Well that sucks. Hang in there. As one door goes closed, another will open. Sorry to hear. But on the up side you get to enjoy your family.
Being loyal to a company don't mean a thing now a day's. Sad indeed.

Dittos to the sage advice and well wishes offered above. Sounds like a great opprotunity to go into the outlaw catering bizness until another Geek job rears its ugly head at ya. Prayer wheels are spinning furiously on your behalf on this end. Will also keep eyes and ears open for career possibilities.

Sorry to hear James ...it's cool that you have time to relax, and spend time with the kids.

Now how do anybody relax around kids? This might be a clue that you aint got none. Kids is why the Lord gave us jobs and beer joints so to be able to provide an escape mechanism.

Sorry to hear about the job loss James. This economy is really scary. I'm hoping that you find a better position very soon!

Praying that the job you've been waiting for/dreaming about presents itself to you in a few weeks! Enjoy your August with the kids, and cook up a storm! I'm sure when you're back to the grind to support the family, the memories will make you smile!

That sucks. I had 20 years in and was down sized (cute term) with only 4 years to go to retirement.
Now I'm retired and my wife is too (got a buyout this spring).
We are doing well and VERY relieved that we are not in the work force during Obamas trashing the economy. I has to really be a bitch to wonder every day if your job will still be there at the end of the week, month, year.
I hope you can put something together as I did. It really disrupts your life.

Sorry to hear this James. 14 years is a long time to be with any company if you ask me.

I have always considered my work place as an arena for me to do what I do and not so much as a company that I work for. I have this attitude because I know there is no such thing as job security anymore.

Good luck to you.
