    Congratulations, BTW do NOT eat anything with poppy seeds before your drug test i.e. bagels, rolls ANYTHING. They can cause you to fail your drug test.

    That's true, opium and other opiates such as Morphine, (and Heroin, which is acetylated morphine) are produced with the seeds from the opium poppy.

    Oh, and congrats on the new job. I hope you enjoy it. O0

    Some of you may or may not know that I had been unemployed for 16-17 months, due to a health issue. That finally got resolved, although we do not yet know the cause. I really needed a job, until I go back to being a traveling Surgical Technologist.

    Thank you for the good wishes on the new job. I have been around the block a few times, and KNOW about the poppy seed thing.

    There is a lot to learn about my new job, but I think I an REALLY going to like it. I will be training for 2-3 weeks M-F 0800-1600. My regular shift will be Sat 0800-1600 & Sun-Wed. 1600-0000.

    PS:
    An alarm dispatcher is the one who monitors alarm systems. So, when your alarm in your home or business goes off, I am the one who responds first.

    I had a friend who was an alarm dispatcher and he had to carry a shotgun for work. Maybe this will be an opportunity start a scatter gun collection. :)

    Enjoy the new job.
