The land of cranberries

The island of Terschelling, in the Dutch Waddenzee, is famous for its cranberry delicacies. It did not really occur to me how how famous or how ubiquitous before I realised that the umpteenth meal I was served there contained the ump^2-iest version of cranberries I had been served. They make cranberry jam, cranberry cake, cranberry juice, cranberry liquor, cranberry you-name-it-and-they-got-it!

Where did the shrimp go?

Have you seen this shrimp? Two weeks ago, I added five black crystal shrimp to our department aquarium in addition to the three red crystal shrimp and three larger Malawa shrimp already there. The black striped shrimp soon went into hiding, and became difficult to spot, but as of today I fail to find any of them. Have you seen them? Did they leave a message? Did you or a Chinese girl eat them?

We welcome any hints to solve the mystery of the missing shrimp.
