I;m posting this in here as well as in Misc because NOT everyone sees that. I trust this is OK., I just spoke with Alex Tabor, Co-founder of the VCCC. He's had some serious health issues recently. He's being treated for prostate cancer. He seems to have 'turned a corner' and is improving. He ASKED me to relay this and to say "Hi'" to everyone. Sometime this summer, I'm going to go and visit him. He only lives about an hour from me now. You might want to keep him your your "good thoughts/prayers". I'll keep you all abreast of the situation.
John, Vice Pres. VCCC (the only VCCC)

Thanks for getting in touch with him, John. I hope he continues to get better. I'm sure he'd appreciate your visit.

I'm so very sorry to hear this. I was just thinking about Alex the other day. Please send him my love and concern.

I know how upsetting hearing that horrid word, Cancer can be. Fears, thoughts of every kind run through your mind.
He sounds absolutely fine (and positive) on the phone. He wants me to see his collection, too, especially the "non-electrics".
