Back from a little trip

We made a trip to the Twin Cities this weekend.

We headed up there to attend a surprise birthday party for my brother. The reason for all the quiet here is that I didn’t want to give it away. My brother was definitely surprised.

Besides the party, we did some shopping, strolled through the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and put up drywall in my brother’s basement.

Yesterday, Edward Tufte was in Minneapolis doing one of his lectures. I decided to take the chance to see him. I really enjoyed it. I will share my thoughts over the next couple of days both here and at the 800-CEO-READ blog.
