Independence Day party

Come by my place on July 4th for food and fireworks. I live on Lake Union, close enough to the fireworks that you can feel the concussion. Best place in town to view them.


  • kids discouraged, but if you want to expose them to a bunch of my friends, be my guest.
  • must let me know you are coming. parking and space is limited. I gots to know you will be here ahead of time.
  • arrive early. fireworks start after sundown, but the seattle police block off the streets in the late afternoon. if you come late, you need to find parking and hike in.
  • food bringing appreciate. no outdoor grilling though for insurance reasons.

New business cards today

One thing about developers is that we rarely have the need to give out business cards unless we are developing for clients or are involved in selling products. I have new business cards today. Last ones I had were from 3 years ago and simply say Software Design Engineer. Been promoted twice since then, and have held each of the new positions for over a year. My new cards say Cruise Development Manager. I'll probably give out a grand total of 25 of these new ones. And have several promotions before I bother to get the title changed again. I'll be a Vice President at that point.

I need to figure out what to do with the old ones. Hate just throwing them in the recycle box. May use them for jotting a note to carry with me down the hallway. But I have a lot of them, and I don't jot many small notes.
