Hello Dear Reader! It's been a while since I had time to sit down and write out a Monday re-cap
This past week was my birthday week. With all the stress of the current modern world it was really nice to have some dedicated family time.
The fun started on my actual birthday, my wife gave me an amazing birthday present for me and my oldest son to go to the Mega-Con comic book convention this year!
My parents drove over and took me plus my youngest son to lunch at Yellow Dog Eats, an AMAZING BBQ joint nearby.
That evening the family went out to eat, we played games, checkers, and topped it off at home with a Double Fudge Coca-Cola cake. Not on the list of approved items for diabetics, but the goal is to have a little fun. This was genuinely one of my best birthday.
This weekend we went to Disney Springs with a group of 10 friends. We headed over to Splitsville Lanes and to go bowling.
The music was surprisingly good, food was solid, and the drinks were flowing. Which is good, because none of us will becoming professional bowlers anytime soon.
We walked around, enjoyed some live music, and because it was Disney, the shopping. Enough about that, let's move on to the recap!
We Had Paloma Garcia (Twitter | @PalomaGarcia40) Sr. Support Engineer from the Azure SQL PaaS Solutions team on the show! The theme of the show was IT Troubleshooting Skills!
We had a lot of fun, some insightful, and some surprising conversations. In a very lucky turn of events, I won the hosting duties and will be the host for the Tuesday show on 1/31/2023!
On Thursday we had the Community Round Table!
Our good friend Dan Taylor joined the show in place of Josh Luedeman who was out for the day. The guys surprised me by singing "Happy Birthday", very sweet of them to do so, and we covered amazing community content!
Here's a list of all the content covered in order of appearence:

Quick Programing Note: We have to move the Elfster show. Coordinating schedules with so many wonderful people can be tricky. But everyone who is on our list is exceedingly important to one another and we have to make sure everyone is there! So we are moving the Elfster show to Tuesday February 21st. So a little Christmas in February!
Alright Dear Reader, I'm heading out for some quick morning exercise before the day begins in earnest. We appreciate you and hope you have a wonderful day!
