This is such a fabulous personal article by Scott Weiss!  My husband really enjoyed his years at IronPort (he left a few months before Cisco came in and took over).  After IronPort, he spent many years as a consultant and architect for tech start ups.  Taking an idea and making it a reality takes a LOT of hard work!  It can take a toll on family life for sure.  Scott does a great job explaining the difference between espousing work/life balance and actually living it.  Well worth your time to read :-)

Boozy Bling. The answer to finding your drink when there is no stem for the wine charm. These cute charms are made by a high school friend of mine. Check out her site! :-)

I find myself using that little microphone a LOT.  I used to think it was just gimmicky fun, but it has really become an essential part of my day to day dealings.  You go Google! :)

My second born was a spitter. We starting calling him Spitty Vann (Giovanni). He spit so much, we kept adding on until he became Spitty Von Spitenstein McSpitten.

Let's just say that baby number 7 is leaving Spitty Von Spitenstein McSpitten in the dust! Here is a preview of his talent...
When you have kids, spit happens.

A similar incident happened in Oakland a few weeks back. A group of protesters stopped a Google bus, slashed all the tires and forced their way onto the bus wielding knives and shouting at the frightened employees :-(
A bunch of protesters stopped 2 Google buses at Hyde and Market in San Francisco. They were playing drums, demanding something that I couldn't understand, and showing profane signs. I think there were almost as many people with professional looking cameras as there were actual protestors.

My baby made it home safe and sound from Italy! :-) Mommy happy dance time. He had a blast, but he is happy to be home and sleeping.
