A Million Thanks to _You_

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. Millions of Americans will travel this weekend to be with family, away from the family, visit somewhere fun, or for some unfortunate few, be stuck at work or stuck in the traffic. Amid loads of turkey, stuffing and the oft-present alcohol, it's easy to forge the concept behind this holiday: it's about giving thanks. It's a day to remember, acknowledge and celebrate all those who made us who we are today, and offer our thanks.

I take this moment to show my immense gratitude to all those who have inspired and encouraged me to speak, write and teach. I have always been a mentor and loved to teach and write. I first presented in public exactly 14 years ago in Richmond, VA. My first published article came out later that year in New York Oracle User Group publication TechJournal. And my first book was published a year later. Since then I have had the opportunity to speak at 422 sessions in 24 counties, deliver 35 training seminars, write 517 published articles and 6 books. And, I could do that just for the support and inspiration provided by the readers and attendees who I had the pleasure of delivering the sessions and writings.

Here is a map of the places I presented. It's not complete; I put what I could remember.

I am truly honored to have you read my work or listen to me. For this I am thankful to you, dear reader, attendee or the visitor to my blog.

Happy Thanksgiving!
