Ah Spring.  I love this time of year.  Except here's how my typical week goes.  Monday - Friday, the weather is warm and beautiful.  I know this because as I sit in my home office working, I can see how lovely it is outside.  However, once the weekend arrives so does the rain, cold and wet!  I can't seem to catch a break.  It cuts into my running time for sure!  


Anyway, let's get on with the Salesforce April 2019 Tech Update shall we?
