    To build a house in Stilbaai

    Thanks! Yes, we're surrounded by miles of fynbos The nearest town is a few kilometres away. So the house has solar panels and we draw water from a borehole. I'm sure Mary K would've loved the scenery here, and she might've enjoyed seeing her distant cousins, that's a beautiful photo of her!

    To build a house in Stilbaai

The one to the right was larger and "chasing" the other one. It could be that time of year, or he was chasing the other tort out of his territory. When he saw...

    She used it to signal her servants. If someone was talking too long with her or about something she disliked, she would switch it to the opposite hand to get out of a conversation. After the signal was given her servants would fetch her to let her know she should "attend" to something else. I...

    COLD DARK ROOM

    She wasn't the most liked person around the world, but you have to give that she changed the world regardless, and that any death is sad. I hope I don't sound disrespectful, but I can't help but wonder what this means for the monarchy and for a Scotland that wants to leave. So all eyes are now...

    114 days later and still no poop

    After the initial baytril shock he stopped eating, and started to ramp up slowly. He's now eating much more. I way him now and then but not regularly. Before the injection he wayed 144g, now he's on 137g

    114 days later and still no poop

    So my tort's just come out of a long RI, I can now see that it's almost entirely gone. But I've realised that the last time he pooped was 3 March 2022. It's been 114 days since he's last pooped! In 114 days I've tried over a dozen hour long soaks, and on other times half an hour soaks. I've...
