Flight Delayed - the Words You Love to Hear

I’m in the middle of an 18 day extended trip – Chicago, D.C., Toronto and Boston. I’m writing this from my seat – 10A on an Airbus 320 – sitting on the tarmac in D.C. – we’ve been delayed an hour by weather in Detroit. (Today’s flight is DC->Detroit->Toronto). They’re saying an hour… but we’ll know more … in an hour!

The Enola Gay

I had the privilege of seeing up close a number of amazing historical aircraft this week. I had an extra day in Washington DC – so I headed over to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (NASM)’s annex at Washington Dulles International Airport) – an excursion I had long wanted to take and anticipated very much.

Day 2 - Breakfast with Chickens

I’m sitting at E. Ontario St and N. St. Clair at an outside cafe… its 90 degrees at 8:00 pm… supposed to be 104 here in Chicago tomorrow… insane…

And so is the NOISE!

30 Pics in 30 Days

Tomorrow I leave for 18 days of travel to Chicago, Washington D.C, Toronto and Boston. I’ve decided to do another 30 pics in 30 days marathon. All the photos will be taken on my iPhone 4S with no editing…

Busy, busy, busy - but it's All Good

Yesterday was exhausting. (:)) Arranging and changing flights for this month has been kind of strange. But I think it’s almost done.

This month – Washington D.C. 2x, Chicago, Toronto and Boston… I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to pack… and hoping for hotels with laundry service! Teresa’s meeting up with me too… the joys of having older kids!

 

All in all – I’ll be teaching over 100 people how to use Drupal (9 days), Joomla (2 days) and visiting my mom in Toronto for 4 days (2nd anniversary of Dad’s death is 7/31).

Just Some Thoughts on Travels

Its been a fun year from the travel perspective… In the past 12 months, I’ve been in:

Drupalcon Denver 2012 Summary

What a great week at DrupalCon Denver!

Monday started with 34 students in our classroom learning the “Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Drupal” with OSTraining. Steve and I had a great time interacting with some very “keen” people. The fun came when several students came up to us during DrupalCon and thanked us for the excellent introduction. They had a firm foundation set on Monday so they could understand Tuesday through Friday!

Heading to DrupalCon Denver

I’m sitting at CVG (Cincinnati airport), waiting to board the plane for Denver… Really looking forward to DrupalCon again!
