I totally agree with Mary Sue. And the one thing she didn't mention 
that I find I really like about these encounters, in addition to all 
the plant talk and viewing et cetera, is to find out how they think 
about a whole host of issues and ideas and daily life things that have 
nothing to do with plants, but are nevertheless a part of this 
wonderful life we each have. And, personally, I believe one can never 
have too many friends...
