Get Active and Eat Well

It's summer holiday season in Australia and I have been spending more time with the family, beach and unicyle. That's why I haven't blogged for 3 weeks.

My first blog for 2010 is to remind everyone that we need to keep active and eat well. I have had too many friends that have become software developers at the expense of social interaction, exercise and good eating. That was me for the first 5 years I worked at Microsoft. Long work hours combined with junk food and little activity. I have since learnt that you are a much more inovative developer if you keep a balance between work, family, exercise and social interaction. The good news is that you can recover, I did.

Yesterday, my second son, Sven, helped me create a video of my typical unicycle jaunt around Sydney's North Head. Take a peak at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpNslE5J3tI






Stay active and eat well.

Hi Richard. See the "Cover Story" photo on the left as you scroll down the page at http://www.capitaltimes.co.nz/. The guy in yellow has the same colours, and of course you wouldn't need your tights in the warmer weather of NZ. But not you I gather? :-) Have a good 2010.

Ha, unfortunately, I can't own up to those legs. Actually, I didn't make the unicycle worlds. So I will have to find another excuse to visit Wellington.
