Leaving home again [Feb. 7th, 2011|05:46 pm]

It’s looking VERY snowy here lately. We have not had any major snowfalls, just frequent smaller ones. The result is a permanent winter wonderland look, like the above. It’s our house, btw, for those not familiar with my story.

Off to Toronto tomorrow, returning Friday evening, for a conference; it's The Gay Men’s Sexual Health Summit. I’m on the provincial organizing committee but in truth I haven’t had to do a lot.

There’ll be about 200 plus people there - HIV prevention and support workers from across Ontario. My colleague Brian is presenting for PositiveLite.com in a Friday afternoon session; in between I have a few interviews to videotape, including one with Jim Pickett, an American who is well known in our movement. So far, I’m mostly the on-camera guy and Brian is behind the camera. I’m not sure it shouldn’t be the other way around, as he’s way more photogenic than me, LOL. However, I can stumble through an interview with the best of them, as those familiar with my previous efforts know.

Anyway, I’ll be at the Delta Chelsea Hotel which is right downtown but otherwise about my least favourite Toronto hotel.

Oh and I’m hoping to have dinner with new Torontonian, the muddster Thursday.

Be good everybody.

I know the Delta Chelsea well. Fortunately the six weeks I spent there were made comfortable by a wonderful Russian maid who took a shine to me! Hope you have a wonderful conference!

I love the picture of your home!

HUGS!

It's a huge hotel, and it needs a bit of a facelift (like a lot of us.)

Enjoy your time, my friend. And for the record, I think they couldn't have made a better choice for the person in front of the camera.
