Lately, the weather has not been acceptable. I live in Sunny and Warm South Florida. It seems like Canada kicked some cold front down here. I hate it, my bees hate it.

Tempting, tempting. It is in conflict with an expedition to Brazil, however.

Bear in mind at the converence that you will have 1000% more people watch it from youtube than in person.  So I recommend you find someone with a HD camera and man it for the entire conference.

Besides there is nothing like real and in person. Hands on Baby!

I will probably record a good bit of it. But I am not sure how much. I would like people to attend not watch from afar.

I am so excited to be coming, Brendhan.  I just made lotion bars to practice for one of my workshops - I've never made them before and I'm going crazy - they are FABULOUS.  I know I'm supposed to make lotion/hand cream, but I'm going to talk about these as well and bring some to try.

Hope to meet some of you face to face!

Linda T in Atlanta but almost on her way to Florida!

one of you better have a smart phone so that you can upload some updates and pics!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

We will be uploading pictures, hopefully before the drinking starts.

Anyone got bail money for Alan?
