On 5th March, Jonathan and Corinna Downes, the Director and Administrator of the Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] the world's largest mystery animal research organisation, fly to Texas. Together with their friends and colleagues Richie and Naomi West who very generously financed the expedition, they will spend two weeks continuing the research into the Texas blue dogs, first carried out by Jonathan Downes in November 2004..

Jon on Texas radio


  1. Jon it's 'z' not zee! You will be pronouncing alliminium wrong next!

  2. When American children learn the alphabet, we learn it in a song. It the last letter were pronounced zed, the song would mess up the rhyme scheme, which is followed by these lines:

    "Now I know my ABC's
    Next time won't you sing with me?"

    If it ended in zed, the song wouldn't flow so nicely.

    But that's a horse of a different color (or is that colour?)
