Thanks for stopping by in Blogland today.
Friday and day 2 at the NEC was an interesting day, I have to say.
Not the usual thronging crowds we have come to expect in Birmingham.
Whilst it was great for the visitors, because they could get around with room to spare and watch all the demos they could handle, it was a trifle disconcerting for exhibitors.
But it was nice to have time to spend with old friends and loyal customers.
And anyway, in the big scheme of things, what's a day at the NEC?
Which collided with International happiness Day
AND a celestial synchronizing of the sun and moon in the morning!
We probably missed some vital sales first thing,
because we were far too excited being happy and trying not to stare at the sun!
So we stared at a tiny little crescent shadow on a piece of card instead.
Here we have the partial eclipse die-hards,
refusing to miss the mega event.
Dave, true to form, had to look, even when told not to.
To be brutally honest, it was a bit reminiscent of going to the Tate Modern.
You aren't remotely impressed, but everybody else is in raptures about 2 tin cans connected by a piece of string, so you wonder if you've missed a vital link, and don't like to admit it.
