This week the Foundation for Enterprise Development had its annual end-of-year Christmas party on Wednesday. Unfortunately, I missed it due to a mix up with my schedule.
However, I did hear from several sources that the party was a good one, and I’m sorry I missed it. Many of my old friends and colleagues from SAIC were there, and the Great Room was jam-packed with people.
One of the highlights of the evening was a sneak peek of a new short film that the FED is producing on employee ownership. I am looking forward to seeing the completed product sometime next year.

In addition to my Friday cruises on Solutions and my road trips to some local sites of interest, I have been watching a lot of films and reading many books at home in my office. I just finished watching Gone with the Wind, which I enjoyed, and I have ordered a copy of a new book, The Price of Civilization. It has received some good reviews in the media, and I look forward to reading it soon.
Betty and I are also making plans to see Jesus Christ Superstar at the La Jolla Playhouse sometime this month. The musical is directed by Des McAnuff, who had great success taking a number of shows, including Jersey Boys, from the La Jolla Playhouse to Broadway.

It has been very cold here in San Diego lately, which does make it feel like Christmas is in the air. I hope you are enjoying the season.
