I was just notified that "Typhon" had left a message on my old CFZ blogs that had mentioned Griffins and Arimaspai, and wondered how I could say that Griffens were ostriches. There was a problem when those old CFZ blogs were set up in that I did not approve the comments myself, Jon did, and so it could take years before I became aware of any certain comment if I wasn't careful. In this case, it did take years and the blog entry has already been printed up in last year's CFZ yearbook.
However if "Typhon" would like to email me privately we could get together on the subject after this long delay, and hopefully get a new blog to come out of it. As a matter of faxct, I do not consider the Griffin to be one thing but an amalgam of several things (typical of me as you should know by now!)
