It's very nice there about that time of year. Well, maybe a little dismal if it's raining.

In any event, I'm sure the Bayshore is nice.

BC - look for a seat sale - ocean/mountains to be viewed right from the bayshore!
AB - yes, the bayshore is nice, and the area it's in is extremely lovely. The weather in early Feb though, while it's generally warmer than most parts of Canada, is typically wet wet wet, hence us going on holidays then!

The first issue of AllerGen’s Research Success Stories has been mailed to Network members
and is available in soft copy on the AllerGen website. This is the first of an ongoing series of
publications intended for a lay audience. Issue 1 highlights five cutting-edge research and
development initiatives from across Canada. It is our hope that this publication offers disease
sufferers and their families and friends practical information about new, leading-edge research
about allergies, anaphylaxis, asthma and related immune diseases.
