Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

Snakes and Alligators

I’m over in Houston at the moment; spending a few days holiday with Pete after a convention in San Antonio.

Nobody seems to walk in Texas but we had to the other day to go collect Pete’s car after leaving it outside a bar after a few too many sherbets.

It was my idea to walk but it was a tough one with the heat and humidity.

This brightened my journey up though; you don’t see signs like this in the UK:-

Local Wildlife

Suzy texted me today to tell me to go looking in storm drains for some wildlife to take a photo for the blog (we holidayed here around 2000 and we saw what looked like Terrapins in some storm drainage). Based on the signs I’ve seen I’ll give it a miss.

The Pain Of Blogging

I’ll keep this short and sweet. I’m away at the moment in the US. Just before I left I noticed a WordPress plugin I use to send me a backup of the blog was sending a zero byte size file. I contacted my host with the issue. Upon my arrival in Houston I checked my emails and saw a correctly sized backup file. Great I thought. However the site was no longer available. I couldn’t even log in.

There followed a tonne of emails between me and mein host and this, coupled with the time difference plus this four letter word “work” getting in the way, has meant that the site has been buggered up for the best part of a week.

It seems to be my theme that is partly to blame although it was working before I raised the query. Anyway – as you will see it’s back up and running albeit there’s a few things missing.

I’ve a few more days left here before returning home to see what jobs Suzy and Louis have prepared for me.
