    Happy Holidays to Me

    I have just received some great news.
    After being unemployed since the middle of May, I start work the 5th of Jan.
    I am so excited (and tired of sending out resumes).
    My job will be the complete opposite direction from my wife's so no car pooling like before but to be employed again feels so great.

    Ned, that tabletop you gave me will still become a computer workbench this spring but it will now be for more of a learning area then money maker but will help with the new job. Thanks again.

    The holidays just got much brighter for me and mine.

    May the rest of you enjoy this time of year.

    Ralph,
    Super news! I'm glad the benchtop found a good home, but much happier that you got the new job after the 1st!
