Sad day. I wish +Vic Gundotra the best, and thank you for everything.
 
And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....
+Vic Gundotra

Blake Griffin is pretty awesome here. Lol.
 
Blake Griffin SOAKS a fan, but acts like he was throwing his hands up over a call!
(1) Do you think he did it on purpose?
(2) Would you trade places with this GSW's fan?

TAG your friends that need a good laugh!

Good dive bar but the bartender can be a bit slow, at least the times I've gone. One really has his blinders on and doesn't look around for those seated at the bar to get a sign for another drink. Serves one or two and starts talking away instead of looking left or right. Other than that, it is what it is and the beer is cheap. Good place to drink and hop back back on the Metro Red Line.

Excellent Thai food here. This is definitely my Thai go-to spot in the valley and everyone from the server to the cook are fantastic. I'm a big fan of their noodle dishes.

I haven't been here for years, not since I found out about Costco's great liquor selection and sizes. The prices are ok, but they offer a great selection and very knowledgable. Only thing that keeps me going back is how cold they can seem when paying for things. It would be nice to feel like they appreciate your patronage. Heck, even maybe a smile would be nice.

I love Yamo!! I've waiting an hour for it to open so I can get one last bite before leaving the city. It's a hole in the wall, but who cares? The food is so good and cheap.

The Renovations Are Great!! Its a classic park with a new feel. The food courts and stands have been upgraded and given a bigger selection of items to choose from. Its also great to see stand alone food and beer kiosks to keep the lines at a minimum. People complain about parking but what do you expect when you have 40,000 people leaving at once? The Metro shuttle service is a great idea but takes about an hour from Union Station to the park. All in all, its a great experience.

I stay at the Guerneville Lodge just about every time I visit Guerneville. Its lawn and campground areas are very nice, the bathrooms are pretty clean for the most part. I will say they went through a fire this past year and it's still under construction. They can be a bit hard to find at times, but do have a full-time groundskeeper on hand who is extremely accommodating (Ronnie). The property has no pool, but does have a dock on the river (excellent!), a tetherball court, volleyball net, teeter-totter and one big main lawn to play whatever you wish. This past weekend a soccer game broke out amongst guests (hipsters, college crowd, gays, families). Great place for camping.

Great place to order a pizza from. They're quick and fast, and far better than the bigger chains. You won't go wrong here if you're looking for a quick pizza. This place is our local "go-to".
