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...

KITHRA WRITES: I have been offered a place in a Sheltered Housing scheme and, as these places don’t come around too often, I’ve decided to take it. However, I’ve yet to get a definite moving date, although it will be within the next month, and possibly sooner.

I am sure that everyone in bloggoland will join me in offering our very best wishes to Kithra for her move, and will be looking forward to her return to inthe internet...

Many thanks, Jon. I'm moving on Saturday and my ISP should be reconnected on 16th June.

As you can imagine I'm very busy packing, but have taken this morning off to try and recover from yesterday's hard work. It's left me feeling exhausted and ill, but I know I'll recover!
