Grateful Nurse

I'm a registered nurse currently working in pediatric homecare - visit cases and in-home nursing care of kids many of whom in years past would have been institutionalized or hospitalized longer for their needs. During the summer I took time off and worked at a camp mission in northeastern PA which hosts foster and underprivileged children and teens from NYC. Five busloads of kids come in at a time. It was a high just working with these incredible kids for their ten-day stays. I loved every exhausting minute of it. Hope to do it again next summer. The camp is nearby Mountain Laurel where Rat Dog just played last Sat. night, Aug. 18th. Fabulous show. This venue is only a few years old (built where an old resort used to be) but folks, this show topped ticket sales with 9,500 concert goers, more than they've had yet for any other band. Second highest was for Crosby, Stills & Nash a couple of years ago. Hope they'll invite Bob and his band back next year, and sure hope they'll come! They started for The Allman Brothers. The huge parking lot there is extended by acres and acres of grassy fields all around - filled up!

Cable TV Field Engineer

I work for a Telecommunications contractor in PA. My job setup the signal levels on the forward and return paths then certify the plant to the systems and FCC specs. This job means alot of traveling and looking forward to the Grateful Dead channel on Sirrus to help pass the miles.

Travel

I work in the travel/timeshare sales industry. Good $, but it sucks being the pushy, salesman type guy.

The best job of my life!

I'm a stay at home dad with a 10 month old son named Jerome (guess who he's named after!). Best thing thats ever happened to me. Well, besides my wife! He's an absolutely great kid, and I love spending time with him. Naturally he gets exposed to lots of the Grateful Dead's music, which is great fun for me because he really seems to like it, and I get to listen to lots of great music!

My wife was smart enough to get a good education when she was younger, so she earns more and it makes more sense for her to work while I stay home with our son. I, on the other hand, have been trying to get an art career going for a few years now. Maybe one of these days I'll actually be successful at it.

saving the planet (or having a good time failing..)

I work as a wildlife conservationist, mostly helping local efforts in developing countries to stop the tide of senseless destruction. Lucky me as I get to go all over the place, but am worrying whether any good I might do outweighs my outrageous air travel. Tapes, CDs and now MP3s travel with me. Great fun trying to pick Dead tunes suitable for so many weird, wonderful journeys, places and situations. When i am not away I am supposed to be writing a book, but seem to spend more and more time on this website............................
