One thought on “About Me

  1. I was web-surfing and came across your website.
    I hope you’re achieving your goals you set when you retired.
    I was able to retire from Boeing and continue to work in the rocket business with ULA in Colorado. So far ULA is working out good. I’m learning the Atlas rocket since their last PLA M.E. in Denver took another job. They were forcing him to move to Decatur and he decided not to go.
    I’ve found Colorado to be a very beautiful place to live, however the winters are way too long. The nice thing is space. Where I live the homes are separated by acres. It’s a nice break from the SoCal suburbs.
    Good luck; Matt
