    We also need to start the conversation about a Mini Down Under. The inaugural Mini was held at my place in 2007, and Goldies' in 2008, 2009 was a skip year, but 2010 needs to be back on.
    If you can get a weekend set down reletively soon, i would cross the ditch to met up with you vegemite lovers.

    Name a date and I'll try and come. Would have to say it was a lot of fun and very interesting 08.
    Ugh, this year will be too busy. I'd like to buy a vowel and more time please.
