I have a cheering squad

My daddy is great!

Well, actually, Elliot doesn't care one way or the other. I asked him if he was willing to move to the prairie; he said, "Okay."

I spoke with one of my colleagues today; she was at a conference last week and heard Richard Bolles, long-time author of the infamous What Color is Your Parachute, speak. I asked her what counsel she had for me with my search. What tidbits did she pick up from the master?

1. The Internet isn't all it's cracked up to be. Don't rely on it.

2. Know yourself. Write 7 stories, and then underline all the verbs. Use these stories, and highlighted verbs, to help figure out talents and skills.

Meanwhile, my wife says I need to lay low until Friday about the most recent opportunity. If they don't call by Friday, she said I can get back in touch with them.
