I wasn't here thru all your times, but wish you well just the same. It is important to be happy in your work, but it must provide a decent living also. Good luck!!

Good luck to you Ardge, hopefully the new pastry skills that you have picked up at this current job will enable you to apply for more positions.

Why don't you think about moving to Charleston, SC and opening up a pastry shop with me?

RJ... as a new comer (well, relatively, I have been with you guys for only a few weeks so far) I didn't know your situation, but from the advice you gave me on the whipped cream, I could see you were a very good professional. When I came across this thread for the first time just a little while ago, I read the first post and I was juiced up for a reply all excited and cheery, then I noticed the date... I read on and oooohhhh... nooo... I am soooo sorry to hear that. I also knew personally an excellent chef who was really very creative, but he worked for Chilis and had to follow strictly their formula, thus no chance for showcasing his real talent... I wonder how many chefs and their talents are being wasted like this. I guess when it comes to creative talents, this is often true, unfortunately. (like musicians, artists, actors...) Sometimes you need a sheer luck on top of your own talent... I really wish you for that, RJ, you deserve it... and some day, I hope you will be able to open your own place of your dreams... But for now just hang in there, and keep a keen eye for a better opportunity... I wish you the bestust!!

hugs!!
Licia
