Aaaand... we're back.  What ho, missed ourselves?  Nice to know the folks in the Engine Room have things back under control now.  Though there is that blue haze of smoke, and a smell of burning something-that-isn't-dodo...

Ah well, all's well that ends.


Cheers!

Somebody burnt a Dodo? What?

The last stuffed dodo used to reside in Oxford Museum of Natural History, where is was seen by a certain chap called Dodson, who used it as a character is some kid's fantasy or other. Said bird was apparently soon burnt as it was getting motheaten. Sic transit gloria mundi.  So says "The Annotated Alice" by Martin Gardner. I wonder how bad they smell. Myself I can never get one to stay alight (puff, puff...).

Graeme: That's not sago pudding, Tim.
Bil: It's dodo do's.
