    30

    Thirty years ago this late afternoon I was in my first vehicular accident resulting in a burst C6 vertebra injuring my spinal cord; diagnosis: burst C6 incomplete C7 insufficient respiratory. My life changed in an instance. I don't if today is a birthday, anniversary or living on borrowed time?

    I went back to college and university and earned two more associate's degrees and my bachelor's from The University of Akron. Job hopped from GLA Finishing Systems to NASA. I'll be with NASA 25 years this September.

    I traveled to China three times in 2006 and 2007.

    Just a short post today for the timeline.

            I work at formerly Lewis Research Center which was renamed to John H. Glenn Research at Lewis Field in Cleveland, Ohio.

                President Trump has a hiring freeze in place right now until he gets his staff all in place then he'll lift it. All incumbent presidents sign an executive order to freeze hiring of government employees. Go to www.usajobs.gov for federal employment. You must indicate you have a disability because you are hired under a different hiring authority than a regular employee. NASA will be very nice to you. Email me at titanium4motion@gmail.com.

                        Why did you go to China three times, did you do it wrong the first two time?? Just kidding, congrats, good job.

                        I've made it 40 but we're both just new kids on the block compared to SCIfor55ys.

                        Good luck on your next 30.

                              I went to China many times before I was injured and cannot imagine going there injured. In awe.
