After three months out of work, I have a new full-time permanent job as an implementation engineer for a medical software company. I have leads that I've been following for months, but this opportunity came with a phone call last Wednesday, an interview on Thursday, and an acceptance call on the ride home from the interview. I completed the paperwork yesterday. I'm very pleased.
I'm the Massachusetts 3rd District Deputy Junior Grand Warden, and we have Fraternal Visits starting this Friday, and my job has a fair amount of travel, but I'm sure I'll work it out to everyone's advantage.
I went to a Table Lodge last Saturday at the neighboring 4th District, and had a very enjoyable time. I noticed that the ritual that was used was closer to the Scottish Rite EA degree than the mainstream York Rite blue lodge degree.
