I wish I had more time to explore the WW2 Museum today, but what I saw was fantastic.

Phil, what a great adventure. I loved the rain gear at Muzaki!! I'm sure that trip will rank right up there I'm the best memories category. 😉

Are you challenged at your current job? What if you has to bring your A game every day - would that be a good thing or bad?

In my latest LinkedIn post I talk about the excitement around building a team of A Players, but also the challenges.

In the end, you're crazy to settle for a B player, but almost everything in the current state of corporate America is conspiring against you. In some companies the idea of letting a position sit unfilled while a search for a change-maker continues is unacceptable.

Have you ever worked someplace where the culture is strong enough to hold off the B and C players?

I'd love to hear about the best places you've ever worked!

In case you missed my most ambitious post of the year - here it is...

Thank you to all who helped me.
Sometimes the smartest people keep a low profile. They are too busy being awesome to bet at events or on Twitter. I polled the smartest and most connected people I know to find the unsung heroes of the Triangle. Here's the list.

The people at the front desk were super helpful and knowledgeable. The place itself was in pretty good condition. Overall, I would say it's above-average for the LaQuinta brand and a safe and comfortable place to stay.

The family that runs this place is fantastic. If you're looking for a great place to kick-back and have a sno-ball or ice cream and your kids can play cornhole or air hockey this is the place for you. The ice cream is Hershey, while not the best in the world, is good. What makes this place stand above other places like it are the guys in the shack, super friendly and personable. Try this place and you'll be back.

We booked the only King suite in the whole place when we went to stay. It was a great choice. The 2 room suite let us close the door while our son slept on the fairly uncomfortable pull-out sofa in the main room. The main bed was comfortable and the room was big and well appointed. The main area has a small kitchette that includes a refrigerator and microwave. The suites are on the ends of the building so we had a great view of the beach and the pool. Since it was February when we stayed, we didn't try the outdoor pool. but the indoor pool was ok and also has a hot tub next to it. The only surprise was that the continental breakfast was $13/person. I thought was a little high, but there are so many other choices for breakfast nearby it's fine.

I'm a big fan of Bruegger's in general, so this wasn't ever going to be one star, but the people behind the counter at this location were much better than you normally encounter. It was about 9:15 on a Saturday morning and the workers were smiling, friendly and helpful. The bacon, egg and cheese on an onion bagel was heavenly.

My family choose this place for a Saturday breakfast based on the generally good reviews from Yelp. We didn't find any problems that others have mentioned. We arrived about 8:30 for breakfast on a late February morning. The restaurant was about 85% full. We were seated very quickly and the waitress was pleasant and attentive. We ordered some eggs, waffles and an omelette. All of them came out quickly and were cooked as expected. I would absolutely stop in here again when I'm in the area.

We planned a weekday trip to the aquarium during February to avoid the summer crowds. Overall we were very pleased with what they had to offer. Inside they do a real nice job of finding the middle ground between good-for-kids and good-for-adults. I loved that they had real live people at some of the exhibits to talk with. Although the cold, blustery weather kept us from staying outside too long, the outdoor exploration area also looked like it would be a lot of fun in warmer weather.
