Thank you to everyone at PT

I am very fortunate to enjoy the privilege of working with a tremendous group of people at Principled Technologies.  I truly believe we have an incredible team, and earlier tonight we gathered to enjoy a dinner together and celebrate the work we've done in 2016.

I am also lucky to have the best business partner a person could have, Bill Catchings.

Thank you, all, for making PT a great company and a great place to work.

It's Bad Santa time again

Yup, the Christmas season is upon us, so of course I had to hold my annual viewing of this holiday classic.  So you can enjoy it, too, here's just one of my favorite scenes.

Many years of therapy.

John Glenn, R.I.P.

From when as a kid I read about John Glenn orbiting the Earth, I've wanted to do that, to see the whole planet from space.  I imagined what it must have been like to be the first to have that view.

Then, at 77 years old, he became the oldest human to go into space.

He accomplished a great deal more in his life, but those two achievements will, for me, always shine brightly.  

Glenn is now dead, but what he accomplished lives on in our memories.

Well, that's something good

Happy political news has been in scarce supply lately, so for those who don't follow North Carolina politics I am pleased to report that our reprehensible Governor, Pat McCrory, has finally conceded that he indeed lost the race he actually lost on election day.  The challenger, Roy Cooper, is now our Governor-elect.

This news is important not only because McCrory was a horrible Governor in general, but also because he was the public face of our terrible HB2 bill, about which many companies have rightly blasted North Carolina.

I'm not very optimistic that Cooper will be able to get our Republican-dominated legislature to repeal this heinous piece of legislation, but I will cling to the hope that the legislators will find the loss of revenue and public shaming enough reason to repeal the bill--and maybe use McCrory as their scapegoat on the way out.

Regardless, it's great to see McCrory leaving.

A valid question from Elvis Costello

I think it's worth considering, particularly these days.

I'm not saying this is enough in these dark days of Trump's America, but I do think it's something important.

Let's all be the strong, and let's all work to deserve being the trusted.

What to watch on December 30

The return of Ronda Rousey, of course.

I'll be watching.

Home and exhausted

Neither less than four hours of sleep nor a snowstorm at O'Hare kept Kyle and me from making it home, so I'm happy to be back--and exhausted.

I'm going to do the minimum I must and then crash.  Sleep sounds so very good right now.
