For those of us in the Upper Midwest when we talk about the Winter of 2014 we say “WINTER” with emphasis. We think it’s funny when family and friends “down south” talk about how cold it was.

Thankfully that is past us now and across the state we had a most beautiful Memorial Day weekend. I posted some #LakeLife photos below…
Minnesota IT Jobs
I had a feeling it was long past time for me to start the Minnesota IT Job Board and while sure the short term traffic spike is curiosity more than anything else… I think the numerous email I received from recruiter and IT friends is a good sign.

Another round of job will be posted later this evening.

Memorial Day was cloudy much of the day with some late afternoon rain. Took another drive and came across this amazing view at Lake Agnes:
And today I am working before driving back to Minneapolis. Unfortunately… my Intern only associates me with walks, naps and lakes.
She does not understand the four letter word “work”:
