Aesthetic Wonka

Has flu season started yet?  Do we have a cool-named strain?  Whatever it is, I’ve got it.  Boooooo.  If you were to ask my mom, you have to be really careful with me during flu season, because I got mono from Jennifer Kirkland as…

87th Melding

I had just settled down for a long evening’s blog… when Crys said, “Hey, watch the puppy for minute.”  I walked outside.  No puppy.  I whistled.  No puppy.  I found our grown-up boxer all well-behaved sitting with a nervous gleam in her eyes.  But,…

$35M Flags

Oh my.  Long time, no blog.  Lots happening.  Pulled a hammy playing flag football.  I only mention that because I’ve moved 3 times already to get comfortable enough to write 5 sentences.  Getting old is new to me… relatively.  In my head, I’m really…

Oxford Rain

About 5 years ago, I made a conscious decision to start using the Oxford Comma.  You have to choose sides.  You have to.  You’re either a fan, or you are not.  If you end up using both in the same writing, we need to…

Fat Tie Attitude

I had to shovel my driveway and scrape ice off my windows this morning.  Crazy what thin California blood does to your internal thermostat… and your perception of reality.  After a few days of destruction, we got our engineer back in the building today. …

Bronze Collaboration

Congrats to Courtney for the title prize from yesterday.  I owe her In-N-Out… although word on the street is that it’ll be all veggie.  Such a shame.  The 807 in our last title is the new Arizona address.  Once it’s all official with the…

807 Keys

We have an old-school ring of keys for the new building.  They’re mostly for padlocks that may or may not exist anymore.  One’s that circle kind for the gate.  One’s for the alarm company.  But, one is a very special key.  It only does…

College Eggs

On behalf of our website servers, I’d like to apologize for the downtime today.  I’d have to imagine that most people didn’t notice, but no one likes websites that don’t work.  So, if you’d been waiting to read our blog, surf the site, or…

E.T. & The Luxe

Uh oh.  Bad news first.  We found asbestos in the building.  Not a lot, but enough to shut down demolition.  The good news… we now have to remove everything and do what’s called a Procedure 5 clean-up.  After it’s done, you and your kids…

Bribes & Auto-Pick

Had another solid round of interviews today.  It’s looking pretty great.  Of course you have to sift through submissions to find the diamonds, but we’ve found some diamonds.  One even brought us some dessert snacks… yes, I guess bribes work.  The 2 masters degrees…
