      A special THANK YOU

        While working as a consultant between 1983 and 2003 at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) on various projects including working with UCIMC, School of Medicine, School of Physical Sciences, School of Social Ecology, etc., my site, between 1994 and 2003, was hosted on a server located at the University of California, Irvine, and specifically at the UCI Science Library.
        A special THANK YOU to the Scientists, Physicians, Nurses, Veterinarians, Teachers, Librarians & Staff that I had a pleasure to work with.

      Some Great Failures.

        Quite a few years ago, I, with a few doctors, attempted to purchase the Dunes Hotel (does not exist now), in Las Vegas, Nevada. We were going to turn the 2nd floor into a 'Surgery Center' and turn the 3rd floor into a Conference Center for Health Science Professional's. Think about it, Plastic Surgery, Conference's, Night Shows, Gambling, Rest and Relaxation, and as 'icing' on the cake, a total write-off on your taxes. Today there are over 10 Surgery Centers in Los Vegas - Nose Jobs to Tummy Tucks.

        Ran for the Senate, need I say more.

        Failed 'Tying Shoes' in the 3rd grade.
