Lounging around Party Cove... I love to do that!!

I love teaching. Did it for a couple of years. Thinking I will try to get back into it.

I also liked my job as a quality engineer.... I am good at building raport with customers/suppliers.... I was good at it, but low man on the totem pole... you understand.

Well I work in the Automatic Temperature control (ATC) field which doesn't quite jive with your field. However in Middletown De. Johnson has a battery manufacturing plant. It looks like it is a UAW site (I don't know if thats good for you or not). Again I know you don't want to relocate but I'm just doing what I can...

They have great benefits...and are 1 hour from the Atlantic or Gulf..

Cost of living is extremely reasonable..

Reversing NAFTA is going to be VERY difficult for any politician. Kerry keeps saying he's going to do it, but he dosen't have the power to do it, and he knows it. Just campaign rederick. Sorry to hear about your job though. Best of luck.

Sorry to hear about the bad news Mike. I know what your going through. Thats how I ended up here in Florida. Dont regret the move or the new job search. Sometimes these things can be a blessing in disguise. Follow the advice of everybody else and keep your chin up.
