So, here’s something new: I started a new job today with a startup called Our365. A photo sharing website for families of New Borns. This feels like a new direction and a new opportunity and I am excited to see what we can to do with it. It’s practically building new from the ground up. I will no longer enjoy a short walking commute in the mornings as I will be catching the express 4 train every morning to my office on Park Avenue.

The Lost Art of Adventure

So, as a boy, I remember getting on a plane for the first time and waiting for the plane to take off, the thrill of zooming down the runway into the air, the wonder of the clouds as seen from the other side. It was as if you were as important as the astronauts before you because you were seeing a sight unknown to man for most of civilization.

And then came growth, bad management, and well, everyday American greed.

Key West Birthday

Julie planned a birthday trip for us from Manhattan to Miami, then rent a convertible and drive to Key West. The plane was delayed so the drive in the convertible, although still fun, was made a bit less by the fact that we drove from 10:30pm to 2am, so not much to be seen on the drive in. Still, what a nice birthday surprise!!!

St Germain en Cogles, France

Some time off, we headed south to Brittany in lower France to a little cottage estate owned by the Campling family. Lot’s of Wine, Games, and golf this weekend. Tomorrow I am going to help Chaz with cladding the side of the barn. It’s not just beautiful here, it’s postcard kind of beautiful.

Countryside of France

St Germain en Cogles, France. A few days with the Campling family at their summer home in Brittany, France. I helped clad the side of a barn today as well as uproot a tree. Tomorrow we’re going to play on a century old golf course.

Nathan’s Report Card

Ask me, who has a kid, who just got strait A’s on a report card, is doing well in Baseball, reads on a grade level above his, has been doing all his house chores as promised and wants to buy a cookbook for kids so he can learn to cook.

Go ahead, ask me. 🙂

Canon EOS 30D

I have owned my Canon EOS 30D for a year as of today. I’m pleased with the year I’ve had with it. I hope it gets even better in the years to come.

Visiting the Dwyers

A short trip to visit Kelly and Pat in Virginia, near Washington D.C. We were treated to a tour of the mall and as many monuments as we could squeeze in. There’s a lot to take in here and you could spend a week at the Smithsonian and still not see it all.

It’s good to see our friends from New York again.
