    Update on me: Had some setbacks but am doing well.

    December 2018: started a "dream job" with a big company making lots of money
    January 2019: my dream job became beyond horrible. I was miserable and physically ill. Started sending out resumes.
    March 2019: bought our "retirement cabin" on 65 wooded acres in Northern Michigan with pond and stream.
    May 2019: got fired from my "dream job". No reason given.
    May 2019: reluctantly took a job with a major retailer.
    August 2019: I'm actually doing well with my new employer. They like me and I like them.

    Most importantly.... My wife sticks with me through good times and bad.

    Please, none of the usual “discussion”.
    Yeah, that kinda **** can get a person banned.

    What happened with the job you started in December? You were so excited about it at the time and all signs pointed towards it being a great move.
    "Why is that mirror sneezing?"



    "Ah, look, it's just an old, creaky mirror, y'know, sometimes it sounds a little like it's sneezing, or coughing, or talking softly."

    I was asking for specifics. Was it really that hard to understand?

    A gal in our class has an aikido background and when it comes to wristlocks, she's not one to mess with!
    Thank you. What art is it that you are studying?
