What's happened since leaving Central

1. I practiced Medicine off of City Line Avenue until 1999, then took a private practice opportunity in Naples, FL and haven't looked back. Beat the naysayers and finally got married 1997. So while most of you are grandparents, I've got a thirteen year old daughter! and learning to cope.

2. Do miss Bala Golf Club, the Orchestra, singing Gilbert & Sullivan with the Savoy Company, singing Verdi with Bel Canto Lyric Opera, going to Saturday matinees at the Metropolitan Opera.

3. Do not miss snow, ice, cold, sleet, hail, shovels, traffic jams, crime and HMO's. West coast of Florida is much different from the East coast. Much more Mid-West influence, from up and down the I-75 corridor. Come look at Naples for a second (or first) home.

4. I am about to birth a first novel in the Fall. Stay tuned.

Central's influence in my life

Like everyone else, Central's influence is massive. Today is May 17th. It's been 24 hours since I sent Mike Rieder the 30 newly-unearthed photos of the Miss 224 Dance. I couldn't upload them, so I put them in a Power Point. Within an hour (on Saturday!) he had the entire reunion committee at work regarding ways to import a Power Point into this site (not easy). Everyone jumped on it and I started getting emails about how to this and how to that, (along with a few prime jokes). Now..... these are guys I haven't seen (mostly) in 50 years! Yet the camaraderie, concern, friendship and (yes) affection felt exactly the same as when we were planning that Dance, so long ago. So I have to say, not only do the memories "never die", the feeling and the camaraderie "never die" as well. Tonight the difficult job of getting those slides onto the site is completed, I think by Mike and Mark Lipshutz. Everyone please go and look at their work. Thanks guys!

Re: Aerobics and brain: a few of us were talking and I tried to explain this contraption. It’s inexpensive and let’s you do “laps” in either a small pool or a crowded larger pool. Dan

Guys: serious post. New study out of Germany mentions more corona susceptibility in senior men with lowered testosterone levels. Somehow may contribute to cytokine storm. I have no idea how accurate this is, but keep eyes and ears open. As you know, it’s a simple blood test to order. Dan

Beware everyone...they’re trying an unapproved drug for Corona I just read. Don’t try to mainline it - we’ll start double blind, randomized studies first. And don’t buy it over the counter, just in case (unless you have heartburn).

So gents, if you didn’t care for the music, here’s one for the ages AND something society might have to grapple with down the road, as 70 million baby boomers reach mid seventies and beyond. If this needs to be removed herein, it’s ok.
