All,

I too want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and may the bottle collecting in 2017 be rewarding and plentiful! 

I have not been as active recently due to taking on a new job.  For the past 24 years I've had my own consulting forestry business managing small tracts of private lands for my clients throughout Northern California.  Being my own boss has been great and allows for much flexibility, but dealing with a business that is closely tied to the whims of the economy can be very stressful during economic downturns.  Fortunately for me there are more job opportunities in my profession right now and not enough Registered Professional Foresters (i.e., licensed) to go around.  As of November 1, 2016 I had to opportunity to take on the role as the 'Forest Manager' of a 30,000 acre tract of timberland with a growing timber company in Northern California.  Transitioning away from my business and trying to "learn the ropes" in my new job position has taken a lot of time away from the hobby.  I'm still monitoring the Forum, and hope to get back to my previous participation level in the collecting and Forum conversations once I settle into the new job.

My best wishes to you all in 2017,

Charll

Glad you have other opportunity options Charll.. With the new reality TV show guy and cabinet coming, every branch of government are in jeopardy. Including Agriculture, and a secretary who will likely be the same as all the other cabinet heads, and will simply aim to shut it down then strip our national lands of every scrap of environmental resources. 

Happy New Year !

Dear Samson, and Everyone Else on the Forum,

      Happy 2017!
I wrote a congrats to Charll, and couldn't find the thread again, to wish everyone Happy New Year!
 After it popped up again in my email list, I got on again.
4 weeks to Chinese New Year - Year of the Fire Rooster! (I'll be 60 in March - I was born in the year of the Fire Rooster).
Best,
Joey

All the best to you Charll with your new venture.  May you be greatly rewarded with this new endeavor.  This year sees a new chapter for us too as we have closed on our office building, a  completed chapter in our story.  I hope to spend more time learning about snuff bottles and collecting a few good bottles in 2017.

 Thanks to everyone for your wise counsel.  It is appreciated more than you will ever know.  Wishing everyone great success in adding to your collections in 2017.

Joey how wonderful to reach a milestone this year.  May it be the best year yet for you!

Thanks Joey and Tom.  We are excited about our new direction.  Thanks for the kind offer Joey.  We will certainly keep this in mind in the future.   Actually we have scheduled a trip to NYC to celebrate.  We are taking our office manager as she has been so helpful to us in our downsizing.   Cheesy
