Who am I? Well I got the name Aunt Goose from my niece and nephew… sort of. The way it went was this: When I was little my mother called me her silly goose and one day in my nephew’s hearing, she called me a goose when I was being silly. I have been Aunt Goose to both of them ever since.
Down in the River to Pray is one of my favorites.
I used to work for Lockheed Martin and before that I worked for IBM. They were both very different companies to work for. I worked for IBM on the 1996 Olympic Games Ticketing project. It was probably the most fun I have ever had on a job. I preferred the corporate culture of IBM, but Lockheed was close to where most of my family lived. In fact a good majority of my family have worked in that plant over the years. When it was owned by General Dynamics, my Grandpa went to work there in the 1950s. Eventually my Mom and Dad went to work there. They were there when Lockheed took over from General Dynamics. Same jobs different company. At one time, my parents, my brother and I all worked there. Others in my family have worked there too. No one in my family, that I know of, works there now. They just don’t employ that many people any more.After being laid off by Lockheed Martin, in 2007, I went to work for a friend who owned a small web hosting company. I enjoyed the work so much that I talked him into selling to me. Now it has not been all peaches and cream, web hosting is a real “Me too” type of business and people really expect a lot of service for the pittance they pay you, but I really get a lot of opportunity to create websites, which is one of my favorite things to do. Coolest part is that I get paid for it and since I gotta eat, I like doing something I love to do. Not that I mind the service end of web hosting. That has its bonus’ features too. You see, I like people and I get to know a lot of my customers and they get to know me too. I enjoy helping them succeed with their online goals.Check out my Websites and Domains and my resume pages and if you think you have a job for me, please contact me.
