OK, it’s been a heck of a long time since I blogged… and for that I apologize. I’m also WAY overdue in my posting my demo scripts from a TON of conferences BUT… now everything has been posted. Check out the past events page on SQLskills and you can find the demo scripts that you’re looking for……lots of fun stuff and TONS of scripts to play with and test.

Now – as for the reason(s)…. many are business and for that I blame the following (yes, 17 flights [yes, one boarding pass is missing] over ONE 5 week trip with 7 events and 5 continent changes):

The other reason(s) are personal…suffice it to say that the last 6 months have been some life changing times for me and what I’m finding (or trying to find) is that ever important balance between work and life. During this holiday season (and always), I wish you and your loved ones well and I hope that you too can find (and cherish) what’s most important to you.

So, you won’t see anything else from me for this year but I do hope to be better (and more frequent) with blogging in the New Year and I especially hope to see you again at an upcoming conference. Let me leave you with the most exciting picture I’ve witnessed this year…it was during my one day of site seeing in Cape Town – where I went cage diving with Great White Sharks (and got horribly sea sick – which is rare for me) but where I was able to witness these amazing and powerful creatures….

Have a happy and safe holiday season!
