Cold reader

Here’s one more picture of LRN4 at Half Moon Bay.  Looks cold, doesn’t it?  It was.  Part of my famous Vacation series.

Wow.  It’s been quite a long time since my last post.  Lots of new stuff, so let’s get started.

LRN4 and I went to Salt Lake City last Wednesday for the Church’s annual LDS Tech conference, which was held on Thursday and Friday.  They had 400 people registered – twice what they had last year – but it looked like only about 200 showed up.  So they had about the same number of people as last year.  We only had a few in the LDS Tools iOS group, but we had a nice time together and got a tiny bit of work done.  Could have been better.  Should have been better.  But we did have a nice time.  Which counts for something.  A couple new people started working with us, one who was there and another who participated by videocon.

In today’s LDS Tools telecon, two more new group members dialed in.  Woo hoo!  One is even a highly skilled iOS programmer.  Something which we’ve been lacking just a bit.  We’re all getting good – some better than others – but we haven’t really had any people with a lot of experience.  So we’re glad to have him, along with the other new folks.

We visited with LRN2 on Friday and Saturday.  Had a really nice visit.  He’s doing great.  I surely miss him, but I’m delighted with how well he’s doing living on his own.

The drive back and forth was pleasant.  We took our friend Art, who spent the days there with his wife and kids.  The kids are all in school at BYU in Provo and Idaho, and the wife has been there since January.  They apparently had a really nice time together, and we had a pleasant drive.

The weather had a minor twist, though.  It was in the 70s on Thursday through Saturday, and we woke up Sunday to about six inches of snow.  The roads were just wet and a bit slushy, having been well warmed up over the previous few days.  The storm had come in from the north, apparently, so we were out of it within 45 minutes of our departure and had sunshine the rest of the way.  It was really nice here in Lardville.  Also was today and will be tomorrow.  Thursday and Friday look like cool temperatures and rain.  Which we don’t need right now.  But somehow the weather doesn’t seem to care what we need, does it?

Anyway.  Everything else is fine.  Work’s fine.  Commuting is fine.  Home is fine.

We’re having as many as twelve people to dinner on Saturday evening for a church activity.  We haven’t gotten confirmation from four of them, but the others are all committed.  Should be a nice time, if we can find someplace for everybody to eat.  Maybe in the garage.

Time for bed.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this combined shocking food violence news and exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: pecan rustler!

See you tomorrow.

    This is Roswell, here. I wondered how the intergalactic pecan market is. Probably rotates around thefts in Roswell. Not that we should tell the Roswell folks that.
