Re: Mission Impossible

Happy Holidays to the List!

Thanks to all who replied.  I printed out all of the responses my query
generated (editing them to avoid offending my boss) and showed them to him.
He told me that you folks don't know anything, showed me two pictures from
Amano's first book and said he wanted that.  I said I needed more supplies
to work with.  He said no.  I declined to do the tank.

I plan to spend the holiday brushing up the ol' resume.  It was bad enough
when he yanked the protien skimmers off the saltwater systems because they
cost too much to run.

I do appreciate the response.  At least I tried.


Special holiday thanks to Listmom!
