Ok – a strange title indeed but it’s been a strange couple of months. It all started with a “much needed” vacation and I thought that would get me through the persistent “cold” that I was having all through my travels. Anyway, vacation didn’t help and I came back to find that what I had was a sinus infection. Janaury has been filled with antibiotics, sleep and well……still a lingering cough even though the month is over today. The long story short is that I’m starting to come out of it and I promise to start blogging a lot more frequently starting now. In fact, I have 3 or 4 entries in the queue that I’m plotting for upcoming posts.


To get you started – there are some great and NEW resources that were posted just this week by some of my SQLskills colleagues. If you read their blogs then you’ve probably already seen this but for completeness, I’m going to post them here:

Ok – there’s my first post of 2007 and NOT my last. More to come. Thanks for reading and HAPPY NEW YEAR (at least I got that in January :),
