Well, I'm very pleased to announce this morning that big and exciting things are afoot within the world of the Center for Fortean Zoology.

In just a few, short weeks from now, a team from the CFZ, led by in-house zoologist Richard Freeman, will be heading off to the Karbadino Balkaria region of Southern Russia, in search of the nation's very own version of the Yeti: the fabled Almasty.

An announcement was made this morning on the BBC's prestigious Radio 4 "Today" show about the expedition. And I can also tell you that big names are involved, and there will be major TV coverage of the expedition, too.

I will have much more to say on Monday when a fuller, broader announcement will be made about this ground-breaking venture.

But suffice it to say for now, this will be a major project for the CFZ, and one that I will be reporting on - right here - on a daily basis when the CFZ's quest for the Almasty begins.

Great! I enjoyed following the Guyana expedition (strangely, I'm heading down there myself in July). Tell the guys good luck for me on this one!

Will do, thanks, I'll tell 'em!
