              If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

                    That's quite a milestone and you've been a big part of something to be proud of.

                        Congratulations!!

                        Many thanks as well. About 13.5 years after you started I (also 13.5 yrs old at the time) received my first T&F News in the mail and it's only gotten better and better since my first issue on May 1984 with Ben Plucknett on the cover.

                        Bravo to you on 40 years of excellence!!

                            I do feel obligated to point out at this juncture that longevity and working at T&FN go hand in hand. After all, I'm only No. 3 on the current seniority list!
