Day 101 - Working for the man... maybe!

As a heads up, I've been toying with the idea of moving to a different blogging service. While I like the use of, I think the use of Word Press may offer me some better opportunities in the future. Currently I'm posting on both sites, but I think by the end of the year I will be using strictly Word Press. If you'd like, you can visit the new site at:

The majority of my day today has revolved around a certain someone getting a contract position in Winston-Salem. That's right I received an email today from a head hunter here in Greensboro who said they were looking for someone to do some database SQL stuff for an international company. A questionnaire was sent over and I responded a little apprehensive about the correctness of my answers. The questions were all based upon using queries within databases. Not necessarily my strongest business skills, but ones that I wouldn't mind building up with a six month contract.

Needless to say, I didn't do a whole lot of thinking about fly fishing today. I still thought about fly fishing, but it wasn't always at the foremost part of my brain. For instance, knowing that I needed to bone up on SQL I decided that I should buy a book on the subject. While at the bookstore, I found my feet taking me to the fly fishing section and I glanced over the titles to see if anything new has been added since my last visit (nothing was, schucks!).

An unexpected surprise did occur today that got my ego going a bit. My angling buddy John received the flies that I sent him today. In a bit of excitement he tweeted about them and how he looked forward to trying them out. It made me happy and I had to puff out my chest a little bit. It is always nice to have your work appreciated/admired. I may have to open a sideline business to keep my hands from being idle, especially if the response is this good. I think maybe that might not be a bad idea. At the least it will provide me with some beer money and some material for my own patterns.
