Wow, I wish I could be there! Please tell everyone hi for me! Also will you let them know that they are welcome to attend any of our CEC 877 online meetings too. The dates and times will be posted on http://cec877.pbwiki.com. Last night we had a great meeting which ended up being an interview with Lisa Parisi (and of course we talked about you too). You can go to the wiki page and click on the link to see the recording. It was wonderful!
