    Well, the show probably was great. I managed to get rearended by a texter about 3 miles from home. So I am noiw scurrying about to get car repaired before it cancels next event for me.

      Goodness Jill! You've had some bad luck. Everything happens for a reason, tho' we don't realize it in the moment. I couldn't get coverage--forgot it was Palm Sunday weekend--so didn't make it either. Hope you are okay.

    How was the show? I ended up going to the Museum of Science with a friend and talked to a bunch of paleontologists for the whole day.

    If possible. It's a 3 hour drive, so I need to find an inexpensive place for over night -- maybe for 2 nights as I might make a side trip to Great Barrington. Any suggestions, beyond whatever TripAdvisor says, about a decent place to stay?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
