November, 12, 1984 is my start date at Bio-Rad Lab.  25 years ago today.  Wahoo!  Can  you see the confetti falling?  Man!  that is crazy. There are people who work here not  25 yet.   I have been here half of my life.  Missy had just turn 5 and was two months into her Kindergarten year.  Next  thing you know she is 30 and  I am a Grandma to  two fabulous kids.  Time flies while your living your life. 

 The Rad was much different  back in 84 then it is today.  We were so small and informal. (With emphasis on informal)    Just like a big family   company where everyone knew each other.  It was always lively and lots of fun.  I  can still remember the day  the owner told us during a luncheon that the time had come for us to start acting like the big company we had become . From that day forward the company became more and more corporate .  I don't know half the people  who work here any more.  We started out in 3 buildings and have grown to so many different  locations I have lost count.  Sometime's it is years in between before you run into an old friend . But that doesn't change anything because we know all about each other.   We have been through the birth of many a  baby,  weddings,  crazy parties, divorces, and the passing of our loved ones and coworkers.. The friends I've made at Bio-Rad are very special to me and  will cherish them for the rest of my life or at least till I quit.  JK  : )

Congrats on 25 years with Bio Rad, Tami!  That's great stuff.  Time does fly, doesn't it?  You done good- from job to family to friends; everyone adores you.  Can you believe we've known each other for over 43 years?!  Man o man o man......good stuff.

WOW Tam! Congrats! How time flies. For the time we got to work together it is just a small fraction of your time there however, I know we will be friends till the end.  Some of the best times in my life was during the time working with you.  I was 23 and you still think of me as 23, thank you...but you were there while I experienced alot of life changing events from the good ol' partying days to my sudden marriage and my growing family ....and of course all the DRAMA in between...I'm so glad to have met you and glad I got to know you for the wonderful person you are and not that mean girl that almost made me leave on a whim.....At one time I was just the "temp" and now 11 years later I know we are "friends"
