At a conference

Aaarrgh, never managed to blog yesterday. I’m at a conference and always imagine that I will therefore have much more time for blogging, as ever though this is not true. Having a cool time though.
I’m at St George’s House in the grounds of Windsor Castle (you know you are somewhere posh when you sign in with a fountain pen!) at a forum on young people and Aids. There are some fascinating people here and some lively discussions about sexual health approaches in the UK and the role of Churches and other faith based organisations.
The presentations and discussions are all taking place in the Vicars Hall which dates from 1418 and is a pretty funky place to meet.
The coolest thing though was that last night was a private tour of St Georges Chapel which was staggeringly impressive with parts of it dating from 1240, wood carvings of supreme intricacy and the largest collection of heraldic plates in the world. It was awesome, shed loads of history and stunning architecture.
