I am very fortunate to work with a great group of people. Not only are they smart scientists, they are thoughtful and kind friends. The cherry on the sundae is that we all love FOOD !!! Eating food, talking about food and cooking food ! We will sit around, eat lunch together and make plans for the next meal. Call us gluttonous, but if that is a sin–it sure tastes great ! To make matters more interesting, we all identify with various regions of the world. It took us while to get organized but we finally had out Lab International Potluck !
