My name is Bill and I'm located in the Worcester area. I am currently both a corporate trainer (high-tech industry) and the mostly absentee owner of an aftermarket truck/SUV/automotive aftermarket accessories retail store. Due to the corporate job, I only work in the store on Saturdays. My wife runs it the rest of the week.
I'm semi-retired and work in Foxboro for a Natural foods distributor.

Hello I'm Dave, and I keep my name in my signature so I don't forget
I've been a resident of Connecticut all my life, though the nuclear Navy had me on both coasts, and my aviation work took me as far as Alaska.
I've been living in Stratford, CT since 2002.
Should I move out of town you'll notice that my Stats (Public Profile) will change.
Currently I'm back to work in the electrical power generation industry.
To be more specific, I'm a plant operator at a combustion turbine peaking station.
(Combustion turbine as in jet-engine versus a steam turbine.)
(Peaking versus base-loaded. We only run for a few hours when called upon to 'save the day' as when the electrical grid is on the verge of a brown-out or black-out.)
My first civilian career started out as a plant equipment operator at a commercial nuclear power station. I was down-sized out of the utility 19¾ years later due to industry deregulation.
My retraining as an FAA certificated aircraft mechanic and combined experiences lead to my current job, which has been my post-nuclear employment goal.
Besides the two Ford's in my signature, I previously owned:
A Ford Ranger which was 'new' after two model years.
It's first year was on the lot unsold, and for its second year it languished in dealership bankruptcy proceedings.
A Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor, again 'new' with only 12 miles on it.
It was ordered in for the Chief of a local police department.
When it arrived the town was questioning the order placement in the first place.
I had a deposit down on it before the town got their act together.
