Venusian Megafauna Domesticated!

Remember, good readers, that you heard the news here first.

It appears that at least one of the giant herbivorous dinosaurs of Venus has been tamed and put to serving Her Majesty. My scientific assistant tells me that the beast in question is undoubtedly one of the great saurupods, probably brachiosaurus, but perhaps apatosaurus. Difficult to distinguish from the photostat.

From that high perch on the howdah, Her Majesty's troops can safely move through the teeming jungles of Venus without worry. I am hoping that the man who trained this remarkable beast shall be prompted to train additional dinos for purchase at auction.

I apologize for the paucity of posts again this month. This time illness, and not crushing workloads has been the main malefactor. I've been flat on my back for the best part of two weeks now. But I am improved, and hope to post more in July. Watch for a new monthly poll very soon.

First post of June


News as it happens.

Received today a shipment from a popular auction house. In the package were five pieces of absolutely stunning model terrain. The craftsman responsible advertises his auctions frequently on TMP, and goes by the name of Battlefield Architect there. His alias in the auction house (e-something-or-other) is, if I recall correctly, enjar.

I purchased the items as a bit of a test, as I have seen his work previously on numerous occassions. It is very nice stuff, looks marvelous and seems sturdy. There will be additional orders in the future, as finances permit.

In other news, I am off work for the summer, so hope to accomplish many things in the next two months. Perhaps even make a dent in the backlog of projects. Many things half-purchased. Perhaps a poll of opinions - a short poll, as I don't wish to wait for the end of the month to have my data!
