I don't care much though, I've got a job to do and I'll do it where I'm told to do it. I know what you mean about myron not being on the radio anymore. I loved listening to him when I went home on leave, but all good things must come to an end. I got the sunday ticket though which I've had for 3 years now. It's DEFINATELY worth it. Plus, all the guy's I work always think they know everything that happens because they saw it on the sportscast lmfao. What do you do at holloman?
i manage the custodial contract. the govt cutbacks are hurting us bigtime. they trimmed our budget by 40%, roughly half a million annually. last friday i had to lay off 13 employees, cut the hours of 16 others. we had 11 who werent affected. in the meantime there will be about 100+ bldgs that are gonna go to crap. i hear holloman may send cannon its centrifuge for fighter pilot training to help give it a mission. just rumors though. i believe its one of a kind for the air force. that may help. my dad grew up in pittsburgh and at 18 joined the military and got stationned here. same story with you?
