i lived in the coachilla valley in the late 80's. a beautiful spot indeed. but in the summertime it got to 110 degrees in the day and in the night cooled down to 104. we spent lots of time in the pool. just too hot and too far away form the east coast. the betty ford center is down the road at eisenhower medical center in rancho mirage. they have a fabulous drug treatment center there for creative people. hint hint ;-) http://www.bettyfordcenter.org/ i'll write more about palm springs soon. yeah right, just like i said two months ago i'd write more about my three mayflower ancestors and never have!
