First of all I apologize for being away. Some of it is my fault, some of it is George's. He changed this all around and being scared to death of this computer, changes chase me away. Anyway he raised enough H---with me, so here I am. An update on my health: Still in remission, every two month I get all the test at New England Medical Center in Boston and they have been good. I did have some surgery a couple weeks ago, had a growth removed from my right hip. A bit scary but it was benign. I am doing great, played golf with George the other day. Considering they gave me 3 to 15 months, 44 months ago, well you know, I feel pretty lucky. If any of you doubt the "Power" of Uechi-Ryu, take it from me, I know I would have been gone a long time ago without my training. I KNOW THIS, not a doubt in my mind. Cured??? No, but living it out to the fullest. Hopefully will be contributing here now. Best to all of you.
