Most of you know that what I write about music and hifi here at Jeff’s Place (as well as Positive Feedback) produces no real income for me.
In fact it’s just the opposite, it costs me a lot to write about many of the things I write about because they are personal purchases (Altec A5’s & A7’s, vintage McIntosh electronics, Westminster loudspeakers, Leben CS-600, Artisan Fidelity Thorens TD-124 and Classic 301 turntables, etc.) that I have made over the years.
I write about hifi and music because I love hifi and music, but my real income comes from my day job working for the US’s Office of Science as a physical scientist.
Time has a way of zooming by, and it is now time to for me to retire from my position with the Office of Science!
I have been involved with science for almost 40 years now. First as a student, then by doing a bit of research and teaching, and finally by working with a group of really terrific people at the Office of Science’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
It has been exciting for me to see the rise of proteomics and genomics, the advancements and possibilities of high-performance computing, to be a federal project director for high-energy physics, supercomputing, and climate change research aircraft projects, and to witness the many other inspiring areas of scientific progress in my lifetime.
I want to say “Thank you!” to all the great people I have worked with over the years, it was a true pleasure to get to know you, I wish you the very best that life has to offer, and I hope to see you around!
I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my life, and enjoying more time with family, friends, and my hobbies (like hifi, music, bicycling, travel, etc.).
My crystal ball is a little fuzzy on the life changes that are sure to come. Jeff’s Place might be moving to a new city in the future … or?
For the foreseeable future I’ll be continuing to write here at Jeff’s Place and Positive Feedback, and anything you can do to help me defray the cost of running Jeff’s Place would be greatly appreciated.
Anyways, it has been a true pleasure to be able to write for you about hifi and music, and I hope to be able to continue to do so into the future.
As always, thanks for stopping by, and may the tone be with you!
