OH MY!  Now you are really bringing back the memories of the old days.

Our actual "End of Day" duty list in the late 60's, posted on the
board, read something like this...

1. Remove and store microtome knifes.  
2. Clean all areas of paraffin shavings.
3. Turn off water baths and embedding center.
4. Replace lids on stain and reagent containers.
5. Empty all ASH TRAYS.  (!)
6. etc.
7. etc.

Each bench had its own ash tray.  Can you believe it??  The only place
were NOT allowed to smoke was in the room with the Technicon Duo

" I will always gross at 3mm or less just to help you out from now on,
especially fatty specimens.  I will even teach the residents to gross
