Job search is over

21 Apr

Thanks to everyone who helped with referrals, contacts and support. The job search is over after about 5 weeks of serious work.

And to add to the hubbub, we are told one of the NFL teams will be having closed practice sessions at Stanford University next week leading up to the event. ¬†So besides being busy packing away the Pats flag, t-shirts, sweatshirt and scarf for the season, we will need to remind the kids to look both ways for crazy football fans, and team buses. ¬†Here’s to looking out for traffic, and forward to next season.
