The 2014 Iditarod race begins today in Anchorage, Alaska. It’s hard to believe that it has been three years since I was at the 2011 race. Time flies. (Original photo is here on Instagram.)

Almost 1/2 of 'How I Sold My Business' is now free online

Before I moved to Alaska, I owned and then sold a small business. During the process of selling the business -- which took several years -- I kept a small diary.

New AlvinAlexander.com website

I just realized that I completely converted my old website, devdaily.com, to alvinalexander.com, without saying anything here. Since that's where I am most days, I thought I should mention it.

Iditarod sled dogs, 2013 race

This is a view of some Iditarod sled dogs during the 2013 Iditarod race. The photo is from the Anchorage Daily News.

If you're interested in the Iditarod race, check out Dallas Seavey's Facebook feed. His video of a large collection of sled dogs howling at a rest area is terrific.

While my friends and family have some pretty good ideas, such as going to Vegas, I keep thinking about going back to Alaska. Despite what the sign in this photo says, you can find some excellent food in Seward, Alaska:
