Greetings from Grand Rapids Michigan

Where it's just coming up to 10:30 a.m. and we're preparing for our next appointment. It's a 15 minute drive from the hotel.

We'll meet the client, take him to lunch then drive 5 hours south into Ohio for tomorrow's appointment.

It's a nice rental car. Toyota Camry with all the bells and whistles. Should be good driving that 500 to 600 miles over the next couple of days!

It's a glorious day here. Sunny and pleasantly warm. The sunrise was spectacular and since I'm in a room on the 7th floor facing due east, I managed to get a few good shots which I'll post when I next get time.

I've actually been upgraded - at no extra cost - to the Riverside Suite which consists of two rooms - a "lounge" with a kitchen area and dining table and a 42" Samsung TV and DVD player. In the bedroom there's another 42" telly and by the (huge) bed is an iPod dock where I can recharge the iPhone and listen to my tunes as I do this.

Pity it's only for one night!

I'll post the pics later - when I've downloaded them from the Ixus but I've been busy enjoying the decadence of this fantastic room and so haven't had a chance to sort them out!

Right - time to pack away the laptop, head downstairs to check out and on to the next stop. It's all leading toward coming home Friday night - thats the thought to keep in your head on trips like this!

See yer later!
