MS*** I knew you had it in you. Yeah, when those guys post, I break
out the protective goggles. . . spent 15 minutes one day scraping off
spittle from INSIDE the glass of my monitor screen :o).

MS*** Oh, you must be referring to the time you went to the store to copy
that "dinosaur" related material, right? ( remember, the all seeing eye of
one called Kirkaldy monitors our every comment, scanning for inclusion of
keywords like di-no-saur. . .fos-sil . . . and bone. . .)

MS*** I'm sure there are those who could come up with very interesting
and development of ideas, I was more concerned that the mechanics of filming
movie, etc... still are best left to those in the movie industry, which is
beyond the scope of the paleo crowd. . . and you know what'll happen if Don
directs it and you get involved in casting. You'll be much too distracted
together a bevy of nubile young nymphets required as an "enhancement" to the
reptilian component, to be able to remain focused on the construction and
of the movie's lead protagonist, Tyrannospinoceratops bogartii!!

MS*** and there's the magic. As long as you can capture the attention of a
set of innocent ears, there remains still, a shred of hope for all
(drop in heart warming music, melodic yet not overly sentimental). . .
