Since my "retirement", move to Nuernberg and getting married, I'm having a few new adventures. I thought I'd go back and resurrect the Blog to keep track of all the new stuff.
So late in June last year (2012), I think it was, I got a call from my boss at Siemens. As soon as he said hello I could tell what was coming. "Due to fiscal restraints the group in Malvern will need to be reduced... ... ... and your position, along with nine others, has been eliminated... ... ... severance package... ... ... last day is September 14... ... ... unless you are able to find a new position within Siemens... ... ..."
Well I could hardly contain myself. I was already planing to retire at the end of 2013, so this news just accelerated the deal, which was just fine by me.
The next several weeks after "The Phone Call" were spent figuring out how to go about not working and moving to Nuernberg Germany.
Now you may be asking yourself, "why in the hell is he moving to Nuernberg?"
Pretty simple really. I traveled back and forth from Malvern, PA to Erlangen, Germany for work. Over the few years of doing this I met a lovely women at Siemens in Erlangen - Judith Regn. Over time the relationship became serious and you can figure out the rest.
What with "The Phone Call" Judith and I decided it was time for me to make the move to Nuernberg.
Over the next few weeks I will start to post some updates on what's been happening, so please stay tuned.
