Thank you Adrian for the kind words. We are certain to miss your participation but I'm certain that we all wish you the very best.

To all my histocolleagues:
I want to thank you all for the enlightenment and entertainment you have provided me over the past 2+ years.
I am not any variety of histologist, but a biochemist.  I did some histology in high school in 1963, and loved it, then left it for 37 years.  After being out of work for 2 years, Cytologix (Cambridge, MA) were kind enough to give me a job (essentially as a programmer), and I worked my way back into the lab, and really enjoyed it.  My chemistry and general scientific training gave me a leg-up on staining, and I was happy to apply them to help develop their special stains, and adapt them to the Artisan.  During this time, I regularly read and enjoyed the Histonet, even contributed a few comments here and there without being shot down in flames.
After I was laid off a year ago, I kept up with the Histonet; you guys helped keep my spirits up, and I am very grateful.  I have now just started back in a job in my previous speciality (immunoassay), and, although I would like to, I haven't the time to keep up with histology anymore.
So, thank you, Vinnie, John, Ian, Gayle, Louise, Bob, Steve, Laurie, Fred, Allison, Pam, Andy, Richard, Betsy, Peggy, and so many others.  You've been great companions, and I shall miss you.
Adrian Leek.
