Tiptoeing Through the Tulips

rambling ratz

More of a nimble bimble than a tiptoe in my case, on account of my being a small illustrated rat, but I can promise you of tulip

The unmistakable bold brash tulips add a splash of colour to the garden. The name originates from the Turkish, tülbend which some think is derived from the Persian delband, meaning turban. This could be due to someone’s fevered imagination thinking the flower looked like a turban, or because they saw an Ottoman’s turban fashionably decorated with a tulip; we will never know. The French insisted on calling it tulipe and the lazy English knocked off the extravagant « e ».

Snow Moon

rambling ratz

The February full moon is known as the Snow Moon. This is because February in North America is typically the snowiest month. The Native Americans also called it the Hunger, or Bones Moon as food stocks and hunting opportunities dwindled.Photo of Full Snow Moon

Approximately once every nineteen years the short month of February has no full moon at all, the lunar cycle being 29 days (or nights). Tonight (February 22nd 2016) the moon was shrouded by clouds, but still bright enough to shine hazily through. Here in England though, there is no snow.

Cat Travel: Bag of Nails the reluctant cat pub


Hi everyone,

Towards the end of last year Iain and myself went to Bristol to meet up with a few friends. What we hadn’t realised at the time was that Bristol had it’s own reluctant cat pub! Luckily our friends introduced us to this amazing place.

You are wondering why we are calling it reluctant cat pub? Well that’s because Landlord Luke Daniels didn’t open this as a cat pub due to the cat cafe craze! His idea was to open a pub and giving it a personality and is therefore a reflection of who he is.

As some of you may know I am not just crazy about cats but also about board games so to find a place that combines both…. Heaven! 😀


The resident cats in the pub were taken in by him because he is a fellow cat lover.

Our friend with the resident kitten below. 🙂
