Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

LANDED!!!!

The call came in today...They think I would be a good fit and THEY WANT ME!!!
The gal in HR said that they had to interview quite a few people, but they decided that I would be the best one for the job. All I had to do was pee in a cup and the position is mine. (I wish I would have known that before or I would have filled a 5 gallon bucket for them.) I start tomorrow at 0900 and after a week or so of orientation I will be out on the road and on my own.

Basically what I will be doing is visiting Contractors in my region (South Bend area) and selling them materials, making sure that deliveries are on time, and getting new Contractors to sign up for the Contractors program that Menards offers. It will be a base salary with commission bonus. I have been told that there are already several large accounts there that I will inherit when I take over the region, so I should be at a pretty good income level going into it. I will have a company vehicle and will be able to work the sales floor when I'm not on the road (WAY COOL). This job was really made to order for me, so I hope it works out. I have to admit that I'm a bit gun-shy after this last episode, but I'm going to remain enthusiastic and VERY thankful that God has blessed me with this new opportunity.

Thank you to everyone who has been praying and supporting Sherry and I through this turbulent summer.

I will try to do better with my blogging, so you should find regular updates here.
