Zehnder's of Frankenmuth
730 South Main Street, Frankenmuth, MI 48734
Wife and I visited a few friends right before Christmas 14' in Frankenmuth and all decided to hit Zehnders. Again, was not let down with their chicken dinners, didn't know that both families were married and now serve pretty much the same menu's. Would visit again next year.

Google still hasn't opened its new Inbox mail service for everyone, and it's not doing another invite free-for-all, but it is gifting all existing users 10 addition invites over the holidays. Time to start hitting up your friends.

If you're striving to make sense of Google's plans for its new north-of-Bayshore office space -- call it the Greenhouse Complex -- pay attention first to the company's DNA, its history and its competition.

Google Earth Pro, the premium version of Google's popular Google Earth service, is now free. Google sliced the price from $400 a year, so this is a pretty solid deal. If you like to make 3D measurements or create HD videos of virtual trips around the world, I'd jump on this. You can download the software key directly from Google and start an online global journey.

My family and I spent our holiday 14 in Ann Arbor visiting family and ate here. We had the Carnivores and Grilled Chicken and Brie, it was great and everyone was satisfied when we left. Would recommend it will probably visit again over the summer.

Google has become the third big technology company to be worth more than the entire Russian stock market — and Google itself isn’t even having a very good time of it.

Story
Introduction
Returned back to Mountain View California after spending more than two months in New Orleans at General Electric as a software architect in hopes that our family home in CA would have sold, but with no luck on final offers on our home, I returned back to my position at Google joining my old group starting December 2nd 2013.  I will be taking on the responsibility of furthering the Google Plus social network with my group peers.
Moved to New Orleans working for GE as a new software architect beginning after Labor Day, prior to there was living in Mountain View California the past eight and half years and employed with Google as a Programmer Developer working on Google's social network 'Google+' architectural platform since January 2012 - prior to that I was involved in Google email and search algorithm platform since early 2009.  
Prior to working for Google I worked for Consilium prior to them being bought out by Allied Materials Software Automation which then opened doors at Google Inc.  Before the move to California I worked for Netarx in Michigan as a Network Administrator for almost three years working with Sandy Kronenberg {Principal and Owner}, Netarx was recently purchased by Logicalis, Inc. in 2012 where they have undergone a restructure.

In February 2013 and after completing the last few of my certifications I was offered the opportunity to switch from the Google Plus social networking platform over to the Google Chrome OS {operating system}; I accepted.  I'm looking forward to working with the new team come March, either here Google Mountain View or Google Cambridge {though sad to leave my old team behind}.

I graduated from the University of Michigan and hold a Masters of Computer Science.
Programming Languages I use are:
Cold Fusion / C++ / C / Objective-C / Visual Basic / sql / Java / SCM / HTML4 & 5 / DART / UNIX / Linux / Solaris / JavaScript / XML / PHP / CSS / XSLT / Visual Studio.
I'm an expert with advanced certifications in all the programming languages above and use them either daily or weekly in my current role. And LOVIN IT!  

Current certifications held:
Advanced Programming for SAS 9
Macromedia MX Certification
C/C++ Advanced Certification
BCPIP Certification
CIW Certification
Microsoft Certification
Cisco Certified
SUN Certification
Sybase Certified
Oracle Certification


Currently married with three boys.

Just got back home from Castle Rock while camping there for the past several nights with family. Had a good time and would recommend going back for another mini vacation. Bit cold in the woods though.
