    Another friend is retiring soon at Intel and for whatever reason it reminded me of Dayna when i was thinking about it right now. Dayna was the very first person I met at Intel when i started in 2001. She was the Admin (with a capital A) of our Yield dept in Fab22 and I called her when I showed up on my first day. She kept me in line for several years after that; she was absolutely fantastic to work with and I am so sad she is gone. Cheers Dayna!!

    p.s. – totally freaky all these dates jumped out when i read this = Jan 28th is my brother’s birthday, Feb 11th is my Mom’s birthday, and Apr 15th is my wedding anniversary.
