The New Year

Its not a resolution but I do have things to say so I'll try to remember to say them here.

This will be a catch up entry

Riley Hale Kesten entered this world 5 weeks early, lost a bit of weight, but within a few days was home with her Mom (Dori) and her Dad (Jay). Women have always been an important part of my life but this woman has taken over. She is beautiful, she is wonderful to hold and I'm her Zaida.

A few days after coming home from Winston-Salem Helene and I flew out to Vancouver, stayed a few days and then drove with Mark down to San Diego. The scenery going down the Pacific coast is incredible - when you can see it - we encountered a lot of fog in Washington and Oregon.

Arriving in San Diego we shopped and helped Mark settle into his new San Diego apartment. As of today he has attended some orientation session, has his apartment mostly in shape and is ready to accept this next challenge in his life.

Helene and I are finally home. Its been a tiring few months but there is still work to be done.

I am teaching ECS 100, EPS 200 and EBUS 350 this semester. I'm also on the DPE Executive Board, the editor of the Business Education Digest (with a soon to be new website) and committed to completing a few old projects and beginning a few new ones.

Helene and I went to Winston-Salem to spend a few days with Jay, Dori and Riley right after classes ended. Grandchildren are a delight.
