Musings: Some differences between Apple and Microsoft, part 2

Every Tuesday at Apple we would get deliveries of fresh fruit to each of the breakout/lounge areas. Every day at the cafeteria there were free apples for people to grab with their lunch. Every Tuesday and Friday morning (I think) after Steve got cancer there was delicious organic vegan broth you could pour into a cup and sip. The only thing we had to drink was Allhambra water from huge water coolers. The division I worked in usually had doughnuts once a week.

Drove in the Snow for the First Time: Lessons Learned


This past weekend was interesting for driving.

I went to Casey's family's holiday party on Saturday. There was an option to spend the night there, which was appreciated since snow was in the forecast. It wasn't snowing in Exeter, so I figured I could probably make it back and it wouldn't be too bad.
