Absolutely, every single person who commented about getting laid off, said it was the best thing that ever happened to them...

I can say, with out a single note of reservation that the same holds for me.

I literally made the most money I've ever made in a year... getting laid off meant they had to pay me for my vacation time, they paid me a 5 digit severance package. I sold my house and made 33 grand on that deal. I moved to a significantly lower cost of living area and purchased a house for half the money of my last house. I've got a 15 year loan and the payments are 2/3rds what the mortgage was in Illinois.

The area is much more motorcycle friendly with the weather and length of season.

I can shoot my firearms in my back yard and no one gives a rats backside

I saw 7 deer on the way into work 2 days ago, certain 1 or 2 will end up in my freezer.

all good, and I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't gotten laid off and forced to move off my "comfy rock".

I'm doing nuclear work as I think it should be done, as I tried to tell my boss at the last place I worked... hey, this is the way DOE wants you to do things... soooo glad to be rid of him.

more as it comes but currently working a rotating shift schedule so when working nights... things get pretty slow after midnight... Gives me time to yack on the boards with ya'll
