... of the new decade.  Yay.

Did you watch the Rose Parade this morning?  Of course you did.  And did you like the floats?  Amazing, huh, seems like they get bigger, better, and cooler every year.  And so which was your favorite?  Well probably - like us - you liked the Northwestern Mutual float featuring relaxing llamas, entitled "spend your life living":

Note only a great float (any float with llamas is automatically better, plus bonus points for the sunglasses and hats), but a great message on New Year's Day.  Great as it is, I don't think it is on the same plane as 2017's surfing dogs; that was a high bar and hasn't been threatened since.

So far I have spent my post-parade pre-bowl morning debugging software*.  Not sure if that counts as living, but if I don't debug it then tomorrow 400 people in my company are going to get an invalid email, and that will count as dying.  A big part of living is avoiding dying, when you think about it.

Are you a "resolutions" person?  I am, although I must admit I'm better at making them than sticking to them.  I won't reveal them all (yes there are more than one) but one I will share: try to stay high-level and not disappear into details.

Okay, so back to debugging then :)

(Oh and my pick?  Heart says Oregon, head says Wisconson.  Quack!)

* the root cause of the bug: 2020 is a leap year.  Sigh.
