RESURRECTION?
One of my images from London back in 1988 of the Shropshire Mammoth reconstruction that we created in my London studio. By running it through Photoshop and Illustrator I have once again resurrected the Shropshire Mammoth in its environment. This is a plausible scene around 4,000 years ago in Shropshire England, now the West Midlands.

Remember we all have an expiration date, so ...contact someone that you haven't heard from in ages....surprise them!

TAKING BACK THE WHITE HOUSE:
CNN FAKE NEWS: January 20 2020

Carpet bombing by two aging B17 bombers began early this morning at 9:33 am (EST). unloading 40 tons of live Great White sharks upon the White House and the Capital in Washington DC in an attempt to clean up the political farce since Trump took office back in Jan 20 2017. Cheers from millions of demonstrators and the DTFABA (Dump Trump for a better America) watched as Republican Party members ran for their lives. All
soon joined the elated but shocked wave of people who had come hours earlier to protest against the recent marriage of Donald Trump to Mr.Putin that took place on the White House lawn last week.
No political organization has stepped forward to claim responsibility for today’s unfortunate event however, there has been some speculation that a secret sect of intelligent sharks purchased the WW2 bombers and planned this attack as retribution for Trumps campaign of Nationalism/fascism giving these Great Whites a bad name.

CALAMARI STEAKS TO DIE FOR:
This is Chef Roberto here on the tiny island of Isola Negra in the Artichoke Archipelago.
Here I am posing with my dinner for this evenings meal. Enough to feed the entire population of 134 islanders it took only five of us to claim this bounty from the deep dark waters 30 miles eastward. Baited with a sack of fresh grey mullet heads we spent two hours reeling this monster in.
Charred Squid Steaks & Champagne. Place a cast iron skillet on a stove burner over high heat.
Open Champagne, drink and follow instructions. Sprinkle the seasoning over the steaks, coating both sides. Preheat skillet, place a steak on it carefully. Sear one side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until it has a blackened crust. Then, flip to the other side and sear for another 2 minutes until a crust forms. Turn down the heat to low and finish cooking to your desired doneness, if necessary. Thin steaks may already be cooked through at this point, so watch it carefully.
Open another bottle of Champagne.

GOOD NIGHT....for some!
Dinosaurs ( like birds & reptiles ) have a ring of small bones that helped support the pupil and iris of the eye. The structure is technically known as a scleral ring and acts not only as a proxy for eye size. A wider hole in the middle of the ring would indicate an ability to take in more light, and thus would be consistent with nocturnal habits, while a relatively smaller window would be more consistent with daytime behavior. Applied to dinosaurs, the study seemed to show that many predators hunted at night while large herbivores were most active during the mornings and evenings.

BLOOD SPORTS:
Take Action now while your children still have a chance to learn the truth about Blood Sports and Trophy Hunting, these are all crimes against Animals and should be punished as such.
Teaching future generations to have no empathy or compassion for other living beings is only slowing down the development of our species.

I SAY! CRICKET ANYONE?
Mmmm.... giant cricket for dinner again ? Packed with nutrician and difficult to catch one can only imagine how far and high these creatures could have jumped. These super insects existed 300 million years ago in the Carboniferous and early Permian periods. This was created over a weekend for Disney along with five other insects.

TRAINING ALLOSAURUS:
Not as easy as it looks actually as every time I got her to sit, down while reaching for my camera she would roll over or run off. Not very obedient! Finally I got one shot of her although
not really sure if I was reading her expression correctly.
