One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead

Okay, so it was Monday and not Saturday, but I did finally make it to Zipperhead. Crash Bang Boom has actually been moved around the corner, but the signature zipper ants are still on South Street.

There was very little Dead Milkmen memorabilia, but I did pick up a few cute souvenirs.

One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead
I met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead

Punk rock girl
Please look at me
Punk rock girl
What do you see?
Let's travel round the world
Just you and me punk rock girl

The flight in was pretty non-eventful, sans the woman eating bell peppers as if they were apples fresh off the tree. This is not appropriate airline passenger behavior. What's next? Hey let's bring a pot of menudo on the plane or maybe some beef kidneys? What smelly food item can I eat in a closed confined area where it impedes the personal nasal space of the passengers around me?

Made it to the hotel in time for dinner, ran back up to my room to log in and work on some code reviews and email catch-ups. Then back to the bar to get a couple hours of socializing in. With SEC going virtual this year, I have lots of sym-socializing to fit in this week and in May. Networking in the community is one of the most valuable resources out there. I can't stress the benefits of user group attendance enough.

Woke up bright and early this morning, took a nice jog around valley forge national park, saw a few deer, and headed back to start my day.

On today's agenda is RepGen roundtable. Ray is stuck in Atlanta, so Ron is flying solo this morning - and doing a great job. So far the topics have been imaging, symform, PRN, and collection note creation. There's a great group attending the class this year. All levels of expertise and experience. Makes for a great discussion.
