I came here with a relatively clear diary and an ambition of visiting the show for a few hours every day and going to a variety of cocktail parties and dinners in the evenings. But it hasn't worked out that way - it never does! This year my schedule has filled up even more quickly than it has in the past, and virtually all of my time is spent in meetings at our Huston downtown headquarters and at breakfasts, lunches and dinners with clients and contacts. (note to self - must start the diet and go to the gym when home next week!).
