Sincerely, Dr. Dan

Welcome to my blog!

¡Bienvenido a mi blog!

Where should I start?


If you go to the MENU at the top of the screen, you can search for specific stories, or you can also view all the stories in either English or Spanish.

¿Dónde debería empezar?


Si va al MENÚ en la parte superior, puede buscar historias específicas o también puede ver todas las historias en inglés o español.

I am a retired pediatrician from Lake Worth, Florida. From my years of practicing medicine and traveling to many different places, I have a lot of stories to share.

Soy pediatra jubilado del sur de Florida en los EE. UU. De mis años de practicar medicina y viajes a muchos diferentes lugares, tengo muchas historias que compartir.

Join me every Thursday for new stories and Sundays for short humorous bonuses. I will also be featuring guest authors and photographers as well as interviews with interesting people.

Únete a mí todos los jueves para conocer nuevas historias, y los domingos para “extras” breves y divertidas. También contaré con autores y fotógrafos invitados, así como entrevistas con personas interesantes.

For now Sincerely, Dr. Dan is published simultaneously in English and Spanish, but with Google Translate on the right sidebar or on mobile versions at the bottom of the screen, you can view the blog in almost any language you want! I cannot guarantee the quality of those translations, but as of now, I hope the English and Spanish versions will attract a wide audience. French may be next!

Por ahora se publica simultáneamente en inglés y español, pero con el Traductor de Google en la barra lateral de la derecha o en versiones móviles, en la parte inferior de la pantalla, ¡puedes ver el blog en casi cualquier idioma que quieras! No puedo garantizar la calidad de esas traducciones, pero a partir de ahora, espero que las versiones en inglés y español atraigan a una amplia audiencia. ¡El francés puede ser la próxima!

Acknowledgements/ Agradecimientos:

I would like to thank Dan Tran (“a future Dr. Dan”) for help in designing the website and Edwin Ellis, Ph.D. for help with the Spanish translations.

I also appreciate the contributions of the members of my Spanish and French conversation groups. I hope that my stories will serve as the basis for discussions in groups of language learners such as mine.

Me gustaría agradecer a Dan Tran (“un futuro Dr. Dan”) por su ayuda en el diseño del blog y a Edwin Ellis, Ph.D. por su ayuda con las traducciones al español.

I know you’re not going to feel sorry for me, but please let me try anyway.  One morning a few weeks ago, when we woke up at 6 am, it was really cold here in Palm Beach County, Florida.  It had gone down to 39 degrees! From the weather forecast the day before, I knew…

Numbers 2022

When our yoga instructor, Shaina, asked us last week if anyone noticed that the date was 2/2/22, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing!  My wife thinks that my fascination with numbers is the ultimate in nerdiness, second only to my obsessive observation of spelling mistakes.  Although Shaina told us that she thought it was…


More than 60 years later, I often think about Mrs. Naomi Weller, my eight-grade English teacher.  (That’s when we still called it “English” class.) Mrs. Weller was a stickler for grammar.  Of the many things that I can remember about her class, she taught us how to diagram sentences, a skill which I use to…

Sounds of a Quiet Morning  

   Living on a large lake in Palm Beach County, Florida, we get to experience a variety of natural and man-made sounds every morning.  Since New Year’s Day fell this year on a Saturday, we had an unusual treat early in the morning.  Depending on the direction of the wind, we normally hear either the…
