   As he wrote in his email to UPBSFI Pres. Willie "Tatang" Vergara on 3/01/08:

       "I have attached my health articles for your gorgeous website.  If you could have a sort of an Archive in that section,

        so our Brods and other viewers can use it as a "library" for medical reference in the future..."
