    "II.1.7.1 Noodle"

    "III.3 *** Cookie ****"

    These two sections sound veeery interesting to me...

    I forgot to mention that I.4 is incomplete as noted by the lack of numbering.

    PE,

    Thanks for sharing this with us...and Merry Christmas!

    Bob Mazzullo

    P.S. Is the book going to be in a format where it will lay flat when opened (i.e. spiral bound, etc)? Will you be including some type of blank lab worksheets at the rear of the book to record formulas and procedures, that can be copied? Perhaps troubleshooting charts, (or checklists) as well?

    Just a few thoughts.....

    I wish I had your book when I was experimenting with the Matrix film emulsion. Esp. the chapter on how to make a matrix film! REgards - Jim

    Jim;

    You wrote the book so to speak on that chapter!

    Thanks for permission to use it!
