Many of my friends refuse to believe that The Husband and I LIKE being childfree and have absolutely no desire to change that status, ever. I was recently sent a link to this article. Well, I see you that article and raise you this one. I have a pain from laughing so much.

Q: What is the best cure for a 24 hour bush-bug which includes vomiting & diarrhoea?

A: Ampersands, or, a supper of gin&tonic and M&Ms.

On a work note I have nothing but good things to say about our local government District Health people. Not only have they kept their word and continue to supply more than enough fuel to run the ambulance we donated to the clinic, started HIV testing, counselling and ARV facilities, they are now coming up trumps with disposable supplies for malaria testing once we supply a microscope. It just shows that governments are more than willing to invest in basic needs once they have the opportunity. I just hope debt relief begins to loosen the coffers at the District Education Board, even getting a reply from them is like getting blood out of a turnip.

Oh Yes, It Was Lovely...

"Oy! Can't a giraffe get some lunch in peace? Bloody tourists!"

"Ok, that's it, I'm coming for that camera."

Some very lazy buffalo, as seen from horseback

See it and weep! That thar is the POOL at the lodge we stayed at in South Luangwa National Park. Look, look at all that water! Bliss. Especially with a constant parade of lion, hippo, elephant, antelope etc trooping past on that dusty bit in the background.

Elvis Has Left The Building

Worn out. Go holiday. Back end month. With stories. Oh yes, there will be stories.
