Grant for Antonio
I understand that the money, gathered from individual members of the
DML, sent to me, sent to the National Foundation to the Geosciences and
then Bank transfered to the Italian Paleontologist, Fabio Marco Dall
Vecchia has arrived in Italy. Thank you so much to all you that
contributed to this fund to study the basal Hadrosaur "Antonio".
I would also like to thank Wally Ulrich, President of the National
Foundation of the Geosciences (NFG), (Non-profit out of Jackson
Wyoming) for facilitating the bank transfer and making it possible for
me to not get hit with US taxes for gathering the money for this fund.
I would highly recommend NFG to anybody needing the services of a
non-profit foundation in their geologic work. The officers of that
foundation cannot come more highly recommended. They are each highly
recognized geologists in their respective fields and have taken the
time to set up the foundation just to facilitate this kind of thing.

Would the gentleman from England who donated 100 British Pounds please
contact me off list at firstname.lastname@example.org to give me his name and
address. I need it to make sure you get a pdf of the paper down the
line. Somehow, I have misplaced your name and address and I also would
like your email. I believe I have everyone else's.
At any rate, it only took three months from the start of the fund drive
to get funds to Italy. There must be a better way.
P.S. Update on the Bliss Ranch dinosaur sites. Hell Creek couldn't be
better this year. A few more microsites have been discovered by the
old walk around and look way lately but hundreds of Cretaceous fossil
mammal teeth, thousands (literally) of other Cretaceous faunas teeth
and bones have come out since I have been sieving harvester ant hills.
I find less obvious microsites more easily now that the ants are doing
the prospecting. As a result, the statistical "N" has grown in size as
a result. I will update my website as soon as a few proxy server
technical issues are resolved with my satellite earthstation internet
