Recent UBER Stuff

Jerryd Hayne – one of my celebrity passengers – returned to the lineup of the 49’ers yesterday.  I drove him and some of his rugby mates in October.  He was cut from the roster, but reactivated for yesterday’s game.  Apparently a huge rugby star in Australia, maybe his NFL career will take off.

One of the interesting…

What an interesting day!  This was last week, but just getting around to post it. First, a drive with Maigread Eichten.  She’s CEO and co-founder of The Well and Company (www.thewellandcompany.com).  Her start up has developed a line of healthy foods and supplements that seem quite interesting, though I really need to research them more.…
