Happy New Year

I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year!

Carol and I are now (fairly) permanently back living in our home in Sedona Arizona except for three planned trips to visit family. Working at Google in Mountain View last fall was a fun and very interesting experience but it is good to be back home. Even nice hotels get tiring after a while.

I usually make new years resolutions, but this year there is not much to change. I would like to get back to a (mostly) vegetarian diet. We have also been drastically reducing the amount of gluten (and wheat in general) from our diets. I also intend to get back to hiking 10 to 15 hours a week like I used to.

When it comes to work and continual learning, I don't really have any specific new years resolutions. I am getting back into Clojure and ClojureScript (and looking at the Reactive libraries). I am also still interested in how the Java 8 rollout will go. Except for working on code examples for a book project I am not doing too much work in JavaScript right now. I also think that I will continue my trend of more often using Clojure instead of Ruby for general programming.
