The Fun Summer of 2010 – Overview

Things have been good and busy this year for me.  Overall, I can’t complain.  :)

Summer 2010 NewsSince June, I’ve been busy with a new corporate challenge, and it has been fun, exciting and already rewarding.

Also, this year, I’ve had the privilege of working with the good folks at Focus.com on a number of intriguing projects.  In many ways, Focus.com has become my favorite hub – surpassing even LinkedIn.

My family and I have done our customary trips to Shepherd Lake, and also our spiritual retreat to Stokes State Forest.  I have to write about those, but I haven’t had time as yet.  The last major event for the summer will be a Bike Riding expedition just before Labor Day.

And finally, I updated the Android OS on my Motorola Droid to version 2.2 (Froyo).  Quite a few good things to talk about there, but I’ll address all of these points in separate posts.

And I even have some major plans for inexpensive technology upgrades this year.  (Part of the plan is to finally ditch cable/FiOS TV.)

For so many reasons, 2010 has been very different to me than all the preceding years – but it’s all about learning the lessons that are presented to you, and taking advantages that come near you, and building valuable relationships along the way.

This is just the trailer.  Please stay tuned for full posts which should be headed your way over the next few weeks.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!  :)
