Alex got an electric guitar last fall, and has been taking lessons. He had his first public performance this morning at his elementary school.
The Sierra’s are getting hammered… I’m looking forward to some amazing skiing in the next few weeks. WOW…. An absolutely epic storm is about to hammer the region today through Sunday night, and after a break Monday… more heavy snow is expected Tuesday. If you have been wanting to experience the deepest powder around, Tahoe [...]
This is a wonderful happy ending for a family here in the Sacramento area. A father and three children who vanished on a Christmas tree-cutting trip in the Northern California mountains were found alive Wednesday after huddling in a culvert for warmth during three days of heavy snow. “Our hearts are all full right now,” [...]
Michele celebrated the 20th anniversary of her 21st birthday a few days ago. She’s just as beautiful as the first day we met! More pics at my .Mac and Picasa galleries. iPhone users, check out the Picasa link, Google has optimized Picasa for the iPhone!
Yesterday was about food… today I sampled the MusÃ©e d’Orsay, following another productive days with at the 4D office here. The MusÃ©e d’Orsay is one of the premier museums in Paris, and is best known for its collection of art from the Impressions period. Monet, Renoir, CÃ©zanne, Degas, Rodin, and more. I knew it would [...]
Wednesday was about food. First, I ended up eating breakfast in the hotel breakfast room. And much to my surprise, I found not only the usual Paris choices of croissant, rolls, juice, coffee — they have fruit and EGGS and SAUSAGE and BACON! Buffet style, all you can eat! For lunch, my French coworkers took [...]
Here are some pictures from my visit to the Eiffel Tower. You can click on the images for a larger, higher quality version (unlike a few days ago though they aren’t enormous). The first three shots are taken from the Parc du Champ de Mars: Next is an image from the first level. By this [...]
Just a quick post for now on my third day in Paris (Tuesday 7/18). I’ll try to post more later, including pics. I decided Monday night to start my day Tuesday by eating petit dÃ©jeuner in my hotel room using room service. Good choice, the breakfast arrived at the requested time, and included two croissants, [...]
Started the day with a phone call from home from Michele and Alex. The time difference is nine hours, so we’ve arranged for them to call me at Alex’s bedtime, which is the time I need to wakeup. We use Vonage phone service, and they’ve just made calls from the US to France free, so [...]
No jet lag… but I woke up at 3:30 AM an can’t get back to sleep. So I will use this time to collect my thoughts and share the start of my Paris adventure. I’m in Paris for 8 days… for a week of working with the good folks at 4D Inc. Yeah, it’s a [...]
We are sometimes amused by the drama here in Northern California when a thunderstorm blows through, since even the most severe weather we’ve seen here is mild compared to what we’ve experienced in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. My wife Michele is from Wynne, Arkansas, which experienced a major tornado a few days ago. Fortunately her [...]
Last week I finally gave in and purchased a new pair of casual shoes. Not just a new pair, but a new style. For the past decade (or longer, probably more like 15 years) I’ve been wearing Sperry Topsiders. The most recent pair I’ve had for at least three years… I can’t remember when i [...]
