I’m escaping the heat and political malarkey

It's about to get even crazier than usual in Florida, especially in Tampa Bay, which soon will host the Republican National Convention.

So I'm taking off a couple of weeks to travel in Ireland and Scotland -- my first time to visit either. I see in the travel books that I'll probably need a sweater or jacket. Hallelujah!

I'll be back at the computer on Aug. 30. Meanwhile, Health News Florida will be managed by Editorial Assistant Lottie Watts. Please treat her kindly. She can be reached at

Don't miss her column on the Consumer Corner page about a dental adventure.
