Late last night, I bowed to presure from my family anddecided not to go to the RNA conference. There was no way I could justfy the worry I would put my family through as I was gong to fly down. My mother in particular was not keen. She had been caught up in 9/11 and really felt I should avoid getting anywhere near London.
In the end it came down to priorities and my family and their well being had to come before the RNA conference.
I am sure the conference will be wonderful. I spoke with Jan this morning and she said that most people had made it yesterday. The British spirit is very determined. And if I had been driving rather than usuing public transport, I would have been there. But this time -- no.
