notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Brilliant Post Below

Imagine my excitement when I clicked on the news link labeled "Monster Fossil Found in Jurassic Graveyard". This would be something to make the T-Rex look like a gecko and would use the Loch Ness Monster as a tooth pick.

I was greeted by a short necked Nessie.

They have a complete skeleton of a pliosaur that is around 10 metres in length. Pretty good, but not what I'd call a monster. Though maybe I was dazzled by the technical jargon of one of the egg heads who was part of the team that made the "monster" find.

"One of them was this gigantic monster, with vertebrae the size of dinner
plates, and teeth the size of cucumbers".

Woah, put it in terms we can understand Professor, we're simple folk.

Now THIS is what I call a scary monster...

The assistant professor whose description is quoted above also provided this full scale diagram of the "monster".
