Great Piffka,
But, I am reminded of a scene from Jurassic Park - the movie - the actor said, "At first it's all fun, then comes the running and screaming." - grin
Watch out for mud slides.

Isn't that the best news re the planets? I hope evidence of life on one of the planets is confirmed before I pass on.

Hi Stradee and all,

Hi, everyone...

Cool article, ehBeth. I've been following that on the news and at the space related website - very exciting news, indeed!

Speaking of JUrassic Park...Have you seen this? (photos at top of page might be a little gross for some people, but they're not bad)

Scientists recover T. rex soft tissue
70-million-year-old fossil yields preserved blood vessels

Updated: 11:25 a.m. ET March 25, 2005

WASHINGTON - A 70-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex fossil dug out of a hunk of sandstone has yielded soft tissue, including blood vessels and perhaps even whole cells, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- For more than a century, the study of dinosaurs has been limited to fossilized bones. Now, researchers have recovered 70-million-year-old soft tissue, including what may be blood vessels and cells, from a Tyrannosaurus rex.

If scientists can isolate proteins from the material, they may be able to learn new details of how dinosaurs lived, said lead researcher Mary Higby Schweitzer of North Carolina State University...

Hi, Piffka...
As long as we don't have anymore wind with it, I'm all for the rain. We need it SO bad up here - and last year so many of the evergreen trees in the P.N.W. became diseased/died because of the lack of rain makes them susceptible to whatever it was that they caught. I like the sun better too, but we REALLY need the rain or we're gonna be in worse trouble than we are already. (Of course, it would have been nicer if the rain had held off until after the holiday weekend so that it wouldn't spoil plans for so many.)

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it, and Happy Weekend to all who don't.

Teeny, there are some good artists at the site, and I thought the painting was absolutely georgous.

Another good site is called Cal's Gallery.
A great place for viewing wildlife and wildplaces paintings and photos. My favorite are the wolf galleries. The background music and pics amazing.


Thanks for the stats, ehBeth.

Have a good day Dannon and all ~
