I've been missing in action here due to work and travel (work and personal) and posting is likely to be light until the end of 2010. We are also having home internet network problems so it is difficult for me to access the internet at home and I don't like to blog post while at work.
But, I do have good news to report. I have received a 5% salary increase. Yay, yippee, yeehaw!! Just a year or so ago, July 2009, I had a 10% pay cut (everyone in my company took the cut due to the economy). In January 2010, I received some of that 10% pay cut back and in March 2010 I was returned to my full salary, plus I received my January 2010 step increase in March 2010. I hope this means that the economy is improving. The news doesn't seem to be any better and Florida is especially hit hard by the real estate bubble.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season and I'll be trying to do some more regular posting along the way but I need to earn that raise the last few weeks of the year.
