Happy Birthday Jonathan Downes!
Today is the birthday of the man responsible for founding the Centre for Fortean Zoology, Jonathan Downes. A larger-than-life character in every way, Jon - who likes to describe himself as an ageing hippy with a penchant for the unusual - has just finished staging the 11th Weird Weekend (and doing a whole bunch of other things - the man never sleeps!).
Of course because of time differences we've started partying earlier in JD's honour - in antipodean parlance, 'we're going for broke with the grog, cobber!'
Happy birthday Jon! x
