A year ago today, Sharon, Jack and I started on our trip to the Philippines. I have worked on a diary of the trip, but never finished it. Over the next two weeks, I am going to finish publishing the written and photo journal. Heringer's in the Philippines, Day 1 was previously posted. Due to the time change and the length of the trip, Day Two is dated January 14!
Sharon and I have talked a lot over the last few months about our next big trip. Originally, we had talked about going to France with a side trip to visit Liz and Martin in Holland during the summer of 2004. We are now probably going to push that off until 2005 and do a domestic trip this year. We recently heard the Grand Canyon described as one of the places that you will ever go that lives up to its billing and have started to consider it as a possibility.
Employee Reviews, Employee Reviews, Employee Reviews... From a work stand point, the first two weeks of January are consumed with writing and giving employee performance reviews. The SHSS IT Department includes over 400 people. Getting everyone's review completed by January 16th is a major logistical undertaking.
