getting all mushy...

I have a friend who has friend who knows all about mushrooms, someone who knows not just about cooking them but also about identifying and picking the wild ones. I must say that I am a little envious of this friend of a friends knowledge as I would love to know more about mushrooms, especially which ones are poisonous and which ones are good for use. Imagine my delight when after finding these ones today I chanced upon a talkback show about mushrooms on the Mornington Peninsula, they basically said that you shouldn't leave it to chance and that some training was required for their identification - mushroom school here I come, anyone want to join me?
