Personal section

Are there heroes to boost the motivation to work at age? Yes, and see the paper of Matthew Reisz;

Are there friends in physics? Larry McLerran, who introduced me to QCD and taught me personal humour and integrity.

On what do I work in winter, and in summer?

Are there Photos of the groups? [1977: Nuclear Astrophysics Group;]
