He did ...

trying to give back

You know how you feel guilty b/c you are continually having to ask for assistance with things (well - not to project my neuroses on all of you - but this is how I feel)...

WELL! Yesterday I had the opportunity to help someone else. One of the guys I work with (I am the ONLY woman in my dept which produces a litany of funny stories apart from this) needed a ride to drop ...

Antegren in my e-mail

Got this in an MS e-mail this morning.......More good news about Antegren.....Kim
