Netherlands Lotus User Group - "Love" My Mug

Back from my quick trip to Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and time to thank the NL-LUG for hosting such a professional event and inviting me to speak. They had an enormous range of sessions with a surprising number from English speakers like me and the attendees I met and talked to seemed thrilled to be at such a large event in their region.  It also gave me a chance to catch up and have several bottles of wine with Rob Novak and Eileen Fitzgerald.  Did you know that if you drink enough wine and order desserts of a cheese plate and a chocolate fondue, eventually it will seem like a good idea to dip one in the other?  Also that if you do this it will taste delicious but you will be scared to repeat the experience completely sober?

Plus we all got this great "thanks for attending" gift. I love user groups.

It was great to have you at our conference. Thanks for the great feedback.

I feel I missed something at that dinner you had with Rob Novak. Next year's first bottles are on me if you will allow me.

Thank you very much Marnix and I do hope to see you again next year. Although my memories of the dinner may be blurred by the bottles of Sancerre, I definitely recall the conference itself and how much trouble you all went to.

Thanks for a little write-up so those of us who did not attend feel less lonely :)

and the mug is GREAT, it's almost as nice as a little Lego version of myself :)
