I work at Richland Newhope Center, and provide adult day services for individuals with MR/DD. It's a very rewarding job. It's not something that just any person can do-you defenitly have to have a heart for it. I absolutly love it. I know I'm making a difference in individuals lives everyday.
I own Cosmic Tattoos in Charlotte, NC.
My wife is the lead artist and a head as well.
We love to meet new Deadheads and all Grateful Dead Tattoos are up to 50% off.
You must be able to pass a simple quiz. Depending on your knowledge level of the dead, the more you know the higher the % you get off your tattoo.
Cool custom designs will also help the %.
Great personality will also help the %.
Well at 41 I am going back to schol for my masters in Social Service and then my doctorate in Public Admin. I want to help those that would otherwise not attend college find a way to do so!

I install new telephone systems in U.S. Embassy around the world. Both new ones and existing ones. I also help out testing the internal speaker systems for general announcement by plugging in my MP3 player and playing some Dead. Great way to check to see that each and every speaker in the Embassy is working. Of course I can only do this after hours, A lot of State Department people are lacking in any sense of humor. I have also been known to brief an Ambassador or two while wearing some tye-dyed GD t-shirts. That and an pony tail really seem to get to them :)
Remember that? I do
I mainly specialize in seafood,(coquilles st. jacques,lobster bisque etc.).I love cooking,I love seafood,and I love the Grateful Dead,and I combine the three.Listening to cd's of Dick's Pick's in the kitchen,wearing tie-dyed chef coats,and conducting my existence in a laid back manner are my ways of bringing the delight of being a Deadhead to this millenium.
If anyone wants to talk about favorite GD jams/Ratdog/Phil & Friends/Jorma,Jack & anything Hot Tuna,or pan searing tilapia,drop me a line.
First of all thank you very much. About 3 or so years ago a well off businessman from Nigeria came to me and told me a story that really touched me. He was on a business trip in the country side in Nigeria and one night he was trying to fall asleep but he could not because he heard a baby crying. So he left his room and went to the where the baby was crying to learn that the child was in very bad shape. He took the child and her parents to the hospital and paid for all the hospital expenses. When he found out that the problem was actually the fact that the child was dehydrated due to diarrea and the solution to this problem was very cheap and very simple he was amazed. The whole situation could have been prevented. So he started a NGO in Nigeria for the distribution of (Oral Rehydration Salt (ORS)) to the poor and his mission is to solve the over all problem that faces his society by educating the population about the use of ORS. Ironically my company manufacturers ORS which is basically salt and Sugar etc. So now we are working together to end the 2 million + children who die each year due to something as simple as dehydration. This stuff costs about 10 Cents per treatment. It is so easy! To learn more about this NGO please go to www.bettercare-ng.org. In the future I plan to do more than just supply this NGO so please people check out the site and maybe there is a way that you can help too. We also supply PSI. www.psi.org.
I get to be an illustrator and I must say that I love my work or "play" as I call it. My inspiration comes from our little girl, our pug Betty, music, animals, people. I work on such projects as logos, illustrations for magazines, websites, books, newsletters etc. Hopefully my art makes people smile and giggle. I love to create whimsical animal and people characters. Another plus is working with others as a team to create the best solution. The internet allows me to easily work with people all over the world which is truly wonderful. Right now I'm working on a childrens book that my brother wrote and I am illustrating. Hopefully we can get the right publisher to take an interest.
