I am advised, by un-named but reliable sources, that we have a new, upstanding Electrical Engineer in the parish.

Congratulations, Zs on your award of MIET

Best regards

Congratulations from me too.......Especially since it has been achieved while self employed.

I certainly have not had time enough to get more educated in the last 5 years - which is very bad I Know.

Wow, gracious thanks. I have to say I was pleased to hear that this morning.

I have a mentor. A man who picked me up a while back at some meeting about GN3 after a random comment I made to Roger Lovegrove about Initial verification and after watching me argue the rebuff (makes me chill to think about it) I was running on gut feeling and out of my depth trying to explain myself. He tells a story something like this; I could take 100 electricians off the street tomorrow and I could teach every one of them to be a designer. Only two of them could become Engineers. I'm honoured to have been singled out as one of the two.

And so it goes that I have a mentor called OMS who writes questions out for me and sends them to me. I sit at home and try to answer them and send them back. They come back with comments of approval or disbelief. I have a file full of useful scribbles from him. He doesn't give the answers, I make a fool out of myself quite often. Slowly I get there.

Mr mentor looked at my proposed CV for this application, told me it was rubbish and sent it back. I did another one.

Just the beginning of the learning curve. I thank you for your congratulations but most of all I thank OMS.

Yours in a DYn11 stylee ( see what I did there?)

Will you stop it - that hint of blushing really isn't a good look with my washed out, care-worn, ascetic, gimlet eyed consultant "hard stare" - it doesn't do to let the opposition know that you have anything approaching blood in the veins, you know

This is all your own doing, Madam - you can't blame me - it was you did the hard graft whilst working full time , I just cajoled you (and perhaps very occasionally, firmly pushed you) into going in the right direction - this is for you, not me.

Edit, I nearly forgot...MCostco, Mlibrary


And now MIET - So, my congratulations, it seems my spies were right - use it wisely, and when appropriate -

Regards

Ah, Greg's Kitchen for those who like a bit of the Ausie Down Under !

I have my own 'Greg' and she makes some of the best cakes, buns, bread et al, - but then I'm spoilt

Well done Zs,

I'm enjoying a beer after a very long and hard week, so I'll raise the next glass to your success

Cheers
