That was an exciting time for me. I formally retired, and it took 2 years from that to be totally cured of the nightmares. I wrote mostly about geology, and the studies I had done at the old company. All of that was ignored for everything the company did after that.
I dumped all my 'boring stories' that I told the kids to put them to sleep at the cottage. Those stories put everybody to sleep, and not a speck has been done for Ontario geology since then. The Bruce black holes ignore everything. They built the 'Niagara Tunnel to Nowhere' ignoring everything. Such fun! A hundred years from now somebody will say that perhaps we should look at geology.
For 2008 I'll go in sequence.
