Update: What Does the Future Hold for the PGR.....

Due to a lack of time on my part, and a lack of much interest in the PGR after well over a year of existence, I am withdrawing it from the blogosphere unless another brave soul is willing to take over. Please email me at clarkbar2019 AT yahoo DOT com if you are interested in the task. It's been fun at times, but it mostly felt like work. And I have moved on to another very time consuming project that just doesn't fit very well with the PGR.

"When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the of warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter."

Volume 2 Edition 9.....

"(Who's a lucky dog? Lucky Dog is.)

Welcome to this rather business like, and unfortunately rather uninspired edition of Pediatric Grand Rounds. I promise that future editions will be more creative. To update those who are out of the loop, the PGR is now going to be published on the first Sunday of each month. The extra time between editions will hopefully allow for more submissions for hosts to work with and for less stress in finding hosts.

So who is Lucky Dog? He is the latest edition to the Bartram household thanks to the fine folks at the Humane Society. What does he have to do with the PGR? Nothing. Let's get started."

Volume 2 Edition 8.....

"At midnight just over a week ago, the seventh and final edition of the children’s wildly popular Harry Potter series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, was officially released.

To commemorate the occasion, each section of this week’s PGR begins with a quotation or some dialogue from the story. A total of 25 blog articles are included in this edition, each one just as magical as the next, and I hope you enjoy reading them all as much as I did. I intentionally kept my comments short so that you can focus on the content of each article.

So, without further delay, I present to you Pediatric Grand Rounds 2.8."

Volume 2 Edition 7.....

"Good Lord, what a week I’ve had. Unfortunately I can’t blog about it. My apologies for being a bit derelict in getting the word out – I’ll be on it next time. This week marked the 10 year anniversary of the blog. Look for a nice piece in this morning’s Wall Street Journal detailing the impact of blogging on the world.

Lot's of interesting stuff this week. Let's get started."
