Pomerol

Pomerol, f#cking awesome!  The food was delicious. John was our server, great. Rocky made us want to spend the whole night at the bar. The chef brought his "A" game. Wished we lived closer, would live there.

There is no good reason to watch football. It's a brutal sport. It has long term consequences for it's players. Along with NBA, MLB, the NFL puts its employees in untenable positions.
For everything that's wrong with football, there are of course a number of good things. This is one of them


Everyone is talking about Kanye West. I'm thinking about Childish Gambino.

"I could only have seen it there, on the waxed hardwood floor of my elementary-school auditorium, because I was young then, barely 7 years old, and cable had not yet come to the city, and if it had, my father would not have believed in it.

"The Black National …"

"The Black National …"
Song title: Lift ev'ry voice and sing

Stony the road we trod,

"SAP is now finally a leader in marketing. Who would have thought that?" SAP Hybris CTO, Moritz Zimmerman, in his keynote to the 2017 SAP Hybris Global Summit had just highlighted the company´s appearance as a leader in the latest Gartner magic quadrant for multi-channel marketing.
And indeed, SAP Hybris, the commerce arm of the German software giant, is finally talking about being — among other things — a "marketing cloud." It´s been a long time coming. Tracking the progress of Hybris over the last fewyears, I´d perceived an avoidance of discussing the whole marketing cloud space — an emphasis, instead, on front office microservices.
