Hi, friends! If you are wondering why I inserted the cool-looking Greek dude in the picture here, then read on. It has something to do with his belt. . .
It has been a while since I have posted here on MyHealthyMatters blog. That’s because I have been lying on a beach in the South Pacific, drinking cocktails with little umbrellas in them and in general being slothful.
Actually, no, I’ve been around doing my usual doctor stuff at Hennepin Healthcare. If you click on that link and scroll down just a bit you’ll find a picture of me and WCCO radio host Denny Long taken in the WCCO studios. I usually don’t like pictures of myself but I rather like this one! Check it out.
Of course, we’re still streaming on wccoradio.radio.com with our live Healthy Matters radio broadcast every Sunday morning at 7:30 Central time and also at 830 on your AM radio dial. I hope you tune in.
Since you asked . . . here’s another “Quick tips” post from last week’s Healthy Matters broadcast. I have included links to point you toward reliable information if you want to learn more. The Internet is full of not-so-reliable information so I try to include sources that I think you can trust. That’s assuming you trust me. As my texting daughter would say “hahahaha”!

Last Sunday I joined 197,890 of my closest friends at the Minnesota State Fair. Along with the best radio person in the business, Denny Long, I did a live, in-person broadcast of Healthy Matters. This was our 451th (!) live broadcast and my 9th year doing it from the state fair. I’m serious about the 197,000 figure. That is literally the number of people who attended – on just this one day – the country’s second-largest state fair (Texas is bigger but also runs twice as long).
To all of you who came out to see the show in person, thank you! It was great to meet people from all over the region . . . Moose Lake, Lonsdale, St. Louis Park, Woodbury . . . . but for those who didn’t make it last week, you have another chance! Come out to the Minnesota State Fair on Sunday, Sept 3, at 7:30 a.m. and say hi! We’ll do the show live from the veranda at the WCCO radio booth. If you come up and introduce yourself, I’ll put you on the radio and you can ask a health question. The WCCO radio booth is easy to find on Carnes Ave between Nelson and Underwood. It’s right by the Ye Olde Mill and right next to a Sweet Martha’s cookies.
