Blurb about Steinway in general:

Since 1853, Steinway pianos have set an uncompromising standard for sound, touch, beauty, and investment value. Handcrafting each Steinway requires up to one full year creating an instrument of rare quality and global renown. Not surprisingly, Steinway remains the choice of 9 out of 10 concert artists, and countless pianists, composers, and performers around the world.


By the way, the Modesto Symphony has a Steinway S for sale:

1949 Steinway S Grand; Serial Number 328,910; has a bench; Walnut case.  Dale Erwin has been working on this piano, telephone 577-8397.  I hope to try this out sometime.  Write me email if you're interested:

Realestate for sale!  Our house - only 3 years young.  It has a mini citrus orchard (you like oranges and grapefruits? see the tangerines below) in the back, along with large planters for organic vegetable growing.  Located in Village One, near schools and parks, and of course, close to our new office (see down, down below)

Tangerines I harvested in summer of 2005 from my backyard.  Sitting on my kitchen countertop.

Organic Heirloom tomatoes that I grew on Texas Tomato Cages.  Yup, grown on those automatically watered planters in the back of that house which is for sale.  Grown from seed.

My organic Eggplants

I'll miss this lace leaf Japanese maple tree if the house gets sold.  It sits right in front of the house.  I've managed to pull out all those weeds.

The backyard (yup, same house).  Those little citrus trees are a bit bigger now.  And the fountain is custom from Sausalito, CA.  And sadly, it's too big for me to move, and it stays on the property.

Close up picture of the "rebecca fountain."


I wanted to make a large logo.  This is an aerial shot of a logo I printed on a laser printer on about 36 sheets of paper and taped together.  I took this picture from the top of my stairs.

The beginnings of a dream.  The office schematics/sketch.  This is not the final floor plan, but this is the first version drawn to scale, freehand, by Dr. Wu.

I took this picture from the outside of our new office building, standing in the parking lot, and taking a picture of the inside - empty shell.  You can see the window on the other side sports the large circular logo that I pasted together.  Construction on the inside has started on July 5, 2006.

The view of the office, on the side next to Hudson Station Post Office on Sylvan Ave, Modesto.

My new award!  (well, it's not for photography).  The teaching award, assistant professor for UC Davis.  Thanks to all that have helped me achieve this award, especially my former staff at McHenry Medical Group.

A surgeon at work.  Dr. Lee is the one with the dark gloves (Ortho-Triflex).  Stanislaus Surgical Hospital: a hospital undergoing some transition these days.

My house made the cover:

It's for sale!  Buy it.  Talk to me!
