I retired from professional programming several years ago.

I now work much harder on my wife's ranch. I can expect the usual chores of feeding, watering, and caring for the livestock. The rest is a daily surprise — fix a new problem with the fence, help with a birth, cut firewood, collect eggs, ready livestock for auction, and on and on. On a ranch, there is always that proverbial "mile of fence" that needs fixing. I work harder as a retired person than I ever did behind a desk! Smile | :)

In my free time (what little of it there is), I keep my hand in programming. Most of the software I generate is for my own use here on the ranch.

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept that there are some things I just can’t keep up with, the determination to keep up with the things I must keep up with, and the wisdom to find a good RSS feed from someone who keeps up with what I’d like to, but just don’t have the damn bandwidth to handle right now.
