Stanford Out, Newport In

I won't be picking up that EOS cap after all. I received a call last week from the Stanford doctor's scheduling desk. They erroneously booked me on a day when Dr. Gotlib will be out of the office. Our schedules don't sync again for another month, so I didn't bother to set another date.

That means that I'll be headed to Newport Beach a little sooner for that uninterrupted R&R (reading and 'riting) time.

Feel like getting away? Give me a call or drop me an email.

I'd love to get away! Sounds very relaxing. Unfortunately, it's a little far for me. Hope we can do something sometime.

Trish said...

given a choice, *I* would go to Newport, despite the distance difference for me!

let's hope the trip to Newport resolves the issue and tho I'd love to see you, would rather have you avoid my hospital!

Oh, that sounds tempting.

Thanks, Mari. Yesterday wasn't too relaxing (realized I forgot my cell charger and had to drive back home to get it; couldn't get ethernet connecetion to work), but today is very promising.

Ronni, I guess Newport, RI, would be a little closer.

Thanks, Trish. I think I could get used to this.

AH, Come on down. Seriously! I brought all the comforts of home with me: Shiraz, prosecco and fixings for hot toddies. I'm ready to entertain.

may be back near your town soon, the spouse has a job interview in San Diego!

altadenahiker said...

Ok! Early next week?

Susan C said...

Barbara, Really? That's so exciting. Can't wait to see you.

AH, Realized after the fact that my last comment sounds like a real lush. But I guess it did the trick. Will email you.

Busted. (Me, not you.)

But let us know how today's trip turns out. Thinking about you. said...


I love your blog—just wanted to let you know that Family Circle magazine just launched a cool new social networking site for women.

Earlier this year I sent out this video to illustrate how the current administration is masquerading as a leadership team different from the previous one. The video documents how the choice between Democrat and Republican is really no choice at all. Recent history has confirmed the message of this video. Here we are almost a year after Bush left office and we see that really only the rhetoric has changed. The same program of economic, military, and civil rights disintegration remains in full effect. The sequel to this video is now available to shed more light on this false choice of governance. This sequel exposes: 1) how mega banks like Goldman Sachs created this financial crisis to then introduce their solution: a government hand-out of trillions of dollars to them; 2) how this same scheme is being set up again on a global scale through the development of a cap-and-trade derivatives market; 3) how Obama is simply managing this economic disintegration program that was furthered by Bush (and his predecessors) going back as far as Carter; 4) how Obama's actions have been just as unconstitutional as Bush's and how our country is being pushed deeper into an oppressive surveillance society. The sooner we acknowledge this false choice of governance we are given, the better the chances are that we can produce a real choice that represents us, not the institutionalized power structure pillaging us. If you would like to learn more about the timely issues raised in these videos please visit this alternative news website, where these videos were produced.
