    Ultra is outta here!

    Got your attention?
    I guess that is a misleading title; however I do have a "wink" for the message icon.

    It's been a great couple of weeks.

    First, my wife works for a company called "Sterling".
    They are owned by Signet of the UK.
    They are the largest retailer of fine jewels in the world.
    Every year they hand out 10-12 Excellance Awards to people.
    Out of the thousands that are employed, my wife won one of those awards.
    One of the gifts is a 7-day (all expense paid) Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas (the largest cruise ship in the world).
    So, we leave tomorrow morning for our vacation.

    Second, I finished my degree last August and moved into the electrical part of the company I have been working with for the past 10 years.
    What we do there is not really what I want to do.
    The job just started dragging me down and I was pretty depressed for the longest time.
    I search daily for other job opportunities and came up with nothing for awhile.
    I saw that our local electric company had a great position open.
    I applied, tested, and interviewed and got the job.
    They are a Fortune 200 company, the 6th largest public utility in the US.
    The pay is outstanding as are the benefits.
    I really got lucky with this one.


    So, yesterday (Friday) was my last day at my old job.
    Now I go on a cruise and relax for a week, then start my new career with a ton of opportunities the Monday after I get back.
    I feel that I have been truly blessed.

    So, I will be out of the loop for a week.
    I will try and check-in here and there.

    Everybody behave now!

    Have fun Ultra!

    It will probably be like the movie Home Alone around here.

    Congrats on the new career.

    Have a safe & enjoyable cruise Ultra & congrats on the new job.

    BTW, who will be locking, merging & moving threads while you are gone? You did the majority of it.

    You also need to post a few more "Smileys" to tide us over until you get back.

    Wouldn't Ultra-bastard be more politically correct?
