EMC World 2014 Personal Reflection

This week I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know some of the hardest working guys on the vCloud Air operations team.  In the course of the conversations and getting to know them beyond the scope of VMware and what they do, something came out that I always find interesting.  Something I have learned in recent years is ...

Why Move To Tennessee?

Many people by now have heard that Julie and I were looking at land in Greenville, TN to start a new home build.  After a nearly combined 65 years in New Hampshire, we decided that we’ve pretty much had enough of the winters here.  That happens to most people at some point that they decide it is time to move ...

The “Haves” and The “Have Nots”

Recently I was told by someone who while they considered themselves as one of the “Have Nots”, I was living the good life as one of the “Haves”.  I was up part of the night thinking about this and it did not make sense to me.  We are all faced with life decisions, learning opportunities, and things that shape us. ...

Town Of Lyndeborough Great Chief Of Police Debate

NH-LyndeboroughPD

For many that are not aware there has been a situation in my little Town of Lyndeborough.  For a couple of years now we’ve actually had no Chief of Police.  This is a long story that I do not want or intent to go into, but let’s just say it’s been a divided town for quite some time.  I wanted ...

A Message to Political Pollsters

Stop_calling_me_by_gemicek

I cannot take credit for this, but I had to repost on my blog.  My wife did a great job summarizing our feelings after 4 Political calls in a row at 10:00 on a Saturday Morning. I don’t know if any of my friends volunteer their time to make calls for their favorite political candidate, and if you do, I respect your convictions and ... Read More »

Bad Luck Or Just Karma Knocking?

Well this is me writing a non-technical self-reflection post, so…..deal with it.  This morning I woke up with some really unsettling feelings.  Many people who know me will know that I don’t believe in a great many things.  I am not that religious, I believe your life is what YOU make of it.  I believe hoping every 4 years a different politician is going to change the ...

Dude….Where Have You Been?!

The short answer…..vacation.  The long answer….vacation In all seriousness, I have been away on some personal time, but since getting back things have started to ramp right up where they left off.  A week or so ago I posted my VMworld Session information and since coming back there has been nothing but PowerPoint work for me.  There is a few ...

Defining My Purpose In Life…Not Exactly

Here’s the funny thing.  I am sitting here after spending three days with some amazing people and discovering some new things about a pretty cool company.  I went into this weekend with an open mind and a bit of excitement.  Over the past few months I decided as some may know to try to help others reach the same goals ...

The Supercharged Challenger SRT8 Journey

Well after all these 38 years of my life it has become clear to me that you really only do live once.  Life is about doing what you love and in some cases doing what you WANT, just because you can.  In the spirit of that I have decided to take my 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 on a journey of horsepower.  For ...

info-product-creation

I wanted to supply a small, yet interesting piece of information that Frank Denneman and I discovered while writing our upcoming white paper.  I want to preface the fact we are looking at this from the PROVIDER’s perspective.  So from a catalog storage aspect this would be the “Published” catalogs maintained by the provider. In the course of examining the ... Read More »

Is Social Medium Destroying The Human Condition?

Some people close to me joke that I am not a “people person”.  However, truth be told, I much prefer to be in real live social situations with actual human beings than living in the social media space that has thrived recently.   I actually am a people person, I just don’t like big crowds of people.  It’s an “exit” fear or something.  I ...
