The trip to LA for the reunion was epic, there were about 80 people there with approximately 30 people I grew up with and the rest everyone's extended family's.


I saw people I had seen for 30 years or more so it was awesome. The neighborhood Mom that her 90th birthday set up the event was all there (her memory was amazing she is old but mentally young) and being an Elvis fan they had an Elvis impersonator that did great and was very funny.


They had a mobile Mexican food cook who had an impressive set-up and was continuously cooking for about 2 hours.


I drove back to my room by LAX (Airport) that evening and did the quick return in the morning.


I was driving home from the airport it was early (about noon) I had my Golf Clubs in the car so I decided to stop at the course (it is on the way back) and got a fun round in. That was the first time I have teed off there later than the butt crack of dawn in years...:lol:

Got some bad news at work, they are doing a massive layoff in the US, they are eliminating an entire group in 3 phases or tiers, tier 1 in November, tier 2 in January and tier 3 in March.


It turns out the group being eliminated (Construction Management) and their work offshored to Mexico and South America, I was moved into in 2021. The group I was in (Quality) had been thinned down so much over the years that they moved us for ease of administration.


I am currently in tier 2 but you can get moved to a later tier. We can also take another job if available in the company but you cannot get bumped back in.


I still hold a Quality Consultant II title and myself and my counterpart do most of are work outside the Construction Management Team, in fact our only role associated with them is an oversite role. We are the Swiss army knife of the US operation we take on square peg tasks that do not fit in round holes and there have been countless special projects we have worked on over the past 12+ years.


There is still hope, several stakeholders who know our value have been pushing back but the bottom line seems to be since there is no “bump back in” the action will need to be moving us into another position in another group in which we can perform our same duties but may need to perform some new duties, which is fine.


Right now, I would figure our odds to be 50/50, but if we can just get moved to tier 3 in March it would increase our chances of being able to make a lateral move.


I am keeping my chin up and rising to the challenge as always, send me some good vibes if you have any to spare.

Keep our chin up Plook. Sure you will be ok.
if you want to head across the Pacific I'm drowning in work (have been for last 2 years) and my work can't find anyone to assist. Just pulled in $6 million in penstock orders in last month- all for new STP's in western Sydney due to massive growth in population there. We are desperate for staff, across Engineering (Mechanical particularly), QA, Sales and project management, etc . and Cohuna is great (if quiet) place to live. Our staff here(~70) include some from Chile, Iran, Sri Lanka and India.

tinkamok - I am backed up on tons of photos and may soon have plenty of time to post, hopefully I can avoid that. I really need to kick it into gear. I was going to go back and chronologically add them but may change my strategy and start with the wedding.
