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...

SO WHAT WAS IT?

A BLAST FROM MY PAST - SPAWNING BROOK LAMPREYS

UPDATE

We are almost back to normal again. Basically, when Graham re-installed windows on the main CFZ computer yesterday, it was OK, but as soon as we started to put other programmes on it, it started to mess up. At tea time we decided that it was past saving, and so we transferred all the remaining data onto the back-up computer which until now we had used for video and sound editing only. It does mean that we have no back-up computer, and will not have until after the Weird Weekend when we shall buy another one.

Because of all our data back ups, practically nothing was lost except one of my address books which waslost because we saved the wrong one :(

We should be back to normal by the end of the day.

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

http://cryptozoologynews.blogspot.com/

On this day in 1542 Richard Grenville was born. Grenville (who lived in the CFZ's own town of Bideford) helped to defend Britain during the Spanish Armada, but will forever be remembered for his part in the failed new world colony of Roanoke Island aka 'the lost colony'. Mystery surrounds the fate of the final members of the colony, there are theories they integrated themselves into Native American populations, that they were killed by disease or that they attempted to sail back to England. The whole incident inspired the Al Stuart song Lord Grenville:

I would like to thank Dale, publically, for his help during this current crisis. You are a good man Mr D

UPDATE

It looks like the main computer is unsalvageable, and that we shall have to start again. We will be reformatting the disk and installing windows and then all the other programmes we need. So today I shall be largely out of action...
