Licking Your Heart – The Musical

Licking Your Heart is not your typical happy-go-lucky musical. It doesn’t make you wanna dance in your seat or sing along with the crowd. With the plot taking place in a 1945 war torn Breslau, which during the play officially changes the name from Breslau (German) to Wrocław (Polish), this musical does transform you to…

GOVECS Supplier Forum

Late last month I attended my very first supplier forum. The feat itself was ever more rewarding since it was for a project that I am currently leading. Because GOVECS is a fairly small company with very start-up roots, our projects and scooters often don’t get the attention and consideration of other high volume customers…

January Resolutions

It’s been two weeks since New Years Eve and I’m still trying to figure out how to write the very first blog post of 2017. On one hand it should be grand, something spectacular to set you, the reader, up for what’s to come later this year. On the other, with no grand subjects in…

Sunday Brew & Tacos

On Sunday we stopped by the “City Brewery”. The defunct looking complex of redbrick buildings actually used to be a brewery on-again, off again, from 1894 to 1996.
