    I don't visit here when I'm at work (I work for Shaw's Supermarket), but I do occasionally visit while at college using their free WIFI. The download speeds there are about 1 MB per second.

    I'm currently in that situation but the wife isn't liking it one bit. Seems it's not fair for me to stay home while she has to get up and go to work. Guess I'll be rejoining the workforce at some point.

    And a nice job you are doing of it, GD.

    Mark, I retired 9 years ago at 55---long story. My wife works 10-12 hours a day as a dispatcher in a school bus terminal. It's a very stressful job as she has other duties such as doing payroll, coordinating field trips, charters, and listening to all the crap from irate parents the school district, and all the drivers' problems. She comes home mentally wasted.

    She'll sometimes get a phone call from one of the drivers needing to take off. When this happens she'll be on the phone for 2 hours coordinating with as many as 3 other drivers to split up and cover the affected route. It's added stress that she shouldn't have to deal with, IMO, but she does have to do it.

    I have taken over most of the duties of running the house; cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping and such. Sitting here one night I told her I could get trained and fill in once in a while as needed so I got trained and work part time, mostly doing field trips, sports, and filling in when somebody takes off. Little did I know (4 years now) that there would be times when I would have to work 5 days a week for weeks, or even months at a time. Then all of a sudden things would be good and I would not be needed, maybe for a month or two. It's hard bouncing back and forth, but it does help her and it gives me something to do. I now know all the bus stops and bus routes (30 of them), location of all the schools, backroads, shortcuts, etc so get used as what they call a supersub.

    I've even come to enjoy the challenge of it all. Believe me, there's a lot more going on than just pushing the brake and gas. One thing I've learned is that people drive very stupidly. I always have to be aware of what's going on on the road while sometimes dealing with 50-60 screaming yeemies behind me. The safety of those kids is my primary concern and I take that very personally.

    OK, enough of my rant.
