Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Close London Zoo

You may remember how London Zoo's incompetence and negligence caused the death of their first gorilla baby in over 20 years. I could make no headway because David Field, the animal manager responsible for putting the baby in with an unrelated male, was married to Lesley Dickie, the person from the endangered species programme who should have dealt with it.

Field was later promoted rather than sacked.

Now the useless bastards have done it again. The new-born Sumatran tiger cub has drowned.

The tiger enclosure has two halves, one with pool, one without. Any sensible person would have made sure Melati and her cub had access only to the dry enclosure. But no. These idiots who would apparently let their own small children loose near water have sacrificed this wonderful little baby to their own ignorance and negligence.

In a few months my membership will be up, and I cannot imagine they can do anything to persuade me or the other disgusted members to renew.

Close now, ZSL, you are just a bunch of amateurs who should never be let loose on vulnerable endangered species. As for the Sumatran tiger stud book,it's just a travesty to let you keep it.

Fingers Crossed

Because I have to have a one-and-a-half centimetre raise put into my left shoe to even up my odd-length legs, I am limited as to what shoes I can buy. I only get two pairs a year adapted by the hospital's contractors, so I have to be careful about comfort. They slice off the bottom of the sole, whack in the raise, then glue back the sole, so that the tread is the same on both shoes. It's a long time since I had any heels (apart from some ankle boots a couple of years ago that can't be adapted, so rarely get worn) so I was quite excited to find some wedges that incorporate apparent comfort and adaptability. I'm also keen on Velcro fastenings because they make it easier on my creaky joints.

Wins all round. If they really are comfortable...

The Gift

This was the first time I'd come across Bobby Canavale. Don't like him one bit. This Bobby, however, I'll take any time, anywhere.
