In the last few days, an animal of some kind has been making its way
across my garden and those of the three houses next to me. It has
tunnelled under the fence leaving a hole that might allow a small
terrier to pass through. It makes small round holes in the lawn. These
are about one inch in diameter and roughly an inch deep. Whether it
does this in a search for food, I can't tell. They don't look like
The animal seems to be nocturnal as the holes appear overnight and we
haven't yet seen the culprit. Does anyone have any idea what this is?
With that in mind, what has Australia done to stop continental drift,
hmmm? With "Global Warming" the Earth's mantel is getting softer and
less viscous, thereby promoting continental drift. You know what I'm
talkin' about. It'd just be typical if Australia floated in some night,
just off Seattle, unloaded it compliment of undocumented wombats and
bunyips, and then cruised back to where it belongs (just to the right of
the Indian Ocean) by morning. (I've heard that there are even pictures
on the internet that shows Australia on hydro-foils.) Then they would
say, "'Ou me?" And then act all innocent like. This is the sort of thing
that keeps our "Fatherland Security" defenders up at night.
Take action, and "STOP CONTINENTAL DRIFT" for garden's sake.
Both the House and Senate budget plan would have cut Social Security and

Helps to know where in the world you are, so that lemurs can also be
ruled out, etc. My guess is that you are in Britain and the cause is
badgers. They are quite flat and will get through a surprisingly low
hole. They will dig for grubs.
