    Damn, Steve, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you're able to find some good new job prospects soon. Don't be a stranger. This seems like the kind of place where people help each other out a bit when the need is there.

    And, V-ret's right on top of it. Good man.

    Keep your head up brother and focus on the blessings you do have. Jobs can sometimes come and go but are easier to find once lost then any of those things in bold. FWIW I'm down in SW FL and we were #1 in the country for growth and construction which means when the bubble popped we were hit first and hit the hardest. We were on the edge of bankruptcy and losing absolutely everything for more then 5 years. We too wondered if or when things could ever get better. Finally within the past 12-18 months things are turning without a doubt. If we're seeing it down here, then everyone else should see it before long if they aren't already. Hopefully you left the company on good terms (I'm sure you did) so don't be surprised to hear back from this company when they do land those or other projects. Hope it all works out for ya man!

    So I go into work Thursday night, and the president of the company is there (small family company, so president and co-owner), he calls me off to a conference room with the shift supervisor and tells me that since I'm the newest full-timer, and the company just doesn't have the business he was expecting right now, I'm being let go... The two major projects he brought me in to run haven't taken off on schedule, on was pushed from July to September, now to November or later, the other one is just being drug out and they still don't have a new solid date from the customer... So I'm the first one to go. Half the shop went down to 32 hours a week, but everyone kept telling me "they never let people go for low business, they never lay off", yeah. Guess there's always a first time...
    I keep hearing our Liar in Chief talk about the improving ecomony, seeing the data not quite back up those claims... But I'm here to say the ecomony still sucks. My company made lots of stuff for Cummins Engine Co., which currently has a worldwide hiring freeze on... and quite a bit of medical equipment pieces, which are also dropping due to the pending new Obamacare crap, which is going to cost doctors and medical equipment companies more money... Ugh.
    Ugh. Just ranting and whining. Haven't told my parents or my son yet, as I didn't want to ruin everyone's weekend, so just bitching to bitch...

    I feel better... a bit.
    Man, that's awful and I'm really sorry to hear that... But, not to be disrespectful.... "liar in chief" and "Obamacare crap".... Is this really the place for that?

    I'm more of a cat person, but I wouldn't hurt puppies...

    It never ceases to amaze me how something said in a thread could be cleared up and buried, then someone has to bring it back up.

    I'll go ahead and state this for the rest of the guys looking at this:

    Steve, as Terry and others have said, you got a lot of good going for you right now also. Keep your chin up and all should work out. You already said that you can get through this. I for one and rooting for ya!

    It's called a Caucasian Ovcharka, or Caucasian Mountain Dog, from what I've read, they were bred for two purposes, hunting bears, and protecting families and herds. And apparently even though Chows are known for being territorial, they don't have chit on these guys. Apparently their owning family are family, and anyone else is a meal...

    And apparently a lot of the size can be fluff, because the average male is "only" 150lbs. or a little over...

    What's their life span? Mixing dogs usually cuts off half the life span due to improper development. I have to really worry about those boys living short lives...
