    ok folks well just wanted to say that i start a new job on jan 4. will be going to work for firestone, better benefits, closer to the house, 15 minutes versus 45, and better chance for advancement in my opinion. they are starting me out as a c level tech but you gotta start somewhere right. im excited on getting back to doing some wrenching.
