Norfolk... is a long way away from anywhere, and if I were you, I shouldn't start from here. By the time you get to the outskirts of Cromer, any distinctions between science, beachcombing, social commentary, writing and animal husbandry have started to blur. When the process is complete, you know you've arrived at the End Of The Pier Show. So, welcome. Find somewhere to park your unicycle. Pull up a
girrafechair. Make yourself comfortable.

This lunchtime, my coauthor Crox Minima and I took Canis Croxorum and the sledge through the woods and on to the clifftops, near the lighthouse Canis Croxorum had a great time playing snow-angels While Crox Minima attempted the notorious black … Continue reading
For reasons that (which?) now escape me, I’ve rediscovered ‘Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3′, a hit in 1979 for Ian Dury and the Blockheads. Maybe it was the chant underlying the funk workout that did it, the one that … Continue reading
As regular readers (both of them) will have noticed, I’ve been elsewhere lately. Among other things I’ve been finishing a story for children entitled Defiant the Guinea-Pig: Firefighter! with my younger daughter, Crox Minima, aged 10 (though with vital contributions … Continue reading
Hardly has Jennifer Rohn stopped chewing the carpet following her editorial travails on OpenLab08, than submissions are being solicited for OpenLab09. This year’s guest editor is SciCurious, who’d like us to believe she looks like Remy the Rat from Ratatouille. … Continue reading
