Boatdoc seriously hurt in an accident.

On Oct 20/2010 Boatdoc was involved in a nasty motorcycle accident. He suffered eight broken ribs with external perforations and broken collar bone along with collapsed lungs. He was flown to Trauma Center at Jefferson
Hospital in Philadelphia where he spent last two weeks in ICU. As of today he is recovering at home. Thanks, Margaret Kay.

You' been given another chance to 'Stream'. My wife and I bought our AS while I was recovering from 3 major surgeries and she a disabling stroke. Buying the AS when neither of us were capable of traveling for months was very theraputic to just plan where we were going to travel. We call it 'alumatherapy'. It will work for you. Recover fast young fella.

All the best & a very speedy recovery, Boatdoc! I suspect we will see you online now more, since you may well be spending a little more time at home.

Come say hi and let us know what you are doing real soon!!!
