Busy Busy Busy !!! October 23, 2008Posted by Richard Foote in Oracle Index Seminar, Richard's Musings.
I thought I better publish something just in case anyone feared I had fallen down a cliff or something.
These’s last few weeks have been so hectic, it’s been crazy. I seriously got home tonight and noticed that some of my roses in the garden were blooming and I actually made a conscious decision to smell them and just enjoy the moment.
Then I remembered I was running late and had to help with the kids and that precious little moment just disappeared :)
Played in a football tournament over the weekend where I played 6 games of soccer over two days in 29C heat, so my body is suffering a bit at the moment. We won the “Saucer” and the title of “The Best of the Worst” teams so it was a somewhat successful campaign !! Scored a few goals as well :)
Much of my spare time is spent getting everything organised and ready for my trip to Europe next week. All the dates for my Indexing “Extravaganza” Seminar tour as part of the Oracle University Celebrity series have now been confirmed so there’s a lot of travel and a lot of presenting ahead of me over the coming weeks.
All the dates and venues can be found on my Public Appearance page and list on the right.
I’ve also been invited to present at the Finland Oracle User Group on October 30 at Helsinki so I’m now leaving a few days earlier to make it a nice round 3 week trip in total. I’m actually feeling just a little bit tired and exhausted just thinking about it all but it should be a whole lot of fun and I look forward to meeting some of you on my travels. I haven’t been to many of these places before so any good suggestions of where to eat, drink and what to see always appreciated :)
The blog has had to take a back seat but I’ll try and write something before I go and a few entries during my travels. Looking forward to the Christmas holidays already !!
