Hi rose,

Do you like to teach?  You seem to know your way around the computer pretty
well, so I thought you could possibly get certified in the MicroSoft
products or some other programs and perhaps get into long-distance teaching.
Just a thought.

I only wish right now that I could plan on other career options, I don't
think I can stick it out for another 15 years or so doing transcription,
especially if I have to edit or code reports.  But I am not my husband, I
have no ability at statistics or math so getting back to college probably
isn't the answer.

I could teach jaws maybe but that would not make me much.

I was interested in your discussions of jobs becoming obsolete. One of the

support were becoming obsolete. I keep in touch with my friends at the
office and so far nobody in our small group of 3 has moved on; they took on
a lot of extra work after I left, but I made sure they knew how to do it; I
was real sorry to hand it all over to them, on top of what they already had,

but the bureaucracy was getting worse and worse, plus it was just too
tempting to go on pre-retirement leave. There was a lot coming down the pike

that I didn't like to see, including more lay offs. . I hope all of you can
hold on and keep going until you choose to leave for whatever reason. My
division was supposed to have five sets of lay offs this year, and two had
already occurred before I left; I think the third happened at the end of
