Today was my birthday. I slept late (but not as late as I would have liked!) I had two great meetings with savvy financial pros as part of my search for a new position. I got some recognition for my first cleantech opinion article published on a leading local blog. Family and friends called, emailed, tweeted, wrote and posted to Facebook. I got a few modest, but thoughtful and useful gifts. My granddaughter gave me many hugs. I had a gourmet Thai dinner (and cupcakes!) at home with my wife and most of the kids and their girlfriends/boyfriends.
