;) Just like to add that
DrTait stayed for the whole afternoon. He told us that he had "LEARNT A LOT AND WAS GOING AWAY WITH A NEW PERSPECTIVE"!!!

He said we all must protest individually and as a group over every thing that we see as an injustice and that finally with pressure from us all, the Buracracy will have to listen!
So there you are right from the top in his profession!!

An hilarious dinner in a large restuarant and we all had some very funny CM stories to tell.
So a big day tomorrow with workshops where we all hope we will learn more in our struggle to achieve a good outcome in obtaining our rights with
ACC. Working with them and striving for justice too!!

Thanks for that Justcallin. What you said about Mr Barrie Tait almost brought me to tears. I am blessed with having met this man. Who must be something close to a medical saint for the disabled. He is so serious yet straightforward, honest and approachable. God I am a pussy! I have never felt so emotional about missing something for years. Still this is no time for going soft!

I'd really like to hear more about the conference. Do you have a mailing list for the conference materials? It must have been awesome to be part of the weekend. Unfortunately I wasn't able to go.
