Heather, Floyd, and Orion have been in Massachusetts for the past 9 days -- the house is strangely quiet. I miss them, but I don't miss the chaos. Solitude is therapeutic sometimes.
So I've pretty much been focusing 100% on work. It's really amazing to be back. I feel like I'm picking it right back up and accomplishing a lot. I've also been heavily involved in this year's annual Light the Night Walk -- The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual big fund raiser to fight against blood cancer.
In fact, I'm Captain for Team Salesforce this year. I'm trying to raise $100k by getting scores of people to walk and fund raise.

I've been doing these kickoff prezos, telling my story, and rallying the company to support the LLS. I've never really had a cause before. Now I have one.

In case you're wondering, anyone can join our team -- you don't have to be a Salesforce employee. You just have to walk 2 miles (flat, easy, super inspiring, fun for the whole family) and raise a little money (it's soooo easy -- you get your own personal online fundraising page with a URL you can mail to your friends.) Here's a short video of what it's all about. C'mon, watch the first 60 seconds of it. Kareem's in it!

Other than gearing up for the MLB postseason, there really hasn't been much besides work. One fun thing: pcal came up to hang last Saturday and we went to the Marin Pinball Expo. We played a bunch of different games for a few hours. Of course, they had my favorite machine ever, Earthshaker. It was on the end of a row, so you can see the side art:

I also rode about 9 miles on Tuesday -- round trip to Little Arrows to play piano for the kiddos. It actually wasn't bad, and I made good time. It was hot though -- I think morning/evening rides to/from the Ferry are going to be doable soon. Maybe next week.
That's it for now. Go Phillies.
Ass, meet foot.
