Hi Will,

Good luck on your lecture next year.
And BTW, congrats on your assingment in Munich. Before you leave don't forget to visit the Hofbrau beer hall, I liked it in there.

Hi Will, how is it in Germany? Been following your progress via your website - It sounds very interesting. [:)]

I'm sure you'll do great on your talk,

Sam

Hi Sam, thanks! Yes it's going well, enjoying it hugely! Lots of exciting Hubble news and images which you have no doubt seen by now.

I'm hoping to convey the incredible (and eminently interesting) astronomy that is going on in many of Hubble's best images. Stuff that we sometimes take for granted, hence the title of the talk. [:D]
