I just returned from our annual IT conference in Florida and I believe it has been my most impactful conference yet. Of course I am always grateful for the warmer weather but it’s the people I appreciated the most.

It was pretty neat to see some of my colleagues (who have become friends over the years) asked to present some of the training materials as experts in their field.

One of our customers recently sent me an article regarding the changes Microsoft is making in the expected release of Office 2013 in March of next year. One of the big changes is to encourage consumers to buy the software as a monthly subscription instead of the outright software purchase option to which we are currently accustomed.

Donating has always been something that is important to me and I try to do it as often as I can. I think it connects us to our community and helps us be more conscious of how much we have for which to be grateful.

ETB most recently donated some old computers to a local school who used them in the classrooms and to create a new teachers lounge.

Have you ever heard someone say a person was “Penny-wise but Dollar-foolish”? I understand that phrase to describe somebody who focuses really hard on the details yet sometimes doesn’t put in those extra couple of seconds to catch the big things.

My wife and I just recently made our first trip of the season to the shore. It was great to smell the ocean air and visit all of our good friends: Mack, Sam, Harry, Curly, and the Kohr Brothers.

Anyone who is familiar with the boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ knows I just listed my top five places to eat on the boardwalk.

Last month you heard me talk about how much we enjoyed our time in Ireland. So I’m sure it seems ironic that this month’s topic is about how much I enjoyed coming home.

Don’t get me wrong – I love a good vacation as much as the next person! But being away also helps me appreciate the life that I’ve built back home.

Slainte! That means “Cheers” in Gaelic, the native language of Ireland. This is where Karen and I spent our honeymoon and we loved it!

Although many people suggested some relaxing beach spots or cruises, we opted for a rigorous travel schedule in the beautiful countryside of the southern part of Ireland.

As Karen and I are closing in on the last few weeks until our wedding, I’m happy to say all of the big pieces are in place. The only things left are the details. That’s where the real beauty lies!

It’s the little things that make it unique like the music we choose for our special moments, trading a traditional cake for an artistically crafted cupcake stand, and including a nacho station at the cocktail hour to highlight the fact we’re getting married on Cinco de Mayo.
