Hello. It seems that this and the other forum I have joined likes introductions.
I am a retired chemical engineer. I retired 5 years ago with a retirement plan that consisted of living in my vacation house (Astoria, Oregon), sitting in my recliner, being stoned all day and just reading good books. I thought it was a most excellent plan and was fully committed to it. However, after 5 years, 40 lbs., a couple of health issues and a house and property that is getting a little rundown, my wife somewhat firmly indicated that I might consider a new retirement plan that is a little more invigorating. So my new plan is to drop the 40 lbs., hire someone to cut the trees that grew while I was stoned in my chair (homey ain't going to do that kind of stuff anymore) and involve myself in activities that are a little less drug and recliner oriented. Ergo I have returned to school and am getting a degree in computer science. Don't get me wrong, I have no intention of ever returning to the work world, but with this my wife has calmed down (happy wife, happy life) and I do have something enteresting to do.
So, hello and What's up?
