Oh, right.

I'm glad to see that, because I'd packed all my mother's crockery into that box before I read the label. I'm still not sure what was in it before... something to do with livestock improvement and acronyms.


What the hell?

Ignorant Ornithology: Helmut

My Mum just emailed me this photo.

"I put 5 clips in my hair and he loves to undo each one and drop it in front of my nose."

The Bridge Street Bridge, Hamilton

How it got it's name is a conundrum.

I must get into this again. It looks so easy on my new computer. There's even a button to press when I'm smiling.

An Innocent Pastime: My Farm.

 The packet promised free chillies, so I planted its contents.

It is growing magic chillies that my cellphone camera cannot focus on.

Ignorant Ornithology: the Gannet.

The Gannet. My second favorite bird.

“My favourite bird's the gannet:
It's the best bird on the planet.
It's better than knots
And guillemots
And beats razorbills by lots and lots.

“Yes, my favourite bird's the gannet:
It just can't be beaten, can it?
It hatches on ledges,
Where it stays till it fledges
And grows a physique
With a fabulous beak.
Then it takes to the air
And soars way up there,
Till it reaches a summit,
Whence it dives in a plummet
And down with a S W I S H !
It catches a fish.

“Yes, my favourite bird's the gannet
(Apart from my girlfriend, Janet!).”
