2018 Summary

Two months behind schedule, it is time for a year-in-review.  When it comes to hobbies, like this blog, punctuality is trivial.

Let's start with poker or should I say lack of poker.

Ace Tours WW

What does WW stand for?  Is it a World War museum, a Wonder Woman movie set, a Weight Watchers office, Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, or the Washington Wizards locker room?  All of those are acceptable guesses but WW stands for the West Wing of the White House.

Back in the Air

Greetings from the air again.  I didn’t plan to type up another post while flying but such is life.  In the last post, I left off as we arrived to PR for vacation and to celebrate the New Year.  We met up with my wife’s family, about 25 of us.  I find it interesting that our culture focuses more on celebrating the beginning of a new year and less on reflecting on the previous year and toasting to the accomplishments.  Of course, some years will be better than others but what’s the point if at the end of every December we say, “Glad 201x is over, can’t wait for 201y!"  Seems like a very pessimistic outlook from one year to the next.
