    Welcome to the Blog!
    You may not remember me after all these years and through the fog of time. Thank you for posting the list - a reminder for us all.

    1. ND, of course, I do remember you! I hope that I will be more active on this blog as time goes on. I have to admit that it is a fun way for staying in touch and sharing thoughts and ideas. Srianee (Bunter)

  2. Wonderful quote Srianee! There are so many great quotes from amazing people throughout history that I recall, but this one I cannot forget as it reminds me of my early medical student days and is also a constant reminder that we must focus our attention on what we got rather than what we haven't - a formula which has contributed so much to my own Peace of Mind. I first saw it in the Orthpaedic Clinic at GHC when doing a "sig" with that great teacher, Dr Rienzie Pieris.

    It's great to be in contact again. Time has passed relentlessly since those days of our youth. Taking a phrase from the poet Horace CARPE DIEM "Sieze the day". Please contribute to our Blog. It is a great way to be in touch on cyberspace. A few clicks of the rodent and you are in business!!

  4. Hi Bunter-good to hear from you-
    The one evil that might be worse than " wealth without work"might be
    "No wealth without work"! Please note-No slight to this great author of your quote is intended-Cheers- Rohini Ana
