  3. Thankyou everyone for your kind and generous remarks. I suppose 30 years is quite a long time especially these days, but in a sense the time has passed quite quickly. The years have nevertheless been interesting, at times challenging but always fascinating. I have always viewed it as being something of an adventure to travel through the many changes that have taken place and a privilige to have been associated with so many interesting, creative and adverturous people.
    Duncan
