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...

LIZ bids au revoir to the Downses and gets down to business....

The day arrived at last, then: yesterday Jon and Corinna Downes, Devon and cryptozoology's answer to Hart to Hart and Dempsey and Makepeace, left headquarters for sunny Texas. Their mission - which they chose to accept - is to document and investigate the existence of the infamous blue dog. I'm sure we all wish them Godspeed and good luck.

However, there are more pressing concerns back home. Graham phoned me earlier on this evening to discuss our managing of the blog while our glorious leaders are away and I'm afraid we have a very serious problem.

Graham has beer tonight to help him work and I don't! Please send all donations in recyclable aluminium c/o the CFZ address and I'm sure he'll pass them on to me....

Graham's note: yes, indeed. After the blog "proofreading" was done, I put my feet up and had a couple of cans of the somewhat strangely-named Worthington's Creamflow Draft Bitter.

Liz's note: Well, I had chocolate cake, so there....
