Protection One Downsized

For the past several months there has been rumors about the new investment firm that recently bought Protection One. The rumors came true today, and Tyler's 4 years with Protection One Security have ended. The layoff was wide spread and despite the heart brake, Tyler was pleased with the severance package and the nice talk he had with his boss before departing for the last time.

This is the first time in our lives that either of us have had to deal with a lay off, either us or our parents. It's been scary, it's been stressful, but it's also been educational, and we can finally stop worrying.

Tyler has already began the process of seeking out a new job, and has several strong possibilites so hopefully the down time won't be to long term.

D-Backs Game

Thanks LifeLock for these great tickets! We had great company with Jenn and Justin. To bad the D-Backs lost. I am beginning to think I am bad luck when I actually go to the games as we always seem to lose.

Meed, Month 1

Tyler just started my first batch of Mead (honey wine). Now we just have to sit back and wait....18 months. I can pop a top in 9 monhts, but from what I am readying 18 months makes it best! I will start another batch as soon as I rack mine from the ferm. bucket into a charboy. I want to try some flavored stuff (vanilla, orange, maybe an apple...) we will see.
