As I flew from Chicago to Las Vegas yesterday to attend the IBM Impact conference, I was lucky enough to sit on the left side of the plane in a windows seat. As the 3 and 1/2 hour trip proceeded, … Continue reading
Here are a couple of photos from the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from Wednesday, February 29, 2012. These were taken by IBM’s Peter Leabo (thanks!) during my presentation in the afternoon session we hosted in Auditorium A in … Continue reading
Here are some photos from last night’s Maroon 5 concert at the IBM Pulse conference in Las Vegas. The band came on around 8pm, played for 55 minutes, took a 5 minute encore break and then came back for 15 … Continue reading
It’s an artifact of today’s spread out worldwide working culture that many people in large companies never get to meet each other if they work in different locations. I’m down at IBM’s Lotusphere conference this week talking about Mobile for … Continue reading
This last week my wife were on vacation in the Blue Mountain Lake area of the New York Adirondack mountains. Here are a few shots of the lake and surrounding mountains taken at different times of the day and in … Continue reading
I took a few minutes late in the afternoon yesterday to walk around and check on the state of the gardens. We had a very wet spring and I feel like I am weeks behind in weeding, edging, and planting. … Continue reading
Today is the first day of spring and since the temperature hit 45 F, I decided to celebrate by going outside and doing some cleanup after the rough winter we just had. The first task is always picking up the … Continue reading
Roses in front of a window five days after Valentine’s Day. Though you can’t see through the window, it is snowing out there.
Today the temperature reached 45 degrees F here in northwest NY but we still have quite a bit of snow on the ground. So while we are getting some melting, I would say that the mounds of snow are more … Continue reading
For the very few of you who have not seen snow this winter, I post the following four photographs as a public service. These were taken on February 6, 2011, a bit after 7 AM outside my house in northwest … Continue reading

There comes a time in northern waters in fall when the sailboat needs to come out of the lake and put in its winter storage. For me, that time was this weekend, though the sailing season ended for my Catalina … Continue reading
When last we left this project, I had removed the very old screen door, scraped the siding and the main door, and painted both. What was left was to construct a new storm door. I planned to build a new … Continue reading
A couple of days ago I snuck out for a few minutes at lunch to check the status of the plants and flowers. The trees are starting to turn and the vegetable garden is definitely in decline. Here’s a visual … Continue reading
I’ve had my sailboat, a 1988 Catalina 22, on Lake Ontario since the middle of August. I bought this used boat in July and after some preparation, finally got it into the water 5 weeks ago. Therefore I am in … Continue reading
Last March, feeling antsy that winter seemed to be going on forever here in northwestern New York, I paid a visit to the Erie Canal in Pittsford. Most of the canal was covered with snow and ice and so there … Continue reading
We’ve now lived in our 1820 Federal-style house in western New York for 10 years, and in this blog I’ve documented some of the projects I’ve worked on. (A fence, a porch, another porch, yet another porch, some shelves.) We … Continue reading
Three photos of Lake Ontario in early September, taken off Pultneyville, NY, about 20 miles east of Rochester.
So my plan for today was to install a new Tohatsu 6 hp outboard engine on my Catalina 22 sailboat and document some of the process in a blog entry. Thus I started with this photo: Next I removed the … Continue reading
There are two days left in August and though we’re not yet at the end of summer here in northwestern New York State, we starting to be able to see it. The garden is not looking as neat and tidy … Continue reading
Last Sunday my family and I spent a few hours at the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire, just east of the Vermont-New Hamphire border. August Saint-Gaudens was a late nineteenth/early twentieth century American sculptor known for his … Continue reading
We’re fully in the middle of summer here in northwest New York State, climate zone 5b. In another month the nights will start getting quite cool, though we’ll still have some very warm days into September. A month ago I … Continue reading
Some objects from my travels and experiences, mixed in with some scifi books.
We have less than a week to go before summer here in northwest New York, climate zone 5b. A lot has happened bloom-wise since my last update at the end of May, and here is some of what I saw … Continue reading
Before my son and I started working in the backyard on Saturday I took a few photos related to the work to be done. One of my first errands in the morning was to go to the farm market and … Continue reading
There are two days left to May, but it feels like Summer here in northwest New York State. I will be planting the vegetable garden tomorrow, but there are plenty of plants in bloom or making good showings before Spring … Continue reading
After I had finished my meetings in Munich last week but before I started my 48 hour adventure to get home from Germany around the volcanic ash cloud, I had a chance to walk around the city a bit and … Continue reading
Two outlets, both unused. Most airports have pathetic coverage for power outlets, and it’s especially frustrating after they remodel terminals. I understand that they might be trying to drive people into the airline lounges, but some, like Boston Logan, are … Continue reading
It’s been three weeks since I last did an update on the state of flowering things in my yard, and I did manage to sneak out yesterday to survey where things were. We’re at the end of the daffodil season … Continue reading
Last week my family and I went to Chicago to visit my daughter Katie who is in college there. Our primary planned activity was seeing chef and author Anthony Bourdain at the Chicago Theatre, but we took some time on … Continue reading
Two weeks ago tomorrow I planted some seeds for this summer’s vegetable garden and put them under grow lights in the basement. (“Starting the seeds for the Summer vegetable garden”) Dissatisfied after 10 days with having no growth evident, I moved the … Continue reading
Every week or so I’ve been documenting the flowers and flowering shrubs that have been making progress over our long winter here in northwestern New York (climate zone 5b). This last week has shown the great activity so far because … Continue reading
I had targeted April 1 to start the seeds indoors for my vegetable garden for this Summer, and I only missed by one day. Last year I bought plants and started seeds in the ground, but did not begin any … Continue reading
It’s the 2nd of April here in northwest New York State and the weather forecast calls for a high of 80 degrees F (27 C) today. This is very unusual, but I’ll take it. Last night we were able to … Continue reading
A week and a half ago I posted some photos of early flowering plants here in northwest New York State. Though I was away much of this week on a business trip, the weather evidently was warm, sunny, and evidently … Continue reading
Every year I find it hard to resist slipping out of the house on warm sunny days in late winter and photographing the first flowers that break through the ground and snow. Here’s this year’s batch: Here’s what things looked … Continue reading
This afternoon the temperature made it up almost to 50 F here in northwest New York State. This is certainly above normal, which only starts to make up for the very cold but relatively snowless winter this year. I had … Continue reading
Though official Spring is still two weeks away, and “meteorological Spring” is several weeks ater than that here in northwest New York State, it’s possible to find some signs that Winter really is coming to an end. Here are a … Continue reading
I had to make a quick run to the grocery store yesterday and while I’m used to seeing statues, religious and otherwise, in gardens, this seemed to me to be a strange and awkward location for one.
Last year I blogged about the vegetable garden I put in and my trials and tribulations in protecting it from critters. Today my garden looks like what’s shown in the photo on the right. I live and garden in the … Continue reading
Here’s the next round of photos from Lotusphere 2010. Here’s Peter Woodward of Canonical/Ubuntu and me. Light could have been better, but you take what you can get in a meeting room. Next is our friendly penguin friend sporting an … Continue reading
