    And the ax falls . . .

    Just got my two weeks notice at work. At least they gave me that. I've been at the same place for the past 12 years. It should be interesting hitting the job market again, especially with the economy in its current state.
    Anyone near St. Louis looking for an architect / planner?

    Sorry to hear the news. My Nephew is an architect in Denver and in the same boat.

    Sorry to hear the news Paul. Well think on the positive side of things it just gives you more time in the shop to build things. Hmmmmm maybe it is time to get that lathe you have always wanted and start spinning. Oh sorry that was me.
