Georgia Picture Day

Saturday was picture day at UGA.  Since the Bulldogs are #1, all the freaks (or maybe it's the rednecks) came out.

Oscar & Big Daddy walking to Sanford Stadium. Oscar wanted #24 for Knowshon Moreno.


Michael & Matt Cerione. Matt is the centerfielder for Georgia. Michael watched all of their post-season games and knows most of their names (though he did call this Matt by the name of the rightfielder, Matt Olson). Michael would have stayed there and asked them questions all day. He had the biggest grin on his face.


Sanford Stadium (minus 95,000 fans)


Oscar & Knowshon. This is as closed as we could have gotten to the running backs. The line for the running backs was several hours long.


All we wanted was for Michael to meet Matthew Stafford, but it didn't quite work out that way. We arrived at 1pm, 2 hours before the players arrived. The players signed autographs for 2 hours. So, we waited a bit over 4 hrs so that Michael could meet Matthew Stafford. We were 5 people from the end of the line when they told the players to leave. It's been a long time since Michael cried this hard. He didn't care about getting Stafford's autograph; he just wanted to meet him.

Michael got over it pretty quickly though when Beth told him he could take a bath with Henry.

No more trips to Vietnam

Well, last week was a big week for me. I decided to leave FCG and return to work for Coca-Cola Enterprises. I had been talking with the people I know at CCE since late last year about working with them and they finally had a position open up a couple of weeks ago. I'm excited to go back there and work on the business side of the company versus the IT side. I start on Apri l16. I will be working in the Revenue Management Department as the Forecasting & Planning Manager. Essentially I will be the business process owner, facilitator, and coordinator of all forecasting and planning activities within the company. That involves working with all of the regional and corporate business units to ensure that the tools and related processes are thoroughly integrated across finance, revenue management, supply chain, logistics and sales. I will also be responsible for managing all of the support tools and solutions, so I still get to be a Project Manager. This is a big job with lo

Dublin & Beyond

I arrived in Dublin Wednesday evening. Somehow the 1-hour flight from Heathrow made it in 30 minutes. How is that even possible? I'm staying at The Marker Hotel again. I stayed at The Marker when I first came to Dublin two years ago. Back then, it was their grand opening. This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. Incredible service (more on that in a bit). Thursday and Friday I was teaching a 2-day Tableau class at the Facebook office. Since I was last here, Facebook has moved into a new office right next to The Marker. Facebook Dublin's new home From the 5th floor looking down at the cafeteria The rooftop has spectacular views of the entire city Thursday evening, my good friend Ivan took me to a local eatery called Lolly & Cooks. We kind of had to go here since nothing else was open. All of the pubs stop serving food at like 5:30pm. It's strange! We enjoyed a light meal of fish before taking on these amazing desserts. I went for the r

Double Chocolate Chip Dream Cookies

If you love chocolate, these are the cookies for you. The name says it all...Double Chocolate Chip Dream Cookies. Indeed, they are a dream! It takes about 10 minutes to make the batter, then eight minutes to cook. You can be eating these in less time than it takes to watch an episode of The Office. To make them vegan:  Use 1/4 cup of applesauce (from Whole Foods in the UK) for each egg Replace the butter with margarine (make sure it's stick margarine) Use dark chocolate chips (you can get a 2KG bag of chocolate chips at Costco).  Unlike last time, when I used tub margarine and melted it too much, use stick margarine and let it come to room temperature to soften. This made a HUGE difference.  They're super delicious! Enjoy!
