We are in the midst of the holiday season this year. HP, at least in the US, is shutting down for a 2 week break, and as tradition has it, the last day before the holiday break is a half day. In fact, my last conference calls and meetings of the year are complete, and I've got a just a couple of things to finish before my break starts.
For me, the break means two weeks that I get to spend with my wife (a teacher who is also off for two weeks), family, and friends, a San Jose Sharks game, and an afternoon of wine tasting. If I get bored, some Christmas shopping and catching up with some work around the house will keep me busy, I'm sure.
For the blog, it means that this is likely the last entry for the year. If you post comments, my apologies, but they might not get posted until the new year. However, I'm sure that I'll be back, nice and refreshed, with some additional blog posts during the first week of January.
To all those who read this blog, I wish you and yours a happy holiday, and best wishes for the New Year. Here's hoping that 2010 is a better year for all of us.
