The Waterhole

A Ringlet butterfly on a flower

Welcome to The Waterhole. This page was designed for the classic, the original, the one and only h2g2 midnight blue background. The Waterhole is my homespace as a researcher for Douglas Adam's brainchild; The Guide to Life, the Universe and Everything, (h2g2 for short). I read here, sometimes talk, write, and keep a note of sites to visit and odds and ends I want to remember.

2No, I don't think it looks like a T-Shirt either but don't go spreading that around.

(Talking of waders - there goes a red shank and two little ringed plovers.)
