This is the year I put a BCPS after my name. If you are curious, that stands for Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist. I need to take an exam in October...after that, I will be moving to Britain to run for Parliament. ($1 to the first person who can tell me why that's funny; please post your answer in the comments section).
So anyway, I spent the last several days in Monterey, at a review for this exam. The review was a bit like a year of pharmacy school condensed into 4 days. My head kind of hurts.
Mi amigo Winston and I stayed at Asilomar,which is sort of like going to summer camp...only with slightly better rooms. There were deer everywhere; deer just kind of stare at you when you're about to crash into them.
I brought the bicycle along, and rode 17 mile drive in both directions (clockwise is much easier). I did not bring the camera, but Winston took some pictures of the Lone Cypress with his cell phone. I would post one here, but evidently the Pebble Beach Company has trademarked this tree...and it's likeness. How do you trademark the likeness of a tree? I am almost certain that the Pebble Beach Company will never happen across my page, but you never know.
And finally, if I have not hit you up for money yet: How about making a small donation to the American Diabetes Association?
