  • Mid-October Lunchtime Walk

    Mid-October Lunchtime Walk

    Shortly after noon, I looked up from my desk to see a balmy mid-October day inviting me to a lunchtime walk. Who was I to decline? Grabbing my camera, I headed out for a clockwise 1.5 mile walk around Hawthorn Farm. I snapped pictures of fall leaves in between kicking and stomping the acorns scattered…

  • Commute by Bike in Folsom

    Commute by Bike in Folsom

    I brought my bike along as we deliver Melissa to college so I could bike to work in Folsom. That’s a first for me. I was able to ride along the American River bike trail part of the way, so I took some pictures. I made a mistake, took a wrong turn, and ended up…

  • Biking in the Mist: Lessons Learned

    Biking in the Mist: Lessons Learned

    Even though today’s weather forecast is rain, I pedaled my bike to work. Along the way, hearing raindrops sprinkle on my helmet, I learned a few things: When the weather rock is damp, the humidity is 100%. Don’t expect much evaporative cooling. It’s better to slow down. Drinking an extra-hot white mocha while riding may…

    It’s Friday! The weather is gorgeous. Here are a few of the shots I took on the ride to work. I hope you have a wonderful day. This is day 8 on the bike this year.

  • All Moved In

    All Moved In

    My three boxes, monitor, and stands were delivered last Friday. I went in this morning to get everything in its place so I could hit the ground running Monday morning. All my cables, cords, and locks are in place. Just a couple of zip ties will make it tidy. Update. I just bought a cube-warming…

  • Last Day at Jones Farm

    Last Day at Jones Farm

    It’s my last day at Intel’s Jones Farm campus. Monday, I start at the Hawthorn Farm campus. I don’t think my cube has ever been this clean. No tchotchkes, no loose papers. I even corralled the dust bunnies behind the monitor. Goodbye JF3-2-H6. It’s been fun!

  • Intel Hawthorn Farm Walking Routes

    Intel Hawthorn Farm Walking Routes

    I’m moving Intel campuses later this week — from Jones Farm to Hawthorn Farm. The Jones Farm campus is great for walking. It’s time for a quick visit to Google maps to see what Hawthorn Farm has to offer. I see what might be nice 1.2 and 1.5 mile walks. :-) I wonder what walking…

  • My New Cube at Intel’s Hawthorn Farm Campus

    My New Cube at Intel’s Hawthorn Farm Campus

    Today was the open house for those of us who will be moving into a remodeled floor at Intel’s Hawthorn Farm campus. I went, found my new cube, and took some pictures. It doesn’t look much like the Intel Conan O’Brien visited a while back. No gray walls, no gray cubicles, no blue-gray carpeting. It’s…

    The View From 23A

    I flew home with Melissa. She was good company and put up with my continual picture taking.
