This was taken while at the British Museum in London. It seems like they revered the cat even more than some readers.

It appears that they preserved fish,rats and Hamsters, so that took care of the youngsters also.



However if you slept on the job in the Pyramids you could be found like this in 4000 years time.


I found this while staying on a farm in Vrede, its many millions of years old and was originally a Carboniferous Tree. I ground a piece off the end with a soft green wheel, so that the rings can be seen. I tried drilling it with a masonry drill but the drill just burned out after a millimeter.


This Southern Right Whale got very nosy when did my last whale watching trip.

Where I am staying now the Pine Rings are still growing, there must be a mini climate here.

As I mentioned in my earlier blog about the piggy-back Pine Ring, below is one of the twin ones. Also I found a patch of large ones that were 190 mm in diameter, I cooked one latter and it was very tasty.

This is how I cooked them, using a little butter on top and putting them under the grill. After 5 minutes I layered some Chedder cheese over them using a potato peeler to make the cheese pliable. After covering them I put them back under the grill until brown. This time I didn`t even have bread with them.

The next morning I set out and collected some more. These I cut into quarters and cooked in butter using a frying pan. When the mushrooms were cooked I poured in the egg. Before doing so I mixed it with a bit of salt and pepper and a little milk. This I put on top of a couple of slices of buttered toast. It was a real camping breakfast and reminded me of the past. When I lived near Tokia Forrest the season used to be finished by the end of May most years. Maybe there is a mimi- climate in the bush where I go mushroom hunting, because there are about half a dozen edible mushrooms there and they are still growing.


Bake until brown.


Sometimes I just make an omelet by cutting the Pine Rings in quarters.
