Hey all!

I’ve been out of touch so far this summer.  I lost my step mother in May to cancer.  From a professional standpoint, you may know her as Cheryl Holmes, CFO of Holmes Hi-Tech NY in the 80s ans 90s. Best detective I ever knew.  Things are good and the family is coping fine.  After that, my nephew (and official mini-me), Jake Holmes (son of our fearless President Jason Holmes) graduated high school. So Wifey and I headed back to Plano to the IPCybercrime HQ, did some business and saw Jake do his thing.  Then we brought him back to Venice Beach for some fun. Cases have been coming in and we’re closing them with great results. All else is good. Summer has been breezing through and this is my first post since April.

I’m thinking about different ways to deliver content (podcast, YouTube, etc.).  Let me know what you may be interested in.  I definitely want to continue to be the only one who gets you your IP news in a fun way.

Now, I’m going to finish my coffee.
