Christmas Greetings to all visitors and readers. I hope you have an enjoyable and healthy festive season and I wish you health, and fulfilment for 2009 and, most of all, happy and healthy animals!

Towards the end of this year, we have run into bandwidth problems, meaning that the blog has 'gone down' for the last few days of each month, owing to a high visitor rate. While I apologise to any who encountered a blank page at any time, I am heartened that we have significant visitor traffic. I have now upgraded the bandwidth to cope with the increased demand and I hope you will not 'draw a blank' again.
