Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence.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.

When will it stop raining?

Global warming means slightly warmer rain on this side of the Pennines.

The outcome of this is that bit by bit our garden is being brought in to the house on the bottom of four paws.

How difficult can a blog be?

I wanted to create a blog for Louis (in the full knowledge that probably I’m the only one going to be reading the thing anyway). I didn’t want to use anything that wasn’t on my server and did some investigating.

Choices were limited as I found out my cheap hosting package doesn’t support MySql which most of the biggie applications needed.

I eventually found Greymatter, a nice piece of software. It wasn’t easy for a novice like me to get to grips with (my fault, not Greymatter’s) and I still haven’t integrated it as well as I would like into Louis’ webpage but it seems to work well.
