Zum Glück waren wir vor 2 Tagen auf der Loipe ...

Neuigkeiten vom Lift: "Der Wetterbericht hat wieder einmal recht gehabt. Massiver Wärmeeinbruch mit Regen, echtes Schietwetter."
Hoffentlich wird es nächste Woche wieder kälter!

IBM sells three different BPMS

BPMS Watch:
"BPM involves process (Websphere), information (FileNet), and people (Lombardi).� Now we have a separate BPMS for each of those. Isn’t that great? Ummm, no."

Couldn't agree more with Bruce.

Pfalz

Last Friday we took advatage of the kids being taken care of and went some 60 km west towards Deidesheim. That evening and on Saturday we spent some great hours enjoying views like this. The weather fully co-operated. I shouldn't miss to point out the fabulous dinner at the Deidesheimer Hof.

Easter on the sled

Just returned from a relaxing Easter weekend in the Black Forest. More observations to follow later. Just a few impressions can be found here:

Our last stop on this extended weekend trip was the Steinwasen Park:
There begins the rapid descent. Get a sled and enjoy "toboggan fun" during the summer.

Weekend on the slope

On Saturday morning, we looked out of the window and had this view.

 

 

 

A little later, Julian and I headed out to the nearest slopes less that half an hour from our home in Wilhelmsfeld. On Saturday we took the green slope. Today I was quite impressed with Julian as he managed to finish the red slope (10 km) in a decent time and without any complaint.

Bruce Silver's has written a White Paper about SAP NetWeaver BPM

SAP Network Blogs: "Don't miss Bruce Silver's latest white paper on SAP NetWeaver BPM that 'explains SAP's place in the BPM landscape and describes its new offering in that arena'. The paper addresses the challenge on how to provide end-to-end business processes that go beyond organizational and geographical boundaries, i.e. how to provide a 'holistic view'."

Obama Pressures Wall Street Over Bonuses - NYTimes.com

Obama Pressures Wall Street Over Bonuses - NYTimes.com: "“There will be time for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to get bonuses,” Mr. Obama said during an appearance in the Oval Office with Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner. “Now’s not that time. And that’s a message that I intend to send directly to them, I expect Secretary Geithner to send to them.”"

Very different statement about values than what we saw during the past 8 years in the White House.

Gefährliche Rückstände: Mediziner warnen vor miefender Raucher-Kleidung - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wissenschaft

"Man kennt das: Wer mit einem passionierten Raucher im Fahrstuhl die Kabine nach oben teilt, kann riechen, dass der Kollege oder die Kollegin zur Zigarette gegriffen hat - obwohl diese längst erloschen ist. Denn Gestank und giftige Stoffe haben sich in den Kleidern und Haaren festgesetzt."

Irgendwie hat mich der Rauch in der Kleidung auch am nächsten Tag nach einem Kneipenbesuch schon immer gestört.

Cross country ski

Today, we used the public holiday in our part of the country to visit Gernsbach - Skigebiet Kaltenbronn for some exercise in the winter. Julian did great and just finished his first 6.4km slope on skis (me, too, by the way ...)!
