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...

I AM GOING TO LINCOLNSHIRE - I MAY BE SOME TIME

Corinna and I will be leaving Woolsery sometime before noon for the long (and more than slightly tedious) drive to the East Midlands. Tonight we stay with my mama-in-law in Oakham, the county town of Rutland for those of you interested in such matters. Tomorrow I sleep in a travelodge with a P.G.Wodehouse paperback and maybe a laptop (and quite possibly a teensy weensy brandy or three) whilst Corinna and the girls do whatever it is womenfolk do on the night before a wedding.

For the record, on the night before mine back in 2007 Graham and I spent most of the time trying to eject the egregiously drunk Simon Wolstencroft, now departed from this mortal plain, from my kitchen where he sat, holding forth in an embarrasing manner to various of my nearest and dearest whilst dressed like a mariachi bandsman. But that is another story.

The bloggo is now in the excellent hands of Lizzy Clancy lizzy@cfz.org.uk and Graham Inglis graham@cfz.org.uk so whatever transpires from now on is now't to do with me guv. Now't to do with me until Saturday night that is.

Byeeeeeeeeeeeeee
