Traveling again

Greetings from the Pacific Northwest. I’m in Bellevue, Washington, taking Herb Sutter’s class, Effective Concurrency. Scott Meyers took the chair right behind me; and, yes, he still needs a haircut. Of course, so do I . . . but not quite so badly. I suspect that I’ll write something here in the coming week or so about what I’m learning.

I spent some time over the weekend with my in-laws in Portland, Oregon. It was wonderful seeing them. And their mischievous dog Penny finally stopped barking at me whenever I stood up by the time I left. The weather is quite beautiful out here, and Dave (my father-in-law) and I went out to the Columbia River Gorge.

A few pictures from this trip and from the last year appear below. They’re all from my mobile phone. One day, I’ll get myself a real digital camera. Maybe one day soon. . . .
