I liked the 1st one, the moose on a white shirt, but then I changed to the khaki one at the bottom. What did you get?

Once we get our shirts, we should wear them in our "profile" pics. What do you think?

Hey Jared. You are in the 1000+ club on the leaderboard. Congratulations! Remind Brett he owes us a couple t-shirts!

Going to the Ojai Wine Festival

Posted on June 10, 2010 at 10:30am 0 Comments

My wife and I invited some friends over for Memorial Day. We had just moved, and they were instrumental in that move, so we wanted to hang out with them in a non-moving capacity. My wife suggested I pick up a local wine since I wouldn't be the only oenophile there. More specifically, she wanted me to find an Ojai wine. Busy as we were with the move, work, and a new baby, I didn't get to do much exploring. I tried to settle for a Santa Barbara wine, since she was trying to hint at keeping it…

Information Overload

Posted on June 30, 2009 at 1:52am 0 Comments

These last few months have been pretty exciting at work. The web site I am responsible for is undergoing a redesign, due to launch Wednesday, and I have been adding fun technological toys to a couple of the other sites I run. Google has launched a plethora of new web apps, and I have been playing with various Linux distros. The corporate IT department adopted Google Apps, so my departure from Microsoft is nearly complete. Lots of things happening in a short amount of time.



As I have… Continue

Father's Day recap

Posted on June 30, 2009 at 1:20am 0 Comments

Work has been pretty crazy lately, so I am behind on some stuff I wanted to blog about. In this case, Father's Day was over a week ago.



As I mentioned in my earlier post on Father's Day, this year marked my fourth as a father. My oldest is 3, and the baby is almost 8 months old. Both of my boys are happy and healthy, and my wife and I feel blessed to have them. They both have their moments, though.



Benjamin is recently potty-trained, which we are pretty stoked about. His… Continue

A Different View of History

I picked up a copy of the Reagan Diaries at Costco the other day. Reagan is on my list of the greatest U.S. Presidents, so I always enjoy learning more about him. Being able to read about his presidency through his own words has been a great experience.



The last couple of years have been full of insider history. Working at a law school, I have been able to listen to a number of Supreme Court Justices that have visited our campus. So far I have been able to listen to Justices Alito,… Continue

Father's Day

Posted on June 17, 2009 at 12:00am 0 Comments

This year marks my fourth Father's Day as a father. It's hard to believe. I have been thinking about the concept of Father's Day lately. I think it is a good thing to honor our parents. They do a lot for us, and this is a way to give a tiny bit back to them. Being on the receiving end of this day is still pretty new though. Not that I mind getting presents from my boys, because I do. I just feel weird still.



Father's Day has always been about my dad, and my grandpas. When Father's… Continue
