The resultant map is reported to the Army Corp. They review your maps and plans and then tell you what you can and can't do with your wetlands. If you plan to obliterate the existing wetlands, then you have to mitigate that impact by either building wetlands somewhere else close by or modify your development so that you don't obliterate the wetlands. It's a very big thing out here in the arid west. At least, in my line of work, it's a very big thing. You asked.

    But right now, I'm working on a fuels mitigation map for a lot in the Santa Lucia Preserve (which is just a uber-rich neighborhood near Carmel, CA).

    Some good news to share!

    After over six months being unemployed, I now finally have a job! Got the offer yesterday and will be starting Wednesday next week.

    It's not my dream job or my dream salary but any job is worth having in this economic climate! I'm going to be a Sales Assistant in a local branch of the UK's biggest chemist/pharmacy shop chain - Boots. This should hopefully tide me over until I can enter my chosen profession (law).

    Well, obviously I'm posting on this topic. Other than that I just got done writing a practice essay for an upcoming test.

    But now I'm on my PC wasting time before I hang out with friends...

    Hey PW - I loved watching them asleep. Especially having them sleep on your chest. Nice. Saw the pic on your other post - very cute.

    Trying, and failing, to wipe a smile off my face.
