Mr. Luna, if that is the case, Don is right, the name brings back great memories
of the beginning of Histology emerging out of the basement and into the
paramedical field.  Lee Luna was all he said and more.  I hope you are
successful with the exam and Don is right also about keep trying.  You only fail
when you quit trying.  If you need help we are here, just ask.

But No Don, Not everyone will excuse and look over your old fartness.  The old
foagies who remember when you "spoke your younger mind" in the good old days.  I
remember Lee Luna and the founders of NSH stressed with apprehension watching a
"much younger Don" do a video for NSH on Histology hoping that he would hold his
tongue on tape.  You did a great job, Don.

I too have been told I have reached the age where I do not have to accept
everything thrown my way, so they can smile and say OK she is old, let's
overlook it.  :) :)  And of course there is road rage.
