And why am I posting at 12:40am ? Life has been SO busy since the first of the year. The new job is a bit overwhelming, but I'm glad I made the move. The title "Engineer" is one I am earning on a daily basis. I've had to brush up on my math, go back and read a lot of FCC law concerning my industry, learn the details of the new modulation techniques my industry has implemented in the past 20 years - and then there is the challenge of learning how to cope and cooperate with the engineers around me at work, and those in Japan - they are a great bunch of people, but things are done so differently in R&D than they were in sales. And did I mention that I'm learning, all over again, how to write technical papers? I enjoyed my writing classes in college and earned a 4.0 in that area. But writing in my new department is a TREMENDOUS learning experience - this is tougher than school. My role at church has also demanded some of my time. With the school year starting, I've had to ramp up for the cub scouts and boy scout troops that I administer for. And of course, my car and my car club remains my 'out', my pastime. The big event is coming the first of October, our annual meet in the Smokey Mountains will feature no less than 70 cars. Not a record, but close - and somehow I am one of the three ringleaders for the event. Oh, and my car club gave me the Stoddard Award last month. I'm somebody now!
