Hello my dear readers,
It has been a long time since I posted but ya know life sometimes gets in the way. Lots of moving, work, travel and projects and the past few years have been life changing on so many levels. This will be a non tech post but next ones will be some new database content!
- I am no longer an Oracle ACE Director or ACE. More on this later. Short answer- I got way too busy with work and personal stuff to contribute to forums and events.
- Now I work in government as a public civil servant after many years in the private sector. Why? After corporate layoffs and restructuring, I wanted more job security and no longer felt like traveling on airplanes and living out of a suitcase! Plus the pension on retirement is nice bonus.
- My wonderful mother passed away in 2019 at 9am when I was at work. She will be forever missed and was a bright light in my life. She was the best mom that a son could ever have.
- I burned out writing database books. After sacrificing my free time and writing and co-authorizing six database books, it was time to do other things like get my pilot license, travel for fun and learn to scuba dive!
- I self published my first non tech book called Free Money Now! You can get it on Amazon.
- Hopefully I will be moving into a new house soon. Home buying is a long stressful process.
