Vicky Szilagyi heartily thanks all of us who contributed to a gift for her when she passed the ABG blog baton recently after two years on the job. She very much appreciates the recognition. Thanks to everyone who pitched in for the gift.
[FYI, R. van Winkle: Vicky conceived this blogsite, composed our announcements, made us all look professional week after week, on time, organized our meetings, and made the job look easy.]
