About Me: 

Just a retired doc/surgeon (pediatric)! Now we (Jane and I) are busy catching up on our ten grandchildren (and their parents, to some degree!) in four North American cities, including hometown Winnipeg- a most wonderful retirement career! They all have great guest rooms! I'm still involved in Church, School, Inner City Health Outreach, some U of Manitoba undergrad surgery teaching and prodding the health field to get on with adopting electronic information exchange. Oh yes, ICT excites me, and I like 'apples' but don't have much time for 'windows' (is there some bias here-even though SJ did not show up for my retirement fete in 2006?!). But I put all my thrust and hope not in Steve, but in Jesus Christ!
