Jane Goodall's latest appearance in National Geographic is in the October 2017 issue.
Ms. Goodall was a special guest at the 2012 Tarzana Dum-Dum where she was awarded and gave a talk at the banquet ceremonies.
PreviouslyBill Hillman had led her onto the podium at the large Tarzan Yell event and coaxed her to treat the crowd to an authentic Chimp yell.

Jane Goodall's latest appearance in National Geographic is in the October 2017 issue.
We have fond memories of the Tarzana 2012 Dum-Dum where Ms.Goodall was our special guest speaker.
During the Tarzan Yell contest that I was MCing I had led her to the podium
where she captivated the audience with an authentic Chimpanzee yell.

Expanded Edition of Moom Maid
 This is the edition to have, even with the few textual errors, softcover or hardcover editions.
There are those who feel that THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT is Burroughs' master;piece,
but I agree with those who feel that THE MOON MAID is the masterpiece.
Aside from that, I hope that ERB, Inc. will one day allow UNDER THE RED FLAG to be finally published!

 ERB In Blanding, Utah Dinosaur Museum
"My wife and I were exploring Southern Utah this fall. We were in Blanding Utah and stopped at the dinosaur museum.
The museum was an amazing stop. A great museum in such a small town.
There were fantastic dinosaur displays and dinosaur themed movie posters decorating the walls.
We were pleasantly surprised to see Burroughs material included in the displays."
Here are some pics. Rich Hrapcak
