Me too, but it's optional.  I spend too much time with those
that don't that I've gotten used to it.

I'm setting up practice management software at PUC - the
optometry school/dept.  Mon-Fri is at the school with the staff
brought in from all the offices, next Mon-Wed is with them going
'live' in their various offices around Portland.

I'm staying at the Best Western just down the street from there.
I saw this place but didn't take the time to visit last time there.  This
sounds like a great option - at least for me

That's cool.  Of course, my offer to drive where-ever is still open.  Who
else will jump in here?
