SQL - Overlapping Dates

by Leonard
Every now and again, I write something where I really impress myself. Today, was one of those days.  I had this problem where I need to retrieve all the events where the dates overlapped another giving date range for the purpose of rendering them on a calendar.  All the events and data are...

Married!

by Leonard
Well, I actually did it. I got married. I know, it almost comes as a surprise to me also. I do have to say though, that I couldn't be happier. The wedding was a HUGE success. Everyone got along, there was no drama, people danced, people sang, and we all had a really great time. So a big thank you to... [More]

Less than a week

by Leonard
There is now less than 1 week until the big day! Crazy! I am excited. Friday we had the Bachelor/Bachelorette party. It was pretty low key at a local karaoke bar. We had a great time. We bought a photo printer and a web cam to set up our own photo booth. The software we found on the Windows 8 store ... [More]

Reclaiming my Wardrobe

by Leonard
You may have heard that I got a new bike. Yesterday, I rode my bike to work. I made it the 6 miles in 35 minutes, which is faster than the bus I am on at this moment. The ride home was a bit more difficult. Actually a lot more difficult. I took me 50 minutes to get home and I had to walk ¼ mile of i... [More]

Little by little

by Leonard
Ok, so after 2 weeks, weight loss is not going as well as planned. You may have seen me post on Facebook yesterday about 96 calories. I discovered that's all it takes to gain (or loose) 10 pounds. If you eat 96 calories too much every day for a year, you will gain 10 pounds. The good news about that... [More]

Keeping up the good fight

by Leonard
I took yesterday off to heal a little. I think my body is going to need some time learn how to deal with this new activity level. I am sore all over right now. My legs haven't felt this sore in I don't know how long. On the other hand, I have more energy, and my body decided it was time to wake up ... [More]

Weight Loss Goals on Track

by Leonard
This morning was the first day this week that I have not worked out. Instead I slept in for some deserved rest, and then took the trash out. Yesterday however, I burned over 1000 calories in workouts. I did 3 – 40 minute cycle rides where I have pushed up the difficulty on the bike from levels 2 – ... [More]

Getting Healthy day 3

by Leonard
Yesterday I did a light workout in the morning because I was groggy. Today I decided to power through a vigorous workout. I have to say, they are right when they say a morning workout can boost your energy levels. I haven't felt this alert on the morning bus in some time. Ready for the good news? ... [More]

Time to get Healthy

by Leonard
Ok It's been a while since I wrote anything on here, and now I have a good reason. I've decided that it is time to get healthy. They say you can tell what is really important to a person based on where they spend their time and their money.  I think there is a lot of truth in that.  So, I'... [More]
