Re: Help with transcribing a medical journal

Hi Dirk

Thanks

I must admit I was not aware of the history of the introduction of SSD.

Medical records often contain non standard abbreviations. I wonder if these were standard abbreviations or just an individual's short hand?

Re: Hello from Michigan

Welcome to the site.

Looks like a great set up and vehicle restoration.

Also the tray set looks great and like new.

Cheers
