Just returned from Gulfstream in Miami where our colt Backbackbackgone was fast early and slow late.  He had some breathing issues, so he stayed behind to have minor throat surgery.  At least the weather was fantastic, and Sean Gerson hosted the team in a beautiful suite with lunch and open bar. 
The executive placement business continues to be slow.  I have to work twice as hard to make half the money.  Although it’s frustrating to get phone calls from people that forgot my name and would not return MY calls the last three years, my heart still goes out to them.  Not a good time to be an "executive in transition."
Next on the agenda is a trip to Los Angeles and Orange County where I’ll visit with clients and host a Godfather "Sit Down" at the House of Blues West Hollywood.  From there, up to San Francisco to host a second event.  Finally, over to Las Vegas for week of client appointments and Oscar Night America (Academy Awards Party benefitting The Arthritis Foundation).
From a balmy 75 in Miami to snow and ice in Lone Grove, Oklahoma.  That was kind of tough to take!
