    An update on Otto the seagull

    It doesn’t seem that long ago since I took in a baby seagull and started to feed it every day. Three times a day. And mop the basement floor twice daily. Taking in the baby bird, which my wife named Otto, required a good amount of dedication to ensure the basement didn’t smell like a…

    When I was younger I remember an old friend of my dad’s came to the house. It was back when you accessed the internet via a dial-up connection and spending time on the internet meant that you couldn’t make phone calls. The man in question was holding a pink pig. Not a real one. A…

    People like pictures, right? I’m going to try and make future links posts a bit more colourful than previous ones by throwing some pictures in there – maybe some alternative styling along the way. The meat of the post will still be links, but the pretty pictures will make it more digestible. Speaking of digestible…
