Isabel update – healing and back to school

22 Aug

Menlowe-Ballet-nutcracker-dancers_lead-1Isabel Harding is back to school, and thinking big thoughts of dance and life beyond Paly.

She’s still convalescing, but is close to returning to the studio to get back into top ballet form.  She’s also broadening her artistic interests with more voice and theatre involvement, and related extracurricular activities.

Here’s a link to an article about her and her team from last season, celebrating her longevity in local ballet, as well as the impressive commitment in terms of training and rehearsals made by these dancers.

 

Henry’s stats from last season

22 Aug

Henry-jumbotronHenry Harding had a great season with the Jr. Sharks last year when he skated out, and tied as Point leader, with 24 points coming from 13 goals and 11 assists. He averaged almost 2 pts per game, through the course of the team’s 8-3-3 season, which resulted in a trip to the NorCal finals.

This season Henry is in goal with the Jr. Sharks 12U AAA team, which kicks off with the Tinseltown Tournament  Labor day weekend.

Link to his 2017 stats are on the NorCal website

Job search is over

21 Apr

Thanks to everyone who helped with referrals, contacts and support. The job search is over after about 5 weeks of serious work. I’m impressed by the number of great jobs available here in the Bay area, and by the innovation shown by so many startups. Time to shop for a new wardrobe… and a different car. 🙂

Looking for the Next Big Thing

9 Mar

20160302_094322If we ever spoke about working on the next-big-thing together, now’s the time to drop me a line and let’s pick up the conversation again.  And if we didn’t, why not now?    My latest resume is here, HardingTechProducts-Mar2016, and a quick overview is here.  Hope to hear from you soon!

Preparing for SuperBowl 50

29 Jan

football-trafficDespite the Patriots having lost a close one last week, we have no choice but to care about Super Bowl 50, coming up on Sunday, Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in nearby Santa Clara.  Along with the thousands of visitors coming to the Bay Area, we expect there will be more than a few staying here in Palo Alto.  $2,000 to $5,000 per night rentals still available on AirBnB!  (In fact, make us an offer on our cottage!!) And to add to the hubbub, we are told one of the NFL teams will be having closed practice sessions at Stanford University next week leading up to the event.  So besides being busy packing away the Pats flag, t-shirts, sweatshirt and scarf for the season, we will need to remind the kids to look both ways for crazy football fans, and team buses.  Here’s to looking out for traffic, and forward to next season.
