I do hope that's true.

I got word on Friday that our Director-General was looking over my early retirement submission and that's when it started to sink in what I actually was doing. I am torn between feeling OK and a bit WTF have I done.

If it helps, in my current job I am earning a bit more than twice the national average (and around three times the average local wage). Despite this, expected price rises in electricity and heating are expected us to put us in fuel poverty (where you are spending 10% or more of your wage on these things). I still feel like leaving is the right thing to do. Do I question if  I am doing the right thing or not? Hell yes, constantly. I am still planning on doing it though. When it is the right time you leave your job, you know it inside. You just need to be sure enough of what you are doing to take that step.

Have they come at you with big reenlistment bonuses? An enlisted man I knew on-base said no three times til just before he left the USAF finally offered him a bonus of an additional year's salary up front for four more years, and he couldn't turn that down.

They don't do offers like that for us. Occasionally a pinch point trade will get offered golden handcuffs to sign on for longer, but you generally have to request them when the offer is open. As we have two applicants for every available job in the RAF, the bean counters are quite happy with the numbers of people joining up. They don't really take any account of the experience they lose or the time it takes to train someone new up (about 14 months of technical training school, followed by 18 months working on aircraft until you really know the system well enough). It isn't within my managements powers to offer me a pay raise by themselves (I am the highest paid cpl in the RAF currently because of a combination of circumstances that arose because of the last time they changed our pay structure combined with my refusal to be promoted), they can't offer me a promotion (not that I want one) and they can't even offer me extra time off. All they can do is offer me a move, and I am happy enough where I am. The only thing that would get me to stay in longer would be a full-scale war breaking out and even then, that is only because they'd just recall me anyway.

Lugosi only played Dracula in 2 feature length films.

I'm not 100% sure but I think it's true: Dracula and Dracula's Daughter?

Close- DRACULA and ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.

I once convinced a man that a bird had crapped on his head, by constantly staring at the top of his head and saying nothing.

I'll be sad if a mind-freak like that isn't true.

This is true. It was a very pale-faced guy who had the coincidently unfortunate name of White (or possibly Whyte).

True or false about me

1. I am unashamedly an Uwe Boll fan.
2. My paternal grandfather came from Cornwall.
3. I crashed our family car when I was seven.
4. I almost knocked a former Prime Minister over.

I am sorely tempted to guess true for all four, but I'll say true to the first three and false to the last one (even though I think it is true).

Believe it or not, all 4 are true.

In 1980, I bumped into someone at a store in Gweru, Zimbabwe and he almost went flying. I apologized, he said it was OK and Dad told me that I bumped into the controversial Rhodesian ex Prime Monster Ian Smith. 😳😳

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
