    Spring Break

    Hey all, it is spring break for us poor college kids. Figured I would check in and check up on the gossip.

    No really hard classes this go around, but a bunch, none the less. I even signed up for another mid-term that starts when we return., PLC Advanced.

    Lets see, I got a smart phone, Motorola Atrix 2, sweet unit. Good apps out there in the electric field. Kindle fire, which I have mode those same apps too. Had a couple great interviews, one for Toyota, which I declined, distance was just too far. Couple more promising places are calling. The world is looking up.

    Haven't had much shop time until this week. Right off the bat this morning, I drew blood, so I predict a good week.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    It's good to hear you're doing well, Steve! If I don't draw a little blood each time in my shop, I think I'm slackin'!!!

    Man, if you keep getting smarter with all this education, we're gonna have to start calling you Poindexter.

    Good to hear school's going well, and equally good to hear you're getting a bit of shop time.

    Glad to hear from you Steve. Congrats on another milestone passed, and good opportunities in the future.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    PLC Advanced, eh?

    Hope you're up on you Boolean algebra - you know, all that OR,NOR, AND, NAND stuff? Simple once you get the hang of it, but plenty confusing until you do...

    Good luck with it!

    Boolean is easier than the real stuff. Never was one to care how many X's it takes to make an X.

    Congrats Steve.

    It is great to hear from you again. Glad you got your PLC; whatever that is (Pretty Lady Coming, Pretty Lazy Critter, Post Learning Catastrophe, etc.). Now you can Post Long Communiques on FWW and keep us all entertained.

    All kidding aside; it is great and we are proud of you!!!

    Enjoy,
