Summer summer summer time time to sit back and unwind

Here it is the groove slightly transformed
just a bit of a break from the norm
just a little somethin' to break the monotony
of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
a little bit out of control....


Preach Fresh Prince preach. time to sit back and unwind? We'll see. Here begins the blog of what can now maybe be called my annual Summertime Activity List blog post. It's already been a busy busy Spring Twenty-ten with big fun at the BEP concert, a truly global Ignite week, two wild road trips and 1 major conference. This is a list of stuff to I plan to do in 2010 with family, friends and colleagues and away we go!

Camps!
Still noodling this one, but the kids are more interested in summer camps this year. Suggestions welcome for Soccer, Music / Guitar / Drums, Art, Science and Skating. Here are the camps under consideration.

Concerts!
Music events to rock that body. Who is coming to entertain you/me this summer?

Films!
Yes, films are important enough to plan for - this is summertime!

Conferences!
Networking, speaking, listening, learning... and comic books.
