- Feb 3, 2006Hi all,
In response to the conference in Boston, I've been there a few times and it's a great place to visit. It's definitely a "walking city" though. The streets are narrow and lots of traffic, especially that time of year. Also lots of great restaurants and plenty of shopping. Anyone have any questions, I'll try to answer them.

Forwarding the below from Cyndi Howell... please mark your Calendars now for an exciting event. and remember to keep your queries and responses coming.... who knows... a "Brick-Wall" can be tumbling just around the corner. Have a good weekend! Jewelle
