By default, my latest blog posting will show below. A list of links to more of my blog postings follows just below the full-text blog article.

Today is my (Josh Lyon) birthday and the interns did their individual final presentations today. 3 of the 8 interns were working for me on on a new platform that we will be rolling out to customers in the near future and all their presentations were awesome. We had a great group of kids this year and I was really happy to be involved with the program this year. I learned a lot about my management style and they all taught me a thing or two. My best child-hood friend's (Travis') mom is taking me out for dinner tonight, so I don't have time to make a big blog post, but I wanted to make sure I posted this up.

The photos from the Anheuser-Busch brewery tour in Colorado have been posted. Aaron (my brother-in-law) took about 150 pictures, but I posted the ones I liked best. It was fun getting to go through the tour and see the beer brewing process, but the best part was at the end where we got to taste the beer (2 beers / person). I tried their version of a Guiness as well as a beer called the Harbin.

We also got to see the Clydesdale's after the tour. The horses are HUGE and were really excited to see us - think "red rocket" like a dog or "now I know why they say 'hung like a horse'!" I saw a lot of pumps and valves throughout the plant but never asked who made the pumps (eg. if they were Flowserve's). Click the image below to view the pictures:

Brewery Tour

We're in Loveland, CO for an extended weekend to visit my parents at their new house. My parents recently moved up here for my Dad's new job at McLane Co. To keep my mom happy, my dad bought her a big house. I'll try to take some pictures before we leave and post them when we get back.

Madeline, Laura and my friend from highschool in Plano, lives out here and is visiting us today. We are going hiking in just a few minutes, going white-water rafting tomorrow, and are going for the brewery tour sometime before we leave. Sorry for another short blog-post, but it's better than nothing, right?!

I've uploaded some of the pictures from the visit to my parents house in Loveland, Colorado. We went hiking at Rocky Mountain National Park and went White Water rafting on a Wanderlust Adventure down the Poudre river. Click on the links below to check out the albums.  Also, remember that I now have two slideshow options in my gallery. You can view a full-screen slideshow from the root of each gallery (eg. where you are looking at all the picture thumbnails) and a regular slideshow as well.

I promised Alex that I would upload two of our favorite flash videos: Mario Twins and End of the World.  You can find the Mario video at the following link: Mario Twins

The End of the World video is below. It may take a few minutes to load on slow connections as it's somewhat large file (around 3MB)
