My Job, My Life

Welcome to my world. I am a huge dead head, always have been.(I think my mother listened to The Dead while I was in utero!) I am also a Sedation Nurse for a hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. I get to play with good drugs all day and make my patients "high". I LOVE MY JOB!!! My co-workers call me the bartender and my patients call my their best friend.

Metal Artist AKA Broad with a Blow Torch !!!

After years of "workin' for the man" managing Lenscrafters with a crew of 20 + people and training others in optics and sales... I said " BITE ME"
After moving to Northern Wisconsin " Back to Nature"... I became the artist that I always knew lived in my heart....and being self employed .. you can't get fired !!
I now hold the Patent on the "Copper Cattail Wind Chimes" tm found on the web. I work in copper and bronze and attend many Art shows across the US..
( Guess I'am still just a Dead Head on the Road ) and enjoy my life more than ever.
From the many shows and many friends that have come into my life.. I am truley Grateful!
Check out my art work if you like on the web ... and don't forget to practice random acts of kindness !

Deadhead in Libraryland

I work in the library of Princeton University repairing books in the Preservation Office. Not too many fellow Deadheads here, but there are a few....Any Deadhead librarians or other Deadheads in Libraryland should check out Terry Ballard's page and Dead Librarians blog at: www.terryballard.org/deadlib/index.html !!!

I got a Job!

I got a job trading hits for pieces.
We made wrinkles, advertized them as creases
Not subject to recession!

A Deadhead from way back

A Deadhead from way back when who is still trying to make a difference. I am a scientist doing environmental toxicology studies, and I run a foundation that is looking to support solar energy research. A shrine to the Dead is in my office, inclusive of a stuffedv Jerry doll. It centers me and helps me think thorough the complexities of what I do. I have had about 150 students work with me im my laboratory over the years, and they all know my passion for music and life. Best products of my life are those students and the careers they will follow.

As always, Mutant
