well I'm officially retired now, sorta looking for a job but content to work in and around the house for a bit. My one task that I need to accomplish is to complete my VA claim and boy is that annoying....I have my medical record all 5 inches of it and I have to prove each issue that I am claiming and when I first had it treated....this is only the paperwork side of things i still have to get seen at the VA to finish everything....however given that according to the Navy I am Pre Glaucomis, have hardware in my ankle, and have obstructive sleep apnea Veterans benefits will help going to school this fall

Driving in europe.

OK one of the more enjoyable part of my job is the fact that I get to drive overseas. Part of this is due to the fact that I have had an international diving permit for 7 years now and another part is that I am actually used to driving on the wrong side of the road. (3 years in Japan). Go »
