I'm off tomorrow for our conference in Florence. This is going to be the most extraodinary conference I have ever attended. It starts at 5.30pm on Friday (who's ever heard of a conference starting at 5.30pm?) with various Italian politicians and senior financial specialists talking about transparency in financial markets. Then there are drinks and dinner with a Tuscan wine producer discussing transparency in wine. On Saturday morning, there's a presentation about our company and fund management in Italy in general, followed by a private tour of the Palazzo Vecchio. Later in the afternoon we will have a piano recital and then a fabulous dinner with a talk about transparency in art given by the Minister of Culture. The whole thing winds up on Sunday morning with a private tour of the Uffizi. See you on Monday, apart from those attending our bloggers' lunch today.

Thank you. It's a shame that you and Welshcakes can't come to lunch today. We'll have to find a suitable brandy/limoncello to toast your health.
