    It is my regrets to have to leave a Company that i have been a part of for six years now. But, due to the lay offs, cut back in hours as well as Pay, I feel this is the right choice.

    This will be my last week at Controlled Automation. There is a company that is in North Little Rock that bought a Plate Burning machine from us that showed interest in hiring me on. One of my bosses from a previous Job from about 8 years ago works for them and told them they should offer me a job. So, after getting hold of me and going for a interview, I am on my way to a new Job with a great company as far as i can tell. I will now be working for Halbert Pipe and Steel out of North Little Rock. And the pay is more than i have ever made in my line of work!

    Thanks to all of you for the prayers and thoughts during the last few months, god works in mysterious ways!! And looks like he has answered those prayers.

    In today's world hearing folks getting work has to be a good thing! LOL
    Change is good every once in a while. Dh worked at AmTran ward bus place in conway forever then the hours went down and he got on at Falcon Jet. Since on second shift but way i see it is that it is better than graveyard! Great insurance too. Hope all is well with you and yours.
