FW: Dinosaur Calendar Project

I was about to delete this article of yours (sorry!!) until I reread your 
concept of creating something on a specific species of dinosaur for each
calendar day. I think you've got quite a neat idea here. May I make a
suggestion here ...... Take each month and devote it to a particular dino
group (ex: ceratopsians). For each day a reconstructed skull AND a life
reconstruction of the head one over top the other. Devote December to photo
portraits of palaeontologists. Put Darwin's photo on 25th Dec. (Darwin Day).
O.K. .... it was just a suggestion. --dale

> I hope that this would give everyone on list a chance to contribute.
> It would be fun to see what comes of this. Any technical advice also
