Three years ago on your birthday, I recommended that you, Chris Gansberg plus Time Ferrell and I get together for another BBQ, perhaps in Plymouth. It has not happened yet and it is about time! I will get on to Chris about this remiss. Have a happy celebration and many more. David in Reno

Hello Duncan. I have a good - no great - friend who is a vet and epidemiologists in Ron Jackson now living in South Island. He was living in Palmerston North and worked/ consulted at Massey vet school. We worked together over many years and in several countries while I was working for FAO in Rome. I visited him and other Kiwi friends in NA in 2007. Get in touch with him if interested. Contact me if you need contacts. Ciao for now, David Ward BE241
