Well if we want to maybe switch gears a little bit and talk about some of the everyday activities inside the Lab. Are there any particular colleagues that stand out in your mind or interesting characters that worked at the Lab?

LS

Interesting characters. [pause]. I'd rather not go there cause they're all---you know everyone is an individual.

AP

Yeah.

LS

And they're all different and none that really, really, you know, was so out of line that jumps out at you. There were a lot of smart people there, I had a quite a few in my own group.

Were there any---besides the general kind of work environment, were there any activities that the Lab did as like a social networking kind of thing?

LS

They had the golf league, I used to sub on that for a while. I wouldn't say it was a strong social thing, they had some activities that I didn't participate in---I'm not a social butterfly. But I did enjoy the golf league and then you'd use to have golf outings where you'd take the afternoon off sometime and you'd go to different golf courses. I use to golf with them and I enjoyed that.
