I'm trying to get back to this blog, but truely haven't had the time. I have been attending as many meetings as possible and can report that, so far, the deamenor of the Southern Shores Town Council as a whole has changed considerably. The meetings are more subdued, congenial, and most importantly more productive.
My distractions through December and January have been, family, dog training, and a rather complicated project at work. The work project (virtualizing our servers) has been much more complicated than I could have ever imagined, but will be worth the effort once all the loose ends are tied up. Through the "high availablity" that is only possible through virtualization, we will have a level of redundancy, mobility, and a disaster recovery capability that is truely "mind-boggling".
My new German Shepherd, Ruger Casa de Perros (18 months), is showing a lot of promise in his training, and appears to be ready for his first Schutzhund trial. I hope we will be able to obtain his BH (Obedience) title in March. But this will require doubling up on the training sessions over the next few weeks to develop a little more finesse in the required routines.
