In addition to our recent family celebrations of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah (another Thanksgivukkah in the books), we had a big, big day on December 1st when our daughter Dr. Erica Feldman matched at UCSD for her Pulmonary/Critical Care fellowship! She is already at UCSD, finishing up her Internal Medicine residency, and we are just OVER THE MOON that she will be staying here (close to us!) in San Diego.
Wishing all who celebrate a very Merry Christmas!
See ya on the Net,

Quote of the Week
“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.” ~~ Albert Einstein ~~ (March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955) was a German-born American theoretical physicist.
