Today I turn 40.  You know what they say: "Better a milestone than a gravestone."

Sorry I haven't been there. I really enjoyed it, I've just been extremely busy since school started up again.  Hopefully come late April I'll be able to make the drive.

Best chat I've had was a friend sitting me down a few years ago and asking: "Why aren't you doing something with your life?"  That was rather motivating and made me realize that I was building up skills but not necessarily using them for meaningful projects.  We build up habits and patterns that aren't helpful or that fail to impact the world in a useful manner. 

So question the general question I put to you is: "Where am I sucking and how can I improve?" :-)

I'm sucking at making vast amounts of money for doing nothing. But I refuse to be a hedge fund manager, so my friends who want to give me advice are just going to have to deal with it.

Last week some folks wanted to meet this Sunday, November 24.  I'll be at Zoka at 10 am if anyone wants to show up. 

We'll be skipping Thanksgiving weekend since folks have families or something vaguely similar.

Next Sunday, November 10th is Project Horseshoe so neither Pat nor I will be able to make it to the meetup.  I was thinking of postponing till November 17th.  Does that work for everyone?
