Good Morning From Sea-Tac

My whirlwind weekend is over and I am at the airport with the rest of the world's business travelers and some spring breakers. I am ready to head aboard USAirways Flight 78. See you soon!

Weird Seattle Weather

Streaks of blue in the sky, sun shining brightly and sheets of wind-lashed rain for my walk back to the hotel!

Lunch!

At Pyramid Brewing Company across from Safeco Field. A rather wild scene for lunchtime on Sunday.

Good Morning Seattle!

I am high above it all today here in Seattle. With a brisk breeze off Puget Sound, it feels far cooler than the 60 degrees the weatherman told me it would be.

On Old Friends, Being a Parent and the Space-Time Continuum


Today I saw a friend of mine - a great dad - who I have seen only a few times since college.  While talking about our children, the years melted away and we were 18 again.  It was a good conversation.  Full of memories and laughter, sadness and moments of quiet.  One we have to have again far sooner than we have had in the past.

Our children are our link to all that is good in our past and a guarantee that the future will be bright.

While James Earl Jones in "Field of Dreams" who said that it was baseball that reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again, he was wrong.

It is our children. They are our link to the past and future.


Post Storm Hangover

As seems to happen every time Philadelphia gets any kind of serious weather, the commute in today is miserable at best, with long skeins of traffic strung across the bridges connecting the city and South Jersey in a gassy tangle of red taillights.

Well This Isn't Good

Nothing like finding an active wasp nest in your electric meter box. Any ideas?
