Would love to, don't have the cash for it.

House problems last year + divorce this year took care of nearly all the savings account.

Let me know if you want a contact.
Is the plant in OKC doing OK? I know the one in IOWA is SLLLOOOOWW. The company I just worked for did a lot of business with them and in IA they are doing big massive furloughs.

However, I would love a contact there!

Google Zimmer, DePuy, or Biomet.
We need more car people!

I assume that was the Cedar Rapids company they acquired that builds asphalt paver machines. Terex pretty much drove it into the ground.

CMI is the outfit in OKC that Terex bought. They sold part of it off to Bomag recently but retained most of it. Terex is just a company that buys up other companies.

Touche!

There's cheap houses for rent in my neighborhood, too. And Monk is only 1:45 north of me.

I also have a guest bedroom. I should mention that it is also in the basement of my creepy manor.

That sounds way cooler than mine. And you have more kitties. And it has that added sense of adventure, might come with rape!

Ahh, got it. But if you have a contact there I'd love to talk to them. I'm exploring any and all possibilities.

Just wanted to say thanks to all of you guys who offered up help. It means a lot, I know we are only internet "bros" but still, I've received a ton of help.

I have an opportunity here in town, but I'm looking outside, mainly looking at Denver and Dallas (most jobs), would prefer Nashville/Portland/Seattle, but beggars can't be choosers.

Again, thanks to those of you who reached out, it really means a lot, especially given my last few months.

I really, REALLY appreciate it.

Have a good weekend gents.

PS If you run across anything let me know
