Pheonix

Yes, I am out of town yet again

rain 101 °F

I am at the annual AANP (American Association of Naturopathic Physicians) convention in Pheonix this week. Yes, its very hot, and, did I say muggy? Last night I went out with my nephew, Becky's son, Raul Jr and his wife, Lynette. We went to a the Skeptical Chemist, one of her brother's 2 Irish Pubs. The Shepherd's Pie was quite good. We had a good talk and a great time. Raul said that although it usally rains in August, it hadn't in the past few years. It is rainng now. There were some amazing thunderheads earlier today. I have been quite busy with sessions, school reunions, which I am going to in about an hour, lunches, dinners, dances, visiting the exhibitors, etc. I am getting together with a lot of my colleagues I rarely get to see and meeting a lot of new ones. I spoke with one this morning who told me I was the first Naturopathic doc she had ever met, and I had let her hang around in my office for a day. Now she's in practice in Minneapolis. I really like to know that I am spreading the energy like that. Its great getting back to my roots like this. The talks have been informative and inspiring. I'm at my professional family reunion and I am dealing with the heat for it. It feels good.

Not sure Phoenix is someplace I'd want to go for a convention in August, but I'm glad you had fun. Good that you connected with Raul & Lynette also.

The association generally has the convention in Arizona in August because we can stay in places like the Arizona Biltmore for less than 1/2 the regular season rates. It was pretty much like a sauna every time I went outside. I walked back to my room after 3 am Sunday morning in a wet bathing suit and was perfectly comfortable.
