New Year Resolutions

Get more exercise. Lose weight. That's what the vet told the Tabby yesterday. So he is now on the 'Catkins diet' (high protein, low carb.)

"You do know that Atkins died young, don't you?" says Schroedinger to the vet. But the vet lectured us about the danger of diabetes and so we agreed to try the neutered male, stay-at-home variety of the expensive cat biscuit.

Meanwhile the Tabby was exploring the consult room, found a box of doggy treats, fished one out and ate it.

Of course he has put on weight over the holiday period. He ate the Xmas tree.

The Year of the Dragon

Happy Chinese New Year!

Yes, I am still here, I just worked through Christmas and then took a trip and then came home and I'm still working.

But it's all good. What a year the Dragon has for me. Hang on tight, we're taking off!!

Peace and Lovejoy

Happy New Year!

2011 finished for me with a delightful flourish - the unexpected survival of Comet Lovejoy after passing through its proximity to the sun. In our Southern Christmas skies those who rose early for those few festive days were treated to a gorgeous yuletide display of the fading comet with an incredibly long tail flaring high above the horizon. Glorious.

Here's to more unexpected survivals for 2012. Hope you have a good one.
