    That's great, Newf! Haven't seen you around in a while.
    Count your blessings!

    Newf, that is fantastic! Congrats!

    Cootie, that's great news. What a relief that must be for you. My BIL who has been going through the same thing with his company, just voted and they accepted a 3 yr contract which relieves quite a bit of uncertainy for him. He planned on retiring next year, but not knowing the outcome of this last contract, it was pretty scary for him. He could have lost his pension, the company could have closed, or he could be secure until he retires. We are all happy for him.

    That is really great news Newfherder.

    I know I'm new here, but- my son was awarded primary custody of his kids this week. There's a down side though and it seems to be that I will have to continue to be prey to my ex-daughter-in-law and the considerable nastiness she can dish.

    Hey, surely less so than if she had custody and you ever wanted to see the grandkids! Glass half full! (Well, you did post on the good news thread! )

    Congrats, Newf!

    Yes, it's by far good news. I've never been the type that could ever tell half a story though.

    You'd be surprised at the nastiness she can dish, though I am hoping once she gets over losing primary custody, her food stamps, WIC, and (the horror) now having to pay my son child support she'll settle down some. I hope so, I've already had to ban her from the inside of my house.
