    I am in the Northeast...and it is 27,000 miles away from where you are.... just as sure as I am of my mud allergy, I have absolutely no doubt about being 27,000 miles away

    Nope same pay and hours

    It is but the unit I worked in focused on long term/high level narcotics investigations this new one focuses strictly on the violent offender and groups (narcotics, robbery, gangs, etc...)

    We had a huge turnover in manpower due to a mass retirement so my agency is having to shuffle experience around to keep all the units balanced.

    Just about finished re-editing my book, so I can go back to continuing it. The break definitely helped (and I took out the flogging completely @AngryHobbit )

    What a novel idea... Shouldn't you just assign people to be with their buddies, no matter how toxic the mess becomes... and end up with squads where the "greenhorn" has 10+ years on, and others where the only reason the average years of experience exceeds fingers on the hands of unsuccessful bomb techs is the sergeant who's nearing retirement?

    Oh, wait... did that come out sarcastic?

    I'm not adept at blocking punches to the shin.

    I am glad to hear it. As you recall, my main issue was not so much with the flogging but with the authority to do so - from the source, from which it was supposed to have come.

    Now there is a man who knew how to do amazing writing while on controlled substances. I am still figuring out how to do that. So far... no dice. I have to be sober while writing.

    Well, then... how do you explain we'd made it from where we are to the Northeast in 13 hours? We were not traveling via a TARDIS. It was just a Buick Encore.

    Jokes aside, I have huge amounts of admiration and respect to anyone working in either unit. I have no idea how people do it as their careers. But I do think it's amazing.

    This is making me nervous; I'm going to New York late next week for my nephew's wedding. I don't have clothes for that kind of weather anymore!

    Yeah, it made sense. The mom is not going to be the best person in the world, but I dont think she'd allow that. Taking it out also makes master hillers seem more petulant(?) Which I like

    What, you don't keep a parka around for those chilly Arizona winters?

    Where in New York? Depending on how north, I can assure you you're fine, or inform you you're screwed

    Somewhere in the middle of Long Island, preceded by a day in NYC to see friends.

    I love that everything is so walkable in New York, but not so much when that involves teeth-chattering cold or, worse, slush.

    New York is a fairly large state....I'm way north, but in NYS, in the winter, its generally cold no matter where you are

    Well, how far is far enough? We went to Rochester, NY - that's just across the lake from Canada. Canada IS North.
