Quick Update

I am lame…There you go, I admitted it.

Last week I started a new job with a company called CarHelp.  I will be doing business to business sales introducing our network to automotive service providers around Oregon and SW Washington.  It’s a unique challenge being pretty much a start up company.  I am excited about it but it also means that I will not be seeing the family nearly as much as I have gotten used to.  Blogging will also be more of a rarity for now.  Soon I should get into a routine and get back on track with regular posts.

Never too late to learn something new, at least until you are dead.
