successfully linked my union bank account to my boa, etrade, and chase accounts. linked etrade back to union, and linked chase rewards to etrade. also have a debit card and a check book (on the way) for etrade, so lots of options.
in other news I attended free training provided by san joaquin county environmental health department in hazardous waste management for the automotive industry. Supposed to be 2 hours, went a little over. Tons of material, way too many acronyms, could easily spend a couple days on the subject. It wasn’t as bad as traffic school but still pretty mind numbing.
