Another Trip to Tel Aviv

Highlights of my recent two week business trip to Tel Aviv, my second trip in less than a year. I, and two colleagues, Eric and Tom, taught over 40 employees at AT&T Tel Aviv how to work with the software tools we've developed. While the business side of the trip kept me very busy, I was able to to take a quick trip to Jerusalem, where Eric ran in the Jerusalem half marathon in the morning (and I took photos). Fortunately, he had enough energy remaining to accompany me on an afternoon tour of the Christian quarter of Jerusalem's Old City (last year's trip to Jerusalem we visited the Jewish Quarter).

Greg the Cable Guy

Cable guy training time again. It feels like mandatory military service. This time around our job description has broadened to include connecting the house to the telephone wires strung from telephone poles. So here I am up on a 22 foot extension ladder learning to strap myself to the ladder, and my ladder to the wire and to the telephone pole.
