Greetings from Upstate New York

I am in Rochester, NY right now - my first ever business trip, training for my new position as a Payroll Specialist at Paychex, which is headquartered here.

I've only been here for 3 days now. I haven't done much in the way of sightseeing, but we drive through a really pretty town everyday on the way to work - Pittsford, NY. I want to stop and take pictures of this's just so quaint and cute.

Anyway, several of us from this Payroll Specialist class are going to Niagara Falls this weekend. So I'll have a report and photos from there at some point.

I also hope to have some restaurant reviews. We are going to Comix Cafe tonight, which is a comedy club/restaurant. I'm skeptical about the quality of the food, but we shall see. I've been told to try Dinosaur Barbecue while I'm here, which is pretty well-renowned nationally, but a group from my class went there a couple nights ago and walked away disappointed. And I generally don't crave barbecue.

Not much else to say now, other than we are staying at Residence Inn, and I like it a lot. I have a room all to myself, and it's very spacious and clean, with a fireplace (and it's cold enough here to use it, but I'm not), a king size bed, a full kitchen...I'm very cozy here. Still, there's no place like home.

More to come...
