I’m up trying to get some writing in the new book, leaning toward what we have been told within the Bible. Right now I’m writing about Noah because everyone has the idea that a pr. of all living animals were loaded into the ark he built. When you stop to consider that a pair of each animal was loaded aboard, you would be wrong. We in essence picture the ark as large, but how large?
