Breakfast in Stockbridge

Being a night owl I have never really understood the attraction of breakfast meetings. Was up at 6 in order to pack my bag for the week and be in Stockbridge for 7:30 for a meeting with local business people.

Seemed to go OK but was struck by how many people were offering services rather than products (Eddie - who invited me being one of the exceptions). Chatting afterwards one chap charmingly commented that he was an engineer by profession but now occasionally worried about whether he qualified to be on the "third ship" in Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy.
