I am sorry but I have sent two messages to this net.  Not only did I 
not get a reply,,,,I did not even receive it myself (my message).  
Maybe someone can tell me what happened.

However, today I got a celegans message.  So will try again.

I have a couple students working with me learning the worm (as I am). 
 I started them off making stained whole mounts using the technique I 
use with chick whole mounts, that is, borax-carmine as the stain.  We 
did use Carnoy's fixative.  The slides did not turn out that bad but 
I am sure they could be better.  Does anyone out there have a 
technique that they like?

I also want the students to see if they can isolate developing 
embryos and stain and mount them also. I could use those in 
embryology in the spring.  Fir the first time, my students there are 
going to get worms in the lab.

Thanks all.
