    I think I win this one. Three lay offs in as many years. One school closing, one downsizing, one lack of cash to pay the peons.

    Hey Bill - that's some pretty awesome work there!!

    I run a company producing decorative tiles including some made from reconstituted marble - don't know if that qualifies as "cast stone" or not. If I can offer any technical insights into your:
    I'd be glad to - looking at your design abilities I doubt I could be any help in that area though!

    That's a fitting avatar, then. :D I just went through Sanger the other day... can't remember what for, though.

    I bag groceries. It's only car-related when I take groceries out and put them in folks' trunks.

    I'm retired now, but I spent 27 years with California state government. Rertired as Deputy Director of the California Department of Mental Health. Hard to imagine I would have survived a government career without the car hobby for a sense of accomplishment not often available with my day job.

    I'm a Banker.

    The only thing car related here is that I make money to pay for the cars AND I cruise the HAMB all day.

    Retired Ford tech. I work for an event management co. on cruise ships in Alaska in the summer, Caribbean in the winter, and spent last October in Johannesburg South Africa. I hope to get back in to the car event business as an ice cream vendor with my Divco by this summer. If not I will still be livin the good life on the high seas.

    I NEVER wear a suit except when on the cruises. With the FBI earpiece and the glasses people THINK your important and will jump when you give them direction.

    (OK, Now how do I abuse this newfound power?):cool:
