One for Each Hand

It’s funny the things you half-forget about your children – but are reminded of as new generations come along.

We had a get together today : my wife and I, our five children, seven grandchildren, and one great-grandson – two year-old Nicholas - who is fond of cookies.

Nicholas wanted a cookie for each hand , but seemed unsatisfied when he got his wish . Then I remembered: the correct “ one for each hand “ formula is : one cookie to nibble on –and then – one for each hand.

It’s the same formula his Great-Aunt Marianne “required” at the same age ; and, for a few moments, I was awash in memories – and regrets.

I’ve always wished I could have shared more of my children’s “growing-up” years – but you can’t always do what your heart tells you is right ;and like most parents , I had to settle for doing what I could.

We can’t always have “one for each hand” and one to nibble on.

Blog search engine Sphere targets relevance as key differentiator
Fellow "former VC who returned to the bright side" Tony Conrad kindly gave me a preview of Sphere , ex-Yodel Search, at the Web 2.0 conference, and re-kindly gave me access to the beta version of this new blog ...
taking care of a blog is like taking care of a dog. Always moving around, changing, attracting attention, getting dirty... I must say you do a fine job of maintaining this blog. It's very good and I'm learning a lot from you. Thanks.

please don't stop the great work you're doing.
my friends website is just starting > Dog Houses (nothing special really... might be good if you like dogs)

Good work! see ya.
