Blatent Self Promotion and a Blog Announcement

I'm going to be doing two series of trainings, one on Behaviour and one on Sexuality, up in the Peterborough area this summer. I wanted to let readers from Ontario know so that those who want to register can do so. Go ahead and call Patty Barnes to get more information or to register.

Note to Readers: Joe and I have a very busy couple of weeks ahead of us with lots to accomplish. My posting here may be sporadic or may even stop for a few days. I've been writing this blog for a long time and I think we could all use a few days break.

Dave, I think we first met at your very first "Summer Institute" in Barrie when I signed up for the Sex course... and I'm still blushing a little! :) That must have been about 9 years ago. Can it be?

That was one of the best investments of four days I've ever made. What an awesome opportunity for people again this summer. And worth every penny. I had so much fun that it didn't feel like "work" - not at all - and yet I learned SO MUCH. It was an incredible experience. Hmmm. I wonder if I could talk my agency into sending me again....

Dave as much as I love Thunder Bay in the summer you make me wish I was closer to Peterborough

I had a great time at both trainings you held in Barrie a couple of years ago - very informative too. I even got up the nerve to wear pink devil horns to the last sexuality session. :)
