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, after an eye test and a long period of waiting, they’re finally here. My glasses! Here is a picture of them that I did on the computer:
It’s not that good, but they’re glasses, and that’s what counts. The reason I need them is because I’m a bit more short-sighted in one eye than the other, and it was making it hard for me to see. So Mum and I popped down to our local Tesco, got my eye test done, and voila! Glasses needed.

I’ll upload a picture of me with them on soon. For the moment, however, you guys will just have to put up with the drawing. Love Harriet!

Glasses are great, I use mine to fool people into thinking I'm inteligent and take them off to make a point ala Robin Day (who you're probably too young to remember, I know I am).
