The Seminar Was So Worth the Trip! - 05:23 PM
On the morning of this seminar, last Thursday, I overslept. Quickly, I jumped into the shower, made myself a cup of coffee to go and jumped into my car and got going. It was 7:20am.

I have driven to New Haven, Ct, many times in the last few years, so, I was familiar with that route. New Haven is about halfway for me, to travel to Stamford, Ct. I was amazed at (9 comments)
