Guten tag from Montana

Alles gut! All is good here. John and I are working, trade show season for him, still jammin' for me. Lauren is working with me four days a week, hanging with her beau Jeffrey most of the time. We are "weathering" the cold, having many fires. The pets are fine. Pretty much the same old same. Love to all.

Hello from Colorado

We're happy to report that we both enjoyed a SAFE and mostly relaxing week skiing in Breckenridge. No falls, no injuries, and I even dipped into a few baby mogul fields just to test out my knee. All the physical therapy and working out paid off! Yes Dad, we brought our work laptops and both had to do a little work (me more than Ned), but we tried to minimize it.

The weather ranged from -11 the first morning out, to blowing snow like crazy one day, to sweating in our ski gear, almost spring skiing. We took a few days off to just relax, which was nice. Ned attended the annual Ulr Parade through Main Street Breckenridge one evening while I was on a teleconference for work. Ulr is the Norse God of Snow, honored at the same time each year. I really believe it's an excuse for the locals to drink a lot and act silly in public. Although this year seemed more tame than usual - no guys running through town wearing only a wool sock strategically anchored by duct tape.

We hope everyone is well, and ready for a great 2009! We'll post pictures soon.
Love to all, Laurie
