    Swansea has been Besieged with Cybermen and Daleks

    Sure, feel free to discuss it.

    I’m sorry but up to now I have not been able to listen to your podcasts. I should be able to now since you offer the MP3 format (thanks!), but was unable to connect to it over the past few days. I’ll keep trying. At the convention I was told you mentioned my name and DWNY (thanks again!).

    Well the Celebrity Lift Rides* were especially fun as the guests were always so talkative. Myself and two other DWNYers were in the elevator and it was Carroll Ann Ford that first addressed us, “So, are you all having a good time?” Then we each asked our questions in turn, “Are you enjoying the convention?”; “Are you enjoying staying at the hotel?”; and my question, “Are you enjoying Swansea?” (really original, eh?) to which she replied, “Well, I’ve been to Swansea before…” (yea… well, to be honest, no one seemed particularly enamored with Swansea, Wales; but that’s neither here nor there).

    A really nice thing about the convention was that because of the hotel size, it had to be limited to about 350 attendees, so it made mingling with the guests all that much easier.
    Here’s and idea, lets hold a convention with 30 guests at a Red Roof Inn out in Scranton, better yet, the Econo Lodge in Altoona, Pennsylvania.





    *by the way, I did not come up with the term “Celebrity Lift Ride.” That distinction belongs to fellow DWNYer, Al Mancuso. All rights reserved, (C) Al Mancuso. Hello Al.
