Hello, board friends! Mike and I have to say, this trip was worth it just to meet some of the amazing people who post here. I wish I could go into more detail and tell you everything that transpired over the last couple days, but we are taking Shirley Harvey to the airport this morning and then heading out to Lake Tahoe with Carol H.. Reno is a beautiful spot and we have Judy T. and her husband, Tony (a great guy who barbecues a great steak!), to thank for helping us to gather together. At our main meeting yesterday, we discussed topics such as how we can better reach more people about the dangers of excitotoxins, ideas and suggestions for NoMSG, creating a newcomer page for this site along with a separate spot to post scientific discussions, and even a new site where people can go for more documented material and info. Mike asked for and got some ideas for making the discussion board easier to use, and we discussed some projects that we could take on, such as a letter writing day, which we will fill you all in on. We hope to return to Reno next year. Think about joining us! Thank you so much Judy and Tony, for your hospitality and positive energy! Meeting you and Carol H., and Carol A. was worth the trip, and of course, seeing our former NoMSG friends, was the icing on the cake. We brainstormed, planned and I can tell you, these people are committed, brilliant, and full of concern for fellow victims. I spent most of the time with a silly grin on my face, I was so impressed with everyone and so thrilled to be with them! More later!
