“Hindsight is a beautiful thing”, I was recently reminded.  With hindsight, last week wasn’t the super-catch-up exercise I’d hoped.  But, instead, it was a good week for new ideas (all captured, naturally).

Last week:

My life doesn’t revolve around the television.  I don’t watch any terrestrial broadcasts.  I am especially uninterested in “prime”-time offerings (e.g. soaps). Ugh.  Instead…

Last week was fantastic. Lots of stuff achieved, plus a few blockers along the way which have spilled over into this week and new challenges. To top off last week, a close friend of mine had a great birthday BBQ on Saturday and then became a father on Sunday. Congrats to them!
