Falling...

The first hints of the arrival of fall are noticeable this week. I have been in Albany in upstate NY and took the train back along the Hudson Valley. A few flashes of red were just about visible on some of the smaller trees. I haven't seen New England in the Fall yet, but I'll certainly take a look this year. New York city is slowly cooling after the baking summer season. It's still up to about 27/8 C during the day, but nights are much more bearable at arounf 18-20 C. A very pronounced cold fro

Been A While

It's been a while since I blogged. I now have an apartment in New York. Just out in Queens with a good subway link to Manhattan. Work is already taking me around the US. Spent a fair bit of time in Chicago which I love. I'm currently in California about 40 miles North of LA. One of the perks of this job is that I can go for a drive once I finish work in the afternoon. So far this week I've been to Santa Barbara, Malibu and Beverly Hills. It's interesting being in what is pretty close to being

Eating The Big Apple

Having visited the US for the first time in February, the start of April found me back in New York on business. All part of a cunning plan by a Project Manager to persuade me to stay with the current company! I was doing some work in Connecticut, which everyone tells me is beautiful. The place I stayed, Waterbury, kind of ruined that image! Much of Connecticut is beautiful: golden trees, winding valleys, cascading rivers, but Waterbury is a run-down industrial town. One train every four hours ch

Back In Blighty

So I'm back from New York and little seems to have changed here. People are still desperately hoping for some cold weather, the chances of which are obviously reducing with each passing day. I know it's supposed to get cold this week with the small possibility of snow for some, but after my experiences in New York I simply will not be able to get excited about an inch or two of snow any more! The week went thus: Saturday 11th Feb: First leg of trip was from Gatwick to Raleigh/Durham in North Car

How Long?

How do some people manage to keep a diary for each day of their lives? Surely only drama queens can commit something to paper daily (or hard disk these days) as nobody's life can be so interesting? Anyway, a crossroads approaches. At least, I'm approaching a crossroads. Many months of hard work in helping to release a new piece of software is coming to a head and I'm currently implementing in anger. Quite literally. Development ignored many of my requests and error logs, so the same issues which

So...

What does one normally write in one of these things? Is a blog a diary, or is it a place for posting opinions? I'm undecided. My life isn't interesting enough to serialise; it's unlikely the Sunday Times will be offering me a five figure sum to hear about my trip to Hillingdon on Thursday. So what is an average day for Whitefox? Well, the alarm goes off at 7.30 (it's only a short drive to Hillingdon, should only take 45 minutes) and I wisely decide to press snooze. I haven't had breakfast for a
