Happy New Year!!

Did you make any New Year's resolutions? Well here is one you can keep without a gym membership or a big investment of time -- in fact, it is one you can accomplish in five (5!!) minutes. Renew your membership to ANAS. That way you know you are "up to date" and won't miss your copy of the journal or anything else. If you are a new member, we welcome you as well -- we love adding new scientists to our group.
