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...

A damsel in distress makes her gratitude known

Liz Clancy would like to say a big thank you to Graham Inglis. Though a split infinitive is no match for her razor-sharp brain, numbers really ain't her thing. Neither are HMRC's tax returns and Graham has cheerfully come to her aid two years running now. Thank you!

HMRC's tax returns are nobodies thing. I have known accountants and even HRC staff, who cringe in fear of the damn incomprehensible things.
In the bad old days when I had to complete such evil documents, I made the discovery that the easiest way to deal with them was to gather all your receipts and other documents and visit the local HMRC office, dump the lot on someone's desk and state quite clearly, "Me no understand". I was normally in the office for around an hour and came out with the forms duly completed for me and everything was in order for another year.
I work on the principal that they get well paid by us (the tax payer) to do a job, so why the hell should I do their for them. I would highly recommend that every self employed person adopts this same attitude. It works.
