Elephants really are scared of mice. I saw an episode of Mythbusters (and you've got to believe those guys!) that showed it.

One day, when I have more time, I want to read Pliny the Elder for some of this esoteric (and often plain wrong) knowledge.

  1. Jenny, not sure where you are in relation to all the flooding that we're hearing about in the States, but hope you are safe and well. :-)

  2. Hi Liz, I'm safe, well and ironically, dry. I'm over the other side of Australia in the middle of a drought. Thanks for asking. The news coverage of Queensland just shows mind-boggling devastation.
