News Flash!

August 2013

Big changes in the Pountney household. First of all, the Pountney household has moved from Michigan to North Carolina. The second big change is that I accepted a new job at SunGard Public Sector. This all happened at the beginning of June and things are finally starting to settle down. I love it here in North Carolina and I love the new job!
