Waiting for a neighbor who owns a truck to get home so I can go get my dishwasher. Then I have the angst of installing it. These things don't always go well for me.

Thanks. You are right. I love the food buisness, but am tired of the transition and lack of job security in the restaurant game. Looking for something institutional with some long term security, if there is such a thing anymore.

Just got back from the grocery store. I bought 2~1 pound packages of 90% ground beef. They were on special for $3.98 each. As I was ready to leave the store I looked at my receipt and noticed that they rang up wrong, they rang up at $4.58 each. I went to the service desk, they checked it out and they did ring up wrong, so I got them free. Please everyone, check your receipts.

That sounds like it would be interesting. I would think it could provide many different paths for employment working with almost any age group. I think people will probably continue to make bad food choices until well after you are ready to retire so it should be secure!
Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck to you Rocklobster! I did the same thing in 1982. Went back to school for Electronics in a two year course and ended up working at an aircraft manufacturing facility, testing newly wired Jets and installing black boxes for 15 years before again switching career paths to Database Designing and retiring from it after another 10 years.

Not bad for a guy who started his working life as a dishwasher in a restaurant.

I hope your new adventure goes as well as mine did!

Thanks, folks. There is still a lot of stuff to sort out. Just starting the journey. Sounds like a great oppurtunity. Now, if it is actually doable.
