Yet, this is not as discouraging as you might think, good research is not to be undervalued, look long enough and you can find the perfect publication for what you are working on, and just because the one you …

Our Tenth Anniversary – Submissions WANTED!!!

So, we have yet to receive any gifts for Our Tenth Anniversary, but fear not, upon further research, I discovered that although TIN is considered the TRADITIONAL tenth anniversary material, MODERN variations are ALUMINUM or DIAMONDS. Hmmmm. Well, diamonds might be out since they are so contentiously acquired, but perhaps you can get us something ALUMINUM? A can of pop perhaps?  Yes, that would be nice.

Are you excited …
