  5. 5. I chose to do this posting to pat on the back an eight year old named Art who has a terrific blog. If you like dinosaurs, this is the blog to check out. In today's blog update I have included a few examples of his postings just to wet your appetite. I have also paraphrased some of the information researched and written by Art. Given the quality of the blog produced by someone so young, I think that Art has an extremely bright future. If you want to learn more about Life Before Dinosaurs please check out Art's blog at
