Thanks everyone. Tom, that's a hard quote to live up to. I need you to lower your expectations. wink.gif

So here's the plan. I need to find a job before August. At the point that I'm employed again, we will finish out the theater! Can't wait. If there was an award for most determined theater build, I would have to be in the running...yes?

In other news, I don't know if I posted here, but my processor went out again.mad.gif Remember a year ago it went out and was repaired under warranty. Well now I have the same issue. Long story, but I faught Integra for 3 months for them to cover this repair too. They finally accepted, but they sure didn't want to. Anway, they've had it now for 2 weeks.

Congrats Tony, av equipment will come and go but you'll always have that degree! Now the question is what are you watching in the theater to celebrate? "The Graduate"?

Good on you Tony. Its quite an achievement and you should be rightly proud. BUT....... this marks your last day of having legitimate excuses for not getting your theatre built. So. .... put any moulding up lately??????

Just a side note for you... The amount of time you are without your equipment while it is being repaired... Extends your warranty by that amount of time it is in the shop. This is how it is on a car warranty and I am assuming it is the same for Audio Equipment.... Although it may be a State by State Law..

For some reason, I am no longer getting notices that someone posted here.

Thanks to everyone for reviving the thread and, once again, embarrassing me!

I've got 16 class days left before finishing my first year as a teacher! I ended up teaching 6th grade Science in a Title 1 school. Title 1 means that it is a school with over 90% of student receiving free lunch (low income area). For my school district, it's as challenging of a teaching environment as you will find. Despite this, I've had a terrific year! A main purpose for my career change was serving people, and there are opportunities for that around every corner. smile.gif

There has not been any progress in the theater room. We've managed to use the room only once a month this year. That should improve over the next few years though, as I get my feet under me with the new career. I thought I would have finished the room by now, but have lost interest with these new turns in life.

It's looking like another year before we finish the room.

My wife too is a teacher in a title 1 school and has been for years. She's now moved out of the classroom and is a reading resource for the school and loves it. There's nothing like being an influence on students that come from less fortunate homes. Lots of sad stories but loving on these children and helping them to understand they can rise above their circumstances is extremely rewarding.

Congrats on the start to the new career Tony - maybe some students could earn community service credits by helping put up crown molding?
