I am sure you are all wondering what’s been happening about the dialysis patient organizations- and, now, it seems that some dialysis clinics- are paying the health insurance premiums for dialysis patients.

Leonard Bernstein. Arthur Fielder. Michael Tilson Thomas. Marvin Hamlisch. Marin Alsop.

Global Warming. Wait- don’t run away. This is a whole new take on the problem.
No, I am not going to say (as many an idiotic politician declares) that it is a hoax. Yes, the rise in sea level is real. Ask anyone who lives in Norfolk or the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Ocean front property is often one’s front door nowadays.
When I first began designing water treatment (and water reuse) systems back in the 1970s, the primary method used to ensure that microbial populations were kept at bay was chlorination. At least in the States. Europe relied on ozonation.

A new day may be dawning. Or not.
Most of you know that I work with a slew of folks and companies to help them pay the lowest amount of taxes required by law.
