Sephie represented the view of a first time attendee so well, that I can only say ditto for the moment.
Her spouse John and I were the two PCa newbies, plus first GFMPH for a few of the spouses/partners.
I will reiterate the offer I made a few days ago on the last time I looked 5-page GFMPH Rochester thread. Anyone who wants the low down via private email rather than somewhat public forum, use my profile data to contact me.
Just checked and Sephie has not yet added her mail to her profile.
Great job Sephie. You even spelled "no cliques" correctly whereas my post on other thread had it as "no clicks".
One thing I feel obligated to mention is that if Mr Worry Wart offers you one of his special recipe mints, find a way to kindly refuse.
