MVP Award

Received my notification via email this morning that I've been recognized as a Microsoft MVP for SQL Server. It's been a goal of mine for a long time and I'm glad it is finally accomplished. Like Andy Warren, mine wasn't so much posting in forums but probably more so related to the authoring and presenting activities that I was involved in last year and will continue in this year. My family and I did a lot of traveling (for us) last year hitting Jacksonville and Orlando, Florida for SQL Saturdays and Miramar, Florida and Florence, SC for user group presentations. We were on our way to a SQL Saturday in Greenville when Kim got sick. Later in the day the bug hit me, too. So I guess for those attending, it was good we missed, but I still wanted to get there and present and meet up with some folks.

 If at all possible, I look to get out more this year and my new job position at AgFirst may accomodate that better. Saw some history, had some great family vacations around those trips, and anything I can do with the family, I'll look into doing. Ones in SC, NC, GA, and FL I will definitely look at trying to get to. AL and VA and TN after that, especially the SQL Saturday in Birmingham. Need to swing by Montgomery and see some folks I haven't seen since 2009. Folks from my Air Force days who I've stayed in touch with.
