    A great event with excellent speakers and the chance to meet Humanists from all over the country. Paula and I were both impressed and would recommend others to attend next year.

    Sorry not to make the warm up session. Series of mishaps and delays. But very much enjoyed yesterday evening - great comedy and friendly people. Met up with some of the CLHG crowd but not all. Hope people will spot my beard and say hello.

    If all goes well and I manage to get a little more sleep I'll be at the warm up and keep my eyes open for the rest of the evening. Looking forward to it.
