The 2007 web edition of the Dickerson-Zimmermann family bulletin:

http://zhurnaly.com/images/Family/Merle_2007.jpgMerle continues as a grad student in Computational Chemistry but his big accomplishment this year was to reenter the world of tournament chess. He placed fourth in his first bout and was remembered by the tournament director as the baby in the Snugli on his dad's back at chess tournaments more than 20 years ago.
Gray is approaching graduation using a mathematical algorithm which graphs as an asymptotic curve. While she is in a slightly flat area right now, we believe she may be close to reaching the point where the curve races upwards.http://zhurnaly.com/images/Family/Gray_2007.jpg
http://zhurnaly.com/images/Family/Paulette_2007.jpgPaulette has all but given up most of the other work she used to do for the rôles of wall and window cleaner, spackler, sander, room painter and interior decorator. Her color choices have shocked and ignited members of the design community all over the world — of Silver Spring and Kensington Maryland, that is.
Mark has maintained his stellar running record of finishing 9th of 10 in his age group, 109th out of 110 in his last outing; he has run at least one race as a woman, one as a different man, and a third as a donkey (named Don Quixote).http://zhurnaly.com/images/Family/Mark_2007.jpg
http://zhurnaly.com/images/Family/Robin_2007.jpgRobin graduated this past spring from the University of Maryland, College Park but he is also still there. He is now a master's student in mechanical engineering; his project is actually thermoacoustic engines which generate sound energy out of a heat difference the study of which combines the mathematical arcana of three engineering disciplines into one.
Due to the untimely death of Flopsy Bunny, the Dickerson-Zimmermann household is gradually losing the ability to coo and gurgle randomly, to ask "How's my little stinkums?", and to respond instantly to the ringing of bells. May she rest in peace.http://zhurnaly.com/images/Family/Flopsy_2007.jpg
