I can’t be trusted with this stuff, so cack-handed am I. But that didn’t stop me helping out re:form with an art project she is doing for a local wildlife centre. It’s a British birds installation and she’s done a great job. She was perching them on a branch from the Scientific Wire Centre… and I was hanging them from fishing wire.

When we had both accidentally superglued a bird each to our fingers, simultaneously, I didn’t feel quite so much of a klutz. Having said that, after we had finally freed the birds (nail polish remover) I promptly glued two more fingers to a blue tit.

Time for bed said Zebedee.


Dog Days

From Wikipedia

“Dog Days” (Latin: diēs caniculārēs) are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the northern hemisphere, they usually fall between early July and early September. In the southern hemisphere they are usually between January and early March. The actual dates vary greatly from region to region, depending on latitude and climate.

Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, in close proximity to the sun was responsible for the hot weather.
