  • The Green Knight: Max the Ninja Dog
    t add up I grabbed Max s leash and squeaker toy and began running concentric circles out from our house calling his name and squeaking his toy Some neighbors offered to help me find him but they hadn t seen him either After I had canvased most of the neighborhood I still had a nagging feeling that Max running off seemed highly improbable so I returned to our yard to look for clues As I walked around the side of the houses to check the forest again I noticed a white cushion in our nextdoor neighbor s window a white fuzzy cushion I called out Max s name and lo and behold the cushion in the window moved it was Max He must have sneaked in while she was letting her dogs out Max loves her house because there are usually dog treats lying around at accessible heights Her dogs are much smaller than Max so he probably thought he could pull a quick one Once our neighbor returned from helping me look for Max elsewhere in the neighborhood she opened her front door to let Max out All s well that ends well but it was a pretty tense 30 45 minutes of not being able to find him Of course it turns out that he wasn t in any danger at all he was just earning his title of of Max the Mischievous Posted by Bryan Hassin at 11 42 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Max No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive

  • The Green Knight: 4th of July
    I feel more patriotic than I have in years not because I agree with the decision but because I feel like our system of government really did something right In recent years I ve found myself more and more apathetic about politics as I have become increasingly cynical that our political leaders do anything more than posturing This court ruling has really re energized me into believing that our country is able to progress with the times Moreover I m really happy that our country is asking and trying to answer hard questions Clearly we are a country that is still trying to figure out where it stands on such issues We have just allowed for one man to marry another man by a very slim 5 4 margin hardly unanimous claiming that Love is love But if a man wants to marry his cousin for example that is not allowed Love is love isn t quite so simple We at least in media rapidly accepted Caitlyn Jenner when she identified with a different gender but we also vilified Rachel Dolezal when she identified with a different race Where do we stand Where are our boundaries As a society what do we think is OK and what do we think we have no right to judge whether it is OK or not I think it s fine that we don t have all of the answers but I m glad that we re asking the questions The answers we come up with today might be different than the answers we provide decades from now they are certainly different than our answers of decades ago I think it s key for a well functioning democracy to question itself constantly So congratulations to my friends and loved ones who can now enjoy

  • The Green Knight: The Magic Forest
    seen before All around us up and down the trees and as far in the distance as the eyes could see there were mini strobe lights popping on and off at random intervals It reminded me of the stands during SuperBowl halftime as camera flashes would go off all over the place I m used to a few fireflies being around lighting up at infrequent intervals but this this was something else We walked slowly along the trail and then upon returning home turned off the lights in our house to see if we could see them in the woods behind our deck Indeed deep in the woods there were little fairy lights twinkling everywhere Truly magical I may be 36 now but I am far from too old to be awed by a little magic in the natural world Well done magic forest well done Posted by Bryan Hassin at 14 58 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels magic nature No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 The Magic Forest San Diego Day 3 San Diego Day 2 San Diego Day 1 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January 1 2013 32 December 2 November 3 October 3 September 2 August 1 July 1 June 2 May 2 April 1 March 2 February

  • The Green Knight: San Diego Day 3
    meet us on the beach I hadn t seen him for years but it was nice to meet his growing family and spend a little time in the waves As I was feeling a little subpar I took the afternoon off for a nap but rallied and caught back up with the group at The Flight Path for dinner It was OK but not terribly memorable The best part of dinner was catching up with a classmate I haven t seen since college We pretty much picked up right where we left off Unfortunately for the rest of our party where we left off was a pretty nerdy place since we were both computer science majors Before we turned in for the night we followed a hot tip to Extraordinary Desserts which was conveniently right on our way back to the hotel Wow did it ever live up to its name As we salivated in front of their dessert case there were easily 30 items I wanted to order Luckily restraint prevailed and we only got two the Dame Chocolate and the Truffe Framboise Oh my heavenly rich decadence That s right the day that began with dark chocolate gelato ended with dark chocolate cake I m sure it all helped my sore throat It was a quick trip to San Diego but we made the most of it I m so pleased to have gotten to know a new area of town Little Italy and I must say that I m pretty impressed More than perfect weather an active volleyball scene and great food though San Diego is home to several of our friends and that s what will keep us coming back hopefully soon Posted by Bryan Hassin at 22 08 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share

  • The Green Knight: San Diego Day 2
    Coronado In a previous life I used to spend the 4th of July with them every summer so it was wonderful to see them catch up and introduce them to Katie And yes the patio of the Del is a pretty fabulous place for such catch up Katie s sister and her husband flew in Friday evening so we joined them and went to see another old friend at the Belching Beaver Brewery Although our party mostly enjoyed our beers I was a little disappointed in the Peanut Butter Milk Stout It wasn t bad it just wasn t as epic as I would have hoped We wound down with dinner at Queenstown Public House which had been recommended to us by multiple sources My salmon was a little dry but all was forgiven when the side of bleu cheese sweet potato fries came out Day 2 in San Diego was another mostly work day but now that we were accompanied by partners in crime the scene was set for an all play Day 3 Posted by Bryan Hassin at 20 48 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels San Diego No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 The Magic Forest San Diego Day 3 San Diego Day 2 San Diego Day 1 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1

  • The Green Knight: San Diego Day 1
    lunch meeting at Monello very near our hotel in Little Italy Although it was hardly traditional Italian I couldn t help but be impressed by the quality of the food hand made pasta innovative flavors and all quite delicious When Katie returned from the conference we took advantage of the great weather and walked to around Balboa Park I hadn t realized that there were so many museums and other attractions in the park We could have spent all day there Instead we wandered around the rose garden and took a nap on the lawn not a bad way to spend a California afternoon Finally we wrapped up the day with dinner at Davanti Enoteca also near our hotel in Little Italy For a place that calls itself an Enoteca we were pretty disappointed in its very limited wine selection Fortunately it more than compensated with fantastic tapas style plates Our favorite by far was a savory house made ricotta served with grilled Pugliese bread and fresh honeycomb Mmmm It was an outstanding first day in San Diego but there was plenty more to come Posted by Bryan Hassin at 20 20 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels San Diego No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 The Magic Forest San Diego Day 3 San Diego Day 2 San Diego Day 1 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4

  • The Green Knight: Traveling in Switzerland
    in Switzerland runs on a tight schedule Make reservations and stick to them 8 Because Switzerland is so mountainous it is easy to change temperature climate in just a few minutes by increasing or decreasing your altitude 9 Because Switzerland is so mountainous many of the lower parts enjoy hours of false twilight in the summer The sun dips behind the mountains creating a magical twilight that goes on and on until the sun finally sets for real 10 Fondue is awesome and you should eat as much of it as possible while you are there OK now for some specifics 1 I don t really know anything about Interlaken but people seem to love it for outdoorsy adventures 2 On the German side Zurich is a great city but I don t know how much of a travel destination it is Nearby Luzern however offers a lot for tourists see my previous post about my trip there 3 Down in the Italian part Lugano makes for a fantastic little getaway It has more in common with Italian lake towns such as Como and Bellagio than it does with the rest of Switzerland 4 Of course the bulk of my recommendations are focused on Romande the French part of Switzerland where I spent the vast majority of my time My principal advice for this region is already summarized in a previous post My thinking has matured a bit since that post and I now recommend Le Chalet Suisse for the best fondue and view in town Also if you have a car a full on Swiss dairy experience is well worth the drive I hope this is helpful to my traveling friends and please let me know if I ve left anything out Posted by Bryan Hassin at 22 34
