I have been on the wrong side of sixty for a few years now. It's not too bad a stretch, in fact; so enjoy and cherish the decade ahead of you. I will beat you to the wrong side of seventy too! I promise to give you insights into that stretch in a timely fashion! In the mean time, I extend to you my heartfelt wishes for continued, fruitful, vigorous and pioneering scholarship and teaching. You have taught us so much and we look forward to more! Cheers!
