Never, ever stop being silly….

December 20, 2010

I’ve been having a lot of fun lately, despite having to excavate myself from Scottish snowdrifts every time I leave the house (I exaggerate, but not that much!).

The project? Getting connected. So now I am Twittering away merrily – encountering my  existing Net friends in a new way. Jude Cowell, that redoubtable blogger from Georgia, USA, is a well-known Web presence, with no less than eight blogs the last time I looked, the best known probably being ‘Stars Over Washington‘.

But today, on Twitter, I found a ninth! Here is a snatch of verse from the brilliant Woolly Mammoth Chronicles:

Woolly Mammoth

Woolly Mammoth


Old woolly mammoth had great size
though now he’s rather thin
some fossils and a hank of hair
are all that’s left of him.

i do not want a woolly mammoth
would not want to be one
if Science brings the creature back
excuse me while i flee one.

….and so on. This is such a quirky, funny and informative new site – check out some brilliant science links as well as an intro to Jude’s other blogs.

  1. Thanks, Anne, it is quite difficult to ‘hide’ woolly mammoth doings and now you’ve found me out! Creating yet another blog finally proves i’ve gone round the bend, doesn’t it? ;p

    Hope your overly snowy season 2010 brings Merry Holidays and a Happy New Year to you & yours! Jude

  2. Well, wouldn’t really like to comment on which bend you are round – probably right next door to mine!

    And seasonal greetings also to you and yours!
