RE: Ice Cream
I know where Grand Rapids is, but not Allegan. I was a yooper for a long time until I changed jobs.

How about Grand Rapids? My parents live not far from Grand Rapids....little town called Allegan. Sure they are having a difficult time with all this snow.

OK I am emailing elder brother now, after 10 years of him living in the US to say, "where do you live - exactly mate?"

Its a small world. He works a Schenck Pegasus, or vice versa, calibrating engine performance under certain parameters - did some work for Al Unser Jnr and his racing car some years ago. He is a BSc, MSc, C.Eng, MIEE - my middle brother and I opted for the MBA route - three brothers all with Masters degrees.

Well done and best of luck - are you doing Business Admin? I am sure the spur in each of us was not be outdone by the others - so we all worked insane hours to get them.

I worked with a bloke in Texas who got his from Harvard, and was taught Strategic Management by Professor Michael Porter, (can you imagine??)
