Stand on the Feet and Smile

June 30, 2008

After being here for 8 months I finally went to the Department of Motor Vehicles and got my Florida license.  It was hard for to part with the Texas license.  All I have ever known is Texas and the large amount of state pride that I carry.  It’s one of those things that everyone from […]

Rays Win!

June 18, 2008

Last night a group of my co-workers went to Tropicana Field to see the Rays play the Chicago Cubs during interleague play.  I have been to a few Rays game but have never seen the stadium this packed.  There were Cubs fans everywhere and the cheers for the Cubs were louder than for the Rays.  […]

Happy Birthday Dad!!

June 16, 2008

My dad’s actual birthday was yesterday, but I felt he deserved a post all to himself.  He is pretty lucky, his birthday usually falls around Father’s Day so he gets two rounds of presents.  What sucks about being so far away from the family is I miss out on events like this and all the […]

San Diego

June 15, 2008

After watching Tiger Woods sink a 10 foot put to send the US Open at Torrey Pines to an 18-hole playoff tomorrow I realized I had not updated the blog to reflect on my time in San Diego. Saturday Had some great sushi at Ra, it was so good that we went back there on […]


June 14, 2008

There are very few things in life that will get me out of bed early on a Saturday morning and golf is one of them.  What other sport do you spend so much money on to get so pissed? I hit the Preserve golf course early this morning with the Sandman, Matt F., and Gil […]

Happy 94th Birthday Grandma!!

June 13, 2008

Today my grandma celebrates her 94th year of life.  She has seen more in her lifetime than I could ever imagine.  Even at 94, she is keeps going and going just like the energizer rabbit, and is always more than willing to take a trip to Wal-Mart to spend 4 hours shopping only to leave […]

Tired of Flying and Just Plain Tired

June 12, 2008

I don’t know what I did to the airplane gods but they have not been kind to me my last few attempts to fly. This time I had to fly from San Diego to Atlanta then on to Sarasota. The flight to Atlanta I got stuck in the middle seat which I hate. I planned […]

Going Back to Cali…

June 6, 2008

I thought I would take a break from packing for San Diego and blog a little.  Last time I was in California was for a NIRI (National Investor Relations Institute) conference and this time is no different.  NIRI is a great organization and they always put on a tremendous conference.  I am looking forward to […]

Better Late than Never

June 1, 2008

I had every intention of making this post on Tuesday night after driving Felipe and Janish to the airport after a much needed fun filled weekend.  Unfortunately, Gevity had other plans for me that night.  I ended up going back to the office and staying until 11pm.  Needless to say the rest of the week […]
