    It took me until I was over 30 to pass 1 country, the US. You're still young so don't fret.

    I crossed that threshold at 23 but then took me a very long time to get to #3. The count went up a bit after I hit 30 as well.

    Do you mean like a different kind of job altogether or a different company/area for the same kind of job?

    So the work party wasn't so bad. The games were funny...and no I did not take part in any of them, lol. It helped that I went with my boss and 2 of my coworkers. I just didn't know what to expect for the first one. If anything, it helped the day move faster.

    First job = mostly technology/process/product development
    Second job = Advanced manufacturing / product development including front end - getting inputs to come up with new designs
    Third job = Manufacturing engineering / Value engineering / Platform/component engineering/development

    All jobs in the same area, life saving medical devices.

    I'm jealous.
    So far I have only managed 18 countries.
    But I believe it will double easily in the next 10 odd years as my kid has the wanderlust bug as well. Has 8 countries done in 6 years of existence😊
    Well that is nice, I'm on 7 at the moment but hopefully I will manage to clock them up a bit more.

    You know, I don't think I need an Amazon eco type device... Really I don't... But that Cortana Harman Kardon speaker looks rather cool. Might put some effort into justifying getting one...

    I've been to more countries than to provinces at where I live. I'm a tourist in my own country still.

    I'm very much like that with Canada. I've only made to three other provinces in Canada so far. One was very close, Quebec. Only six hours driving to Montreal from Toronto.

    Funny thing is, six hours of driving in the EU could easily put you through several countries in some places.

    lol that's ok.. it was in this thread. I'll have to take a look back and see what it was.

    Every now and then, I'll have a thought about a use for that program. For some reason though, I can't seem to keep track of it. I thought I had it installed, but then I remembered I did a full clean install of Win10 on these new drives (SSD and the 3TB spinner) after my previous drives crashed.

    Thanks Laura! Oh hey, I don't know if I mentioned it, but I found a huge used vinyl record store here in town (about 40-45 min away). Decent prices.. I bought 5 records there last weekend for about 30 bucks total. I can't wait to go back!

    You're welcome Ed. 😊

    That's awesome you found that record store.

    BTW I got a new keyboard and a Keyboard for Dummies book so I can learn all the settings on it, since it's a lot different from Hammond organ.

    I'm enjoying learning my new toy and I know I'll enjoy playing it once I figure out the settings and get my hands back in shape. 🎹
