This week features a fascinating exhibit at the Burpee Museum of Natural History:

Jane @ Burpee Museum of Natural History
Jane is one of the most spectacular dinosaur finds in recent years. She is one of the best preserved and most complete juvenile T. rex specimens in the world, discovered in 2001 by a Burpee Museum expedition to the Hell Creek Formation in southeastern Montana -- and finally on display as of July 29, 2005.

Each week, I'll answer your questions, post announcements and provide interesting input!  Email me at
That's all for this week! "Remember...the Web is a terrible thing to waste!"
