    Hello Keith,
    I thought it's "Kahlifohnicated" now.

    Post or Priority Mail?

    My youngest got his BS in Mechanical Engineering a year ago. He was
    the "perpetual student", with near degrees in Chemistry and Business.

    What's he doing to make a living? He's selling real estate, and
    running several internet businesses ;-)

    Hello Jim,
    That happens more often than we think. One of the guys from my alma
    mater filed his masters degree away and started a clothes manufacturing
    business that is huge by now.

    A number of years ago I bought an Indian (Native American) painting in
    an art shop in Nevada City.

    The art shop owner had a PhD in Physics from Berkeley.

    He had shredded it up and made an interesting collage from it, right
    inside the entrance to his shop ;-)

    But life is what you make of it... if you go into ANY business BECAUSE
    it will make you money, you will fail. Choose a vocation that you
    like to do, and learn the joy of sleeping well.

    Reminds me that a classmate of mine, David Stare, MIT Class of 1962,
    founded and owns Dry Creek Vineyard, http://www.drycreekvineyard.com/

    Also, someone with no formal education can have a life-long career in
    engineering.

    Name sounds awfully familiar, I might know him from somewhere.

    Hello Luhan,
    One R&D manager was a former radio/TV repairman. Great manager, a bit
    tough on the guys since he also had a decade in the army under his belt.
    But things got done, and on time.

    Regards, Joerg

    Engineers can also be a bit rough on managers. Over the years, I've
    learned better social and communication skills. Once they get the idea
    that I'm really on their side, I generally get whatever I need to get
    the job done - even if what I need is more time.

    Did they happen to make those loading belts where they mangle your
    luggage as it's going into the airplane hold?

    If so, that's where I know him from :)

    I'm quite interested in the Yaesu FT-101B. Do you still have it?

    Sorry, no. I had to let the hauler take them away, and he said he'd
    donate them to a trade school or something.
