Happy New Year!

And all the best.
What depends me, it will not become the same procedure as every year.
Looking forward to that.
This morning I read that Apes and monkeys die as fire rips through German zoo; afterwards I read that millions of primates enjoyed watching fireworks in Berlin, London, Paris and – of course! – in Sydney. Tough primates there. Real heroes.
By the way, while I am writing this the net primate-population growth today – January 1st, 2020 – has reached 212,000.
All primates, considering themselves homo sapiens sapiens.
Ha ha ha.


  1. I was so sad to hear about tragic deaths of the monkeys. We had a sad incident in one of our zoos in 2018 caused by an electrical fault in the monkey enclosure. Thankfully most of the monkeys were saved, although probably traumatized by the event. Nothing was ever mentioned about the other animals housed in that enclosure.

    Fireworks have always had a specific meaning for me. Before the millennium they were only allowed to be sold a few weeks before Bonfire Night (November 5th) to mark a historical political event.

    The millennium celebrations led to an unpleasant Genie being let out of the box. Fireworks being let off all year round for various celebration.

    1. I do understand why the fifth of November has a specific meaning for you, but I do think it is utterly st...range to celebrate an event from 415 years ago with fireworks and by burning bonfires. Maybe my closest relatives are not chimpanzees, but bonobos.
      Fireworks prove evidence of the stagnation of homo sapiens sapiens' evolution.

  2. Well here we go round the mulberry bush again, or something...

  3. And may the mulberry bushes not burn.
    Happy New Year, wearer of the Golden Helmet of Perthino. There are quite a few quests waiting for Don QuiScottie and Seanso Panza.
