Congratulations!

When my mom got her PhD, I thought it was the second-greatest thing she'd accomplished up to that point. [Big Grin]

We've got a Dr. Who and now a Dr. X!

Makes me wonder Who will become Y or Z.

Congratulations, Xanth - in recognizing and sticking with and achieving your goal(s).

Must be that mountain-climbing personality of yours, eh? [Razz]

Best wishes for continuing success in your field,

Mountains are easier. Way easier. For one thing, they don't take as long. For another, the whole time you're up there you know it's going to end. One way or another, you're coming off the mountain.

Grad school, OTOH... [crazy]

The number one difference between grad school and hell? You'd never tell a friend to go to grad school.
