    Wasn't today, but thought it was worthwhile...

    Signed my offer letter this weekend. After 14 years of working in and around automotive finance and banking, I'm finally done.

    Had a very interesting phone call today, and may get a unique opportunity as a regional firearms affiliate for a cutting edge training company.

    Its a good sign when they say: perfect fit and resume in same sentence. Crossing fingers

    Apparently I'm one of the old guys now because I was just handed the keys to a brand new cruiser.

    I went from a crown Vic with 3 good tires to a fully decked out interceptor sedan with a new light package.

    Need to drive like an old lady because new cars are always crash magnets

    If it makes you feel better, my last car had a non-functional siren, no spotlight, takedowns that were pointed...down, and went from zero to 35 in about ten seconds. ;)

    My youngest daughter just found out that she passed her last MTEL. Woohoo!!!!!!!!!! It's always nice when your kids are succeeding in what they want to do. My other daughter was recently recognized for work she did with one of her students.

    Gave my notice today... And start officially on Monday in medical. Fuckin pumped.

    Comedy: Being pumped about a job on a law enforcement forum, that's not actually a job anywhere remotely close to law enforcement.

    The good thing that happened to me today is that I found my way back! Hello all! Busy day today as the mister is here for good and we're busy celebrating Father's Day - but I hope all is well with everyone. Speak to you soon!

    I try to take a few things from the elders every now and again! Also I care about what kind of career I want

    Yesterday I officially started a position to get my foot in the door politically. I've met a lot of great GOP candidates over the last few months, I've made a lot of contacts, and I've learned a lot about campaigning. After a successful event last night, I'm excited and encouraged about what's to come. It's going to take a lot of hard work to turn this state around for the better, but this year is the best chance we've had in a very long time. I'm beyond thrilled to be a part of it!

    grn3charlie No! My teeth are real. See?

    Been working alot of OT lately and haven't had much tie to spend with the family. Wife got to have a day out with one of her friends and I took the kids to get their haircuts. What I did not tell them was that we were going to Dairy Queen after and I got a little alone time with them. They didn't fight and were genuinely appreciative of the side trip.

    Just got an email telling me I might be in the running for a full tuition scholarship that guarantees me being sent to the Reserves/National Guard right after commissioning. Perfect for me since that's the path I want

    I spent part of the weekend trying to get the damn refrigerator fixed and I checked every single part and did everything I could short of adding refrigerant to it. Finally picked up a line tap today and added some refrigerant and it started cooling normally again. Bonus is that I only had to spend $4 since I already had refrigerant and a gauge set in the garage. :D

    Some weekend projects have to wait until Monday for stores to be open.

    So not to sound like a dope (but I will). Is freon the refrigerant for the fridge and did you add R134? Or, I'm guessing you have an HVAC background and can access that stuff?

    The refrigerator was made in 2006 and uses R134a...apparently a lot of refrigerators and freezers are using it now. I usually keep a couple of cans in the garage. :) If I was in a pinch and couldn't get any, I would just use propane instead. ;)
