The thunderbird and the villagers tried to make a way through the corn to find the little cottage, but still, they couldn't find it. Meanwhile, back in the little cottage, which was now far away in the mountains, the witch was heating up the stove. To explain that, the witch had heard what the thunderbird had said and pretended to go to bed. The witch was singing, "Tasty, tasty, tasty fox. As big and strong as an ox. Cook it now and eat it now and you'll be as strong as an ox."
The firefox thought, "The thunderbird hasn't been back for some time. Maybe I should try harder to escape and look for him."
Meanwhile, back to the thunderbird. He was flying westward towards the mountains. He saw a little cottage and flew straight towards it. Out of the window, the firefox saw the thunderbird and called. The witch heard this and immediately locked all the windows and the door. The only problem was that the witch had still left the stove on. Suddenly, a fire appeared from the stove. The ropes quickly caught fire and the firefox ran off.
The witch used her magic to escape the house, but there was another problem for the witch - she had left her broomstick inside.
That is the end of chapter three.

Once upon a time, there was a firefox and a thunderbird. The firefox could launch fire at enemies and the thunderbird could make thunder appear. They were good friends and played a lot together. One day they were feeling adventurous, so they set out to the mountains. On the way, on the path through the corn fields (of giant corn), they came upon a house that they had never seen before. They knocked on the door and a kind old lady came out. She invited them inside and gave them some blueberry pudding with cream. The thunderbird complained about his seat because he was used to a nest. Suddenly, after finishing it, they felt very tired. They lay down to rest in the bed which had been already prepared behind them.
When they woke up, it was night and they knew they could not travel on. Suddenly, a witch appeared! The witch looked like the kind old lady. The thunderbird and the firefox worked it out. The kind old lady was the witch in disguise!
That is the end of chapter one.

On your computer, if you've got this maze screensaver, set it to "All Wood" and if you like, set it to have a map. Then, have a look and see what happens. On mine there is wood everywhere. It looks like you are trapped in every direction. There are obstacles around, of course, and those red arrow things that make you go upside down. They also mark out some places and it's easier to navigate around that way. Of course, you don't control the computer. If you can't find the map, it's "Maze Overlay" in "Settings". I'm using a Windows 98 laptop for this though.
Yep, relaxing in the DK lounge; snuggling the best pig in the whole wide world, Karen.
Now to move on to the screensaver, "3D Text", if you've got it. I like to have it at large, fast, make it wobble about - that's the spin style and entering random text like "jdsaklhftjnvjkdapjuei". On this slow computer with a tiny memory, it goes all slow. Now to make it even more funny. Choose a good texture and then have a look. Mine's even got "N" in hieroglyphs - water.
To explain the guinea pig grass photo, Karen has been in her tray eating loads of grass. When I held her, she was all warm.

Guinea pigs are cute. Well, they are, aren't they? You'll know if you have one. We have four, as I told you in my last blog post. Two of them are relaxing near the heater, Karen and Tamburlaine.
Theodore (the poo poo one) is hiding either in his ice cream tub pigloo on the second floor of his hutch or in the hay on the first floor. If I came near and lifted up the top one and he was in there, he would probably frantically scrabble away.
Justine, on the other hand, is hiding in her pigloo, or the hay under the wood that Mama (tinsenpup) put there.
