Its another beautiful day in Cape Town today - well, it is from where I am looking at it here on the southside of the mountain. You never can tell with this awesome city. You can drive around the peninsula and experience all four seasons in one day :o) On Saturday evening the hubs and I went to drink in one of the spectacular sunsets that we experience here and it was a really good one, especially in light of the fact that the next day was Valentines Day. Take a look for yourself and you will know what I mean.....

The organizing and co-ordinating of the conference is going very well. It is my intention that we bring those who are attending this exciting event a slick, polished and highly entertaining and educational day.

 Exciting news is that Sam Wilson Editor in Chief of Women24, Food24 and Parent24 has agreed to speak on one of the topics and Jane-Anne Hobbs, better known as Juno, professional book editor, sub-editor and writer of 20 years experience and author of the fabulous blog Scrumptious SA is also going to present a topic that she is very passionate about.

Those are stunning sunset pictures. I also like to look at the sunsets.I like the topic list for the conference and I lurk around a lot of the blogs. Maybe this could be something that I should attend and start my own blog. Maybe!
