As posted elsewhere on the Interwebs, I am retiring from my current profession as a U.S. Department of State Senior Foreign Service Officer in April 2018. I'll have exactly 30 years of service with sick leave counted in (thank you President Obama for that change to retirement).
I'll be taking a thorough retirement seminar from now through the end of April at the Foreign Service Institute at the George Schultz National Foreign Affairs Training Center (DoS FSI at NFATC for acronym lovers).
No fear for my readers of this blog. I'll be active the next day in the STEM/Maker arena. Details to come then. My writing on your favorite topics will be available.
