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...

THE GONZO BLOG DOO-DAH MAN STARTS HIS HOLIDAYS IN A CLOUD OF SMOKE


Graham at the helm, and today's shaping up to be a fairly normal day, albeit with Jon and Corinna away on some across-the-UK travels. Yesterday was a tad unusual, as the journey to the airport was hindered when we smelt a stink of electrical burning in the car, and then it started to fill with smoke. I indicated and pulled over, and we bailed out of the car as a precaution.
 
While the smell and smoke soon dissipated, we then found the car wouldn't start again. Alternative transport was rustled up for Jon and Corinna, while I stayed with the broken-down car awaiting roadside rescue.
 
Anyhow, it's all part of the rich tapestry of life, I suppose!
 
And here (a tad late) is the news:
