..

This afternoon I have to go to the NatWest bank in Bideford and withdraw the balance of what used to be my account... if they let me.

There should be no reason why not, but then again until two days ago there was no reason for them to cancel my account.

If I can't get the money, I will have to start selling things.

We are going to the AES bug show this weekend, and I hope we will make enough money from selling `Exotic Pets` to tide us over. If we don't I really don't know what we shall do.

I feel that I am only feet away from an abyss - an abyss that I have not sensed for many years. At the moment I am terrified. My life has been turned upside down, and I am so disorientated that I really don't know what is real at the moment.

This should be an exciting experience for a fortean, who has spent his life looking at surreal mega-possibilities, but it isn't. I feel physically sick, and I really don't know what the future has to offer.

We are away until saturday night, so don't worry if this is the last blog for a time.

Hang in there mate; and I'm sure that the bank will have to give you the money if they are closing the account.
We are all thinking of you and Corinna at this time.

Best
Nick

I’d like to have your opinion about a discovery I have maken.
If you have google Earth go to 39°12’53.00 N and 82°51’12.50 E…
We are in the Desert of Taklamakan. What do you see?
I see a 23 meters hole. And it’s too regular. I don’t think it’s a lake…
If you are non able to find I’ll send you images to a E-mail address.
Maybe the Allghoi khorkhoi's hole?
I have known maybe someone you know is interested to this...
