Being employed is much better than being unemployed.
Work is off to a good start.
Additional note: I made contact with CB, an old colleague from Tokyo who
is another Canadian in Britain (CiB). From what he's said, he didn't
land on his feet, but has pulled himself back up to them and is now
doing pretty well. Glad to hear it.
And the Register has an interesting article about the possibility of
actually mixing up a liquid explosive on an airplane, which is extremely
informative. Totally debunks the need for all the crap that's been going
down at Heathrow all week.
