    But first ... a little catching up in the blog world. In September, 2011, my childrens' book, "How the Dinosaur Got to the Museum" was published by Blue Apple Books. It's all about the provenance of a certain Diplodicus longus at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. To research this book, I traveled to an actual dig site in Shell, Wyoming. We searched for bones! If you find a fragment and are puzzled whether it is a bone or just a stone: place it on your tongue. Bone fragments are VERY porous and they will stick to your tongue.

    I found one!
