PMI Certified

I’ve been very much absent from the blog for some time, but in my defence I do have a pretty valid reason for my time away from here. It’s called Project Management Institute, PMI for short. I took a 5 day Project Management Professional prep course in November, filled out an extensive PMI application some time…

Losing The Signal

Only recently did I start to appreciate the wonder that is an audiobook. I never paid audiobooks much attention because I could never focus on listening to something meaningful while performing another task at the same time. Until I started regularly walking our chocolate lab Fado. Fado doesn’t really care if I walk along with…

Beaver Walking

We came across a pretty remarkable sight today when walking Fado along the river bank.

I Am Batman

  All it took is one costume party for me to become Batman…forever! A couple years ago my friends from the said party gave me that photo for my birthday. Last week, I received some Bat accessories, too. My buddy Piotrek and Maciej brew a little hand made goodness in their basements, the results seen…

Bergamo, Italy

I spent the first half of this week in Bergamo, Italy, visiting a plastics manufacturer named Acerbis. I had previously only stopped by Bergamo on my way to Milan, and I must say that I was impressed by what Bergamo had to offer. The city has this totally european/Italian vibe to it. Pizza shops closed…
