Thought I'd share some good news for which Bill & I cannot take credit. Our daughter (Dr. Lora Hughes Bean) a genetic scientist, a workaholic and determined parent, is a player in vaccine testing. Right now she's setting up labs in California and Wales from her office in Atlanta. She's senior director, quality control, for Perkin Elmer, a global genetics testing firm best known for those infant heel stick tests. The labs will test a vaccine on thousands of volunteers throughout California and Great Britain. Numerous other vaccines are being tested by companies worldwide. When we last spoke, the equipment had been installed and staff training was in progress. At 5 a.m. she's on with Wales; at 6 p.m. with CA. Keep the faith! Multiple multiple vaccines are being tested worldwide for the best populations. Sadly--I could cry--her kids friends' parents in suburban Atlanta think she's foolish to work long hours for this no-big-deal hoax; No masks! And they're educated, supposedly. Again, we cannot take credit. Anyone with kids knows they will be what they will be. Take Guy and his sculptures. For Lori, and A- was the end of the world, even in grade school. Stay well and safe! Vaccines are coming.

Happy Birthday, Carol. Remembering fondly all the times we and Ruthie walked to school together. Have a fine, healthy year.

Our daughter Lori and son-in-law, both genetic scientists, are working different angles for covid solutions, his seriology lab is at the CDC. She's in charge of quality control at an international genetics company. Son in Cleveland, an industrial designer, is retrofitting corporate offices for their staffs to return safely. His wife, a small animal vet, keeps her staff employed and safe while helping little patients and their human parents. Blessings to everyone whose family and friends are enabling essential business and service, including those who keep quietly plugging away.
