Dinner with the Skrockis

Over the Christmas Break my wife and I got the chance to have dinner with Linda and Mike Skrocki.  We had a great time getting to know one another in person, but in a way it was like meeting old friends since we've followed each others blogs from the get go, are twitter pals, and have even shared an email or ten.  They are great people so if you get the chance to take Linda up on Resolution #7, I highly recommend it.  Mike won't even care if you wear heels.

One Sun executive once said referring to blogging "Just make sure we are not talking to ourselves".  I'm here to say that in a big company with a large distributed workforce and many who work from home, talking to ourselves is actually a good thing.  If nothing else (and there really is so much more to it), it's good for morale.

More silly pictures on Linda's Flickr Page.  Most of the evening is under a bi-lateral NDA, but I will fess up that I was beaten twice by Linda in bowling.
