And what year did you actually retire then?
I retired in May two years ago, so that's May of '06. And I had some things that I wanted to spend some more time on not work related. I was never one of these people whose entire life was work, I always had a life outside of work anyway. I'm interested in genealogy and I've done a little of that over the years, but you know couldn't devote a lot of time to it. My wife and I built a new house, there's a lot of landscaping needed to be done all kinds of work needed to be done. And I just had a number of things that I wanted to do too. Now I've continued, I'm still writing papers, I still have some studies that I'm analyzing data for, and I'm still a cooperator with particularly with Professor Gorman on some ongoing studies. Those will phase out, that's an area for example that I knew that they've, that Dave Kretschmann would also, because he was in a more or less related field that I was doing, and so I started getting Dave involved and so I'll phase out and Dave is phasing in. It was just a good time for me I thought.
