    I no longer work in Broadcasting.....

    The 3rd was my last day in TV Broadcasting. I was a Broadcast Engineer from 1995 to 2012. Long time and I enjoyed it but it was also very frustration at times. Over all I liked what I did, it just felt like I was at a brick wall.

    Anyway, today, the 5th was my first day in the new career, Field Service Engineering for a medical company. I will be working on linear accelerators. In other words, the machines used in radiation cancer therapy. And it's taking us back to the Memphis area,

    Today was a travel day. I flew from Indianapolis to San Jose California. I will go through orientation for the new company and fly back to Indy Friday. We will be moving down to the Memphis area the last week of March.

    San Jose is vastly different than Indianapolis or even Memphis. San Jose is part of the San Francisco metro area. Liberal does not even begin to describe it. I got a bite to eat after checking into my hotel at a Subway sandwich shop. Next door to the Subway is a Vegan restaurant. I've not seen a Vegan place to eat before. Maybe I should try it one night this week since I seriously doubt I will ever see one in Memphis being as it is one of the BBQ capitols of the USA.

    The first 3 weeks will entail a lot of travel. Then in mid May, I will fly to las Vegas for 6 weeks of training. This is going to be more travel in the first few months of this job than I have done in the almost 20 years since I was in the Navy.

    It goes without saying that I am completely unarmed out here. Not even a pocket knife. And I do not like it one little bit.

    Congrats on getting back to Tennessee. I had lunch at a vegan couple's house one day not too long ago. It was actually really good. I would never take a "meat alternative" when the real thing is an option, but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Congratulations, be prepared for a major cultural shock in CA I am sure there have been tremendous changes since I was there from 1975-1984. There are some fantastic places to eat at and some of the strangest people you will ever meet.

    Thumbs up Congratulations in Order

    Congratulations, Mike! I am very happy for you. I was in California once and ordered veal, and my hostess almost impaled me with a look. She did not eat veal, and let me know that was quite barbaric. So.....be careful if you go Vegan, but if you do, report back, if you survive.

    I was born and raised in Fremont, just 20 miles from San Jose. You're definitely in the middle of a lot of federalized-socialists in that area! Good luck! I wouldn't go flashing your NRA card around out there to too many people....

    Try the grilled Kelp & Tofu burgers (seared over a HOT recycled newspaper flame) ~ brushed with celery sauce & topped with organically grown lettuce, tomato, & onion.

    You'll never go back to traditional meat based Bar-B-Que again.

    You've still got your most powerful weapon, crank it up to 11 and stay safe. Best wishes.

    If you have time Frisco is worth the trip. Fisherman's wharf is pretty cool. The seafood is good too.

    Congrats!
