        Thanks – and best wishes to you and to your family.

        Hope to see you in Brandon again soon for some more ‘jellies’ paleontological microscopy!

        David, absolutely, there is some that I would really like to do, and soon. I may well have jury duty in January and February, though, and that puts a bit of a crimp on things!

      Peter, I am awaiting those papers too! But I hope it won’t be too long – we are putting the finishing touches to two manuscripts.
