    The deal is sealed. We are now officially Infineon. Who was the last holdout for approval? China.

    Iím optimistic about it. I think this merger/acquisition makes us the 6th or 7th largest semiconductor manufacturer in the world. Iíve got an excellent Kraut last name to go along with my work ethics.

    I hear from my D-shift counterpart whom Iíve known for about 30 years, that Infineon gave all of us a raise, right out of the starting gate. It beats a poke in the eye. I canít believe they did that in the midst of all this economic uncertainty. We will also earn more vacation (PTO) than we ever have. Life is good and Iím extremely thankful to be gainfully employed.

    Large German corporations don't hire people, they adopt them.

    Those excellent Kraut last names pay off once in a while!

    My mother's parents came over on the boat from Germany, good hard-working people.
