How exciting for Smurf. Born in the USA and now flying to the United Kingdom. This is cousin Jeffrey's first time flying. Woo hoo!!!

Yum yum .


Smurf in Starbucks

During conference every Starbucks coffee shop had queues out the door. These amounted to a 30 minute wait for your morning fix. Smurf suggested we wait until after the conference to get ours and he was right - no wait for this one.

Good soon!

Smurfs Cousin Jeffrey

Well Smurf arrived in San Francisco by teleport and is being re-assembled ready for Day 2 of the conference.  On Sunday, however, Smurfs American cousin Jeffrey arrived.  Their meeting will be a smurfin one so watch this space.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Smurf missed the flight to OOW 2012

Well it's Oracle OpenWorld again and I find myself in San Francisco again.  Sadly.... this year.... without Smurf.  Some amazing technology is at work to try and get him here before the conference finishes. Let's hope he can make it.

So, until Smurf arrives in USA, I'd like to introduce you to a new friend - Plimsoll.  I met her last night at a movie (Cars 2) and taco evening with the Marion's and she agreed to stand in for Smurf until he get's here.

Like a seasoned IT professional she makes straight for the coffee. Exactly what was needed during the first session of the day on Java.

More from Plimsoll later.

BIG BIG thank you to the wonderful Marion family for a nice evening.  I hope we meet up again over the weekend then I can share with you the biscuits you bought for me.  Biscuits with my name on  -  nice !!
