Sherry Guthrie here. I'am still scanning and teaching my students the
old timers way. It's worked well fro almost 20 years why change
positions now. By the way I'am recomending your new book to my class
of students this semester. It's great for those who are cross training
intovascular and need some great technique. Tell Kathleen I enjoyed
getting together with her in Reno. Dee says to say Hi to you both.
Be sure to let me know how your tally comes out.
