How cool- sure nice to see a couple'a parents put a great brain in their kid's head and then keep him alive long enough to do something so cool with the great gifts he's been lent. Jeeeze- with the tears, huh. AIR, this guy's gonna go on for a doctorate- you're probably going to need a lot of mood stabilizing medication as there is much to celebrate along the path to that one.

The absolute coolest is how fucking proud you are- I also remember how you were a while back when his volcano or algorithm or whatnot won the local county science fair. Me and my dad didn't have that kind of thing, and my mom introduces me as her son, Dr. rent a friend, and tells everyone if I would have worked just a little harder I could have been a Vet.

Just very cool all the way around...Nothing but the best!

Thanks all, your kind words will never be forgotten.
He is going to be shown these in a day or two, to see how well my friends write about him.

In reply, he is going to talk over a progression to a doctorate with his tutor/mentor, and he will go on from there.

Again, our heartfelt thanks to you all.

Well I must buy a lottery ticket, because they say good things come in threes, right?

Just got a message from David Boettcher, well known member of the NAWCC and owner of vintagewatchstraps.com, that his article about the first automatic watches has been published in the British Horological Journal, and I am mentioned in it, as I helped him a little.
He is getting the editor to send me a copy, so will have some serious bragging rights!
