Walking through the park this afternoon, I saw this little fella. And about ten of his pals. And about three of their girlfriends, who were looking a little harassed, poor souls. What I don’t know is:

  1. How they were finding their way over a large hill and down to the lake, &
  2. How amphibians cope with nearly-frozen water. Fish I understand – only the top surface is frozen, and that insulates the deeper water – but air-breathers? Won’t they freeze?


  1. just wondering whether this works, as mine seems to be down at the moment, no worries

  2. me again, any reason this comes up when you try to leave a comment on the diaries?
    Your comment was denied for questionable content.
    don’t get me wrong, it’s not as if I get a lot of real comments, and I am enjoying not having to slice the spam everyday, but well, you know, I don’t want to miss Mr Serota when he offers me a show in Tate Modern [basement toilets]

  3. Fixed. You had a rule in your Blacklist that barred all comments which included ‘http:’… so if you listed your own website in the little comment box, it got kicked back at you. Sorry it took a while for me to respond – I was on the road.

  4. thanks for the fix – hope all’s well
