All I can say is I wish I was going to beautiful Cornwall to see the
amazing Solar Eclipse and experience the vibe at Lizard '99. Maybe
they'll send me as a correspondent to report on the live webcast that
will be happening starting Saturday August 7th at 1pm GMT (you can log on
at http://www.lizard.net) or most likely I'll have to
hear about it from
those who were lucky enough to experience it.
Don't miss it if you can. Emma says it will be the coolest!
