    So a couple of people know but not sure what may have been passed around..I am getting divorced.  Between that and my new job and the fact my own computer is still in storage I just have a hard time being able to devote time here right now.

    The divorce is going well enough, no lawyers and we are still friendly though a bit uncomfortable around each other. When we actually see each other as we still live over 200 miles apart.

    My job is going great. I am enjoying the new equipment (tilt skillet, steam kettles and a nice set of steam cabinets, had never used any of them before) finally met the regional manager and he liked me and my food. the customers are liking the new catering choices and specials I have supplied. So things are good, I am busy training a couple of people and writing out recipes and production lists and inventory is a pain but I am really liking this job.

    Hope you all here at Cheftalk are good or getting better, hope to be back more often in the next month or so.

    Been married twice, first one for 20 years and the second for 10.  Neither divorce was easy, Gunnar, I sympathize.  Good luck starting your new job and your new life!
