Good Start to 2019

We started 2019 with a hike on the Mapleton Preserve in Kingston NJ. The Mapleton Preserve consists of land and buildings that were a part of Princeton Nurseries which was the largest tree farm in the USA.

Our First Cruise Ship Experience

View from ship as we cruised past Paradise Island.

This March we flew to Ft Lauderdale, boarded one of the largest Cruise ships in the world, Allure of the Seas, and cruised the Carribean. The ship's like a city with many restaurant choices, shows and other activities. I was very impressed by the efficient, compact bathroom design. The design was more practical than many hotel bathrooms that are more than twice the size!

Annual Telecommunications Summit provides Training on New Technologies

I spent most of this week in Deer Valley, Utah, at the annual Telarus Partner Summit learning about the newest options for such thing as SD-WAN, UCaaS, diverse circuits, hosted voice, circuit monitoring, and many more. This was the 6th and final year that the summit has been held at the Stein Eriksen Resort, an awesome, very beautiful location.

We have outgrown the capacity of the Stein Eriksen location; next year the summit will be held at the Boca Raton Resort in Florida.

Thanksgiving and Christmas

For Thanksgiving, Val, Kristina and myself flew down to Paradise Island where we enjoyed some warmer weather, great food, and daily yoga practice at the Yoga Retreat. We have visited the Paradise Island Yoga Retreat a number of times beginning about 27 years ago. The Atlantis Resort on the island has grown unbelievably during that time. The Beach tower and the Coral tower were there then. Now the Atlantis includes 5 towers with 3 being about twice as many stories as the Beach and Coral towers. There was an airport on the island back then - now it's a golf course! At any rate, we enjoyed the break and are hoping that the Island will not disappear with the sea level rise associated with Global Warming!

We enjoyed a very pleasant Christmas at home with Kristina, Jake, and Oliver visiting. Oliver is spending the week with us while Kristina and Jake vacation in LA. Christmas Day, we took Teddi on a good long walk during which she showed off her new space outfit:
