Welcome to my weekly blog update for April 3, 2016!
Holy smokes. I didn’t mean to take such a long break! The last time I posted was on February 21 but I have read quite a bit since then. I’m so brain-dead by the time I get home from work, I only want to veg out, which means either reading or tv. No staring at the computer and writing my own words. I went to San Francisco for a meeting one weekend in March. Usually I’m so busy at these things that I don’t have time to explore. This time I flew across the country and stayed away for 3 days for a 5-hour meeting. Lots of time to play, even factoring in the two days of travel! I’ve visited the city before but my co-worker hadn’t so we took a cruise of the bay and a double-decker bus tour of the downtown area. It was a nice trip!
