I hear you clara, that makes a lot of sense.  I was proposing it only
really on the basis that it would be properly organised and if anyone
was up for it.  you've definitely brought me down to ground a bit there
- must've spent a little too long doing events with People & Plant I

like this fishbowl idea.....
