New Dead Head in Tech Support

One of the dudes I was working with in Tech Support is a dead head. I wasn't really into the dead, and I placated him a whole lot. Then after he got canned I went to Archive.org to listen to what the whole fuss was about. After listening to my First Dark Star I was hooked. Now it has been a year since I have started listening, and my mother in law (a true dead head) is in shock at my live collection up to now. Man, where have I been all my life. I still work at the Tech Support place and I havent talked to my old coworker since he got canned, but i carry on the dead's spirit here. I guess I'm a Tech Dead Head....

Golf Professional

I am the Assistant Golf Professional at a private golf club in Victoria BC Canada. I also manage the bag room where the members golf bags are stored. In winter we are short staffed and I work only in the bag room. It is pretty chill I have computer speakers with my Ipod plugged in and I listen to the grateful dead whenever I am in the storage room probably 4 hours a day. In the summer I am very busy working in the proshop assisting members and selling merchandise. This summer coming up is the first time that I will be a qualified professional instructor so I am excited about being outside teaching golf and running junior camp for kids. Thare are not any deadheads who I work with however I am surprised at how many members of the golf club come into the bag room hear my GD playing and recognize it and like that is always a fun time of my day.

I build the trucks that drive America

I toil on the line for Chevy. It's a job and hopefully my kids will never do. Right now as I can figure I'm the only Deadhead in the building---scary.

I work inside the belly of

I work inside the belly of the beast otherwise known as a predatory credit card company that shall remain nameless. I work with the customers who unwittingly have been financially steamrolled. If you get me on the phone I'm the best friend you've ever had. I used to play music semi professionally but now my hearing is shredded and I've lost the desire to be around high volume music.

Tree hugger

I am the Assistant Forester for a city in Illinois. Mainly I coordinate our tree planting program, Arborday celecration, help with snow operation, and supervise the mosquito abatement program. I love my job beacuse I get to go out in the field when I want and I have enough paperwork to keep me inside when its nasty out.
If it were not for having such a great job and my family I would not be in Illinois. I love the west and plan to get out there as soon as possible.

hey now, Barbara...

Drop me a PM if you're up for consulting with some folks long distance. i have a good friend in Colorado with a very ailing dog, and she's already using eastern remedies for her. You might have some more current info than what my friend can get in the middle of nowhere Colorado.

for now ... acupuncture for dogs and cats

I just got a new job managing an acupuncture and Chinese herb treatment center for dogs and cats. So far, so good, though I'm working towards the day when my primary calling -- writing -- lets me move from project to project and place to place working via a laptop and mobile blogging capabilities!
