A short-tailed Albatross
There were once two princesses, whose Papa had been turned into a penguin by the local witch. This was inconvenient because he loved to hold his princesses in his arms and you can’t do that if you’re a penguin, you have wings like herrings.(Herrings don’t have wings.)His wings were the shape of herrings. To make matters worse she sent him to the South Pole which is an awfully long walk if you...

For my 1,000th post, I wanted to talk about my 2010. It was a year of change for me, as I’m sure it was for most of you.
