    Meaning no disrespect to you Owen, but fortunately, white shirts and neck ties are not indicators of the need for respect. Nor is smooth talking, it is actions and integrity that command respect.

    I used to tell my young engineers who would show up for our conferences those ties you are wearing are nothing but an indication that you are planning on being hanged for something you are about to or have already done so you already have the noose around your necks. To me a tie is nothing more than a vanity ornament just like jewelry ie rings necklace's and wrist watches. The only time anyone ever saw me wear one was while I was in the Army and then only when we had to wear the silly dress uniforms for parades or other equally useless events. I'm the same way about a suit I don't own one and refuse to wear one for any reason. I gave both my oral master's and doctoral dissertations wearing jeans and a western shirt and boots my summation was they took me as I was or not made no difference to me.
    When ever I see someone wearing a tie in a work place my first thought is they brought their own rope

    So it's actually "Dr. S"!

    The number of advanced degrees held by members of this forum is humbling. And it's the good degrees too.

    Proper black and white photography denotes as many possible shades [grey] and total black and white; not easy in snow settings. This is a good example! The focus and depth of field are outstanding too.

    Frank S,
    Doctors practice, I think that you are well past that stage, your accomplishments are respected by many here.
