Happy Thanksgiving from SQL Feather and Quill

Happy Thanksgiving – sorry it’s a day late – I’ve had some technical difficulties up in Grand Marais.  I’m writing this in response to Jason Strate’s (blog/twitter) post asking “What are you thankful for?”  This year, I’ve got many, many things to be thankful for.  I try to keep my life simple:  Family, Work and Running.  Usually in that order…


Always #1!  I’ve got a great family that I’m very thankful for and some unbelievable friends.  Here’s a link to the Family Photo Site – see tons of photos of my family.  Here are some of my favorite group shots and my two 11 year old dogs.

I’m very thankful that my career has taken an unexpected turn – in a good way.  I’ve got lots of new opportunities coming up… 

  • Some time to actually do development DBA work.
  • Keeping up this blog.
  • Working with others on the MN SQL Pass executive board
  • Coaching Dale Carnegie class 


I’ve been blessed with good health.  For some reason I like running – at times I’m not exactly sure why…but I’m very thankful for it!  I get to run the Boston Marathon this year.  Read all about the trials and tribulations I went through to qualify and raise money for the American Cancer Society here.
