'We Didn't Start the Fire’

Do you remember Billy Joel's song 'We Didn't Start the Fire’? Here it is, set to pictures --- a flashback of 50 years of history in less than 3 minutes! The images move quickly; you might have to watch this more than once. A friend shared this with me this morning and it is pretty cool...DW

Snow in North Carolina

As many know, I grew up in North Carolina until graduating from college and moving to Colorado. It snowed overnight in North Carolina. Many people are not aware that North Carolina gets snow, or for that fact, even have ski resorts. It is true, Charlotte will get 1 or 2 days of snow a year. The mountains will get many more. However, when it does snow in Charlotte, they are not as prepared for the snow as schools shut down at the hint of snow and basic needs are diminished in grocery stores. I have enjoyed reading accounts of the snow from old friends on Facebook today. Friends in NC; enjoy the snow and stay off the streets, ha. By the way, it will be 70 degrees in Denver today, pretty ironic...DW

What I do

I get a lot of questions on what I do, who I work for and what do they do. I am a manager of technical support for a Fortune 500 technology company. In the presentation attached it will help explain who Avnet is and what I do. If you have trouble viewing this I can email it to you..DW

We have been off for the holiday's, except for a few social events. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone again tomorrow. Below is a picture of our small group...DW

So after a little pressure I finally joined Face book. Wow, was I surprised to connect with old friends so fast. To see old High School classmates and pictures of their families was really cool. I recommend it to anyone wanting to reconnect or network...DW

Happy New Year!!!

Wow, what a great time off. I am well rested and ready to see what God has in store for this year. I hope everyone has taken time to reflect on the good and bad of 2008. I recently read my sister-in law's (Stacy) blog and wanted to share a similar story. My youngest daughter Lucy is in preschool and I think she was a bit excited to go back to school. We were awoken at 3 in the morning by Lucy all dressed, pajamas folded and bed made ready to go to school. Betsy felt bad that she had to tell her it wasn't time yet and to go back to bed. Oh to be 4 and excited about school. It made me think that even though I knew I had a lot to catch up with at work I too, was excited to go back to work and thankful for my job...DW
