SICK CALL - DORE SCHWAB
The sad news is that Dore had a cerebral hemorrhage in the brain stem
last night. His family thought they had lost him but he has pulled
through, at least so far. The better news is that though problems
in this area affect fundamental movements, such as breathing, they
also regenerate more completely than those higher up in the brain.
However, it could happen again though it's good that it hasn't within
the last 24 hours.
He can't have visitors for a few days or phone calls. If you want to
send a card, his address is:
PO Box 772
Ross, CA 94957
Dore has served as chairman of Pacific Masters, Marketing chair,
Fitness chair, he has worked as an official at meets. He has always
been one of the most courtly and gracious of gentlemen.

OFF THE WALL
Last summer I took a trip to Thailand. While there I took about 1400
pictures with my digital camera. One of them was a nice picture of
Wat Arun - the Temple of the Dawn. I submitted it to Macdesktops and
it was featured this week. Macdesktops has a pictures that can be
used as desktops (Macintosh) or Wallpaper (PCs). If you are looking
for a picture of an exotic place, the picture is of the Thai temple,

Take a look at some of the great pictures they have there.
