My husband is thinking the same thing lately. He will have 20 yrs in what he is doing now. He will get some retirement if he retires in auguast. But he is unsure what he wants to go into. He is only 40 years old, so he has many options. He is too grumpy working now and it is affecting us all. He is just worrying about getting a new job and insurance, with me and his son being celiac. I always tell him he can retire and i can work but im not well enough to work full time yet.

We use to talk about taking over the farm that we have, but now that I am celiac and so is his son, We can not take over the farm.

Oregan is such an beautiful state, i bet it is easy to take beautiful pics up there.

Yah, my wife doesn't qualify for early retirement until 2013, another 6 years...she works at the same company. At that time we will likely leave and never look back. With me it is not the work I do that is the problem. I need to feel valued, not like a piece of meat, and if I feel my company doesn't treat it's employees well, that bothers me. I've seen 25+ year employees let go and their job sent to China or India. IMO, there isn't much worse corporate behavior than that. Plus, it's the loss of much knowledge and experience just to save a $$. Don't get me wrong, I have as much vested interest in seeing my company be successful as anyone, I just don't like the human cost. In our society, greed is king, sometimes to sickening levels. You don

I think you can put a custom phrase under your stats on the left of your posts - rather than Advanced Community Member, or whatever is there now.

Not sure what else. Maybe we should create a list of demands. :D

Maybe we get to try to lead that cow down a flight of stairs...

Maybe Bill Gates will just pay for the installation of an escalator.

Yes, I think that 500 posts is a milestone worth really celebrating. We could have a Fortune 500 party...only those at 500 posts can come. :lol:

Carla is so happy that Susan remembered to have conversations with Jerry in the third person.

Wow, Emily forgot all about that third-person thing with Jerry...Maybe something REALLY magical will happen if I'm talking in the third person singular when I hit 500 posts!

Carla is so glad Emily finally remembered. Carla also can't wait until Jerry starts talking in the third person OUTSIDE of the forum and has to explain to his real friends that this is how Jerry talks to his internet friends ... they already think Jerry's nuts for eating gluten-free!

Susan is easily amused and is glad Carla is happy :lol:

Susan thinks that Emily can/may (Susan knows she is speaking to a language teacher, here:)) speak in third person singular BEFORE the 500th post. ;)

Susan does not like talk of sports on this thread about nothing. no, no, no. Well, at least it's not football. Susan HATES any mention of a certain team in her native town.

But I will forgive you the hockey talk.

:blink:

Um, it IS hockey we're speaking of, right? :lol:

Susan is finished, Susan is avoiding the dread task of extreme cleaning for houseguests, and if you see me on here again, SCREAM at me to go.

Harrumph!

Hmm, what will I put under my Avatar....good question!

I think perhaps something witty like:

"Testing 1-2-3"

"What the heck should I put here?"

"500 posts...now what?"

"Gluten for regularity"

"So much bread...so little time to spend in the bathroom"

"Gluten, when a laxative isn't enough"

So many options;)
