 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
As of 31 July 2008, RETIRED!  For the 2nd time, first from the Navy and now from Abbott Labs.  Who knows for how long, but I plan to rest and relax for at least the next four months.  Then, maybe a fun job, something in the world of outdoors..... no more engineering, after 38 years I am just tired of working so damn hard.....all the time!
  
Well, it has finally happened....after three years of being retired and bored, I am going back to work.  Back into Engineering, running projects as an Independent Contractor, sub-contracting with a premiere systems integrator specializing in the most demanding pharmaceutical applications.....sounds like fun, Huh?   It is wonderful to be back in the workforce and being with so many people I already had known.  Feels like home!
