Taken In Context


The above image, is Friendship Transcends Time

Today's song is Brooklyn Roads by Neil Diamond, released in 1968.

I had a great time in Chicago last week. I spent a lot of time with my granddaughter. I was able to meet several of my friends for a good amount of time. The years apart never matter between good friends, we always pick right up from where we left off the last time.

I want to mention a woman named, Millie, whom I met on the flight from San Diego to Chicago on my Leap Year Day flight. She told me she was born and grew up in Hawaii and for the last 18 years lives on the East Coast. We spoke constantly during the last two hours of that flight and she had a had a great philosophy on life. She never gives up on her goals. She learns from every life experience and isn't selfish in her knowledge. She knows how to find me on the Internet, but I have no idea if I will ever hear from her again. Sometimes life is like that.

On Thursday I spent almost the entire day at my Newbound, Inc. partner, Marc's house in Chicago. We covered business items and plans for our future software development efforts. We want to be part of the new iPhone application development program now that there is $100,000,000 in venture-capital funding for companies to develop iPhone applications.

On Friday, I spent three hours catching up with another long-term friend, Bob Koppel. Bob and his wife sold their business in September 2007 after many decades of work. Now he has a new broker business of helping other owners sell their businesses. I'm sure he will do well in that new direction.

On Saturday night, my wife's brother and his wife arrived at our house after a two month trip around the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California in their 2007 Chevy truck and 34-foot Montana 5th-wheel. We watched their slideshow of great pictures of their trip. I took pictures of their truck and 5th-wheel and present them below.

They are living the retired life in western Oregon and enjoying themselves. One day we may visit them on their multi-acre property. Until that time, we are happy to see them whenever they are in our neck of the woods.

I am a happy Californian but grateful that I grew up in the south side of Chicago. Those brutal winters make for tough and rugged mindsets. The weather was cold there last week and I recalled how much I dislike the cold as those winds blew across my face.

Now I'm back home and ready to enjoy the Spring that is already marking its appearance on this early March day of 75 degrees. I love it that we are now on Daylight Saving Time. All the recent rain is causing the flowers to bloom and the green plants are reaching towards the sky. I'm going to reach along with them.
