The next week or so will be on the road. This week I'm in Santa Clara, California doing business work. I get back to Portland on Friday but, rather than stay at home, I'm driving to Black Butte Ranch to spend one night with my family. Then on Saturday, I'll drive back to Portland and get on a plane to Helsinki, Finland to attend a conference. I hope to put up some pictures before I come back -- it's a computer conference so I'll have connectivity. Conference on Monday and Tuesday, then I get one day to see the city before getting on the plane back home.

No, not really home, because I immediatly drive to central Oregon to spend two nights looking at the stars at the Oregon Star Party.

Maybe I'll get to recover on Labor Day.
