Thanks for the encouraging words. I am looking forward to going, but it is with a fealing of fear as well. I grow up in a world where changing your life was the worse thing you could do. Above all you maintained the status quo.

Stephen and Thadd, I am looking forward to meeting both of you there. I almost asked for a private room, but I am glad I didn't. Thanks for sharing about the late night chats, Stephen. Thadd, as another first timer, let ask you to keep doing what ever it takes to be there. I know it will be hard, but it sure sounds like it will be worth it.

Michael Joseph and Mr don, thanks for sharing your experiences.

Thanks to all of you.
