June 17th – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

I have chosen to basically pretend like my unannounced absence never happened, instead of typing out a long tome of an explanation.

My California Job Search Trip Continued

Yesterday I posted some updates and pictures from my recent trip to California. As my wife told me immediately preceding my departure for California wine country, this trip was not a vacation.
