    Indeed.

    The poor man's version of good biscuits and gravy:

    One quart of Half and Half
    Two rolls Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
    One can biscuits
    One three quart saucepan
    5 generous tablespoons of flour
    One flour duster

    - Slice portion of one roll of sausage into six patties, fry them in saucepan (prevents grease splatter) and set them aside, leaving grease in the pan.
    - Dice up remaining sausage with the second sausage roll and cook to brown in the saucepan.
    - Add Half and Half to saucepan with the sausage therein and bring to 320 degrees (med to med high setting)
    - Wait for the mixture in the pot to start showing heat fumes
    - Now use flour duster to add flour slowly in the saucepan to avoid clumping to the mixture in the saucepan
    - Begin cooking biscuits, usually 14-25 minutes depending upon brand
    - Keep stirring the pot and dusting with flour until thickened.
    - Reduce heat to low

    When done, split biscuits apart and apply generous amounts of sausage gravy on serving plate
    Add microwaved for 30 s. two sausage patties on top of plate and serve with cold milk in freezer frosted glasses.

    Serves 3-4 assuming 8 biscuits per can.

    Naps will come upon you about one hour afterwards.

    Well, if money isn't the prime motivator, a generation of kids in need of solid male role models could use more of them in the teaching profession.

    That's where I'm going for a third act after hanging up the scales of justice. And there's fast track programming for people with degrees and life experience. You can have an Alternative Masters in Education in short order. I pulled mine together 2 courses at a time over two years. You could do it in half that time if you weren't held up by something else.

    A thing to consider, at any rate. There's a real need.

    What are the things you are passionate about?

    You are passionate about eschatological topics, so you could write a book.

    What are your secular passions?

    Due to downsizing, I unexpectedly lost a job with Intel Corp. in 2004 that I assumed I would retire from. I turned that hard providence into a consulting business doing the same thing I was doing at Intel (wireless communications engineering intellectual property) into a consulting business. Guess who was my first customer? Yes, Intel Corp. They remain one of my primary clients, too. The event also made it possible to work from home. My wife became very ill soon afterwards, requiring my daily care, so the whole life event was meant for something meaningful to me (Genesis 50:20). I did not know that at the time, but I do now.
