Comments:

I've traded in my stethoscope for a computer keyboard, and am so excited to announce my memoir about my life and work as a "bush doctor" in Alaska is set for national release by Pegasus Books of New York & London on Sept. 4th.

Please help my book make a big splash on Amazon! Visit my website: www.OnCallintheArctic.com and pre-order your copy and be sure to register on the website to win an Amazon Gift Card!

School Story:

Probably my fondest memory is Leadership Class taught by Dr. Baca. His encouragement helped me crack the shell I'd built around myself since my parent's divorce and struggles I had trying to deal with drug problems of one of my brothers.

Hi Art. Well, congrats. What happened to all the great dark hair? I must say you look very distinguished now and that's a very good thing. I hope you have a great birthday and many more to come.

Hi Benji. Like Steve Gray said, I hope you are safe from the winds. You got a birthday coming up and you'll wanna be safe and warm to enjoy it. How about posting to the site so everyone concerned about you will know how you are! God bless.

It happened!! My memoir "On Call in the Arctic: A Doctor's Pursuit of Life, Love & Miracles in the Alaskan Frontier" launched on Sept 4th as planned by my publisher and on that day I was #1 in New Releases on Amazon. What an exciting thing to see. I hope everyone in the class will visit my website www.OnCallintheArctic.com and give my book a look. And if you buy and read it, PLEASE consider writing a review as I understand reviews can make or break a writer's career especially if they are good. Thanks so much, everyone. I hope to see you all at the next reunion.

I also remember Jim and wish I would have known more about his family life when we were in school so I could have befriended him more. Hilaire said very well. My heart goes out to those who will miss him.

Hi Everyone. Boy my readers really loved the last issue of "Doc Talk Today" where I covered the health benefits of chocolate and coffee! I'm hoping for the same reaction on the issue coming out later this week on wine! If you don't currently get "Doc Talk Today" please visit my website and subscribe. It's free - and I think you'll like it. www.DocTalkToday.com

Hi Barbara. Just happened to see your profile today. Can you believe were actually going to be 73 and just a few months? Where has the time gone? I hope you're doing well.
