Summer funk

Ahhh… summer in Silicon Valley. Marine layer mornings (great for a quick game of sun free tennis or a long bike ride or run in the foothills) followed by cloud free afternoons (just right for a dip in the backyard pool). Our evenings cool off perfectly, allowing a quiet neighborhood walk and time to catch up with family and friends.

I think of it often as I drive to and from work and grind out another day of long hours usually capped with early morning and very late night calls so all my India and other Asia buddies can conference at times when we are all at least partially awake. 
 
Summer in paradise…  a missed opportunity yet again. It could be worse… I lived in San Diego for years where it is paradise weather practically all year round. There I had to think about what I was missing every day of the year instead of just half the days each year.
 
My friends in the upper mid-west (America) are getting soaked; rain has been drowning their cities for weeks. My friends on the east coast are baking; breaking temperature records every day.  I envy their misery. They can labor through a 14 hour day and be glad they are inside.
 
Our memory IC’s are selling like hotcakes. The value we bring to our customers continues to grow. Our business is building. The future is bright. But, oh, what a summer funk…
 
Until next trip. Grant
