My wife and I just returned from a quick trip out of town and it reminded me how much I like to visit small towns that are different from our home. I enjoy getting up into the mountains and seeing life happen in a different way.

It’s neat to see what another area has to offer in terms of their history, recreation, and people.

It’s no surprise to see this winter living up to its nickname as the “cold and flu season”. It has quickly taken hold since the holidays and it seems as though many people are either currently sick, trying to fight it off, or recovering from it.

The holidays are fast approaching and time seems to be passing too quickly for many of us. It’s easy to get caught up in the momentum and feel a loss of control and increased stress.

What I try to keep in mind is that these things -- additional holiday commitments, other people’s expectations, and society’s pressures -- are not going to change.

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.
