    New job

    Some may call me crazy, but I quit the state and it's wacky prison system. Got to the point I couldn't stand it anymore. Won't go into details, but you probably get the idea.

    Started at the local foundry, yep hot, very hot, but hourly pay almost doubled. Will be working a lot a weekends and holidays, but the coin is large there as well. They treat their maintenance guys pretty good and their electricians just a little better.

    Look for postings of new toys soon. Maybe even a new shop in a year or so.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

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