I keep forgetting that I don't say much here anymore. Looking back at my last few entries, I see I've left some topics unfinished. Time to correct that.
In case you hadn't heard already, the NUMMI automotive assembly plant will be closing for good in March 2010. However, my employers will survive this. If NUMMI had closed in March 2009, we would have been doomed. Since then, our non-automotive business has rebounded nicely. We'll be able to continue on that basis, though we'll be a much smaller company than before. I am unhappy that so many good people here will lose their jobs (or already have), but my job is safe. Since this job fits me perfectly, there's no reason I'd be happy if I lost it!!
I'm still following the Giants. In fact, Dawn and I are going to tonight's vital game vs. the Rockies. Vital? Eh, I think they're still too far behind to make the playoffs. I'm not sure I need the added stress of having my hopes raised again, either. We'll have fun tonight, though.
At any rate, I don't really have anything interesting to write about baseball these days. I'm happy to let pros like Grant and Lefty do what they do so well, and concentrate my limited energies elsewhere.
This year has been draining in so many ways. I've been and felt much less creative than I'd like. This will pass when the stresses from this year fade, as they must. To anyone who's waiting for me to resume some of creativity (and there are several people), thanks for being patient with me.
If I forget to update this again for a long time, just e-mail me if you're wondering what happened to me. (If you don't have my address, just leave a comment here.) I wouldn't be surprised if I forgot to post again for months. :p
