The Newest Bradley

The newest Bradley (my second nephew) arrived right on time (today was the official due date) at 1:47 pm (PST). He weighed in at 7 pounds, 11 ounces and was 20.25 inches long. Luke will be meeting his new little brother soon, the hope is that some cake and balloons make the process of accepting the fact that he is no longer an only child a little easier. Additional pictures (and/or a name) to come soon.

UPDATE: John Doe Bradley is now Levi Matthew Bradley.

Courage To Be You

Last night I had the opportunity to attend a special event at Bridgeway Christian Church in Rocklin. The event brought attention to the immense problem of sex trafficking not in Cambodia or Thailand, but in the United States, in California and in Sacramento. You see we thought slavery was abolished during Lincoln's time, but sadly that is not the case, it is estimated that more than 500,000 people within the US are being trafficked every day across the US, in fact one mom from El Dorado Hills even told how her daughter was kidnapped and taken into the "industry" before being rescued. All in all, this is not just the stuff we see in movies like Taken it is a real problem and a problem that many are trying to find a solution for. Right now in the United States there are only three houses for people to go to after they have been rescued (many end up in Juvenile Hall for their own protection), the Courage To Be You organization hopes to be the fourth and the first one wi…

Pajaro Dunes

With an address in Watsonville I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but my trip with Jen and her family to the Pajaro Dunes was full of beautiful sunsets, wildlife sightings, great walks and runs along the beach and some much needed rest and relaxation. As we drove through strawberry fields after getting off of Highway 1, I was thinking we were headed into farm country, until we pulled up to a gated entrance and I realized we were entering a resort of multi-million dollar vacation rentals, complete with tennis courts and most importantly beach access. After we found our Asian inspired beach house our weekend of fun began. We took long walks and runs along the sun drenched beaches, took lots of pictures of the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean, saw some odd looking "piggy banks" at SaveMart, had lunch at Pizza My Heart in Capitola, played Apples to Apples, saw an injured seal (and called for help), played tennis and just relaxed.

New Branding

I decided to give "MrAndrewBradley" a logo last night and since then have redone my resume and business card. Below are JPEGs of all my new promotional/collateral materials, constructive criticism welcome (black line on resume is address and phone number). As always, if you have any job leads please pass them along or let me know if you would like a PDF copy of my resume to forward onto your contacts.

In tracking how people come to my blog I have seen that when people are searching on-line for information one of the first places they go to is my blog. Although I don't always know why they click through, I do know that Google and other search engines give preference to blogs in search results, so this post is for all of you that come to my blog looking for information.

Sutter Street Makeover

I had the opportunity to visit Folsom's Historic "Sutter Street" today which is complete with old buildings, art shops, restaurants, a candy store and much more. I am not sure when the last time I had actually walked around the area was, I normally just park my car and mountain bike around Lake Natoma, but today I stopped and saw revitalization (see KCRA and Folsom Telegraph stories) in progress. The entire project is expected to be done later this year and I look forward to seeing the results and hope that Sacramento can learn something to when working on K Street and the railyard's.
