HELEN INGRAM, who has attended the BNTC regularly in recent years (see, e.g., here, here, here, and here), can't make it this year, but she sent strict instructions that I am to post pictures of the whisky drinking event in Lloyd Pietersen's room, which took place last night. I obey.
Helen, Cat, and Mark, we miss you!
Oh ... and there were some good papers at the conference too.
UPDATE (9 September): More here.
