Aside from the usual meanings in common parlance, what writers want to to say by the expression "from time to time", mainly in financial contract wording? It doesn't seem to me that they want to convey the idea of "occasionally" and so forth. For instance, in contracts you can see phrases such as
The meeting will be adjourned from time to time and from place to place.
I think that if I can get the meaning for "from time to time", I'll tackle the "from place to place" wording.
