Re: Why do I enjoy?

From:Colin Powell <>

 Dear Terry and other colleagues!

I'm a fanatic of histotechnology, even though I live
in a most desperate conditions now compatible to most of all correspondents of Histonet. My wife, who is a Director of Pathology at Severomorsk Regional Hospital, and I could make no more than 700$ per 1 year! That is my answer to the underestimated, unrecognised and underpayed UK biomedical  scientists.
Most of our co-workers enforsed to lend thir appartments to the traveling traiders, while they are living with their relatives and friends in order to improve somehow their income. 
On the other side, I love my profession terrifically! With HT U.S. license I enable be recognise all over the world, including Russia. Thank to my profession, I met my wife, former histotech and now pathologist. And using our skills we beleive to make better this awfull situation regarding health protection in this Great country where so beautiful people live.
