No, not an ankylosaurus!

I have been attacked by an ankle-osuarus while peeing, while making coffee, while opening the front door, while sitting here at the computer and while walking anywhere in the house.

Clorinha is in a particularly frisky mood this morning.

Must have been the influence of the Battle of the Mouse in the early hours. Then I woke to find her perched up on top of the old TV. No idea how she got there, but signs that she is growing up. Next step will be out the bedroom window to explore the heights of the garage.

I didn’t get round to posting yesterday. Clorinha and I were ‘Belly Up’ (was to be the title of this post, until the ankle-bitter bit) most of the day.

Belly Up!

Belly Up!

No, you don’t get to see my photo, belly up!

At the moment Clorinha is playing fly-Catcher in the Rye Kitchen. She’s not being very successful; pesky flies.

After heavy rain Monday and Tuesday, we were promised lots of rain on Wednesday; we got lots of cloud. We were promised rain again yesterday; we got partial cloud. We were promised rain again today; we have a lovely sunny morning. Honestly, I don’t know who tells bigger lies, weather forecasters or politicians…

It’s Good Friday!

Why is it called ‘good’?

Wasn’t such a hot day for Jesus.

I don’t believe in the resurrection. There’s no proof that it really happened. It was not written about until 200+ years afterward from anecdotes; and that reminds me of the game Chinese Whispers; how stories change in the retelling. But, but… the Turin Shroud… the fabric has been dated about 16th century, although Christians won’t adhere to that.

easter-fertilityEaster is all about MONEY!

Nothing more, nothing less.

For me it is less, because I lose so many classes.

But I am not so churlish.

Happy Easter!

For those believers.

And, remember, your kids are eating pagan fertility symbols.




Sunday Travel Tales

Sucre, Bolivia

Sucre, the constitutional capital of Bolivia

Fooled? I bet you thought it was La Paz.

One of its most famous attractions…. A cement quarry.

Why a cement quarry?

During the excavation of raw materials for making cement, they discovered a hillside that 70 million years ago was the floor of a swamp. The fossilised footprints of dinosaurs left in the mud became the hillside through geological action. It’s just a few kilometres from the city toward the airport.

Sucre has since capitalised on its fame.

Parque Cretacico

5000 footprints, belonging to at least eight different species of dinosaurs.  It is one of the most important dinosaur footprint sites in the world. The park is like a theme park, not much info, but realistic BIG dinosaurs.


One of only two places in the world where Ankylosaurus footprints have been found

So you want to see Jurassic Park…
