    The keen-eyed among you may spot a printout of the Tales cover behind me....
    There's a lot to unpack there. Looks like fun.

    On a sideways note it reminded me of an exchange I have with my friend Jennie. She is an elderly Italian lady who spends her mornin's at the high street cafe. In the Spring sunshine. Her English is OK. Better than my Italian which stretches to "Bongiorno Jennie. Prima Vera!"

    Only to discover I was pronouncin' it like the famous lady detective from Newcastle. Rather than the softer "e" it should be. Not so cosmopolitan as I thought.

    Made me smile.

    I've just completed my six-month probation period for my job. All good. Fully onboard now and in a great team. Very satisfying feeling for an old man.

    Another animal that has been hidin' for 60 years in plain sight. A bear. On the toblerone pack. Amazin', innit? Seems it's made in Bern Switzerland where the city's coat of arms is a bear. Never knew that.

    Remember I did post a photograph last year, of an echidna's "duck's nuts" but with this new editorial zero-tolerance for zoological study...see my recently deleted thread on the Found Whale Dong...I shan't bother.

    Tis a pity. Believe Sir David Attenbourough would feel the same.

    Gotta say. Another thing it's taken 60 years to discover. A baby echidna. Never seen one before. Must be nice to rub, use on your back durin' a shower. Like a lupher. This fella was saved from some recent floodin'. Born out of an egg, like a platypus, then suckled by it's mum through patches on her skin that secrete milk. Oh. If it's a boy. Has 4 heads on it's penis.

    Made me smile.


    OK. Just googled. Babies are called "puggles".
    My heart, I can't take it 😁
    Some amazing creatures! You just have to wonder sometimes. Reminded me of a platypus instantly.

    I’m just hoping Godzilla is available just in case a monster one of these comes out of the ocean.

    And don’t try and get me to look, Gilly, I have zero interest in looking at any animal genitalia ( though how could I not miss the monster-size balls on a couple of the pigs at the farm the other day ). I rarely know if it’s a male or female dog. Why would I look?

    Seeing Nate Florence surf the wave of his life, in Ireland ! The guy has surfed all over the world, lives on the North Shore of Hawaii and yet found the magic wave in the most unusual place ! There is no way he should have pulled off the ride at the end, incredible....

    A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH


    or a matter of Death and Life. By Klimt. In Vienna.

    The paintin' called Death and Life by Klimt got Kalumped!!!

    What made me really smile in the video online was the old security guard holdin' one of the rapscallions is just some poor old grandpa earnin' a few euros extra to help his grandchildren and the single mother. Vienna is an expensive city to live in. All those pastries. 😉

    Shame to see a guy pushed to the margins, with wanin' stature and influence rage against the dyin' of the light. Same goes for Ronaldo 😉

    We got our first snow of the season here yesterday and it was exceptionally beautiful somewhere in the 2-3 inch range no wind to speak of so it coated the trees and grass very nicely. Two days prior to that we were in the 70s wearing shorts!
