    We are having a baby on the 21st, but my wife is really encouraging me to go. “When are you ever going to have another chance?”, she says.

    Maybe I can come for part of it…

    Julie, I tried to email you regarding details of the conference. (Location, etc.) Can you email me? (I may be sending my Father in Law in my place)
