Introduction . . .

This is a brand new blog, by a brand new blogger. However, some readers may recognize this blog's title, taken from a series of books of the same name. Unfortunately, time has a way of gradually making printed material all too quickly outdated -- especially these days -- and so, this blog was created partly as an attempt to address that issue.

As we move forward from here on-going efforts will be made to transfer selected content from the Better Microscopy books series into this new format, not only to provide to provide more effective distribution, but also as a means for making timely additions and overdue updates to that material. In addition, much previously unpublished material is now planned to be released, including high-resolution color images.

The current plan is to aim for a content mix that is both interesting and educational -- perhaps even inspiring -- and which will address the needs and interests of a wide range of user levels, from beginner to semi-professional. With more decades of Microscopy experience than I care to admit, I hope I will be able to contribute something to others in terms of both knowledge and enjoyment.

I hope you find something of interest in new undertaking as it takes shape and gain much from its content, now and well into the future!

Just beware of the occasional attempts at humor...

Thanks for visiting!

Here it is, three weeks since the last Post and (seemingly) too little accomplished, other than chalking-up another pesky Holiday as out of the way…

However, with Thanksgiving now over, one big turkey remains to be dealt with – namely the long-promised and persistently overdue "Water Immersion" release!

Yet, to be fair, much work has actually been accomplished on this. Unfortunately, the underlying tome seems to have assumed a life of its own; the more that is accomplished, the more there is that materializes, remaining to be addressed…

The basic problem seems to be that so little has been published on this topic that almost every minute aspect of it provides new and fertile ground for lengthy discussion – so much so that there may well be sufficient material for an entire book an the subject. (The mind boggles at the mere possibility…)

Still, this is only a Blog and there are practical limits to the scope and length of what can and should be covered here. So, to address this problem, and provide at least some useful coverage sooner, rather than later, the "new plan" is to divide the topic into Parts, and release these sequentially, as they are completed.

This approach scales back the immediate workload into something more reasonable while retaining the opportunity for further, more detailed coverage in the near future. (It would also seem to address the need to provide at least some basic coverage, before the Blog's readership grows too old to care!)

So, on this basis is now appears that there could be at least an initial document release on "Water Immersion" in about a week, or so – hopefully in time to avoid the inevitable disruptions of even more Holidays…

So, stay tuned – and Thank You for your patience!
