The conference is only one day, so I'm hoping to have some time to take Adam to see all the sights of Chicago. We'll be spending the rest of our time working with my girlfriends' husband to do more training for search and online marketing.

All-Travel-Sites.com, a niche travel directory was just started to support the travel related aspects of our growing SEO business. As it turns out we have multiple clients in the travel business, so a travel directory will be a valuable part of those marketing endeavors.
The travel directory was set up using the PHPlinkdirectory 3.4 script. We have multiple directories, but this is the first directory using the 3.4 version. The user interface is very easy to use, as it does compare to the earlier versions that we have used. But it also has a lot of improvements.
The biggest improvement that I love is the use of blogging features, such as an integrated article directory and the ability to add comments to individual listings. I have been a fan of directories that use these commenting features for sometime, but this is the first one I have owned with this feature...All I have to say is...sweet.
Do You Have a Travel Site?
If you have a travel site I recommend that you head on over to the travel directory and add your site. For a limited time, free listings will be added with the "Nofollow tag" disabled for the first year. After a year the listing owners will have the option of upgrading or having the "Nofollow enabled".
Please feel free to add any travel related articles as well.

We did however get to do a little cruising around the State College campus to include a visit to the Penn State Creamery, which actually sells ice cream that is made on the campus as part of their dairy educations program. Individuals and organizations from all over the globe come to Penn State to take the Ice Cream Short Course, to learn how to make fantastic ice cream. And I must say, the Chocolate chip ice cream was delicious.
We also had the pleasure to eat at the Mad Mex restaurant for our evening dining on Saturday night. I had the most delicious Thai Curry Burito which had rice, curry of course and lots of pineapple.
We stayed at the Hampton Inn, and were very please with the hospitality we received. The brown bag breakfast was un-expected but very welcomed.
All in all, I would say we had a very relaxing little trip to State College, and I am sure that we will be back in the future, as my son will with out a doubt, play hockey there again.

It was a sweet day of skiing on this Park City Double Diamond. The view was sweet, and the powder was so light.

A friend of mine, suggested that I do wall squats, or at least that's what I think they are called. It involves putting your back against a wall and then squatting down so that your legs form a chair, then lift one leg off the ground and hold it for 15 to 30 seconds. Then do the same with the other.
In addition to the wall squats, I'll have to start doing some of the exercises on this video and on the SkiExerciseWorkouts.com website.
