This looks a great line up of speakers.

I hope the priests of the North of England are clamouring to sign up.

Will you be giving a full report on your blog?

The bad news is that the study day has had to be postponed. The good news is that I hope I`ll be able to go to it when it happens because I couldn`t make the original date.
