Oh good.  It's not jut me then.  

I finally got so fed up with the yearly variations on "what you leaned 
before isn't true - but THIS is" that I gave up and went to a hippie 
crunchy granola college (terms I use with some degree of affection), 
and studied taxidermy.  At least no one could tell me what I had 
learned before wasn't the "full truth" of museum preparation.

If nothing else, going to school in Maine gave me lots of long winter 
nights, perfect for curling up (metaphorically) with Vlad & company.
