This Father’s Day dessert brought to you (and me) by AoME and CaaB. All homemade, and so good you’d swear it’s gotta be illegal.
The Career Express comes to an end this morning, at the Tech-Ed North America conference in Los Angeles. Just 100 more miles to go. And I’m pretty bummed about it, all things considered.
Sure it’ll be nice to get back to living without wheels. But this trip was absolutely everything I thought it would be, and more.
I saw the gamut of everything in the United States, and met a whole bunch of awesome IT people at the different stops while doing so. I saw a bunch of old friends who came out to say ‘Heya,’ and made some new friends in true Team NewBlood fashion.
In fact, it’s no longer the Career Express, but the Swag Express. We’re rolling up to the south entrance of Tech-Ed at roughly 8:30a this morning.
Every piece of swag still being carried by the bus (and there is a LOT of it) will be given away. First-come, first-served.
It’s been real. It’s been fun. And it’s really been really fun.
My amazingly kickass freelance writer of a wife chalked up another cover story this month, this time about the living legend of NASCAR, Jeff Gordon…
Of course, she interviewed him back in the summer during a weekend event. Which just so happened to be the same weekend as the Brickyard 400. At Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As in, Indy. THE Indy.
And knowing how much I follow and enjoy NASCAR…did she invite me to go along on this one? That would be a big neg-a-tory, good buddy. Not that I’m bitter or anything about it.
Enough of my sob story…there are some pretty sweet giveaways attached to this. First, a lasagna recipe from Jeff’s mom, Carol, so you too can enjoy the pasta of champions.
Second, there’s a giveaway contest. Up for grabs?
- Grand prize: A 1:24 scale fantasy die cast car from the Jeff Gordon Foundation
- Runner-up prize: Pit Stop in a Southern Kitchen, a recipe book authored by Martha Earnhardt (wife of Ralph, mother of Dale, and grandmother of Dale, Jr.) and Carol Gordon Bickford (Jeff’s mom)
As always, you gotta be in it to win it, so enter before 2.28.2009 if you want to be in the running.
