  •  An old friend of mine moved with his wife... (12+ / 0-)

    ...and one of his daughters planned to move to Port Townsend (and did) after completing a formal program in how to built wooden boats, something he had always wanted to do and was spurred to do in part because living in the cooler, wetter climes was said to be better for his wife's MS than in Los Angeles.

    He finished the program. But when he looked for work he discovered that nobody wants new wooden boats anymore. So he found a place in Port Townsend that restored old wood boats. The problem was the solvents used to strip the boats' finish. He quickly learned he was allergic to them.

    Wound up back at work as an electrical engineer.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
