Finally Home...

Ah.... I made it home. Finally! Time to get some sleep... :-)

The last month and a half was quite intense. Here's a quick recap of the itinerary:

  1. Las Vegas (tour guide for relatives)
  2. Los Angeles (speaking at a the Southern California Tech Summit conference)
  3. Las Vegas again (speaking at the MEDC 2005 conference)
  4. Austria (might as well go home since I have to go to Europe anyway... and do some business while we are there).
  5. Amsterdam (speaking at the SDC 2005 conference)
  6. Austria (a bit more business)
  7. Houston (spending 3 days in the office... otherwise people think I dropped dead...)
  8. Las Vegas (speaking at the Advisor DevCon conference)
  9. Houston (for less than 12 hours... had some quick business meetings to attend)
  10. New York City (speaking at the CircMan Show and conference)
  11. Montreal (speaking at the DevTeach conference)
  12. Finally, back to Houston

And all of this in just over 5 weeks. And I even cancelled my trip to TechEd in Orlando at the last minute (this is what gave me my 3 days in the office). I almost regret that in a way. After all, there is this awesome Sushi restaurant I known there (Amura). And I am not even sure I will get to Orlando again this year. Oh well. I'll get over it. ;-)

All these trips were fun, but to be honest, I was ready to get back. People often think that travel is just fun. This is not true. It is fun to be at different places, but it is not fun to spend hour after hour in air planes. It also isn't so much fun to go to all these exciting places and then not have time to do anything but business. I always try to set aside a little bit of time for myself, but more often than not, a nice dinner is all I have time for, and often, that nice dinner is just room service. (The answer to "How was Vegas?" would be something like "the Club Sandwiches there are just a little dryer than in New York"). Especially when the schedule is this busy, I am really looking forward to coming home. Working in the office almost seems like a vacation then.

What is next? I am not sure to be honest. Looks like I will have a month in the office. A trip to Seattle perhaps within the next 4 weeks. Looks like Oregon will be mixed in there as well. Perhaps we could even break away for a long weekend to go on a real vacation (haven't done that in a long time...). But overall, not that much is happening in July. Except maybe a trip to Europe. We'll see...

Thank you for your great efforts to educate parents and make me somehow part of it. I incorporated my work with fellow DC’s… and it was a great success.I hosted a Healthy. Home Party and

it went great. With the left over samples and brochures, I made little packages to give away to parents that could not assist. Sorry, no pictures. I was so excited, I forgot to take

any with my friends.

The article is about, The organizing of information can be seen since the time humans began to write. Prior to that, history was passed down through song and word. Be it with religion, books and spoken word, science, through journals and studies, or in many other ways, organizing not only is history, but also helps communicate history.have a nice day.

I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this article. I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to start my own BlogEngine blog now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a fine example of it.
