    Dear Aonghus

    Your comments about Bram and his nephew Barm are very funny, but as usual, poorly researched.

    Bram is actually an abbreviation of Bream. Bream Stoker was badly teased as child (obviously), that is why he shortened his name to Bram, and also why he held most women in such poor esteem, except of course the fabulous Madam Mina Harker.

    Mina Harker was modeled on a real life character, Claudette d'Offeece, a very famous circus performer. Her act included taking shorthand at fifty words per minute whilst galloping around the ring bareback on a white stallion, and also typing at forty words per minute whilst being swung round by her hair, fifty feet above the ground. It was during one of these performances that her famous 'traveler' typewriter slipped from the leather strap around her neck, and hit Bram's nephew, Neil on the head. Neil never fully recovered from the injuries he sustained, and that is why he was called Barmy Stoker, eventually shortened to Barm.

    I'm sure Park staff do that on purpose. We had almost the exact same experience with a rhino, we had to reverse through a river crossing. Thank god Mr Caf was driving, I can't reverse or parallel park. When we told the staff they said the same thing, "Oh yes, he always does that." Well, thanks very much for the warning!!

    AF, I am so impressed, you are very observant, I wondered if you would pick up on old Barm!!

    I have also seen elephants in 'the condition' you described, it is uhm... impressive!

    Going to read up all the stuff on the Cloud I've missed. Cafxx
