So, last week was pretty crazy. On Monday morning, I woke up in Manhattan. Tuesday through Thursday, I hoofed it into San Francisco, for JavaOne. And on Friday, I woke up in Chicago, where I went to the Cubs game, and finally to see Woven Hand live at Schuba's in downtown Chicago. After all of that, I was ready to just kick back and relax for a few days (which I did). The Cubs game was pretty fun, even though they lost. The weather was absolutely beautiful for July in Chicago -- partly cloudy, nice breeze, not humid, and most importantly, not too hot.
After the game, the family and I checked out Chicago's new Millennium Park. Seems like a pretty sweet deal -- Chicago definitely has another showpiece to add to the attractions that they already have.
Woven Hand didn't disappoint, as well. David Eugene Edwards is simply amazing, and with Woven Hand, he is really cutting loose a bit more -- the performance veered a lot more towards hard rock, much more so than I expected.
Did the 4th of July with the family -- everybody came over to our house, and we had food, home-made ice cream (yum), and lots of good family time. My family is still doing their thing, and providing a good time as per usual.
But, it is back to the grind tomorrow -- after I fly back to San Francisco, of course.
