I don't even know if it qualifies as a NB--I've had many in the past few years.

I'm moving back home--sort of. I've accepted a position in upstate NY--where I basically grew up. I spent every summer-and a lot of the winter skiing-here from age 5 to 18.

I start my new job on August 12th, so it's another quick move. I'll be managing a custom car dealership specializing in Corvettes; some very high-end classic cars (including Trans Ams, my favorite) plus late models-Corvettes, BMWs, etc.

It's exciting, scary, and so me

Oh, and there may be another part of the NB--it's much too early to say at this point, though...

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I threw it out to the universe--I've been applying in NY, AZ, NM, CA-whatever struck my fancy. The only interest I received was from NY. I guess it was meant to be.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Congrats! How exciting! It always sounded like your Texas job was very unfulfilling. Good for you for trying something new. Takes guts!

Wow, Sad!! Awesome job!! I'm very jealous... although I'll admit I'm partial to German cars. Keep me updated on the Bimmers

...and I LOVE Saratoga, if that's close. Maybe an upstate GTG is in order...

Yes, Ama. I was actually approached by one of those companies back in April; that started my me on the hunt again. Nothing came of it, but it gave me the impetus.

Kajem--I set up alerts on and; that seemed to cover all the bases.

And hill,I'm up for a g2g anytime! I'll be very close to Saratoga.
