Dreadful weather today. Think it's time to start on the second lot of episode 2 images.

Hope it clears up later!

It's been like it on and off since October.

Working on a new site. It's a Tolkien site which will be the home of my fan fiction, etc... I will be moving all of my sites to neocities (at least the ones I feel like keeping.) May eventually become a supporter of Neocities because I think the web needs a hosting company like this. People need a place where they can learn to code and not just rely on premades like you have with Wix, etc, but don't want to mess

I am looking for Animals of Farthing Wood, Watership Down fan sites and forums to link to. Will also accept sites to similiar books, films and series. Animal and Wildlife subjects only please.

This website sadly only exists now as on the wayback archive, but your site reminds me so much of We All Live in A Pokemon Wor

*World... it was started by an educator who is very invested in wildlife and environmental conversation after being impressed b the anime's themes, while researching why it was banned from schools, it branched out from just defense and

listed specific episodes for their messages with brief summaries as proof, very well-thought-out.

The first part of the images from episode 2 of AOFW have been uploaded. It does take some time to prepare these, so I'm going to take a break before going on to part 2.

I didn't really get around to doing the stuff I wanted to do for this site today, which is the problem with arthritic pain. The cold temperature and damp doesn't help matters, either.

I'm quite tired today after going into town - the arthritis is acting up as it usually does when I've been out. So, tomorrow might be a good day to watch some episodes of AOFW and write some episode synopis's, even though there are other things I need to do.

I'm sorry, friend!! I've got post-injury arthritis... strength/weight-bearing exercises helped a lot to make it easier, but yeah, long days are rough!!

bright-eyes 4 years ago

Yep. I can usually avoid the problem with my left knee by avoiding things like stairs which trigger it, but cold temperatures and damp cause problems with it even then. It's my hip, back and ankles which are my problem at the moment - I'm fine when I'm out and don't always notice it but when I've rested they become stiff and painful.

Can you wear legwarmers/long underwear underneath your clothes? Layering helps a LOT with the cold issue!!

Your about is so interesting!! I love stories about animals and humans (have you seen the French animated film Zarafah? It’s a pretty magical tale of a young boy’s friendship with a giraffe, while also touching on subjects like slavery, poaching, etc.). This is also why I was so drawn to the Pokemon anime (despite the “cockfighting” poor taste jokes folks make about it, they’re more like trainers and athletes...).

I didn’t grow up with Watership Down, but I’be definitely been curious about it!! It’s nice to hear/read more nuanced things about it than just “gory shock film for kids” takes.

I've never heard of Zarafa. From the Wikipedia page it was made after I stopped watching animated films and moved on to science fiction and fantasy instead, so no. Watership Down has also been made into a cartoon series that lasted three seasons in the late 90's/early 2000's. I didn't watch it then because I had moved on to other things, and it was also made into a cgi series by the BBC that was aired in December,

2018 and shown on Netflix. (It hasn't been released on DVD yet and I've no idea if it will, but I keep checking.) I don't think that most of the people who say the film is gory have bothered reading the book, and neither are really for children even if it is marketed to people that way. Richard Adams also wrote a book with a series of short stories in it set after Watership Down and a I also have a non-fiction nature
