I just received the following e-mail:
Hello to all,
please remember my www subsite on fatal snake bites in Europe
I would like to ask you to check the site and if you have new or missing
data to mail those to me (also links to sites are welcome).
Thanks for your attention!
mit freundlichen Grüßen/with kind regards
So, despite not having heard of the chap, I did just that. Basically, being the first day of the Weird Weekend, I have lots to do, and so I got up at about 6:30 to do the bloggo. I also had indigestion after having necked back too much brandy last night, and so didn't sleep too well. Biggles isnt very well at the moment either, so I came downstairs to check on him. He went out for a pee and then bumbled into the office with me. The two of us sat down and looked at Mario's site.
I had never actually thought aboput snakebite fatalities in Europe, and was surprised to find that there had not been one in the UK since 1975...
