I had a great time in the Rochester area with the people from the Epilepsy
Foundation. They had a lot of stuff lined up and a lot of contacts and kept
me plenty busy while I was in the area.
I gave talks at 2 Kiwanis meetings, 2 group meetings, did 9 interviews with
newspapers and 7 TV news stations, all in the area from Rochester to Buffalo.
I also got a tour of the epilepsy dept at Strong Memorial Hospital in
Rochester. They took me around and showed me the equipment they use for
testing and surgery, and I got to have a meeting with several of the
neurologists and neurosurgeons there. I especially enjoyed the tour and
meeting the people who work there.
The Epilepsy Foundation also let me catch up on my office work while I was
there. They let me update my flyer, file stuff away, ship stuff out, and run
off around 500 copies of my brochure to take with me. It was great to meet
the group there, and they went out of their way to make my stay in Rochester
enjoyable and memorable.
They took me to Niagara Falls to spend the day, and that was a blast!
Those falls are so awesome! We were able to ride on the Maid of the Mist boat
which took us right up to the falls. The water was rough and the mist from
the falls got us all wet.
Yesterday I stayed with Debbie Patt, owner of Clarendon Cheesecake Co.
She fed me all the cheesecake I wanted -- she has 50 different flavors!-- and
last night they took me out to Anchor Bar in Buffalo. Anchor Bar is where
Buffalo wings were invented, so that's what we had. When I asked the manager
for a free t-shirt, not only did he give me one, but two -- just in case I
wore one out! Everybody was so nice!
Also, Eastman Kodak Co in Rochester gave me an Advantage camera and 6 rolls
of film. That was a real suprise when they called and said stop by.
Today I'll be walking to Johnson Creek and hope to find a place to stay.
Then on saturday I'll head to Wrights Corner, where I'll be stying with
someone. On monday I'll be crossing over into Canada. That should be
interesting. I'm actually kindof dreading it. Since I look like a bag lady
pushing a grocery cart, I'm sure they'll really check me out before they let
me in. They'll probably want to empty out my cart and check for all the drugs
and anthrax I'm carrying, (yeah right) but I guess I'm willing for that. I am
anticipating that it won't be an easy breeze through customs, though.
Y'all take care, and have a great day. If you want to try the best
cheesecake you've ever eaten, check out www.clarendoncheesecakes.com. She'll
even ship it to you. She has over 50 flavors, and also makes organic,
dairy-free, and sugar free cakes. I tried about 8 different flavors while I
was here, and they were all great.
