On Retreat

Sorry to take you unawares, I had not anticipated being able to blog tonight but Cam brought his laptop and mobile modem and offered me the use of it to blog which is very understanding of him.
We are at the retreat and the first day has gone well. There are 11 of us here, Steve couldn't make it due to family illness, and everyone has settled in well and seem to be having a good time.

There was a very entertaining and at times hilarious game of Balderdash this evening with Cam's definition of the word "Hornsman" bringing the house down. The real meaning is a plumed viper but his meaning, that it describes a certain style of mustache as in  "Give me a Hornsman thanks barber" is vastly superior and we are considering submitting it to Webster and Oxford for inclusion in their 2010 editions.

The campsite is quiet, everyone is in bed/asleep. I'll be following momentarily.

Just to say thank you Marcus for organising such a relaxing fun networking opportunity. All the best to you and your family (and I hope Rhonda buys one of your artworks! hehe)
