Journal Entry – 10.20.2016

It is 5:16 AM.

Today I have an all day travel industry event and must leave very early so my morning ‘me time’ is cut very short.  These things can be a bit draining but also great opportunities to do a lot of networking.  Needless to say I’m looking forward to tomorrow which is Friday.  Work has been much busier than usual because yet again I have to fill in for another territory.  I’ll be glad when we get someone permanently in place there.

New Year’s 2016

The last sunset of 2015

It is 4:14 AM on New Year’s Day 2016.

No, I haven’t stayed up all night partying; I was in bed by 7:45 PM on New Year’s Eve being completely exhausted by a poor nights sleep and a day spent at the gym, running errands and playing with the kids.  Now that I’m up so early I thought I’d get a few thoughts down on the year 2015.

Sunrise over the Bay


I just came back from the ride to the Portola Expedition site and wanted to write a little about this morning.  I woke up at 4:00 AM and saw the conditions were very good for a sunrise.  The sun wouldn’t rise until 6:55 AM so I played a little Warcraft, did the dishes and then got ready for the ride.
