It’s been a few weeks since my last post and I thought it might be time to at least check in.  It has been rather hectic over the last few weeks.  Upon arriving home from our vacation, we were back on another plane in less than 24 hours for business purposes.  There’s been a lot of hotels, managing dirty laundry on the road and embedding really bad eating habits.  If I’m not careful, I’ll have to change the spelling of my name from Boris, to Borises. 

I headed back to my old stomping grounds this week – Vancouver.  DLC, Dominion Lending Centres, asked me to speak at their Owner’s Conference.  When asked if I would participate, the answer was quick – absolutely!  It’s a wonderful opportunity for me to meet with our customers and garner some insight into the cool and innovative things that DLC is doing.  Gary Mauris, Chris Kayat and Jay Seabrook of DLC have been very supportive of Merix, and if I can make even a small contribution to the success of their conference, I do so with pleasure. 

While in Vancouver, I was also pleased to be able to attend the 25th Anniversary Celebration of TMG, The Mortgage Group.  Wow!  I can’t believe how quickly time flies!  This is a homecoming of sorts for me.  Many, many moons ago, Grant and Debbie Thomas, Principal Owners of TMG, asked me to join their organization. I worked for Grant and Debbie for a number of years and upon reflection,  my time with TMG played a very important role in my career development and career path. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity they gave me and even more grateful for the enduring friendship which ensued.  Congratulations on your 25th Anniversary milestone!

Until next time.

1 Comments Greetings from Italy

Article written by on the 01 May 2015 in Personal

Off for a vacation in Tuscany to explore the sights, and of course the food and wine.  I’m not much of a wine connoisseur.  I know good from swill but the subtleties of wine escapes me.  It makes me giggle when I see people make a production of the wine experience, especially when they’re not far removed from Baby Duck and Mateusz, to each his own.

The trip got off to a somewhat auspicious start.  Air Canada not leaving on time, combined with having to catch a connecting flight in the most idiotic airport in the Western Hemisphere, Frankfurt, it’s no wonder we missed our connecting flight.  If you’ve never been to the Frankfurt airport, don’t.  It is very un-German like, meaning no order and complete chaos. I suspect the individuals who were responsible for gate placement, human traffic flow and security clearance, first had to ingest two hits of acid, and then when fully hallucinating, they put it all together.  A little Purple Haze by Jimmy Hendricks playing in the background would be a great pairing. 

I’ve been brushing up on my Italian over last couple of weeks.  I grew up in an Italian neighbourhood so it’s all coming back to me. Like the word for “sandwich” is “sangwich”, and you don’t “turn the lights off”, you “close the lights” And my favourite, yous guys, like “where are yous guys going?”  Who needs Google translate?

Depending on the amount of wine consumed, I may skip next week’s blog.  I suspect I’ll be too busy shovelling pasta into my mouth, my absolute favourite cuisine, and washing it down with some chianti.  I plan on working off the calories by walking daily.  In honour of our Italian hosts, when walking I plan on falling down for no apparent reason. My way of paying tribute to Italian soccer players.  Italy is going to love me.

Until next time,

    "I work in a world of numbers, process, execution, risk mitigation and all kinds of other sexy stuff. To share my thoughts, opinions and personal tidbits does have some creative appeal for me. It will also push me to do something that I am not totally comfortable with, writing. Get me in front of a room full of people to do a presentation and I'm on. Writing a story that others may actually be interested in reading sounds like a challenge to me. The reality is that I enjoy a good challenge and if it ends up that mom is the only reader of my blog so be it."
