Philosophy 101 - [1:51 PM]

While I was out tearing up my yard last week I did a whole lot of thinking. About family, friends, and work. I enjoyed the time off, it was very relaxing even though I worked my butt off.

All that thinking lead me to re-realize that Americans do not know how to live. By and large we work our butts off, for what, a bigger house or car? That's just a crappy way to live. I'm as guilty as everyone else. We should take more time off, play more golf (or in my case softball) or just hang out and relax while reading a book. Yes, that's what I want.

The zillion dollar question is "How do you get there?" That's probably the wrong question.

When I got back to work a friend had sent an e-mail that touched on all the things I'd been thinking about. Here's the text of that e-mail.

Weird how that happened, isn't it?

CLR Must Read - [9:56 AM]

Chris Brumme: "For managed developers, the CLR is the computer and it better work consistently regardless of the underlying machine." - Bravo! Take a gander if you're writing managed code today. Chris, ever think about writing a book?

Congratulations UCLA Softball! - [3:20 PM]

I was able to sit down and watch the Women's College World Series UCLA vs. Texas game on Sunday afternoon. Since the College World Series is a double elimination tournament UCLA had to beat Texas twice to move into the title game on Monday. I was only able to watch the first game and it was absolutely brilliant. These ladies can play!

In the end it looks like it was a Cal/UCLA championship game, with UCLA the ultimate victor. Apparently the Pac-10 rules the softball world, maybe my oldest daughter should consider one of those schools.

Back in the saddle - [9:51 AM]

Wow, it feels like I've been gone for a month, not just a week. I took the week off to do some stuff around the house. I had a "small" list of things to do and of those things only item #1 was completed. I installed a new sprinkler system.

In that time we also managed to travel to Tracy for the Northern California 12's Regional Volleyball Tournament. Our girls did an outstanding job and finished third. The team that won the tournament beat our girls 25-23, and 26-24 to advance to the title game (rally scoring was used which means every serve is a point and you play to 25.) We're all very proud of our team. A break at the right time could've sent them to the winners circle!

Last Saturday, May 24, I played in the second tournament of the CCASA Softball Series with our tournament team Flatliners. We managed to hang around all day, finishing with a record of 4-2, taking third place. What's with finishing third? I had a great time but now I know my tournament legs aren't there yet. By the fourth game my legs were shot, especially the hamstring I injured last fall. I need to start jogging again.

Tomorrow I leave for Seattle, Redmond actually, for two days of training. Friday evening I have the unique opportunity to play softball with a good friend and fellow Visioite. I'll also be staying all weekend to play in a softball tournament on Sunday. It's going to be a very interesting week. Geek speak followed by Softball. Woo-Hoo!

I guess I'd better get back at it. Time to put my fully rested brain back to work.
