From time to time, several medalists and aspiring medalists have posted on this web site. The site is provided by Joslin, and we should be using it. How about it. Where are the rest of you? There are at least 100 of us who were in Boston on June 4, 2011. There must be some of us who are on the internet. And there are a lot more who just can't wait to get their medals!

Tom,

That's a great idea not only to connect with one another, but I am sure that the group has much wisdom to share and many inspirational stories. Thanks for the suggestion.

On Saturday Nov. 3, on Facebook, Richard Vaughn informed his friends that he was in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage which was a result of a fall a couple of weeks ago. A procedure was being performed to drain the excess blood. Today, Sunday, Richard has reported that the procedure was successful, and I have noted that he has been busy making friends with the many people who had sent prayers and good wishes, and who were not already friends. Richard is a 50-Year Medalist, and has been T1 for about 67 years. It appears that he has been doing all of the above Facebook interaction with little or no assistance. I am praying that Richard's recovery will be complete and uneventful.

Update on Richard Vaughn. Richard reported that he was sent home from the hospital, and is continuing to recover. He also reported that on the way home, he and Anita were in a taxi. The car ahead of the taxi struck a deer, and their taxi was able to avoid hitting the car ahead, but they did run over the deer. Close call!
