So sad I didn't find out about the Wilco show at Edgefield until this morning. Already WAY sold out. Damn, I say damn!

Northwest USA Courses  - 
 
Finally have a little bit of time carved out to get to the first of these photo sets. I have 4 to catch up on, so let's make that 3 before I do the dishes and put away some laundry.

The West 9 at Riverbend DGC, Milo McIver Oregon State Park, Estacada, Oregon.

If I remember correctly, I didn't do the best job getting my tee pad POV shots on all 9 holes, but I think I managed to grab 6 or 7 of them.

wow. Thanks gentlemen, and I wasn't very pleased with these. Riverbend can be a difficult spot for photography when it's sunny due to the dense canopy in some areas. I tinkered with them slightly to bring out some of the detail and tamp down some over exposure.

Tournaments  - 
 
It's here! Inaugural action of what will (hopefully) one day be called the St. Jude's Classic. The course looks stunning and exciting.

I played a tournament this year on an old 9 hole ball golf course. Wind was terrible but the course was excellent.

Damned funny, but not for the light of heart. Or most parents I know, I'm amazed they let it air as it was. Because we all know SNL isn't "live" anymore, recorded live yes, but... there's always time to pull the plug on a show. Still prototypical Louie.

Equipment  - 
 
This is nice. I don't normally throw with a bag, and if I did, I'd probably due to financial situations go with one of those modded bags from Academy, but this is NICE.

Tre amazing. Much support to your efforts Chris.
Chris Jenkins originally shared to Humans are awesome.:
 
In 1994, I caught 14 charges. Four of them were felonies.

This isn't a secret, so I don't try to make it one. Anyone with sufficient motivation can run a background check on me and see that in my late teens to early twenties, I took the hard way figuring out what the world is all about. 

Technology saved me.

In my single longest stretch of incarceration (72 days, if I recall correctly), I figured out that this was not a lifestyle that suited me. But, being from a family that didn't particularly have a lot to offer in the way of resources, I bounced aimlessly around between low paying jobs fighting the temptation to re-offend. When you're $500 short on the rent and know you can make that quick flipping some weight, you're faced with some hard decisions. 

Around 24 I lucked into some MCSE training, and it set me on a path that lead me to here: a happily married father of two upper middle class professional nerd, enjoying a lifestyle I never dreamed I would have, and quite frankly, often feel I don't deserve. 

My end game has always been to give back, and when I hit 50, I've promised to myself I will leave private industry for public service. I want to found a 501c3 dedicated to helping disadvantaged kids understand what opportunities are out there, and specifically in technology. If I had better understood when I was 17 what I was capable of, I wouldn't have taken the road that I did. 

That's long term; this is short term: I'm writing a book about how technology can be a channel for current and ex-cons to get their lives on track, reduce recividism, and take them from the place they came from to the place I am. In my research, I've seen quite a few examples of that. People who have done far more time than me have gone on to accomplish far greater things than me. Frederick Hutson is one such example:

http://money.cnn.com/2014/09/17/smallbusiness/pigeonly-prison-startup/

I'm looking for ex-cons in tech who are willing to share their story as an inspiration to others to include in the book. I'd like to send you an email questionnaire, and then if possible, follow up with a 30 minute or so Hangout session. 

If you (or someone you know) is a good example of this, will you leave a comment, or tag them in? And if you think you may have some folks in your circles who qualify, will you share? Please direct them to comment here so I see it. 

Also, +Yonatan Zunger, if you know of any Googlers who fit the bill, that would be amazing. Working at your company is often thought of as one of the pinnacles of achievement, so an ex-con Googler would really inspire. 

Thanks, everyone.

In case anyone might have forgotten the sheer improvisational brilliance of Jaime Foxx, man always has his game packed and ready to go. Just roping walkoffs like it's another day at the office. Such an amazing performer.

Just sayin' if you have a little cheddar to spare this is a GREAT way to spend it. Oh and the show BOX OF CHOCOLATES that streams at 10 AM on Tuesdays isn't a wasted hour.
