Unplug from the news

Dropping off a cornice at Expert\'s Return

I’ve been glued to the news this week and filled up on too much doom and gloom. There are plenty of positive things to focus on. Even if this is the start of a recession, focusing on a tanking stock market doesn’t do any good as a developer. For you stock traders, yeah, you’re boned. But for software developers, there’s much to build.

Focus on what you’re good at. Make yourself better. Enjoy life.

It’s time to switch back to loving this perfect fall weather and looking forward to a killer ski season.

Spring Mountain – first night

Spring Mountain Season Pass

Last night Gala and I hit the slopes for the first time this season. There’s a tiny hill about 40 minutes from here. It’s a little learning hill with plenty of fun to be had. Being raised on Alpine in the Sierras in California spoiled me, but I love anything frozen. Making turns on anything slick is a favorite past-time.

Look for the Rail Jam on the 27th and Big Air Competition on February 10th. I’m not so keen on rails (video is NOT me) but count me in for the 10th.

(special thanks to Riva and Alex – it’s going to be a wonderful winter season!)
