tomorrow is my charity bike ride. I should be riding 104 miles tomorrow and 62 the next day but chances are that won’t happen. I’ll try to do the 60-something mile course at least tomorrow, but the most I have rode this year is 22 miles so I am not sure that I’ll make it… Hopefully the weather cooperates at least so I only have myself to battle with.

this was part of our clue wall today. Can’t give much info about it, but what I can say is that I walked out of this hotel pretty pissed, feeling like I wasted my entire day and a lot of time the past month. I will definitely be reconsidering where I lend my time and talents moving forward. At least the wall looked pretty.

as a meet and greet dinner before our big session tomorrow we arranged to have it at the Viking Cooking School where they teach you to cook, we prepare, and then we eat it. The chef is pretty famous (he has a TV show and cooks for celebs) and was cool to learn some good tricks from a real chef. The food was pretty good too. Unfortunately I took like 50 pics and they all sucked. Oh well.

another year, another birthday. Today I turned 31. Big thanks to my fantastic wife and wonderful daughter for the great evening, and awesome to have my great sister over to join in the festivities and talk to my loving parents on the phone as well. Life is good.

On another related note, I have to say thanks to all my friends who posted something on my Facebook wall. The multiple push notifications on my iPhone and getting to read all the comments during my walks between buildings at work (especially the witty ones – winner goes to Bryan for my favorite which had no words at all) was great and put a smile on my face. Thanks guys.

well, it is finally here – the 2011 football season. I don’t hold high hopes for the Miami Dolphins this year, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t be cheering for them week in and week out and be heartbroken when they lose and ecstatic when they win. But here’s to hoping that whatever happens this year, we have a better off season and draft in 2012 than we did this past one…

there surely isn’t a perfect company. And Coca-Cola is far from it. But it certainly isn’t a bad company either. And things like this – when they close the entire Six Flags park just for Coke employees – well that is cool. Thanks Coke. Beautiful day too. Now they just need to update that flags to the current Coke logo…
