Hello from sunny Wisconsin where I’m at a work management retreat thing. I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to do this, having just gotten back from London, but it’s kind of fun now I’m here. Lots of us lowly middle management types in seminars all day, but at least we’re at a rather nice resort, and I generally like the people I work with. Especially with friends from other offices it’s nice to get the chance to catch up.

I arrived quite late last night – my flight from Minneapolis to Chicago had been canceled so I had to do a lot of running around at the airport to get moved from Northwest to American Airlines, but got here safely in the end. We had a shuttle bus to drive us the hour and a half to the resort. Once we got out of Chicago it was really beautiful – lots of quaint towns, and for the last few miles after the sun went down the fields on either side of the road were lit up with flashing fireflies.

This morning I found out that I would have to give a part of a presentation at the big opening seminar, which seemed to go fairly well – people asked good questions once I was done, and said afterwards that they liked what I had to say.
