    @Dan Foley

    If you have a position open in your company, then contact me. I don't know if I would be much use turning wrenches. I get pain in my shoulders at times when working on jobs and it slows me down a little. I do have a lot of industry knowledge though and am great at technical sales, design and troubleshooting.

    Otherwise just passing the word around is a big help. I enjoy travelling, tradeshows and doing presentations so I am thinking of something on the rep side of the business either working for a manufacturers rep or directly for a manufacturer.

    John I am getting ready to retire Jan 2021. My business is for sale if you are interested. In case you don't remember I do training on Gas Heating and gas related appliances. We also do training on Mod/Cons and gas conversion burners along with combustion training. We are also the training facility for the state of RI for the limited natural gas and propane licenses.

    Tim,

    That sounds like a great opportunity but I don't have the funds available to me.

    I'm not real sure why someone would want to live in New York when a person can make a comfortable living in Texas, if they got their master plumbing and master HVAC license.

    What an odd statement this is.

    It's not surprising though.

    You can pretty much use it as a template.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I don't want to live in Texas any more than Texans want to live in New York I guess.

    I'm pretty sure Texans don't want someone from NYC living in Texas either :)
