Greetings from San Francisco, California!

Two weeks ago, I was in San Francisco for a Department of Labor conference.  It was interesting to go from 100 degrees and 1,000 percent humidity to 55 and sweater weather.  I had a free day and Brian did up a walking tour for me.  I added on, so it ended up being about a 12-mile walk in all.

Odds and End – December 2015

Not much going on that’s post-worthy.  Busy at work, but planning to cut the cord and take almost two whole weeks off at the end of the month.

Here’s the 2015 Christmas Tree.  This is a new one – 12 feet tall but very narrow and tapered.  This tree was a breeze to put up; it’s only five sections and each section plugs into the center pole, so no extension cords.  And no assembly-wiring diagrams that look like one needs a degree in Trigo-Calculary to figure out.

I saw this a few days ago on my way back to my office.  At least I have options when my current career path peters out…
