Jury summons has been postponed until mid-October. Hopefully the “really big project” at the day job will be done by then. 🤞

Dang it! A jury duty summons came in the mail today. The first one in over 10 years. My luck was bound to run out sooner or later.

I’ve repurposed my Scribbles site as a running devlog of learning (or relearning) a selected development language over the course of 100 days. The first language on deck will be Python. Wish me luck…

One team member out ill, the other on PTO, and the two offshore resources are off for a voting holiday. This leaves only me should the world start to crumble. Hoping it doesn’t…

Tinylytics uptime monitoring of my Micro.blog site has been reporting an awful lot of sporadic downtime lately. Anyone else experiencing the same?

A huge shoutout (and thanks) to @jean for putting together the April Photoblogging Challenge. It was a kick finding my own images, as well as seeing other’s interpretations for prompts. Just one more pin to go to have them all now.

Score! Jobby job office clutter put out by someone for the claiming. It’s mine now… I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while now.

A copy of Ayn Rand's novel 'The Fountainhead' is lying on a flat surface.

Two months after “the episode” I’ve managed to shed 17 pounds. A balance of meds, extreme dietary change and exercise made it possible. I’ve managed to develop a refined sugar aversion/phobia because of it too.

📷 Bonus Day 2: Unputdownable.

An open book displays the title page of 'The Grapes of Wrath' by John Steinbeck, published by The Viking Press.

One of my all-time favorite books. My family came to California in much the same way, so to me, it was completely relatable.

Today, I was a hero. I saved a four man-hour meeting with a single email that took less than five exchanges to resolve. Remember kids, a meeting is not always needed to get something done if you’re clear and concise with your questions up front.

📷 Bonus Day 1: Bubble.

A glass of amber beer with the logo 'BODEGA 41°' printed on it rests on a table with a matching coaster.

A serene beachscape is depicted with a rocky shoreline in the foreground, calm blue waters, and a mountainous landform on the horizon under a clear sky.
