    HR, Barbecue, and a Blog Conference

    I am pretty much spending all my 'spare' time on two areas: HR (really HR Technology) and Barbecue. So for me it is great anytime I can combine those two interests. So a couple or quick notes on that front.

    First, Heather McCulligh from Halogen Software has a great post about how HR can spice up the annual employee barbecue (and thanks very much for the shout-out Heather).

    Second, Trish McFarlane from the HR Ringleader blog, Ben Eubanks from Upstart HR, Mike Owcarz, and myself and some others  have had a few conversations about creating an HR Blogger 'Un'conference.  A sort of casual, fun, 1 or 2 day event for the HR Blogger community to meet, network, and share their specific expertise to the larger group.

    What does that have to do with Barbecue? Well, we are thinking of having the Unconference in Cleveland, Ohio which is in driving range of Western New York which means I can easily haul along this:

    Yep, that is my baby and if we can pull of the Unconference in Cleveland I think I will try to come in a day early to fire up the Chargriller and do some brisket, ribs, and whatever else the HR Bloggers fancy.

    If you are interested in the HR Blogger Unconference, shoot Trish a note or a DM, she is the mastermind behind these evil schemes or check out the HR Blog Confernece wiki site.

    Ok, now you are really upping the stakes on this deal with the Chargriller! Would love to check out the site more but guess what - I am blocked. I know, hard to believe, but very true. Have a wonderful weekend Steve and relax after the move.

    Thanks Lisa for the comments. If we do pull this thing off in Cleveland I will definitely be bringing along the smoker and will be making some BBQ for the crew. Thanks for the well wishes and have a great weekend yourself.

    See Steve, now I HAVE to go. That's a mighty fine looking grill you have there.

    CCC- It would be awesome if you could make the trip, but would you have to wear a mask to conceal your true identity?
