Summer Vacation - Part 1

Flying from US to UK in 30 Minutes

This past July, I flew to the UK from the US in 30 minutes!  How is that possible?  What kind of a plane did you use? you might ask.  Well, I used a technicality!  The flight was not from IAD, JFK, or BOS in the US to LHR in the UK.  That type of flight would take about 7 hours.

Miami Open 2022

Two years ago, I wrote a post about tennis.  It's time for the update.

I had been sitting on my SeatGeek credit for two years.  They were kind enough to extend my credit for an extra year in February of 2021.  As the expiration date approached in February of 2022, I decided to once again buy Miami Open tickets.

First Post of 2022

Have I abandoned blogging or has blogging abandoned me?

I used to average 40-50 posts per year but in recent years it has been a struggle to reach double digits.  I guess that's what happens when your first child is born right before the whole world shuts down.  Will 2022 be different...I hope so.

From the Rockies to the Smokies

Baby Ace took an unprecedented three hour nap earlier today which contributed to me writing this post.  I had a work trip in May and decided to extend it by visiting my brother and his family in Tennessee.  My connecting flight was in Denver.  I wish I had a bit more time between flights to go see the city for the first time.  Who knows, maybe I would have ran into NBA's new MVP.

Do You Really Want to Be Dealt Pocket Aces?

I play in a private tournament with friends on PokerStars couple times per month.  Typically, we allow for two rebuys per player in the first hour and we pay out the top three 50/30/20.  Here are three hands from the last two tournaments I played in:
