    Congrats on the job. But more congrats on your obvious stick-to-it-ivness. Not everyone could put up with that farmer guy.
    Good for you.

    That is great news. We all spend so much time at our jobs it is a shame when it can't be at least rewarding if not enjoyable. Did you take the opportunity to wait till your old boss was in mid-cuss to stop him, look him square in the eye and say "you know what you want, why don't you do it?" and resign? I did that at the one job I've had that I really hated and it sure felt good ;-)

    Real good news David. Boy I was reading your story and thinking you must be a saint for putting up with the farmer guy. Sounds like he should be put in jail for slavery and abuse. Heck its the 21 st century not the sweat shops of old England amazing he let you off on weekends. Or should i say let you out.

    Real good to hear you landed something that you like and has decent fellas.

    Wish i was a fly on the wall with the farmer when you told him you quit. But then you cant afford to go crazy you never know you might have to be back with him if something ever goes wrong.

    Best of luck at GBP Its all sunshine from here on.
    cheers
