Egyptian (Virtual) Holiday

Admin1 has been playing Assassin’s Creed Origins, a vast open-world game set in Egypt, circa 57BC. Some effort has gone into making it accurate, with consultant historians and linguists, and it’s undeniably impressive.
Here’s an eagle’s-eye view of Alexandria at sunset, taking in the Hippodrome, the museum, the famous library, the theatre, docks and ending up at the Ancient Wonder Pharos lighthouse, rediscovered in 1968.

There are also pyramids and the Sphinx…

RIP Titan


We called him Titan because we thought he was going to be big but he was tiny and died of gut trouble before he was two years old. We will miss his calm nature, friendliness and lovely soft fur xxx

Cats’ Cradle


Meet Titan (big and bright orange) and Ganymede (pale and pretty). Titan was originally the forthcoming cat but he turned very shy while Ganymede came out of his shell and amused everybody with his entertaining acrobatics. Now they are both out and proud.
