This is a great place over in Portola Valley. The facility has over 250 military vehicles including tanks, armored cars, artillery units, and other vehicles. It’s incredible. Apparently, the owner, Jaques Littlefield, was sort of a military nut and apparently wealthy enough to allow him to procure his own armada. Littlefield has passed away but the facility remains in operation and does tours by appointment. I took Riley and Quinn today with Riley’s Scout troop.
We visited Perry Farm over in Ardenwood today to get some pumpkins. They have all the traditional fun things we like going here for, including the mountain of straw, a small hay maze and some displays.
Unfortunately what they didn’t have was good pumpkins. So we left empty handed.
Here are some of the better photos from our trip to Disneyland last weekend. Notable is that some of these are from my new iPhone 4S and comparing them to my Canon DigitalElf camera they are essentially indistinguishable.
Last week I was in Las Vegas for the JiveWorld 11 conference, put on by Jive Software (we use their social business platform for an employee community at work). I was recently added to Jive’s “Jive Champions” program of customer advocates, and in addition to appearing as a “speaker” on a panel discussion of Champions, Jive also had a few of us do some speaker introductions on their Mainstage presentation area.
These photos of are me along with Tim O’Connor from Ashworth College. Tim got to tell people about the upcoming events for the rest of the day, and I spoke about the dinner program later that evening. Lots of fun to see yourself on the big screen and in the middle of a giant conference hall with over 1000 attendees.
