To my blog followers: If you know anyone looking for a job, please have them look at the job openings at the website. Many jobs allow you to work remote from home. You will be working for a company that wins numerous awards every year, lots of benefits, has great management and over the top talented associates. I can proudly say that is the BEST company I ever worked for!!


Today was my last day as a SQL Server DBA and I am officially retired from the workforce. Baby Boomers rule!

It’s hard to believe that I worked in IT for 45+ years in so many roles including programmer, analyst, manager, consultant and SQL Server Database Administrator (DBA). I worked at 2 companies that went from small to IPO to a thriving public company. I also ran a 10 man consulting company for 5 years.

So what will I do in retirement?

Well besides sleep…… Enjoy all the activities I can with my 11 grandchildren and 5 children.

Of course travel! And did I say sleep!!

Oh I guess I will need to keep busy … when I’m NOT sleeping!!!

So to keep busy I be managing the web content on 100+ websites. And that also means some posts here on that will hopefully provide you with SQL Server tidbits, ideas and insights. I will try to post weekly on Thursday at 4pm in case you can’t wait.

Got questions about being a SQL Server DBA or surviving 45+ years in IT or perhaps your stories of retiring from the workforce in IT, just email me at
