A retired scientist and something of an old geezer, I content myself with puttering about and watching the passing parade from my virtual front porch. My Lady watches my back, and I hers. It's proven to be a good arrangement. My first job when I left grad school was as the chemist at the Port Reading refinery of Hess Oil or, as it was in those days, Hess Trading and Transport. It was my first experience with a 24/7/365 industry.
