Tom's retirement party was tonight. Tom was a great help to me when I joined Credit Risk in 1999, and I will certainly miss his way of doing things in future. It's been a privilege to know and work with him. In other news, I was placed second this morning, with a reading from Alternative 3. See http://www.thule.org/alt3.html for details. Kathe won with a reading from The Wizard of Oz. I'm just waiting for Viv to pick me up.
