Correct Alan,Damian is a nice chap,but he wasn't well enough for pints that night.Dr Burgess and his wife were though,and enjoyed the Guiness.
Although he could hardly get a word in,he was hearing all about wild discus and angels ;) ;) :laugh:

Ummm....wonder who was talking about wild discus and angels? ;)

Not sure if I can make the night as we have a few family issues going on at the moment.
But, hope all have a good night.

Is this guy the replacement for David Ford? or is David Ford still around at Aquarian? or am I so out of date with things nowadays?

on a serious note, this is a great initiative by petstop and damian and should be supported by everybody who can make the time to attend. there is always something to learn from experienced speakers such as dr. burgess.
and i think acara is going to buy us all a pint. :laugh:

a big thank you to petstop, damian and dr peter burgess.
i went along to this with gerry evans and it was very enjoyable. damian was a great host and dr burgess was a great speaker and his talk included information about various products and aspects of parasitism and medications. tea and coffee etc was available and i ate half a box of biscuits because i missed my dinner for the cause lol. the attendance was typically disappointing and it would not encourage such worthy inituitives for the future. but at least the quality of the audience compensated for this to an extent. the people who attended imo are among the best and most dedicated fishkeepers around and are the real future for irish fishkeeping.

edit and addition
the point i am stressing with the above last sentence is that there were no novices in attendence for whom the talks and presentation would have been of huge value. in fact all who attended would already have a fair bit of knowledge on the discussed subject matter .

Glad it went well Derek,despite the low attendance.
I'm afraid I'm doing long days at the moment,and couldn't make it. I would love to have been there,having seen Dr Burgess before,he's a great speaker,and a real gent.
Don't worry Derek,you'll get that pint at some stage!

one very interesting fact from dr burgess talk was that in clinical tests it was found that fish from asia had been exposed to most antibiotics to a very high level already before import probably rendering them useless for future use.
i think this is what he said but maybe platy damian or xeon can confirm or correct this.

hi ian
it is a pity you could not make it as it was very interesting and there were some interesting insights into the use of plant/herb extracts as medicines as we are sort of discussing on the organic threads.

Between me being quite ill recently and unable to rush about too much, and my OH attending her mother in hospital and not able to give me a lift, it was difficult to make the journey that far from home (even though I am in Cabinteely).

But the night sounded interesting.

I like all the ideas of looking at plants and ecosystems as a whole entity......especially in control of disease/illness. Thinking outside the box....I like.
