20080128 – Family over

Well boxes are almost gone, one room left to setup but that will wait a week or two as Zach’s birthday is Friday and we are getting together Sunday at the local Red Robin.
I have a new development class computer that I am setting up. Good stuff for my professional blog!
Jimmy and Dad came over for breakfast that I and Ann cooked (didn’t have camera out – dooh)
Mmmm good. We had a good breakfast, chat and we laughed a bunch.
Dad left before I came to my photo senses ūüôā
Anna’s Parents and brother David and family came by for a impromptu visit and we had a grand time looking at photos over the past 26 years+.
We found the tub of toys from when Zach and Matt where little and Lilly and the big kids had fun. It was like Christmas again!
Interviews are in process and in the hunt for contracts as well.
Jamie sent me the Pandora site in my list Рvery cool, now it is my music box
Mike Francis sent me the NotchUp site and looks very promising – links to LinkIn, so very handy and will add to my list!
Best Thoughts to you all!

Phone was installed right as we moved in, but DSL order was "lost" and was finially up and running Saturday!!
I have been using cough* "free wireless" cough… so I was behind on my online items, needed the time to unpack anyway

New Beginings 2008


I have updated my photo albums, reordered them and added some more books to the list.


I have added a music list and a video’s list.


I am going to keep my entries short so that the "5" don’t scroll many pages


I am currently working on new contracts for Grigsby Consulting LLC for me to work under.


I am keeping a google blog for my professional ramblings.


Anna is still at Personix and has the benifits covered, so it is my job to get the steaks ūüôā


Hope all is well with you and your families!
