Chef Bill surprised us the other day with fresh strawberry shortcake with crushed mint and basil up on the deck.   It was a pleasant diversion in the afternoon.

This is an amazing photo taken by a friend.
 
Exploring something a little different for me.  When you look at it large you can see all the falling snowflakes.

One of risks my commute faces is fire on the hill that I drive over every day.   Yesterday I had a front row seat to a small fire on the north side of Topenga Canyon.   Fortunately for me I was stopped just before the upper fire brigade.  When I found out that it would be a three hour delay, I was able to turn around and take the long way home.   The people between the lower and upper brigade were there for the whole duration.

Here are some pictures and videos I took before I left.

Story
Introduction
Ever since I was young, I have always just understood computers. I remember sneaking out of my dorm room at Alpine Springs and breaking into the admin building just to get more programming time on the computers. I have always had a drive to learn every language and system I could get my hands on but my love has always been C and Unix.

This passion for computers and programming finally led me to come work for Google. Finally a company that has both a technical wonderland that tries to make the world a better place.

I found a wonderful woman who broke into my computer nerd shell and together we have the most beautiful and smart daughter. I get to experience the world all over again through her eyes.
