The coffee mug to the right comes straight from Amsterdam. I stopped there back in November 2011 on my way to Germany on a work trip. It’s a dirty city with a weird vibe to it.Â Everyone smokes and you better watch your butt or you’re likely to get run down by a bicycle, which appears to be a popular form of transportation. I walked through the Red Light District just to say that I’ve seen it. It was disturbing and depressing. It’s sad to see that kind of thing in my opinion.Â Â Overall I didn’t like Amsterdam. You can have it. By the way, that’s a pretty big coffee mug. It hold a lot of coffee.

What a great weekend. The Super Bowl wasnâ€™t a blowout and turned out to be quite exciting in the end. The commercials werenâ€™t extravagant, but were surprisingly entertaining. The one downside was the absolutely embarrassing rendition of the National Anthem sung by Christina Aguilera. For all those would be National Anthem singers out there, please donâ€™t add to or take away from the National Anthem. When you do, youâ€™re doing nothing more than punching this great country of ours in the face.
Anyway, hereâ€™s some other stuff Iâ€™ve found interesting over the weekend:
2010 brought many new and exciting changes not only in my personal life, but in the world of pharmacy and technology as well. Iâ€™ve learned many new things, gained some new skills, made some new friends, explored the world of social media more deeply, traveled more than ever before and discovered that I once again know nothing. I am more excited about next year than I ever thought possible.
Below is a list of opinions Iâ€™ve gathered over the past 12 months. Some are pharmacy related, some are technology related, some are personal, and some are just random thoughts.
And here we go…
