    The video was very interesting, thank you for sharing it. Your new series sounds very cool, I hope to see it someday. And I may try my hand at cut out art at some point.
    DAT, I might not be back on the forum for a while. I have been so busy with work lately, and it may get busier in the very near future.
    I appreciate all of your help, we'll talk again someday, my friend. Thank you. Peace. :peace:

    green tear drops done . It's very green round here . Beautiful greens . This trail by the coast was very tropical. These big leaves are from skunk plants. They smell like skunk and have long yellow stalk like flowers in bloom. Lots of ferns. IMG_2785.JPG

    There is a steep valley in this loop trail that houses a massive patch of these skunks. I am going to try to get down in it to get a closer look but I have a fear that there are large black snakes living amongst them.

    Hi Ambs. Loving those greens:)
    Always lurking in this thread. Thought I'd share something Mrs D just finished (my contribution was drilling holes and mounting lol). We have still got to put in hooks for door keys (spaces left for that). Its right above our door matt mosaic.
    Take it easy sis and groetjes aan Mr DAT.

    Resemblance is uncanny!

    Although I am only seeing his nose and mouth with the remainder of his face being obscured by the hoodie and shades :bigjoint:

    I hope I didn't offend him. And I hope he looks like a younger EVH. You are a fairly young couple aren't you?

    Cheers,
    Mo

    Lol. I didn't tell him you though he looks like Michael Stipe because he hates R.E.M. Lol . Young couple? Well that's a matter of perspective I guess. :bigjoint:

    @DST can you please give me some expert advice. I'm going to be offered a promotion to Lead Tech at my job and want to tactfully ask for more of a pay raise then they might have in mind.

    Are they nickel and diming you Ambs?
    First do some research and check out market rates for the position.
    It may be worthwhile to look into the pay grades the company offers for these positions...a senior role normally spans a few salary grades.
    How easy is it for them to find a new "you"?
    Normally in a rec-con position we have the benefit of being able to use counter offers, although some companies don't like this as they feel they are the best and why would you want to work for anyone else.
    I think in these positions you have to ask for more than you would be happy with (without being unreasonable and saying 1 millions dollars bahahahaha).
    How did they find you? If they used someone like me its already going to cost them time and 15-25% of the annual salary paid to the recruiter anyway.
    I would be open and honest with them. I doubt they'll ask you what you want but when they tell you then you have to be open and say what you want. Tell them and then shut up and let them figure it out. Don't stary telling them why you feel you deserve more until they ask.
    Without knowing if its a small medium or large company, privately owned or publicly owned its difficult to say how they'll react. Regardless, they'll have a budget for the role and your goal is to get as much of it as possible. Aim slightly higher then negotiate. If you want to go into more detail just email me and we can chat a bit more openly. Its always worthwhile to throw your cv out to another role to strengthen your bargaining hand.

    IMG_2944.JPG Thanks DST. I found a salary range on salary wizard. Com (do you know what your worth) for my city and the position and I will use it in negotiating. I will also contact HR and request a pay scale for the position.
    Im about half way . I was thinking about your wife's beautiful rain mural today as I cut out some raindrops. (::weed:That's kinda weird . Very different perspective but same idea. :peace:

    Good luck Ambs with the negotiations.
    Just the other day we were looking at pictures and saw our rain wall without the mural, looked soooo weird. Funny how a wall becomes part of your life:)
    I like this latest range you are doing. Would be very calming to have in a babies room (you are not planning anything, lol j/k - I know your feelings on ickle ones, haha).

    hahah, thanks, so the mural your wife did is also a painting , if so did someone else do it , perhaps Mondrian? I think it was a really cool idea, conceptual like that , makes you think. Yeah the one im workin on now is very boring and I have a writing poetry /diary with an entry of how boring it is and how im ok with that. writing helps like therapy. I was thinking that it might look good at work next to my new million dollar scanner. We moved locations into a new building and i might sneak it in and up and see if anyone even notices. So that is cool you mention calming and putting it in a babys room because most of my patients act like BIG BABYS! lol:D:P(: i will be looking to hire another tech to work with and so doing interviews in the next month. I might need some more advice in that area DST.:bigjoint:most of the people in my field are complete nut cases. lol. i guess i cant be too picky. One potential candidate friend of present colleague is currently working on a pot farm :leaf:and is a super great musician, so he might be perfect.(like that has anything to do with the actual job);) :weed: Have a nice weekend!

    It was a picture of the wall before she painted the mural on it:) It's not removable unless you want to paint over it. I am not sure if anyone else done the rain thing before. Hiring is an interesting side of the table to be on. Feel free to ask away...I would say one of the most important things is to be able to get a reference (preferably a chat) with a previous (relevant) employer (preferably the last one, and preferably not some manager of a pot farm lmfao*). If you get that then the candidate is normally fairly gen up. Plus it covers your arse if anything does go wrong with the new employee.

    Not saying the guy working on the pot farm won't be any good, just get a reference from a job that relates to what they will be doing at your work:)
