    My son Teddy is now 4 years old. It has become evident that he loves to build & fix things, hopefully a future orthopaedist in the making. Iíve been at Hershey Medical Center, Penn State, for 2+ years now. The Hershey Factory is right down the road a mile from the hospital. Itís fascinating how certain times of the day it actually smells like simmering milk or melted chocolate. It never fails to put a smile on my face. I guess it reflects how sweet things are going here at Hershey. I continue to compete in Masterís Rowing Events in Phladelphia via rowing club Whitemarsh Boat Club.
