A quick top 5

Here you go… MY TOP 5 U2 SONGS AT THIS EXACT MOMENT.
1. A Sort of Homecoming (the live version on wide awake in America)
2. I Will Follow
3. Love is Blindness
4. Running to Stand Still
5. Bad (The best 8 minutes in radio… also the live version from wide awake)
There are the ones that when they come on I find myself playing over and over and over. Sometimes You Can’t Make it on Your Own just barely missed the cut off and that is because it is on their latest album and the rest of these I have been listening to 15-20 years. But U2 is still making great music and deserve to be the biggest band in the world.

Where did he run off to now?

So a quick update on what has been going on in my world. (I am really tired so this is going to be quick)
We went on a vacation with Troy (my brother-in-law) and Jen (his girlfriend and my co-worker) to Newport Beach where she is from. We stayed with her parents who are some of the nicest people you could meet. It was a nice break from work. We didn’t really have anything planned while we were there which was nice. We went to the beach and did a lot of shopping. Avery was on my shoulders a lot during the trip and i think she really enjoyed being 7’2″ or so.

I think Avery believes she can fly

This weekend my dad and Sherie came into town. It has been a long time since we have seen them since they live in Florida. It was a great time to reconnect with them. They are doing really well down there. Sherie is still teaching and hoping this will be her last year. Dad is doing sales for a company that sales golf carts. They live in a large community where everyone drives golf carts like most places use their cars. It sounds like a perfect place for me since driving golf carts is the only aspect of golf I can do well. We are going to try to get down and see them within the next year… fingers crossed.
While they were here we went to see Grandma and Grandpa Ottley’s old home. Anyone who has known me over the years has probably been there at one time or another. They sold it several years ago to move to somewhere that didn’t require as much upkeep (it is a big and beautiful home up Millcreek canyon) The people who bought it are currently renovating it and it is amazing how much work has been done to it. Although the whole house is now covered in marble and elegant wood work I think it has kind of lost some of the charm that made it Grandma and Grandpa’s house. It was strange being there thinking of all the memories I had there growing up and what a totally different feeling the place has now. Well we still have the memories.
This weekend we also did a ton of work on our house. I really need a 3-day weekend to recover from this last 3-day weekend.
We are taking off a couple of days in 2 weeks to go down to Las Vegas and visit my friend Jeff and his family and meet up with Emily and Dale. (My sister and her husband) We are looking forward to another relaxing break for a few days.
My work has been crazy for a while now… actually since I started there, but we released out financial web portal www.finicity.com finally. We have been short handed in the marketing department but it is great to have it finally released and up and running. Check it out and I would love any feed back on the look, functionality or features. Join the community and have a look around.
OK I am going to sleep now. Take care.
