  • Calling Southern Californians & Arizonans & Nevadans

    Hello, all!!! And what are YOU doing on Tuesday, March 25th?

    A few of us HCMers will be meeting in Newport Beach, CA, for lunch next Tuesday. I know it is pretty short notice, but we'd love to have you join us. Let us know if you are interested and we'll send you the details in a PM or an email.

    If you can't make it this time, tell us if you'd be interested in a get-together some other time or place.

    Stay well, all. I join Sarah in praying that you, your loved ones, and all the innocents around the world are protected from violence and harm.

      Pat, can you PM me the details? I would like to try to make it. I can't promise though. My parents are leaving just today to go back to SC and I'm not sure how much I'll be up to another trip to the LA area by next week. But I'd love to come if I can.

        Northern California

        I have always wondered why every one seperates Northern California and Southern Ca. And now even the HCMA is doing it.
        First you take all of our water, and now were not invited to a HCMA meeting.
        You also have the only specialist that is recommended by the HCMA in California also. I should make an appointment to come see him.
        Alone in NO Cal.

          Ah, Chris. I'd be glad to meet with you if you want to come join us. When do you want to come? But I can't help with the hoarding of the only doc around.

            Oh, Chris, I'm SO sorry you feel left out! I just figured you would not be willing to come to that decadent part of California--which is so full of pollution and other hazards. After all, Northern California has fresh air, wonderful trees, lots of hikers and tree-huggers, etc., etc.

            But, if you want to join us, we'd love to have you! Let us know! Also, you all in Oregon, Washington, Western Canada, where ever are also welcome. Too bad you already decided you can't make it, Lisa. This could become the biggest thing since _____ (fill in the blank)

                Ha

                None of you know what it is like till you live in Illinois which consists of two parts:

                CHICAGO

                The rest of Illinois

                Seriously. The rest is almost all farmland except for the splotch of urbanity at the top.

                Try getting legislation passed in that climate.

                S

                Have fun at your party. Ours will be better! :P

                  Oh, but Sarah. I do know all too well. Any time my husband is asked where he's from and he says Illinois, the next question is always, oh, Chicago? And the only time he's ever been to Chicago is going through O'Hare. You know, IL has about 11 million people in it I think and about 8 million of them are in Cook County. That's saying something.
