Greetings fellow "poo person"!

Can't help you with your problem I'm afraid as I know absolutely nothing
about carbon isotopes....Hope someone else has the answer though.

How's your work going otherwise?  Am trying to get the bulk of my thesis
finished by december in the hope of a job (not in science - thank god!)

We should have a drink sometime soon - are you coming to the big "marine"
drinking session at bar cleveland?

Hopefully will see you there
