Further adventures in Administrivia…

Just a few layout updates; the links for “Third Time Round” (my thoughts at the time on becoming a father for, unsurprisingly, the third time) and “The Snip Story” (guaranteed to make certain men wince and certain women crinkle their noses in disapproval) are gone from the right hand side. Click on them above, and you’ll be taken to their new posting homes. You can even add comments now!

And if you’re just here for the Hippo stuff, another Hippo factoid ripped straight from Wikipedia:

” Donna the Hippo, 56, is the oldest known hippo in captivity. She lives at the Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville, Indiana

To mark territory…

Hippos spin their tails while defecating to distribute their excrement over the greatest possible area.

I’m guessing by this that they’d make lousy house pets.
