Despite having attending hundreds of conferences and training courses, I have no photos of delegates with name tags helping themselves to enormous plate-fulls that will put them to sleep in afternoon sessions.
The only photo that I could find on the flash drive I've carried with me to the States was from a festive meal sometime in the 1980s, I don't know the actual date.

Annie Scotney, my mother, is the lady on the left of the front row. Its the last photo that I have of her before she died well into her eighties.

It has been an interesting experience to be in the USA at Halloween and to see pumpkins outside properties.
It was a bit of a shock therefore to also see the first scattering of snow at Halloween.

Food for four that would have fed twelve from a local Middle East restaurant and not a name tag in sight.
