WELCOME HOME!!! The Pirate is back after a month away and it was so lovely to see him. He was very big and brave, having been in the warmer climes of Cambodia and swimming in heated pools at 38 degrees. He went straight in with no messing, and didn't swear at all, what a pro. I didn't really have time to catch up with all his news as I had to get off to work but he did tell us about spending a memorable Christmas travelling on the back of an oxcart staring at the stars. No doubt there will be more tales to tell, but the weather isn't conducive to hanging about. It's snowing as I type and seems to be settling, so tomorrow will be no easier.

DK and The Pirate
Oddly today is the anniversary of the first micro-photograph of a snow crystal, taken by Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley in 1885.
