Default What does everyone do for a living?

I'm currently serving in the Army. About 3 more months to go until I get out. 15 years is long enough.

Engineer for 20 years. Primarily nuclear generation, distribution and metering. Wish I would have taken that job offer with Minelab when they were on campus interviewing!

Vlad - I could use any advice you might have on leveling and installing wood floors too.

Retired from a Major NC City as Risk Administrator after 30 yrs. Eighteen hour days from Hurricanes Dennis and Floyd did me in. Now I pretty much do as I want. Woodwork a little, collect stamps, am a licensed Auctioneer. do a little (very little) farming mostly ride the tractor for fun, and metel detect. Just found out I'm going to be a Granddad in August so I have to start planning on spoiling it. You know, puppies, ponies, ice cream, Disney World, etc. Just plain enjoying life!!!

Mechanical engineering for Cornell University, mainly facilities, laboratories, animal suites, etc.

My picture of me at work would consist of lots of sitting in front of puter, papers and drawings. Not a pretty site like installing a wireless repeater.

Ha! Sounds like my life, phantom... Except for the "carpet warehouse mgr", "3 milliom miles chasing gil in a truck" (?) , "farmer" and the Alaska part.

I'm a swamp tour guide in the Honey Island Swamp, photographer, and I paint some. Now I gotta blow the 66 apart and do it all over again... Oh well, idle hands are the devils workshop, ya know...
