Started out in local 57 Birmingham Alabama in the Mid 1980's and transferred to Tennessee in the 1990's. worked at ORNL most of my career. Just waiting on 5 more years for my full pension. If I work steady and don't lose any hours that is. Need 60 thousand hours and I have around 50 thousand now. Just counting down the time.

Currently volunteering Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays at nearby elementary school and absolutely LOVING it! I could never hack it as a teacher, but helping out with math and reading, mostly, grading papers and making suggestions ...

They can't not pay me enough not to refuse to come in! (I think that's right...).
