    In this case I saw the roadsigns for a long time and have been preparing for the turn but still, when it arrives it's a mixed basket of feelings.

    I work for IBM and on 06/12 I was informed there was a "Resource Action" and my services would no longer be required as of 07/12/2013. In other words - I am laid off.

    Good news is I get a decent separation package and even better is my snake hobby/business is built up to the point of my original "plan B" of it being my full time job is viable. I've said for many years I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up - snake breeder. Now it's time to transition to my dream job!!

    Funny to be saying Congratulations to someone who just got laid off, but it looks like it's a huge win situation for you!

    Thanks everyone, Yeah, kinda weird to be happy about being laid off. But look at the new job I'm going to. And I don't have to put up with any more crap from IBM (no longer the company I hired into 32 years ago)

    I will continue my groundbreaking work with BRB's and will still dabble in BCI. Just like I do now but with more focus!

    Congrats on getting to follow your dream! Wish you the best with the breeding! I think most of us would wish to be able to pursue our passions more often

    Well keep in touch. If anythin were to happen to my 7 year old BRB i'll be looking for a breeder to provide me with a rare morph. I got mine from a breeder and wouldn't have it any other way!
