A New Day, A New Job

So…  I didn’t formally announce this before, but I quit my job and jump into another one.  I started working at SIkorsky Aircraft today.  For those of you who has no idea what Sikorsky is or what they do…  Well, they, or shall I say we, make helicopters.  I work on specifically the Seahawks of Navy Program.  It is quite interesting and it looks like these babies are going to keep me B.U.S.Y. 

Besides the new job, I don’t have much of anything going on.  I’m still knitting the market bag for Schaefer, but it’s almost done.  But until then, I’ll distract you from something I saw from my friend Robin‘s blog…
