    Is that the same as Tsingtao beer? Have it all the time when I am at the Chinese restaurant in my neighborhood.

    (Maybe I am misspelling it)

    The beer is called "Tsingtao" but to get the correct Chinese characters you'll have to type "Qingdao".....

    Congrats!

    An old saying,

    People get promoted to their level of incompetence, then stay there.

    I hope you get many more promotions.

    That makes it self limiting. Know when to turn down the next promotion.
    I did that 30 years ago and never regretted it.

    I read from another forum that said "A good engineer was promoted and became a BAD manager". Knowing when to turn down a promotion is always a wise move.

    Yes, that is what almost happened to me. I was offered a promotion? to a manager's position but I turned it down. I would have made a lousy manager but preferred to remain a good engineer, I think.

    Congratulations, happyganl! I hope you wanted this promotion, otherwise, as the other guys say, it might not be for the best.

    Best wishes to your family!
