Hi Ori

Is the Negev Desert so dry that it doesn't contain any flowers anymore so instead you presented us with this "flower of another kind" and from another time (chuckle)?

No, I'm just pulling your leg, because I know what wealth of beauty lies locked up in the deserts of the world and over time you have shared so many of those little wonders.

A very interesting piece of fossil you show us here, but I suspect one can only get really excited over something like this when you are a geologist or an archaeologist or someone of similar background. Yet, I can fully appreciate the significance of this find, many kilometres away from any ocean.

Well spotted and captured and TFS.

PS. With appreciation for all the other wonderful postings you shared with us throughout the year and may there still be loads and loads of the same for the coming year.

As the New Year dawns...
may it open up more opportunities for you,
lead you unto the path of continued success,
happiness & good health.

Take time to enjoy God's creation and live life to the full.

A wonderful 2008 for YOU and your loved ones.

Well Ori, it should be amazing to see the fossil of a sea dweller in the midst of a desert, but surely your desert was a sea bottom a few hundred million years ago, no? Your fossil resembles the shell of a "living fossil", Nautilus, a beauty of bio-engineering.

Hi Ori

Waht an amazing find, TFS.
