    Great idea with that tea light candle Blaze, and I hope things work out with your job man. Your video wasn't that bad. I enjoyed it really.

    Most excellent attitude! Most of us have been there and survived. Still it sucks. All the best in finding that open window!

    The lady and I were just talking about "The Little Mermaid" statue this morning.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your job. I hope things are secure in your sector real soon. Take care man.

    Dude! LOVED the video very very much-thanks for the asked for and provided glimpse into your world.
    You are right--nothing is secure anymore, anywhere.
    Tea candle-brilliant and bright! HA!
    The red pouch on the ridgeline? also on your chest when riding?
    Hanging by the Zuiderzee-how cool is that!
    3 years before pension-happening over here too....sorry Blaze, you'll find the other door.

    Yep typical corporate B.S. I bet the top dogs got a big bonus for themselves in laying you guys off, plus now they won't have to pay you, your benefits that you worked so hard for.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.

    Peace,
    Thanks Syb.
    Yeah, that hammock got my full attention. It is in the line of back to basics.
    And basically, all my needs are taken care of at the moment.
    It is the resistance to change, that causes pain.

I have learned that no job is secure, you can be doing great until they call you in and tell you that they have to let you go. Best to think of yourself as an employee of yourself at all times. You are your own brand. I hope this termination had nothing to do with you receiving a pension.

    Stay positive, persistent and you will persevere through. I did in the end. Good luck!
    As the rules are now, it seems that I can retire at the age of 61.5 years. 1 month ago I could retire at 60.
    Change is the name of the game.

    Soon I will hang.

    BlazeAway,

    Its bad form to call you with that information as I'm sure it could have waited until your next work day. Keep the faith.
