October already! Christmas is round the corner. Hard to believe here that a few months ago we were in the middle of a heat-wave. It really was hot, seriously hot.

The Monkey (Ceboidea - New World or Cercopithecoidea - Old World) has long been used on boxes and cards. Main reason I think would be because they are associated with fun and mischief. "Is he up to monkey business?" is how a policeman might describe a known criminal. And Blackadder might say "He is...
I have a passion for Fairy Stories and how they originated. If you asked people in the street where Fairy Stories priginated, they will probably give you one of three answers: Answer One: Hans Christian Andersen Answer Two; The Brothers Grimm Answer Three: I don't know Fairy Sories have crossed...
